Thomas & Claire, Wedding, October 2019

Splendid Gentlemen were fantastic, they kept everyone going with fantastic covers and were kind enough to learn our first dance song for us. The communication with us in the build up was brilliant and they did all they could to support our day. 

They were happy to listen to requests from our guests and I didn't speak to a single person who didn't mention how good they were. 

Claire and I would thoroughly recommend them for any event/wedding.

Brian & Jen, Wedding, August 2018

Sorry it's taken me so longto review. Spendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on the 6th April at The Caves in Edinburgh. 

Right from the start, their communication and professionalism was superb.

On the night, they kept the dance floor full and bantered back and forward with everyon. Great range of tunes and you can see they play to the crowd. 

Everyone at the wedding all complimented how good they were. 

If you're thinking of booking them do not hesitate, I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Thanks for making our special day even more special with your performance. 

Hope to get along to one of your gigs soon. 

All the best, 

Brian & Jen 

Rory & Emma, Wedding, June 2018

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on Friday 8th June at Double Tree by Hilton Dundee and were all we could have hoped for and more! They went out of their way to learn our first dance song and made it their own which was absolutely fantastic. The dance floor was never empty once all night! 

Dee and the guys were also as their name might suggest perfectly Splendid Gentlemen and were brilliant with us and all our guests - everybody loved them. 

We can't thank the guys enough for supplying the soundtrack to our evening!

Thanks again, 

Rory and Emma 

Mr & Mrs Fraser, Wedding, June 2018

Absolutely amazing band! We had them at our wedding on Friday and I'm still having our guests comment on how good they are! I was extremely picky when it came to choosing a band to play at our wedding being big music lovers, but Splendid Gentlemen ticked all the boxes! The guys themselves are so down to earth and lovely, nothing was a hassle for them! They gladly accepted requests from us and our guests which made it that little bit more personal too and covered a variation of genres which I loved! I honestly cannot recommend them enough. A massive thank you for playing for us & I hope to see you all again in the future! Love, Mr & Mrs Fraser x 

Paul & Beccy, Wedding, June 2018

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on 26th May and we have just returned from our honeymoon to a huge amount of compliments about the band from guests of all ages. It's great to know that everyone loved them as much as we did. The band had to compete with football playing and good weather but still managed to win and the dance floor was never empty! The guys were amazing and made my reception very special by learning my requests and playing them like they had known them forever! Definitely the best decision to book Splendid Gentlemen and would recommend anyone to do so. We could not be happier with the success of our reception all thanks to these guys!

Daniel & Emily, Wedding, June 2018

Amazing band and amazing group of guys. Genuine friendly bunch of guys who were very accommodating throughout our wedding reception. Were more than happy to cater to our needs even though we asked for a last minute request for a song a few days prior to our wedding, they had no issues with barely any notice and delivered this with 100%.The band were excellent from start to finish and the dance floor wasn't empty once. Catered to all our guests playing a great range of songs through the decades. Highly recommend these guys as their sound is fantastic and they are generally lovely guys. 

Thanks again, all the best for the future,

Daniel & Emily 

Mr & Mrs McCombie, Wedding, April 2018

Dee and the boys played at our wedding on the 7th of April at the Fairmont, St Andrews and what a bunch of genuine, talented gentlemen they are. We were recommendd the band from friends and although we never saw the band live before our wedding this was never a worry in our minds. As soon as we booked, we knew they were the right band for us. 

Dee was fabulous in the planning of our day. The boys kindly learnt an old Australian family song for my family, which was extremely nostalgic for us. This song was so greatly appreciated by my family, my dad is still raving about it! The band brought a fantastic fresh vibe to our wedding and our dance floor was never empty, I genuinly mean that! We couldn't get some people off the dance floor! 

They were super accommodating to any requests and those they couldn't fulfil they were happy for us to plus in a phoone to play it through their break. This mean a lot to our guests. 

I strongly believe a band makes or breaks an evening wedding reception and this band MADE ours. We are still receving compliments about the boys. True professionals worth their talent in gold! Thank you for helping to create memories that will last a lifetime. Mr and Mrs McCombie. X

Caryn, Wedding, June 2018

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding at Piperdam on 1st of June and they were fantastic. Once of the easiest decisions we made when planning our special day and they did not disappoint!! 

Although it was unbelievable hot they were amazing! We've had so many compliments from so many guests!

Genuinely could not have asked for a better band for our wedding, they truly helped make our day. 

Daniel & Emily, Wedding, June 2018

Were more than happy to cater to our needs even though we asked for a last minute request for a song a few days prior to the wedding, they had no issues with barely any notice and delivered this with 100%.

Donald, Wedding, May 2018

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on Friday 18th May and what a band! They were excellent. The dancefloor always had someone on it. They created a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend them. The band were a great bunch of guys. All up for a laugh. Thank you very much for playing at our wedding. And nailing Ram Jam Black Betty!

Fraser, Wedding, May 2018

My new wife and I had the absolute pleasure of having Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding two days ago. They were absolutely phenomenal and everyone was up dancing by the middle of the first song, and kept going until the end of the night. Dee is a class act, keeping in contact on the lead up to the night and even honouring my request from a bit of Metallica. You can not go wrong with these gents! 

Kirsty, Wedding, April 2018

I don't even know where to start with these guys! It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with these gents from day 1 for our Wedding on 3rd April 2018. I did not stop dancing all night and all my guests could not stop saying how amazing a night they had. The guys chose the best music that worked so well and were even doing songs that were just released! As well as that the banter and atmosphere was so relaxed and I honestly couldn't have asked for anything else. I could honestly not rate these guys highly enough and trust me, you will definitely not be disappointed!!! You would be silly not to book this band for your event!

Jus, Wedding, April 2018

A real band who just so happen to do weddings! Everyone at our wedding including suppliers commented on how good these boys are! Their name says it all, we could not be happier with the performance they put on for us. Many wonderful memories made thanks to them x 

Rhona, Wedding, April 2018

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding in March 2018. We weren’t keen on booking a band at first as we didn’t really want to listen to the same sound all night and we struggled to find a band that we could agree on. We saw Splendid Gentlemen at Maggie May’s one night last year and decided to book that night. The variety that they can pull off totally put me at ease - it’s not “same sound” at all. Our dance floor was full all night and we have had so many compliments since - the atmosphere the guys created in the venue was brilliant. I’ve recommended them to anyone who’ll listen and will continue to do so!

Adriana, Wedding, April 2018

No words to describe how phenomenal these guys are. Their down to earth personalities and good banter are reason enough to book them let alone their fantastic ability to get the dancefloor up and going all night long. Their consideration for a range of ages is fantastic and they play a whole range of songs to suit all guests. Dee even offered to play a song in my dad's memory which was very touching and meant a lot to me. If you are looking for a band then really look no further as these guys tick every box. Looking forward to see you all at our friends wedding in July!

Chris, Wedding, March 2018

Just where do I start! You guys are amazing and totally rocked our wedding! Our guests have been extremely complimentary. Nothing was too much trouble, even when we requested a Father of the Bride & Daughter dance medley you came up trumps! Thank you so much. We would highly recommend.

Jennifer, Wedding, March 2018

What can i say.....these guys were absolutely amazing from start to finish at our wedding!! They played our first dance song and we could not of been happier with it!! The dance floor was never empty and all of our guests loved these guys!!! Splendid Gentlemen have that something extra that makes them stand out. We did not want a cheesy wedding band and we certainly were not disappointed. 

Would recommend these guys to everyone....Thank you so much!!!!!!

Allan and Lisa, Wedding, March 2018

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding at Crear in 10/03/2018. Having been given the responsibility of choosing the band the pressure was on.

I stumbled across Splendid Gentlemen and after hearing them at gig I booked them straight away knowing that a delay could mean us missing out.

In the lead up to the wedding I was in contact with Dee on a couple of occasions, confirming he knew the venue and 1st dance song, his replies were always prompt and nothing seemed like too much trouble.

On the night the guys turned up very prompt, they had a brief chat with my wife and I and then got to work.

After our first dance they just played one cracking song after another, every cover was absolutely spot on.

The guys play music with passion and are complete opposites to many a wedding bands I have seen who are too busy giving it big fake smiles and cheesy dance moves.

Our guests all loved the band and the staff at the venue were also very complimentary.

If you are thinking of booking Splendid Gentlemen then do it. You will have no regrets and can thank me later.

Fantastic musicians and great guys.

Thank you very much.

Allan and Lisa Davidson.


Mr and Mrs McColl, Wedding, February 2018

Been trying to find the words to describe just how amazing these guys were last night as they performed at my wedding. From the get go they were professional and just different class. Having a live band I was worried they wouldn't and couldn't play songs for all the different guests that would be attending, how wrong I was!! All my guests haven't stopped taking about how phenomenal you were and I simply cannot thank you guys enough. 

Only negative....is you are all my new wife could talk about before AND after the wedding. It was everything she had hoped for and more. 

To anyone out there who are thinking about hiring a band for any event....these are your guys! 100%, no hesitation! They can take your night from great to unforgettable.


Thank you guys so much again. 

And me and the new Mrs McColl wish you's all the best for the future. 

Cheers.

Craig and Susanna, Wedding, January 2018

Splendid Gentlemen really made our wedding day perfect. Read our crowd really well and kept the dance floor packed the whole night! They rocked on past their scheduled finish time and interacted with the crowd throughout the night, taking requests and playing some less typical songs to keep in line with our theme. I'm pretty sure our first dance choice was a first for them and everyone agreed it was pretty spectacular. We loved the version they played, making it their own! During the evening they took time to speak to us and had a great chat with them at the end of the night. We could tell this is more vocational than anything else for them. Thanks again for a brilliant night guys. Anyone searching for a band for their special day look no further than these amazing guys!

Craig and Susanna!

Martyn, Wedding, November 2017

I got married on 25th november 2017 at the Torrance hotel east kilbride. Me and my wife chose splendid gentlemen as we had been recommended by a friend.


We have had nothing but compliments from those who attended our wedding. Everyone was impressed by the variety of songs played. Vocally the band is pretty spot on and the dance floor was not empty the whole night. The band’s repertoire is very impressive and that shows how serious splendid gentlemen take there music. I honestly cannot think of anything I would have changed from the whole experience.

Keep up the good work guys and i will be recommending you to everyone.


Thanks again for topping off a wonderful day.

Sandy and Emma, Wedding, November 2017

The Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding on the 28th October and we can't recommend them enough. The dance floor was full all night and they played some absolutely brilliant songs as well as a few requests! I don't think I've ever heard The Offspring and Queens of the Stone Age played at a wedding.

The guys finished our day off with a bang and we will definitely be seeing them again! Thanks again to Dee, Scott and Craig for making our night unforgettable.

Thanks Again,

Sandy & Emma Auston


Ross and Claire, Wedding, November 2017

What can I say that hasn't been said before? These guys live up to their name! They played at our wedding at Carlowrie Castle on Saturday and rocked our socks off the whole night!

Taking requests, throwing in some ceilidh numbers and entertaining all the age groups, these guys can do it all and to top it all off they are genuine decent blokes!

Cheers fellas, we'll catch one of your gigs real soon!!

Ross & Claire xx

Craig, Wedding, November 2017

Splendid Gentlemen are an amazing live band! They played at our wedding in October and ensured our day finished in style. They played a range genres and every song was phenomenal. They had everybody up and dancing all night - including my Mam, who never dances! Particular highlights were their versions of Billie Jean, Johnny Be Good, Laid, Wonderwall, and an amazing rendition of Purple Rain! We would recommend them to absolutely anyone and we can't thank them enough for an unforgettable evening.

Mr and Mrs Young, Wedding, October 2017

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on Saturday night and we couldn't rate them highly enough!! The dancefloor was packed from start to finish and all our guests have commented on how fantastic they were! Thank you for such a great night, we had a blast!!! Mr & Mrs Young, Blairquhan Castle, Saturday 21st October xx

Nikki and David, Wedding, October 2017

I would just like to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Splendid Gentlemen were absolutely outstanding!

The dance floor was never empty - literally every song there were loads of folk up dancing! I think every one of the 200 guests raved about you and so many said you were the best band they had ever seen and we agree!

We cannot thank you enough for creating an amazing atmosphere and finishing off our wedding day in style. Everyone loved that you took requests and you gauged the music type that everyone loved to perfection! What a brilliant night!

Thank you again to the three of you! You are amazing singers and phenomenal musicians! We have brilliant memories of our reception to cherish forever. Anyone who manages to secure you for their special date is so lucky!

Thanks again,

Nikki and David x

Steven and Fiona, Wedding, October 2017

I have never ever written a review of anything but feel I need to now. Splendid gentlemen played at my wedding last night. Unbeknownst to them, they were playing in front of a room full of musicians. In attendance were London west end performers, recording studio owners, amateur musicians, a 20yr plus vet from the queens grenadiers guards band and many more. Anyone who knows what it means to play in front of a room of musicians (as I do) will understand what this means. 

Everyone and I do mean everyone absolutely loved their set. Their variety and ability stunned everyone. They kept the pace of the evening going and even once they finished playing live, their short DJ set kept the correct genre and everyone remained on the dance floor. All of these guys are genuinely nice guys and will do anything to please their audience. 

I, before the day, had wanted to ask to sing and play with them on one song on the drums as a surprise for my wife. Their pace and energy meant that was never an option and I was happy to just pay them and enjoy their set. This is by no means a criticism and more of a complement. 

I know my wife wants to see them again soon playing in Maggie May's, but as she is a tone deaf musically inept sort of person, I wouldnt take that as the biggest complenent of this review. 

If you're after a bloody good wedding band with the ability to play a variety of rock heavy tunes (emphasis placed here), crowd pleasing cheese and wedding formalities then look no further.


With our greatest appreciation

Steven & Fiona.

Stevie and Leigh, Wedding, September 2017

We had these guys play our wedding on 16th September. And we really cannot recommend them enough. The dance floor was jumping all night. The guys were an excellent addition to our day and we will definitely be going to see them again. Thanks again to Dee Scott and Craig for making our night unforgettable. See you guys one night at Maggie Mays. All the best.

Christine, Wedding, September 2017

We were lucky enough to have Splendid Gentlemen as our wedding band on 1st September in Aberdeen and cannot express how incredible they were! They played a fantastic mix of songs which kept the dancefloor buzzing from start to end and nothing was too much trouble for them. So many of our guests have commented on what an amazing band we had, and they truly made our night everything we hoped it would be! Genuinely lovely guys with a fantastic talent for what they do. Cannot recommend enough!

Lauren, Wedding, September 2017

The Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding at the start of the week and they were absolutely fantastic! They did an amazing job with our first dance song and had the dance floor full from when they started until the end of the night. Our guests were commenting all night on what a great band they are. They are really nice guys and are very easy to deal with and promptly reply to emails and messages. We would definitely recommend them!!

Chris, Wedding, September 2017

Can't thank the guy's enough for playing at our wedding. Nicest bunch of lad's you could meet! They put on such a fantastic show for us. It really made our evening perfect! Would recommend these guy's 100%!! They listened to everything we asked for and went above and beyond! All of our guests raved about the band and there was something for everyone. Definitely a highlight of our day, thanks again guys!

Theresa, Wedding, August 2017

So this brilliant band played at my wedding on Saturday and they did not disappoint one bit. I booked Splendid Gentleman without seeing them play live, and they were everything I expected and more! I can't recommend them enough! The guys are total gents and even politely stood and listened to my drunk chat at the end of the night lol. Thanks guys you were amazing!

Rachel and Dougie, Wedding, August 2017

We had Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding last week and can't recommend them highly enough. They were fantastic from start to finish and just the nicest of guys on top of it all. We had a very mixed crowd of ages and musical tastes but went with the band we enjoyed listening to the most who weren't too cheesy /weddingy. They didn't let us down... The dance floor was filled all night with our guests, young and old, enjoying the music and fun. We had so many comments on how great the band were. Anyone out there looking for a genuinely brilliant wedding band with their own unique sound still intact, go with Splendid! Thank you lads for making our celebrations go off with a bang. Rachel & Dougie x

Colin, Wedding, July 2017

Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding on 6th July 2017 and no review we could do could truly explain how amazing they were. Prior to the big day, the communication with Dee was fantastic. As we live in Australia, we didn't get the chance to see the guys live and based our decision on the videos on YouTube - although we were never worried about that. From the first dance to the very end the dance floor was full.We also had a few ceilidh dances which the lads were able to explain very well - especially considering it was the first time for half of our guests. During the break the boys were really friendly and happily chatted to everyone. All of our guests gave us glowing compliments about the band and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else looking for a wedding band!I wish we could afford to fly them over to play at our Australian celebration in a couple of months!

Nicola, Wedding, July 2017

The guys played our wedding on the 1st July and we couldn't of dreamed of a better band! They were absolutely fantastic, the loveliest group of guys ever and nothing was a problem for them. They played our first dance which they learned amazingly and took requests from our guests with no problems at all, even playing a bit of a song the didn't actually know! I cannot recommend these guys enough. We have had so many of our guests asking who they were cause they were so good! Thank you so much for finishing off our day so well, the dance floor was never empty and my husband and I certainly enjoyed ourselves along with all our guests! 5 stars is not enough for you guys!

Dana, Wedding, July 2017

Splendid gentlemen played at our wedding on 7th July 2017 and I danced the whole night! You are all so talented and every single person commented on how amazing you were. You were so down to earth which made everything so relaxed. Thank you for making our wedding reception so magical! Our first dance 'Friday I'm in love' was absolutely amazing. I will remember that moment for the rest of my life!

Gary, Wedding, June 2017

The guys played at our wedding on the 24th of June. I have nothing but praise and thanks for the band who were fantastic from start to finish. There wasn't a moment of the night where there was space on the dance floor and so many of our friends and family commented how "splendid" they were!! 

The choice of music was a triumph from modern to old-faves and it suited everyones tastes. 

Our first dance was "Ho Hey" and they did such a great version it was one of the best moments of the whole day for both of us! 

Thank you so much to Dee and all the guys!!

Rachel, Wedding, June 2017

Not only did you rock the dance floor at my sisters wedding in The Glasshouse on 9th June, you also gave my lil dude a drum lesson! You made his night, he's whacking the drum sticks off every surface at home! Fantastic night, you truly are gentlemen! Next time, you come to Ireland!

Mr and Mrs Mudie, Wedding, May 2017

Absolutely outstanding. This band made sure that the dance floor at our wedding was never empty. Cannot thank you enough for being our band - such a lovely group of guys and I would be the first person to recommend you to anyone looking for a band for any occasion. Everyone who came to the wedding have and I am sure will continue to compliment us on our choice. Thank you guys! Love Jenni and Dale(Mr and Mrs Mudie.)

Kareen, Wedding, April 2017

The Splendid Gentlemen played a great set at our wedding on the 12th of April. They arrived on time, with a quick and professional set-up. The band is genuinely interested in providing entertainment and this came across in abundance, they’re fantastic musicians and lovely guys, too, keeping in touch with them was very easy. They played the songs we requested with aplomb with lots of people commenting on how good they were (dance floor was never empty!). We were really touched that they made the effort to say goodbye before their drive home and also saying they had enjoyed themselves. Dudes, we thank you.

Melissa, Wedding, March 2017

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding last month, to say they were amazing is an understatement! I am so glad we chose these guys and would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for a brilliant band. Everything that I asked for was granted and they went above and beyond to not only make sure myself and my husband were happy on the night but also all our guests who were complimenting the band the whole night :) they were very polite and friendly and absolutely amazing singers and musicians. Can not say enough great things about Splendid Gentlemen!! Thank you so much guys for making our day even more special :)

Tasha, Wedding, August 2014

Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding on 09.08.14 - reading through their other reviews I can relate to every single one. The guys are absolutely fantastic, so down to earth and very accommodating. They made that much of an impression that people still ask us who our wedding band were 2.5 years later! What really made our day was them allowing my Father-in-Law to sing our first dance, a request they had every right to refuse but were so on board with it they sat back and watched him, then congratulated him on his performance!

Jackie Duncan - Wedding 20/11/16

Hi Guys, just a quick thank you for playing at our wedding last night in The Piersland. Music choice was excellent and sounded great xx

Steve and Louise Presley - Wedding 26/8/16

Myself and Louise just wanted to say a massive thankyou for what can only be described as an absolute triumph of a gig at our wedding on 26/08/16. You were all so accommodating to requests and even allowing a guest to come up and play moothy. All the guest were impressed and raved about the quality of the band and your rendition of jimi Hendrix red house was impressive. Also the first dance song of make you feel my love was superb at my wife's request for you to learn for her. Will highly recommended you guys as will the many musicians that were in attendance who also raved about you. Thanks again and good luck for the future. 

Karis & Jorg Lehnert - wedding 18/4/15

Hi Sharon, Our wedding has now been and gone!  I just wanted to leave a review of the band - they were amazing!

A few months before the wedding, we emailed Dee to see if there was any chance that the band could learn our very obscure first dance song.  To be honest, we weren't really expecting a yes and had some back up songs prepared just in case!  To our surprise, he emailed back saying that him and the guys loved a challenge and they would give it a go.   They played the song for our first dance and it was even better than the original :-)  They were amazing all night long and had everyone up dancing.  I had so many people say to me that they really enjoyed the music.  So thanks guys, we really appreciate that you took the time to learn our song and helped make our wedding day the best day ever!

Martin & Kirsten Yule Wedding Shawlands Park Hotel September 2014

Hi Sharon'
Just to let you know that Splendid Gentlemen put on a fantastic performance at our wedding last night. They allowed us to request songs on the run up to the night, it was possible to contact them via email, and they always provided a response.
On the night they also allowed a few requests. We got a lot of very positive responses from our guests on how good the band were.
Spoke to the guys at the end of the night and was good to let them know how impressed we were of them.
10 out of 10, would recommend the band as we thought they were brilliant.
Thanks for Coast Entertainments role in organising the recommendation and booking the band.
Regards

Tricia and Charlie Clark (The Lauriston Hotel)

Gordon and Lorriane Chalmers (Barony Castle, Peebles)

Dee, Scott and Craig, Thank you so much for providing a truly awesome performance at our wedding on Saturday 5th July. The dance floor was jumping and everyone was saying how good you were. You definitely helped make the evening special for us. To those reading this, who are thinking of booking them. Stop thinking and do it! Cheers guys. Gordon and Lorraine”



Alistair and Jenifer Lawrie (Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow)

Great band, great performance, great communication in the run up and really friendly guys and loads of guests (most of whom play instruments) said they were one of, if not the best wedding band they had ever seen

Thanks guys made the night”

Alistair and Jenifer Lawrie (Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow)

Booked Splendid Gentlemen for my wedding (Feb 2014). I went to see the band in a pub and right away I could tell these lads could play their instruments. No backing tracks, they are a 3 piece but by far and away one the best bands that I'd looked at for my wedding. I booked them more or less on the spot (without the mrs seeign them)

The band turned up very promptly on the day and were really quick to get set up. They happily learned our first dance number (which was more of a leftfield request) and I was super impressed at how tight a band they were (given they only practiced the week before). Dee has a great voice, the drummer was a class act and its rare in this day and age to find a bassist that plays proper bass (muse- hysteria should be played at all weddings as standard!).

I saw a few bands in the run up, Splendid Gentlemen were easiliy the freshest band I saw, they had good energy and looked to be enjoying themselves (a lot of other wedding bands just looked stale from doing the same set for x years)- these guys are relatively new on the scene and looked hungry and eager to put on a good set and please the audience

They played a great set (they were happy for me pick songs on their setlist), which they tailored to the audience and the dancefloor was full all night. We had an issue with the dress just before the first dance- they were happy to play some hendrix-redhouse until the dress issue was resolved. 

I really couldn't fault the lads at all. Easily the bargain of the century.

Great band, great performance, great communication in the run up and really friendly guys and loads of guests (most of whom play instruments) said they were one of, if not the best wedding band they had ever seen

Thanks guys made the night”

Derek Lietch IDB

Thanks again guys for last night. Even the bar staff were raving about the band. It's always hard playing to a room of musicians but no probs to you. Thanks again.

Chris and Alison Herriot (Ingliston Country Club)

We recently booked Splendid Gentlemen to play at our wedding at Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton. We couldn't be more pleased with how much they appealed to both us and our guests. Their fantastic set list had everyone up dancing all night. So many guests passed comment on how good they were. They are really nice guys, very approachable but more so, very talented musicians. We would definitely recommend them!

Sheila & Steve

“We booked the Splendid Gentlemen for our daughter’s 21 party. They were fantastic!  They are great musicians who have a great range of musical skills and played music which everyone could appreciate enjoy and dance to – the made the whole night a fabulous experience for everyone – they are destined for great things.”




Sarah Swann (Morris) (Comlongon Castle, Dumfries)

"To all the Spendid Gentlemen. Well this is no where near enough to say thank you but I just want to tell you how amazing you are. Starting with meeting you in the bar where you proved to live up to your name and then rocked the house (castle) all night. You got the mix just right. People I have never seen dance were up. I can´t say enough If you need any recomendations ever please let me know. I wish you good look and when I get my photos i´ll send some on. Thanks again. your mum´s must be very proud. xx"




 

Miki & Mel Iwani (Royal Botanical Gardens, Edinburgh)

"Hi Dee and the Splendid gentlemen, Just wanted to say you guys were fantastic at our wedding on Saturday night. Such a great night and to say you rocked the house would be an understatement.

It's Jillian Moon here, you guys played at our wedding at Loch Green on September 21st. I have been meaning to email you for ages but just haven't found the time until now sorry. We wanted to say a massive thank you to The Splendid Gentlemen for making our wedding so special and the best party EVER!!! The band were incredible and everyone has been raving about you guys - you most definitely got the party started! The dance floor was packed from the moment you began and still had guests dancing after you finished, a sign of great music and a great night. Mrs Towndrow would be proud! Thanks again for adding to an incredible day, we had so much fun singing and dancing the night away, as well as watching our usher turn into your biggest groupie! You're all lovely people and we really wish you guys every success for the future.”

We booked The Splendid Gentlemen for our wedding party at Pollokshields Burgh hall and they exceeded our expectations!  Loads of our friends commented on how good they were and everyone, young and old, loved their choice of songs.  They are friendly, polite and I would highly recommend them!
