Mr & Mrs Thomson, Wedding, July 2018

Amazing wedding band, lots of our guests commented on how great they were. Got our first dance song perfect and even learned a few others that we had asked for. Can't thank them enough. 

Mr & Mrs Allan, Wedding, July 2018

Hi there, 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your amazing set on Saturday! I've no idea how you kept going without stopping! Everyone loved it and kepy talking about how amazing you guys were and you really were! It really means a lot that you added in a few Nashville songs too - not many bands would do that! There was always someone on the dance floor - despite it being super warm - it was fantastic! 

Thanks again, 

Claire & Ross x 

Mr & Mrs Tulloch, Wedding, July 2018

Hi Chris, 

Just watned to say thank you so much for a great night of music on Friday. The dance floor was certainly packed. Everyone has said how talented the whole group were. A special thank you for learning Mr Rock n Roll in the break as well. If we are ever in Glasgow when you are playing we will definitely come to see you. 

Once again thanks for making our special day, extra special. 

Mr & Mrs Morrison, Wedding, May 2018

You guys played at our wedding on the 26th May at the Waterside. The booking process was simple and stress free. Chris contacted my wife to see what else they could do for us and if we had any requests. They learned out first dance song and also the song for my wife and her dad. Which was very special to her! The choice of music was excellent. 

We can't thank you all enough for making our day magical!

Jenny & Kristina, Wedding, April 2018

Amazing, there are not enough stars or words to explain how great these guys made our wedding. What a band, just fantastic. Patients of saints trying to explain ceilidh dancing to a bunch of slightly tipsy Irish people. We laughed, we sang, we danced (badly) but we had the best day. Everyone was raving about how great a night they had. Highly recommend, total legends.

Mr & Mrs Webster, Wedding, May 2018

Hi Chris,

Hope your well. We're not long back from our honeymoon. Just wanted to say thanks very much for playing. You guys were great and really made it a great night. Lynz was always apprehensive about having a band rather than a DJ but you changed her mind and she was really happy we picked you guys to play. We actually wish we'd just asked you to play the whole night rather than having a DJ at all.

Mr & Mrs Ingham, Wedding, May 2018

The Invitations played at our wedding on the 6th of May and were absolutely incredible! We booked the guys at a wedding showcase last year when we actually went specifically to see another band but the invitations were so good we booked them instead! The decision was 100% the right one. The night itself was absolutely fantastic with the dance floor full from first song to last, with everybody having an absolutely amazing time! The range of songs is incredible and they kept everybody dancing all night. If you are looking for a wedding band it has to be The Invitations!

Kelly and Richie, Wedding, April 2018

Outstanding band. Played our wedding on Saturday night and I couldn't have asked for better entertainment. Cannot recommend them highly enough. It was a perfect day and you guys knocked it out of the park. I lost count of the number of people asking where we found you.

And Def Leppard! Amazing!

Thanks again,

Kelly and Richie

Mr & Mrs Varley, Wedding, April 2018

The Invitations played our wedding on be 7th of April this year and we can’t think of enough complimentary words to describe them. We had heard the band before, hence why we asked them to play our wedding, but when they played on the night, their set was next-level. Spanning the decades, flowing from song to song, I literally had no idea where the 4 hours went. They also played a ceilidh in the middle of the set!! 

I can safely say to anyone, please book The Invitations for any event. They will not let you down. The only downside is that my wife is still annoyed at me because I didn’t spend enough time with her as I didn’t get off the dance floor all night. The guitarist was ripping up all night. Hope to see them sometime in the future.

Take care chaps!!! 

Adam and Becky xxx

Mr & Mrs Simpson, Wedding, March 2018

The Invitations played at our wedding on 17th March at Logie Country House and I cannot recommend them highly enough. 

The band learned not only our first dance, but the song for my dance with my Dad, which I know meant the world to both of us, as well as a number of other songs that mean so much to my husband and I.

Everyone was super friendly and kept our guests dancing the whole night long. We even had a few ceilidh songs too which was fantastic! 

We cannot thank you enough for the huge part you played in making our wedding day so special!

David McKinlay, Father of the Bride, March 2018

To The Invitations

From the father of the bride. Thanks you so much for the exceptional time at my daughter Sarah and her now husband Ryan's wedding. Everyone lived you and you ticked all the boxes.  And the ceilidh part in middle was brilliant. Sarah asked you to perform a few of their favourite songs and you did so perfectly.

And for me, dancing with Sarah to Wires will stay with me forever. If we get the chance we will always recommend you. We all wish you well.

David & Ruth McKinlay

Mr & Mrs Reid, Wedding, December 2017

The Invitations are the crème de la crème of Wedding Bands. 

Getting married is stressful enough, getting married on Hogmanay add's a little more with everyone expecting the party of all parties. They did not disappoint.

Chris and the rest of the band were outstanding, making sure everyone had a night not to forget. Seamless in the run-up, making sure we any song requests were played, and if not on their repertoire, they learned them! WOW!  

Our night was perfect, they The Invitations had a huge part to play. Guests from all over the world who joined us, commented on their unbelievable talent and knack of filling the floor and playing the right songs to suit the mood at the point in the evening....and when it was time for the bells, they would give Jackie Bird a run for her money!!

If only we could do it all over again!

Mr and Mrs Scott, Wedding, December 2017

My husband and I went to see The Invitations at one of their showcase gigs and got good vibes from them right away. Their communication throughout, from booking up to our wedding day, was excellent. On our wedding night, they were a massive hit, with several of our guests saying they were the best wedding band they had ever seen! They kept the dance floor going all night long with a huge range of tracks that catered to all tastes. The way their songs flowed in to one another made it almost impossible to leave the dance floor :-) 

These guys are very talented and super friendly and we would highly recommend them to anyone!’

Katie!

Mr and Mrs Fitzgerald, Wedding, November 2017

I just wanted to say thank you SO much for Saturday - you guys are absolutely amazing!! Everyone has commented on how good the music was.  You made the party!!

Mr and Mrs Ezady, Wedding, November 2017

Hi guys, now that the weekend's over and we have 5 minutes to ourselves we wanted to say the biggest thank you for being the most amazing band EVER.

Our 1st 2 songs were fantastic and the whole evening was truly outstanding from you from start to finish (I'll even forgive the Chesney Hawkes lol) and EVERYONE was raving about just how good you really were and we both want to say the biggest thank you for being a part of, and for helping make, our day so special. 

You guys were just brilliant !!

All the very best and if we are ever in Glasgow for an evening we will pop in to your local gig haunt to see you play again, 

Thanks again, Mr & Mrs Ezady

Mr and Mrs Benjamin, Wedding, September 2017

The Invitations were our wedding band at Gilpin Lake House and we cannot recommend these guys enough. Professional from start to finish, excellent communications before and upon arrival. Chris was a huge help in putting together a play list and offered great ideas. No ludicrous demands and extremely respectful. 

All guests we spoke to were suitability impressed, along with my now father-in-law who was a professional musician in the 80s (sadly no major hits, so I cannot retire on his hard work) at how well they performed.

When we need a band again, expect to hear from us!!

Many thanks,

Patrick & Joanne

Mr and Mrs Law, Wedding, September 2017

Hi Chris

I cannot thank The Invitations enough for making our wedding reception amazing. Our guests have not stopped talking about you they loved you guys as did we. We hope you and your wife have a great trip to Malaysia next year.

Wallace and Katie Wilson, Wedding, August 2018

The Invitations played at our wedding at Archerfield house in August and they were absolutely superb! We thought they were so brilliant and such fun, our guests didn't leave the dance floor all night. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with, learnt our favourite songs and gave such a great performance we really couldn't have asked for anything better. Totally fantastic. Such great voices and truly a super party!

Thank you very, very much guys, we want to see you again!

Costas & Laurie, Wedding, October 2017

You guys played for us at our wedding on 8th September 2017 at Norton House. Honest to God your video doesn't do you justice. You guys are PHENOMENAL! From initial communication (outstanding, such quick responses to emails & queries) to the actual day, it was an absolute pleasure to have you as our band. Nothing was too much trouble & you even managed to play a request I asked for at the last minute. The dance floor was never empty & every single one of our guests has praised you on such an amazing gig. Will be recommending you to everyone we know planning a wedding! We can't wait to come see you play in Glasgow the next time we're off work. Much love, Costas & Laurie <3

Brenda Malarkey, Wedding, September 2017

We got married yesterday and had The Invitations play at our reception. I have a fear of cheesy wedding bands so when we saw them we loved the fact they had a huge range of songs but also they were modern and fresh too. They did not disappoint, the atmosphere was amazing and the dance floor full. I couldn't believe it when it came to the end of the night! I would highly recommend as they were great to deal with throughout and were fab on the day. Thanks a million guys xx

Mr & Mrs Barr, Wedding, July 2017

We got married on 7th July at The Vu, I found The Invitations through Coast Entertainment, I went to see them once and I loved them! So many people have commented on how amazing you guys are - you played such a good mixture of songs and you kept the dance floor full all night! You learned two songs of my choice for my first and second dances, you took into consideration my list of 'definites' that I picked from your huge set list, and then ceilidh set in the middle got everyone involved! I can only apologise it's taken me so long to write a review, but this is a heart felt thank you from us to you! Mr & Mrs Barr x

Louise-Hunter Hoilies, Wedding, July 2017

You guys are truly AMAZING!! The Invitations played at our wedding in July and they were incredible! They definitely know how to keep the dance floor full and the energy and passion they put into each song is insane! My husband NEVER dances yet at our wedding he was never off the dance floor! All our guests commented on how amazing our band was! Any future brides and grooms that are considering booking The Invitations then do it!! You will not be disappointed!

Penny McGinley, Wedding, August 2017

WOW WOW WOW! Thank you for playing at our wedding couldn't recommend this band more highly. They are so genuinely good and all my guests have been talking about them since. Well worth the money and who doesn't just love a band at a wedding! Thank you guys you really made the evening!

Mr. and Mrs. McKeown - 6/7/2017 - Dalmeny Park

Just wanted to say thank you so much for playing our wedding. We loved your rendition of our first dance song, and were so friendly and warm whenever we spoke. "Six more songs!" was the chant from our guests at the end of the night, a testament to how amazing you guys were. Thank you! Stephen & Gillian

Graham & Claire" Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson - 25/7/2017 - Edinburgh Zoo

Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you all for playing at our wedding on Saturday, you were awesome!

All the guests at the wedding who we've spoken to have commented on how good you guys were, both the standard of your performance and your setlist. I saw so many people up dancing who normally wouldn't be. 

When you played High and Dry at the end of the night, my mates, who normally don't go anywhere near the dance floor at any point, were spotted running from the bar to get involved.

During your much deserved break all the kids kept coming up to Claire and myself asking when the band were coming back on!

Hope you have an awesome day on your wedding day and wish you all the best for the future.

Thanks again for everything

Mr. & Mrs. Hoiles" Marc and Louise - 1/07/2017 - Rowallan Castle

Just a quick message before we head off on our honeymoon to say thank you! You guys were absolutely incredible last night! you kept the dance floor full the whole night! The energy and passion you guys have is insane! Honestly you made our night perfect! We'll review on Facebook etc when we're back, we just wanted to send you a quick thank you :) Thanks, 

Jonny & Kirstin Burns. Mr. and Mrs. Burns - 3/06/2017 - Grangemanor Hotel

Just wanted to say another huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding on Saturday.  

We were really pleased with the band learning and playing our requested first dance song. We received so many compliments about you guys during and after our wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else!

Was nice to get the chance to speak to you at the end of the night as well. Good luck on your stag do and all the very best for you and Gail for your wedding in August. 

Thanks again

Gordon and Shahrazz - 06/05/17 - Glasgow Hilton

I'm just writing to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for being so fantastic at our wedding on Saturday. The dance floor was always packed and all our guests have been raving about how great you were! You really helped make our wedding into the wonderful day that it was! We particularly liked the repertoire and the way you kept the tempo up all the way through.

Thank you also for doing the two Highland dancing numbers and for showing everyone what to do. Shahrazz and I did not have any time to practice unfortunately and I think that showed big time, but everyone loved taking part!

You truly were amazing and we will be recommending you to our friends for future weddings and important events.

Wishing you all the best and we hope to see you again somewhere else!

We are just about to go off on our honeymoon but wanted to say a quick thank you before we leave.

If you ever need any references or recommendations please let me know and I'll be happy to help you out.

Best wishes

Mr. and Mrs. Grant 15/4/2017 - West Brewery

What a band! With a seemingly endless repertoire, The Invitations have an uncanny ability to segue between songs that have no right being played back-to-back and they make it work beautifully. We've had several friends and family members contact us to ask for the band's details and countless more who haven't stopped raving about how amazing you were. Watch their videos on and if you are suitably impressed, trust us when we say that we were too. Trust us even more when we tell you that you ain't seen nothing until you've seen them Live! 

An exceptionally talented bunch of people who are genuinely lovely, clearly love playing together and will give you their all. We are very grateful for the massive part you played in making our wedding celebrations as special as we'd wanted them to be.


Mr. and Mrs. Harley 8/4/2017 - Errol Park

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for Saturday night. Martin and I thought you were great and lots of the guests said the same thing. You definitely helped to make it a fun evening!

Mr. and Mrs. King 28/12/16 - Cottiers, Glasgow

Thank you so much guys! Chris and I had a fantastic time and loved dancing all night to you guys xx

Mr. and Mrs. Benson 30/8/16 - Norton House Hotel

Booked (The Invitations) for our wedding reception - quite simply made the night. Fantastic music, great fun and lovely people. If anyone is searching for your wedding stop here - you won't find any better! Thanks so much guys for making our evening incredible. All our guests have said you are amazing  x

Mr. and Mrs. Fennell 3/9/16 - Logie Country House

Just wanted to say you guys were great, thanks again so much for putting on such a great gig. Absolutely loved our first dance and so many of our guests have said to us that you guys were the best wedding band they've seen. We had the best day & night. Hope you had a good drive back down to Glasgow and we'll see you soon at another gig! Love The Fennells X

Mr. and Mrs. Gordon 10/9/16 - Gilmerton House

Thank you for being totally incredible! You were better than we ever imagined and totally smashed our first dance song! (It was better than the original!!)

I just wish we could go back and do it all again...with a different caterer.(!!) You played amazing music, and brought everyone together. Everyone loved you and the balance of ceilidh and covers was just perfect - there isn't a single negative I can think of.

Thank you so so much, and please let me know if there is anywhere you would like us to review you. Happy to spread the word as much aspossible!! I will be in touch with photos when we get them back."

Mr. and Mrs. Pauline 17/9/16 - Norton Hall Hotel

Hi Chris, Just to say you guys were amazing, so many compliments from our guests.I think some of them didn't leave the dance floor all night.  Thanks again

Mr. and Mrs. Evans 24/9/16 - Doubletree Hilton, Edinburgh

On behalf of Claire and I, I would just like to say a massive thanks for playing an absolutely awesome set at our wedding last night.

We were especially touched and impressed that you learnt our first dance song and performed superbly.

Like you said in your earlier post, the dance floor was jumping and the video you sent us has had us both in stitches with the variety of dancing ability on show, mine in particular being low in the talent department.

All the best with your future gigs, suffice to say we'll be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a great band. Cheers"

Mr. and Mrs. Sterrick 30/7/16 - Argrennan Manor

We have just got home from a post wedding BBQ and all people wanted to talk about was our band - you absolutely blew the socks off our guests. Thank you for helping to make our day so special and we actually think your version of 'You Got The Love' is better than Florence and the Machine. Again thank you so so much and we will get along to one of your next live sets for a post wedding celebration."

Mr. and Mrs. Edwards 9/7/16 - Aswanley House

Thank you for being part of our day and helping us being the party to life. We are not over how amazing you guys are. All guests are singing your praises (please pardon the unintentional pun). We hope you had a blast playing, I was more than a little gutted to be mingling and not dancing at times but such is hosting!...We are greatful you made the long journey up to see us, I'm sure it's not the last time we will be seeing you.

Thank you so much again, we are going to spread your nomination around our family and friends, it is truly well deserved.”

Mr. and Mrs. Tilley 2/7/17 - Falls of Feugh

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Everyone has remarked how much they loved the music and how great you were. Thanks again. Anne & Chris

Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison 25/6/16 - Archerfield House

The Invitations were spectacular! Completely exceeded our expectations with their performance and the way they incorporated lots of extra requests from us... Acoustic version of our favourite song was brilliant! Could not have asked for anything better on our special day! All our guests were blown away! Just perfect!

Thank you so much again for your outstanding performance and customer care"

Mr. and Mrs. Joy 18/6/16 - Mansfield House

We would like to thank you guys for making our wedding dance a night to remember! You were fabulous and got the place bouncing as promised! You are all so talented and super friendly too. Your little extra touch of the video was so lovely. Thanks so much. Mr and Mrs Joy

Mr. and Mrs. Gill 4/6/16 - Archerfield House

Just a little note to say a huge THANK YOU for your enthusiasm, creativity and energy on the lead up to our wedding day and on the wedding day itself. You really were fantastic on the night and everyone enjoyed dancing all night to your amazing sets. Thank you again and good luck for the future.'

Jill & John MacCallum - Wedding 16/7/16

We are just back from our honeymoon which is why we are only just getting in touch now. 

The Invitations played at our wedding on 16th July and they were a perfect choice! They took on board any requests we had and were really adaptable in terms of setting up time. They did a lovely version of La Vie en Rose for our first dance. They kept the dancefloor busy all night long with their fantastic selection of songs and they also kept the children entertained! Everyone has commented on how great they thought they were. They made the night!

Mr & Mrs McClements, Wedding Dalziel Park

Just wanted to say you guys were excellent at our wedding reception and were completely professional through out. The dance floor was always busy and loads of people commented on how great you were. Thanks also for learning our first dance song so beautifully and for being so quick in getting back to my emails about arrangements. I have been recommending you guys to everyone! Thanks Again,

Ben and Zoe O'Hanlon - Wedding 29/5/16 - St. Andrews.

I'd like to extend a big thank you to The Invitations who performed at our wedding on 29th May 2016 in St Andrews. They were absolutely fantastic and we could not have been happier. So many people came up to us during the wedding and afterwards to ask where we'd found them and to remark on how bloody good they were! 

It meant the world to me to have such a professional outfit come to the wedding and completely smash every song they sung. 

Top marks. The best. Thank you! When we get the proper photos back we'll share some with you.

Mr. and Mrs. Carss - Wedding 7/11/15

Lauren and family - Fundraiser 24/1/15

Cancer Research Fundraiser, The Hilton Hotel, Glasgow, 24th January 2015Thank you all for such an amazing performance at our fundraiser, 'The Legacy Ball'. The occasion,as you know, meant so much to my family and your excellent 'customer service', shown byresponding quickly to any queries prior to the event and kindly accommodating our song requestsfor the night, was hugely appreciated. We raised an incredible £22,500 for Cancer Research! Yourpresence undoubtedly contributed to our success. Many of our guests commented on how greatthe band were and you only had to look at the dance floor (which at times was over spilling, it wasso full) to see that everyone was having a great time. We have been asked for your contact detailsby a few of the guests and (if we are ever feeling up to it!) we wouldn't hesitate to book 'TheInvitations' to play at any future fundraisers. In fact, we would love to see you guys again. Sincere'Thank You!' from us all.Kind regardsLauren and family
