Lesley & Allan, Wedding, June 2019

We were looking for a wedding band that was a little bit different but whose set-list was still wide enough to appeal to guests of all ages, and The Upbeats more than filled the bill. They started strong by emailing us to thank us for our booking and to see if we had any questions; attention to detail that was later followed by asking us if we would like a particular first dance and advising us on the best choice when we found ourselves torn between three. In person, the guys came across as young, confident and clearly genuinely into their music. Their music had guests up dancing to every track. More than that, they had guests jumping up from their seats and positively running onto the dance floor at times, whether for their rendition of a Beatles classic or The Killers. By the time it came to the last few tracks of the night (the Proclaimers' 500 Miles followed by the Bonnie Banks O’Loch Lomond), we genuinely thought the dance floor might collapse, there were so many people up dancing without a care in the world. Testament to what nice guys The Upbeats are, one even came up to me discretely to explain that, as the bride, I didn’t need to queue for the wedding supper :D A really lovely bunch of guys who felt like a big part of the party. We’d happily recommend them to anyone looking for a young, current, music-loving wedding band.

Thank you guys for a fantastic night at my 40th party on Saturday night. Everyone commented on how great the band were, and your fab set-list kept me on the dance floor the whole night.

Islay Russel, Wedding, March 2018

When we got engaged The Upbeats were the only thing I knew I wanted for the wedding. Having heard them play at a wedding previously I loved their approach, friendly manner and their varied playlist!! I was not disappointed, they were fantastic from start to finish, with many guests commenting on the great music. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending them or using them again for your event. Highly recommended!! Thanks guys!

Claire Walker, October 2017

I have now seen the upbeats a few times in Glasgow and they were fantastic, always a great atmosphere and fun. They play a good variety of music and I really enjoyed the gigs. If I were to get married I would without a doubt have them as my wedding band. Very highly recommended

Reviews

Mr and Mrs Angus, Wedding, 2017

We were lucky enough to have the upbeats play at our wedding. You couldn't meet a nicer and more talented bunch of guys, so helpful before and on the day. All of our guests are still raving about them. They really made the night for us. Thanks guys hope to catch up at one of your gigs soon!

Reviews

Ryan and Kirsty Oliphant, Wedding, 1st July 2016

You covered our wedding on the 1st of July 2016, very accommodating to our requests especially as we had a father/daughter mother/son dance. You played our music we provided and this was great. Amazing selection of songs to suit a range of ages and the ceilidh in the middle got everyone up dancing. Would highly recommend, 10/10 :) 

Reviews

Mr and Mrs O'Brien, Wedding, 19th Jan 2017

We had a fantastic evening, open bar, marriage, friends and family, we got to rock out to some amazing songs. The dance floor was full all night. the guys were so flexible they even allowed us to play a couple songs. Which most bands don't allow. A great night had by all.

Reviews

Mr and Mrs McKenna, Wedding, 2016

Had these guys play at our wedding last year and they were absolutely fantastic. Even 15 months later, we still have family and friends commenting on the fantastic atmosphere the band created for us. On top of that, they are a really friendly and professional group of guys, who just want to provide a brilliant night for everyone! I can't recommend the upbeats highly enough!!

Laura Newman, Wedding, 06/06/2015

We had the upbeats play at our wedding at the inchyra grange. I have nothing but great things to say. They played a great variety of music and had everyone from my nieces and nephews to the oldies dancing. Everyone has commented on how good they were. They were great value for money and even offered to do a ceilidh set for us. Nothing was too much hassle and they didn't mind contacting them with song ideas prior to the wedding. Thank you boys one very happy bride and groom!

Reviews

Audrey & Liam Baird, Wedding, 05/07/2015

After falling head over heels for The Upbeats wedding band whilst watching them perform at Malone's in Edinburgh, we immediately snapped them up to be our wedding band. They were absolutely fantastic! They are versatile, fun, talented and exceptionally accommodating; even to last minute ceilidh requests! We are so full of gratitude to them for making our wedding reception such a special and memorable night for all of our guests (old and young) who could not leave the dance floor from the offset. Guests commented all night that it was by far the best wedding music they had ever heard! Thank you so much boys and all the best for your future; we will be recommending you to everyone!

Reviews

Hannah Stewart, Wedding 27/06/2015

The Upbeats played at our wedding in Dalduff Barn and they were fantastic! The band were a pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much hassle, even to the point that we only picked our first dance 2 days before the wedding. The dance floor was full throughout the evening and there was a good mix music, with even a couple of ceilidh numbers thrown in for good measure. Everyone was really complimentary about them and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for a wedding or any other event. Thanks so much boys for a fantastic party, you were great!
