Thanks again for playing at our wedding at the beginning of May in Fife. You lot were great and read the crowd brilliantly! We had so much fun, loved the ceilidh section, was the perfect sound for our beach wedding. Only wish the night could have lasted longer! Patrick was quick to respond to all our emails and questions, would recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding band!

Craig & Kathleen, Wedding, November 2018

We had Twist of Fate for our wedding this year. We couldn’t have picked a better band to make our day even more special. The band played very well even though our venue was very hot as we had a great sunny day. The communication between myself and the band was great always a reply straight away and made everything easy for us. Thank you again Patrick and the team

Regards

Mr & Mrs O'Donnell, Wedding, June 2017

My wife and I were lucky enough to get this amazing band for our wedding on the 28th June. Having seen them a few times previously we were so happy and knew they would put on a great show. Well when it came to the big day they played an amazing set list which had people up dancing all night, apart from when a load of them sat down on the dance floor lol and after we had so many compliments about the band. I think the band loved it just us much as the wedding guests, they even played one of my favourite movie theme songs to get me back to the dance floor when I was at the bar. We will certainly be looking forward to booking them again when we next have a big party. Cheers guys.

Mr & Mrs Cameron, Wedding, January 2017

Well I never thought I'd see the day! My uncle David (who never dances) up on the dance floor. Our guests looked like they had been at an extreme exercise class by the end of the night. We are so glad we opted for The Twists as our band, so helpful and really made our night special.

Mr & Mrs Ferrie, Wedding, October 2017

We had the acoustic duo Laurie and Patrick perform at the drinks reception at our wedding in Edinburgh last weekend. Laurie and Patrick were very professional from the outset, looked great and played brilliantly! They read the crowd well, choosing their playlist dependant on response. We got lots of compliments from our guests and I'm just trying to come up with another excuse for a party so I can get them back to perform!

Jen & Kenny, Wedding, July 2017

Our best wishes Ken and Jenny Reid.

Nicola & Scott, Wedding, April 2018

You were AMAZING!!! Our dance floor was always full and the band played a wide variety of songs to suit all tastes! We paid extra for the ceilidh option which added to our night that got everyone on their feet. Patrick was great at keeping in touch and making sure any special requirements were met including learning

an ACDC song (my husbands favourite band)! Many many of our guests complimented us on how fabulous the band were! The band were more than forthcoming and even stayed longer than contracted for due to fire alarm at our hotel. We can't recommend twist of fate highly enough! Definitely worth booking! 5 star quality!

Joanne, The Hilton Byres Rd June 2016

This is undoubtedly one of the best live bands I've experienced. I attended a rugby ball in May where they had everyone dancing all night. I think one of the main things for me is the range of genres facilitating enjoyment across generations!

I would hire them for any forthcoming function and have recommended to several contacts in Glasgow.

Charlotte Ridgeway

"I was lucky enough to get Twist of Fate to play at our work night out and would like to say they were AMAZING! From our initial enquiry to actually booking they were super helpful and accommodating. On the night itself they played 2 long sets which gave us plenty of opportunity for our very questionable dancing (it's all about enthusiasm not technique). Every memeber is very talented and there was a great mix of music for all tastes. Everything was done so professionally and they had such great energy that if we can get them to play at our next night we will be over the moon!"

Reviews

Mr and Mrs Webber

"So, I had the pleasure of having this band at my wedding although they were unnamed at that time. After having a nightmare of a time trying to book other bands, Patrick offered his bands services. The result was far better than either myself or my Wife (Caroline Webber) could have expected. A top notch band that everyone enjoyed. A selection of music that we wanted at our wedding, we weren't forced to have a set list of songs that they wanted to play. They even went above and beyond by putting a twist on our first dance song to cater it for our needs. Basically in a nutshell, an amazing band that sound fantastic and really entertain a crowd, definitely worth looking into if you need a band for an occasion. They did everything they could to make our special night just that."
