We chose the Vinyls for our daughter's wedding after seeing them at the showcase. We knew we had made the right choice when we experienced their full show at the Glynhill Hotel. They absolutely blew the place apart! EVERYONE was talking about them and we were asked by a few people how we booked them. All of the tables were empty for the entire night because everyone was up on the dance floor. They played the songs which our daughter had particularly asked for and she was delighted. The crucial point was, though, that THEY seemed to be enjoying the evening and this was transmitted to the guests. They performed with a smile on their faces! When I spoke to, and thanked them individually at the end, they all said how great a night it was and how everyone danced all night. We can't thank them enough for making it the best party we've ever had and for making Leanne and Gordon's reception such an overwhelming success. You get what you pay for!!.....and they were worth EVERY penny! Never reduce your standards, Music for Scotland, you're doing a great job and the Vinyls are a class act.

I thought the vinyls were brilliant, they engaged the guests really well. Jenna one of my friends even got up and sang a duet with the lead singer ( the mike was off though!;)
Everyone commented on how good they were

We, and our guests, thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening! Everyone raved about the band and we were asked several times for their contact details.
The whole band were there on time and setting up before I knows it, we popped in to see them before they started and they were very friendly and reassuring! They did a magnificent job of our first song which we had requested them to learn and from that pint on the dance floor was full!
They were great at reading the crowd and kept us dancing all night long! The music was great for all age groups too, and we had a mix of grannies and kids on the dance floor too.
We loved the little 90's revival at the end.
All in all, a great band and we couldn't fault their performance, professionalism or polite manner!

The band were amazing and equally as good when we first heard them at our friends wedding. I requested that the band sing our first song slightly different from the original and it wasn't a problem for them. Everyone commented on how fab they were and I have passed on their details already.

Gean House, 10-Nov-12
They were absolutely fantastic. Nothing was a problem and everyone kept asking who the band were, where they were from, etc. They even learned our second dance song which really meant a lot to us......and they sang it perfectly. We booked them from the demo on their website and went to see them after paying the deposit. Definitely the best band choice for our special day.

All the comments from our guests were that the Vinyls were one of the best bands that they have heard at a function/wedding.
The band entered into the spirit of our themed evening and very quickly worked out the musical preferences of our guests and adjusted their play list accordingly.

We loved the band from start to finish! Even from booking the band could not be more helpful! Replying to our messages straight away and letting is know where they were playing so we could go and see them before the big day! Then when it came to the wedding they were absolutely fantastic! They made our day dor us and we can't thank them enough! Many of our guests have asked for their contact details since and the venue said it was the best band they'd heard! The dance floor was packed the whole night!!!! Ten out of ten from us! Next time I need a band I know who I'll be booking!!

The Vinyls were outstanding from start to finish. The variety and quality of music was excellent, and the dance floor was packed all evening. I would definitely recommend the band to anyone looking to make their special day a perfect day!
Derek Frank, Larbert
Your performance on the night was absolute first class and myself and Leighann could not have hoped for any better.
The variety of songs and the way they were sang was out of this world.
I only had 2 jobs to do in the full wedding, the first was to turn up and the second was to pick the band and I honestly believe I picked the best in Scotland.
I have had phone calls and messages from friends at the wedding asking who you were and where did I find you as they were totally taken aback at just how good you were.
I thank you for making our special day even more special as I truly believe you made our day what it was.
I hope you had as much fun performing as we had listening to you.
I wish you all the very best in your future. I'm sure you will continue to be as good for other clients as you were for us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

The Vinyls were fantastic! All of our guests commented on the band and how great they were. They were extremely professional and the dance floor was full all night. We gave them our first dance request a week or so before the wedding and they were fantastic performing it, they really made the night perfect!!

We choose The Vinyls based on on-line feedback and to be honest I thought they would be good how wrong can I have been they were fantastic!
From our initial contact when we requested the group learn our first dance (which was no problem) to them arriving on site we had no issues at all.
As soon as the music started the dance floor was packed all night, to a range of different songs with Paul hardly stopping to draw breath. Our friends and family only have good things to say about the evening and The Vinyls certainly made it memorable for us all.
I have had 3 people asking for your contact details for potential bookings for next year, I just hope they can get you and have half as much fun as we did!

The Vinyls were fantastic. I have already passed on my feedback to them directly. Many of our guests have raved about the band especially due to their varience in music they sang. They were without a doubt the best wedding band I have ever heard and I am so happy I selected them for our wedding.

AMAZING!!! So happy to have had The Vinyls play for our Wedding. They truly captured our guests and had them up dancing all night! Our first dance was fantastic, my fave was the atmosphere of the last dance though. All of my friends and family were very impressed and I believe one of my friends have booked The Vinyls already for her wedding in November. Great variation in the music played which suited all of our guests. I would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you again for making our evening extra special :)

Crowwood Hotel, 02-Jun-12
The Vinyls were absolutely brilliant. They were so versatile and very accommodating when guests requested songs. The dancefloor was packed all night and I don't think we sat down much ourselfs. We have had lots of feedback from our guests on how good the band were. The atmosphere was brilliant and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Friend have already requested info on the band to play at their wedding in two years as they were so impressed.

The Vinyls were simply phenomenal, we cannot think of any other word to describe them. From the moment the first dance ended and the Vinyls began to perform the dance floor was mobbed. Totally amazing! Evereyone at our wedding commented favourably on the band and asked "Where did you find them?"
The Vinyls made our wedding night rock and we cannot thank them enough for their efforts. We are life long fans.

Wow - these guys are awesome! They had the song selection just right and I have never known the dancefloor at a wedding to be so full from beginning to end.

The Vinyls were absolutely brilliant, ourselves & all of our guests were blown away by their performance. I could not fault them at all, I heard several guests talking about wanting to book them for up coming events. Our first dance is a very important song to us & we both knew it very well before the big day so were nervous about how it would be when the band performed it but we needn't of been it was absolutely perfect & when the played it again to close the celebrations it was just the most perfect gesture. the perfect ending to a perfect day.

The Vinyls were fabulous. I would recommend them to friends/family/colleagues looking for a band. I have already been asked by guests from my wedding how to contact the band! They were fantastic!

Hilton Hotel Dunkeld, 25-Jun-11
The Vinyls were excellent, both in the songs they played and their musicianship. All our wedding guests raved about the band and a number of people have asked for more information on how to book the band as they plan their own events. Despite having amazing sunshine on our wedding day, the band were able to keep people in the marquee dancing all night.
The band were really accommodating in playing a first dance song that was not on their original playlist, allowing my father to join them on stage with his harmonica and also providing a ceilidh set. Any additional requests were met.
A charming and charasmatic band.I heard them previously at a Music for Scotland event. The band sounded even better the second time I heard them.
We have a number of professional musicians in our family and they were all extremely complimentary of the band. I highly recommend The Vinyls.

Fabulous from start to finish, couldnt have asked for a better band to top off a perfect day! We had left booking the wedding band late and were worried we wouldnt find a good band so late in the day. We booked The Vinyls purely on hearing their demos on the Music for Scotland site, then attended the showcase to see them perfrom live, we werent disappointed!! It was good to see them perform alongside the other bands we had liked and know that we had made the right choice. We gave the band little direction and they put the right mix of music together and worked great with Calum Marwick (also Music for Scotland) to slot in a cracking Ceilidh set. We gave the guys short notice to learn our first dance (Al Green Lets stay together) and it was perfect, we even got a reprise at the end of the night. We had also asked Peter at short notice if he was able to fit in a classical number as we had been impressed by his singing at the showcase, again he obliged and did two numbers which were excellent. There have been many fantastic comments from the guests re the band being spot on. Peter - re your classical solo slot, we know its a bit late now but the guests said they hadnt really appreciated what they had heard at the time but that you should have had a standing ovation at the end of your solo, so Peter take a bow! Kevin made the process very easy, the band were a delight. We have passed on "The Vinyls" name to a number of prospective brides :) in the meantime.

The Vinyls were amazing! They were everything i could have hoped for. They were very accommodating, stayed late, played all songs we wanted and the dance floor was full for every song, surely a sign of an excellent band. We are already looking forward to booking them again for future events.

Wow what can I say ! they were amazing they were so enthusiastic and their energy flowed through to all our guests. Peter the lead singers voice was fantastic and the musicians were brilliant. They played all of our favourite songs and even did a ceilidh session which was great fun. My new husband and I loved them and they really made our wedding night a night to remember all of our guests were blown away by them and all said that they were the best band they had heard and seen in a long time. Thank you Vinyls for making our day even better you rock !
Joanne McMahon, Kildare
just back from our honeymoon now in the beautiful highlands and just wanted to let you know that the vinyls were amazing ! All of our guests absolutely loved them and I can't praise them enough ! They never stopped all night ! going from one song to the next and each song performed fantastically, Peter is a fantastic singer and the musicians were brilliant. They absolutely made our wedding night the best ever and will definitely be recommending them to any future brides and grooms. You have a great website and made it so easy for us to choose the band we loved so thank you

Excellent, a huge thank you once again to the guys. We're so pleased with how well you done our first dance, some of our friends thought it was a CD! We wish we had a recording of your set so we could relive it now xxx

Well, what can i say.... The Vinyl's are brilliant! Normally folk comment about how good a 'wedding band' are, however one of the greatest compliments we can offer is that The Vinyl's are one of the best bands that we have heard. All our guests have been raving about how note and word perfect they were the whole night. They judged the atmosphere perfectly and had the dance floor rocking all night with a mix of old and modern upbeat music! I also must say that their down to earth attitude and willingness to suffer our crazy dancing and singing and let us participate in the odd song really made the night! We honestly had the most amazing day and The Vinyl's just topped it off perfectly. Since our wedding at least one of the guests have since booked them for their wedding, which is a great compliment to their performance.
Kevin Ancell, Dundee
The vinyls were the absolutely perfect band for my wedding! The only direction I provided them was that I wanted my guests on the dance floor all night long! the vinyls did just that! They played music for everybody, and for every age group. The compliments I received from my guests on the band choice ranged from everything to: "They played every song so well, it sounded like the CD!" and "There were times where I would go to sit down, and I'd get right back up again". I would recommend the vinyls to any bride for a wedding celebration!
Stephan and gill Lawrie
Our caterer and coordinator recommended the vinyls to us, and we could not have been happier - they MADE our wedding for us, and I'm not exaggerating.
We had 200 people in a tent at a private estate at fingask castle. Richard from music for scotland coordinates all the bands personally - you can email him or call him at any hour and he is always attentive, professional, and knows what he's doing. The band was incredible - each musician an artist, the singer was GREAT, and I swear, I'd never have thought that a wedding band could go from Nat King Cole, to the Stones, to U2, to The kings of Leon in one set, but they did and everything was amazing. We had the time of our lives because of this band. They're wonderful - hire them - they are worth every penny. There are only two things you need for a great wedding, alcohol, and a killer band - these guys will get you 50% of the way there.
Dear kev, peter, the two marks and paudraig.
Thank you so much for helping to make our party successful. You did a great job entertaining us and our guests and we hope to use you again at our future events. I will be glad to recommend you to anyone looking for a professional band that gives the results they promise. It was a great pleasure.
Libby and andrew scott
We thank you for making our Friday, May 14th 2010 wedding day such a special and memorable occasion. Your talent, sound and unique diversity far surpassed any band even considered. You were Fantastic. It was a consensus among all our guests who raved about your performance, both during and well after the event. You were mindful of our personal preferences as well as the guests of several generations. We had family and friends even comment; for the first time in years, they were able to talk to one another without shouting across a table. From the very beginning to the very last song, you had provided us with the ongoing support and assistance and personality we didn't think possible in today's wedding-hysteria world. The attention to every detail could not go unnoticed. The combination of professionalism and genuine sincerity was evident from the start, truly. The charisma, confidence and presentation of the band and every member was just Wonderful. We can not say enough about how impressed all bride and groom, family and friends were with the vinyls performance. We thank you for all the time and dedication you put forth to make our day so special. We will cherish both the music and the kindness forever. '. Best of Luck ahead.
