Southern Dandies

Thanks again for the amazing music on Thursday night. You guys all smashed it - we have received nothing but compliments from our 1,200 guests! It was a very large room to keep occupied but you all managed to keep their attention and most importantly played all of the crowd favorites! You guys are definitely my go-to-band as you are always so easy to work with, so thank you very very much

Southern Dandies

Dee, You rock. That’s all.

Thank you so much for coming along and playing at our wedding, our guests won't stop banging on about how good you were and you surprised a few of my friends with the Shawn Michaels entrance music ha!
Hope you enjoyed your night, all the best.

We booked Southern Dandies for our wedding having seen them live at Maggie May’s. Their style and set list suited our taste in music perfectly and the guys clearly love what they do.
We couldn’t have asked for a better night thanks to the band. The song they learned especially for us was extra special.
Everyone had an amazing time, from floor fillers to our favourite tunes. A number of our guests traveled from outside of Scotland and so the ceilidh music went down really well and there was something for everyone.
The dance floor was full all night and guests kept commenting that the band were so good that the songs sounded like the original artists playing.
Thanks so much guys, we’re already on the lookout for your next gig venues!

We were so impressed with Southern Dandies at our friend’s wedding, we just had to have them play at our wedding on 9th November at the Lodge on Loch Lomond. Quite simply, they did not disappoint and they were absolutely amazing! The guys certainly went above and beyond and learned our first dance song which wasn’t on their repertoire of songs - it was delivered perfectly – and we could not of asked for anything better.

Throughout the night they were fantastic and played a varied mixture of music that ensured the dance floor was full all night. No song was too challenging as our countless guest requests were always met, which pleased the crowd and created an unbelievable atmosphere. Since our wedding so many guests have been in touch to say how good the band was; from their song choices to the interaction with the crowd.
On another note, as over half our guests came from out with Scotland, Southern Dandies had a real challenge of playing a Ceilidh set. However, the guys were amazing and took time to explain all the dances and delivered a great Ceilidh. This was thoroughly enjoyed by all guests and we can’t wait to see the video of this.
We would absolutely recommend Southern Dandies to anyone and we would definitely book again.

We had Southern Dandies play at our wedding at the Lodge on the Loch and can honestly say they were amazing! They were lovely guys and the music was exactly what we wanted! A good mix and played loads of requests. The dance floor full all night so our guests loved them as much as us! Would recommend to anyone and would definitely book again. They are brilliant :) x

Cannot thank you guys enough for playing our wedding at Glenskirlie Castle; from the first moment we spoke the communication has been outstanding and everything was made very easy!
You really did go you above and beyond for us by moving your holiday to make our wedding date!
We struggled to whittle down the playlist as you have an amazing repertoire, but you worked wonders with the list of artists we gave you!
The dance floor was packed all night, and all guests were commenting on how unbelievable the band and playlist was; some saying how they've never seen a dance floor packed with all the guys before!
We will definitely be back to see you at every opportunity; Keep on rollin' baby…

My Son and Daughter-in-Law hired these guys for their wedding.
What a band! Fabulous crowded floor from start to finish. I would highly recommend them!

We had Southern Dandies play at our Halloween wedding and it was amazing.
we have been asked by so many people who the band were as they were amazing. Their song choices were fantastic and we everything from cheesy classics to Metallica and Rage Against the Machine. Fantastic band and such lovely guys too!
If we ever need a band booked again we won’t hesitate to ask Southern Dandies. They really are amazing!!

Southern Dandies

I just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for being so amazing at our wedding at the Dalmahoy Hotel. You guys had so much energy and kept the dance floor full all night!
So many of the guests commented both on the night and the next day how great you guys were. You had a varied repertoire and managed to fit in a lot of our favourites which was great. You also did a bit of ceilidh which our guests loved!
Thanks again! We will certainly recommend you guys.

Southern Dandies played at our wedding on 21 September and I think I said at the time that you were amazing but honestly, I still can’t get over it. Having Southern Dandies as our band was by far one of the top 3 purchases that we made for the wedding.

Every time someone mentions our wedding, they talk about the band. Looking back at our pictures/videos of our day, that dance floor was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was like we had our own superstars playing a private gig for us. It’s honestly mind blowing the energy, excitement, electricity and overwhelming happiness that you guys created, so much so, I couldn’t not tell you (again)!

Keep doing what you’s are doing because more people need to see your work and book you in. They will not be disappointed! xxx

Southern Dandies played for our wedding in Inverness on the 12th September and they were fantastic. I was slightly worried as it was quite a small wedding in a fairly big room and thought it might feel empty but Dee and the guys played such a fantastic range of songs that everyone was up dancing at some point. They were really friendly and happy to take requests. All our guests thought they were brilliant and we’ll definitely be going to see them when they play in Glasgow again.
It’s always a chance when you book a band you’ve not heard play before but it’s definitely a chance worth taking on these guys. Highly recommended.

Southern Dandies

The perfect wedding band.
Being music lovers, finding the right band for our reception was a hugely important part of our wedding planning and from the first time we heard The Southern Dandies, we knew we were on to a winner. From day one Dee’s communication was fantastic and left us in no doubt that we’d entrusted a huge part of our wedding day to the right band.
We went to see the band numerous times in different venues around Glasgow and always came away delighted with the choice we had made. We can honestly say that rather than having any nerves about an empty dance floor, we couldn’t wait for the band to get started. When they did, their hugely diverse repertoire kept the dance floor filled and they even threw in a short, but very popular, ceilidh set which highlighted the band’s range of abilities. Always willing to take requests and with a fantastic ability to read the room, the band’s set list received compliment after compliment from our guests and set the tone for a fantastic night.
We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of wedding band and really can’t thank The Southern Dandies enough for the perfect ending to a perfect day.

Southern Dandies

Finally getting round to doing our review!! I cannot recommend Southern Dandies enough - they were amazing at our wedding at the Cruin back at the end of March.
Music is so important to my husband and I as we go to loads of gigs and festivals so really wanted a band for our wedding that didn’t play your standard wedding music. They were recommended to us by someone at our venue and we listened to them on the way home from our viewing and knew they were the band for us.
Communication was brilliant which was really useful as we actually live in Gloucestershire but I made everyone go back to my hometown for the wedding. Everyone on the night commented on how good the music was and you guys coped amazingly considering the very random requests you kept getting!! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day a success- don’t suppose you fancy a trip down to Gloucester to play at my 40th next year?!

Southern Dandies

What can I say... this band were genuinely the best supplier we booked for our wedding! Southern Dandies were not only so friendly & approachable but bloody hell are these guys talented!
What initially attracted me to the band was their awesome playlist, which included ‘When the Stars Go Blue’ by Ryan Adams - one of my all time favourite songs. This band are not afraid to be different and it definitely pays off to those interested in a unique wedding band. Dee learned and sang the most beautiful rendition of Jason Isbells ‘Cover Me Up’ for our first dance, something which, I could never imagine anyone but the artist performing so well but he really seemed to belt out that song and give it the meaning it deserves- for that I am forever grateful. The band as a whole were fabulous and had the dance floor filled all night. They even stayed at the end to chat with me & my dad - lovely lovely guys!

We can't thank Hireaband and Southern Dandies enough for the excellent service and performance respectively. When we went to see the band at a gig last year I knew straight away it was them that I wanted! On the night they didn't disappoint with most at the wedding commenting how amazing they were!

Thank you to all involved at Hireaband and to Dee and the guys of Southern Dandies for making it so memorable for us. We will def be coming to you's again!

I was really pleased with the band and their performance on the night of my daughters wedding. The band kept the floor full all night and a number of guests commented on how fantastic the band were. I'm so glad we booked and grateful for the guys making the wedding memorable.

Southern Dandies

Absolutely amazing time had by all. Can't fault the lads on their personality, passion and performance! Their set was perfect for our mixed crowd and the selection of old classics and recent hits - plus a bit of Biffy - kept everyone happy and the dance floor buzzing.

Southern Dandies

Southern Dandies were absolutely amazing, I hadn't seen them live before, just watched them on you tube and their website and they sounded brilliant on that but were phenomenal on the night. A lot of folk have commented on how amazing they were, along with their mixed range of songs and just great entertainers. Would definitely recommend them, the guys were lovely to chat to as well. Amazing !!!

Southern Dandies

The guys were amazing!!! We couldn't have asked for more. So professional. Had learned our first dance 'Al Green - lets stay together' and it was perfect. Our friends and family are still saying how great the band were!
Dee, Craig and Scott are so friendly and chatted to guests through out the night too.
They played such a variety of songs. The dance floor was full all night.
Thanks also to the staff at hire a band. We came across the band at your showcase and the girls there to help with bookings and payments were really friendly and very helpful.
Thanks again.

Thank you to Southern Dandies for playing at our wedding reception on Saturday 4th June. Dee and the boys are incredibly talented and we cannot thank them enough for entertaining all our guests and keeping the dance floor full. We received so much great feedback from our guests and we could not recommend this band enough.

Southern Dandies

The band were fantastic, arrived on time, set up without a fuss, played our first dance song so well and kept the dance floor full all night. Would highly recommend them. Our experience of booking through hire a band was great. Phoned them up to enquire about price and dates, they got back to us within a day and booked everything for us then. They contacted us with details of when I was to contact the band about things and when I needed to pay the balance. They were fantastic and made the experience hastle free.

Southern Dandies

Very easy, very quick, amazing band!

Southern Dandies

Hireaband were great with our preparations.
The Southern Dandies..............In a word...........FANTASTIC.
They helped make our day perfect in every way. They interacted with the guests, did requests, conducted themselves beyond professional and of course most importantly they sounded amazing. Nothing we asked for was ever too much trouble for them. They dance floor was never empty. The cost to hire these guys is worth every single penny and a lot more.
If you are looking for a band, look no further than the Southern Dandies.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were an absolutely fantastic band and the best choice for our wedding. Everyone at our wedding was commenting how good they were. They helped make the night! All of them were really friendly and easy going even when asked for random songs etc. Without Hireaband we wouldn't have found them so thank you for that.

From start to finish my experience with Hire A Band has been absolutely first class. The communication and flexibility of all involved has been excellent. The band on the night 'The Southern Dandies' were amazing and extremely laid back in their approach to us borrowing their microphone etc. We couldn't have asked for any more and I would appreciate if you would pass our thanks on to the band.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were our ideal wedding band. They managed and picked the set in accordance with people's tastes and really read the atmosphere very well. They were extremely polite and accommodating to us and our guests, I enjoyed bantering with them on their break. As you can see I gave them five out of five for everything as I couldn't find one single fault with them, I can't thank Hireaband and the band enough for making our day so special. Warmest regards.

Southern Dandies

I would like to say a big thanks to all at hire a band and especially to the great band Southern Dandies that you helped us get. It was a great night and having a band as good as them really helped. Thanks again to you all for the help and I look forward to using the company again.

We recently booked Southern Dandies 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!

To Lisa and all the team at Hire a Band. Can I 1st start by saying I knew I was in safe hands after my 1st email with you. Honestly a great service. Thank you for putting Southern Dandies our way they were certainly that from start to finish. On the 14th at Comlongon Castle, the boys arrived and were just lovely, they went on to entertain the guests all night, they sounded great and they played a fab mix for everyone just brilliant. Once again thank you and I will definitely pass you on and hopefully use you again for, hey who knows if I win the lottery, every anniversary. Really happy.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were absolutely first class in both the run up to our wedding and during their performance. I contacted Dee beforehand to ask if they could accommodate a special request and they were delighted to do so. I asked them to perform a mini set as the Beatles and they were really enthusiastic about it. I got them costumes and they came out dressed up for the second half. It got a great reception from our guests. Their whole performance was excellent, and I found all members to be really great guys. I would recommend this band to anyone

Southern Dandies were phenomenal. All our guests commented on how talented they were. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. They played a variation of music and were happy to pay requests.
