Weddings are our bread and butter! Wedding ceilidh bands in Scotland are extremely popular and we have the distinct and unique sound to compete in this highly competitive market. We have provided wedding music in Scotland and throughout the UK at hundreds of weddings over the years and no two are the same. That’s why we spend the time really getting to know our happy couples. If practical, we often meet beforehand to discuss your requirements. We’re normally booked 6 months to 2 years in advance for weddings and we’ve got two packages to choose from:

Evening Reception Package.

Our reception package is a 4 hour set with a mix of ceilidh dances, cover songs and disco. Our dance caller loves to really engage with the audience and will talk everyone through the steps catering for the whole audience. Not all wedding bands in Scotland do ceilidh and covers but we throw in some cover songs to give your feet a rest we finish the evening off with some classic disco!

Full Day Package.

Our full day package includes music for your ceremony as well as the evening reception above. Come down the aisle to your favourite pop song, classical or traditional piece – all professionally arranged by us in advance. We’ll also be on hand to play music for your guests’ arrival, adding that personal touch. Let us take care of all of the music for the whole day.

Other Services

We can put you in touch with Pipers, String Quartets, Jazz Trios, Photographers and more. Just ask! In being one of the best function bands in Scotland we have built up a large amount of contacts over the years that you could take advantage of, if a Scottish ceilidh band isn’t quite what you are looking for.


I’m worried that the party won’t know how to do the dances?

Perfect! That is half the fun and what you are paying us for. If you hire us as a ceilidh band, our expert caller – Chris has masses of experience. He will guide your party through the steps with ease… and flair!

Can we see you before we book?

Unlike some function bands in Scotland, we’ll do our best to accommodate this. However, sometimes it is not always possible – this is why we have provided live videos from our gigs on this website. That way you can see, hear and feel the energy in our performances.

How much do you cost?

Double Scotch Ceilidh Band will provide you with a tailored quote for your event. Because no two events are the same, it is difficult to have a ‘set price’ – due to timings, location and any special requests. Our ceilidh band hire cost depends on all these factors and we constantly aim to be fair, competitive and transparent in our pricing. Please contact us for a no obligation quote on our ceilidh band hire cost.

When is my date confirmed?

When everyone is happy, we’ll send you a booking form for you to check over and return to us. As a standard feature for a ceilidh band in Scotland we require a 20% deposit to secure your date. Once you have received confirmation from us that your deposit and booking form have been received, you’re booked.
