What a fantastic success our bands had at our first Scottish wedding showcase. Carbon Copy, Celtic Rouge, Defyin Gravity, Elaine Grey all sounded fantastic and took numerous bookings for next year and the year following. It is really important to book your band as far in advance as possible, as the best acts really do get bookings 1-3 years in advance! Our busiest bands have the Saturdays of July booked out for years to come! We are planning another showcase in Dundee in February, and showcases in Glasgow and Edinburgh to follow.
All tartan bands are held to the same standard.
A 3 piece band should never total more than £1000.
A four piece band should never total more than £1500.
A five piece should never total more than £1700.
these general terms don't account for travelling expenses, however they are accurate enough to protect you from con artists! We have heard of 3 piece groups charge £1400 for a 3 hour performance. It's rediculous. However if you don't shop around various bands then you cannot gauge the price or worth of a 3 piece. This isn't supposed to be like shopping for car insurance - it's your wedding!!! Agencies are great - they provide bands that have had to go through various (expensive) measures to promote themselves, and prove they are worth the money. Being on an agency removes a bands ability to over charge directly. They can ask you for any sum directly, where as here on Tartan - they all have a set fee which does not alter regardless of season or schedule.
Here here on Tartan you can find a group from £325, soloists duets, trios, 4 -10 piece! Hopefully this answers "How much does a wedding band cost?"
Another incredible musician added to the roster, "wandering man" Peter Dyer. Having travelled the globe performing in Australia, central and Eastern Asia, the USA and all over the UK, Pete is a seasoned musician that has worked crowds all over planet earth. He brings a very distinctive voice and a plethora of guitar styles and skills to the table keeping the most musical members of your event wowed.
Pete is available as a soloist for daytime events playing acoustic music in the styles of Ed Sheehan, Jason Mraz, Raul Midon! He has a band to play evenings which is interchangeable from a 4 piece right up to a 10 piece with horns for the full show band sound where he can work his Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder like nobody else in the UK!
Yep, weddings are expensive but booking your entertainment with us will never cost you more than the band direct! It does however save you hours of searching the web for the perfect performer and you can relax knowing your entertainment is being delivered by top level professionals.
From enquiry to performing we guarantee 5* customer care.
