A big shout has to go to Chris and The cartel they were absolutely amazing from start to finish. If anyone is looking for a band to hire look no further than The cartel. Pretty much all our wedding guests said it’s the best wedding band they’ve ever seen. The picture at the end sums up the amazing night with the band. Thanks again the new Mr & Mrs Burnett More...

We booked Brother Man for our wedding this month and they were absolutely fantastic. It was great to have both a male and female vocalist as it meant that they were able to play a wide variety of songs. All our guests commented on how great the band were and the dance floor was full all night. I would definitely recommend Brother Man and Elite bands to anyone planning a wedding. Thank you. More...

We booked Echo State with Will Marshall on the accordion and Amore Strings for our recent wedding and were so pleased with the performances on the day and night. Lots of our guests commented on how great they all were, and they kept the dancing going all night! The office team were really helpful in the run up to the day and were always on hand to answer questions. We had asked the band and strings to arrange a particular song for our first dance which turned out just beautifully and made our day so unique and special. Thanks again guys, highly recommend.

ABBEY ROAD: by far one of the best bands I have ever heard. We chose them to play at our wedding dance last night. They were absolutely brilliant and everyone has been talking about them and commenting on how good they were. I will definitely be recommending them to other people. More...

These guys were great, I can highly recommend them for booking a band. I emailed a few times, they were always quick and friendly to reply and towards the date of the wedding kept us up to date with any information we needed regarding the band.
As for the band The Cartel, well they were awesome! The venue was very behind on timings on the day but the band were so patient waiting for the meal to finish so they could set up. From the very first song (we choose Footloose as a communal first dance!) they had the dance floor full right up until the last song. So many guests commented how good they were and they were really friendly and professional guys.
Can't praise Elite bands or The Cartel enough, you shouldn't hesitate in booking!

You guys were great, friendly helpful and every email sent with a request or question it was always answered very quickly with no hassle at all. Always emailing with any updates closer to the wedding. can highly recommend them for booking a band.
We booked The Cartel for our wedding day and they were awesome! We requested bonfire heart for our first dance which is slightly fast to dance to and they made it their own which was fantastic was even better than the original!!. So many guests commented how good they were and they were really friendly.
You both are fantastic thanks again

It's literally the morning after my wedding but whilst it's all fresh in my mind, I wanted to say thank you so much to Chasing Lights for providing the most amazing entertainment last night! All of my guests were blown away by Madeleine's incredible voice, she can SING! The band were so tight and everyone absolutely loved them! I think the music is a huge part of the evening at a wedding and honestly couldn't have wanted more from them. They had such a great range of music from all eras. I'm so happy I was able to have them at my wedding. Thanks so much to Elite too for all of the assistance with booking and giving us an opportunity to see them at showcases etc! - Gemma & Sean x More...

We were soooo extremely happy with Chasing Lights who played at our wedding reception last Saturday - everyone was commenting on how good they were and I never seen the dancefloor empty once! We loved that the beautiful Madaleine and her amazing band had went to the effort of actually learning our first dance (which by the way we absolutely adored - beautiful cover!), took on board song requests and requests for the second, penultimate and last songs and were interactive. I loved that Madaleine invited the 2 sets of parents up for the last song too without being asked as it was my parents first time at a Scottish wedding doing the Loch Lomond Runrig and was so special that I got to do it holding their hands! Honestly the best night of our lives and a massive part of that is thanks to Chasing Lights and Elite Bands. Would definitely use Elite Bands and Chasing Lights again!! Thank you so much for making our night so wonderful!! :) More...

If you're looking for a Wedding band, STOP right here! Elite Bands (Laura) was excellent to deal with throughout. A massive thank you to ECHO STATE for joining us on our Wedding Day 29th Dec. The band, song choices and quality were spot on!! Faces appearing on the dance floor screeching above the music "this band are amazing".....some even likened it to being at a 'gig'. So many amazing memories to look back on - thanks for giving us a night we won't forget and a packed dance floor. Mr & Mrs D xx More...

We booked daytura through Elite Bands for our wedding in Aug 2016. We loved their set and all our guests raved about how good they were. The guys really made the night awesome. We can't recommend them enough if other folk are thinking of booking them as their wedding band. The atmosphere was electric and we wanted to stay on the dancefloor all night.

All the staff at Elite Bands are super friendly, helpful and made the booking and planning super easy too.

Thank you, Steph Xx

On behalf of my wife & I, I would just like to say a huge thank you to Joe & Echo State who played at our wedding on 13th May. We heard Joe singing live at an Elite bands showcase but had only heard the band on YouTube but were confident they would be amazing so booked Joe for our ceremony/drinks reception & the full band for at night. They more than exceeded our expectations & were absolutely fantastic! We loved every minute of it & we had so many comments from our guests about how great a singer Joe was & that Echo State were the best wedding band they had heard. Joe was outstanding at our ceremony & drinks reception & was just such a pleasant guy to deal with from the very first time we met him. We can't fault the service we received from Elite bands, even anytime we phoned the office everyone was so friendly & nothing was a problem. It was an absolute pleasure to have Joe & the band as part of our special day and they really helped to create an atmosphere at our evening reception. We didn't think that there were that many reviews of Echo State online when we booked them but we can not recommend them enough! Thanks a million for everything! Kris & Jen x More...

We had the Lockhearts at our Wedding on 03/11/2017 and they were amazing. Literally the best wedding band ever.

They played to the crowd and the dance floor was never empty.

Kieran and I can’t thank them enough. I would recommend them to anyone. Can’t wait to see them live again.

Chasing Lights were phenomenal at our wedding on June 10th. We had the best day and can attribute part of that to them. They were flexible with our requests, patient with our American guests while they got the hang of the ceilidh dances, and kept the dance floor full all night long. Absolutely recommend them to any bride and groom!

Additionally, Elite Bands themselves were amazing to work with. We, unfortunately, found ourselves in the middle of the Guthrie Castle scandal. Although it worked out well for us in the end, Elite Bands representatives were understanding and helpful as we worked through it, at one point even offering to help us find an alternative venue through them if needs be. That kind of customer service is hard to find.

We just wanted to pass on a huge thank you to The Lockhearts for keeping our guests entertained last Saturday (14/10) at Balbirnie House during our evening reception.

We’ve heard nothing but praise since last Sunday. ‘Best wedding band ever’ was quoted at breakfast, and we couldn’t agree more. Everyone, including Chris and I, had the best night and we can’t thank the band enough - it was exactly how we hoped our reception would be.

We’re looking forward to catching the guys again live. However, we’ll try and remain fully clothed during any further performances of Mr Brightside! Thanks Again! X

The service provided by elite bands is easy with good communication back and forth. We had previously seen one of their bands, The White Band, perform at a wedding and they were brilliant so we booked them for a family party. They didn't disappoint and everyone who attended the party couldn't compliment them enough. One guest is even in the process of booking the band for their 21st! More...

Dear Daytura and team, I got married on 5th December 2015 in Edinburgh at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. I wanted to drop you a note of thanks for the incredible performance you put on for us and our guests. We really researched scottish bands before deciding to book you guys and you did not disappoint!! We have had so many guests say how amazing you guys were and how fantastic the music was! We so appreciate you guys having put in so much effort to make our wedding the best we could ever have hoped for! Thank you so much for learning our first dance for us and for supporting us through the organisation process. You were so reliable and adaptable especially as some difficulties can present with a venue like the museum. Thank you for being so accommodating throughout. What an unforgettable performance. Thank you so so much. All the best for Christmas and the new year, Ashley and Chris Chisholm More...

I've seen quite a few of these bands at the elite bands showcases which are great fun - awesome live music and a bar what more could you ask! Also been up to Jinty's in Ashton Lane and watched Alex from The Lockhearts and Chris from The Cartel quite a few times - amazing banter and great live music for a good wee mid-week night out!

Thanks to Elite bands for helping us pick the most amazing wedding band, 'The Brightside'. For us, our wedding band was such an important item on our wedding list, as a good band really does set the tone for the evening reception. Luckily we came across Elite Bands, who made that very easy for us, due to their selection of amazing bands. The hard part then became selecting which of the amazing bands we wanted...!Kirstin was extremely helpful by recommending the type of band that would suit our needs. In addition, they were able to send us video clips of all bands and we were invited to numerous band showcases, which really helped us in selecting the perfect band for us.At the end of our wedding, ive never heard as many guests saying it was the best wedding band they had heard! Thank you Elite Bands for the wonderful service we received, i would highly recommend you to all future brides and grooms - the selection of bands are first class! More...

We booked Echo State for our wedding in July and all my guests complimented on how good they were, they were funny and we were on the dance floor the whole night! There wasn't one song we didn't like. Joe the lead singer was great and it was nice to have a female singer as well. Any special requests I had for the wedding Elite Bands and the band themselves were very accommodating. I would highly recommend them as a wedding band, any future events that we run we will definitely be booking them again! More...

Great choice of bands that they have on offer, all of which are 100% professionals. As a wedding photographer I've seen them at quite a few venues now and they've all been awesome.
