We love performing at Oran Mor, the venue at the top of Byres Road in the west end of Glasgow. The Jiggers ceilidh band plays at ceilidhs there throughout the year, and Oran Mor recommend us to all their clients. It’s a stylish converted church venue with a painted arched ceiling, so you’re sure to get some great wedding photos there, as well as across the road in the Botanic Gardens.
Here is a message we received from a bride & groom after their wedding in June 2012. They had a lot of guests who were not Scottish, but we have no problem explaining the dances to people of any nationality, and they always seem to have a great time. On occasion, we have worked with translators where the audience was exclusively non-English speaking.
We just wanted to say a big thank you to the band who played at our wedding last Saturday. The musicians were just fantastic and the caller was very entertaining. All our Lebanese guests loved the ceilidh and were even swinging each other around and showing off the new moves they’d learned when the DJ was playing later on! We would certainly recommend you to anyone who asks.
Thanks once again,
Paula and Pascal June 2012 Òran Mór
And here is another note we received from a client at the same venue:
Dear Jake, many thanks to you and your band for helping to make our wedding so special. Everyone said how much they enjoyed your music and the banter from the caller! You guys were brilliant and contributed hugely to creating a lovely atmosphere.

Oran Mor means “great music”. The Jiggers ceilidh band play there regularly…maybe that’s why!
