Just wanted to message to say thank you very much for such a great wedding. The ceilidh was brilliant and all of our guests couldn’t get enough and the dj was just as good.

Morning!

Well, what can I say? The Jiggers were absolutely BRILLIANT at our wedding last Friday (already been 3 days!) and they created a fantastic atmosphere as soon as they walked through the door. We and our guests loved every second of the ceilidh and were grabbing the business cards wherever they could find one!

Brian the Disco man was brilliant and also very open to request and our first dance – it was perfect!

 Thank-you again and we’ll definitely be recommending you to others and keeping your contact details for future events.

 Thank-you again,

Verity and Scott x      24/6/16     Bishopton, Ingliston Country Club

Gemma and Tim

December 2015 Selkirk, Aikwood Tower

Apologies for how long it has taken for me to write – we returned home to New Zealand a few weeks ago after a fantastic holiday and really wonderful wedding.  I wanted to write to thank the band for doing such a brilliant job – everyone was up and dancing and just loved the ceilidh.  It was a real highlight and, as we hoped, was enjoyed by all ages and a pivotal part of the celebration.  The caller did a wonderful job;  we were all hopeless but that didn’t seem to matter!

Please pass our sincere thanks and appreciation on to the very talented band.

With very best wishes

Gemma and Tim                     28/12/15                      Selkirk, Aikwood Tower

Thanks again.

November 2015 The Cruin, Loch Lomond

John and I are back from our honeymoon and we just wanted to say thank you for doing such a great job with the ceilidh and disco for our wedding. I hope you enjoyed seeing a group of first-time English dancers (and Scots who should know better) make an enjoyable mess of everything! The disco was great as well – there were quite a few sore feet the next day!

 

Thanks again and all the best.

Yvonne Moffat

November 2015 West Brewing, Glasgow

I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of all of the VisitScotland team, the NBC film crew and Alan & George to you and The Jiggers for a wonderful ceilidh. It was lovely to meet the band. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and clearly passionate about what they do.

 

Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again in the future! If you could pass this message of thanks on to the band that would be greatly appreciated.

What a party! Many, many thanks for helping to make our Daughter’s wedding day so amazing.  The ceilidh music and covers had everyone up dancing from the first dance to the last.  The dance floor was never empty and I have never seen so many people still on the floor after 4 hours of energetic dancing.  The play mix was perfect.

Raymond

November 2014 Oran Mor, Glasgow

I wanted to let you know that The Jiggers did an excellent job for the Prendergast wedding party at Oran Mor on Saturday, and the feedback was great from guests who enjoyed both the ceilidh and disco sections.

Well done to all of your team.

Antonia

October 2014 LifeCare Centre, Edinburgh

I wanted to let you know how fantastic The Jiggers were on Saturday night. We had a fabulous ceilidh – I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, and it was exactly what I’d hoped it would be. The Jiggers really provided a wonderful atmosphere. The music was great, and the calling just right – enough, but not too much. As soon as the musicians started playing, I felt we were in secure hands, and could relax and enjoy the party.

At one point, I felt that numbers were thinning out, as some people were leaving early, and I wondered about closing the party with a last dance or two. But Dougie judged that there were still a good number of people, and plenty of life left in the party. I trusted his judgement, and he was right – we continued on for another half an hour, and it didn’t feel that the party was dragging on or dwindling at all. That professional experience of managing an event was exactly what I was hoping The Jiggers would provide, along with the music, and they did!

Elizabeth

October 2014 St Andrews in the Square, Glasgow

I just wanted to send a wee thank you email to the band – they were absolutely brilliant on Saturday night. I will definitely be recommending them to friends.

Everyone commented on how good they were and they created a great relaxed atmosphere for us all to enjoy.

I’m just disappointed I don’t have another ceilidh to organise, otherwise I would be booking them again!

Rachel & Pete

September 2014 Roman Camp, Callander

Just a wee card to say thank you for our fantastic evening reception at our wedding at the Roman Camp Hotel on the 6th September 2014!

What a brilliant ceilidh and disco – the dancefloor was never empty!

Thanks again, you guys are fab!

Lara

June 2014 Harburn House, West Lothian

I just wanted to drop a note to thank you for all your help with booking and planning the band for our wedding, and please could you also pass on our thanks to Morag, Andy and Greg for doing such a great job on the night? We were probably quite a tough crowd, being mostly English people with absolutely no ceilidh skills at all, so it was great that they managed to get so many people up and dancing! Everyone had a good night and enjoyed the dj music afterwards too, so thanks very much to the band for ensuring a brilliant night!

Carrie & Steven

June 2014 Houston House Hotel, Uphall

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping to make our wedding night at Houstoun House Hotel on Saturday 14 June fantastic.

In fact my sister and fiance are so impressed that they’ve already booked you for their wedding next July.

Mr & Mrs Allan

July 2014 Carberry Tower, Musselburgh

July 2014 Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow

­­­Mark and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and the band who played our wedding on saturday at the Grand Central Hotel. They were absolutely fantastic and almost all of our guests commented on how fabulous they were.

Your guys really had the crowd going and I don’t recall any one moment where the dance floor wasn’t full! The mixture of music from the DJ was excellent and catered for everyone! And more importantly, ALL our guests had an absolute ball at the ceilidh!!

It all went extremely well and we are so happy with our choice of band and will recommend you to anyone!

Iwona & Cees- Jan

June 2014 Castle Menzies, Aberfeldy

We just wanted to send a wee email to say Thank You for playing at our wedding. The musicians were fantastic and Brian de Blieck was a brilliant DJ and caller, he managed to keep the dance floor packed during the ceilidh where 90% of guests were new to ceilidh. It was brilliant!

You guys made our day unforgettable, everyone we have spoken to since the wedding have mentioned how great the musicians were and how much they enjoyed the ceilidh. The end with Auld Land Syne was also a really nice touch.

Thanks again for making our day special, we will definitely recommend you guys to anyone!

Maurits & Jo

You were outstanding – thank you very much for setting the tone for a fantastic night. I think you really struck the balance with your introductions and calling for the novices yet the more seasoned dancers were able to give it laldy! Not to mention you are all fantastic musicians and entertainers; I look forward to a chance to dance at one of your gigs in the future.

Thank you so much to you all for playing at our wedding yesterday.  You really made our night.  You sounded amazing! The ceilidh was fantastic.  You taught us the dances so patiently and had us spinning around in no time!  My parents particularly loved “The Altogether”.  You created such a fun and happy atmosphere. So many of our guests told us how brilliant they thought you were and I know quite a few picked up your business cards.
