Southern Dandies

We can't thank Hireaband and Southern Dandies enough for the excellent service and performance respectively.

Thank you to all involved at Hireaband and to Dee and the guys of Southern Dandies for making it so memorable for us. We will def be coming to you's again!

Southern Dandies

I was really pleased with the band and their performance on the night of my daughters wedding. The band kept the floor full all night and a number of guests commented on how fantastic the band were. I'm so glad we booked and grateful for the guys making the wedding memorable.

Southern Dandies

Absolutely amazing time had by all. Can't fault the lads on their personality, passion and performance! Their set was perfect for our mixed crowd and the selection of old classics and recent hits - plus a bit of Biffy - kept everyone happy and the dance floor buzzing.

Southern Dandies

Southern Dandies were absolutely amazing, I hadn't seen them live before, just watched them on you tube and their website and they sounded brilliant on that but were phenomenal on the night. A lot of folk have commented on how amazing they were, along with their mixed range of songs and just great entertainers. Would definitely recommend them, the guys were lovely to chat to as well. Amazing !!!

Southern Dandies

The guys were amazing!!! We couldn't have asked for more. So professional. Had learned our first dance 'Al Green - lets stay together' and it was perfect. Our friends and family are still saying how great the band were!
Dee, Craig and Scott are so friendly and chatted to guests through out the night too.
They played such a variety of songs. The dance floor was full all night.
Thanks also to the staff at hire a band. We came across the band at your showcase and the girls there to help with bookings and payments were really friendly and very helpful.
Thanks again.

Southern Dandies

Thank you to Southern Dandies for playing at our wedding reception on Saturday 4th June. Dee and the boys are incredibly talented and we cannot thank them enough for entertaining all our guests and keeping the dance floor full. We received so much great feedback from our guests and we could not recommend this band enough.

Southern Dandies

The band were fantastic, arrived on time, set up without a fuss, played our first dance song so well and kept the dance floor full all night. Would highly recommend them. Our experience of booking through hire a band was great. Phoned them up to enquire about price and dates, they got back to us within a day and booked everything for us then. They contacted us with details of when I was to contact the band about things and when I needed to pay the balance. They were fantastic and made the experience hastle free.

Southern Dandies

Very easy, very quick, amazing band!

Southern Dandies

Hireaband were great with our preparations.
The Southern Dandies..............In a word...........FANTASTIC.
They helped make our day perfect in every way. They interacted with the guests, did requests, conducted themselves beyond professional and of course most importantly they sounded amazing. Nothing we asked for was ever too much trouble for them. They dance floor was never empty. The cost to hire these guys is worth every single penny and a lot more.
If you are looking for a band, look no further than the Southern Dandies.

Southern Dandies

Hire a Band were great when our original band cancelled on us. They were very professional and put us at ease. The Southern Dandies were a professional and down to earth band. The music they played had everyone on the dance floor and made our wedding even more perfect. Thank you again.

Southern Dandies

Southern Dandies were fantastic and really made our evening reception wonderful, our dance floor was full all night and many of our guests have asked me where I found the band and commented on how amazing the music was. I would definitely recommend Southern Dandies in the future. Thanks.

The guys were superb! From the first dance to the final dance, the Dandies were excellent. Very friendly, very professional and very talented.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were great. All our guests commented on how good they were, we would definitely recommend them to others.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were an absolutely fantastic band and the best choice for our wedding. Everyone at our wedding was commenting how good they were. They helped make the night! All of them were really friendly and easy going even when asked for random songs etc. Without Hireaband we wouldn't have found them so thank you for that.

Southern Dandies

From start to finish my experience with Hire A Band has been absolutely first class. The communication and flexibility of all involved has been excellent. The band on the night 'The Southern Dandies' were amazing and extremely laid back in their approach to us borrowing their microphone etc. We couldn't have asked for any more and I would appreciate if you would pass our thanks on to the band.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were our ideal wedding band. They managed and picked the set in accordance with people's tastes and really read the atmosphere very well. They were extremely polite and accommodating to us and our guests, I enjoyed bantering with them on their break. As you can see I gave them five out of five for everything as I couldn't find one single fault with them, I can't thank Hireaband and the band enough for making our day so special. Warmest regards.

Southern Dandies

I would like to say a big thanks to all at hire a band and especially to the great band Southern Dandies that you helped us get. It was a great night and having a band as good as them really helped. Thanks again to you all for the help and I look forward to using the company again.

Southern Dandies

We recently booked Southern Dandies to play at our wedding at Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton. We couldn't be more pleased with how much they appealed to both us and our guests. Their fantastic set list had everyone up dancing all night. So many guests passed comment on how good they were. They are really nice guys, very approachable but more so, very talented musicians. We would definitely recommend them!

Southern Dandies

To Lisa and all the team at Hire a Band. Can I 1st start by saying I knew I was in safe hands after my 1st email with you. Honestly a great service. Thank you for putting Southern Dandies our way they were certainly that from start to finish. On the 14th at Comlongon Castle, the boys arrived and were just lovely, they went on to entertain the guests all night, they sounded great and they played a fab mix for everyone just brilliant. Once again thank you and I will definitely pass you on and hopefully use you again for, hey who knows if I win the lottery, every anniversary. Really happy.

Southern Dandies

The Southern Dandies were absolutely first class in both the run up to our wedding and during their performance. I contacted Dee beforehand to ask if they could accommodate a special request and they were delighted to do so. I asked them to perform a mini set as the Beatles and they were really enthusiastic about it. I got them costumes and they came out dressed up for the second half. It got a great reception from our guests. Their whole performance was excellent, and I found all members to be really great guys. I would recommend this band to anyone

Southern Dandies

Southern Dandies were phenomenal. All our guests commented on how talented they were. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. They played a variation of music and were happy to pay requests. I would definitely recommend them to others. Hire a Band was a really easy way to view a number of bands. The payment process and communication was great.
