You need as much flexibility as possible from your wedding or function band. With such a range of ages to cater for, there's no point in hiring a band who are only good at one style of music. That's where The Shakers excel - you'll hear music from Glenn Miller right up to Pharrel Williams and everything in between.
The musicians in the band are of a very high standard. This is not a pub band that plays at weddings for a bit of extra cash. The Shakers were designed from the ground up to provide a 100% reliable and totally professional approach to performing and as such, you'll never see this band in a pub or club.
Here are some of the stand out reasons for hiring The Shakers
So what can you expect when you book The Shakers? This is a band that loves what they do. They'll turn up on time so you don't panic, set up their equipment quietly and efficiently and then perform a blistering set of dance floor fillers in their usual energetic and fun way. You and your guests will be talking about this band for months after your event.

Just to let you know the band were terrific on Saturday at Oxenfoord. Perfect balance of music for all tastes and the ceilidh music fairly got everybody moving.
Absolutely amazing service from enquiring to right through to the band on the night.
Great communication from hireaband office and from the band.
On the night the band were on top form- everyone was up on the dancefloor.
Thank you so very much.
The Shakers were AMAZING!!
After a long time listening to other options I knew I wanted this band. They covered our requests, which were varied!
They called the dances and walked our guests (including some American and Canadian visitors) through the ceilidh section.
The band were professional throughout and also a lot of fun!
With seven musicians in the band, as we added the ceilidh option and had wanted male and female vocalists, my music teacher friends were seriously impressed with their diversity and talent.
To top it all..... a saxophone led conga!
Totally the best money we spent on our wedding. My mum has already told some of her friends who have engaged sons and daughters that if they want the 'best night ever' .... That's a quote from our guests.... then try to get this band.
They made our night so much so we would love to do it all again!!
Thank you so much,
We hired The Shakers to play at our wedding and we were not disappointed. They did a lovely version of our first dance song, a great ceilidh set and then kept the dance floor full all evening with a well chosen mix of songs, including a couple of special requests. Our guests all commented on how great the band were. We would highly recommend them!
The band were great from start to finish and had the dance floor full for most of the evening. They had a great mix of music which catered for everyone. I would highly recommend the shakers to all and my guests were all very complimentary and loved the music. Thanks to all the band and we hope they enjoyed the evening too.
The Hireaband website was extremely beneficial in the process of choosing a band for our wedding. We selected The Shakers and were not disappointed. The band were absolutely fantastic. They were accommodating, friendly and sounded brilliant. They played a great selection of songs and the dance floor was always busy. We cannot praise them enough and would like to thank them for making our wedding day so memorable.
My husband and I hired The Shakers to play at our wedding reception on Saturday 10th December. Both ourselves and our guests hugely enjoyed their set and the dance floor was often packed during the night. We hired the 6 piece band option which includes a male and female singer, drummer, guitarist, keyboard player and saxophonist. It was a brilliant touch to have an additional vocalist and also a saxophonist. The band's manager (Jamie) was good at discussing with me which songs we wanted to be played on the night and also gave us helpful advice on floorfillers to select (which appeared to have the desired effect!). We will definitely be recommending this band to others. Thanks to Hireaband for helping to set all of this up.
The whole band were amazing and weeks after our wedding people are still talking about how great they were!! One of our guests requested a song they didn't know and they spent their break learning it for us!! They were so friendly and could not recommend them more!!
The Shakers were absolutely brilliant! Our crowd needed a little bit of encouragement to get dancing so the shakers decided to do a ceilidh which got everyone dancing and after that the dance floor was full! The saxophonist was particularly good, he led a conga line out into the venues garden whilst still playing. The band were all really friendly and professional. Highly recommended!
Just like to say that the band The shakers were amazing at our wedding. Not only did we love the band but everyone at the wedding couldn't praise the band enough.

I just had to contact you as everyone was SO impressed with " The Shakers" at our daughters wedding reception, we have had so many positive comment about the outstanding music and choice of songs, they really ticked all the boxes in more ways than you could ever imagine, the dance floor was NEVER empty all evening which is testament to them all, if you wish to give me as a recommendation to anyone feel free.
A number of our friends have had wedding bands in the past few years and from there feedback "The Shakers" by far have outshone them all. We had many comments that it was the best wedding they had been to with such a versatile upmarket band, couldn't fault anything!
Well done to them all and them all so much for putting the final touch onto a very special occasion.
Dear Hireaband, The Shakers was the perfect choice for a band at our 70th Birthday celebration, the music, singers and variety of tunes were excellent, they certainly contributed to it being a very successful party, Thank You.

Well what can I say? The Shakers made our wedding they kept the dance floor alive thank you so much. Real good choice of music thought out the evening.
The Shakers were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Firstly, whilst setting up, they couldn't have been more pleasant. Our dance floor was packed all night - and full of actual dancers, who are normally hard to please and very picky with their music choices!! No guests left early and at the end of the set they were all screaming for an encore. They made our evening fantastic.
Hi Lisa, The band was absolutely amazing at our wedding. They had everyone up dancing all night and people kept talking about how good they were.

Hi Heather It was a brilliant performance by the band, with a superb choice of music. Many of our guests commented on how good the band was & also enquired as to who they were & how we found them. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. Well done guys. Thanks again.
Dear Hireaband, I would like to thank the band The Shakers for performing so well at our wedding. They were lively, varied and very entertaining and had everyone up dancing to either ceilidh or pop music. They were also very professional in their presentation and appearance. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending The Shakers for any kind of function and especially for a wedding. Thank you so much for arranging this for us.
Hello Hireaband, Would HIGHLY recommend THE SHAKERS to anyone looking for an amazing sounding band. Everyone at the party mentioned just how great the band were and who were they. Great bunch of guys and girl .... Thanks for giving everyone a great sound!! The dance floor was never empty, my feet ache this morning!
I would just like to say what an excellent band The Shakers are. They played a wide and varied selection of music throughout the evening. They were courteous and polite when speaking with them. They kept the music flowing and didn't have large gaps between tunes/songs. Several of our guests also commented on what an excellent band they were. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend The Shakers to any friends or relatives looking to book a band whether for a wedding or other function. Thank you The Shakers.
The Shakers were absolutely fantastic. What a professional band and they sounded amazing. We had lots of comments from our guests especially regarding the saxophonist - he really made it!! Thanks again and we will be recommending to all our friends and family!I was very pleased with the service i received from Hireaband. I was also delighted with the band, The Shakers - they were excellent and really made the evening part of the wedding. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone, they were fantastic!!
We hired The Shakers for our wedding and they helped to make our day fantastic. My husband and I had spent a long time trying to choose between having a ceilidh or a cover band, so we were delighted when The Shakers offered to provide us with a live ceilidh for the first hour of the evening before moving on to covers. The ceilidh really got everyone in the party mood. All the dances were called which was perfect for some of our family from overseas. Moving on to the covers section of the evening, the music continued to be outstanding. The Shakers choice of songs got everyone up dancing and we had a great time with all of our friends and family. I thought the vocals were excellent. The Shakers were true professionals, creating the right atmosphere for a wedding reception, everything went without a hitch. Thanks again for making our day wonderful. When the last song finished I really didn't want it to end!
Can't fault Hireaband one bit. It was so easy booking the band for my wedding through you, I received the contract straightaway and it was a great weight off my mind knowing that the band were secured. It also was really easy to contact anyone at the office, as i needed duplicate copies of the contract and this wasn't a problem, it was also great being put in touch direct with the band as we met up with them a few weeks before to see them play. The Shakers were FANTASTIC, can't thank them enough for making the night such a success, the dance floor was packed all night and they agreed to play on for an extra 1/2 hour. Everyone was asking where we had found the band as they were so impressed. Thanks again and i will be recommending your services!
Great band, all the guests kept dancing to the very end - a good sign of a great band!
