One of Scotland’s best-loved ceilidh bands. We’re equally happy playing for complete novices, folk who remember a handful of dances from school, or ceilidh fanatics: what’s important is that you and your guests have great fun dancing to our swinging, toe-tapping tunes.

When the equation between music, players, dancers and caller is right, a magical camaraderie fills the room and your evening takes off in a way you’ll never forget. That’s what we’re after every time!

A fantastic ceilidh band who had all our guests up and dancing, despite not knowing the steps. Energetic, talented and fun, I can’t recommend them highly enough!

A Scottish lass, married her Viking and a proper shindig was had. With guests from Iceland to India, the Portobello Ceilidh Band had it covered. With a caller who happily helped and laughed as we tangled in knots, everyone was up and dancing the night away. A live band with caller was exactly what we wanted, and Laurie and his band were fabulous – I think they enjoyed themselves too. Now happily married, we will be using the Portobello Ceilidh Band for future family events, and highly recommend them to you.

We could not recommend the Portobello Ceilidh Band more highly. We booked Laurie and the band for our wedding in Edinburgh in November and had an amazing time with them. They were really flexible with the dances we were keen to do and were perfect for the seasoned pros in the group – as well as the complete beginners. Really flexible as well with our timings on the day as everything ran later than planned – we very much appreciated the band giving us the full session we’d booked. Thanks!

A brilliant band, that helped to make our ceilidh perfect!
Our guests, both Scottish and American, danced the whole evening, even though many had to learn the steps for the first time! Both the caller and the band were perfect.

We had the pleasure of having Portobello Ceilidh Band playing at our wedding reception at The George Hotel in Edinburgh. My wife and I were delighted with their musical excellence and professionalism. The set which they played got hordes up on the dance floor bouncing with enjoyment, and it all added to ourselves and our numerous guests having a great night. I’d highly recommend them for your wedding!

They arrived early, were really friendly and adapted to the wedding schedule. The music was excellent and the calling pitched at the right level (majority English guests). With the bride being Chinese even our Chinese guests who knew very little English had a ball getting involved. Many of our guests ranted about how much they enjoyed the wedding and said the ceilidh was the high point. We would have no worries at all recommending them for any function.
A truly 5* excellent band.
