We recently had Splendid Gentleman play for our Wedding and what a great choice it was.
The booking process was made easy, and Dee was an absolute pleasure to deal with. They accommodated our first dance requests… and filled me with confidence prior to the day.
On the evening they were prompt and discreet with their setup, and received compliments from the venue team, where they had not played before, about how good they were to deal with.
Most importantly for a band, they were absolutely amazing live, even better than their showreels! They hit just the right tone with our guests, dealt with requests suitably and kept the dancefloor bouncing all evening.
I have heard nothing but praise for them from the guests and would not hesitate to recommend them. Will be keeping an eye out for their gigs as we would love to listen to them all over again!
Thanks again,
Amy & Craig

My wife and I got married at Piperdam on the 09/11/18 these Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding. They were absolutely incredible, I’ve never seen a band manage to get everyone at the wedding up and dancing. The dance floor was never empty from start to finish. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about them. Highly recommend them!

Splendid Gentleman played at our wedding at Banchory Lodge (Aberdeen) on October 21st and did an AMAZING job!!! We hadn’t seen them live before but after reviewing their videos online we knew they would be great and they certainly didn’t disappoint. Great range of songs for all ages and the dance floor was hardly ever empty. Everyone commented on how good they were and the guys were all so lovely too! Would definitely recommend them to anyone and so glad we chose them for our wedding they made our night amazing!

Thanks again Karyn and Alan xx

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding at Pollokshields Burgh Hall on September 1st 2018. They were the very first vendor we booked after the venue as music is such a big priority to the both of us! Communication with Dee was great and we always had swift replies with nothing being too much trouble and noting our song requests.

On the day we both can’t thank the guys enough. You really made our night, catering to our rockier tastes, some celidiah and also some more wedding traditional songs. The dance floor was busy all night. The Offspring (twice), Angus Young guitar moves during AC/DC and Purple Rain are the favourites! The guys really know how to work with the crowd they’ve got on the night. We’ve had nothing but great feedback from our guests. Really friendly guys who were happy to chat away with us and the guests.

Thanks guys you made our night and hopefully catch you at one of your gigs some time. Paula & Andy. 🙂

Dee, Craig and Scott were absolutely fantastic!

Quick to respond when we were planning, super flexible with our requests and really took the time to understand of what kind of music we wanted to hear.

On the day, they read the small crowd brilliantly and kept the classics coming and the dancers dancing.

Couldn’t have been happier with our choice!

Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding at Crear in 10/03/2018. Having been given the responsibility of choosing the band the pressure was on.
I stumbled across Splendid Gentlemen and after hearing them at gig I booked them straight away knowing that a delay could mean us missing out.
In the lead up to the wedding I was in contact with Dee on a couple of occasions, confirming he knew the venue and 1st dance song, his replies were always prompt and nothing seemed like too much trouble.
On the night the guys turned up very prompt, they had a brief chat with my wife and I and then got to work.
After our first dance they just played one cracking song after another, every cover was absolutely spot on.
The guys play music with passion and are complete opposites to many a wedding bands I have seen who are too busy giving it big fake smiles and cheesy dance moves.
Our guests all loved the band and the staff at the venue were also very complimentary.

If you are thinking of booking Splendid Gentlemen then do it. You will have no regrets and can thank me later.

Fantastic musicians and great guys.

Thank you very much.

Allan and Lisa Davidson.

I got married on 25th november 2017 at the Torrance hotel east kilbride. Me and my wife chose splendid gentlemen as we had been recommended by a friend.

The band were very professional from the moment of enquiry to the actual event. Communication with Dee was brilliant, any questions we had were answered quickly.

We have had nothing but compliments from those who attended our wedding. Everyone was impressed by the variety of songs played. Vocally the band is pretty spot on and the dance floor was not empty the whole night. The band’s repertoire is very impressive and that shows how serious splendid gentlemen take there music. I honestly cannot think of anything I would have changed from the whole experience.
Keep up the good work guys and i will be recommending you to everyone.

Thanks again for topping off a wonderful day.

Splendid Gentlemen were amazing at our wedding. We wanted a night where we could rock out and have a night that was us. For our first dance, we chose I only wanna be with you, the guys learnt the song and they made it their own, it sounded spectacular and I can’t recommend them enough to people.

I would just like to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Splendid Gentlemen were absolutely outstanding! 

The dance floor was never empty – literally every song there were loads of folk up dancing! I think every one of the 200 guests raved about you and so many said you were the best band they had ever seen and we agree! 

We cannot thank you enough for creating an amazing atmosphere and finishing off our wedding day in style. Everyone loved that you took requests and you gauged the music type that everyone loved to perfection! What a brilliant night! 

Thank you again to the three of you! You are amazing singers and phenomenal musicians! We have brilliant memories of our reception to cherish forever. Anyone who manages to secure you for their special date is so lucky!

Thanks again,

Nikki and David x

How happy were we to find Splendid Gentlemen?!

Their sound is exactly what we were looking for – they don’t sound like a cheesy wedding band! They are a proper band!

Dee was amazing since our very first enquiry, through booking and even learning a few songs not on their repertoire which we are so thankful for, you made our night! 🙂

Dee was so laid back even though I was a total control freak through planning.

Dee and the guys done a truly amazing job on our first dance which could not have been an easy job for them as , at our request they made it less ‘mushy’ and rocked it up a bit! I almost didn’t think this would have been possible for a song which was recorded with an orchestra to sound more indie/rock but Splendid Gentlemen far exceeded our expectations!

All of our guests commented on how great the band were and I think they’ve picked up a fan base, I imagine a few of our wedding guests will be at your next gig in Maggie Mays!

We honestly can’t thank you all enough for all your hard work and making our wedding one to remember for everyone involved!

The band played at our wedding reception on 12th May at Inverkip Marina and were excellent. The dance floor wasn’t empty all night and they were very accommodating with our guests requests on the night. Genuinely nice guys too….wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for your wedding.

The Splendid Gentlemen played a great set at our wedding on the 12th of April. They arrived on time, with a quick and professional set-up. The band is genuinely interested in providing entertainment and this came across in abundance, they’re fantastic musicians and lovely guys, too, very easy to keep in touch with. They played the songs we requested with aplomb with lots of people commenting on how good they were (dance floor was never empty!). We were really touched that they made the effort to say goodbye before their drive home and also saying they had enjoyed themselves. Dudes!
