“We’re so glad we went with the Jenni Gibb band, what an amazing night they threw us! Every one of our guests was up on the dance floor at one point, with many of them staying there all night! Jenni was always prompt to reply to my emails and ensured the band did all the requests I asked them to on the night. We had an amazing wedding day and the Jenni Gibb band was a huge part of making its so special, thank you so much for everything, from Mr & Mrs Wardell.”

“You guys were great, and we’ve had lots of awesome feedback from our guests about the ceilidh and about the covers. More importantly, we loved every minute! We won’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone who wasn’t there to hear for themselves!”

“Jenni and her band did an incredible job to make our wedding extra special. She managed to balance the mix of ceilidh and covers really well and got everyone up dancing. Our friends who had never done any ceilidh dancing before are now dead keen and are planning on becoming regulars at the local dances around the UK!

We would highly recommend them and would defiantly have them for our next party.”

“From booking to organising our first dance, right through to performing on the night, The Jenni Gibb band delivered on all fronts. They delivered a great mix of covers and ceilidh to suit all ages and kept the dance floor busy with a polished and enthusiastic performance. Would recommend this team to anyone looking for a complete service to put the cherry on top of any event.”

“Hi Jenni,

Thank you so much to you and the band for the music at our wedding. You were absolutely amazing and so many people were telling me how good you were throughout the night. I had been worried that the dancefloor would be quiet but I should not have worried at all as it was always so busy. It was amazing. We also really appreciate (mainly Bruce) you learning 22 by Taylor Swift for our second dance.

I really appreciated you taking the time to speak to me before the wedding to clarify what we wanted and you did not dissapoint. I will be recommending you to all of our friends and family. Loved every minute.

Thanks so much.

Love”

“We have absolutely no regrets about hiring The Jenni Gibb band for our wedding, they were amazing! From our first meeting with Jenni through to the wedding she was professional and responsive.
The band effortlessly blended in their ceilidh numbers with modern covers which had all our guests on the dancefloor from first dance to the final number, no one wanted the party to end.
When we asked Jenni to learn a new number for our first dance this was absolutely no problem, we were blown away by how great it turned out and it made the part of our wedding we were most nervous about a truly memorable moment.
Huge thanks to Jenni and the band!”

The Jenni Gibb band helped make an amazing day even better. They were consummate professionals on the day and in the run-up to the wedding itself. It is evident how experienced Jenni is in negotiating with couples: she is fully cognisant of the pressures and as such makes a huge effort to ensure that organising the band is as easy as possible. The band’s performance on the night illustrated a prodigious depth of talent throughout the ensemble. Perhaps what we appreciated most was how flexible and intuitive they were; they adapted their set seamlessly and fluently (between ceilidh and funk/soul) to respond to the desires of the guests. All in all, a fantastic choice of wedding band!

Mr Phil Lowe and Mrs Elena Bottaro, October 2012

Hi Jenni, just to say a massive thanks for such a fab night on the 1st. We absolutely loved having you guys to play, so professional and great fun, we have already given out your details to some of our guests! Thanks again.x Mr & Mrs Rennie aka Liggy Morgan @ Liggy’s Cake Company

Mr & Mrs Rennie August 2015

The Jenni Gibb band were a perfect combination of professional and performers! Everything was super smooth on the night, due to good dialogue with us on the run up to the wedding and answering all our questions – and this let them deliver their impressive performances without a hitch. The mix of songs performed was perfect – from old classics to super modern and fun hits meant that everyone was up dancing! I would highly recommend Jenni and her band (who are amazing musicians themselves!) to anyone!

Thanks Jenni again,

Kelly Brown, May 2015

Just to say a big thankyou to you and the Band for playing our wedding. You did an amazing job and lots of people have told me how much they enjoyed the music and the energy you brought to the evening. You even got my dad dancing, something I have never seen before!

Thanks again,

Euan and Kate McLaughlin, May 2015

Frankly we, and everyone there thought you were brilliant.The songs you played were totally in keeping with the vibe of the day and really set the tone for a fantastic evening. People were dancing and singing along all round the venue which was brilliant to see – even some who are known for not dancing at weddings were getting involved! Your ceilidh set was excellent and you were so helpful in accommodating our first dance choice – we were really really happy with how everything went.

Thanks and Regards,

Andrew & Catherine McDonald – March 2015

We are just back from honeymoon and our guests can’t stop raving about our fab wedding band – the Jenni Gibb Band. We were quite specific with our music tastes and selection and your band accommodated all our requests and nothing was too much trouble. The dance floor was occupied all night and the variety you played satisfied all tastes and ages. We are so pleased we got you to play at the happiest day of our lives. Thank you very much.

Mr & Mrs Greenwood – Nov 2014

The Jenni Gibb band played at our wedding reception and our guests danced all night. The majority of our guests were not Scottish and they particularly enjoyed the ceilidh part of it. There was never a problem in managing to do the dances as the caller explained each dance well. We had a great fun night! The band also arranged a DJ after they had finished. We gave them our choices in music and this was played as we had requested – a good finish to a great evening!

Mr & Mrs. McCauley – Sept 2014

I have always dreamed of having a live band at my wedding, it is the one part I was not willing to compromise on and so I researched different Scottish bands carefully before selecting the Jenni Gibb Band. And they did not disappoint: they absolutely blew me away. Multiple generations of family members and friends commented throughout the night about how amazing the band was and how much they added to the atmosphere of the day. But more than that, they were professionals, always replying promptly to emails, turning up on time, setting up discretely and waiting patiently for an over excited bride to be ready for the music to start. Thank you so so much, you truly made my day.

Lots of love and the very best wishes for the future,

Emily Bengston – Aug 2014

We would both just like to say thanks to Jenni and the rest of the band for the performance that you gave at our wedding. Every guest commented to us on just how good the band was and how they created a party atmosphere throughout the night. The ceilidh was the highlight of the night for us. The dance floor was packed when we did these dances and the band ensured we knew what we were doing before we started which was great!
Everything from the quality of the sound, to the vocals and the professionalism of all the band members were noted by all our guests. We will definitely be recommending them to my friends that are engaged to be married. Thanks once again.

Chris and Nicola Downie, 8th Feb 2014, Houston House.

After listening to over 30 bands easily our favourite was The Jenni Gibb Band. From the moment we started dealing with Jenni we knew we’d made the right choice. Flexible, helpful, inventive & blew everyone away. Best & fastest strip the willow I’ve ever experienced. Well done & thank you. It’s true what they say, a good band makes a good wedding & our wedding was awesome.

Ally & Romey Baldwin – 19th July 2014, Private House Stirlingshire.

We were delighted with the band, from start to finish- utterly professional when booking, very organised with play lists and special requests were not a problem. On the day of the wedding, they arrived and set up without really knowing they were there. The dance floor was full all night with amazing songs sung beautifully by Jenni. The ceilidh songs were fab, the caller kept everyone right and it was such a laugh! Could not fault the Jenni Gibb band, would strongly recommend them for weddings or special occasions. Thanks so much!!

Louise Findlay, Aug 2013

Jenni and the band played at our wedding in March, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with their performance.My guests couldn’t believe how many there were in the band!Jenni gauged the mood of the guests perfectly and sang songs that suited everyone.The “caller” was brilliant, and showed the patience of Job – getting our lot to pay attention was no mean feat.One of my aunts is from South Uist and commented on how good the band were, especially at the ceilidh music – high compliments indeed from a real teuchter! If you want a band for your wedding you can’t do better than the Jenni Gibb Band.

Julie & Chris Jackson – 29th March 2014, The Marriot Hotel.

 Thank you so very much Jenni – the band was absolutely excellent last night and the staff and pupils all had a wonderful time. Please can we book you now for next year?

Dianne Keohane, S6 Year Teacher, George Heriot’s School, June 2013

I am so thankful that we came across The Jenni Gibb Band during our frantic search for our wedding band! They were absolutely AMAZING and didn’t mind the drive up to the Highlands! Literally from the first dance everyone was on the floor, not just a few folk…..everyone! Their playlist was brilliant as was the Scottish Country dances. I have had so much great feedback from all my guests and I have already recommended Jenni and her Band to a few of my friends who have just got engaged. Highly Highly recommendable!! xx

Steph & Ali, May 2013

 We booked the Jenni Gibb band for our wedding and we can honestly say that we could not have hoped or expected them to provide us with anything better! The service and professionalism we received from when we first contacted them to ask about their availability, right up to the last dance of the wedding was great and very reassuring that we had made the right choice. The songs we requested were done so beautifully, the set they performed had the dance floor full all night and we have to mention the ceilidh was a highlight for many guests. Ever since the wedding we have heard from friends and loved ones and the reoccurring topic for discussion is how good the band were with some (Brian and myself included) saying the Jenni Gibb band were the best band they had seen at a wedding.. and after the amount of weddings that many of them have been to recently then this truly is a fantastic compliment. We are maybe a little bit biased, however we do feel we couldn’t have found a better band for our wedding. We would like to thank the wonderful, talented Jenni Gibb band and would recommend them wholeheartedly!

Jacqs & Brian Paton, June 2012

We were absolutely delighted with the Jenni Gibb Band. The band are excellent musicians and Jenni’s vocal is outstanding. They played superb music all evening which kept everyone dancing and a real party atmosphere throughout the reception.They really went the extra mile to accommodate the wishes of the bride and groom. I would recommend them to anyone who is planning a wedding reception.
Carol Langrish – Feb 2014, Houston House

 

A huge thank you for your part in our wedding reception, the band made the night! Our guests all commented on how good the band were and there was always people up dancing, in particular for the ceilidh dances, our favourite part! The selected music was appropriate to the crowd being played for and the ceilidh dances spread throughout the evening (it can be exhausting have too many close together!). We will be recommending The Jenni Gibb Band to anyone looking for a band for any occasion!

Claire and Keith Johnston – 26th April 2014, Peebles Hydro Hotel.

A fantastic band. Played songs that everyone wanted to dance to, from a 2 year old to my 70 year old Dad! A great mix of ceilidh and modern songs. Great musicians and vocals. Everyone was dancing like crazy all night! They even found a special ceilidh song that we requested. Would highly recommend.

Louise and Nico Grobler – 9th Aug 2014, Kellie Castle.

We booked The Jenni Gibb Band and were not disappointed. Jenni did not hesitate when I asked for some specific songs for our first dance and they even learned a Christmas classic because our wedding was the 20th of December. All of our guests were blown away with the quality of the band and the fiddle player made sure we had lots of high energy tunes to ‘jig’ to. They even battled through 4 inches of snow to get there. Thank you, the Jenni Gibb Band, you helped make our day unforgettable.

The band was absolutely fantastic. All our guests commented on how brilliant they were. They had everyone up dancing all night. I honestly couldn’t recommend them enough!

Sarah Douglas, Dryfesdale Country House Hotel, Lockerbie

The Jenni Gibb Band were excellent! They made our night! Everything we asked for was done!

Clair and David Owens, Seafield Community Centre

The band was fantastic- all the guest commented on how they were one of the best bands they had heard at a wedding!

Stephanie Carr and Allan Ford, The Brigadoon Hotel

We just wanted to drop you a letter to thank you for singing at our wedding at Glenskirlie Castle. We had such a fantastic time and we were thrilled at our choice of band. Ever since the wedding, everyone has been commenting on what a great night they had and how brilliant the band was. You really got everyone going on the night and the dance floor was never empty. Your set was absolutely perfect for the company at the reception and we particularly liked how you played a short fiddle tune to get everyone in the party mood before the first dance. We managed to have a quick chat at the end of the night with a few band members and we were thrilled to hear they equally had as good a time as the guests. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and colleagues and I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding reception so special. Best wishes for the future.

As the mother of the groom I would ask that you pass my sincere thanks to all members of The Jenni Gibb Band for an absolutely fabulous evening on the 6th September in the Holiday Inn, East Kilbride. The different ranges of music that they played made everyone want to get up and dance. That evening the guests were all complimenting us on our choice of band saying they were tremendous. The following day guests were phoning to say they enjoyed the day and that the band made the night. Their talent made our son’s wedding into a great occasion. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Thank you again for helping us to have such a memorable day.
