The Cruin, 10-Aug-19

Bridges were fantastic at our wedding, for both ceilidh dances and pop covers - across a variety of genres. They are musically very talented and accomplished and brought a great energy to the night. They learned a new song for our first dance and performed it beautifully! Throughout the night people kept coming up to us to say how amazing the band were which really made the night. Would heartily recommend.

Barn at Harburn, 27-Jul-19

Bridges played our wedding at the Barn at Harburn last weekend, and we have been getting non-stop comments from guests about how much they loved their performance! Most of our guests were American (with two left feet!) and had no idea how to ceilidh, but Bridges was super-patient with us. The musicians even came down and helped us out a few times with the footwork during the evening. They did a fantastic job of judging when everyone needed a break from dancing (like after the ceilidh) and took time off then. They played an amazing repertoire of covers from the '70s-present that got all of our family members out of their seats. Even my dad was up on the dance floor for a few numbers, which is a straight-up miracle! Cannot recommend these guys highly enough. They will make your function one for the memory books. (I also posted this feedback on Bridges' FB page. They were amazing!)

Bridges played at our wedding last weekend, They sounded fantastic, many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed them. They sounded professional and fun at the same time. They played a great mix of Ceilidh and covers throughout the night. The band were very friendly and came and chatted to us before the night and afterwards. I would highly recommend them.

Dundas Castle - inside the castle - not the pavill, 10-Mar-19

Bridges were absolutely great... everyone loved them. We live in England but got married in Scotland, and so booked them having only seen the promo videos on the website - but we were not disappointed, Gus was super friendly over email on the run up to the wedding and fabulous on the night, Charlie was wonderful on the fiddle and got everyone dancing a ceilidh... and the lead guitarist wowed us with some insane solos. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. THANK YOU!!!

10/10 Absolutely fantastic. Could not recommend Bridges enough. The dance floor was full all night and we didn’t want it to end. They played a great mix of music which appealed to all ages and the ceilidh went down well with all our guests.

The Caves, 24-Nov-18

Bridges were INSANELY good! Every one of our guests commented on what a great band they were. We even had some relatives who didn't want to dance, and they were happy just to sit and watch the band as they were so entertaining. Would highly recommend to anyone!

The Duke of Gordon Hotel,, 10-Nov-18

The band were excellent. They learnt and played two songs of our request for the first two dances which were great! They then did a ceilidh set and got everyone up dancing giving instructions where needed but also realising that most knew what to do. The rest of the night they played a mixture of songs from different eras. An excellent band with great musical talent! Thank you!

Dundas Castle, 28-Jul-18

Bridges were simply fantastic! We had an amazing wedding in a fabulous location, this was rounded out by Bridges who were wonderful. They played a really nice set of Ceilidh which was enjoyed by everyone and then transitioned smoothly into playing an awesome set of contemporary numbers. We were hugely impressed by Gus, Manuel and the whole band - they were the icing on the cake - amazing! Rob & Jenny

Glenericht House., 21-Jul-18

We hired Bridges for our wedding asking them to perform some celidh dances, our first dance which they learned for us, and the their standard set list. From start to finish Bridges were absolutely fantastic. They were friendly, very personable and are incredibly talented. The dance floor was filled all night and we have received many compliments from guests about them. We would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for a great party.

Lodge on Loch Lomond , 28-May-18

Bridges were awesome! I did worry two weeks before the wedding, as we hadn’t had much contact from the band but Gus put my mind at ease! Bridges played the most beautiful version of our first dance ‘The book of love’ and got our guests on the floor for the ceilidh. I don’t think I left the dance floor all night! Thank you for a memorable night! Mr & Mrs Doherty

Tontine Hotel, 28-Apr-18

Myself and my new husband Martin booked Bridges before seeing them perform live in order to secure the booking after reviewing the videos of all the function bands listed on Music for Scotland's website. We were very excited to attend the Music for Scotland showcase, at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh in order to enjoy all the function bands' performances but specifically Bridges. Myself and Martin were blown away by their performance and how eclectic their song choices were and we have to add, the best live performance of 'Everywhere' by Fleetwood Mac we have ever seen and heard! On Saturday 28th April we had our wedding day, and prior to the day, Bridges had been in touch by email to check if we had any specific song choices in addition to our first dance which was kind. Bridges arrived at our venue - The Tontine Hotel in Greenock - and set up, communicating with the hotel staff and then beginning their set with the first dance Stand by Me - but not the Ben E King version - Bridges kindly performed the Florence and the Machine version at our request. The entire set was so varied and fun, also providing a Ceilidh for an hour, which was a great surprise for our guests. My reason for booking Bridges was that myself and Martin wanted a band which you would want to see perform at a gig. Who play music for the love of music which brings people together and have a great time. I can pass on that Bridges exceeded our expectations and all of our family and friends who attended our wedding day cannot stop talking about Bridges and what an amazing evening they all had.
