Furryboots are a 4 piece, totally live band. We use 2 x electric guitars, bass guitar, electric double bass, live drums, harmonica and traditional accordion throughout our set.
Our aim is to provide the perfect 'Scottish' wedding reception entertainment where there's a great mix of covers music from 50's rock and roll right through to the modern charts. Our traditional Scottish set lasts around an hour and is led by the accordion however we can lengthen or shorten this to suit. Rather than have a DJ and a great ceilidh band or a great covers band and a DJ we provide the best of both. One of our guitarists is an excellent accordion player so our Ceilidh set is truly traditional (no keyboards used)
Typically a Wedding band would play for 4 hours from say 8pm to Midnight with a short break around the time of the
evening buffet. We provide a suitably sized PA system for your venue and amount of guests to ensure that the band can be heard clearly without being too loud and can also provide stage lighting that can be colour coordinated with the theme of your wedding. We also provide suitable recorded music that will be played during the break.
We also offer to learn a first dance for you if it's not already included in our set list. Some bands go for the easy option and play a CD for this but we'll take the time to rehearse it and play it live so long as it's within the possibilities of our instruments and also with 6 weeks notice.
We're flexible in all of the above, once booked our priority is to make sure you have a great evening reception and that we don't get in your way
