Wedding Reception, Bunchrew House Hotel, Inverness.

We just wanted to pass on our thanks and gratitude to the band for helping to make our wedding day so special. You guys were great on the night and everyone commented on how much fun they had on the night, especially during the ceilidh music (you guys were extremely patient..!!).

And our first song could not have gone any better, we both really appreciated that you took the time to learn the song and we thought that overall performance was excellent on the night!

Thanks again!

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for playing at our wedding. We enjoyed every minute of it and our guests couldn't stop saying how great the band was. It was great to see the dance floor so busy for every song! Thank you again for playing and for all the emails! We can't believe it is all over.

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Kind regards

Wedding Reception at Holiday Inn, Westhills.

"We had an amazing night and loved watching how much everyone else at our reception loved dancing the night away, even four months on everyone is still speaking about the night and how much they enjoyed it.

We knew as soon as we came along to a viewing that you were the band for us and couldnít wait to actually have you playing at our wedding reception. Your help in the lead up certainly helped to keep me calm and under control which is much appreciated. On the night we had a few people there that didnít really know very many of the Scottish dances but they were soon put at ease when they saw you talking people through the dances and then we couldnít get them off of the dance floor, they just loved every minute. My brother and his fiancťe had come over from New Zealand for the big day and my brother was in his element all night dancing away to the Scottish music, never off the dance floor and said thatís what a proper ceilidh band sounds like.

The range of music you played is amazing and caters for every need and at some point every single person at the function was up dancing the night away, there was also a few bruises on arms from people getting too carried away with the music and swinging each other round but all said the next day they were worth it as an amazing night was had by them all and they keep asking when we are having the next party. We were especially chuffed because you allowed a close friend of ours to sing our first dance after you had played the grand march before playing again, this made it all the more magical for my husband and I. Also the wide range of music especially touched me as my new step son came up to you and requested a Take That/Robbie song and you played one of my favourite Robbie songs which I danced with Jordan and it was one of those moments I will never forget and means a lot to us both.

A huge thank you to everyone in the band, we certainly wouldnít have had the wedding day we dreamed of if it hadnít been for your band, you certainly made the night amazing for us and we will never forget it and have numerous videos people took during the night which just shows how good a time everyone was having.

We will certainly keep you in mind for any events we have coming up and will recommend you to everyone we know who should need a band for a special occasion.

Thank you so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so much, you were perfect."

A very happy Mr and Mrs Strachan ( Peter and Pauline) x x x x

"Just a wee note to say thank you very much for entertaining us on Saturday night, you were all just what we were looking for from a band and I have lost count of the compliments we have had about Whigmaleerie!
Hope you all got home safely and wish you all a great xmas and happy new year."
Thanks again

Wedding Reception at Elphinstone Hall, Aberdeen.

"Been meaning to email you last week and thank you but there seems to be a post wedding rush on as well as the pre wedding rush. 

We had a great wedding night and everyone we have spoke said the band were brilliant and we couldn't agree more. Thanks again for making our dance."

Wedding  Reception at Crathes Castle, Banchory, Aberdeenshire.

"I just wanted to say thanks so much for playing such a great set and really entertaining our guests at our wedding. Please pass my thanks on to everyone else in the band too. You were really, really good (and remarkably patient with the many English people there who had never been to a ceilidh before!)
I also really appreciate you letting my band play your instruments - it was a real moment for me to be able to play at my own wedding (although the instruments didn't sound half as good in our hands as they did in yours!)
Janine and I had a fantastic wedding day and are still smiling about it now - so thanks again for the part you played in making it all go so well. We will definitely recommend you to our friends!"

"The meal provided at the ball was absolutely first class as always - what a glorious spread and all for £18.50. This was inclusive of musical entertainment provided by a 5 piece band called Whigmaleerie. What a night we had - made even better by the amount of English visitors, resident for the local ski-ing, all of whom on more than one occasion told our party that they had never enjoyed themselves so much for years. Well done Whigmaleerie and Management take note - they are definitely worth a regular spot!"

Wedding Reception, Wester Balmungie, Black Isle.

Hi John,

Just a quick email to say thanks very much for last Saturday! You and the rest of the band were fantastic, we'd certainly recommend you and we've had many people come up and say how much they enjoyed the band. It was lovely to see so many people (who I didn't expect to be up on the floor) dancing their socks off! I hope you got enough to eat and also that you got stuck into the stovies, I feel bad for not making sure of this!?!
Please say thanks to everyone else for us too,
Lorna and Tim

Ean Jones, XS Promotions Aberdeen, says the following about WHIGMALEERIE:

"They are a superb five-piece band with musicians who have performed prolifically on the Scottish popular music and ceilidh scene for many years, adapting their material for all occasions and age groups. The band line-up consists of fiddle, keyboards, drums, guitars and vocals. Their repertoire covers a wealth of material. Their popular sets include plenty of popular songs spanning from the mid 50ís through the 60's and 70's, and selected top hits from the 80's, 90's and this century; their versatility allows them to also feature country, folk, country rock from their large selection of songs and music. On the ceilidh front, they play all the popular Scottish country dances and they also call the dances to help those in the audience not familiar with the steps. In addition, they can also play a selection of traditional music from Ireland and Scotland which is always well received. WHIGMALEERIE have performed at literally hundreds of festivals, marquees, events, weddings, private parties and ceilidhs throughout Scotland, and their lively, energetic music coupled with their on and off-stage humour make this band popular wherever they perform."
