    Absolutely amazing

    Schuggie and the band played for the evening reception of our wedding. They were absolutely amazing at getting everyone involved with the perfect mix of fun yet classy. They tailored the evening to our timings and preferences and kept us well informed in the run up to the day. We had so many compliments on the ceilidh and reports of people loving it. They’re a great group- so friendly and professional-Thank you for making our wedding reception so fun! Ben and Laura.
