We play a mix of genres to get your guests on the floor. Our standard set times are two 90 minute sets. Our line-up for this is female and male vocals, electric guitar, keyboard, bass and drums.
Our most popular option. Add fiddle and acoustic guitar for a mix of ceilidh and covers. We can also offer Bon:Stovi Ceilidh Band to play an entirely ceilidh set full of all the classics and lots of fun modern set dances, followed by covers provided by Edinburgh Sounds.
We can provide music as your guests arrive and for your ceremony. This can be anything you could possibly want with Nanoband. This is usually a duo or trio. We can also provide background music for your drinks reception. We can offer a discount if you book your whole day of music through us.
If you'd like to go all out, you can have 2 female vocalists, saxophone, a brass section... whatever you like! Some couples request a recording of our version of their first dance recorded in a studio to keep as a momento.

You really understood the crowd and it was great to see our friends and family having so much fun. We had family from Belguim, Germany, Poland and friends from all over- even as far as America. So it was great to show them how the Scots party!! We have received lots of positive comments about how good the music was. [...]the band got the vibe of the crowd just perfectly. Thank you!!!

Thank you so much for the band and music last night it was top drawer. Exactly what we wanted. The guys were so professional and Chris and Angus were brilliant to liaise with. The first dance with [our friend] Andy was awesome and a great personal touch. So many compliments on song choice and Angus' range was outstanding. I trust the guys had a good time too. Thank you so much. Very happy customers!

Just wanted to say an enormous thank you to you all for playing at our wedding on Saturday. You were absolutely fantastic - the songs you kindly learned for us were so much better than we ever dreamed they could be. You were friendly, professional and really fantastic at such a wide range of stuff! Thank you for helping make our wedding day a dream come true!

Wedding, October 2016
We heard many comments that evening (and on the dancefloor!), and the days following, about what a fantastic live band they were - and a few people said it was the best wedding band they'd ever heard. The covers were so well-crafted that guests said they forgot the band wasn't the original performers of these songs! The ceilidh dancing went down a treat too.
