This is our story
We are a 6 piece rock wedding band based in Scotland. We have both male and female lead vocalists, a powerful rhythm section and live fiddle player for ceilidh!
Unlike most wedding bands, we take a far more rock n roll attitude towards what we do. And this passion and energy shines through in our powerful performances that leaves crowds dazzled. We can't tell you how many times we have been told we are unlike any other band on the scene and one of the best in the business.
The Rear View Band was set up in response to the need to be better, more exciting and more professional than what was on offer! The traditional wedding band was simply boring, tired and over exposed! We wanted to feel the energy and excitement of seeing your favourite band right in front of you... but at your wedding!
To achieve this the band had to be different, unique, offer something more than just your average wedding band! Having spent so much time on the road, it became clear that crowds were much more turned on by music that many other bands would never go near. Playing music that is over 50 years old doesn’t inspire today's brides and grooms… nor their guests either.
By focusing not only on the quality of the music we provide but also the performance of the music itself; Band leader , Jamie Turnbull, would now ensure he had the perfectcomplement of professional, working musicians to make this happen. It was extremely important that each player in the REAR VIEW band was at the top of their game; skilled, talented, professional and above all - passionate about music and performance.
In 2020, forced into limbo by the pandemic for 18th months, the band took stock of where they were at and started to look closely at the history of the band and where their success lay. It was more than obvious that the more ‘rock’ tunes went down way better the ‘old classics’ so the band made a bold decision to start filtering them out in favour of a more alternative set. This made an enormous difference to the live shows and kicked each and every one into overdrive. So they decided to stick with it and have never looked back.
The result was a dynamic and evolving set comprised entirely of genuine floor fillers, tried and tested to ensure that everyone had an amazing experience!
Having racked up hundreds of positive reviews and testimonials one thing always reoccurs:
