These are just some of them... there has been a lot over the years!
"The Rear View Band were incredible at our recent wedding, they absolutely made our day. Not only did they sound great but they were amazing in the lead up especially with all the uncertainty around Covid. There were so friendly and responsive when emailing. Thank you so much guys!"

"Rear View Wedding Band we're an outstanding contribution to our wedding. Great musicians with great presence which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Cannot recommend enough."
Keith MacLeod - Google Review 2021
"We cannot say thank you enough for all you've done for our wedding. We understand that we put you through a lot with our First Dance song and with our special request of Bohemian Rhapsody - which by the way you totally rocked!
We had such a blast, you made the night perfect and we still get so many compliments about you guys (and girl!) all the time. The photos we got from our guests dancing in the evening are just absolutely brilliant and clearly shows that everyone was having a good time. And best of all: you even got my mum dancing on the dance floor! I never thought that would happen!!!
Thank you for everything!
Aurélie and James"

"I booked these guys for my GF's party In Kirkcaldy, they were brilliant, a good mixture of songs for everyone, the Ceilidh went down a treat and they even let me sing a song! top people and first class musicians, highly recommended!"
James Woodward - Google Review 2019
"If your after a wedding band, who do ceilidh and covers, look no further than Rear View. Jamie and the guys recently played at our wedding and were awesome. They are a really tight, energetic and talented group of musicians with brilliant vocals who have a great set list and tailor the night for you. The whole experience from booking them to tailoring the songs to playing on the night was seamless, friendly and really professional. Highly recommended"

"Rear View performed for us last weekend for the second year running at our summer party. They were fantastic from start to finish. Jamie was quick and super helpful responding to our initial enquiries, and their offer to learn as many as 5 songs for you specifically for the event is particularly good! On the actual night they arrived in plenty of time, were extremely low maintenance and then played an awesome set which had everyone dancing. The following day everyone was talking about how great the band was! I'd highly recommend these guys to anyone."
Will Jackson - Google Review 2018
"We had Rear View play our wedding on July 14 2018 and they were absolutely fantastic! They were wonderful to work with throughout the planning stage, learned and played our request for our first dance perfectly (we were seriously impressed - we thought it was quite a tough song but the singer hit every note!!), patiently taught our Canadian guests some Ceilidh dances before switching into some more rock 'n' roll covers and a DJ set. A well balanced mix of everything and our dance floor was full all night :) Thank you guys!!"

"Rear View are a great group. Very entertaining with a wide range of songs to suit. Both covers and ceilidh music were spot on"

"What a great Wedding Band!, Rear View Band were absolutely incredible at our wedding at Errol Park. An amazing set list with great songs which we could choose from. Had all the guests up and dancing all night......Highly recommended!"
Bobbie Walker - Google Review 2017
"Don't know where to begin with how amazing the Rear View Band were on my big day. Having witnessed them play at weddings before and taking the key members of our wedding party to a night where the band played, we knew for sure they would definitely make the wedding reception unforgettable.
On top of their amazing performance on the night itself, the band were more than accommodating with some unique requests. The father & daughter dance was not only a song that the band do not have in their usual repertoire, but with an added twist for the last minute that the band had absolutely no issues with taking on, and the added bonus was the extra mile they took in adding their own accessories when playing it. I also performed on the wedding night itself as a surprise for my wife, but didn't finalise my decision until the night before, and all it took was a quick call to Jamie and he sorted everything I needed and made sure it all went exactly as planned.
The dance floor was packed from the moment the band played right until the very end of the night, and I cannot thank the band enough for their performance, help and keeping everyone entertained.
Would highly recommend to anybody looking for a band to suit any type of function as their professionalism and performance stood out far more than any other band we considered."
Ross Higgins - Google Review 2017
"We hired this band for our wedding and they were amazing from start to finish. We were able to personalise the whole performance, selecting songs we wanted/ didn't want from the song list, adding in a couple ceilidh dances and a dj set for the last hour. It helped to make our wedding feel unique. Everyone had a great time and I would recommend this band to anyone"
Ryan Taylor - Google Review 2017
"WOW they are the most fantastic band. So accomplished, accommodating and great fun. They let people sing with them as a Bandaoke and truly give you such a memorable night. They are really competitively priced so book them and you won't be disappointed. All my guests thought they were terrific and they made the night go with a real swing. Fabulous songs, great musicians and wonderful vocalists. What a night. Thank you so much"
Cathy Bell - Google Review 2016
"Brilliant band, we booked for our wedding. They were more than happy to learn our first dance and were really accommodating to every request. Also made sure we were in the room for the main song we didn't want to miss. Really versatile between a huge range of music and they had everybody up through the ceilidh dances which were scattered through the evening. Really can't fault anything at all, really happy and got endless comments from guests on how much they enjoyed the music"
Maggie Park - Google Review 2016
"We booked Rear View for our wedding reception on the strength of the recordings on their website. They didn't disappoint providing a magical night of ceilidh dancing and soul music. They dedicated themselves to making sure we had an amazing night. Can't recommend enough"
Tom Clegg - Google Review 2016
"We had the pleasure of having Rear View play at our wedding. From the first dance to "Nothing Else Matters" to their final song, they played an amazing mix of rock, metal, and the occasional ceilidh dance. We could tell that they enjoyed themselves too. They put in so much effort and energy, and delved into their "normally forbidden at weddings" list. Plus they allowed my wife to take to the stage and make her singing debut.
Fantastic band, fantastic people"
Phil Edwards - 2015 Google Review
"Rear View Band played at our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant! Everyone was on the dance floor from start to finish and all our guests have been commenting on what a great band they were. Jamie was great to deal with in the run up to the wedding and was really friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend them!"
Joanne and Andy - Google Review 2015
Rear View recently performed at our wedding and they were amazing, the set list had the dance floor full all night. I would like to say a special thanks to the band for learning our first dance song, they done a great job. I would highly recommend.
Clare Carr - Google Review 2015
"Rear View played at our wedding and they were amazing! They are all really friendly and very efficient setting up. We loved the variety of music and the fact we could have ceilidh songs and normal songs and a dj section. Loads of our guests asked for the bands details after the wedding too.
In the lead up to the wedding the band were very helpful and we could email them with loads of questions and they were very quick to reply with an answer. It was great that we could choose the songs we wanted played and they learned our first dance song rather than us having to use a cd.
We had an amazing day and would definitely recommend Rear View Band to anyone else looking for a great band to top your special event!! :)
Thanks very much!! "
Amy Kirkwood - Google Review 2015

"I booked Rear View Music for my wedding last year and genuinely could not speak highly enough of their professionalism and performance on the night and the lead up to the event. For someone who truly appreciates music, booking a band to play your wedding can be a harrowing experience; trawling through an endless number of band profiles, finding more or less the same generic set list, I was close to tears. Devoid of optimism, I asked a friend who regularly gigs in Edinburgh if he happened to know of any good wedding bands that wouldn't cost the earth. It turned out he did and he put me in touch with Jamie at Rear View Music.
I was organising my wedding from Australia, yet despite the obvious time zone issues and the very short notice Jamie was near instantaneous in replying to emails and could not have been more accommodating and friendly. We discussed the musical tastes and he even specifically tailored a set to meet our requirements. Any chance of a short Ceilidh set? Not a problem. Everything had gone too smoothly - I was starting to get a bit apprehensive - the price that he offered for a tailored set for four hours, including a ceilidh, was a fraction of the price of those I had previously been quoted by other bands offering a shorter set with no ceilidh. It was too late to have doubts by this time so I just had to cross my fingers.
I had no reason to worry. On the day the band turned up long before their start time to set up and sound check. Make no mistake, this is no part time pub band making a bit of extra cash on the side, these are professional musicians who are dedicated to their craft. From the first song they had everybody up on their feet and by the last there was all sorts of ridiculous 'dancing' happening. They had even prepared a few surprise numbers to play on the night, a great touch. I cannot thank Jamie and the band enough for their huge part in our wedding day as special as it was. When our friends and family talk about our wedding the band always get a mention. I usually would not use as many superlatives in an entire year as I have in the above three paragraphs, however Rear View Music earned every one of them. Book them and find out for yourself."
Paul Mackie - Derby, Western Australia
"Just wanted to say thanks again for performing at our wedding on 5 October. The band were absolutely fantastic and were thoroughly enjoyed the whole night. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending you to friends who are looking for a band. If you could kindly pass our thanks on to the band that would be great."
Mrs J Williamson, Aberdeen
"Well.... Went to see the function band a few months ago not having much thoughts about it... Couldn't really afford a band for our wedding but was giving it a shot.... And what can I say? wow I was blown away completely. Fantastic and from that moment I was intent on finding a way to afford rearview for our wedding this past September..... They didn't let us down, everyone loved them and they made our special day complete. Not only with there singing but me constantly changing songs haha! everything was class one standard from beginning to end :) thanks so much guys you will always make us smile with the memories of our day xxx."
