Jiggered Ceilidh Band were privileged to play at Nadia and Andy's wedding at Lochgreen House Hotel (Troon) last night. Nadia is a a good freind of Chris', having worked together for a few years. The wedding was lovely and the evening culminated in a ceilidh, provided by the busiest band in Scotland over the next two days (we've got TWO more ceilidhs for Hogmanay...watch this space).
Nadia and Andy had requested Paolo Nutini's "Candy" for their first dance and we did this for them- it was such a hit with the couple that we re-played it at the end of the night. It was a fun night for Jiggered- the crowd were lively and enthusiastic and it's always specal to play for someone you know. Andy and Nadia were delighted with the ceilidh- Andy commented that it "made the night", and Nadia said it was "just perfect". Mission accomplished!

It was off to the Spittal of Glenshee for Jiggered Ceilidh Band. The weather forecast was pretty grim and the travel conditions weren't ideal but we made it all the way up to the hotel. It was only in the car park that we had a minor mishap- Ewan pranged into the back of my car. D'oh!
The hotel looked after us really well- we enjoyed a lovely complementary meal and the ceilidhers were real keen. It was a great night.

The weather's been nasty with loads of snow and ice on the roads but Jiggered Ceilidh Band managed the 3 hour trip up to Crear last night for Malcolm and Alana's wedding. We had to stop a few times on the way for stray deer on the roads but the trip was a safe one! Unfortunately the weather had decimated the guest list for the wedding- just 28 or so made it...this was certainly one of the most intimate gigs we've ever done.
We had a great time and were well looked after by our clients and the Crear staff.
