Hope you all had a fab Christmas time!
Jiggered love Norton House Hotel- it's a superb wedding venue and at this time of the year the Garden Suite there looks absolutely stunning. It's hard to beat.
Ewan's friends Warren and Erica were married there and we were drafted in to perform the ceilidh honours! The evening reception was packed with entertainment- the bride and groom's friend Craig kicked the evening off performing Michael Buble's Everything for their first dance, we gave an action packed ceilidh set before their DJ pal fired out the tunes until midnight. Fish and chips for the buffet and sparklers kept all guests smiling! This was a really nice wedding.
Next up: Hogmanay!

It's the first time we've played at Greenfaulds High School, Cumbernauld, but hopefully not the last if this event was anything to go by! A huge crowd of senior pupils arrived in their party gear ready to show off the moves they've been learning in PE! And the night was buzzing from start to finish. The students were enthusiastic, well-behaved and cheered like crazy at the end of the night. It was the perfect pre-Christmas ceilidh for us! We'll hopefully be back for more in the future when Greenfaulds move to their new school!
Our last gig before Christmas meant the obligatory exchange of Secret Santa presents. I think everyone went home happy this year!! It was a year to the day since Emma had her pacemaker "installed" and she's still loving life in the fast lane with Jiggered as we look to another busy year in 2016!
Merry ChrisSmith to all our fans...

Whenever Cartsbridge Church put on a ceilidh, Jiggered are delighted to be their band of choice. We've played there many times over the years and this latest visit was a lot of fun. Some of the dancers have been attending dance lessons recently and were keen to show off some of their new moves. I'm pretty sure we witnessed a world exclusive: the "Mayfair Quickstep" being performed to our cover versions of James Blunt's Revolver and Rihanna's We Found Love!! It was unorthodox but brilliant in equal measure!
And now that Christmas is upon us, there are some very impotant things to take care of....Remember your Secret Santa gifts on Thursday night, gang!

It ended up a late Monday as Jiggered spent St Andrew's Evening recording some audio to accompany our soon-to-be-released promo videos. Sam Smith from Green Door Studios was our sound engineer for the evening- his mission was to try and capture the live sound of Jiggered...not a manufactured collection of individually recorded instruments but something authentic representing the warmth and energy of our collective sound! Can't wait for you to hear the finished product and see Stephen's videos too! Be patient, Jiggered fans. One before Christmas, honest.
