In 2012, Gordon got married at Crear with Jiggered performing the ceilidh honours. Fast forward four years and Gordon's brother Stewart got married and he obviously approved of Gordon's choice of band- we were recruited for this one too!
Glasgow's "House for an Art Lover" is a sublime venue, especially in the glorious sunshine we had today. The wedding was an intimate "do"- Jiggered increased the numbers by about 10%. The guests, both Scottish and American, were happy to get up and dance away.
A great wedding to be at. Nice having Andi drumming too.

Over the years we've played at Glasgow's Destiny again and again! It's a great venue if you're planning a wedding or a party. This time it the birthday boy was Henry, who was just turning 70! His wife Maggie was the driving force behind this event...coordinating food and drink (we were stuffed after the snacks, champagne, buffet, dessert and cake which Maggie kept insisting we "wired into") and ensuring the guests were getting up to dance throughout the evening.
Henry gave a short speech and was joined by his family who performed a couple of songs that mean a lot to him. It was nice to hear a bit of Henry's fascinating life story and be a part of the 70th celebrations!
Rob from Destinly looked after us well and we met a few familiar faces. And all done by 9.30pm!
