Carnoustie Golf Hotel Wedding for Jiggered

Carnoustie Golf Hotel Wedding for Jiggered

Kirsty and Mark booked us up for their wedding at the hotel at Carnoustie Golf Course. They were absolutely adamant they wanted to kick off the evening with all of their guests joining them in the Gay Gordons rather than have a first dance. So we did exactly that. However, there were a few times when the newlyweds took to the floor during the evening to dance together to some of their favourites...they could totally have pulled off a lovely first dance! 

There's no doubt that while many familiar faces were giving Jiggered the thumbs up, we've also collected a fair few new fans last night too...with enquiries of bookings for 2019 and 2020 on the cards.

A brilliant evening- great chat with Team Jiggered.

Jiggered Ceilidh Band at CAP fundraiser

Jiggered Ceilidh Band at CAP fundraiser

We've been doing a bit of recording recently (keep your eyes peeled for some exciting new Jiggered content we'll be unveiling soon). It was nice to be back performing live to a crowd of ceilidhers!

This time we were in East Kilbride for a fundraiser. The charity CAP (Chrstians Against Poverty) do a fantastic job helping folk get free from debt and stabilise their financial situation. They've had a fair bit of publicity recently through the BBC's programme Debt Saviours https://capuk.org/debtsaviours and it was a joy to play at this event raising money for CAP.

It's been a while since I've been asked for so many business cards so it looks like we'll be playing again for a few of these guests in the future!

The buffet looked amazing but Team Jiggered had already feasted at the Stirlings...thanks Susan.

Jiggered back at Beancross for Found Church Ceilidh

Jiggered back at Beancross for Found Church Ceilidh

Performing at weddings is always a privilege. But we don't have any clients who routinely get married over and over (thankfully)!

It's also a real honour to be involved in ceilidhing again and again for folk like Found Church. They have us at their big church ceilidh regularly and it's lovely to come back to see the same faces dancing about and finding out what's been happening since our last visit. Beancross is a superb venue and the food's ace. 

Looking forward to Michelle getting in touch when it's time for the next one.

Jiggered Ceilidh Band back at Crutherland for Wedding!

Jiggered Ceilidh Band back at Crutherland for Wedding!

It's hard to beat the MacDonald CrutherlandHouse for us.

Convenient loading access for equipment, it's handy to get to for us, the room is superb for a ceilidh, they do cracking tattie scones as part of the buffet and you can play board games in the lounge! 

Philip and Jacqueline booked us for their wedding and the crowd were fantastic. Some had jetter over from New York for the wedding and others had travelled up from England too. And what a Scottish celebration we had. The floor was packed for every dance and it's always reassuring when the groom exerts himself so much that his shirt is drenched in sweat and he needs to have a lie down on the dance floor!!

Another ceilidh masterclass. 

All the best Mr and Mrs Anderson!
