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!

Jiggered Ceilidh Band back at Crutherland for wedding

We've played at Crutherland Hotel, East Kilbride loads over the years...it's a really superb venue (great access for the band, a huge big function room- perfect for weddings!). And in charge of proceedings last night was Chris Rock. The Crutherland Banqueting Supervisor presumably gets people going on and on and on about his name but when Jiggered Ceilidh Band spotted it Chris was happy to pose for a quick snap for the blog!

Mhairi and Dawson had hired us for their wedding and asked us to play "Your Song" by Ellie Goulding for their first dance. It went well but the LED dance floor was playing up so we did a second first dance for the couple later with another of their favourite songs "Caledonia" and the photographers managed to get some photos of the happy couple with the dance floor working!

After the break we performed quite a few covers (including some specific requests from guests that were debut performances for Jiggered!).

It was exciting to have Emma along with us as we played as a 5-piece...Emma might be joining Jiggered's lineup in the future (watch this space!).
