Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

if the need to change timings arise I will do my utmost to cater for your changes. I am a full-time musician so I have no day job to interfere with time changes.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

That is no problem at all

How much time do you need to set up?

preferably 90 minutes to be on the safe side.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

I am willing to discuss any particular songs you wish from my setlist. It is you that is booking me.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring everything that is normally required. if there is something unusual requested we can discuss that. Everything is workable. believe me. lol.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

yes, normally up 5 new songs can be requested subject to ample time to learn these songs. They also have to be songs that any working musician would normally learn (Nessun Dorma is not normal lol) Should you wish more than 5 new songs then there is an extra charge as it takes time to learn these songs.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

om mixed audience genres audiences love that I will create mashups of choruses of many of the favourite singalong songs so that everyone can sing all the time. They also love the happy atmosphere I creat while walking around performing by the use of wireless mics on my voice and instruments.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Too many to list them all.here are some. Stirling Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Cameron House, St Andrew golf course, Crieff Hydro, Sheraton Hotel and Balmoral Edinburgh and many others.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

far too many across too many genres. I love almost all music.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

British Embassy Moscow, Glasgow City Hall, many folk festivals.

Over the years Spectra have used Bob Ferguson and his bands Celtic Horizon and Beggars Row to entertain many of our corporate clients. Bob is a natural charmer, has a great voice and delivers many traditional and more contemporary songs with great style. He always has fun on stage, loves to interact with guests and uniquely can always be relied on to read the room so that audiences feel they are part of the experience. We love having Bob play for our clients!

Imagine a long haired fiery Scot in a kilt with both muscats blazing... ... Now imagine the same image with a guitar & a microphone blazing a path of frenzied fun, music & singing that never fails to give everything every time, your crowd will lap it up & clap it up. a true troubadour in his own right!
