Brian was great! He kept me up to date with all communications and let me know what type of music he could offer. My party was a mixture of ages ranging from 18-70 and everyone loved every second. Would definitely book again!

This is an easy 5* rating across all parameters. Not only is Brian a highly talented and accomplished musician, he is also a lovely person to deal with. Brian is proactive in working to ensure that the music on your wedding day is personalised to your tastes. We feel very fortunate to have found Brian, and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Brian went out of his way to learn the many songs requested in advance by our guests. Brian is an incredible musician both vocally and on the guitar and also an amazing performer. He gets everyone on the dance floor and really gets the crowd going! He tailored the evening to meet all of our requests. I highly recommend Brian for any event but he was absolutely perfect for our evening music at our wedding. Thanks Brian! Thanks again :) Sarah & Euan

“Firstly, a massive thank you to Brian Cattigan. Brian travelled from Stirling to perform at our wedding in Aberdeenshire and without him our day would not have been the same. He came on first after dinner and lifted the mood immediately to get the party started - and damn, this man can sing! Everyone we’ve spoken to from the day said how great Brian was. Brian was also super accommodating to our idea of how the night would run and just great to work with. He alternated sets with our Ceilidh band (Hipflask) and together they put on an exceptional evening of entertainment! We will definitely be looking for Brian Cattigan again for our next big party!” Thanks again mate, you really were cracking!
