Brilliant Brian really made our night. Heard nothing but praise for him from all age groups. He is a brilliant entertainer. Would have no reservations about encouraging others to book him. Many thanks once again.

Brian was great. Very talented and flexible, he traveled and performed solo after the drummer got a broken thumb the week before our wedding. Very accommodating with the schedule of the day shifting about a bit, and his playing/singing was great, good variety and read the crowd/room well. Many guests commented on how great his performance was. Brian did an excellent job with learning our first dance song and tweaking it a bit. Can highly recommend.

The Cattigans were excellent from start to finish . We are so glad that we booked them for our wedding . We had a mix up with music and Brian bent over backwards for us to make sure they were there . They were on key from the minute they got there and would highly recommend them .

We recently hired The Cattigans for our post wedding celebration party in Glasgow. What a night we had, there was such a great atmosphere and it was all down to the music. The band were so professional, they played right on queue and the set was just amazing, exactly what we wanted. EVERYONE I’ve spoken to has told me how great the band were! Can’t thank you enough!!
