The Copycats | Wedding and Events Band Who we are? The Copycats are a vastly experienced live wedding and function band based in Scotland. We perform an eclectic set of classic dance floor tunes plus the addition of live Ceilidh dances when desired. A bouncing dance floor is mandatory at all times!! We are able to offer a 2, 5 or 7 piece band. The 7 piece band includes our fabulous horn section for something a little bit special! Our 2 piece option can be as an acoustic duo or a duo with backing tracks for smaller events where the band are a bit on the large side. This can also be supplied as a solo act. All lineups offer top-class musicians and a mix of Female and Male Vocalists meaning we can cover many genres. You will dance! You will sing along! You may even put your hands in the air like you just don’t care! Ceilidh Our Ceilidh section is a little bit funky and the dances are fully called. We usually stagger the dances through the first set but can play them all in one set of around 1 hour. First Dances Often at weddings, we learn your first dance or you may choose to play the original track. With hundreds of weddings and events under our belt, you are in safe hands from start to finish. No big gaps in between songs here! Here’s what you get: Male and Female vocalists. Up to 3.5 hours of live music within a 4 hour period. Ipod music in between sets and a short playlist after we finish (venue permitting) Feel free to create your own playlist and give it to us on the night. State of the art sound and lighting equipment for up to 300 people. Full PAT test and public liability insurance. Professional reliable service and attention to detail.

Reviews

From customers:

Lee-Ann B, 3 years ago

The Copycats played our wedding (at The Caves in Edinburgh) and really helped make the day complete. Neil and the band added a couple of extra songs on our behalf and absolutely nailed the first dance. It was evident that they really cared about making the occasion special and take pride in their performance. So many people commented on the great atmosphere they created and we would highly recommend them.

Karen D, 2 years ago

Absolutely Brilliant Band. They played at our Wedding Reception and everyone commented on how great they were. They learnt our first dance and even played a couple of special requests from guests. Thanks again guys and I would highly recommend. X
