Latest reviews of our Acoustic Bands in Edinburgh

Daniel Docherty
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Where can I start! Daniel has been fantastic throughout the process from the moment we checked out his profile on this. Good communication and understanding of what we were looking for. Daniel has such a great vibe which was totally what we wanted for our special day. Even with our last minute decision for a first dance he was more than happy to learn a song in just a couple of minutes. A true professional in every sense of the word. Also very accommodating and helpful for those who wanted to sing for us in the night 😅 Anyone who is looking for the best party/ atmosphere this is your guy! "

FAQs about hiring Acoustic Bands in Edinburgh

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any acoustic band play my favourite song?

Professional acoustic bands will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that acoustic bands may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the acoustic band's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do acoustic bands take to set up?

Your acoustic band will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the acoustic band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our acoustic bands are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our acoustic bands will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
