Hi Anne,

Jamie and I would just like to say a massive thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding at the Drumossie hotel. We had such a fantastic night and a large part of that was down to your band! The music was excellent and catered for a wide range of musical tastes. Many of our guests have commented on what a great band you were and what a fantastic night it was.
We will definately recommend you to others - thanks again for making our night so wonderful!!

Mr & Mrs Robinson

Hello Anne,
We Just wanted to drop you and the rest of the gang a wee line to say a massive THANK YOU.
You made our wedding night amazing, there were people dancing all night.
We will definitely recommend you to others, we are glad that rhythm n' reel suggested you and we must admit we were slightly nervous as we had never heard you before; indeed we had nothing to worry about! You rocked the joint!
Thank you to all of you.
Attached are a few pics also.

Hi Anne We just wanted to drop you an email to say a huge thank you for last night.
The band were amazing - everybody commented on how great you all were, we thought you were fantastic & made the night.
Thanks also for leaving the sound system so the dodgy wedding dancing could continue even further into the night. We'll certainly recommend you in the future.
Warmest regards
Mr & Mrs Aird!!!!

Cheers again,

Hi there Anne,
Sorry for our delay in thanking you and the band for the great night we had in the Drumossie for our wedding on the 20th Aug.
From the moment you started, to the time that it ended , we all had a ball !
The great mix of music went down very well with the crowd , with many saying what a fantasic time they had, but could not believe how quick the night went !
Many thanks again for letting our families have a wee shindig in the intermission!
All in all, Karin and I really appreciated your time and effort in making our day such a happy and memorable occasion.

Kindest Regards,
Craig & Karin Alexander.

Hi Anne, just like to say thankyou to you and the band for helping to make Mairi's wedding a success.

Ruth and I would sincerely like to thank you and your band for playing at Catriona and Davies's wedding on saturday.
The variety, musianship and continuity of your bands performance was excellent.
We thoughoughly enjoyed dancing to your music.
I did personally thank each member of your band but at the time did not have the chance to speak to you as you were busy at the end with a number of guests. (Hopefully they were enquiring about booking you).
Once again than you all very much.

Malcolm Hicks

Anne and Band,

A huge thank you to you, and your band for making our wedding dance such a good one! A special thank you to your band also for learning our first dance song, helping make our evening even more special. You blew everyone away with the collection of songs and your pure brilliance. Sore feet from dancing was the most common complaint. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone holding a special event. As you are what made it!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

We just wanted to thank you so much for helping to make our wedding the best day ever. I know we will only be repeating what you have been told by many others but we were so impressed with how fantastic you were. Leading up to the wedding when people asked who our band was, as soon as we said it was you guys, numerous replies were "oh you'll have the best night ever". All night long people commented on how great you were and we are still hearing from people complimenting you. The dance floor buzzed all night and the atmosphere was brilliant. One of my favourite songs is 9-5 by Dolly Parton and I hadn't even requested it and you played it much to my delight! We will only be hoping that any wedding we get invited to from now on have booked you.

Thank you so much.
Sara and Allan Lipp


Hi Anne,

Absolutely brilliant. I've already recommended you to others and will add you to our link page on our website when we revamp next month.

Thanks again and best wishes for the future,

Marianne & Derek Newlands
Absolutely wonderful night! I made quite a lengthy request of songs prior to our wedding on 14th October 2006 and expected perhaps one or two to be played. The band were phenomenal and played EVERY SINGLE REQUEST and smoothly went from one era of music to another with true class and style. The dance floor was full from the start to finish and everyone continues to rave on about the band to us. Superb night made by the best band in the highlands! Absolutely fantastic evening had by all and we will have fond memories of the night forever. Thank YOU ALL xxx .

The A D Band/Cairn Pub Appreciation Society

I've been coming to The Cairn, Carr Bridge, for New Year, for over 10 years now. Prior to this, i have spent New Year in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aviemore, Glencoe, Arran, Prestwick & Ayr. Since my first NY in CB, i have been nowhere else! I'm hooked!!Even pregnant, i still managed to get my Cairn/AD Band fix! Quick trip to the Struan to see Gilly (more dancing space!) before midnight, was always part of the routine. Then call in to Pine Ridge for a wee dram before returning to the New Year Capital of the Highlands (also known as the Rowanlea Bar, Cairn Hotel, Carr Bridge) to rock/hum/harmonize/sing/dance on the tables/boogie the night away with friends and family. i must confess that i would never previously have considered celebrating New Year, whilst dancing/partying in a pub with my parents!!!! BUT since i discovered Carr Bridge, and the fabulous & friendly way of life, i wouldn't consider spending New Year anywhere else!!!!!!!!!! The embarrassing fact that i have discovered, is that even though he is shorter than all three of his daughters, table dancing can produce slight injuries/scrapes to the top of his head of my father! .

Lynsey & Colin Fisher

Hi Anne & Co, We just wanted to write and thank you very much for playing at our wedding dance on 12th August 2006 at The Ben Wyvis Hotel, Strathpeffer. We had a fantastic day and night and everyone at the dance had a brilliant time. Thank you so much for making our big day even more special. Love Lynsey & Colin. xx .

Andrew Grant

Anne - sincere apologies for not contacting you sooner after Sarah's wedding. I had hoped to have a chat and thank you all at the end but got involved in organizing the buses and making sure that folk got home and went on the correct bus. We all had a great time and everyone has been very kind and commented on how they enjoyed the day and night. That is in no small way due to you and your band. The music was excellent and the dance floor was full from the beginning. Sarah and Alex were delighted and it completed their night. Everyone I have spoken to has said how much they enjoyed the music so hopefully you will have even more bookings in the future!! Thanks again and take care. Andy .


What a great wedding band - everyone at our wedding dance had an absolute blast - a very talented bunch of musicians - thanks for helping making Nicola and Andrew's day special. .

Hi. Iv been doing the sound for bands for quite a few years now and i run a recording studio just outside glasgow so i hear a lot of bands. I was in Cafe Mambo in Avimore on New Years Day and heard you guys. It was amazing. You guys are the best cover band iv heard and ill be passing your website on to and recommending you to lots of people!
Thanks for a great night of entertainment.

Hello Anne,
Sharon here from the wedding at The Drumossie on 25th June. I've been offline for 8 weeks now which has been such a bloody pain! I didn't have an address for you and couldn't find your phone number to thank you all so very much for our wonderful evening. It really was fantastic, the band are the best i've ever heard. The whole family really enjoyed you all so much. So to you all, many, many thanks to you all, you worked so hard.

Kindest regards,
Sharon X .
