The Anne Dickson Band
...........hitting the right note with music for every occasion

The Anne Dickson Band has an established reputation for hitting just the right note whatever the occasion and providing the music guaranteed to get guests up and dancing.
The band was originally formed in 1992 with singer, Anne Dickson teaming up with saxophonist Ali Mutch, guitarist Calum Beange and key board player Dougie Edwards - a group of friends and accomplished musicians with a wealth of experience in a wide range of musical styles.
Having earned a strong following on the pub circuit, the band have long since found themselves much in demand for weddings, anniversary celebrations, parties, corporate functions and a whole host of other events.
As the band has grown and changed over the years, the one essential element bonding each of the musicians together is their huge love music - a passion which comes across in their performance.
As well as having a lively stage present, each of the band members are professional and well accomplished musicians equally at home with a wide spectrum of music from traditional Scottish to folk, pop, jazz, swing, blues, rock and country.
The band usually comprises either a seven or eight-piece line up with the wide range of musical talents often enhanced by guest musicians who have made a name for themselves in their own right.
The band is only to pleased to discuss all your requirements and provide that extra personal touch to ensure a night to remember and a special addition to every occasion.
