Scotland is home to some of the finest cover bands in Europe...bands that perform regularly at high-end corporate events and celebrity weddings.

In this blog post, we'll list out the 8 most popular wedding bands in Scotland for 2020 on FixTheMusic, based on the number of their confirmed bookings in 2020 and 2021.

You'll see that there is a huge range of styles and that many of the cover bands offer something a bit different to make your wedding truly memorable.

All of these bands perform sets for dancing, as well as chillout music if you require a background set, e.g. for an afternoon cocktail event.

Some of these wedding bands can also incorporate a horn section (trumpet and saxophone), as well as electric string instruments to add another dimension to weddings and events.

Wedding bands on FixTheMusic have public liability insurance and PAT tested equipment.

FixTheMusic's cover bands perform in a variety of styles, from funk, blues, soul, acoustic, vintage and rock 'n' roll to R&B, Britpop, electro-swing and indie rock and pop covers. We also have a range of outstanding roaming bands, a particularly popular genre currently.
