"The Shakers were fantastic, lots of my guests commented how good they were and how they struggled to leave the dance floor as so many good songs were being played. Really lovely to speak with, personable and down to earth. Would make no hesitation in recommending them. Lots commented on the sax player and how much they enjoyed this."

About us

If you’re looking for a great wedding and function band that offers something a little different, we might be just what you’re after.

The Shakers are a wedding band based in Glasgow that performs at weddings and events all over Scotland.

We've been performing together for more than five years and enjoy nothing more than filling dance floors and making sure that your guests, young and old, hear something they'll enjoy and want to dance to.

We feature male and female vocals plus a brilliant sax player which goes down well with everyone.

You'll hear everything from Glenn Miller to Bruno Mars, Sinatra to Swedish House Mafia and everything in between.  If you fancy some Scottish country dancing, we can play a cracking ceilidh set and we'll even "call" the dances so that everyone can join in.  If you'd like an even more authentic ceilidh sound and a longer experience, then we can call on the services of a superb fiddle player at an additional fee.

We're 100% reliable, easy to get on with and very experienced. We've played in almost every popular Scottish wedding or event venue and we're quite happy to travel to get to you.
