Great band. I’ve never seen the dance floor at a wedding so full! Everyone commented about how amazing the apollos were, amazing.

Alexander House, 08-Nov-23

We are so glad we chose the Apollos for our wedding in Nov 2023. From the minute they started playing, the dancefloor was full. Our guests were very complimentary of the band and a few even asked for their details for future event! We can't thank the Apollos enough for providing excellent entertainment for us and our guests. Thank you!

Due to unforseen circumstances, the Apollos had to step in at short notice. Despite not having time on their side, the were cool, calm and collected over email, which made us feel relaxed during such a busy period. They even went to the trouble of learning our niche first dance song, which they absolutely smashed. They also played some other special requests, which was so lovely and very much appreciated. Not only were they incredibly friendly, but all the musicians shined on the day. We loved both the celeidh tracks and covers, and we know our guests did too (lots of our loved ones were raving about them... even days after!). We'd definitely recommend the Apollos to anyone planning a wedding or other big event.

One word comes to mind when we think back to our wedding day with the Apollos, and that is INCREDIBLE! Honestly, we could not have imagined having a wedding band this good! Every single song they played was executed perfectly and so many of our guests have said what an amazing time they had and how impressed they were with the quality of the band. They were also so helpful and easy to talk to on the run up to the wedding; speaking with band members Ben and David via email was so easy and they were so flexible and happy to work with any and all our suggestions. In particular, we requested two specific songs for our first dance (You and Me by Lifehouse) and the father-daughter dance (Forever Now by Michael Buble), and not only did they instantly agree to take these on but oh my god they delivered them perfectly! They didn't even sound like covers, they just made them their own and it makes us so happy to think back on our day and remember the evening being so perfect! We want to express our sincerest gratitude to the Apollos for helping to make our wedding day so special, and if anyone is thinking of booking them, we would highly recommend you do!

The Apollos played at our wedding on the 26th August. The band were amazing, everyone was commentating on how good they were and the dance floor was full all evening. The ceilidh was also exceptional! Would highly recommend the Apollos and give them 5 stars, if you’re looking for the best wedding band here they are!

Hi you guys We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your amazing performance at our wedding on the 22nd July. You were absolutely fantastic and really made our night. All our guests said how brilliant you were and were impressed with your set list, and of course, everyone especially loved the ceilidh. Also HUGE thank you for playing Just a Girl! It was so well done and I'm so glad my friend recorded a snippet of it so that I can re-play and remember it

Hi David We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for an incredible night on Friday! Although the floor wasn't always packed, there were a lot of seat dancers. Everyone we have spoken to loved all of the music and were so impressed with the band's range of songs. But, most importantly we absolutely loved you guys - I'm just gutted I missed some of the big songs as I had to mingle or get pictures taken haha. The whole day went by so fast and I don't think we thanked you for our first dance song. It was perfect! It was the exact vibe we were looking for, and so impressed you put it together in such a short timescale. Our choice has definitely been a talking point, hopefully it's one to add to your setlist in future ?? Thanks again and hopefully we'll get another chance to hear you guys again at some point!

I really can’t give The Apollos higher praise! They absolutely MADE my wedding! The group played my friends wedding last year and were amazing so I booked them for my own. Absolutely fantastic and people are still talking about how great the band were.

Hannah Curley, Callander

The Byre at Inchyra, 22-Jul-23

Absolutely brilliant! We had great feedback from our guests on their set list and we were made up that they’d learnt No Doubt & Fleetwood Mac for us. The sound was spot on and the band friendly and approachable. You were known as ‘The band that can do it all’ from our relatives and we’d definitely recommend you or hire you again for future events! Thank you so much for making our evening full of fab music, questionable dancing and good times!

Hayley Care, Perth

Sneaton Castle, 17-Jul-23

The Apollos were outstanding and a fantastic addition to our wedding celebration. The music and instruction for each of the ceilidh dances were amazing and made the evening extremely enjoyable for both those familiar with ceilidhs and those who were new. Aside from the ceilidh music they performed more mainstream music to fantastic quality. We were very impressed and we got many compliments from other guests as well. We would highly recommend The Apollos to anybody looking for a band for an event, especially if they are interested in ceilidhs but even if they are not, the music on its own was more than enough for our recommendation.

Cerys Hambley, Whitby, YO21 3QN

Dundas Castle, 19-May-23

Can't fault the Apollos at all, they were amazing and kept the dance floor busy all night! Their sound was brilliant, they looked the part and were just the best addition to our day. We can't thank them enough!!! Will be recommending to everyone x

Ellen Ferguson, Edinburgh

Caledonian Hotel, 27-May-23

Brilliant - When we got engaged, the two things we wanted most at our wedding was a brilliant band and a ceilidh. And you more than delivered! The dance floor was full all night and we both loved your version of Bowie.?? Thanks also for learning our extra song requests - and so many guests have mentioned how much they enjoyed your set.

Nigel Anthony, Edinburgh

Boturich Castle, 28-Dec-22

The Apollos were exceptional. From that first to the last dance of the night they had the floor full. The balance of covers and ceilidh was exactly right for our guests. My husband really enjoyed singing with them creating one of the highlights of the wedding.

We are so glad we made the decision to book The Apollo's. They were absolutely fabulous and everyone was raving at how well they performed. We wouldn't have changed a thing!

The Cowshed, Crail, 08-Oct-22

Band were great from start to finish, communication was speedy and they were very well organised, timely and friendly. The music was incredible, everyone loved the acoustic set during the day and the night time set had everyone on dance floor. Brilliant and would recommend to anyone!

Lauren Wilson, Crail

Dynamic Earth, 07-Oct-22

The band were friendly in pre-event communications and helpful with arranging song choices for the night, including picking up our chosen song for the first dance. On the night, they did a great job entertaining everyone and being open to allowing me to join them on stage for a song as well. Very happy to recommend them to anyone else looking for an events band!

John Riddoch, Edinburgh

Runningburn, 06-Aug-22

We absolutely loved having The Apollos as our weding band. The whole party, half Scottish half French, loved them and the the Ceilidh dancing music and calling was excellent (even counting in French!). Ben was brilliant in the lead up with any questions or organisation we had. We would absolutely recommend The Apollos to anyone for their wedding day.

Iain Sim, Kelso

House for an Art Lover, 03-Sep-22

The Apollos were great to work with. The communication was fluid and gave us plenty of time to make choices for our first dance and entry/exit music. They have a large setlist but were also open to requests/suggestions to tailor the evening to our preferences. Most importantly, they adapted to our guests, picking up on what people were enjoying most (blinding lights was a banger!) and sprinkling ceilidh dances in here and there. It was great!

Ross Noble, House for an Art Lover

Colstoun House, 13-Aug-22

Hello guys.  Sorry its been a little while. We're about to go on honeymoon so we wanted to send a little note to say thank you.  Our wedding day was truly perfect. Hilariously perfect actually. It all fell into place. And so thank you for being a part of it. 

Daniel Kirk

Hi Ben (and all The Apollos), We just wanted to say thank you again for playing at our wedding. I was coming over to say thank you when you were leaving but it was impossible for me to walk across the room in les than half an hour on Saturday! We thought you were brilliant, and Ben and Fiona's acoustic sets were perfect. The calling for the ceilidh dancing was fantastic (especially the counting in French was a lovely touch), all the French guests (and indeed the Scottish guests) were telling us how brilliant you were. We hope you enjoy your jam and all the best for future gigs! Many Thanks, Iain & Aurore

Iain Sim

Hi Guys, Now that we have digested the last week, I just want to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU! Every single guest we have spoken to has said how amazing our band was, I don’t think the dance floor was empty all night. You have been a dream to work with, getting back to me so quickly with any questions or queries. It was very special to us that you learned our wedding song choices and they did not disappoint, you were fantastic. Thank you for your part in making our day so special. The Millar’s x

Pitbauchlie House Hotel, 04-Jun-22

One word - wow!!! From the first email to the last dance they were truly exceptional. Ben was our main point of contact in the lead up to the wedding. He responded very quickly and couldn’t have been nicer when we changed our minds 100 times! The communication was professional, quick and reassuring at all times. The Apollos arrived on time and set up promptly, and we’re ready to go (possibly before we were!) They had the dance floor packed all night and created a brilliant atmosphere! We had a good mix of ceilidhs and covers and everyone commented on how good they were. Our first dance was perfect, and we really enjoyed hearing them play. A few of our friends are recently engaged, and have already asked us to pass on their details following the night as they truly were exceptional. Thank you to The Apollos for providing the perfect atmosphere and ambience for a perfect day. What a night!!

Lauren Mairs, Dunfermline

Eskmills Venue , 07-May-22

The Apollos were great! Played a great selection of tracks that got everyone up dancing and also managed to get great participation in the ceilidh dances. Finally, they did a magnificent job of Bruce Springsteen's 'Tougher than the Rest' for our first dance. Thanks guys and girls!

Kevin Stewart, Musselburgh

Ardoe House hotel, 31-Mar-22

The Apollos were amazing they were really easy to talk to and very accommodating with our music requests. They clearly explained what songs they could perform and accepted one or two special requests if needed. We selected a range of ceilidh dances along with pop music. They had al of our family and friends dancing. Even those we never thought we would see on the dance floor. 10 out of 10 very talented band who will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Sheri Milan, Aberdeen AB12 5YP

The Hub, 28-Dec-19

They were awesome! We absolutely loved them as did all our guests. They did a brilliant mix of songs and ceilidh and they were kind enough to learn all 3 special songs we requested even though they said they could only guarantee learning 1 - that meant so much to us! They also called the ceilidh dances really well which was great as it was the first time doing Scottish country dancing for a lot of our friends. We couldn't recommend them more! 10/10

The band were absolutely fantastic,friendly, bubbly & exactly what we wanted for our big day. They performed our first 2 songs perfectly, You're my best friend by Queen & Edge of seventeen by Stevie Nicks & mixed it up by playing some ceilidh dancing. The Apollos got so many compliments by guests at the end of the night as they played a mixture of songs to keep every age group happy. It was a pleasure of having them at our wedding & I would not hesitate having them at any other function we may have.

Huntingtower Hotel, 23-Sep-17

Very pleased we chose the Apollos as our wedding band! We saw them at a showcase and were so impressed we didn't stay for the other bands and as they only had our date left we took it as a sign and booked them there and then! They did not disappoint! They absolutely nailed our first dance and the rest of the night just got better! A great band was a priority for us and the Apollos met every expectation! Many thanks, just wish we could do it again!!

The apollos were fantastic. Before the event, they made contact and talked through what they could do onnthe night and what they needed. They were polite and friendly and on the night went down a storm with our guests. A sign of a great band is a full dance floor and there was no room on the floor at our wedding reception. Apollos, thank you for making our wedding reception so enjoyable.
