Empire performed at our wedding last weekend - they were absolutely fantastic! The dancefloor was full all night and so many of our guests have said how amazing you were! We loved their rendition of our first dance song too! Can't recommend them highly enough! Thank you Heather and the rest of the band x

Heather and all the band at Empire are amazing! From the first moment I contacted, Heather was so helpful and friendly, and her personality came across through our emails so knew there and then we had made the right choice! They learnt our first song Arms - Christina Perri, bit different, not the usual traditional wedding songs people have, but they made it sound beautiful and everyone was asking what the song was. Loads of our guests had not seen each other in years so our wedding was a massive catch-up/get together for them, yet the ceilidh numbers the band covered got everyone on the floor. A decision Heather and myself went against my husband who claimed to dislike ceilidhs and did not want those included. Definitely a crowd pleaser and helped guide the dance when nobody had a clue what they were doing!! Haha.Thank you so much Empire! �

Empire played at our wedding two weeks ago at Myres Castle. They were absolutely incredible! When I initially spoke to Heather to book them late last year, she was so helpful in creating the perfect night for us. We wanted largely covers with ceilidh music sprinkled throughout and that's exactly what we got! Our guests were up dancing the entire night, and with the expect ceilidh calling even our American guests were managing! 🙂 we also were so thankful that Empire were able to learn our first dance song for us and put on a beautiful version of it that we will always remember. Thank you all so much!!! Courtney & Douglas xx

My husband and I had Empire at our wedding in Edinburgh April 2017. On the run up the communication between ourselves and the band was open, excellent and reassuring. Heather managed any request, including one very last minute which they accommodated without complaint. They were absolutely excellent wonderful and amazing live. We had so many positive comments from our guests. The balance and mixing of regular songs and ceilidh helped with the mix of Scottish and non Scots guests. They dont sound like they are playing live, their sound is so clear and accurate. They enjoy what they do and it translates onto audiences. I would book them again in a heart beat. I hope to see them at another wedding because i enjoyed them so much.

Wonderfully band for a wedding, the fact that the dance floor started filling up whilst they were warming up and never quite emptied until they signed off suggests how awesome they were. Highly recommend.

***BRILLANT WEDDING BAND***Empire played for our wedding on the 4th of December and were great. Heather, their lead singer is also their person of contact and was always very prompt in her communication, we felt very confident with our band choice before the night. On the night itself we were blown away with their professionalism, friendliness and above all their ability to keep our dance floor full all night! We had loads of compliments for Empire and would recommend them to anyone wanting a fun night of dancing at their wedding. Thank you guys for helping to make our wedding amazing!

Planning a wedding from the US is a challenge in its own, but finding a band I wouldn't be able to meet/hear until the day of the wedding was super scary! I heart music and a good band must pull a great live performance off perfectly! I searched high and low. Immediately when I found EMPIRE I knew they were going to awesome. Heather was so easy to email with and they are EXTREMELY accessible, answering emails within minutes it felt like (even with our time changes!). We had a special request of a couple songs and they learned them easy peasy. I wasn't even nervous, I knew they had this! Wedding day comes, they are adorable. I have 60 Americans in kilts, in Culzean castle, whole schabang, and they have everyone on the dance floor, just killin it! I like to pretend they are like the band at the end of the movie "10 Things I Hate About You" - Save Ferris? Is that an American thing? 🙂 But yeah they are even awesomer, if you can imagine that. Dancing to Rage on my wedding day? Check! Learning Celideh dances? Check! I could go on and on and I have been for the past 6 months since the wedding! I was just over the moon with these guys and soooo grateful my googling for hours led me to them! You can't find a better band, or at that a better group of people to share your big special day with! Book them right now and get your boogie in a big white dress on! xoxoxoo Nicola

A massive thanks to Empire, you guys were amazing on Saturday night! With the gig being very last minute due to problems with another band, you dealt with everything in the most professional manner and helped put our minds at ease. What a lovely friendly bunch, and thoroughly Entertaining! All of our guests were commenting on how fantastic the band sounded! I would highly recommend this band, please don't think twice about hiring Empire for your future functions.. X
