Scottish Wedding Band Goes Corporate! 


Scottish wedding band Northern Star performs at Bailie Gifford annual party.

We were delighted once again to be asked to perform at the annual Bailie Gifford party night. This is a massive event for over 750 employees and partners held every February at the EICC, which is the only venue in Edinburgh with the capacity to manage the numbers seated. This year we saw the usual jazz band in the lobby, and a nice little 4 piece jazz quartet entertain through dinner. We started with a short ceilidh set, in which the floor was mobbed!! We had 4 full length Strip the Willows! Then the main band took the stage for a non-stop 2 hour show. We hope we’re asked back next year, great night was had by all. It’s not unusual for a wedding band to do corporate events, but it’s certainly requires a different approach. No ballads, no breaks in the music, and you need to compact a usual 4 hour show into 2 hours, (greatest hits!!), We love doing them, despite the hanging around and the later finishes. 2014 will see us do a number of high profile events, so stay tuned.
