"Wildcard" are a male 4 piece versatile live band who all share lead vocals and also offer a live Scottish ceilidh option. Their collective background and experience of musical expertise of weddings, corporate functions & parties has made them a very popular choice since exclusively joining "Music For Scotland". Together they have developed live entertainment with a difference, through observation and listening, so that each event is tailored to your individual or collective needs.

So please view them live on the HD video featuring songs by Snow Patrol / Travis / The Killers & Rod Stewart , but please find time to listen to the alternative audio-files for a further selection of material. All the material is as they play it live, no studio overdubs or trickery involved.
 What you hear is exactly what you get !!.
 
Providing a friendly and helpful service, as well as entertainment, has not gone unnoticed. Please check the testimonial page on this site, showing client`s praise and reviews of their previous bookings. Apart from great feedback, they pride themselves on being communicative, punctual and of smart appearance.

They cover a wide spectrum of modern and classic material from all the genres, and apart from providing ceilidh live or by ipod, they can usually cater for your 1st dance by learning it, not busking it, and in addition also provide interval / break music of your choice, or even a D.J if necessary. Your night will also be in lights, with a professional lighting system highlighting them and your guests on the dance floor.
 
Each show is never too loud but always energetic, including fun audience interaction with the aid of our wandering radio-mics.
These are also available for your use on announcements and speeches etc.

Also, the travelling distance is not an issue, so call first to discuss. And if you find that the HD video and audio aren't enough !!!, please ask a
"Music For Scotland" agent for other available material, or alternatively where you can view the band live at a function or at a private showcase/rehearsal.
Size is not an issue either. They can cater for all aspects of the entertainment market by providing small set-ups for the small & quiet private weddings, birthday parties,etc, or can expand to a full scale corporate show requirement with a large Public address system and extra professional lighting.
 
Lastly, the guys know that an essential part of being an entertainer is to be able to read the audience. Speak to them. Listen to them.
They invite and involve the audience to be part of the show, and let everyone go home buzzing, having thoroughly enjoyed their night out.
 
Past venues such as - Cameron House, Gleneagles, Turnberry, Edinburgh Castle, Balbirnie Hotel, McDonald Hotels, Hilton Hotel Chain, Ramada, Corpthorne Hotels, Atholl Palace, Apex International chain, Barony Castle, Signet Rooms, Lodge on the Loch, Glenskirlie Castle, Solsgirth Hotel, St.Andrews Old Course, West Park, Lennoxlove Castle, Fingask Castle, Western House Hotel, Fernie Castle.
Various Corporate / Awards ceremonies - Scottish Water, Ayr Racecourse, CHAS, Daily Record hero awards alongside The Drifters, Darius and Beverley Knight and blues legend Tam White.
