About Astoria


Astoria have recently supercharged their Line up by adding female vocals which means there is nothing from any genre that this band cannot cover 

Astoria, based from South West of Scotland, are a band who have played together since becoming teenagers, travelling across Scotland and the UK performing both original material and covers. Due to location resulting in lack of opportunity, the band have always been driven to be one of the best Wedding bands Scotland/ UK has to offer. 

With a diverse and expanding setlist, Astoria have always strived to push themselves to deliver outstanding covers which include both old favourites and trying to be unique thinking outside the box. Entertaining, young and contemporary with the contrasting dual male vocals from Joey and Gerry, whether it be heavy rock, or soft ballads, Astoria have all bases covered. From the 60's up to present day, Astoria are the band to make sure you have an event you will never forget.

Now being one of the busiest wedding bands in our territory, we are now driven to break into the  Scottish live wedding bands circuit and become one of the busiest acts this agency has to offer. Astoria guarantees a professional and exciting performance no matter the event with the outstanding musicianship and built up experience of each member. Booking this band is to be thoroughly recommended. 

What our clients say about Astoria


"Astoria have played the Friday night dance during our annual Portpatrick RNLI Lifeboat week for the last couple of years. This draws a crowd ranging from the ages of 18 to 80. Astoria always plays a fantastic selection of music that people throughout the age range love to get up and dance to. Many of our customers when leaving at the end of the night requested that we bring Astoria back again next year and would love to have them play for us again in future!"
