We're five friends who had all been playing in various well known Scottish wedding and function bands. As Scotland, and particularly Glasgow have a fairly tight night music community we bumped in to each other a lot while performing on the same circuit. Our tastes and approach to performing were so similar that it seemed to make sense for us to get together and create a band from scratch that would be slick and professional but at the same time be fun and exciting.
We think we've achieved that and we're proud to say that our clients seem to think so too.
Everything we do is geared up to make sure your party, event or celebration is as much fun as you could wish for, with songs everyone knows. We're also proud of our professional and organised approach to what is a very important responsibility. We take punctuality, politeness and flexibility very seriously. Why be stressed worrying about your band when you should be full of excitement at the prospect of dancing with your friends and family?
To make sure everything goes like clockwork we employ at our own expense, the services of Scotland's largest and most respected entertainment agency, Hireaband, to handle all our admin and logistics. This allows us to focus on the music and performance aspects of your party while they take care of all the boring but necessary paperwork.
So please have a look round our web site; watch the videos, listen to the demos and read the reviews. If you'd like an instant quote or to check if we're available on your date, just click the instant quote box at the top right hand side of this page and before you know it you'll be dancing to one of the very best party and function bands in the country.
Thanks and congratulations.
The Circus Boys.
Hireaband were very approachable and accommodating. Any queries and alterations to contract times were dealt with professionally and promptly. We had a fantastic night with the band you provided and we had lots of comments and compliments about them. An absolute pleasure to deal with from the beginning.
Circus played at our wedding in September and they were fantastic, the dance floor was packed all night and they played a great range of tunes with something for everyone.
Their version of You Make My Dreams Come True for our first dance was absolutely perfect. So many people said they were one of the best wedding bands that they'd heard, even our caterer asked for their name!
They were really good at communicating beforehand as well and replied quickly to all our emails listening to our requests and coming up with a great playlist. We had an absolute blast the whole night and would definitely recommend them to anyone.
The company (Hireaband) kept us informed of all information we needed throughout the booking process and were extremely helpful from start to finish, making it stress free. They even informed us of when the band were playing so we could see them again. (On the guest list also). John and the lads from 'Circus' came highly recommended and they certainly did not disappoint. Whilst being professional, they were so much fun and were brilliant at reading the room, playing a vast array of songs for all ages that packed the dance floor all night. Book them now before others do..!!! Graeme and Victoria Roughead
We hired Circus based on the information and videos on the Hireaband website. Its always a bit worrying to make decisions based on website information but in this case we needn't have worried. First the Hireaband staff were quick to get back to us with information on availability and cost. Second, Circus were simply brilliant on the night and delivered a performance that we, and all of our guests, thought was excellent.
Circus were fantastic and we absolutely loved the service they provided. We couldn't have been happier with them and will definitely be recommending them to others.
Heading up the Hilton Christmas party! Great night and a great band! Songs I had forgotten about and took me back to the Garage Days! Brilliant night!
Amazing band!!! Highly recommend for a wedding. Had the place rocking from start to finish!

Fabulous band! Circus played at our wedding on 9th September and created a fantastic atmosphere. Such a fun but professional group. Thank you so much guys! x
After coming across Circus at a wedding band showcase, we absolutely loved them and booked them for our wedding on 22nd September 2017. They were so helpful in the run up to the day, even learning a few specific songs we had requested. The dance floor was full all night and we couldn't have asked for a nicer bunch of guys to share our day. So many of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were and we really cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks you so much Johnny and crew, you really were a pleasure from start to finish.
The boys were incredible and guests kept mentioning how good they were and how they kept the fun atmosphere going all night!!!
Really appreciate everything Circus thank you!
We can't recommend Circus enough! Not only were they amazingly talented and professional but they were so much fun and really got everyone up and dancing. Their energy was incredible! Every song they did was brilliant and really had everyone moving. They were so easy to work with and really made an amazing day even better. Thank you so much Circus!
We received great service from Hireaband, they were great at contacting us to keep us up to date with the next steps for arranging songs etc. The band we hired were fantastic, they made sure we were happy with sound and their performance after the first set. They engaged with the crowd and kept everyone on the floor all night.
The band gave our guests have a memorable night. Everyone was commenting on how good they were!
The band were very friendly and personal, asking us a few times if everything was going well.
I couldn't have been happier at the end of the night. A great selection of songs and the band have a great ability to judge the mood and adjust accordingly to get everyone up dancing. We had a full dance floor for the last hour or so!
Would highly recommend. Thanks for giving us a memorable night!
Circus played at my niece's wedding at Glenbervie House Hotel and they were absolutely brilliant, from Stereophonics to Elvis the floor was packed all night, I would recommend to anyone looking for a top class band, many thanks for a great night.
The guys were amazing! Nothing was a problem for them at all. They arrived on time and were ready to go in line with everything else that was happening at the reception. They learned our first dance song and also a song for my Dad & I perfectly. They played amazingly and had everyone on the dance floor all night. They got involved with the guests and really made our night.
We booked circus for our wedding at Dalziel Park Hotel on 27th May 2017. From first dance to last dance the band were absolutely amazing. Before the event the band made sure they had all of our requests and delivered on the night! It's safe to say the dance floor was never empty from old and new to ceilidh the band really done an amazing job!! We couldn't be happier thank you so much for making and amazing day even better!
Hireaband & Circus were absolutely amazing in the run up & on the day!! Made me feel so at ease having started to get stressed on the run up but everyone kept in touch & the night went incredibly amazing, the guys wowed not only us but all our guests also. Thank you to everyone who made our day perfect!!
Great band and great service - thanks :)
Circus absolutely made our wedding - we had so many comments from guests! The dance floor was never empty and the band got everyone involved.
Whenever the band got a chance they were over at me and my husband making sure everything was alright and ensuring that everyone was happy.
They are a fantastic, energetic, fun bunch of guys who clearly love what they do and this was reflected in their brilliant performance.
Hireaband were great and made everything very easy in the lead up to the wedding and were so helpful - so thank you very much!
Circus were amazing!! They had so much energy and sounded fantastic! They were interactive with our guests and ensured everyone was up in the dance floor! Everyone said how good they were. Thank you so much for being so fabulous!
Saw this fab band at the Chester Hotel in Aberdeen for Karen and Lee's wedding dance. The dance floor was jumping all night. If you're looking for a band this is the one xx
Circus were absolutely fantastic the guys are all great. We had them play at our wedding on the 16th April and they just had everyone dancing all night! They are all lovely guys and I would 110% recommend them for your function x
We booked Circus for our wedding on the 8th April 2017 at the Dunblane Hydro. They were excellent from start to finish, keeping the dance floor full throughout the night. Their performance of our specially request first dance song was perfect, exactly what we had hoped for. The guys were a great laugh too. What a great job! Thanks again
My wife and I booked Circus for our wedding reception last night and we couldn't have asked for better entertainment. A great range of songs, expertly performed and a brilliant bunch of guys to boot. Thanks for making our night all the more special gents.
We had Circus play at our wedding last week and they were great. The dance floor was rammed all night! My wife particularly loved the keyboard player :) A great night and we couldn't have asked for any more, and top guys to boot!
Bloody brilliant job at our best friend's wedding!!
"I can't really put into words how great this band were. They were a definite highlight of our day and nothing was too much hassle for them. I would recommend them to anyone - and I have already! The next time I have a special occasion I will be checking them first to see if they are free!"
The band were absolutely outstanding! A total hit and they kept everyone on the dance floor all night. Nothing was too much for them and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band for any occasion. A highlight for everyone on our special day :-)
Amazing band! Played at my cousins wedding last night and honestly one of the best bands for a wedding! Played an amazing mix of music and had people up dancing all night! #NoDiggity
Fantastic band. Lots of interest from friends and family. Just a pity the night went so quickly!
We knew from the start that we wanted a band for our wedding. So glad we found Circus. An amazing band, lovely individuals too. True professionals who knew how to have a good time. We wont forget it and very happy that Circus were a part of it.
Very impressed by the guys performance throughout the whole night. Learned a difficult first dance song very well and would definitely recommend them to anyone. Got everyone involved and added something different with the DJ set for the last hour of the night. Thanks again!
Great band. Used their initiative to get the party started. many of my guests have commented since how great they were.
Just a quick email to say how pleased we were with Circus on Thursday. They were absolutely fantastic and all of our guests made a point of telling us how great they thought the band was!
They're a class act. Thank you.
Circus were fantastic right from the off. It's a great bunch of guys in the band, they were really friendly and they can really play! Their performance for our first dance was really special and straight from that they kept the dance floor busy all night. I would highly recommend them. Thanks for helping to make our special day perfect!
Circus were outstanding - could not have wished for anything more from a band. Would love to organise another event just to book the band again. Highly recommend this band, all our guests loved them too!
The band were brilliant, we couldn't have asked for better guys. Played songs requested, were flexible and accommodating when we asked for an impromptu limbo competition, really nice guys too. We would highly recommend them!!
Hireaband have been great, Gaye has been really helpful every step of the way!
If I get married again, I'd definitely choose Circus!
We were blown away with the professionalism and overall performance of Circus! Every single person who was at our wedding raved about how good the band were. They absolutely nailed our bespoke first dance song and gave us a night that will live long in the memory! Thank you!!
If you could pass onto the band that we received lots of very positive comments on the night and afterwards. If you could also pass on our thanks for a great night that would be great.
Wow! Circus were absolutely amazing. So much effort was put in by each member of the band. They were so fun and everyone loved them. I would highly recommend them for any function and wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future. Also, they were amazing value for money.
Thanks so much to Andy and all the boys!
"Absolutely Fabulous" So many of our guests asked who they were and described these guys as the "Best wedding band they had ever heard". A lot of friends have now asked me for their details & I have suggested the Hireaband site to them.They really were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble & my 2 year old daughter got to go up on stage and play some beats to her favourite song Uptown Funk! Lovely guys. Thank you for making our reception a party to remember.
Circus were excellent, very accommodating & went above and beyond expectations for the evening. They happily adjusted the volume, assisted with ceilidh dancing & set up our first dance on the iPad for us. Will happily recommend them in the future.
Circus were outstanding, from the moment we saw them during their open rehearsal to the last song they played. The group are all friendly, fun and extremely professional and are a great set of musicians. Our guests were blown away by the quality of the band, pretty much everyone commented on them and we regularly spotted our guests just watching them as if at a gig. We can't recommend Circus highly enough, if you need a flexible, professional and high-quality band then Circus are the guys! Thanks for helping to make our wedding the perfect day!
The band didn't start until around 8.30 but that was more to do with dinner running on late. The guys were fantastic! Everybody commented afterwards on how good they sounded, we even got a cheeky selfie with them while they were packing up. We cannot recommend them enough and we were so pleased to book them at such short notice. Thanks again.
Absolutely amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. Everyone at the wedding raved about you guys. Very happy with the performance. - September 2015
Circus were fantastic. They had the dance floor packed all night. Lovely guys who played an excellent range of music. Cannot recommend them enough.
I just wanted to drop you guys a line since the feedback from the wedding on the 4th July was great. The guests obviously really enjoyed the evening and the band, but the general manager was really impressed too, which doesn't happen often. Would you be able to send over some prices and T&C to me and I'd be happy to recommend your band for clients.
The band were great (really nice guys) and their music had everyone dancing. Lots of good comments from guests. Just what we were after. They were also very kind to accommodate our friend singing the first dance to their accompaniment.
Great band, would hire them again, they really kept the people dancing.
Really pleased. Circus were a brilliant band and we couldn't have asked for more on our wedding day. Also the service I got from the hireaband website was top-notch. I would definitely use your service again and recommend to friends! Thanks again.
