The Copycats | Wedding and Events Band
Who we are?
The Copycats are a vastly experienced live wedding and function band based in Scotland. We perform an eclectic set of classic dance floor tunes plus the addition of live Ceilidh dances when desired. A bouncing dance floor is mandatory at all times!!
We are able to offer a 5 or 7 piece band. The 7 piece band includes our fabulous horn section for something a little bit special!
Both lineups offer top-class musicians and a mix of Female and Male Vocalists meaning we can cover many genres.
You will dance! You will sing along! You may even put your hands in the air like you just don’t care!
Our Ceilidh section is a little bit funky and the dances are fully called. We usually stagger the dances through the first set but can play them all in one set of around 1 hour. A fiddle player an also be added to the lineup if desired.
Often at weddings, we learn your first dance or you may choose to play the original track.
