High Wards,, 22-Jul-17
The Royales are MASSIVELY accomplished performers, with some of their covers being better than the originals - and that is no exaggeration. What also brought home to us exactly how good they are were the hugely positive comments we then had over the following few days from our wedding guests; comments like "They were awesome!" were not uncommon. The Royales remind me very much of a band south of the border called The Overtures, who perform 60's covers with equal aplomb, though they lack the Scottish "edge" and musical experience that The Royales have in spades. We wanted a band who could cover lots of our favourite tracks (Scottish bands there too) as the theme of our wedding was Wedfest 2017 - a rock- & pop music-themed event, and the boys in The Royales didn't just hit the target, they hit the bull time and time again. Thank you Royales for rocking our wedding day! You are THE BEST!

They were fantastic! The dance floor was full all night and they really made our day so special by providing such great entertainment! All our guests commented on how good the Royales were. We could not fault them at all. The songs they chose really suited the guests too and they seemed to know what would work best. Their performance was superb! Thank you Royales!!!

We gave glyn 2 weeks to do our first dance song, he and the band smashed it. The rest of the tunes had the dance floor full at all times and they were also so good as to allow one of the guest join in with a vocal. So many of my guests have been asking who they were and where they can book them which is testament to how good they were. Honestly would not have changed a thing. Phenomenal.

Loved the song choices and made me feel relaxed from the minute they arrived! Comment today from a friend 'some of the songs the band played were even better than the original' Thanks again guys.

The Royales were by far the best band I've ever heard play at a wedding they kept our guests entertained and made the performance very personal. We could not have asked for a better band to play our special day. They made it perfect. Quality + Quality = Excellence!

Hi Glynn, We just got back from honeymoon last week so just getting organised! Just wanted to say thank you so much to you and the guys for your performance at our wedding. You were superb and we couldn't have asked for more. Throughout the night I had people come up to me and tell me how great our band was and even now we're back, people are still talking about what a great time they had and how you guys were excellent. I think the fact the dance floor was packed the whole night spoke for itself. We will never hesitate in recommending you to others and I'll make sure I let Music Scotland know how pleased we were. I don't think I got a chance to speak to you at the end to say thanks as you guys just seemed to get tidied away un-noticed. Very professional from start to finish. Claire and I love music and the band were always going to play a major part in what is potentially the most important day of our lives, you more than lived up to our expectations and we wont forget how big a part you guys played making our day perfect. Thanks again.

Ingliston Equestrian Centre, Bishopton, 26-Jul-13
Where to start... Having the Royales as our band was one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding. From first song to last song the dance floor was packed. Glynn and the guys read our crowd so well and you know you made the right choice when your guests are shouting" One more song!!" We have had so much feedback from our guests saying how brilliant the band were and we couldn't agree more. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding a fantastic day. Susan and Derek 26th July at Ingliston country club Bishopton.

The Royales were outstanding, everyone at our wedding raved about them and weeks later we're still all raving about them. Phenomenal musicians and great song choices. Superb. Our dance floor was packed all night long and everyone had a ball, all down to The Royales.

Kingsmills Hotel, 03-Aug-13
Just wanted to say a massive 'thank you' to you and the rest of the guys, for coming up to Inverness on Saturday to play at Emma and Duncan's wedding. Sorry I never managed to thank you at the end of the night (got sidetracked and you were gone when I came back to the room) but Emma said she and Duncan spoke to you. Hope the journey wasn't too bad and your rooms were ok. EVERYONE was asking who the band were - they all said you sounded amazing and you played a good mix of tunes, which had our guests on the dancefloor from start to finish. You even had my husband (and Duncan's dad) up dancing, which he doesn't normally do - he said everytime he came into the room you were playing a song he liked! Will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Royales - in one word - BRILLIANT! Emma and Duncan couldn't have been happier with you guys - you helped finish off a perfect day.

I cannot stress enough how good this group was. Everyone at the wedding was talking about them for days after the wedding about what a great group they were. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone who was looking for a band.

Hi Glyn, Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for making our wedding reception such an amazing night! Not only were you guys outstanding at everything you sang, but you read the crowd so well and kept everyone dancing and having a ball the whole night! We have had so many compliments regarding yourselves and we couldn't have been happier. You also went above and beyond to learn the songs I had requested and you were fab at 'shake your tail feather' for my dad and I! We had such fun dancing to it! You really did make our night and I would recommend you again and again!

Everybody has commented at how brilliant you were. Dynamic Earth pointed out that our wedding was one of the only weddings they have had that the dance floor was full from the 1st song to the last song! We can't thank you enough for playing our first song live. It meant so much and it sounded amazing! You were absolutely fantastic and we'll no doubt see you again at one of your gigs in Edinburgh!

Lochside House Hotel, 08-Sep-12
We could not recommend The Royales any higher. We were slightly apprehensive about booking any band online that we hadn't seen live in person, but any fears disappeared within seconds of the band playing their opening song. From start to finish the dance floor was filled with both the younger and older guests, a great selection of songs were played and the band even let one particular guest from Ireland get up and sing his own rendition of Galway Girl. We found Glyn from the band a pleasure to deal with and he was extremely accommodating to any request we made, and the band in general all seem a great bunch of guys who were smiling throughout the night. Since we've returned from our honeymoon every single guest we've spoken to has commented on how unbelievable the band were, a lot have told us it's the best wedding they've ever been to and the music was a huge part of that. In summary if you want a band for your wedding that will get your guests up and dancing the entire night with a varied mix of songs played by talented musicians then book The Royales, you'll be glad you did within the first ten seconds of their performance.

inchyra grange hotel, 03-Aug-12
amazing band. we spent weeks researching bands and it realy paid of. the royales are amazing, they had the entire dance floor filled all night and they even put our names into some of the big songs which was a realy nice touch. their music selection was great and they adjusted it to how the crowd reacted. they have great voices and great stage presence. i have seen quite a few bands and these were by far the best. couldnt have asked for better. all our guests asked us what there names were as they would book them too.

The Royales played at our evening reception at our wedding and were brilliant. When trying to organise a million and one things on the run up to the wedding the music was never something we were worried about. Glynn and the boys were amazing on the night, playing music which suited all genres. Everyone attending the wedding has come back to us to comment on how good they were. Thank you very much for a great night guys!

They were excellent and exactly what we wanted and hoped for in our wedding band. Everyone commented on how good they were and they did very well in catering to all age ranges which must be difficult. They asked us if we had any special requests which was nice. They had lots of people up dancing and we know that everyone enjoyed listening to them so thank you so much for making our reception a brilliant one.

Great band, busy dancefloor all night. We had a large wedding, so they had to cater for many tastes and they did this very well. The Royales are a lovely group of guys, they made sure during the evening on several occassions that I was happy with the set they were playing. Ive been asked for their number several times since the wedding!

Such a cracking group of guys! The band really made the evening a great success and all of our guests loved the performance. The range of music was really well suited to our guests and got everyone up dancing. The Ceildh was a really good laugh- our dancing was rubbish, but the band were very patient with us!
Victoria Harwood, Blyth
Now that we are back from honeymoon wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for your fantastic performance at our wedding! You really got the party going and we had so many people comment on how much they enjoyed you. Sorry that they were a bit rowdy at times (especially during the ceilidh!) - we could see how hard you worked and you must have been exhausted by the end of the night. But you really were fantastic and really 'made' the recpetion. Thanks also for all your help in the run-up and for answering all of our questions so quickly!
