“The Big Shoogle are the antidote to clapped out ceilidh bands, dodgy dance bands and wonky wedding bands across the UK.”
A ceilidh band and then some, The Big Shoogle are like a cross between The Rolling Stones and William Wallace – electrifying traditional Scottish music as played by Jimi Hendrix, and then there are the covers of great pop and rock songs just in case you can’t handle a full on Big Shoogle ceilidh.
Big Shoogle contains three of the finest musicians in the country – recognised by everyone in the industry as ‘the band to beat’, and with a track record and reputation other ceilidh bands can only dream about.
We can’t really prepare you for a Big Shoogle show – if you want the very best in ceilidh then look no further, if you want a wild party night with a Scottish flavour anywhere in the world, get in touch. If you’re getting married and want one of the most professional and memorable bands it’s possible to have, call us.
This band has entertained celebrities, politicians, and plumbers like they’ve never been entertained before (and plumbers know how to party!) so take a deep breath and try this band on for size – you’ll know when you’ve been Shoogled.
While our standard lineup is the 3 piece, we also regularly perform with a guest fiddle player, and can easily provide this 4 piece lineup on request.
While the wide tuning of an accordion is enough to make most mortals weep, this super hero thrives on the dissonance created by the wildest of reeds, the wonkiest of time signatures…
More is know of the myth than the man. An internet search will result in thousands of questions, but few answers. There is footage, but it is hard to seperate the real from the fake. I want to believe…
Drummer for The Big Shoogle & Last Tram Tae Auchenshuggle ceilidh band, Gordon has played in a variety of bands, appearing on numerous radio sessions – from the John Peel Sessions to Radio One’s Rock Show. And when on tour with Runrig has on occasion stepped in for Ian Bayne on drums.
