Hell For Leather Ceilidh and Wedding Band in Scotland.

Hell for Leather Ceilidh and Wedding band

Hell For Leather is one of Scotland's hottest, and most exciting, Ceilidh or Wedding Band.

After The Magic Agency booked them in to play at the Six Nations Rugby Championship at Murrayfield, the feedback from the organisers was "We definitely want this band back again!".

Since then, they have appeared for The Magic Agency at venues, big and small, across Scotland - including Gleneagles Hotel, Our Dynamic Earth and The Lodge Loch Lomond.

They also met with great acclaim when entertaining the troops at The 40th Regiment Royal Artilley in North Yorkshire.

With a great mixture of Scottish music, Ceilidh dances, and rock/pop standards, Hell For Leather will have your guests dancing all evening and screaming for more at the end of the night.

Hell for Leather is a great band for Weddings, Ceilidhs, and Concerts. In fact, any event where you want foot-tappingly, great music.

The band can "call" all the dances and can provide a disco, if you require it.

Quite simply, if you see this band perform live, you will book them on the spot.


"Just a brief note to say that we were delighted with the band you provided for our wedding. They sounded fantastic, and were really helpful. The band we had originally booked let us down just 6 weeks before the wedding, so we booked Hell For Leather at the last minute but we needn't have worried, they were great and we had a lovely evening. Thanks for helping to make our special day that bit more special. Tracey and David."
Tracy and David Birkhead, Wedding.

"To The Magic Agency,
Hell for Leather were fabulous last night. A great mix of vocals and instruments, rock & ceilidh. All my guests were very impressed & full of compliments. Thanks for facilitating the booking. Kind Regards,"
James Loudon, Party.

"Hi Michael!
Mark and I just wanted to thank you and the band, Hell For Leather, for the best wedding party ever (April 19th, St Fillans)!!!
Our guests (old & young) just LOVED the band!! We even had them stay for an encore! Their set up time was not even noticed and everything appeared to flow seamlessly :) As the bride, of course, that aspect is very much appreciated!! The music was a perfect mix of scottish and non --- fantastic voice & sound -- The father of the groom is desperate for a CD!
Thanks again for all the back and forth emails and for your patience through all the what must be 'typical bride questions and concerns'! lol
Our wedding day was amazing! And we wanted to thank you for your part in it!
Christine and Mark Wilson wedding.

"Hi Michael,
It was just a quick email to say how absolutely delighted we were with Hell for Leather at our wedding on 29th April (Pollokshields Burgh Hall). I noticed you have testimonials on your page so if you needed our comments it was just to say your service has been absolutely excellent in providing the band, excellent communication, and band on the night were just absolutey brilliant, so many people have been asking who they were and saying what a fantastic time they had, many of the guests were from England so they were especially impressed!! We would recommend both Hell for Leather and Magic Agency to anyone and would not have a moment's hesitation in using you again."
Jo-Anne and Chris Fitzgerald, wedding.

"Just wanted to drop a quick line to to say thanks for the band you provided for Saturday night. Hell for Leather were excellent and commented on by many of the guests, who were present. Would you please pass my thanks on to the band."
Ken Barron, Glasgow Academical Sports Club.

"Hi Michael,

Kind regards,"

"You (Hell For Leather) made our night. Everyone had a great time. Thanks so much."
Douglas and Donna Forrest, wedding.

"Just a quick note to say thank you for sorting everything for our day out, it was perfect. I must make special mention for Hell for Leather, they were absolutely amazing, better than we could ever have hoped for. We had a number of guests who had never experienced a ceilidh before and were completely blown away by it, the band made the night. So much so that one of our friends who is to marry this year in London has decided to have a ceilidh as a result.
Ewan Wilson, wedding.

"Dear Michael,

"I just wanted to thank the band again for playing at our 25th Wedding Anniversary party. We had a brilliant night and look forward to hearing them again sometime soon. Thank you."
Lorna MacKellar..

"Dear Michael,
Just wanted to thank you for helping us book Hell for Leather for Matthew & Kaiyan's wedding on Saturday. We all had a fabulous day, and the evening entertainment provided by 'Hell for Leather' was perfect! Please be so kind as to pass on our thanks and appreciation to them for their great music - I lost count of the number of guests who asked where I managed to get hold of such a great band at such short notice. Matthew & Kaiyan were particularly appreciative of the band - it helped make their wedding day one they will have many happy memories of in years to come.".
Mrs. Sheena Geraghty, wedding..

"They were superb. Recommended the band to all our friends - absolutely fantastic night."
Gillian & David Christiansen, wedding..

"Fantastic evening - the band made the night."
Niomi and John Barton, wedding..

"The band were fantastic - great range of music."
Andrew Birt, retirement party..

"What a fantastic band yet again. Great band and great fun."
Janie and Liam McGranaghan, wedding..

"HFL really made the day with their varied selection of music and ability to read the crowd - the dancefloor wasn't empty all night."
Carol Boyd, Wedding in Glasgow..

"HFL is a band we would have back anytime."
Organisers, Six Nations Rugby Championships..

"Dear Michael, Just a note to say thank you very much for organising Hell For Leather & Beat the Cheat for our Wedding. The Band was absolutely out of this world and our guests were very impressed with the varied selection of music they played. In our opinion, Hell 4 Leather were the perfect band to have and we were delighted that they played rock music as well, as David and I thought that they were going to be doing ceildih music only. What made it especially great for us was seeing our guests continuing to enjoy themselves."
David & Vanessa Harte, wedding.

Help! How do I play these video or music files?


If you cannot see the flash movie above, then you first need to establish whether you can see any Flash Movies on your computer. Go to the Photobucket page here and see if any of the Flash Movies will play. If they do not, then you either need to enable Javascript in your Internet Browser or/or update your version of Adobe Flash Player by clicking here. This will take you to the Adobe downloads page where you can download the update for your operating system. It's only a one minute download and will enhance your viewing pleasure while on the internet.

However, try enabling Javascript in your Internet Browser first. If you have a POP UP BLOCKER enabled, then disable it. If Javascript is disabled, the web page will you a message saying that you do not have Flash installed or you need upgrade your version of Flash, which may not be true.

If you have Internet Explorer 7 and can't get any Flash Movies to work, then download and try the much superior web browser called Firefox here.


It's easy! Just double-click on the link and Windows Media Player (or whatever music player you have installed on your PC) should run and start playing the music file within a few seconds. Make sure you have your speakers plugged in and switched on.

If you have a Broadband internet connection (which is very fast), then the music files should play very smoothly straight away.

However, if you have a standard "Dialup" connection (your modem dials up to allow you to make the connection to the internet) then you will find the music file stops and starts all the time. This is because your PC music player is trying to stream or play the music as it downloads to your hard drive but your internet connection isn't fast enough to play the music smoothly.

If that is what is happening to you, then all you have to do is let the music stagger through once (it is downloading as this is happening) and then it will play at full speed after that. You can then listen to the the music file as many times as you want.

Alternatively, you can download the mp3 first and play it from your Hard Drive. To do this, just right-click on the mp3 link and select "Save target as" from the drop-down menu.

You can then save the mp3 file to your Desktop or any other folder of your choice.

When the mp3 file is completely downloaded, double-click on it and it will play immediately on Windows Media player or whatever music player you have installed.

We hope that has helped you. If not, just give us a ring on 0141 577 6604 and we'll talk you through it.

We're here to help you in any way we can.
