WOW WOW WOW!
WOW WOW WOW! What an amazing band and wonderful people! The Apollos were absolutely brilliant at our wedding day! They were so easy to communicate with in the run up to our big day, helpful at all times! The Apollos played throughout our ceremony and reception which was an excellent choice! They learned my favourite song from Guns and Roses just to play during the ceremony. It brought tears and joy to my heart! They also did a fantastic job of learning our first dance song! 😊 All the guests loved them from the beginning and the evening reception hasn’t even started that time! They were amazing with the choice and type of music they played meeting with everyone’s expectations! It was an unusually hot day for Scotland (26degree and sunshine) but they still managed to keep the dance floor busy! They talked through the steps easy to follow for the ceilidh and all Hungarians had a blast dancing! We would definitely recommend The Apollos to future brides and grooms!! Thank you for making our day so special! ❤️

Absolutely amazing!
Absolutely amazing! The Apollos had our dance floor jumping all night and all our guests have been raving about them. They learnt our first dance for us and it was sung beautifully. The communication running up to the wedding was also great, Fiona gave some advice as she had also recently been married. The Apollos played for us until 1am and booking them was the best decision, they are a brilliant band and Fiona is an amazing singer! Thank you guys! xx ps if you ever record cant see straight let us know!!

Fantastic, Friendly, Bubbly
The band were absolutely fantastic,friendly, bubbly & exactly what we wanted for our big day. They performed our first 2 songs perfectly, You're my best friend by Queen & Edge of seventeen by Stevie Nicks & mixed it up by playing some ceilidh dancing. The Apollos got so many compliments by guests at the end of the night as they played a mixture of songs to keep every age group happy. It was a pleasure of having them at our wedding & I would not hesitate having them at any other function we may have.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Energetic, creative, friendly, funky, celebratory

What about your business are you most proud of?

We love that we've been able to establish a wedding band with our best friends and spend every week setting off to another gorgeous venue together to make a couples' dream wedding band a reality.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always have flip flops handy next to the dancefloor!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

We love it when a couple pick a first dance song that's unique and special to them. And it's always fun when they ask a talented family member to perform it with us!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We'll contact you upon receiving your enquiry to ask a few basic questions and then 3 months before to get your first dance, your setlist preferences and anything else you require! Happy to have a phone/video call as well.

What makes a romantic first dance?

A song that's special to the both of you!

What is your number one floor-filler?

It has to be 'Man! I Feel Like A Woman' by Shania Twain

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

I think we'd all have loved to be in Jamiroquai. Or Chic!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

We share a lot of the same tastes, but part of the joy of our band is that we all like slightly different music and introduce it to each other! Our tastes include classic bands Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Queen, Genesis & Pink Floyd but also more obscure bands like Parcels, Snarky Puppy, Justice, Aesop Rock, Jamiroquai, Run The Jewels... the list is endless!
