"David and guys were superb, from our first dance to their last number they had nearly everyone of our guests on the dance floor. The range and depth of their live sets was excellent and just encouraged you to dance and party to their music.
If you are looking for a band that can play current, contemporary and the all time classics then these guys nail it every time.
Mark & Jo"

"We had a fantastic evening having hired the Motherships to play at our wedding at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews. Mark was very responsive and friendly over email before the event and they accommodated our first dance request, creating a brilliant atmosphere when we wanted all of our family and friends to join us on the dance floor. Their performance during the night was excellent. They had great energy throughout and kept the dancefloor busy. They guided us through a celiedh despite many of our party never having done one before and it was one of the highlights of the night. If you want a fun, loud, rocky night then I'd highly recommend this group. Thank you guys!"
