"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!"
