We chat to Jack Brown of Pulse Function Band about how they can make the party happen on the dancefloor at wedding, from first dance to last…
Tell us about Pulse Function Band We are a 100% live five-piece with over 20 years of experience in playing at weddings. We don’t just turn up, plug in to the venue’s system and play – we bring all of our own high-standard equipment, giving us a professional sound and lighting system. Distance is no object either: even though we are based in the Scottish Borders, we’ll happily travel to the Central Belt.
What sets you apart from other wedding bands? We can cover the whole night’s entertainment in one fell swoop – we offer a live band, ceilidh and disco package. It’s rare to find a band that’ll do all of these. We are guaranteed to have the dancefloor jumping all night.
How does the evening entertainment typically run? First dance is often at 8pm, with the band playing till 8.45pm. (We can learn requests for first dances with plenty of notice too.)
At around 9pm, we’d kick off the ceilidh with us calling/showing how the dances are done (handy for non-Scottish guests). After an hour of ceilidh dancing, people want a rest and some buffet, so that’s when we’ll have the disco set-up ready to roll.
From 10pm til 12am/1am, we will up the ante with big-hitter floor-fillers like Mr Brightside, Sweet Caroline and All the Small Things, before wrapping up with the obligatory Runrig version of Loch Lomond.
