We wonder if you could please pass on our thanks to Roddy and the dancers for their fantastic performance last night at our Gala Dinner.  It was a truly spectacular show.  Many of the guests including the event sponsors have commented that the entertainment was outstanding
Sue Butler, COG International Conference
Entertainment at Ghillie Dhu was really good, and we had great feedback from the guests. They especially enjoyed the bagpipe band and choreographed dancing. The entertainment at Hopetoun was also well received and it seems people had a good time with the Scraggly Cats
Claire Rive, Thundermark
First of all I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team. It was an unforgettable day for all of us. Roddy and the other guys made a perfect job and we had great fun. Our guest were delighted about the games and I think for all of them the event was very special and they will talk about it for a long time
Thomas, Switzerland
Just a quick note to say thank you all so much for everything on Saturday. Everyone at the wedding was so impressed with the band (which I knew they would be) and kept commenting on how good the music was.
Wedding Client, Anstruther
Thank you for all your help in making this a successful trip. The (Reel Time folk) band was just the ticket – really fab!
Corporate Client
What can I say? The band were tremendous, Rest assured the Ceilidh was the highlight for many people, for 90%+ of people that would have been their first. For the handful of Scots who were well versed in Ceilidh’s the rocky edge that the band brought was something new and extremely well received. I can’t thank or recommend you guys enough.
The Botanic Gardens
Just a quick message to say thank you so much for Saturday! You guys are absolutely brilliant! I’ve had so many messages about how different you were and how great you played! An even bigger thank you for all of your obvious hard work for our 1st dance. It was absolutely out of this world! Exactly what I wanted. It was that good that even my snobby side of the family had a good rave 2 it.

“I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you very, very much to Roddy and the band, Iain and piper and Stef the DJ, and to you for pulling it all together! Everything was absolutely amazing – the band were superb and Iain was one of the highlights of our day – everyone loved him!!! Thank you again for your help Claire – you were amazing and I can’t thank you enough.
Wedding Client, The Hub, Edinburgh
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day so very special. We had a fabulous time and our guests were hugely impressed too.
Wedding Client, Royal Botanic Gardens
From the beginning, the guys (and girl) were exceptional and really helped make the day very special. During the evening, the band were fantastic and managed to get everyone up on the floor dancing despite the fact that very few knew the traditional ceilidh dances. They provided good humor and great music. It never occurred to me that I might see people dancing a Virginia Reel to Seven Nation Army!
Wedding Client, Atholl Palace
I just wanted to let you know about the phenomenal feedback we have had from our Friday night Burns Supper. Tartanium were amazing! They succeeded our expectations and I’m sure they will gain further bookings from their exposure to an oil and gas audience of operators, contractors and service companies. I have been inundated with voluntary feedback today and without exception it has all been outstanding.
Lesley-Anne Brodie, EIC Scotland (UK) Burns Night
We had an absolutely fantastic evening! The band were exceptional and we can’t thank them enough for their first class service on the night. They were all super nice and friendly, patient at 1am, surprised at the stage diving and they got it spot on! We were really pleased with the performance. But you deserve a big thank you for providing such a smooth seamless service before the event! I have voted for you in the VOWS. Best of luck!

Thank you so much for celebrating our wedding day with us at Dundas Castle. We had a magical day and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish; what a perfect start to married life we had and your presence was greatly appreciated. The music and band were fantastic and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it. Hope to hire you again some time!
Anne-Marie and Richard, Dundas Castle
A Huge thank you for our wedding reception. Everyone has been complimenting you saying how wonderful the band were. It meant so much not to have to worry about the music, to know we were in the safest hands.
Kathlyn and Martin Walsh , Wedding Clients
Hi, just a quick note to Roddy for being simply THE best piper at our wedding yesterday! Such a great guy, it was fantastic how he helped on the day and kept the guests entertained.

The ceilidh was absolutely AWESOME too, everyone had an amazing time – and lost a bit of weight too I think what with all the constant dancing! One of the guests has put a video of one of the dances on Facebook and it just reminded us of how fantastic a time everyone had. The young lady on the fiddle was getting raving reviews from guests this morning, we all thought she was fantastic! The speed her fingers danced on those strings was truly amazing!

Gail at Borthwick Castle was saying Roddy will hopefully be booked for new year – if this is the case then we will definitely be buying tickets!

Thanks again for making the night so perfect and memorable! We’ll recommend you to anyone and everyone!

Zoe & Chris Sherrington, Borthwick Castle
Not only are you a magnificent pipe major, but also the music package you put together for us was first class. Your four piece band and DJ really worked with the guests to give us all what we wanted on the day and right through the night. Our guests from Ireland were really impressed and kept telling us how brilliant they thought you all were (and indeed how great the whole wedding was). Thanks again for making it so easy and stress-free for us. We would recommend your very professional service to anyone who is serious about having fantastic music whatever their special occasion.
Laura & Declan McNulty, Wedding Clients
Please could you also pass on a special thank you to Roddy and his band as we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. People are still talking about Roddy and the band now!! The feedback from the delegates has been great; they all seemed to enjoy their stay at the hotel very much. The staff was always polite and happy to give assistance.
I have to say that my whole stay at the hotel was a very pleasurable one and it would be lovely to hold another event there or even visit out of work purposes

We wanted to thank you for joining us for our wedding and doing such a superb job on the day. You had been highly recommended to us by the events team at Dundas Castle and certainly lived up to your impressive reputation. You looked the part, played the part and kept everyone thoroughly entertained from start to the finish. So many of our guests have commented that you on the pipes and the Reel Time band were a real highlight of the day.
Whilst we thoroughly enjoy the pipes throughout the reception and the ceilidh, we must say that our personal highlight was your haggis address and playing from the top of the keep at the end of the night. These little extras gave our guests something different to other Scottish weddings they may have been to and helped make our wedding the special and amazing day we had hoped for
