    • Hi Laura,

      Just to say the band were absolutely superb on Saturday, great song choices and the dance floor was full all night. Everyone was loving it and we had so many compliments on their performance. Would highly recommend.

      Also in general the the day was fantastic start to finish and everything went smoothly. Can’t wait to get away now for some relaxation.

      Many thanks,

    • We would like to say a very big thank you to the fantastic Echo State who played at our wedding on Saturday, the variety of music the band played was excellent and the dance floor was full all night. All our guests commented on how great the band were and the band most definitely added to the magic of our special day. We would highly recommend you to all future bride and grooms! Lots of love Mr and Mrs Erskine!

    • We had Echo State playing at our wedding on 25th June and they were absolutely fantastic! They had everyone up dancing all night and even played a special request that I had on the night for the father/daughter dance. Joe was hilarious and kept people laughing all night. We really couldn't recommend them enough! Thanks Echo State!!

    • Would just like to send a huge thank you to Echo State for performing at our wedding on Friday! We have had loads of people asking for their contact details and have been sure to pass the information on. Everyone loved the selection of music and there is many a guest recovering from some dancing injuries - even the groom! Thanks again X

    • We would just like to say a huge thank you to the amazing Echo State, who played at our wedding on Saturday night. The dance floor was filled all night and I don't think there was one guest who wasn't raving about how amazing you guys were. Would highly recommend you to anyone looking for the perfect wedding band.
      Thank you so much again, you added to the fantastic memories of our wonderful day.
      Love Mr and Mrs Brown.




    This band has a colossal amount going on for such a small lineup! They have outstanding male and female vocals, drums, keys, guitar and bass along with 4-part harmonies! There's no other band on the scene that do what these guys do! Echo State is fronted by the well-known singer-songwriter Joe Gallacher, with a soulful yet rocky voice that leads the band through their monster set! These guys (and girl) are truly excellent in every way! 

    Joe's a fantastic singer and already had a great reputation in the industry before we hand picked three awesome musicians to create Echo State. Incredibly, in this band all four musicians sing, and you'll be blown away if you get the chance to book Echo State!
