Wonderland is a boy/girl duo. Both are exceptional lead vocalists, plus Steve plays a mean electric guitar during most of the night along with backing tracks of the highest quality. Acoustic guitar is played during ballads such as “Caledonia” and some of the Scottish instrumentals feature a mandolin.
Yes. Please watch our live, online videos to see just some of what we can do. Plus, we play every weekend if you would like to see us perform live. Please get in touch to arrange a viewing at a suitable venue.
Distance really is no object. Most of our work is in the North of Scotland, where we are based.
Yes. Our line-up and PA allows us complete control over our volume level.
Our volume is always suitable for your guests and the room. Being a duo without live drums, we can play intimate hotel foyers and our state-of-the-art Bose™ PA system can cater for up to 400 people inside a marquee. We also carry a moving-head LED light show.
Not very much! The PA is very compact and the 2 of us can set up in the smallest of country house foyers. We also carry backdrops and extra sub-bass speakers to cater for village halls and marquees.
Hundreds! We haven’t missed 1 booking and have pleased every bride and groom. Please read a few of our testimonials.
Yes. We will happily send you a copy of our booking agreement to look over along with a no-obligation quote. Please send your details using our contact page.

Each event is priced individually depending on location and performance times, so please contact us with your type of event, date, venue, and times. For the smaller budget, Steve is also available as a solo act / DJ.
We will send you 2 copies of our booking agreement. Please sign both and return 1 with a non-refundable deposit of £100. The balance is payable 1 month before the event.
Yes, via PayPal™. However, this is subject to 3% surcharge to cover their fees. We find the best payment methods are via bank transfer or cheque.
By all means, if we’re available, we will pencil you in. However, due to our high number of enquiries, we don’t hold dates - we have to operate on a first-come-first-served basis. The signed contract and £100 deposit secures the booking.

Yes. Wonderland are happy to learn any song for your first dance, provided you give us 2 months’ notice. Alternatively, we can play the original CD version for you if you’d prefer.
Yes, as long as we receive the total amount due 1 month before your event, you can pay us whatever – whenever. We will issue receipts for all payments.
Yes. We will play background music at a suitable volume for your guests during any breaks. We typically play Braveheart soundtrack as your evening guests arrive and some easy listening Michael Bublé during the buffet, plus full-on dance-volume mixes from the disco later in the evening. Classic Rock, dance, cheesy disco, indie, house, soul, jazz – tell us your preferences and let us read the crowd.
We arrive 1 hour before the agreed start time, unless circumstances allow us to set up in the afternoon.
Our standard performance time is from 8:00 pm until 12:30 am, playing continuous music all night between the band and disco. Other times can be negotiated. The band would take a maximum of 2 30-minute breaks – 1 for the buffet and 1 for the disco – again, this is negotiable depending on your requirements.
It can be done in 30 minutes but we give ourselves 1 hour. Please note that in certain venues where we are due to play in the same room as the meal has been served, we cannot start until the tables have been cleared. If the meal is running late, this would obviously have a knock-on effect. We will still finish at the agreed time.
Wonderland is a professional function band and has been playing wedding dances and other private functions since 1993. We have never missed a date! As part of a fully contracted service, we have public liability insurance and all of our equipment is PAT-tested for safety.
In the highly unlikely event of the band being unable to make the booking, a replacement band will be found for you. We have a large database of other professional duos.
Absolutely, we will reply within 24 hours. We also keep in touch leading up to your event. Additionally, we contact you 1 month beforehand to finalise all details such as times, requests, and the first dance.
YES - pints of WATER! As for the buffet, we will only partake if invited.
Smart shirt and dress/top, as if we were one of your guests. You won’t find any jeans or t-shirts, or anything over the top!
