As one half of a Scottish wedding band, The Stewart Reid Band, I am always keen to find out the most popular ballads our brides & grooms are picking for their 1st dance.
As a wedding band in Scotland, we must always offer the best possible set-list to our potential customers. And that means learning the songs people want to hear.
So, in 2012, the most requested 1st dance so far is (drumroll please) ...
I won't give up by Jason Mraz
Since learning the song in April, we've been asked to perform it as a 1st dance 5 times & as a 2nd dance 3 times . Easily the most requested song in our set.
Other songs from our set-list that are proving popular are...
Just the way you are - Bruno Mars
Amazed - Lonestar ( still going strong after 12 years!)
Hold on - Michael Buble
I'm yours - Jason Mraz
Our next song we've been asked to learn is an old Maroon 5 number called "She will be loved" so looking forward to performing that.
If any brides or grooms are reading this please let us know what your 1st dance is / was by commenting on this post.
Til next time
