THEY are known simply as The Steve Ransome Band. The best known function band on the Scottish circuit.


But their humble origins in the North-east belie this remarkably talented, highly professional and polished line-up, who can proudly lay claim to having worked – and played – with some of the biggest names in show business, even performing for Royalty.


Between them, band leader Steve Ransome, lead singer/guitarist Dan McDonald, bass player/vocalist Ian Benzie and drummer Ian Brown, have rubbed shoulders with legendary artistes like Carlos Santana, King of the Blues BB King, Sir Cliff Richard, star of Broadway and the West End stage Elaine Paige, as well as working  with members of the Bay City Rollers,  Runrig,  Queen, Dire Straits and 10CC. 

These are the impressive fruits of combined global careers spanning decades.  So  it is little wonder then, that when it comes to corporate functions, weddings, and special attractions, prospective clients can count their event a success when they have the Steve Ransome Band on board.

Steve - who in a previous incarnation with ATV Studios, London - had a hand in producing no less than a dozen Number 1 hit records and 40 albums - is proud to present an eclectic repertoire to suit every musical taste. From Indie to Rock, Blues to Rock n’ Roll,  and Country & Western to Ceilidh tunes, the Steve Ransome Band has it all.

And if the bride or event co-ordinator require a special number not yet on one of the many set lists, then it can be included. “It’s all about ability, and flexibility,” said Steve. “We can deliver practically anything.”

“But don’t take our word for it,” added Steve. “Delighted feedback from scores of newlyweds, function planners and booking agents speak for themselves.”


CHECK OUT what the band’s clients have to say:


“The best wedding band ever! The Steve Ransome Band had everyone up and on their feet, boogie-ing the night away. Noone could sit down. They were absolutely fabulous.” Methlick bride Mhairi Finnie, a safety advisor for Total.


“One of the most experienced wedding and corporate function bands in Scotland. Superb at the ceilidh (including calling the dances),  as well as a huge playlist of party classics. The addition of Daniel's lead vocals and guitar to the band has given them a rocky, indie edge when needed.”  XS Promotions.


 “I wanted the best for my charity function – an outdoor music festival. The Steve Ransome band pulled in the punters and had them dancing the day away, and more importantly, had them happily parting with their cash. The band were without a shadow of a doubt the killer ingredient that ensured the absolute success of my event.” Sally McDonald, journalist and fundraiser.
