D.J.

I would like to say thank you to everyone at Buena Vista Entertainments for helping us to have such a brilliant wedding. Graeme was super and his music was amazing, we all had a brilliant night and danced until the wee small hours. Our guests thoroughly loved the choice of music and commented all through the night. Thank you all again for being so brilliant. Helen and Steven Bonnar 25 July 2014

D.J.

Hi Gus, Ross and I just wanted to send an email to thank you again for last night. The tunes were brilliant and we (and all our guests) had a great time! You really made sure that everyone was kept up dancing all night. We would (and will) definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ :-) Kat and Ross. 19 July 2014

D.J.

Gus was absolutely amazing! We had such a great time which ended in a rave involving glow sticks!! Our guests were loving it! He did so well in reading the reaction from the crowd and playing to our taste (as questionable as that taste may be!). He was so well dressed that we mistook him for one of our guests! All our guests have been talking about how great he was at getting the party going. Really can't thank him enough. I'm more than happy for my testimonial to be used to endorse Gus. Thanks again for everything. Lisa. 18 July 2014

D.J. & ceilidh band

Can you please pass on a huge thank you to Graeme and ceilidh band 4 for making David's 50th party go with a swing on Saturday night at the Waterloo apex. Warm regards, Liz. 14.06.14

D.J.

D.J. Alex was absolutely superb and all we have had is positive feedback. The dance floor was packed and the atmosphere was great. Please pass on my thanks. Thanks again. Millar. 14 June 2014

Face artists and balloon modeller

Everyone was fantastic thanks, I think they were completely mobbed! It was a good atmosphere, and were definitely needed, so thank you again for arranging them on such short notice! We will definitely be looking to use your services again. All the Best, Althea, Murrayfield Experience for the One Direction concert. 03 June 2014

Choir

I cannot put into words right now just how incredible the choir was!!!! I'm overwhelmed still. Could not of asked for more! They made me the happiest bride!!! Everyone has commented on how much they enjoyed the songs and I know you will have a few requests for them again from future brides!! Thank you so so so much again, just fabulous!!!! Alyson. 31 May 2014

D.J.

We had an amazing day and night. Alan and Cammy played a huge part in that. We can only thank you guys from the bottom our hearts and we would recommend your services any time.... a first class service! Thanks again. Alan and Angela. 31 May 2014

D.J.

Thanks so so much for all your help in making our wedding such a brilliant event! Gus was absolutely amazing and we had such a brilliant time and the music was exactly what we wanted. Loads of great feedback from all our friends! Emma. 24 May 2014

D.J.

Keith was great. Played all the songs we wanted to hear. Accommodated others on the night and helped to make it a great night that I will remember. Alex. 10 May 2014

Ceilidh band

I want to thank you and ceilidh band 2 for an excellent performance on the night who more than lived up to our expectations. They played very musically and not at all raucously (as some of our members had feared); they mixed instrumentals with dances; and Caroline performed one beautiful song (she'd been a bit hesitant when I asked her to do so earlier, but I think she should be encouraged to do so more often). Caroline was an excellent caller and drew many of our often quite elderly members to the dance floor. All in all it was a very good evening, which was enjoyed by everybody who attended. Please therefore pass on our appreciation to "Ceilidh Band 2". We'd certainly give them an excellent reference, if ever requested. With best regards. Robert. 10 May 2014

D.J.

Great evening had by all. Graeme was excellent. Would def recommend to others. Thanks again. Ross and Fiona Cunningham. 19 April 2014

The Soul Kings

The Soul Kings performed at our wedding in Hilcroft Hotel, Whitburn, Friday 18 April and I just wanted to thank you all for a great night. Everyone has commented on how good you were and I really believe it made our wedding! We have also been asked by several people for your contact details which I have passed on. I'd also like you to pass our thanks on to Chris who dj'd that night. He was absolutely brilliant and managed to play the majority of the list we had produced and many more favourites. Thanks again for a great night. Jane Graham

D.J.

We were really pleased to have Alan DJ for us. Alan played all the songs we had selected and added in other tracks that got people moving on the dance floor. He was really friendly and accommodating and everyone had a great time. He was good fun and nothing was too much trouble! The booking process was really straight forward and selecting the first dance, last dance and other tracks we wanted worked really well. Thanks for arranging this, it is much appreciated. Jacquie. 12 April 2014

Ceilidh band

I found this whole process very straight forward and the website made it easy to find what I was looking for. They (ceilidh band 1) were brilliant, the ceilidh went down really well with my guests who have commented on how muched they enjoyed it; plus all the songs played. I would just like to thank you and them for being part of making my day amazing. Jenna. 29 March 2014

D.J.

Graeme was brilliant - he stepped in at the last minute and was fully up to speed with the venue and our songlist, he set up his system really well into Prestonfield House and his selection of songs and call-outs to everyone were spot on. He had everyone on the dance floor and kept going till 1am which was much appreciated. We'd happily recommend him, and thank you as well. Jonathan. 28 March 2014

D.J.

We had a great time on Friday at our wedding! You were really great and prompt at getting us back and advising us for our booking! D.J. Alan was great on Friday, really nice guy, obliging and the dance floor was never empty! Our friends have described it as ' a rave in the cave' We had a great night and would recommend to anyone to book through Buena Vista Entertainments! Alexis & Colin. 04 April 2014

Covers band

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Band L for the great performances they gave us on Saturday night, very professional throughout the whole of the evening. It was great to see everyone up dancing and enjoying the music, they all looked to be enjoying themselves and I have had positive feedback with regards to the band; even got “The Best Party Ever” from one guest! 25 January 2014

Covers band

Thought I would let you know that Band L were amazing last night, nothing but positive feedback from everyone at the party. Matt Rowley. 27 December 2013

Ceilidh band

The feedback is that they (ceilidh band 1) were amazing! 13 December 2013

D.J.

We had a great time on Friday thanks and Keith, was fab! Leesa. 13 December 2013

D.J./musician

We have to say that D.J. Alex was absolutely fabulous. The dance floor was filled the whole night and everyone commented on how brilliant he was playing and singing some absolute classics. Myself and my bridesmaid loved his version of 'Blurred Lines'!. He is most definitely a crowd pleaser and a very nice down to earth guy. We would have no hesitation in using DJ Alex again or recommending him to anyone who wanted a good party. The whole booking process was very easy to use and your customer service is excellent, including your surprise visit! I am still smiling at the memories! Susan & Alan Berwick. 30 November 2013

D.J.

Really good nite, hats off to Graeme, top man. John. 9 November 2013

D.J. & Harp player

Graham and I just wanted to thank both Gus and Alex for all their help with our wedding. They were both fantastic.

Alex was amazing; she provided suggestions for the ceremony music and got to know what we were looking for and her recommendations were great. On the day she was so accommodating even with a delay due to poor weather. So many off our guests commented on how good she was. We would highly recommend Alex to anyone and were very impressed. Gus was fantastic, Graham and I were concerned that we had a variety of different age groups that would be hard to cater for but Gus got everyone on the dance floor and everyone having fun. Gus knows his music very well and was a great DJ. One of the best wedding DJs I have seen. Gus really made the evening run smoothly and would happily recommend him to anyone. Please pass our thanks to Gus and Alex. Thank you too Dougie for your help. We really appreciated it. 6 October 2013

D.J.

D.J. Alan was brilliant at Aimée and Nik's wedding at the Rowantree. After directing the wedding, it was a great relief to be able to leave everything to him and he kept the dance floor lively all evening. It was such fun. Anne (mother of the bride). 28 September 2013

D.J.

I just wanted to let you know that our wedding on Saturday was just perfect, and that Nick was great! All the guests on Sunday said that they had a perfect party, and never had that much fun before at a wedding. Thanks! Marta & Maurizio 28 September 2013

D.J.

We recently held our wedding reception at The Caves in Edinburgh and we booked Gus as our D.J. following our band. Our band had brought everyone on to the dance floor and when Gus started nobody left it! Gus captured the fun party mood of the evening and continued to play music that was exactly as we requested and loved by our wedding guests! Alongside this, I have found Gus and Buena Vista Entertainments a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend their services. Becky. 20 September 2013

D.J./Musician

I would like to start by saying that Alex was absolutely amazing!! We had no idea that he played live along to most of the tracks he was playing.... Absolutely unbelievable and so talented! All our guests loved him and I would not hesitate in recommending him. He fulfilled everything we asked for and then exceeded those expectations, absolutely fantastic. All I ask is that you pass on our heartfelt gratitude for helping to make our day so special. Jennifer & Phil Webster. 27 July 2013

D.J.

Pete, we just wanted to say thank you very much for being the DJ at our wedding. Loads of our guests commented how fantastic you were. Thanks for managing all our entertainment and integrating the French music. A big thank you also for speaking French, it was very much appreciated :-) Amanda & Vince. 13 July 2013

D.J.

Just wanted to send a quick email before setting out on our honeymoon to say how much we enjoyed having Nick as our wedding DJ. Everyone commented on how fantastic the music was, catering to quite a vast age range! He arrived punctually, set up really quickly and compered our evening brilliantly. He had a fantastic sense of humour and was more than happy to play requests as the evening progressed. I think the fact that our huge dancefloor was packed the whole evening is testimony to how much our guests enjoyed the music and our evening. The ceilidh music went down a storm too!!! Thank you so much for making our wedding so special! Pauline and David Ross. 13 July 2013

D.J.

The D.J. (Pete) was amazing! Chelsea & Kevin. 7 July 2013

D.J.

Thanks it was a fantastic night -Alan did an amazing job with the music - the youngsters (and not so young) danced all night. Catrina. 5 July 2013

Gameshow

When we decided to do Steve Lindsay's Amalgameation, we knew it would be a great time for everyone. But the night itself was phenomenal and vastly surpassed all of our expectations. When we walked in, the room looked great – all the kit and sound effects that the lovely Martin did really added to the ambiance and Yasmin was the ideal “lovely assistant”. The game and questions were perfectly pitched to a very mixed crowd, ensuring everyone knew an answer, or at least had a fair chance of knowing an answer (like the morse-code S.O.S. of the Titanic!). The way you managed our rowdy bunch and at the same time involved our little niece, while keeping things moving and maintaining the extremely high fun level, was beyond impressive. I have not seen our family and friends laugh that hard, for that long, in ages - we all thought our cheeks were going to fall off! Everyone was talking about it for the rest of the night and the next day as well. We cannot thank you, Martin and Yasmin enough. With such a small number of people, the entertainment can make or break a wedding’s fun-factor and ours, thanks to you guys, was off the charts!!! Kelli Wiersema 20 June 2013

D.J.

Graeme, we can not praise him enough. He was fantastic. So flexible on the day and accomodating right up to the last minute with my requests. He was also great fun on the evening and played superb music. We would definitely recommend him and your company to anyone that we know is looking for a DJ. The booking process was flawless and certainly removed any stress from the situation. Alison & Walter. 15 June 2013

D.J.

Ally and I both had a fantastic day! We found the service offered by Buena Vista Entertainment to be first class, and we have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Grant was wonderful on the day, coping with many random requests. Please thank him from us - we were extremely happy with his DJ'ing !!! Gill and Ally. 02 June 2013

Piper and magician

We didn’t get to see the Magician as he was performing whilst we were off having our photos taken, but by all accounts he was very good. The piper was AMAZING!! He really made the day, he was absolutely brilliant, we were totally surprised by how involved he got, he did a great little speech when he piped us into the room for dinner. Everyone commented on how good he was. Jo Heys. 31 May 2013

D.J.

Alan was absolutely brilliant we couldn't have asked for better so thank you very much for providing such a great service. You've been a great help to us in the run-up to the big day and made everything very easy for us. Thanks so much again and we'll definitely be recommending your company to friends and family. Thanks again. Elaine and Ryan Simpson. 31 May 2013

D.J.

Many thanks for all you assistance and Graeme was fantastic!! We had a truly amazing day!! Thanks again. Fiona & Neil. 25 May 2013

D.J.

On behalf of myself and Dean, please pass a massive thank you on to Pete. He did a wonderful job on Friday night. So many people commented on how good the music was. I found dealing with Buena Vista Entertainments great. Everything was seamless, from booking right up until the final song on Friday night. I'll definitely be recommending you in the future. 24 May 2013

M.C.

Hello Richard. We had an amazing day, thank you so much for helping to make it special for us. The guests were so impressed with everything. We have just finished packing and relaxing now :-). Kind regards, Jill and Mike. 11 May 2013

D.J.

Alan, a shockingly late THANK YOU for the most fantastic entertainment you provided at our wedding on 27th April. We can't tell you how much we appreciate you playing EVERYTHING that we asked for, it made for the most perfect night and the only complaints were from the auld y'uns whose knees didn't permit them onto the dance floor, that we spent the entire night on the dance floor!!! Your professionalism throughout the booking and on the night was exceptional. We have no hesitation in providing a testimonial and recommending you to anyone who isn't afraid to get down and disco. Many, many thanks for making our special day as special as it could be. Susan and Kenneth 27 April 2013

D.J.

Can you also pass on our thank you's to D.J. Pete, he was great and kept making sure everything was ok. Mr. & Mrs Fowler. 6 April 2013

Gameshow

All of the Steve Lindsay's Amalgameation, team were excellent and struck the right balance between entertaining both the children and adults. They were also fantastic in their interactions with the kids. We were really impressed by both Sarah and Dougie. We were also surprised at the subtle points picked up and used during the event following our very brief conversation. Dougie was amazing as the host and was the star of the evening - everyone has commented on what a great job he did and how he managed the proceedings." David Meikle 04 April 2013

Just For Kids D.J.

I'm sorry for this late reply but I just wanted to let you know what a great disco party Paul did for my daughter in March. We very very impressed. The party was the talk of the school for a week following and I hear other kids are begging their parents for the same. Please extend my thanks to Paul. Hazel Munro. 8 March 2013

D.J.

Buena Vista catered to my every OCD whim and I am eternally grateful to Dougie and Alan for their patience with my never ending playlist! The music made my party!Thanx guys and see you at my 50th!!!8 March 2013

D.J.and Band

Just wanted to say thank you to Electric Dreams and Gus for the great performances they gave us on Saturday night, very professional throughout the whole of the evening, Gus is very helpful. It was great to see everyone up dancing and enjoying the music, they all looked to be enjoying themselves. Thanks again for all your help with the organisation and I hope we can get something in place for the next party. The last two years have been a great success with the band choices. Look forward again to your suggestions.19 January 2013

D.J., Caricaturist & string quartet

Thank again to yourself, D.J. Keith, our caricaturist/silhouette cutter and the Buena Vista String quartet. I thought everyone did a fabulous job so please pass on my thank you to each and every one of them. Our carictaurist was such a lovely chap and I think managed to capture just about everyone on the night. He was simply perfect for our event, he mingled beautifully with the crowd, wasn’t overly pushy and due to the speed in which he creates the images, it was painless and seamless. Everyone said how friendly, efficient and professional he was.

Keith was his usual jolly self. The dance floor the dancing soon picked up and Keith gauged the mood wonderfully.

The quartet were also wonderful, sounded amazing and added a touch of glamour to our festivities.

I will be recommending each and every one of them to friends and colleagues. Thanks again. Debbie. 22 December 2012

D.J.

I would like to place on record our sincere thanks to you and Gus for your help in making the evening such a success. It’s not always easy to judge the crowd and get the music right but Gus made sure the whole crowd were up dancing, he was incredibly helpful with all our party games and entertainment, and great at getting the equipment set up in good time. We’ll be back in touch next year. 15 December 2012

Guitarist

We had a wonderful day, Ilona was amazing! Thanks so much. You were so good and you really contributed to making our day so special - can't thank you enough! 15 December 2012

D.J.

Just wanted to say a huge big thank you for the fantastic music on Friday night! It was just the perfect mix and everyone was raving about it! Gus 7 December 2012

D.J.

Thanks again for the help last night with the Heineken sales team event.The guests had a great night! D.J. Grant, 20 November 2012

D.J.

Just wanted to say how brilliant D.J. Pete was yesterday at our disco. Kids and parents loved him - he really kept the party going. We will be recommending him and your company to others. 26 October 2012

Guitar & violin duo

Robert & Katherine (from the band) did an excellent job thank you and the booking process was fine and we had no issues. 20 October 2012

Magician and Band

A very big thank you for providing some great entertainment on Friday. From the ones I saw, Richard's tricks were astonishing and left everyone amazed. Electric Dreams really made the party get started. They were the perfect band for this occasion and the majority of our crowd seemed to like them and enjoy the music (of course there will always be a few who don't like 'loud' music but I never received any negative comments from anyone). They were very accomplished musicians and vocals were excellent and would highly recommend them, and Richard. I believe a few people left asking for details of the band.19 October 2012

D.J.

We really enjoyed the entertainment provided by Pete, he got everyone up dancing and played all the music we and our guests asked for. Please pass on our thanks to him. I found it really sraight forward to book with you and would recomend you to others. 6 October 2012

D.J.

Keith was quite honestly outstanding! So many guests commented on how great the music was. So grateful you recommended Keith, and I'd appreciate if you could pass on a massive thank you. 6 October 2012

M.C.

Fiona and I would just like to express our sincere thanks for the excellent job that Richard did for us at our wedding, it really was first class and helped the day go so smoothly – looking back we honestly don’t know how we would have coped without Richard's support and it was a great weight lifted off my shoulders that someone was there early in the day to help me and all the arrangements. Richard also added such a lot of nice touches that we noticed – always being there to help out or to attend to things and having two glasses of champagne ready. So a big thanks to Richard for an excellent job well done and also to Dougie for introducing us to his services. 29 September 2012

D.J.

Paul was absolutely first class on the night! He was such a nice chap and had the dance floor full all night. We all had such a good time and have been telling everyone about it ever since. Thanks so much guys! 5 October 2012

Covers Band

Our Friday evening went very well and this night in The Caves has been one of the best of our stay.The guests loved the band (band H), they were up dancing as soon as they were on. 5 October 2012

D.J.

Graeme, thanks for DJ’ing at my party at the Caves on Friday. Superb event really enjoyed by everyone who was there. The selection of music was spot on! 28 September 2012

Ceilidh band

They are the best ceilidh band (ceilidh band 1) we have ever experienced; fun and easy dance calling with a fantastic sound. The pipes and whistle with the DJ beat in the background...awesome! All our guests keeps on commenting on how great our entertainment was!! 15 September 2012

Ceilidh band

Please pass on our thanks to the ceilidh band (ceilidh band 11) that played at our daughters wedding at The George last Saturday.They were excellent and very patient with the many people who had never been to a ceilidh before but were keen to join in! We have had lots of positive comments about the wedding, but the first thing everyone mentions is how good the band were, so do please thank them from us. 08 September 2012
