Big Tuna has announced four autumn dates at two of their favourite venues over November and December. The band plays Edinburgh’s Finnegan’s Wake, easily one of the liveliest venues in Scotland, on 21 Nov and 12 Dec. They will also take the stage at Duchess of Kirkcaldy, a beautifully presented bistro bar in the Fife town, on 28 Nov and 19 Dec.
The band has been on a number of adventures playing throughout the length and breadth of Scotland this year, from Galashiels to Fraserburgh, Penicuik to Inverness and many points in between, often on wedding duty. As a top wedding band in Scotland Big Tuna spends much of the Spring and Summer months playing across the country at matrimonial gatherings. These final gigs of 2014 will see them finishing out the year closer to home.
Tuna guitarist and vocalist Neil Ferguson spoke of the band’s love of the venues, saying: “Finnegan’s Wake never disappoints. There is always a great crowd on hand who really appreciate live music. We always raise our game and play a great set, not hard to do when you’ve got a packed venue with 300 plus people dancing in unison!
“We love playing weddings throughout Scotland. As a great wedding band we tend to get round the country in the middle part of the year but it’s great to be playing closer to home to see the year out.
“The Duchess is also a great place to play. It’s a huge club which has been fitted out to the highest standard and is a real gem on the Fife nightlife scene. We especially love playing the Duchess near Christmas when the crowd is immaculately turned out and always up for hitting the dance floor.”
