The Bag Rockers introduce a modern twist on traditional Scotland with their tongue-in-cheek, high energy performances, gaining them an outstanding reputation on the global entertainment circuit.
From Kiev to Kuala Lumpur and everywhere in between, The Bag Rockers have performed their polished show at events around the world to outstanding reviews. Even the most critical man on the planet, Simon Cowell, on hearing the band live, could not help but be impressed, describing them as ‘Great Ambassadors for Scotland’
The Bag Rockers comprise a core act of three musicians.
The act features the zany, pink mohawked frontman/guitarist Gregor “G-Man” James who, for four years, zoomed around the world as guitarist/frontman in the original line-up of The Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
Playing alongside Gregor are two highly experienced grade one professional pipers or alternatively one piper and one snare drummer. Where requested by our clients, completing the team and adding further Scottish spice to the shindig, are two female professional acrobatic dancers.
In their performances The Bag Rockers utilise elements of pre-recorded material to create the big sound of a full Celtic rock band but without the stress of a stage full of equipment. This makes them the ideal size to perform as the ‘featured act’ at awards ceremonies and other events where stage space can be at a premium. Three piece or five piece act, The Bag Rockers provide a bespoke show, tailored to the needs of your unique event.
In the case of weddings, in addition to the band’s normal set, the pipers provide all meet and greet duties and top table pipe-ins, etc. with the “G-Man” taking care of DJing, featuring all the modern wedding classics as well as an hilarious Ceilidh dance set complete with calling and demonstrations, ensuring a fantastic and unforgettable full day of high quality entertainment for all. Master of ceremonies duties can, if required, be provided to ensuring a complete turn-key wedding entertainment package.”

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
