Nick Bruce and His Blinding Lights

Nick Bruce and His Blinding Lights is a high-end Scottish showband playing funk/soul covers at weddings and functions, with a range of line-ups starting with our six-piece. Think big vocal harmonies, an awesome horn section, and eccentric mash-ups. We specialise in absolutely nailing party nights and wedding gigs, and in playing a highly bombastic and arguably too-long version of Purple Rain. 

Nick Bruce is a unique, charismatic and thoroughly unabashed stage performer, born in Buckie (50 miles east of Inverness) in 1982. Thoroughly enamoured with the music of Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson as a child, he moved to Glasgow in his late 20s, and promptly formed Nick Bruce and His Blinding Lights, which today is a function and wedding band playing funk, soul, disco and R&B, touring deep grooves, hot brass and killer backing vocals throughout the clubs and venues of Scotland. 

Each show is thoroughly improvisational and spontaneous, with fresh and funky arrangements and mash-ups of hits from the 60s through to present day. The band is a confidently rehearsed live band, with a fixed line-up of musicians - not a roster band with musicians meeting each other on the night and rehearsing during the soundcheck. We've got various line-ups starting with our six-piece (including two-piece horn section). All of the Blinding Lights' video and audio promos are recorded live.
