Big Vern ‘n’ the Shootahs are a rockin’ nine piece soul band from Glasgow, Scotland playing well known covers with the twist of a soul/funk vibe.  We are a bunch of friends who perform music in our spare time and who have grown from a one off show for a dear friend, to becoming the most sought after band for events and parties in the country.

We don’t take ourselves too seriously which certainly comes across in our live shows – we are not shy – all accomplished musicians collectively having fun and gettin’ on with it – we aim to please and don’t miss and hit the wall – we strive to be live and love the vibe that an audience enjoying themselves throws back at us…….if you simply want a ‘live jukebox’ then you should really be looking elsewhere……but, if you are looking for a band to set your event on fire then……Big Vern n the Shootahs are your boys.


Big Vern n the Shootahs (BVATS) have been together since 1989 and are still enjoying entertaining audiences, be it at huge events like the World Cup celebrations at Glasgow Green, internationally attended functions in London, expatriate events in the Far East or small intimate gatherings for special memories.

We pride ourselves on bringing all the fun of the Big Vern ‘circus’ 100% to town, be it at our own advertised shows, corporate functions, weddings, car launches, open air festivals, local and national radio and TV events, or many other bespoke events which we have enjoyed being a part of all over the UK.
