The dance floor was packed from start to finish
Charlie and the Funk Factory recently played at our wedding. They performed acoustic songs during our ceremony, jazz music during the drinks reception and finished the night off with three evening sets of funk music. We can not recommend Charlie and the band more highly! Charlie was an absolute pleasure to deal with - when we dreamt up our wedding music, we never actually imagined it would ever be a reality, but Charlie worked with us closely to ensure our ceremony music, first dance and other surprises along the way were not only personal but perfectly executed. The dance floor was packed from start to finish, with all of our guests left chanting for more. We can only hope you enjoyed the wedding as much as we did, you truly made it such a special and memorable occasion. Thank you!

30th Birthday Party
Musically they were very together, always in sync and kept up a really good energy that got everyone up and dancing. Charlie and the Funk Factory took to the tracks that we requested like they'd always known them; they were involved and happy to help throughout the event. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Summer Ball
Finding great entertainment for my event (a student ball) seemed a little daunting at first but I needn’t have worried at all: Charlie was fantastic, reliable, accommodating and really helped make sure no detail was overlooked. From the very first email I felt sure that Charlie and the Funk Factory were going to be a fantastic addition to the ball. I was right - the band really was the highlight of our event! All of our guests commented on how fantastic they were and the atmosphere in the venue completely elevated during their sets. The entire band was a pleasure to deal with, I certainly hope they’ll come back and perform for us again!!

'We cannot recommend the band more highly'
Charlie and the Funk Factory were just amazing at our wedding - the dance floor was packed and the fact that everyone kept calling for ‘one more song!’ at the end of the night says it all - nobody wanted their second set to end! It was so great to have them performing our first dance song for us too and it really made it such a special and memorable occasion. Thank you guys for being utterly brilliant! If you’re looking for a true funk band (and a lovely bunch of people too!), look no further. We cannot recommend Charlie and the band more highly.

'The vocals and musicianship were excellent'
"We recently hired Charlie and the Funk Factory to play at our wedding. They played an acoustic set and a full band set later in the evening. Both were superb. They were really lively, the vocals and musicianship were excellent, and they judged the crowd really well. We had so many comments afterwards from guests about how great they were, and we also got the impression the band really enjoyed being there playing too. Would highly recommend."

We'd recommend them to anyone!
Thank you so much to Charlie and the Funk Factory for making our wedding day so special! The band were so flexible, performing a host of requests for our ceremony as well as for our first dance, which we never thought we’d have live music for but it was no trouble for them! We’d recommend them to anyone!

What about your business are you most proud of?

We pride ourselves on the outstanding level of musicianship we have to offer, featuring some of the UK’s top function singers alongside our first-rate brass section, so you can realise your dream evening with a bespoke entertainment package. The versatility of our musicians enables us to offer smaller acoustic groups and jazz ensembles for drinks receptions and dinners, prior to our show-stopping full lineup, and we are fully committed to tailoring our act to each individual client’s needs.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Ultimately, your first dance is an opportunity for the pair of you to enjoy a perfect moment together, accompanied by a soundtrack you can relax and be yourselves to. You may already have ‘Your Song’ lined up; whether that’s literally “Your Song” by Elton John, a classic Adele ballad, or perhaps “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Frankie Valli. Maybe you met on an Ibiza dancefloor dancing to ‘Darude Sandstorm’ and would love to dance to that but you're not sure how well it would go down with the grandparents... Our advise is go with what you love - there is no wrong answer here.
