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!

'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!
