Reviews

Charlie & The Funk Factory

“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!”

Charlie & The Funk Factory

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.

Charlie & The Funk Factory

Charlie and the Funk Factory were absolutely fantastic at our annual ball! They were all so talented and we had so many great reviews of the music from all ages. They were also very professional and accommodating when organising everything and I would definitely recommend and book again!

Charlie & The Funk Factory

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!!

Charlie & The Funk Factory

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.
