The Funk Works

The Funk Works are a commanding, charisma-packed 9-piece band, best known for belting out only the best pop, funk, disco, soul and Motown classics. All the classic party songs, delivered with a powerful punch!

The band's brilliant female lead vocalist somehow rises to the challenge of matching the pitch of a first-rate brass section complete with 2 trumpets, sax, and trombone. Keyboard, guitar, bass and drums complete the crowd-winning line-up. Just a few examples of what you can expect to hear include cracking covers of Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Bruno Mars, Corrine Bailey Rae, Amy Winehouse and Cee Lo Green.

The Funk Works pride themselves on the outstanding level of musicianship on offer, and in delivering the best possible show for each and every client. Previous reviews will tell you that you can expect the chant of "one last song" as their incredible sets draw to a close. Don't worry... this request has now become so regular that The Funk Works offer an additional 60-minute performance if booked in advance.

This tight-knit Birmingham based wedding band first discovered their calling at a Costa Coffee at the University of Birmingham where many of the members met. They've been loving every moment of performing together ever since, racking up several years of experience performing at both intimate and seriously sizeable venues.

It's easy to picture The Funk Works astonishing audiences at those big company dos, and their travels have seen them perform at prestigious events like the National Youth Orchestra, London 2012 Olympics and Edgbaston Cricket Ground. Previous corporate clients include BP, The Marriot Group, and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

The Funk Works still adore a good wedding or party, and are happy to learn and perform not 1, not 2, but 3 songs of your choice! That's a lot of homework, but they love what they do and never tire of that feeling they have helped make your day spectacular. They will tailor their line up, and even their outfits, to suit your event.

A really popular option is to have their jazz quartet set during the wedding breakfast or guests' arrival, and then have the 9-piece soul and Motown band for the evening wedding reception.

The Funk Works provide their own PAT tested professional PA system, lighting if required, and are happy to travel nationwide.

"The Funk Works 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."
Antonia and Toby - Wedding - Cambridgeshire
"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 The Funk Works 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!!"
Natalie - Party Ball - Birmingham
"We recently hired The Funk Works 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."
Emily and Owen - Wedding - Warwick
