The dance floor was buzzing all night
Katie and Andy’s wedding guests were treated to an epic set by our six-piece party band, Funk Soul Family. Everything from the first dance onwards was a huge success, and it was a pleasure to provide the live music for this amazing Manchester wedding!
Here’s the gorgeous couple’s first dance – It Had To Be You by Harry Connick Jr. With the addition of Camillo on trumpet, we created an authentic big band sound that lent a real vintage feel to the occasion.
There’s nothing like the challenge of a last-minute request! Just before we got up to play, the bridesmaids grabbed us and asked if there was any way we could play L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole as a father/daughter dance. We happily obliged, going straight into this classic off the back of the first dance.
Those two incredible tunes set the mood for the rest of the night, with the guests dancing all night to some of the best songs of the last 50 years. Here’s what the happy couple had to say about our performance at their Manchester wedding:
"We had Funk Soul Family play at our wedding reception and they were absolutely incredible and the perfect way to round off our wedding day. Every song they played was an absolute tune and the dance floor was buzzing all night. As a professional musician myself, the music was a high priority for me and these guys delivered everything and more than I could have possibly wished for. In the lead up to the wedding, Pete was extremely organised and wonderful in helping us plan the evening and the end result was the talk of the evening. I could not recommend them enough!"
