This is what happens when the bride’s new father-in-law takes over the party!
Funk Soul Family, our flagship party band, specialises in turning good parties into great ones. We have a knack for getting everyone dancing, even that one aunt with a bad knee who usually sits in the corner all night. Whether it’s a wedding reception or a corporate function, Funk Soul Family are the ideal choice if you want your guests to be exhausted but happy at the end of the night. Here’s one of our favourite recent examples where the party has well and truly kicked off, at this incredible Cheshire wedding in May 2018!
We provided live music for the wedding's evening reception, and what started off as a regular set went absolutely wild! The wedding guests got more and more into the party spirit as the night went on, until…this happened. The father of the groom commandeered the mic (don’t worry, he asked nicely first!) and whipped the wedding guests up into an absolute frenzy. He gave shout-outs, he led chants, he directed dance routines, all with the wedding band ad-libbing background music behind him. And THEN he got the guests to lift the groom into a full crowd-surf. You have to see it to believe it.
The wedding was at Delamere Manor, an absolutely breathtaking Cheshire wedding venue that was once the home of…wait for it…GARY BARLOW HIMSELF. So it was an honour for our wedding band to be there performing our funk-infused pop covers at this epic wedding party. The place is absolutely enormous, capable of accommodating up to 500 guests. If this wedding was anything to go by, we can’t wait to play there again! Huge congratulations to Mr and Mrs Hawthorne, and well done to Mr Hawthorne senior. You’ve officially passed your audition to be an honorary member of Funk Soul Family.
