I would consider crashing other weddings where they were playing!
This wedding at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool was a night to remember. With live music from Funk Soul Family, our flagship party band, plus some very special guest performers, this was an incredible wedding that we were honoured to be part of.
We regularly get asked to play for wedding couples’ first dances, which is always a really special moment. To have your song, played live in a bespoke arrangement, as you dance with your favourite person surrounded by all your loved ones – that takes some beating. But when it came to Andy and Lou and their Liverpool wedding, they took things a step further. They asked if instead of a regular first dance they could join the wedding band and perform the song themselves!
So Lou grabbed an acoustic guitar, and Andy hopped onto the keyboard, and they sang All My Love by George Ezra. Funk Soul Family effectively became their backing band, which was a privilege because this wonderful wedding couple are fantastic musicians! After their performance, normal service resumed as our party band played a string of hits that kept Andy and Lou's wedding guests dancing for the entire night.
We’re Manchester based but always love playing at Liverpool weddings. The Titanic Hotel has a quirky industrial vibe that makes it uniquely beautiful as a wedding venue. The brilliant Mustard Yellow Photography were there grabbing some incredible images – always a pleasure to work with them!
Lou and Andy sent us this lovely review about our performance at the wedding:
Funk Soul Family were incredible. From our first email, to our meeting before the wedding right through to the final dance off they were a joy to work with and made it relaxed and easy. They created an unbelievable atmosphere and the way they transition between songs meant that the dance floor was never empty. They interacted with the guests just the right amount to work the crowd without it being cringey. One of our musician guests said it was the best gig he had been to all year. Their hits and runs were delightful musically! They were also so so friendly and even accommodated us doing a first song with them instead of a first dance. We couldn't recommend them highly enough... I would even consider crashing other weddings where they were playing just to have a great night dancing!! Thanks guys!
If you’ve got an idea for your wedding that’s a little bit crazy but just might work…drop us a message and we’ll see what we can do! We love taking on creative musical challenges, and will always do everything we can to make sure the live music at your wedding is perfect.
