We loved playing at Helen and Rich’s wedding at the fantastic shabby chic Owen House Wedding Barn, what an amazingly quirky venue for a wedding!! We were delighted to have Sue one of the bridesmaids join us for a tune and she absolutely smashed it!! Check out this top review we got from the guys…
“Wow! Where to start; they are a fantastic group of people and absolutely exceptional musician’s. I honestly can’t speak highly enough of them and would love to find an excuse to use them again. All of our guests thought they were incredible and they kept the dance floor jam packed all night. They are extremely accommodating as they learnt our first dance song; “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder AND one of our bridesmaids also sang a song alongside them; “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit, which was a brilliant surprise for all of our guests. They mixed new with old school, engaged with guests and even added a bit of humour. I’d recommend them to anyone and everyone. You honestly will not be happier if you select them to play at your wedding or party. Big love to Funk Soul Family!”

Who knew that you could have your wedding at a zoo?!? Well it turns out that Chester Zoo makes for a spectacular wedding venue as we found when celebrating with Sam and Chris.

“My husband and I would like to say a massive Thank You. You were the perfect band for our perfect day. Our guests have said how much they enjoyed you guys.

Osmaston Park provided an incredible setting for the wedding of Kelly and Simon! The weather was beautiful as guests disembarked from the classic red double decker bus to be greeted by the sounds of our awesome Manchester string quartet – Strings Attached. After the photos, we provided the tunes for the village fate style games including a coconut shy, bat the rat and hoopla! During our break we enjoyed some divine ice cream from Polly’s vintage ice cream parlour, served from an amazing VW ice cream van in the sunshine! After the meal and speeches Funk Soul Family kick started the party with some funky tunes and ended the night with some Indie Rock classics as requested, which went down an absolute storm! Check out these kind words from the bride and groom….
“Well what can we say! From our initial meeting with Pete and seeing Funk Soul Family perform live in Hale we instantly knew we had found the band for us!! We loved the individuality of both Strings Attached and Funk Soul Family and knew they were the something special we had been searching so long for!! From the moment of booking right through to the day before the wedding, Pete was so organised, flexible and accommodating in answering our questions and devising set lists that were individual to us.
We cannot begin to express just how amazing both bands were on the day – they were just perfect! All our guests commented on how amazing they were and are still talking about them now – weeks after the wedding!! I personally was dancing from start to finish on the evening and was so pleased we got to hear Strings Attached during our drinks reception as they really were so unique and sounded fantastic!!
All we can say is that we are so grateful to have had all you guys there as part of our day as you truly were incredible and some might say you made the day!! Thank you again for being so amazing!!

We ended the night with a fun mash up of Uptown Funk and the Fresh Prince Theme Tune! Check out this brilliant review we got from the guys….
“I was so looking forward to Funk Soul Family playing at my wedding and they did not disappoint. They were amazing and I loved the fact they learnt our first dance – ‘Best day of my life’ by the American Authors. They wanted to ensure we had a good party vibe to our evening celebrations. I loved the fact that they enjoy what they are doing and it shows in their performance. My guests loved the band and I was inundated with people telling me how awesome they were and asking where I found them. I would highly recommend them.”

Manchester wedding band’s Strings Attached and Funk Soul Family had an awesome time celebrating with Sara and Tom at their amazing teepee wedding! For the garden party drinks reception Strings Attached played a mixture of chilled tunes whilst guests enjoyed pimms and bubbly. We ended our set with a Disney medley which the guests heartily joined in with whilst having the group photo. After the brilliant speeches and incredible food during the afternoon the teepee was transformed into a festival style venue for the evening reception hosted by our six piece Funk Soul Family band. We kicked off the evening set with some Mumford and Sons for a raucous first dance which set the tone for the whole evening! The guests were absolutely brilliant and the bride and groom even partook in some crowd surfing!! Check out the fab review Sara and Tom sent us…
“Just a quick note to say a massive massive thank you to you and the team for being the best band we could have wished for yesterday! So many people commented on how great you were and that you were the best band they’d ever heard at a wedding. What was so lovely for me and Tom was the fact you totally got the kind of music we liked and it was so touching how many of the songs you learnt for us – having the whole wedding party singing Disney songs while doing the group shot was amazing and when spice girls came on later…well I couldn’t be happier!”

Funk Soul Family had a top time celebrating with the NHS peeps at Alive Lincoln. Check out the amazing review we got from the organisers….
‘I actually can’t speak highly enough of Funk Soul Family. From when we booked them to when they played at our dinner they were brilliantly professional. The quality of the music they play is excellent and so much fun to dance to. They are lovely people and amazing musicians. The song choices were excellent and we had the option to taylor the songs to the audience which was an added bonus. I’d book them again in a flash and I’m recommending them to everyone – our dance floor was full!’

Funk Soul Family loved celebrating with Pete and Naomi at the Cheadle House hotel. We started out the day playing some chilled acoustic tunes as the guest guests arrived and then finished off the evening with some epic dancing and sing alongs with Funk Soul Family. Check out the amazing review we got from the newly weds….
“When we were looking for a wedding band, it felt as though the last thing we wanted was a ‘wedding band’, as the first thing that comes to mind is cheesey hits from before we were born! We first saw Funk Soul Family at a bar near to us and loved the set they played. A cool mash up of contemporary music from the naughties, with the odd classic with a funky twist. Music that was current but still would appeal to the more experienced generation!
Throughout the build up to the big day, Pete was relaxed in getting information from us, with a few gentle reminders when needed. Funk Soul Family then delivered a perfect night of music, creating a party where literally everyone was up and dancing. Funk Soul Family were one of the highlights of our day and one of the best decisions that we made. They made the night and we would choose them again in a heartbeat. Thanks guys for an amazing party!”

Funk Soul Family had a great road trip over to sunny Southport for a rustic style wedding complete with bunting, bales of hay and raucous dancing! After getting fully fuelled up on traditional fish and chips which we ate down by the sea, we got the party rocking and had an absolute blast! Check out the brilliant review from Helen and Ste…
“No other wedding band could have completed the atmosphere for our reception like Funk Soul Family. The whole group are so fun and friendly with an exquisite level of musicianship. Our guests were a pretty shy bunch but Funk Soul Family had them up and dancing from the start. Their tunes are irresistible and they know exactly to how to get a party moving! Every aspect was spot on, and the band worked around us and our day. Even in planning, Pete was diligent yet easy going, knowing how much pressure already goes into wedding preparation. I can’t thank the band enough for what they brought to our wedding!”
