FUNK ‘N’ SOUL, were established back in 2008 when Samantha, (Events Manager) was approached by her previous employer to provide a 4 piece dinner jazz band for a corporate Christmas function. The guests were amazed by the quality of the musicians and word rapidly spread. When’s the next one? People asked. Samantha, continued to provide the live band for weddings and birthday celebrations. She decided to provide a unique, touring Function Band (with that Something “a-little-extra”). They are made up entirely of 9 professional musicians who have toured the world perfecting their crafts, bringing over 200 years of experience to every event! Our musicians have worked with the likes of The Drifters, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Stylistics, Jamiroquai and Shirley Bassey to name but a few. “Over the years, as FUNK ‘N’ SOUL, we have had the opportunity to delight audiences all around the UK and parts of Europe, and consider nowhere too far to light up with our funky, soulful sounds.”
We a have made a name for ourselves through our energy and commitment to creating that “buzz” & “excitement” required for memorable events; having the crowd dancing until dawn or your feet hurt – whichever comes first! Paul, our sensational Front-Man, including our beautiful and soulful female vocalists Catherine, or De, will NOT rest until everybody is on the dance floor and having a great time, they really know how to get people up off their seats, their feet moving and the party going!
2017 was a great year and as we enter a new season, we are ever popular for weddings and private parties but we are attracting many more London based corporate functions, keen to hire entertainment who can cater to various musical tastes throughout the day or event.
Our unchanged secret to success is having very professional and 100% dedicated band members, who musically-click and perform with such great unison. The desire to inspire is all – with a (capital) LOVE for performing to the party crowd, taking pride and great pleasure in reintroducing our repertoire of world-renowned, classic tribute songs “LIVE” (with precision and energy like you have never experienced before)
Hiring the ‘Funk’N’Soul’ complete package is a great way to save money, time and stress at your event, avoiding the need for multiple sound systems, onsite technicians and additional performance acts!
