Funky fever, sexy soul, raucous rock, pumping pop & don't-stop-disco; floor fillers & stiletto-stompers from 60s to present day. A bunch of musicians politely going through the motions? No way!
FunKtionality have boundless energy and enthusiasm and are possibly the most infectious thing since measles.
If you want to see horn players start a conga-line, or singers serenading people (even outside the room!) then this is the band you need to book! Even Her Majesty can't help but boogie year in, year out at Royal Ascot!
*Astonishing Act with a real WOW Factor*
FunKtionality are the Ultimate Party People! This is one band that will know how to WOW you musically and exhaust you visually! That's not to say they can't tone it down and be well-behaved if you want something a little more low-key, mellow or sophisticated.
FunKtionality are able to tailor their performance and music exactly to your specification with their repertoire including a generous spoonful of every ingredient required for an unforgettable performance; from rock n' roll, pop, funk, soul, disco, rock and jazz. Whatever your preference they will add an extra helping and keep you coming back for more.
The band are equally happy / energetic / at home and put on just as good show in small intimate venues (including restaurants, converted barns, private houses, marquees etc & without necessarily having a stage / backdrop & all the pomp & production of a large event / venue!).
FunKtionality have enjoyed playing to a select gathering of 50 guests as much as to a heaving crowd of over 5,000 & adapt perfectly to any surrounding & situation, you won't find any divas, tantrums or tiaras in this band!
FunKtionality pride themselves on alway giving 100% and making each individual event a reason to keep their great name going with positive gossip on the grapevine.
They were also voted & featured by the prestigious Brides Magazine in their 'Top Wedding Band' issue, enjoyed supporting Madness at the Cardiff International Arena, booked for the entire week long festivities at Royal Ascot, flown to Mauritius, Bangkok, Montreux & Barcelona for Alliance & Leicester, Rome for Geopost, Istanbul for Microsoft, private weddings in Lake Como, Lake Constanz, Lyon, Dublin, Prague, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs up and down the UK, are annual regulars at the 5* Le Meridien in Dubai for their New Years Grand Ball, and Sheraton's Full Moon resort in The Maldives, regulars in Shanghai for the British Chamber of Commerce's Charity Summer Ball, regulars for Ascot & Cheltenham Racecourse and at the BBC's The Choir live festival & are first call for numerous agencies and top production companies around the UK/internationally - amongst many, many other proud moments & the occasional celebrity shoulder-rubbing along the way!

Just wanted to pop a note to say how incredible the band were, thank you so much. Booking was all smooth and really easy and the guests were all raving about how great they were afterwards. Loads of energy, great playlist and guaranteed to get everyone on the dance-floor all night! Made the evening!
The band were spectacular as always and the booking process was really simple. Really pleased with how the event went and band were superb. Would definitely recommend them.
On behalf of EThames Graduate School let me thank Warble Entertainment Agency for all the services and helping us to make our Party and Cultural Programmes a Grand success! Our special thanks also to FunKtionality band for presenting a marvelous show and enchanting the crowd with their music. They really did present a wonderful show. My special thanks to Emily and the rest of the members of FunKtionality for doing a great job. Words are not enough to praise the them. The guests were so happy and we would definitely want to work with them and with Warble in the future. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Thank you for such a memorable evening. The band were great, they sounded amazing and more importantly interacted with the guests. They jumped down from the stage and sang with the people dancing on the dance floor. Amazing evening, thank you.
Many thanks once again for assisting me in sourcing a band for our event. The pre event assistance/correspondence was great with a quick response time and the correspondence we then had with the band was prompt and useful. Although I wasn't at the event, I understand the band were a great success and had the dance floor full by the end of the night. So Warble have done it once again! Many thanks for all your help.
The band were excellent. Everything was easy to arrange before hand and Emily got in touch with us to arrange nearer the time. The band came on and got everyone up dancing in record time, they were in amongst the crowd, up on chairs getting people involved. So many people have asked where they came from and we'd all love to see them again. Great mix of modern and older songs with a twist so they appeal to all ages. Great band.

Also, and at no extra cost FunKtionality provide a disco as a warm-up and between sets, tailored to your tastes and able to take requests on the night.
As well as the famously funky party band, FunKtionality are also able to 'slip into something more comfortable' if your event has a special theme.
Whether it is a flare-fest from the sequinned Studio 54 doing all that's groovy from the 70s, shouting Aloha! in a beach party theme in grass skirts with the Hawaii 5-0s, donning a naughty schoolgirl uniform as The Prefects to whisk you back to school, maybe Catwoman, Superman and Co. as The Movie Band, or even getting 'shagadellic baby' in an Austin Powers theme with Mojo, Horror Zombies, Pirates, Mardi Gras - whatever you fancy, let us know, we'll always try and accommodate!
FunKtionality are also able to offer a ‘70s or ‘80s set in costume, a 30 minute James Bond tribute Octopussy, or background / reception entertainment with their jazz ensemble. They can also provide 'stings' for walk-ons, fanfares etc for awards ceremonies, plus breakdancers, plus a vocal / guitar duo / trio for receptions.
They can also play a 12-15 minute Israeli medley, plus God Save The Queen and the Hatikvah for Jewish functions.
EXTRAS TO BOOK:
- We also have a 'Big Band' on request, playing Swing / Ratpack style favourites (bigger line-up required).
- Plus, we have Pop Idle - our live band karaoke, we play, YOU sing... we provide lyrics / encouragement!
- Duo / Trio: usually Vocals / Acoustic Guitar, including light pop, mellow, jazz, blues etc. for uptempo funky / mellow background.
