We booked Funk Family to play at our wedding and they were everything we hoped for, and more! The process was easy, the guys great to work with and everything ran smoothly. On the night the band were amazing and certainly made a difference to the whole feel of the evening. I think EVERYONE was up and dancing at some point! I would (and already have!) recommended the guys and wouldn't hesitate to book them again. Thank you Funk Family for an incredible performance.

    How far do you travel?
    We’re based in Manchester, and we happily cover anywhere within 100 miles. If you are further away than that get in touch and we can get you a bespoke quote. All our quotes are fully inclusive of things like travel costs, so you don't need to worry about any hidden charges!

    How long do you play for?
    We usually play live music for one and a half hours (four piece band) or two hours (5 and 6 piece bands), normally split into two sets. However we are really flexible and can adjust timings to suit your needs or if other parts of your event overrun.  

    How long do you need for set up and soundcheck?
    This usually takes about an hour but varies depending on venue. Prior to your event we will discuss access with the venue to determine the best time for us to arrive. 

    How much space do you require?
    As a minimum we would ask for 3m x 3m.

    What is the Ipad DJ service?
    Our quotes include playing music on an iPad between the band performances. We work with you to compile a list of songs to create the perfect mood for your event.

    Can we choose which songs you will perform?
    We are happy to learn a song for your first dance. Let us know if you have any other specific requests we will accommodate as many as possible.

    Do you provide public liability insurance?
    Yes. Our musicians are part of the Musicians' Union which provides public liability insurance and all our equipment is PAT tested.
