We cannot recommend Charlie and the band more highly.Charlie and the Funk Factory were just amazing at our wedding — the dance floor was packed and the fact that everyone kept calling for ‘one more song!’ at the end of the night says it all — nobody wanted their second set to end! It was so great to have them performing our first dance song for us too and it really made it such a special and memorable occasion. Thank you guys for being utterly brilliant! If you’re looking for a true funk band (and a lovely bunch of people too!), look no further. We cannot recommend Charlie and the band more highly - Antonia and Toby

We recently hired Charlie and the Funk Factory to play at our wedding. They played an acoustic set and a full band set later in the evening. Both were superb. They were really lively, the vocals and musicianship were excellent, and they judged the crowd really well. We had so many comments afterwards from guests about how great they were, and we also got the impression the band really enjoyed being there playing too. Would highly recommend - Emily and Owen

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for performing at Connect's Christmas Party last Friday held at The Hilton Metropole Hotel. You were absolutely amazing and made the evening so special! Everyone loved you and you kept the dance-floor full for the whole night. You even made an effort to add to our 1920's party theme, which was very thoughtful and we greatly appreciated. You're immensely talented and all such lovely people, I would highly recommend you to anyone! - Sophie

Thank you all SO MUCH for making the event such a massive success! You were all absolutely brilliant - Rachel, National Student Psychiatry Conference

You guys absolutely smashed it last night, I absolutely loved it and so did everyone else! Thank you so much! - Becca, 21st Birthday Party
