We’re so excited to share with you a short snippet from our wedding of the year, celebrating two of our nearest and dearest tying the knot! What a beautiful day it was, the sun was shining bright on the hottest day on record in November as Stephanie & Aden married at The Old Barn in Esholt and it was our pleasure to have performed their first dance to Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud. We’re also delighted to share with you the amazing impromptu performance of Love is in the Air (which we’d never played before!) at the end of the night by Father of the Bride, Mike dusting off his microphone skills from the good old days when he was in a band much like Func On The Rocks.

“You were all fantastic last night!! Thank you so much. Xx”

We love a good first dance, and you can’t get better than a happy couple putting their absolute all into it. This lovely bride and groom rocked the dancefloor from start to finish to one of our all time favourite songs, and an ever popular choice – Florence & The Machine’s turn on You’ve Got The Love. They have very kindly shared some beautiful photos with us from their big day at Wood Hall Hotel & Spa, Wetherby.
“The band were OUTSTANDING so so AMAZING!!
How can we ever thank them enough!!
Everyone loved them the dance floor was full constantly.
The first dance gave me goose bumps.
It was truly fantastic!!! Hope they had a good time too?
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts we really appreciate all you did for us.
Love Helen and Phil x” – Bride & Groom
Huge thanks to Helen and Phil, we wish you all the best for the future x

The star of the show at a recent wedding this month was undoubtedly our honorary bass player, in the form of the blushing bride’s step-father Jon.
A musician himself from the bygone era of the 80’s, Jon just loves playing guitar and drums and still plays local charity gigs with friends. Both he and the very proud Mother of the Bride couldn’t wait to surprise the happy couple by Jon’s unexpected appearance on stage with us laying down a ‘phat’ groove on the bass to ‘Play That Funky Music’, which of course he did.
Here’s a little snippet of the stunning bride and groom, Danika and Gary’s reaction to their Func On The Rocks experience…
“Hi Guys!! Myself and Gary Shaw just wanted to tell you how AMAZING!!! You are all so talented, everyone said they could not sit down all night!! The extra saxophone really did just set every song off!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU you helped make our wedding day so special!!!! xxx”
– Danika Charlotte Shaw
They have also very kindly allowed us to share the special moment of their beautiful first dance with you. Enjoy!
There’s no better feeling than knowing you’ve put an extra big smile on the faces of a happy bride and groom by topping off their special day with a party to remember.
We still get choked up every time we’re given the opportunity to perform a first dance. Then we love to crank up the tempo and get your guests up and dancing the night away.
For some inspiration for your first dance take a look at some of our most popular choices here.
Special thanks to Mr & Mrs Brown x
