A great night was had by all at the recent charity event Bramham Ball raising funds for some amazing local causes. The crowd were unbelievable, dancing long into the wee small hours. The night also featured some other fab entertainment including mind-boggling magic and there was even a local celebrity (see if you can spot them!). We had such a ball that we’ll be back to do it all again next year, so get your dancing shoes ready and we’ll see you there.
With thanks to everyone involved in putting on such a great event, and to Pixrich Photography who captured the evening perfectly.
“We booked Func on the Rocks for Bramham Ball this July, raising funds for local charities. They surpassed all expectations and were one of the major reasons why the Ball was so successful. Their unbounded energy and enthusiasm and their ability to keep the dance floor full and buzzing all night meant we had no hesitation in booking them immediately for next year’s Ball. One of our guests booked them soon afterwards for a Birthday party and we can’t wait to hear them again. Great guys, great musicians, great choice of songs = a great night enjoyed by all!” - Nick Hall, Bramham Ball 2013
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
We’re delighted to share with you a great video from last year’s James Bond 007 themed charity ball for Bethany’s Smile, a local charity fronted by an inspirational young lady raising money for sick children.
We know so much hard work went into putting the event together, and it was all worth it because they raised an amazing amount of money for children with life threatening and life limiting illnesses. Click here to find out more about the story of Bethany’s Smile.
Keep up the great work, we hope to be back there again next year!
One of the best things about being a function band is getting the chance to play at so many amazing venues. One of our favourites in particular being East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley. This stunning 17th century manor house with romantic gardens and converted barn is perfectly suited to every part of a dream wedding day. You can also rest assured that you will be in the capable hands of an experienced professional with Weddings Supervisor, Emma Cunliffe.
We would like to thank the happy couple Mr & Mrs Fowler for allowing us to be a part of their beautiful day at East Riddlesden Hall recently and share a few shots with you.
“Wonderful! The band fitted in so well with our relaxed feel and even our sixteen month old daughter was up having a boogie!” - Thomas & Catherine Fowler
We don’t often share the blog love with other kinds of businesses, but when we come across a real gem we just have to. For all our brides and grooms from the south, it is our pleasure to introduce to you – Richard Skins, Dorset Wedding Photographer. Enjoy!
Huge congratulations again and thanks to Danika, Gary and the lovely mother-of-the-bride for allowing us to be a part of such a beautiful wedding and then share these shots with you. All the best for the future x
You might ask, how can you improve on the perfect cocktail of Func On The Rocks? Well add an extra shot of hot sauce! By this we mean the perfect complimentary combination of super-talented vocalists leading the way.
We have the great pleasure of introducing to you, the secret weapon in the world of live music… The Func On The Rocks fully loaded 6-piece band featuring not one, but two of the north of England’s finest vocal talent… and they’re sisters!
Stay tuned for our exciting new video showcasing this fantastic line-up COMING SOON.
Just like your children, you shouldn’t have a favourite. But how can we fail to put this wedding up there with the best of the bunch? With memories flooding back via some stunning images from the super-talented Paul Joseph Photography we’d like to share one of our top weddings from 2012 with you.
A huge congratulations again to the happy couple David and Amy-Jean and another big thank you to them for choosing us to share their special day at Broughton Hall Utopia. The crowd were amazing, and kicking off the party with a Tina Turner classic Proud Mary, we couldn’t have wished for a better reception. We wish you all the very best for the future x “A rather large portion of our guest list was made up of professional musicians and West End musical theatre performers. So, trying to find a band that could make an impression on such a crowd was always going to be a challenge. After trawling through endless sound clips on the internet, we had not found a band that even came close. Then one click later, the voice of Cherie Gears somehow managed to fill the room, even through the tiny speakers of our laptop. The next day, we had our band booked.
And what a band! This is a band that’s so good they had the dance floor full on their sound check! Turns out we had nothing to worry about, every one of our guests loved the music and they were not shy in telling us so.
You guys really did over-deliver and we couldn’t recommend you highly enough. Cannot wait for the opportunity to book you guys again! - David & Amy-Jean“
