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“

The last of the English summer was smiling down on us for a great day at the Walk of Smiles charity event. Thank you so much to everyone who attended and helped support such a worthy cause.
80% of the money raised from the 10km sponsored walk will go to Martin House Children’s Hospice, while the rest will be used by Bethany’s Smile to support children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.
We bumped into local celebrity Leeds Rhino mascot Ronnie enjoying the day.
