We are family

We’re delighted to share with you a few special moments captured at one of our favourite weddings of last year. Celebrating the marriage of a member of our extended Func On The Rocks family circle on her beautiful day at the Carriage Hall, Nottinghamshire. Congratulations again to the lovely Laura and Brad!

The first dance was of course especially moving, and we all know what a huge disney fan our beloved lead singer is. So we could certainly feel the love that night with the band’s rendition of the Elton John/Tim Rice classic from the Lion King.

“Thank you so much for playing at our wedding :) You helped to make our day so special.
We were initially worried that people wouldn’t dance but you guys got everyone up dancing all night until they kicked us out! Everyone said how good the live sets were and also the choice of dj music too.
Thank you so much for learning our first dance song even though it involved blending two versions of the song together, it was so perfect and we loved it :)
Special thanks to Steve for managing the task of being a guest and performing at our wedding.
The venue and many of our guests were so impressed they have requested your details for future weddings!
Lots of love Brad and Laura Thompson-Stevens”
- Bride & Groom

To top the night off, the guests (and us!) enjoyed our time to shine in the photobooth. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such an awesome night guys x

Same time next year!

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

Bethany’s Smile

Video

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!
