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.
With thanks to Tapebank Digital Video Productions
“You were all fantastic last night!! Thank you so much. Xx”
– Stephanie Broadley, Bride
Just returned from a very exciting break for our very own FOTR family wedding in Cyprus, to see keyboard player Mr Walker tie the knot. A very warm welcome to all our new fans and followers, and thank you to everyone who has been in touch during our time away. Please bear with us just a little longer whilst we work our way through the bursting inbox! Thank you for your patience x
… a great photographer makes.
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!

“I would just like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Func On the Rocks and Annie their manager. What an Amazing session performed at my daughters wedding. From the onset Annie answered my questions via email promptly. The song lists for us to choose our tunes for the evening were extensive – fab selection, it took us ages whittling it down to our final choice – each song was performed brilliantly I must add! :) Even the request for my husband to join the band on bass for one number was accommodated and he loved it !! All our guests had a fantastic evening and the floor was filled from start to finish with our youngest guest age 2 up to my dad age 89!!! The staff at the venue all commented that they had never heard such a fantastic band play at Delbury. The only disappointment was that it was all over far too soon :( I only hope that I get the opportunity to hear you play again in the not too distant future :) “

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
