We’re back!

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
Func On The Rocks Wedding

East Riddlesden Hall

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

What a difference…

… 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!

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

“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 :)

I’ve got a feeling…

First DanceThere’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.
