Beki and James Rossington Hall Wedding
“We were absolutely thrilled with the whole experience from FOTR right from seeing Cherie’s smile as I walked down the staircase with my dad (she was ready to sing for the drinks reception) to boogieing the night away! They were everything we had hoped for and more. Really made our day.
Thanks so much again,
Rebecca and James”

Carri & Martin, Wedding
Oulton Hall, Leeds – December 2013

“The band were fantastic, they really added to our special day and Martin and I were really pleased.
So many guests commented on the band and how great they were. Even with Cherie poorly you guys were able to still deliver a great service. I am glad to hear Cherie is better now too :).
Melody did such a fab job and having the band do the first dance was awesome. I had read that a few bands chose not to do this as it can be very personal and the band may not get the right version. Not your band, there was no hesitation they just did it and fabulously.
Thanks again and I would highly recommend you and your band, Carri”

Laura & Brad, Wedding
The Carriage Hall, Nottingham – October 2013

Laura and Brad Carriage Hall Wedding Nottingham“Thank you so much for playing at our wedding ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
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”

Katie & Chris, Wedding
Close House Hotel, Newcastle – September 2013

“I canโ€™t believe how long it has taken me to get round to doing this but myself and Chris want to say a huge huge thank you to you and the band for their part in our wedding day back in September at Close House up in Newcastle.
They were truly amazing and we have never ever been to a wedding with such a packed dance floor all night! They were absolutely brilliant, played all of our requests, and dealt with our guests asking them for things on the night too! We couldnโ€™t have asked for anything more, especially for our first dance (Temper Trap, Sweet Disposition) which was just beautifully done. All of our guests keep talking about how good a time they had on the dancefloor and how amazing the music was ๐Ÿ™‚
Kind regards,
Katie”

Duncan & Claire, Joint 50th Birthday Party
Durham School – August 2013

“Can you thank all the band from me & Claire for their contribution to the fantastic night we had last Saturday, I hope they all enjoyed it as much as we did. We both had a cracking night, & had lots of our friends saying what a great band they were. I really enjoyed the jazz set in the conservatory – what a great blues voice Cherie has. Then the mix of music & the sound they produced with the horn section were superb & had everyone up & dancing to the end. They even plugged themselves back in & played me an encore when I didn’t want the night to end & I think they were all just ready to head home!
Thanks also to you for sorting things out & responding to last-minute emails. All the best to you all for the future & I hope to see them again sometime.”
– Duncan Bates

    Wow – you guys rocked the party!! Well, I would recommend Funk on the rocks for your event, wedding, party or home celebration. The band set up and prepared to do our first dance – we were blown away by the great sound and excellent musical ability and singing.
    They played for there sets and did not miss a beat – the songs we had chosen were put in a play list by the band and they rocked out all the tunes. Everyone commented on how good you all were, and the dance floor was packed.

    Money well worth spending, would not hesitate on hiring you guys again. Thank you and well done.

    Chris and Rebecca.
