Charity Event – July 2013

Bramham Ball 2013 Pixrich Photography
“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

Louise & Lee, Wedding
East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley – June 2013

“The wedding day was amazing and it was made even better by such an amazing band! You were so professional and made sure that everything went smoothly – even though there was a slight issue with timings for cutting the cake and the first dance (the catering manager went missing)! We didn’t manage to narrow down a playlist but that was not a problem at all – there was a good mix of songs and there was something for everyone. All of our guests commented on how fantastic you were. Everyone was up on the dance floor dancing, singing and even playing air guitar (including grandparents!)
Thank you so much for all of your time and effort – we are so glad that you were part of our day and we wish we could do it all over again! Best Wishes, Louise & Lee xx”

Tim Jopling, 50th Birthday Party
Middlesbrough Golf Club – May 2013

“From the time I decided to have a party to celebrate my first 50 years having a great live group was always going to be key to the event. We spoke to people in the know the usual “my mate plays in a group” but I knew we wanted something special and we eventually found it after looking at a number of groups live and on the net. The first impressions of Func on the Rocks is a very professional and well put together web site. The initial contact with Annie the manager was also professional with prompt communication. This gave me confidence to proceed with the booking which was a smooth process and accommodated our timing and music choice including a proper contract which I felt was a big plus when parting with a decent sum of money upfront.
On the evening the band were just so professional, set up, timing, quality everything that I hoped for. Everyone of my 100 plus guests commented how good they were. I have just been back to settle my bill at the venue which was the Golf Club at Brass Castle. The catering manager has been there 10 years and the bar manager 30 years they have seen lots and lots of bands over that time. Their words to me “the best singer and musicians that have ever played at our place” what more can I say.
Booking Func on the Rocks was a great call I am so glad they were available thanks again to Cherie Lee Chris Steve Erik and the 6th member who ensures it works brilliantly Annie.”

“Hi Guys!! Myself and Gary Shaw just wanted to tell you how AMAZING!!! You are all so talented, everyone said they could not sit down all night!! The extra saxophone really did just set every song off!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU you helped make our wedding day so special!!!! xxx”
– Danika Charlotte Shaw, Bride

“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 🙂 “

    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.
