Alexanders Charity Ball
Charity Event – February 2013

Alexanders Charity Ball
“I wanted to write to say a Massive Thank You to you all for Saturday night. The band were AMAZING and I don’t think I’ve seen a dance floor fill up so quickly ever! My guests loved the whole thing and the band certainly made an impression on them. I had hoped for target of £15,000 for this year but we’ve exceeded that with £16029 which is overwhelming and I Thank You for being a part of it.
Best wishes, Nicola x”

Broughton Hall Utopia – November 2012

David and Amy-Jean Wedding - Paul Joseph Photography
“A rather large portion of our guest list was made up of professional musicians and West End musical theatre performers. So, trying to find a band that could make an impression on such a crowd was always going to be a challenge. After trawling through endless sound clips on the internet, we had not found a band that even came close. Then one click later, the voice of Cherie Gears somehow managed to fill the room, even through the tiny speakers of our laptop. The next day, we had our band booked.

And what a band! This is a band that’s so good they had the dance floor full on their sound check! Turns out we had nothing to worry about, every one of our guests loved the music and they were not shy in telling us so.
You guys really did over-deliver and we couldn’t recommend you highly enough. Cannot wait for the opportunity to book you guys again!”

    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.
