They have a repertoire bursting with tried and tested floor-fillers, from the Stones and the Beatles to The Kings of Leon and Florence and The Machine. Working exclusively for Function Central, the band are frequently re-booked by corporate clients including the Ministry of Defence, Luscombes and Radley College, and are one of the most in-demand function bands in London and the South East. They've played literally hundreds of weddings at well-established venues such as Somerset House, Eltham Palace, Kenwood House, Pembroke Lodge, Shepperton Studios and London Zoo.

In addition to their private event work, the band have toured, recorded and performed with numerous original artists including folk singer Josh Bray, The Blackwhite, Cavalier, 6 Day Riot, Kareem, The Dub Pistols, Jeremy Warmsley, JJ Pistolet, We Are Carnivores and Adam Parker. They've released two independent singles and are regulars at several top UK festivals including Latitude, the Great Escape, Lounge on the Farm and Kendal Calling. Band members have also played radio sessions for Dermot O’Leary (BBC Radio 2), Zoe Ball (BBC Radio 2), Robert Elms (BBC London) and Jeff Lloyd (Absolute).

The band's most popular line-ups are as a 4-piece or a 5-piece incorporating keyboards, but they can also expand to include brass section. Friendly, outgoing and flexible, and will do their utmost to ensure your requirements are met, and your guests are entertained. They can provide a laptop DJ set between their sets to save on the space, cost and hassle of hiring a separate DJ. Wherever possible, they will also try to include a first dance or special song for your event.

What people say Help

  • The band arrived on time and set up quickly. They were all extremely polite and laid back - even willing to start on cue after speeches which they did brilliantly! I would definitely book The Fandangos again, that said - we already have!

    Ed, Birthday party, Suffolk, June 2016
  • The band were absolutely fantastic. they sounded great, and lots of people came and told me how good they thought they were. Tara, was lovely and very professional. Overall, very pleased. I will be keeping them in mind for future events.

    Christiane, Summer Ball, Suffolk, July 2016
  • To say that we were satisfied with The Fandangos would be the understatement of the year. They performed professionally and slickly, however this was combined with a great personable touch to the performance. They sounded great throughout, the levels and balance were great (no mean feat when performing in a barn). They threw in a nice surprise element which everyone loved, and it is safe to say that the dance floor was never empty when they were playing - everyone couldn't get enough of them.

    Dan, Wedding, Suffolk, November 2015
  • The Fandangos were amazing! They played a great range of music, had the dance floor full all night (including organising a hilarious dance off) and the lead singer's voice was incredible all night long. They did a great job on our slightly unconventional first dance choice. Thank you Fandangos!

    Kathryn, Wedding, Farnham, November 2014
  • The Fandangos were completely fantastic. We booked them for our wedding and they were such an amazing band - I would absolutely 100% recommend them. There was dancing ALL night long and so so many of my guests were completely wowed by how brilliant they were, to quote one friend, anyone who can do a cover of Michael Jackson that well is quite an amazing thing - the singer has an incredible voice. Logistically they were easy going, arrived on time, set up and sound checked with no problems at all. Proper lovely guys - THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Emily, Wedding, Bedfordshire, August 2014
  • The Fandangos were absolutely fantastic. They are a great band and were just what we wanted. Perfect. 100%. There were a lot of compliments from other guests as to their quality and how much they were enjoyed. Would I book them again? Absolutely. I am trying to persuade my wife that we should do so.

    Oliver, Private party, London, June 2014
  • They were absolutely brilliant! The music was fab-exactly what we wanted with the mix of funk, rock and pop. It certainly got everyone up and dancing and I had a lot of comments on how good they were. They made the party for many people! The band arrived exactly when they said they would and set up, etc with no problems. They were very accommodating, very friendly and polite. Overall great evening thank you very much!!

    Heather, 21st Birthday party, Kent, January 2014
  • The Fandangos were brilliant from start to finish. They were very flexible with arrangements of setup and pickup to fit in with the event timings. A very nice selection of hits over the last 30 years to cater for all ages on board, a great event all in all! Would always recommend.

    Jordan, Private party, London December 2013
  • The Fandangos were amazing! They couldn't have been more accommodating, learning our first dance song and 'Shake a tail feather', and they absolutely rocked it! They got everyone up and dancing, created a great party atmosphere, and we almost had a mutiny on our hands when they had to end their set. The lead singer has a powerful set of lungs on her and they killed every single song (in a good way!!!). If you want upbeat, great music with attitude, these are the guys to book!

    Roz, Wedding, Gaynes Park, September 2013
  • They were fantastic. We had contact with them prior to the wedding and they were excellent in putting the set list together with us. The acoustic set was perfect and then in the evening, they were fantastic. They joined in with the crowd and really got everyone having a great time. The dance floor was full all night. Many of our guests said they were excellent and made the night. Thank you very much.

    Tommy & Hannah, Wedding, Hampshire, September 2013
  • The wedding was epic, thank you so much, we had a wonderful time and the band were amazing. We were really impressed with The Fandangos and Function Central and will definitely be recommending both when more of our friends tie the knot, everyone is still talking about how brilliant the music was!!

    Kate, Wedding, Norfolk, September 2012
  • I have received a lot of good feedback about the band. They were fun, lively and entertaining. Their singer has a great voice. The music was appropriate for the audience. The band arranged to play a couple songs in the interval after requests. If given more warning, they would have been prepared to learn a new song. They also contacted me before the event, which was really nice. I would definitely book them again! Thanks!

    Nicki, Corporate Event, London, September 2012
  • We were all extremely satisfied with the Fandangos – they were very professional, friendly, played great music and the lead singer had a great voice. They made the evening and everyone said how impressed they were. We would book them again!

    Barry, Private Party, Surrey, June 2012
  • Thanks so much for sending us this band. They were absolutely great, fantastic sound and very good at getting a good rapport with the students. They said the bass player was awesome! Can I now book them again for next year for our Sixth Form Summer Ball?

    Cheryl, Student Event, Kent, June 2012
  • The Fandangos were excellent! A really wonderful end to a great day. They played almost all evening and our guests loved them and all commented on how good they were.

    We had made contact with Ed from the band and he was able to incorporate some of our requests into the set or the DJ section. All round a great day.

    Colin & Rachel, Wedding, London, May 2012
  • I just wanted to let you know how much we and all the guests at our wedding loved The Fandangos! You gave us a fantastic performance and we loved every minute! Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band. I hope to see you some time in the not too distant future.

    Camilla, Wedding, London, April 2012
  • We wanted to have a band at our wedding that was good and entertained all our guests. We underestimated how fantastic The Fandangos were. All our guests from young to old were dancing throughout the night. Everyone said they were the best band they had seen, how amazing they were and where did we find them. The Fandangos injected so much atmosphere and energy and made our first dance one of the most memorable parts of our day!

    Sarah and Martin, Wedding, West Midlands, February 2012
  • The band were absolutely brilliant they were at our wedding! They came in and set up without any fuss (hardly even noticed they were there). The first song they had learnt for us was amazing, and then straight into their first set which had everyone up on the dance floor, well for the rest of the night! They really exceeded all expectations and everyone was raving about how good they were, they really made our evening reception unforgettable so a big thank you!

    Amy and Dan, Wedding, London, December 2011
  • We booked The Fandangos for our wedding reception and couldn't have been happier. It really made our wedding day that they were able to play our first dance for us and the rest of the set was packed with great songs that had everyone dancing. Their vocalist is incredible, but the whole band were fantastic, I know from speaking to Guy before the wedding how hard they rehearse and it really paid off. We have had great feedback from our guests and we would not hesitate to recommend the band. Thank you.

    Neil and Christine, Wedding, London, November 2011
  • What can we say, they were first class! They are an excellent band with first rate service from start to finish and blend so well as a group. They got the whole dance floor up and moving and we had so many comments on the night about how fantastic they were. We are still getting comments now and I expect that will always continue! They were the perfect choice for our wedding reception, the mix of music they played was brilliant and they managed to incorporate some of our requests which made it very special. We will never forget out first dance, Stuck in the Middle with You, Steelers wheel, it was perfect and is such a long lasting memory, we were so happy they could play it live for us, it made the night! The band sound and look great, we can't recommend them highly enough and hope we are lucky enough to find ourselves at someone else's party or wedding reception where they might be playing in the future.

    Many thanks once again, service from start to finish with Function Central was also excellent and I will recommend you and the Fandangos to anyone looking for a reliable, quality service and great music!
