What people say Help

  • The Trunkies were excellent - punctual, efficient and above all great musicians. They went down a storm and our guests loved them. They had everybody on the dance floor, even the ones with bad backs - would certainly recommend them!

    Linda, Wedding, Lancashire, September 2016
  • I would just like say how amazing the Trunkies were on Saturday at my wedding at the Devonshire House Hotel Liverpool. Georgie the lead singer was so professional!! He reassured me all week before my wedding organising a DJ for me and putting my mind at ease!! I would definitely recommend them!!! Great lads, great music!!!

    Louise, Wedding, Liverpool, May 2015
  • The group performed superbly!! They really made the evening reception a night for us to remember.

    Verne, Wedding, Blackburn, March 2015
  • The Trunkies who we booked through Function Central were superb, playing two fantastic sets that catered perfectly for the musical tastes of all who were present. Even those who did not fancy hitting the dance floor enjoyed the band from their seats. This was supported by the DJ that the band brought with them who kept the music playing until late in the evening. The singer was a fantastic front man with a great voice who was nothing but attentive in ensuring he met then needs of his audience. Could not recommend the band highly enough.

    Mark, Wedding, London, December 2014
  • The band was amazing, so polite and professional. All our guests were raving about them the dance floor was never empty!! Was a pleasure to have them at our wedding. Band also made contact before wedding giving their nos and wanting any requests. Very helpful. Thank you

    Joanne, Wedding, September 2014
  • The Trunkies were fantastic! All we wanted to create was a party atmosphere for our guests and the band did just that! The music and vocals were spot on and the dance floor was packed for both sets. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone that wants a great sounding band for any event. They played most of the songs we asked them to and then some we didn't but everything was just brilliant from start to finish!

    Laura and Adam, Wedding, Bolton, July 2013
  • They were fantastic. I honestly can't remember all my friends and family dancing as much as they did that night. We've all been talking about the band since!

    Mike, Wedding, June 2013
  • The process for booking a band with Function Central was so straightforward which saved us a lot of stress and our contact, Beverley, could not have been more helpful when dealing with our many queries and requests! The band were fantastic on the night - we had the swing set followed by the full band and also the DJ for between sets. All the songs we requested were played, we really enjoyed the DJ's song selection and both the band and the DJ were really flexible about the timings.

    We loved having our first dance to a live rendition of Ain't That a Kick in the Head and Georgie's voice was brilliant. The dance floor was packed all night, including some surprising appearances from some of our guests who don't usually dance! It was so lovely for both of us to see so many of our friends and families enjoying themselves so much. We would highly recommend the Trunkies, they certainly helped our wedding reception to be an occasion to remember.

    Julia and Martin, Wedding, Manchester, November 2012
  • We both want to say how much we enjoyed having The Trunkies play at our wedding. The organisation was spot on, with plenty of contact beforehand to finalise our plans. On the night they were punctual, professional and well presented. We had a wide range of guests and everyone we spoke to at the end of the night talked about how much they enjoyed the band. The set list was excellent, something to get everyone up dancing! We would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

    Ian, Wedding, Lancashire, August 2012
  • We received a very professional service from both Function Central and The Trunkies. I received so many comments from guests both on the night and afterwards about how good the band were. On the day the band arrived in plenty of time and set up whilst we were elsewhere in the venue. As we came into the room for the evening reception Georgie introduced himself and checked that everything we had discussed before was still ok. The first dance was a great version and it got everyone up dancing straight away. As they went through the first set they judged the crowd's reaction to the type of music they were playing and adjusted to make sure that people kept dancing. By the second set the dancefloor was completely packed and there was great disappointment that the band had to eventually finish!! The DJ then started playing and people continued to dance for another hour or so until well into the early hours – I think the DJ might even have played for longer than he should as there were so many people still up! We have also had friends who came to our wedding and are looking to organise their own wedding ask about them so we are passing on recommendations all the time!!

    Laura, Wedding, Sheffield
  • Georgie's voice is AMAZING!! They played a fab range of songs and the dance floor was packed all night long. All our guests commented on how good they were. We even ended up asking the band to stay on for an exra few songs. We just didn't want them to finish. A DJ service was provided with the band and again this was excellent, they played all the requests and had a vast range of songs. I also have to mention how friendly, polite and professional all the guys were, even the venue commented on this and said they were a pleasure to work with. We would definately use the band again and would recommed them to anyone.

    Nicola, Wedding, The Wirral
  • Claire and I have just got back from our honeymoon and I wanted to take the earliest opportunity to email you and thank you for all you're assistance in the organising of 'The Trunkies' to play at our wedding two weeks ago. The band were a huge hit! They were punctual, set up promptly and performed excellently. They truly are consummate professionals. I do not recall having been to any other wedding or function for that matter at which the dance floor was literally jammed full all night thanks to their excellent performance. All the guests commented on the quality of the band and I would not hesitate to recommend them or your services to anyone looking for this type of entertainment. Thank you once again,

    Chris and Claire, Wedding, Cheshire
  • Please pass on our sincere thanks to The Trunkies for their brilliant performance at our wedding reception. They really were fantastic and everyone commented on how great they were. My friend has even booked them for her wedding! They truly made the party. Thank you!

    Louise and Rob, Wedding
  • Thank you very much for the Trunkies. A superb band that really got everyone off their seats and created a special atmosphere at our wedding. a brilliant selection of songs in their repertoire. would be glad to reccomend to anyone.

    Arik, Wedding
  • We’re just back from our honeymoon and I just wanted to say how fantastic the Trunkies were at our wedding. They had everyone on the dance floor absolutely all night and played all the tunes we asked for and some other amazing choice wich we loved! I absolutely cannot recommend them highly enough so please let me know if you would like me to put a review somewhere. Thank you so much for all your help with organising it. You made it very straightforward and easy and we couldn’t have been happier with how the night went.

    Emily and Henry, Wedding
  • Dear Ali, just to pass on my thanks to The Trunkies & Ben who entertained our guests at my husbands surprise 40th on Saturday night. Both acts were brilliant and did everything I had requested, the Trunkies in particular were awesome, very talented musicians indeed, alot of our guests asked who they were.
Would definitely book them in the future.
Thanks for all your help.

    Tracy W., Birthday Party, Leicestershire
  • The Trunkies were fantastic, better than we could have dreamt. They played our requested first dance song which wasn't on their list, and played the rest of the songs in a way that got the whole venue dancing through all the generations. They were flexible with special requests, kept good communication with us and were a great bunch of lads.
    Function Central did everything we would have wanted. They were helpful with finding us the perfect band and kept up great communication throughout. No hitches, no problems, highly recommended. Thank you and could you also send our thanks onto the Trunkies.

    Roshan R., Berkshire
  • Hi Ali, can you once again pass on our thanks to The Trunkies, they were excellent on the night and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and the atmosphere created.

    Chris M., Wedding, London
  • Sorry for late reply - was fully intending to email regarding Trunkies so thank you for the prompt.

    We hired them for our wedding reception and they were fantastic - the range of music they played was brilliant and their interaction with the audience was fab. They were so professional - all our guests commented on what a great job they'd done and how much they had enjoyed listening to them. They let us use their PA to play our music through and set everything up - which was really helpful.

    We had spent months looking for a band to hire before we came across Function Central. We were impressed with the easiness of booking and paying- 1 email and 2 telephone conversations and with how easily everything worked out. We would definitely recommend the Trunkies and Function Central to our friends and family!!!!

    Catherine B., Reception, North Yorkshire
  • The Trunkies are great lads. Went down a storm, lost count of how many people have asked for us to have them back. They made the night.
    It’s great working with Function Central, you make it sooo easy. Your web site is so user friendly keep up the good service.

    Eileen A., of KWC, Isle of Man
  • The Trunkies were awesome, great selection of songs we loved at our wedding. Also they practised for our first dance song. Will highly recommend them to anyone who wants a groovy band! Agency was very efficient and useful to keep every thing simple.

    Chris A., Wedding, Lancashire
  • The Trunkies made our evening! They were fantastic and all of our guests commented on how professional they were. I’m sure we’ll see them again at one of our friends’ parties.

    John, Wedding, Cheshire
  • These guys were great to deal with. They were friendly, reliable and well rehearsed. It was brilliant to see all of our guests dancing so much! We will certainly be booking The Trunkies again.

    Annabel, Wedding, Liverpool
  • Weddings are meant to be the best day of a lady’s life and The Trunkies certainly added to this. How five musicians can put on a show like that is beyond me, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Hopefully we’ll see them again.

    Susan W., Wedding, Staffordshire
  • You know when you book The Trunkies you are guaranteed a night of excellent entertainment. Their extensive repertoire means that all ages are catered for and their flexibility and determination make them one of the best bands on the Wirral.
