Cinco Magic play a wide range of funky covers from Prince and Stevie Wonder to Bruno Mars, Sam Smith and James Bay.

The band are fronted by one of Function Central’s most popular acoustic guitar/vocalists Marcel (as seen in Marcel & Matt). Marcel is disgustingly talented: as a child star he played played The Artful Dodger at The Palladium and later went on to Grange Hill, Footballers Wives with occasional appearances in Doctors and The Bill. He’s also a successful voiceover artist and has gigged for SKY Sports, adverts, and memorably, Bob The Builder.

They were everything we could have asked for on the night and truly made it a memorable occasion! Jamie & Caroline, Wedding

Other members have supported acts like Jessie Jay, Labyrinth and Mark Ronson, have played as far afield as the US, Japan and Brazil. These guys are the real deal!

Whatever the occasion – be it wedding reception, product launch, birthday bash or retirement party – Cinco Magic's passion for music and entertaining a crowd is obvious from the first chord. They're fast-becoming one of our most requested bands for hire in London and have been smashing it on the wedding, corporate and party circuits!

“What can we say? We were worried that it would be difficult to fill the dance floor at our wedding last week as it was only small, but we couldn't have been more wrong! The playlist was great and everyone had a great time. You guys made the day perfect so thanks a million!”

Paul, Wedding, Kent, August 2019

“The agency were very helpful and great with their correspondence. The band were phenomenal! I am so happy we booked them and I would absolutely recommend them. They played all the tracks we loved and got everyone on the dance floor - even on a Sunday night! They even got involved with the photo booth!”

Dan & Rochelle, Wedding, Houchins Barn in Essex, August 2019

“Cinco Magic were fantastic. They arrived early, were very friendly and approachable and very flexible about what and how they performed. They are excellent musicians and both their sets were thoroughly enjoyed by all the guests who ranged in age from teenagers to pensioners. They are really nice guys and even allowed my daughter and a friend to sing along on stage with one of their songs. I would certainly book them again in the future.”

Marie, Wedding, London, July 2019

“The band were brilliant and kept everyone fully entertained. They played a mix of genres and every one of the songs they played were a crowd pleaser. We would definitely hire them again.”

Katie, Corporate Event, Barking Enterprise Centre, July 2019

“The band were great, they sang current songs mixed with old school classics which was just what we were after! They were fun & easy going! We would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a band!”

Stacey, Wedding, Blackstock County Estate, June 2019

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you. You had the perfect set lists and everyone was extremely happy. I think that my dad's "dance moves" and rather impressive pelvic thrusts may have shown that - but honestly a great time was had by all, made perfect by you 4 : ) I have passed on your details and will definitely be recommending you to others. Thanks again!”

Amelia, Wedding, London, June 2019

“We booked Cinco Magic for our London wedding this June because we wanted a band that was something a little different and the band's set list had so many of our favourite songs! We also loved Marcel's voice from just watching the demo videos- so beautiful and unique! Booking through Function Central was super easy and Alistair & Beverley were so helpful and quick to respond to our questions. We found booking a band for the wedding to be quite a daunting prospect as neither of us are musical people! Beverley was so helpful in sorting out a couple of last minute issues too! The band arrived promptly and set up so quietly we didn't even hear them setting up during speeches! They were so friendly and got everyone up and dancing! The second set was definitely where things really got going- I only wish we had them for longer as the time went so fast! Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the music.”

Amy & Tom, Wedding, The Depot in London, June 2019

“Cinco Magic were great and really made the evening. They played great songs and got the crowd up and dancing for hours. Many of my guest were impressed with how good the band were. They were also able to play our first dance song which was a really nice touch. I would definitely recommend Cinco Magic for a wedding band.”

Laura & Jack, Wedding, Sprivers Mansion in Kent, May 2019

“The act were really great and managed to set up well. We probably just needed confirmation sooner regarding a few of the last minute details as we had to chase. Otherwise we were really happy with how it turned out.”

Micah & Laura, Wedding, Northbrook Park in Surrey, May 2019

“You were amazing! Thank you for performing at our wedding party – the dancefloor was packed and everyone had a great time. In fact we enjoyed it so much we are thinking of getting re-married just so we can have another party & hire you again!”

Simon & Julia, Wedding, London, March 2019

“The booking was pretty smooth and the act was absolutely fantastic. They played some funky music and got the crowd on their feet and were pitch perfect!”

Leigh & Gemma, Birthday Party, La Fourchette in Brighton, March 2019

“Soulful, funky, cool - they were brilliant! Exactly what we were looking for. Thank you!”

Mouse, Christmas Party, London, December 2018

“From start to finish your company and band were so easy and straightforward to deal with which is a godsend when you have so much to sort out. Would I recommend? Oh yes and numerous people at my wedding commented on the band and wanted to know who to contact and I gave them your details. Thanks so much! A real pleasure to deal with :)”

Steve & Jacqui, Wedding in Foy, August 2018

“Cinco Magic were fantastic. Played every song we asked for and got everyone up dancing. Would definitely recommend them.”

Michelle & Brodie, Wedding at Burford Bridge Hotel in Surrey, July 2018

“Superb act!”

Ketu & Georgie, Wedding at Colchester Firstsite Art Gallery in Essex, July 2018

“Cinco Magic were awesome! Great songs that had everyone dancing all night. The band were really nice guys who were very accommodating with our music requests. Would definitely rebook and highly recommend.”

Anne-Marie & Simon's 50th Party in Leatherhead, June 2018

“Cinco Magic was amazing - they played with the type of soulful, funky feel that we needed at our wedding! They were flawless in delivery, and they got the crowd going- but built a set that varied enough to make it a bit of a journey. On top of that, they were incredibly professional and flexible, rolling well with the craziness of a wedding day! Hats off to the squad!”

Emilie & Didi, Wedding at Spitalfields in London, June 2018

“Why aren’t you famous yet? You put on a great show for us. It was a long time to play and right through the evening dinner as well. The groom and his mum loved it and they are musicians as well - We all really enjoyed you. Thank you again.”

Clem, Wedding, London, June 2018

“Cinco Magic were amazing, friendly, professional and very easy to get on with. Their song choices were brilliant and really got my party people on their feet dancing!”

Rehana, Birthday Party at St Michael's Hall in Bounds Green

“Just wanted to drop a line to say how happy we were with the band on Saturday - they were amazing and very professional throughout. They played all the right tunes and sounded incredible! It definitely added something special to our day. Many thanks!”

Sarah, Wedding in Surrey, October 2017
