Cinco Magic

from£995

This is the act's lowest available price for a local performance by their smallest line-up. It does not include any travel costs.

Please note that many acts charge higher rates for events taking place on Fridays and Saturdays in summer.

Cinco Magic cover a wide range of funky covers from Bruno Mars, Sam Smith and James Bay, passing through Bob Marley and finishing somewhere near Michael Jackson and Prince!

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!

Everyone was on the dancefloor all night and the day after everyone kept asking us who the band was and how awesome they were!

Thanks so much!”

“The band were just fantastic and exceeded my expectations. They were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They discreetly set themselves up in the barn I had hired for my 40th Birthday party and played at a level that everyone appreciated i.e. not too loud/quiet. They perform to a very high standard and have a vast array of music spanning the decades. The majority of my guests commented on how good they were and where did I find them! I would, without hesitation, hire them again.”

We liked the look of the videos on the websites and they had a great range of songs!”
