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.

Penfold are a polished and dynamic 4-piece who have played just about every kind of covers gig, from weddings to prestigious awards dinners, charity events for the Ministry of Sound to Christmas parties for Marks & Spencer and Burberry.

With around eight hours worth of party anthems, from 1950s rock'n'roll to recent pop, Penfold are able to perfectly tailor their set to each and every event and ensure all age-groups and musical preferences are accounted for.

In their seven years working exclusively with Function Central they’ve become one of our most acclaimed wedding bands in the South East, performing at all the best-known venues in the area, such as Lympne Castle, Rhinefield House, Swancar Farm, Clock Barn, Wotton House, Turvey House, The Tythe Barn, Westheath and Ettington Park.

They were a pleasure to deal with, punctual and provided first class entertainment all evening — the dancefloor was never empty! Beverley, Charity Ball, Suffolk

More recently they've been in vogue on the college and university freshers’ week circuit and have performed for parties as far north as Aberdeen and as far south as Falmouth.

The band offer their own “in-house” DJ service for a knock-down price, as well as brass section (recommended for their soul and funk repertoire). A two or three-piece ‘unplugged’ acoustic option is available to hire for laid-back background music during receptions and dinners.

Due to strong demand, early booking is recommended.

“Excellent band who had previously performed 5 years ago at our older son’s wedding. Booked additional hour with saxophonist/guitar duo to perform during drinks/canapés. We were delighted with the band and would certainly book again. Very professional booking service from Function Central. Always prompt replies from Beverley with no issues at any point.”

“An amazingly fun band! Music was fab, sound brilliant. Great bunch of guys who had everyone on the dance floor. The dance off was brilliant. ‘Best party ever I’ve ever experienced’ quote from a party goer.... and the band made it! Thank you so much for making my night such a success!”

10

“Penfold were fantastic great musicians, interacted with the crowd well and really made the evening enjoyable. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. The only slight area of confusion was when they were doing their sound check, which involved playing a few songs in full. People kept wanting to dance to this which was a bit difficult to manage as it was before the first dance. I'm not sure if this was the venues fault, but it would have been great to have a little more clarity that it was a sound check and the dance floor wasn't open for business! When they got going Penfold were brilliant!”

10

“Penfold were amazing! Such nice guys - a pleasure to deal with! They were punctual and provided first class entertainment all evening. I would recommend them 100%!”

10

“The band where excellent. We had a great chat with Matt before the wedding to talk through what we wanted on the day. Their selection of songs was what we wanted and on the day everything was so smooth and seamless. The band playing sounded amazing, they had everyone up all night dancing and made our reception! Highly recommended!”

10

“Penfold were fantastic great musicians, interacted with the crowd well and really made the evening enjoyable. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. The only slight area of confusion was when they were doing their sound check, which involved playing a few songs. People kept wanting to dance to this even though they hadn't started properly yet so it would have been great to have a little more clarity that it was a sound check and the dancefloor wasn't open for business! Perhaps we should have asked them to sound-check earlier in the day. When they got going, Penfold were brilliant!”

10

“Great band, had everyone dancing from the start and every second of their set. Great to deal with!”

10

“The band were so friendly and made the evening lots of fun!”

10

“We thought that Matt and the band were a pleasure to deal with from the outset. Correspondence was easy, they were happy to incorporate our song choices into their set list and the music itself was fantastic! I would have no problem in recommending them to a friend and I wish them all the best for the future.”

10

“Penfold were amazing! The communication was fantastic before the day and Matt answered all of my questions. They accommodated our requests for entrance music and our first dance, as well as really using initiative when there were delays in the timings etc. They were incredible and our guests loved it! The best part by far was the fantastic dance off they got us doing, I couldn't believe some of the people that were up on the floor having such a great time! Thank you Penfold for making our big night so special!”

10

“The band smashed it. They really created an awesome party atmosphere. Regular contact made things easy and they tailored their performance to our music preferences perfectly. Wouldn't have wanted anybody else!”

10

“The band were amazing, really nice guys and contact before wedding really helped put my mind at ease, all the guests loved them!”

10

“Penfold were amazing! They were a pleasure to deal with, punctual and provided first class entertainment all evening - the dance floor was never empty! We hope to secure them next year - recommend them 100%!!”

10

“These guys are great, BOOK THEM NOW! I'm sure the highlight of our wedding day should be the ceremony? exchanging of the rings? the I do bit? ...but for both of us, it's the epic dance-off that occurred! Thank you.”

10

“This band made our wedding!!! If you are booking a band for your wedding BOOK THEM it will be the best decision you make about your big day!!!!”

10

“Penfold performed at our Wedding and were fantastic! Literally from the start of the night to the end, the dance floor was never empty! We are always keen to be on the dance floor and like to strut our stuff but had no idea with the addition of live music it would be so popular for the whole night. We loved the choice of music available on Penfold's repertoire and felt they were really considerate of our preferred choices which we arranged in advance of our Wedding Day. The ultimate highlight for us and our guests was the Dance off?!! And reading the other reviews, we see this is not an uncommon trend!! It was brilliant, our friends and family are still talking about it, the competition between of boys vs girls got sassier with each go and everyone found it hilarious. Penfold brought heaps of entertainment to the evening and we will always treasure it as such a memorable occasion.”

10

“Guys, you were awesome last night at mine and Laura's wedding, the dance off was quality as was the rest of the performance! Thanks for being a massive part of our big day and playing a major role in making the wedding so fantastic!”

10

“Hi Penfold, just to say a huge thank you for performing at our wedding in Cheltenham on 1st October! You were great and the guests loved the music. The dance off was brilliant and could have gone on all night I think! Really appreciated going through everything on the phone a few days before too, we knew we were in good hands. I'd definitely recommend you for a great wedding band to get the party started! Thanks again.”

10

“Penfold performed at our wedding on the 10th September and they were AWESOME! The dance off had everyone involved and was great fun. If your thinking about booking them for your wedding I would definitely recommend them as they were absolutely fantastic. Thank you to all the band!”

10

“We just wanted to say thanks again for such a great set on Saturday night - we had a really good time and we've had lots of comments about just how good you guys were! You really made our day and evening. So thanks again.”

10

“We had Penfold band at our wedding in June, they were absolutely amazing, so many of our friends and family commented about how great they were!! I can highly recommend them!!”

10

“The band make contact 1 week before the event to go through any questions and to get a rough idea on song choices. They're very professional and were spot-on with all the song choices! The first dance song was performed perfectly. Each song was performed really well and all the guests have commented on how well the band went down.”

10

“We wanted to thank you and the band so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. You immediately got everyone on the dance floor and made the night great! We had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed your performance. You are all clearly very talented and feel very lucky that you were able to play for us. Thank you also for being so flexible with timings when we were running late and for our impromptu first dance!! You are great and will highly recommend you guys!”

10

“Had to write this before we go on our honeymoon as you were so great! We enjoyed our wedding day so much and it was brilliant to have you guys finish off our night with some brilliant sets! Everyone said the next day how good you were. The dance off was hilarious between the boys and girls and my last memory was crowd surfing to Bon Jovi... or was it The Proclaimers! I blame you for getting drunk in the last hour as we were having so much fun! Best wishes and thanks again!”

10

“Penfold were epic! Fantastic musicians and incredible entertainment. Everyone at our wedding had such a good time dancing and singing all night long. Their set list was perfect and had something for everyone. We just couldn't wait to hear what they were going to play next. Communication from the start was excellent and really helped us relax on the day knowing that everything would be in hand. Thanks guys.”

10

“We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so, so much for playing at our party on Saturday. You guys were absolutely incredible, encouraging everyone to get on the dance floor all night and all of our guests have commented on how fantastic you were. So thank you very very much - you really made the party!”

10

“We're back from honeymoon and just wanted to say a huge thank you to Penfold for helping to make our night absolutely magical at Dillington House on the 21st May!! You guys were so great from the beginning and had us dancing the night away!! We've also had a lot of compliments from our guests on how great you were and we LOVED the dance off!! Thank you again!”

10

“I just wanted to get in touch to say how great Penfold are! They did such a good job, were really professional and definitely got the wedding guests to have fun on the dance floor. The dance off was a particular highlight! We'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun live band with a varied repertoire. Thanks again to Penfold for helping to make our wedding so awesome!”

10

“A big big thank you to Penfold for an amazing evening at our wedding on 3rd September at Court Farm in Frome. Everyone had a brilliant time, I only left the dance floor once during the whole night! And as most of your other reviews state, the dance off was spot on!!”

10

“11/10 - Absolutely amazing! Penfold made our day, they are such a great band and had everyone up dancing. I can't recommend them highly enough - they were sensational and I couldn't have hoped for anything better, perfect!!”

10

“We thought Penfold were great, and we had lots of compliments about them from our guests. They were very responsive to how our guests reacted to different styles of music and were able to tailor their set accordingly... and of course they played really well! Thanks again for a great night!”

10

“We could not recommend Penfold enough! The quality of their performance was outstanding with their rendition of 'Sweet Child of Mine' (which is a difficult track to play and sing) was phenomenal! Penfold contacted us prior to the celebration evening to run through the details and gain an understanding of our music preferences, helping us to put our minds at ease knowing that everything was in place, allowing us to relax and enjoy the evening. The band played with constant enthusiasm despite some of the guests not being fuelled enough to dance until later in the evening, but nevertheless, this didn't deter them.”

10

“We had seen Penfold at my sister's wedding two years ago so our expectations were high and they didn't disappoint! They set up as quickly as possible, got everyone dancing (providing the best dance off ever!) and played some awesome music! Thank you!”

10

“They were excellent, so much better than we thought they would be, and we thought they'd be good from their demo... they got the crowd moving from the moment the first dance finished and they didn't stop dancing until the end. They even did a lads and ladies dance-off - amazing!”

10

“We were absolutely delighted with Penfold. They were very friendly in the run up to the wedding and on the day. They arrived and set up professionally. We had lots of compliments from our friends and family following their sets. They have a brilliant range of songs that suit all ages. Our guests loved the boy/girl dance-off. We would not hesitate to book them again. We would highly recommend for any occasion.”

10

“We were very satisfied with Penfold, we had such a good time, the band played some great songs and included other stuff to get everyone dancing, including a dance off between the men and women. They were very professional throughout and we couldn't have hoped for a better wedding band.”

10

“Penfold were FANTASTIC!!! The guys were friendly, approachable and polite. They played a real variety of music and got everyone dancing. Prior to the big day, they spent time discussing what we wanted with them and really listened to the type of music we liked/wanted. We cannot fault them at all and would happily recommend them!”

10

“We were extremely satisfied with Penfold, from speaking with them before the big day to the text I received a week after the wedding. The band arrived on time, set up quickly, and the quality of the musicians was exceptional. They really got everyone on the dancefloor and we have had many people say how impressed they were with Penfold since. Extremely interactive with the dancefloor and getting everyone involved. Penfold were also happy to take requests and we really couldnt have made a better choice. Would be happy to recommend them for any event!”

10

“We loved penfold!!!! They were very professional and communication was great between us and them. The music was fab and just what we wanted. Id definitely recommend them! Thank you so much guys.”

10

“Penfold are an absolutely fantastic band and we would thoroughly recommend them. The guys got everybody going and the musicianship was absolutely spot on throughout the night. They have a brilliant mix of genres, eras and a style that blends across a wide range of musical tastes - they have something for everyone. The pre-wedding call the week before made sure everything was in place and when they arrived they were hassle-free, got set up and then got cracking after the first dance. Penfold were the soundtrack to our wedding - and it was awesome!”

10

“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for performing at our wedding on Friday! You were AMAZING!!! You got everyone dancing and the dance-off was brilliant!!! Thank you so so much for helping make our day so perfect!”

10

“The most important thing to note about Penfold was that they got people up and dancing immediately - some extra keen people were dancing to the sound check! Great mix of music played with skill and charisma and the special rendition of 500 miles was brilliant. Also, extremely nice people.”

10

“Penfold were an outstanding wedding band, we are so glad we booked them. Thank you!”

10

“Penfold were absolutely amazing and made our Christmas party into such a great night! The band were so friendly and helpful too - absolute gents. Thanks a million guys. I would not hesitate in booking Penfold again. All the best.”

10

“The quality of the performance was superb. They got everyone moving and everyone from 20 - 60 had a great time listening and dancing. Their set was varied and seemed to go with what the crowd wanted which created an amazing atmosphere.”

10

“Hi guys, just wanted to say a massive thanks for playing at our wedding in London Zoo over the long weekend, everyone raved about you afterwards and said how amazing you were. Although we held you up for nearly an hour, your professionalism was great and the music was perfect, you had everyone dancing all night! Thanks again..”

10

“10/10! Penfold arrived on time. They set everything up as quickly as possible. Were all set to go for our first dance - no hanging about required. The band could not have been friendlier. The music was just what we wanted. The second set had everyone on the dance-floor. They kindly played a couple of encores as well to keep the crowd entertained once we (bride and I) had departed. Everyone has mentioned the music and the band in their letters/conversations about the day. Penfold were excellent!”

10

“Penfold were excellent! Their setlist stood out as varied and extensive, and their demo was very impressive. We had a good discussion beforehand about timings and everything was done extremely professionally on the day - prompt arrival, setup and really got the guests going on the dancefloor - and kept them there all night! We had many compliments on the band, especially queries as to where we'd found them! Thanks to all of them for a great night!”

10

“Penfold were absolutely brilliant. Very accommodating to any changes we had to make and they had people on the dance floor immediately they started their first set. They played a perfect range of music to suit the audience, thank you.”

10

“Brilliant! Totally satisfied and beyond. The guys were accommodating when we fell behind schedule and were totally professional throughout. Musically they were spot on and even the venue commented on how good they were.”

10

“The band were absolutely fantastic. The dance floor was filled throughout the night. The band tailored the song list to what the audience liked and played requests when asked. They contacted me prior to the wedding, were informative and extremely helpful. On arrival they were efficient, on time and setting up promptly. Every guest commented on how brilliant the band were and asked where they came from! Would highly recommend Penfold for any special event!”

10

“The guys were awesome, really cool and set the scene! We gave them a list of recommended songs which they gratefully played and also played some extras to co-incide with the mood of the evening!”

10

“Penfold were amazing! We were so impressed with their professional manner, they were punctual, organised and helped set up our first dance track on their laptop before they began their set. The sample tracks on the website don't actually do them justice! They are a highly talented group that get everyone on the dance floor. They make all the songs their own and make everyone happy with their mix of '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and tracks from today. They even got a dance off going between the men and women! Awesome fun!”

10

“Hi guys, just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing such a fantastic set at our wedding. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you! You were great!”

10

“The act were absolutely fantastic - they are extremely talented musicians who really look the part and engage with the audience - I danced to every tune! They wore us all out :)”

10

“Penfold were absolutely brilliant - couldn't fault them, such nice guys! Judged the crowd perfectly in terms of music choice (we gave them a pretty open brief!) and kept everyone packed onto the dance floor all night. Really slick set up and sound test, and the music they sorted out for us between sets was bang on. Choosing a wedding band was really stressing us out until we found these guys and they didn't let us down - they're ace. Just book them!”

10

“Penfold were fantastic! They played an array of songs. Some for the oldies and some indie songs for the young ones! They had everyone up dancing and everyone commented at how good they were. They were very relaxed and nothing seemed to bother them. Before the day they asked us to select songs from a playlist. We asked if they could play "with a little help from my friends" as a last song, even though they didn't know it they took the time to learn it and it went down a storm! They even allowed the groom to play a song that he had written about me! Overall cant fault them. 10/10 :)”

10

“We can not thank Penfold enough! They really helped to make our wedding day that bit more special. From the moment they arrived, their professionalism did not go unnoticed. They set up quickly without guests being aware and from the moment they started their sound checks they had guests on the dance floor. The dance floor was not empty at any point throughout the evening. They managed to cater for all ages and really knew how to work the audience. We will recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone we know that wants a band!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!”

10

“Penfold were absolutely fantastic, a truly professional and pleasant group of guys who wrapped up our wonderful wedding day with a fun selection of music which got everyone at our reception up on their feet! Not only did they sound great, they were also very friendly and put the Bride and I at ease knowing we had a group who wanted to put on a great show and always had our best interests in mind.”

10

“Hi guys, just wanted to say a massive thanks for playing at our wedding in London Zoo over the long weekend, everyone raved about you afterwards and said how amazing you were. Although we held you up for nearly an hour, your professionalism was great and the music was perfect, you had everyone dancing all night! Thanks again.”

10

“Penfold were fantastic! They rang a week or so before the big day - he was so easy to talk to; he listened to our requests and (based on those) ran through the playlist making alterations according to our music preferences. They accommodated our first dance request, learn't our favorite song by REM, allowed us to use the microphone for speeches and used our iPod for music in between sets. Penfold liaised directly with the coordinator at London Zoo, they were punctual and really good fun on the night. They judged our guests perfectly, initiating a sing-off and a dance-off which went down really well :) There was quite a wide age group and Penfold managed to satisfy all music preferences by playing songs from a range of decades!!”

10

“Penfold were absolutely fantastic! They had everyone up and dancing from the first song to the last. The 'dance off' that the band instigated went down a storm! Great set list, great musicians. Would recommend them to anyone.”

10

“Absolutely superb. Surpassed expectations in every respect! The band were punctual, professional and talented. Great range of songs.”

10

“Penfold were brilliant they created the right atmosphere for our wedding right from the outset. Brilliant song choices at the right times meant that the guests had a great evening. We'd recommend them without hesitation.”

10

“10/10 - Penfold were SUPERB, totally rocked...great musicians with excellent vocals....full of charisma, flexible to our own requirements and v.affable and helpful to deal with. Helped make our wedding including reception an 'if Carlsberg did weddings' affair. Got the whole wedding party up and dancing the night away from start to finish....never seen so many smiling faces on a dance floor...the only bad part was when they had finished their final song for the evening!”

10

“I have received your email about feedback about Penfold and can only say that they were brilliant. The dance floor was full from the start to finish of every set. Nearly every person there commented how good they were. We had one guest that said to me and the wife that she normally goes home from weddings at 9.00pm but it was the best wedding she had been to and she stayed to the very end and danced all night long. It must have been down to the band. I would recommend Penfold to anyone who is having a function. Matt made everything so easy and took charge of the whole night regarding what music to play and when. If ever we have another special function I would probably use Penfold again. You must be running a good company if you can get acts like Penfold on your books. Your help has been much appreciated.”

10

“Exceptionally satisfied. A very talented band, with a fun approach who created a real party atmosphere during the evening of our wedding. Professional in their set up and look there was absolutely no hassle in booking them or on the evening. Penfold delivered 3 great sets and responded happily to calls of 'encore'. They knew exactly what tracks to play to keep the party going and keep people on the dancefloor despite it being the hottest day of the year. A GREAT BAND. Wouldn't hesitate to book them again.”

10

“Penfold were absolutely brilliant! They surpassed all our expectations. Right from the start they had the party rocking and the dance floor was packed. They played all the songs we requested and even incorporated a couple that were not on their original list. They arrived early, set up discreetly and were totally charming. Led by the wonderful Matt they were outstanding and I would have no hesitation in recommending them or booking them again myself. Thanks boys for making Stephen's birthday special!”

10

“Penfold were a fantastic band to have at our wedding. They were really friendly and engaging when they arrived. With some of our special requests for the music they would play and for using an iPod of music during the intervals, they were more than happy to accommodate. They even stayed later until midnight to play Happy Birthday for the bride. All of them were brilliant musicians, and got the right balance in terms of sound and style to get people dancing and really enjoying the music. The dance floor was packed throughout and it was a perfect way to finish our special day. Afterwards so many people complemented us on how good Penfold were, and asked where we found them. I would definitely recommend Penfold for a future wedding/event they were exactly what we had been looking for.”

10

“We were extremely pleased with Penfold - they were fantastic and gave us exactly the feel we wanted for our wedding. The acoustic set they performed in the afternoon was fantastic and our guests loved the feel it gave during our afternoon reception drinks. The evening set was brilliant and great mix of music during the three sets and they played amazingly. My 11 year old cousin sang a couple of songs with the band and she loved every minute of it - I can't thank the guys enough for allowing her to perform with them. The guys were so friendly and chatted to the guests in between sets and it was lovely chatting to them at the end of the evening - I would certainly recommend them again.”

10

“Penfold were excellent, they catered for all the age groups which ensured that there were always people on the dance floor.”

10

“We booked Penfold for our wedding at the end of July. They were absolutely brilliant. We sent them a collection from their repertoire .of which sort of songs we would like to hear, along with a couple we really wanted too. They were able to build a playlist around this and did not disappoint. The song selection was spot on. The only time people sat down was in the interval to get a rest! They were totally professional, and sounded amazing. This was important to us as we love live music. We would highly recommend this band to anyone, we had so many good comments from our guests. Five Stars!”

“Hi Beverley, everything went perfectly thank you. The band were very professional and we had some great comments from our guests. I would recommend Function Central to our friends and we would recommend Penfold as they were a good band who had everyone on the dance floor. Thanks again for your help in making our wedding day so special.”

“Penfold ... Well what can I say! We were absolutely blown away with their performance! The chaps played everything we wanted and amazingly well! The energy and enthusiasm they had just helped make it a fantastic party! I dont think there was any point from the time they got on the stage to the time they packed up when there weren't plenty of people dancing on the dance floor! They were truly awesome!!! :-) Literally most of the guests commented on how good they were and some friends of ours even booked them there and then for their upcoming wedding (which they already had a DJ booked for and later cancelled!!)”

“We hired Penfold to play at our wedding and were very pleased with their professionalism from start to finish. Function Central provided a personal service, which catered to all of our requests and enabelled us to organise our evening music in a quick, hassle free manner. Penfold arrived smartly dressed and set up with minimal disturbance to our guests. In no time, they were playing our first dance which they learnt and adapted especially for us. Our guests were treated to an excellent mix of classic and modern tunes which kept them dancing throughout the evening. The band are clearly a talented group of young professionals, with many of our guests commenting on their ability and flair when performing! At one point the band gathered all of our guests to the dancefloor and invited myself and my husband to perform a spontaneous, upbeat dance for all of our friends and family to enjoy - much to our suprise! Thank you again to Penfold for providing us with such wonderful music!”

10

“A huge thank you to Penfold for performing at our wedding - and an even bigger thank you for adapting to the noise limiter and for adjusting your set accordingly. Our guests all commented on your professionalism and the fact that you are excellent musicians!”

“Penfold played at a 40th birthday party for my wife and I. It was largely a reunion of old college mates with many people who we had worked with over the years. The band members were very friendly from the moment they arrived and had the right balance of professionalism and fun throughout. They were accommodating in building the setlist around a number of songs that we chose from their playlist. They were very good at keeping the tempo right and improvised in a number of songs to make it more interactive (which might sound a bit naff, but was great fun). A really nice bunch of blokes who were very laid back and kept the crowd singing and dancing for most of the night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”

“We were so impressed with Penfold - they were incredible and had everyone young and old dancing non stop! They really were brilliant and we are very grateful to you guys for recommending them, they were a real highlight of the day. DJ Adrian was also fantastic and played everyone's requests all night! We will definitely be recommending Function Central to everyone we know!”

“Penfold recently played at our Officer Mess Christmas Ball and were brilliant. It was the 5th time they had appeared at a function I had attended and once again their sets were superb. They got everyone up and dancing within minutes and kept the atmosphere alive and kicking until the early hours of the morning. Given that one time they played was at my wedding and another 2 when I was best man I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who wants a live band to make their party a night to remember.”

10

“The band - Penfold, were absolutely amazing! They are lovely guys and did a great job. Lot's of our guests commented on how good they were, and a number have asked for their contact details for events of their own. They cover a brilliant range of songs and had everyone up dancing from beginning to end. Steve - the DJ was also really good. He played the exact mix of music we wanted and had everyone up dancing until early hours of the morning. He too was a really nice guy and made our party the success it was. Between the two, I don't think there was a minute when the dance floor didn't have people on it. Which in my mind is the sign of a great wedding and great party. I would re-hire both and definitely use the Function Central website again. I have recommended it to a number of people as had nothing but good service from everyone involved.”

10

“We just wanted to send you a quick email to say a huge thank you for all your help with finding us a band and a DJ to play at our wedding. We were so impressed with Penfold - they were incredible and had everyone young and old dancing non stop! They really were brilliant and we are very grateful to you guys for recommending and booking them for us. They were a real highlight of the day and we were so pleased. DJ Adrian was also fantastic and played everyone's requests all night which was great. We will definitely be recommending Function Central to everyone we know!”

“We booked Penfold to play at our wedding reception based on their wide repertoire and they did not disappoint! The dance floor at our venue wasn't big enough as they catered for all ages and they even learnt our first dance song without us knowing and only a weeks notice of the song we were having. The guys in the band were really friendly before, during and after the gig so if you want a top covers band to keep the dance floor jumping all night long then look no further. The service from Function Central was excellent as they were prompt to deal with any queries we had prior to the event.”

10

“I just wanted to let you know how brilliantly Penfold performed at our wedding on 15 April. From start to finish they sounded amazing. They performed our first dance and last dance and were so energetic and enthusiastic throughout the night. The floor was always packed and I danced my legs off. No wonder I felt so tired at the end of the evening! I would thoroughly recommend them for any age group and any occasion. They were quite simply superb and without doubt made what was already a fantastic day into something even more special. Thanks also to you at Function Central for sorting everything out.”

10

“Penfold were brilliant at our wedding. The music they played offered something for everyone and the dance floor was always packed. We were also extremely grateful that they took time to learn our first dance.”

10

“We wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding at Orchardleigh House on the 16th August. You guys really did go down a treat, everyone was commenting afterwards on how good you guys were and you really kept everyone on the dance floor all night!! Brilliant song choices, great sound, we will definitely recommend you guys. Thanks again.”

“Penfold played during the evening party for my daughter's wedding day. The guests were a mixture of ages and musical tastes, but the dance floor was full all night. Never once did we have to urge people onto the dance floor. Penfold were so popular that at the end of their set performance time, the guests were on the dance floor chanting for an encore, and although it was late, Penfold did a few more songs. Penfold played all the songs we had chosen from their long and varied playlist. The quality of singing and instrument playing was really good. The guys themselves were friendly and accommodating. I cannot recommend them enough and I would definitely book them again for any more special family parties.”

10

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Penfold for playing at our wedding on Saturday. You were AMAZING!! We had so many compliments from the guests and the hotel staff both about the music and the band themselves. Everyone loved you. The guys are all so talented, the choice of music was perfect and the dance floor was never empty from start to finish what more could we ask. You really made the day extra special and I am so grateful to you for that.”

10

“Penfold were fantastic! They kept the dance floor packed the whole night and played everything we requested and more. They were also very good about complying with our venue's request to set up early. We only wish the night could have carried on for longer as no one wanted to stop dancing!! Service from Function Central was also fab and we would highly recommend them.”

10

“Penfold were awesome. We had first heard them at a friend's wedding, playing in a marquee where they had the whole crowd jumping. We really wanted to have them play at our wedding as well, though we were worried as the room was much smaller than a marquee. If anything they were even better. The music really suited our tastes and even our parents were dancing (not a common sight). Would I listen to them again - yes; would I book them again - hell yes.”

10

“Penfold played at our Christmas Ball and they were absolutely fantastic. They arrived early and were very friendly. They sounded even better live than their soundbites that I downloaded. The audience didn't want them to leave at the end - so thank you for playing a little longer. Would I recommend them - most definitely!”

10

“Jonny has asked me to come back to you in regards to comments on Penfold. Well we thought they were absolutely great. They really made the evening reception go with a bang and all of guests commented on how fantastic they were. Thoroughly nice guys that could not do enough for you leading up to and during the event. A few people even commented that they thought we knew the band personally as they were so personable. If we have another party we'll definitely use them again and recommend them to all of our friends and family. We've added a few pictures of the day - there are lots more if you need them.”

10

“Penfold were excellent and I'd have no hesitation in recommending them. They were extremely professional, arriving and setting up in the narrowest of time slots without any need for supervision. They played 3 sets, each one capturing our guests and keeping the dancefloor full all night long. All of our guests have since commented on how good the band were, often before they commented on how nice the wedding itself was (much to my wife's distraction!) If they have any potential clients who would like a direct reference I'd be more than happy to give one.”

10

“Penfold were fantastic, providing a vast array of songs from all the eras we were interested in. They also took requests and didn't let anything faze them. Thanks for helping to make our wedding an incredible day for us and our guests.”

10

“I'll keep this brief as this is very easy to say...thanks Penfold for helping to make our day so special, simply put they were brilliant and surpassed all our best expectations. The three sets worked perfect and the dancefloor was packed the entire time from the most senior members of our family and friends to the youngest. The band were super professional and worked with us prior to the day to make sure everything on the day went smoothly. The playlist was brilliant and catered for everyone's taste and technically the guys are fantastic musicians with amazing vocals. We have also lost count of the amount of guests who without prompting commented on how amazing Penfold were and how they made the evening part of the wedding reception such high energy and fun. Thank you Penfold and we are now looking for another occasion to use you!!”

“We booked Penfold to play at our wedding reception at Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry in August of this year. The day went really well and the band arrived as planned and set up. After approximately 1 to 1.5 hours of great music and everyone dancing there was a power cut across the grid but Coombes backup generator failed and we were left with no power and just candlelight. This is when Penfold came into their own. Luckily a guest had brought an acoustic guitar and Penfold carried on the show with a lot of help from everyone at the wedding, If anything it made the night more interesting for everyone there. The lads stayed till the end and people comment all the time about what a great time they had having a good old fashioned sing along. I would recommend Penfold to anyone who wants a good, very versatile band who won't throw the towel in when there?s a hitch. Thanks for a fantastic night.”

“We booked Penfold at very short notice. It was with your assistance that helped find a band that suited our needs. The admin was handled speedily and efficiently. This was our first visit to your agency and I can, without any hesitation, state that the service you gave was first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending you. As for the band, they were fantastic. Whilst we ran behind a bit on their booked slot, they proved extremely flexible and set up with minimum fuss. Their music was great and kept guests on their feet. My friends and family (which is big) have attended many weddings over many years and without exception, all commented on the fantastic day, which was enhanced in no small part, by the band Penfold. Great bunch of lads to talk to and very professional and excellent musicians. The music they selected proved very popular and crossed the ages. Excellent job - please pass on our sincere thanks to your staff and Penfold for helping Keely and Anthony's day so special.”

10

“We've been meaning to write to say that Penfold were excellent as a 3 piece. They were great, everyone commented how good they were and they kept the dancefloor full the whole night - not only our friends but also our parents. We hadn't given them a great deal of direction on what we wanted but they pitched it perfectly. They were also very organised - we only remembered we'd better check on them 15 mins before they were supposed to be on and there they were all set up and ready to go.”

10

“Dear Sirs, a note to say what a great time we had with the band when they played at my sons wedding last Saturday .....they were just great .....very pleasant to deal with , accomplished musicians and they really helped the day finish on a great big high ....we thanked then on the evening but I would be pleased if you could pass my thanks on once again .....regards”

“We hired Penfold for our wedding day and were not disappointed. The band were amazing, very professional and even accommodated our needs when asked to learn the lyrics to our first dance request! Our guests loved them and could not stop talking about them! We would highly recommend them. Thanks Penfold for making our day so special”

10

“What a great way to end a fantastic day! Penfold were everything we expected and more. They did a great job of learning our first dance in a short period of time, what a great bunch of guys! I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Everyone commented on how great the band were and the variety of songs pleased everybody. Alistair Lion was incredibly helpful and would certainly use Function Central again in the future. Thanks so much for helping make our day even more special.”

10

“Penfold were everything we wanted for a band to entertain everyone at our wedding. The tunes were fantastic and got everyone up on the dance floor throwing some impressive shapes! I've been asked by many who were there who the band were and comments aplenty about how great they were. I only hope that at some stage we have a good excuse to hire them again.”

10

“Penfold played at our wedding on May 10 and were exceptional. Peter, the frontman, was extremely friendly and accommodating in the build-up and on the day itself. We had agreed for them to play two sets with a break in the middle, but as dinner ran over (by an hour!) they were forced to begin late through no fault of their own. Without making any fuss at all they got up and played a two-hour set without a rest. Complete pros! What is more, they were absolutely fantastic. Many guests commented on how good the music was and the dancefloor was packed all evening. I would highly recommend them. Many, many thanks.”

10

“We had a lovely day that was topped off perfectly by the evening. The band were absolutely fantastic - they really really made the night. They had everyone up on the dancefloor all night. So many of our guests commented on how good they were and wanted to know where we'd found them from. The highlight for us both was definitely their last song though - the memory of having virtually every single one of our guests surrounding us on the dancefloor stamping their feet and clapping their hands as the band sang 500 miles by The Proclaimers will be one we remember for a very long time! I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you.”

10

“Hi Mike, I did mean to email and say thanks so apologies for not getting round to it sooner! We thought Penfold were excellent. They played a really good mix of songs and kept everyone on the dance-floor all night! Our guests all commented that they sounded great and they really made our night! I just wish they had been able to play for longer as the evening went so quickly. Please can you pass on our thanks for making our wedding so enjoyable!”

10

“A brief note to thank you for the excellent entertainment you provided on Saturday last (disco + Penfold). Without exception everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and throughout the age range (5 to 85). I have heard nothing but praise - Penfold were brilliant! Thanks again”

10

“Fantastic band made the night what it was! Enjoyed by everyone - parents and teenagers. Thanks for all your energy and also your patience before the performance. Hope to have an excuse to use you again soon!!”

10

“Hi Mike, next time you see the band that we hired could you give them a big thank you, they were brill, they got us all up dancing and they played all the classic hits, everybody thought that they were great, and they really made the night. Once again thanks for everything.”

10

“Dear Mike and Alistair, many thanks for booking Pete and the guys for us last Thursday evening for our company Christmas party at Cafe Royal. They played up a storm and had everyone burning up the dancefloor, even inspiring some japanese crazylegs to appear. They certainly played the set to suit the audience age and cultural range and we couldn't have asked for better ;o)”

10

“Penfold were very polite and professional to deal with in the planning and on the night which made our lives a lot easier when we had so much to organize. Everybody at our wedding really enjoyed Penfold's performance, especially us. A lot of our guests commented on how great they were; many noted that the lead singer sounded like the original in every cover they did. We had a full dance floor all night, the atmosphere they created was fantastic and for that we cannot thank them enough. We can certainly recommend them to anybody looking for a band, with their varied playlist we could not have wished for anyone better!”
