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. The band's frontman is not only an outstanding vocalist, but also skilled at turning a party around and whipping up the crowd into a frenzy.

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.

“Penfold were fantastic, the dancefloor was never empty through their live and DJ set.”

Katie & Tom, Wedding, St Bart's Brewery in London, July 2019

“Highly recommend Penfold! They got everyone up dancing even with a girls vs boys dance off. Me and my husband has the best night ever dancing the night away with friends and family.”

Claire, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, August 2019

“Penfold contacted both me and my husband to check our music preferences. I was really pleased that their set list was based heavily on what we both liked. Penfold were excellent with the crowd and really good fun. I couldn’t recommend a band higher!”

Kerry, Wedding at Rayleigh Cricket Club, Essex, July 2019

“Thank you! It was amazing and you were great! Thank you so much. When I look back I think Steve and I made some great choices, and one of them was definitely you guys! We loved the boy v girls dance off – though I’m still a little traumatised by the last ‘full monty’ dance.”

Nina, Wedding in London, August 2019

“We couldn’t have been more pleased with Penfold!! Our original band booking had to pull out at the last minute due to a family issue and Function Central were super at quick and professional at finding us a replacement. Penfold got in touch promptly to see what music we wanted and learnt our first dance song in 5days! They were really good fun, great with the crowd and got everyone on the dance floor. We particularly enjoyed the dance off! The lead singer had a fab voice and they covered a huge range of tracks. We had loads of positive feedback from our guests. Thank you!!! Alice and Alex”

Alex & Alice, Wedding in Rutland, July 2019

“Firstly we want to say Penfold were fantastic. The set was great, they got the crowd going and were nothing but professional throughout - from start to finish. We really couldn't have asked for a better band to play on our Big Day. Secondly, the band leader was brilliant. He went above and beyond - both liaising before the event and on the night. We cannot recommend Penfold highly enough.”

Danielle & Lee, Wedding, Stockbrook Manor, Essex, July 2019

“We enjoyed it so much. Thanks again for playing such an amazing set. People really enjoyed it so so much, especially the guys vs girls dance off. You were brilliant.”

Gunther, Wedding in Surrey, June 2019

“The booking process was very smooth & any questions were answered quickly. The band themselves, Penfold were absolutely brilliant! They made our night & have had many comments since on how great they were, would happily book again!”

Adam & Francesca, Wedding, Latimer Estate in Buckinghamshire, May 2019

“Penfold were absolutely fantastic! You made our night, our guests loved it we’ve had so many comments on the music and the dance off (awesome idea). You nailed it and we were so genuinely happy with how it went. We’d happily use you guys for future events or recommend to friends.”

Franky, Wedding, May 2019

“Great act - really engaged with the audience.”

Katie, Corporate Event, Osea Island in Essex, May 2019

“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 demos. 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!”

Anthony, Christmas Ball, December 2018

“Function Central and Penfold responded quickly to our queries before the event and were very friendly throughout. Penfold impressed our guests with their play list and playing. They really got the party going. Everyone had a fabulous time.”

Sally & Mark, 125th Birthday Party at Bisham Abbey, Buckinghamshire, November 2018

“Band and service were excellent from start to finish!”

Charlie & Melanie, Wedding, Burley Manor in Hampshire, October 2018

“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!!”

Joseph and Lucy, Wedding, Dorset, October 2018

“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.”

Charlotte and Chris, Wedding, Berkshire, September 2018

“We are so glad we booked Penfold for our wedding! They were so much fun!!! All of our guests said how amazing they were, and such lovely guys too. They certainly know what to do to get everyone up and dancing! Thank you so much Penfold.”

Elly & Scott, Wedding, Brasted's in Norfolk, August 2018

“Simply phenomenal act - excellent quality of performance and all lovely folk to have around the party. Impressive range of material to choose from - really could not fault these guys - top notch in every respect.”

Jamie, Wedding, August 18

“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.”

Ailsa and Jamie, Wedding, Berkshire, August 2018

“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 yeah.”

Ben, Wedding, Cambridgeshire, August 2018

“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.”

Jonny and Emma, Wedding, Berkshire, June 2018
