Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“We could not have asked for a better band - they really made the evening, as we had hoped. The dance floor was packed from the first dance to the close. We received so much positive feedback from people through the night and since. The Confidentials helped to create a real party atmosphere, including tailoring their second set to further increase the crowd interaction and involvement. Could not recommend these guys highly enough. They were also a good set of chaps who were easily approachable and seemed genuinely pleased to be part of our special celebrations.”

Laura & Tom, Wedding in Chichester, August 2016

“The band were amazing. Everyone thought so too so thank you very much and thank the guys for me too. It was a fab evening.”

Helen, Private Party, Holiday Inn Brentford, January 2020

“From the beginning of finding a band to the actual event, everything was fantastic. You are never sure when you haven't used anything like this before but I have to say I was extremely impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending Function Central and the band, The Confidentials. On the night the band were superb. All our guests commented on how fantastic they were. They chose the right kind of music for the audience and we had loads of people dancing. They were very friendly and happy to make suggestions and listen to suggestions. A brilliant night, thank you.”

Sarah, 50th Birthday Party, Cheam Sports Club in Surrey, November 2019

“They were perfect!”

Rosemary, Wedding, Boat House Bistro in Kent, August 2019

“The band were amazing! They did a fantastic job with the song selection. They sounded great and added their own touch to the songs. Everyone was very impressed and keen to get on the dance floor.”

Vaishna & Sam, Wedding, Tortworth Court in South Gloucestershire, June 2019
