“Very satisfied! Two great sets. The band were professional and the lead singer outstanding.”

Mark, Wedding, Kent, April 2019

“The band they were simply incredible! The lead singer was amazing and really got the whole party started. Without the band it would have been just another wedding do. So many people commented on how good the band was not only from a singing perspective but the music also. The variety of songs also went down really well and they catered for everyone at our party. From start to finish their professionalism was first class. I can't thank them enough!”

Terry and Michelle, Wedding, May 2019

“We had a great night, danced all the time, and just enjoyed ourselves. All our guests enjoyed the music, and many complimented us on our choice of band, and especially the lead singer. Your service at Function Central was excellent, very straight forward, prompt, courteous, and re-assuring. Thanks for a great occasion!”

Adrian & Liz , Wedding, Cheshire, May 2019

“You were absolutely amazing! The lead singers voice is just fantastic. They got everybody up dancing and played a great mix of songs. My husband and I are so happy that we chose them to play at our wedding as I really think they made the evening and we had comments from so many people saying how great the band were. We are now trying to think of what we could celebrate next so that we could have them playing for us again! I would say to anyone trying to find a band for their celebration, look no further - pick these guys!!”
