“I found Function Central to be a very good company to deal with and I particularly appreciated Alistair's early stages of negotiation with the band to help secure Plan B when they don't normally travel this far north for an event. I would recommend Function Central to anyone wishing to use an agency and I would definitely consider using them again myself if I required musicians for a future event. I used another agency at our wedding for a different set of musicians but I found them to be a bit 'sales-pitchy' at times and I suspect their cut was rather high! With Function Central there was no pressure and the tone of communication was always friendly and comprehensive, which meant I felt I was getting value for money using a third-party for the bookings and didn't feel the need to go to direct.”

My contact was kept to a minimum because Beverly was very trustworthy, and I left her to make sure my requests were delivered. Which she did perfectly well. The evening was a huge success. I can recommend Samurai Hat again. They arrived and set up with no fuss whatsoever - they were professional and certainly delivered and added to the evenings enjoyment.

“FC provided us with really good service, they always kept us informed and replied quickly to our emails!”

Jennifer, Wedding, Stroud

“From the booking process right through to the wedding day the band and Function Central were so efficient in making the booking and organising easy and hassle free. The band called us around 2 weeks before the wedding, I had a great conversation with Ryan who quickly put my mind at ease with all the band questions I had about the day. He was especially great when we had a random request that no Elvis was to be played during the wedding at all! (my dad is an avid music fan, hates Elvis, and as he was paying for them we had to oblige) I loved the way Ryan was so down to earth, and laughed at the random request just like the hubster and I did, yet they still happily obliged.”
