The Big Phat Phunction band is a unique function band due to its big line-up and wide-ranging repertoire. As well as playing favourite function songs (Brown Eyed Girl, Happy etc), we specialise in soul classics (Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin), Hippy tunes (Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin) and 80s cheese! With close to 100 songs in our repertoire and a band of professional musicians based at the RNCM we can accommodate virtually all function events.
We also have a partner band called the Indigo Jazz Ensemble (made up of all members of this band) which has a large repertoire of jazz standards with vocals, instrumentals, latin-jazz, jazz ballads and pop-jazz. This band can provide a band of 4-7 people and can be hired alongside the function band too!
Whether you want a small five piece band or the full eleven piece with four piece horn section, we are happy to provide hours of entertainment and can tailor the set to include personal favourites. We have previously performed at a post-concert gig for Courtney Pine and have played various function gigs across Manchester including several headline gigs at the RNCM and a number of weddings.
