ABOUT US

A young and vibrant function band, Charlie and the Funk Factory are the perfect fit for your event!

Playing covers of classic songs by the likes of Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder and Bruno Mars, this nine piece ensemble will get your party started.

The band consists of a talented female vocalist, brass and rhythm section. Over several years we've built a great reputation nationally, performing at events up and down the country (and even overseas). We've played at corporate events hosted by major companies such as BP, at weddings and for private parties. Funk Factory’s diverse grounding, with members operating in a host of musical genre, allows for flexibility on music choice for your special day, with a vast repertoire, ability to provide a stripped back jazz small-band ensemble for a more intimate experience, and requests in advance.

Take a look at our sample set-list and do listen to our recordings. Don't hesitate to get in touch to book the band that will bring your event to life!

Booked Charlie and the Funk Factory for a Company Party
5.0   Verified review

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for performing at Connect's Christmas Party last Friday held at The Hilton Metropole Hotel.

You were absolutely amazing and made the evening so special! Everyone loved you and you kept the dance-floor full for the whole night.

You even made an effort to add to our 1920's party theme, which was very thoughtful and we greatly appreciated.

You're immensely talented and all such lovely people, I would highly recommend you to anyone :)

Thanks again!
