ABOUT US

A young and enthusiastic 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. Having now performed together for several years, we have built a great reputation in the Midlands and further afield. We've played at corporate parties hosted by major companies such as BP, weddings and for private parties.

​We always try to accommodate our client's needs wherever possible and can provide a scaled down jazz ensemble for background music at drinks receptions or during meals, play requests (so long as we are informed prior to the event to arrange and rehearse the song), or perform with any other requirement you might have.

​Take a look at our set-list and listen to our recordings below. 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!
