Yes - Always either 1 or 2 singers from the video/s. We work with several ace frontmen which are all featured in the different videos inside our profile. Depending on the line-up you choose, we will suggest the best frontmen, or you can request a lead you liked from any video.

Do you have different line up options?

7pc = 2-3 Vocals, sax, trumpet, guitar, keys, bass, drums

What if my timings change after I’ve booked you?

When you book with us, we keep that date & time in our diary just for you. We understand that timings for any event can vary and always remain as flexible as possible within reason, while communicating with you prior to and throughout the event. Please note: Additional fees may apply for finishing after midnight (in line with Musician Union regulations).

Can you provide an ipod/DJ service before and between your sets?

All our bookings include a bespoke DJ playlist service throughout the event, tailored with all your song requests. Live DJ sets are also available at a special price.

How much time do you need to setup?

4-5pc = 2hr

5-6pc = 2-3hr

7-8pc = 3hrs

9-10pc = 3-4hrs

* Generally the earlier we can get in the better

* Timings vary based on the amount of lighting required

* Setup is normally quiet, besides the last 15-30min of sound check

* When dining & entertainment happen in the same hall, some venues supply a divider screen for the band to setup behind during meal

Do you roam around & Engage with guests while you perform?

Our lead singers & saxophone players always engage with the crowd on the dance floor, and sometimes even the guitarist. If you’re looking for a proper roaming-band then we can offer a stripped-down acoustic and portable version of the band. Message us for more details.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

You can select ALL your songs, and even select some songs which aren’t on our list. We love learning new songs, and ensuring your show is fully-tailored and unique to your event.

Is all of the equipment PA & lighting included in your quote?

Indeed. Remember, bands can only sound as good as the amplification they’re playing through. That's why we use PAT tested high-end amplification, as well as party, stage & mood lighting with a dedicated engineer, to ensure everything looks & sounds just right all throughout your event.

* Make sure to ask your venue whether or not they use a noise limiter.

Can you learn a song request before the event?

Yes. Learning new songs keeps us quick on our feet and keeps our repertoire fresh. This will normally be free of charge.

* In case you have an exceptional request (i.e song arrangement for a large band or a large number of songs especially prepared) we may have to charge a bit extra.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients tend to rave about the band’s high level of showmanship & crowd engagement, as well as our warm & friendly approach, bespoke service and special attention to detail.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Wedding venues, hotels, members clubs, sports clubs, theatres, bars, restaurants, festivals, markets, fairs.

Which artists have you been mostly influenced by?

Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder, Motown, James Brown, Aretha Franklin.

What is the most high profile gig you’ve performed?

Hurlingham Club, Hospital Club, Bloomberg, KPMG, TEZENIS to name a few.

Lilac and Remko rock! Absolutely one of the highlights of our day was seeing a kick-ass 8 piece get the whole room dancing to our Motown inspired playlist. They helped with curation to ensure we picked the right floor-fillers and chucked in a couple of modern classics and a vocal cameo from one of our guests in, too.

We really can't recommend them enough. Everything was smooth and our day was honestly even better because of them.

After being let down by our usual band, Lilac was kind enough to secure a last-minute band for our 2018 New Year's Eve celebration, which we appreciated wasn't easy. The band was just what we needed. The dance floor was full all evening and bar earnings doubled from the previous year well before midnight. I warmly recommend this high class act.

Thank you Lilac, Remko and the wonderful musicians for putting on such a stand-up show in every respect. We couldn't have asked for better entertainment for our calibre of clientele. I would recommend your services to anyone interested in a quality soul-Motown band.

We booked Funk With Us for our 30th wedding anniversary and the band completely exceeded our expectations. We were hoping to find a band that would play our favourite hits from when we first met and the band made an effort to include those songs in their set. Our guests especially loved how engaging both singers were, with the odd friend taking the mic and the lead! We are very happy for booking Funk With Us and will definitely recommend them to our friends.
