ABOUT US

A lively 2-12pc band, specialising in Funk, Soul, Motown, Blues, Rock & Roll, R&B and Pop.

Established in 2017 Funk With Us consist of two internationally acclaimed performers and a strong ensemble of experienced musicians, all blessed with a super funky spirit. Our frontmen specialize in engaging the crowd and keeping your dance floor on fire.

Lilac Sheer - An established performer and multi-instrumentalist, toured the UK, Europe, US and the Middle East leaving fans spellbound by her powerful voice and strong conviction.

Feisal Bonciani - A veteran to worldwide stages, previously starred in Jesus Christ Superstar and other major musical productions, recently moved to the UK to rekindle his life long passion for Funk.

Our skilled musicians were handpicked to create a band with a real Funk, soul & Motown feel, a fresh spin on the nostalgic disco era.

Our bookings include a quality PA system & lighting, as well as a dedicated engineer who keeps making sure everything sounds just right throughout the show, so the band can concentrate solely on giving your guests an unforgettable experience.

Booked Funk With Us for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

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.
