Testimonials

I was impressed even just by the snippets on the website I saw prior to booking. Live they were even better!Not only were they friendly, each member was exceptionally talented. The songs kept the dancefloor full all night, and it finished off our wedding day perfectly. Highly recommended. Thank you so much!

-Adam Brown


Just a note to say a huge thank you to you and the band for Friday night. You were fantastic and everyone has noted how much they enjoyed your music. Lots to learn from the event, but we already have the race course booked for next year. Man from Funkle have first shout on the headline slot?

We anticipate that the event will grow fourfold for next year so it will be another amazing night! Thus far we know that 300 women walked 2114 miles in three hours, raising just under £20,000 (That figure is set to rise over the next few weeks). I am sure that The Man from Funkle will be on the top of most peoples band lists for parties and functions over the next year.

Please pass our thanks on to the rest of the band and let me know about next year?

Kind regards
