Their collective experience as professional musicians is astonishing.

Sabrina has and continues to work with several bands of varying styles and has been a very successful private vocal tutor, session singer and songwriter. Sabrina also plays Piano, Guitar, Bass and Drums.
She has performed in prestigious venues across the country including, The Royal Albert Hall, Theatre Royal and The London Palladium.
Sabrina is also a graduate of performing arts and contemporary popular music Tech Music School in West London

London born guitarist, Ben, grew up around music and musicians, as his Dad was a session drummer at Abbey Road Studios.
Since taking up the guitar at the age of 12, he has grown up to become a published songwriter and session player with several album credits to his name, and has worked extensively across Europe and the USA, playing everywhere from restaurants and dive bars, to mental institutions and performance halls.

Cheeky Glaswegian drummer, Marc, is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Boston, USA.
After being awarded a full scholarship when he was 16 he went on to study at Leeds College, where he received his BA (hons) Jazz Studies.

Testimonials

Funktion made a brilliant day unforgettable. In the run up to our wedding things were pretty hectic and we left it to them to decide what to play. Thankfully they are very good at communicating over email so this meant we could relax about the evening entertainment at least.

Without doubt, they know what they are doing. They did many things beyond the call of duty. They were flexible when we didn't keep to schedule. They jammed with my uncle Nick in the second set. The singer even came onto the dance floor when she wasn't singing. It was clear that they were having a lot of fun which just added to the atmosphere.

So many of our guests told us how amazing the band was and how much fun they had dancing. Our friends will be talking about Funktion for years to come.

If you book this band you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much. Your performance was beyond our wildest dreams.

Gemma and Harry (Feb 2014)

We were in two minds whether to have a band for the evening as wed been to so many wedding where the band take centre stage Funktion were fantastic; they nailed the atmosphere; the floor was always packed with dancers rather than band viewers which is what we wanted on the day.

They made the best day of our lives even better. They were extremely well priced and we had so many of our friends say how fantastic they were.

David and Amy (Dec 2013)

Funktion provided excellent music for our London 2012 Olympic Games British Canoe Union & International Canoe Federation Slalom party at Waltham Abbey Town Hall in August 2012.

Relaxed, casual mood music greeted us at reception, with a fan fair for our awards ceremony, and a mix of classic rock and contemporary pop for the evening disco.

The band played the flexible music we wanted and helped create a great nights entertainment for all that attended.

We would certainly recommend them and use them again. Dont hesitate to book them!!

Mandy Delaney(PA to the Directorate, British Canoe Union)

My fiancee only gave me one job to take care of for our wedding - "sort out a band". Thank god I contacted these guys, as they gave us everything we wanted for our wedding day and then some. They played classy, instrumental, atmospheric background music in the afternoon while we had our dinner and then turned it up for the evening do, playing all the Rock/Pop classics we had requested. The musicians and their sound team were extremely approachable and totally professional throughout, and lets not forget these guys can seriously play. They were quite simply the best function band I have ever seen, by a country mile, and if the amount of compliments we received from our guests afterwards is anything to go by, 130 other people agreed with us. Thank you, Lee & Paula Appleton

Such a great band. Thank you for the amazing entertainment you provided for our party. Will Recommend you to EVERYONE. Having the chance to pick our own songs was such a bonus Steve Niklac

What a party.....What a band... Thanks for a great night guys Linda Butler

I saw these guys performing at my sons wedding and I was so impressed that I just had to have them play at my birthday party.
They were so professional and played all the Motown requests that I wanted. I thought it was such a great idea that the band gave me the option to pick my own songs. I cant recommend them highly enough and everyone that came to my party loved them just as much as I did. So, if youre needing a great band who play what you want then definitely get in touch with them and Im sure theyll sort out everything you need. Thanks again guys for a great night and see you same time next year for another amazing party!!!! Graham Appleton

Our party was amazing.. made all the better with you guys getting everyone
dancing all night... Michael Waite

Thank you soooooooooooo much for everything you done in the build up to the wedding and for putting on such a great nights music on the most perfect day ever!!!!
You really did provide us with everything we could have hoped for and more. From the pianist playing for the guests arriving and for our ceremony to the band playing three wonderful sets that kept us dancing all night.
We cant stop talking about how helpful, professional and more importantly, how good musically you all were. All our friends said the same thing. Thank you again, Craig & Helena

Thank you for making our event unforgettable. You guys rock. Tina Carlton
