Storming set from Funk Circus at our party last week. Pass on my thanks to Dan and the gang.

-Juliet Bromley Nov 2014

Excellent band, catering for all age groups. Would definitely not hesitate to book them again.

Funk Circus played at our wedding in Manchester and they were a class apart. They had the dancefloor packed and created a real party atmosphere that was enjoyed by all. They were amazing value for money and we have received endless positive comments from our guests. A big thank you to Funk Circus and Alex at LMM.

-David & Elena

Thanks again for booking Funk Circus for our venue. They were even better than we expected and had everyone in the place dancing or nodding along. They all looked cool and trendy which was important as we appeal to a young crowd and hope to have them back soon.

-Dan Leeds Masseys Bar

Brilliant band as you can see from the video...never had anything but praise from their performances.


Funk Circus performed at our wedding reception in Ilkley, West Yorkshire in August 2011. We live in London and see bands all the time and these guys were absolutely outstanding we got four tight sets with a great range of music (they even learnt a jive set especially!). Loud, high energy, fantastic singing and musicianship that had everybody dancing. About a dozen guests no joke came up to us during the night to say that the band were absolutely awesome, where did we find them etc. Excellent value for money, one of the best live funk bands I've seen at that price I can't get across on here how pleased we were with them. I would recommend Funk Circus to anyone.


"Hi Alex - Thank you so much for your help - you have been by far the most responsive and considered person I've dealt with throughout the whole wedmin process, so thanks for making our lives that much easier!
Best wishes and thanks again,
Chris" April 2011

"Alex, just a quick mail to say thanks for your help in booking Funk Circus and DJ Syd Edwards for my wedding earlier this year. Both were excellent and very professional, they worked together as if they played events with each other every week. Syd approached us at the start of the night to tell us that he would take care of everything inluding working out playists and timing with the band and he did not dissappoint. Whilst the band weee excellent and the centre of attention this was all held together by Syd. I'd certainly reccomend both to others. Would you pass on my thanks to Syd as I don't have an email address for him.
Thanks again. Andy." Sept 2010
