Act Profile

The Funky Soul Band

The Funky Soul Band are a funk/soul covers band from the heart of London. Brought together when they all found themselves studying in London they discovered a mutual love for classic funk and soul music. Connected in their tastes by acts such as James Brown, Earth Wind and Fire, Average White Band, Tower of Power, and Aretha Franklin they soon realised they had the ingredients for a very funky band.

Since forming, The Funky Soul Band have developed a reputation for great live shows with tight, professional and very entertaining performances.

Individually, despite their youth, the band are very experienced and have played at some of Londons most prestigious venues, such as the Shepherds Bush Empire, Bush Hall, Indigo at the O2 and Bush Hall. They play with an energy that can only be described as electric and guarantee a musical treat every time they take to the stage.

"Thank you all so much for making our wedding night a night to remember! Everyone who was there has fed back to us how much they enjoyed it and I don't remember ever being at an event where practically everyone was up dancing the entire time! You were fantastic and I am sure our paths will cross again at some point in the future. ps thanks for giving Aaron some spotlight - he thoroughly enjoyed himself and it was wonderful for us as we rarely get to see him play!"
