Mid-Winterball Gets Funked Up!

Published: 19 Feb 13, 10:23am  |  Author: DG Music

Funk Soul Brother
Funk and soul band Funk Soul Brother were chosen this year to perform for the first time at the Mid-Winterball held at Uppingham School. The event has been going for over 25 years and the band helped to make it one of the best yet!

Hosted in the beautiful setting of Uppingham School Memorial Hall, guests enjoyed a three-course meal before being treated to a night of first class musicianship and entertainment. Everyone danced the night away until the early hours of the morning! Funk Soul Brother delivered non-stop crowd-pleasers, with each song being executed perfectly. The band performed music by the likes of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and more. So, it’s no surprise that the audience was left screaming for more!

Being natural performers, the band made sure that their crowd was having just as much fun as they were on stage. Lead singers Adam and Anna Ross led everyone throughout the evening, and towards the end of the  second set started a fabulous dance routine that involved the whole audience.

‘This is the best band we’ve had in over 22 years of doing the event’ - Neil, Bar Manager.

‘Thanks for coming! Technically spot on in a venue with tough acoustics, thank you very much.' - Sarah Bell, Organiser

‘A fantastic night was had by all, the music was great! Think there have been lots of sore heads today but even more sore feet from all the dancing. Highly recommend FSB for anyone out there looking to book a band or go to an event.’ - Deborah Little, Organiser

Many of the players are multi-instrumentalists, and have performed with renowned bands around the world.
