Not a week goes by without one of our guests remarking on that amazing band we had, and we proudly tell them more about you all.
You all had exactly the right blend of friendly professionalism and are all so very talented, looking like you were enjoying every minute, as our guests were!
When we found the signed set list it truly was the icing on the cake of your performance. Thank you all so much for everything you put into our night.

Thank you very much for the superb performance given by Funk Soul Brother at our wedding reception on 26th September. Many of our guests have told us what a great band they thought you were and we would echo that sentiment.
Thank you for your help during the many conversations and emails which we had in the lead up to the wedding. It was great that you were able to talk us through the detailed issues to be considered and bring clear thought to bear on them, and that you were prepared to go over a number of issues several times without losing patience!
The musicianship which you all demonstrated on the day was very impressive. Your instinct about the timings on the day and choice of pieces to play were spot on which meant that we all had a really great time.
Please extend our thanks to the whole band and crew.
With thanks and regards,
Neil and Katharine

Mike & Caroline Hammond - Party - 20 Sep 2015
We would like to thank you so so much for playing at our wedding in Cotterstock 3 weeks ago. You were absolutely incredible and certainly got the party started! The music was really important when planning our wedding and you certainly didn't disappoint. We are also so grateful that you were able to play our first dance song as it is definitely not the easiest song to sing, but it was fantastic and will be something we will never forget.
Everyone has been raving about you and we will be recommending you to everyone we know.
Thanks so much again.
Ollie and Charlotte
Ollie and Charlotte Butcher - Wedding - 27 Aug 2015
We are back from our honeymoon in Borneo and adjusting to normality again and just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for your incredible set at our wedding in Exton Park on the 18th July 2015.
We loved how relaxed and accommodating you were and your performance was out of this world. A band was always going to be one of the most important aspects of our day and after listening to your outtakes on-line and reading your philosophy you we had very high hopes. But you managed to exceed our very high expectations by a mile – your outtakes don’t do you justice as to how good you sound live… bags of talent and personality, a really tight sound and a cracking sound system.
I think you could tell on the night just how much our guests appreciated your performance and we hope that with such a receptive audience that you enjoyed playing the gig.
I think the godfather could sum it up far better than we could - you got soul and you’re super bad.
Jim and Nicola Cain
Jim and Nicola Cain - Wedding - 16 Aug 2015

Malcolm Edwards - Public Event - 11 May 2015
I've been meaning to ring you, it's been a bit crazy clearing all that snow!! Haha, I think we can safely say Narnia was a success and everybody LOVED the band.
Believe it or not it's very difficult to get me on the dance floor (let alone a stage), so that says a lot about the performance!!!
You're a really talented and fun bunch. I've honestly had the most feedback, with everyone saying the current songs such as Uptown Funk were fab, the vocals were spot on, and the saxophonist was amazing!
I'm absolutely thrilled with how it all went. Matthew and I would definitely book you again, and hopefully will get a chance to in the not too distant future. So chuffed that we'll get to see you again in September at our friends' wedding in Lyddington.
Thanks to all of you for the super entertainment.
You were fabulous!!
Many many thanks

Well, we are back from our honeymoon and again into the throws of reality. I just wanted to say we cannot thank you and the band enough for the fantastic performance on our Wedding day. Everybody was thrilled and absolutely loved you guys as we did. It was a flawless performance and brought the whole evening alive which is exactly what we wanted. The most asked question of the day definitely was 'Where did you find the band? they are awesome!!'

Hi Dave, Sarah and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your performance at our wedding. It was absolutely amazing and even better than our very high expectations.
