We cannot recommend Uncle Funk highly enough. If you want your party to be a complete blast and to bask in compliments from your guests for months afterwards, book Uncle Funk now. Don't just take our word from it, here's some comments from our friends' thank you letters:-
"The band was sensational! What a scream and now I want a party so that I can have them to make me smile from ear to ear!" Bim, Herts
"Then there was the band... we haven't danced so much in years!" Guy and Alice, Cambs
"As for the band... what can I say? They were amazing and, having thought that I might run out of stamina, they had us all there at 2am still rocking..." Barry and Sarah, Beds
"The band was, as Francois (who is not liberal with compliments) said, the best that he has EVER heard/seen. I thought they were totally phenomenal. I think it is the only party I have been to where the dance floor cleared when the band had a rest and not the other way around!" Mark A, London
THANKS AGAIN for boogeying our world.

Thanks again KATIE LINE 40TH BIRTHDAY
"Uncle Funk is a unique band - great music, quality singing and superb outfits! We first saw them at another venue and thought if we ever had a party - they were the band for us. And how true that was last weekend as we celebrated a joint birthday/wedding anniversary event. All our guests were wow’ed by the group, from young 20 somethings to our 80-odd year old guest - getting everyone up on the floor. We would thoroughly recommend them. Our guests said they were ‘fantastic’, ‘fab’, ‘great’ and if we have another party - they’ll be our first port of call, again. If you like dancing and disco - this is the band for you. From: T&J”
Many thanks for a brilliant performance at Sophie's 50th on Friday, and for helping me to keep it a secret until the last minute. I will always treasure the look on Sophie's face when she walked into the bar and saw the band. Loads of people have commented on how much they enjoyed the Uncle Funk & Boogie Wonderband experience, and here is what Sophie asked me to pass on to you: "Dear Uncle Funk, You provided the most fabulous party surprise. I could barely walk the following day after dancing so hard and also sustained my first ever percussion-related injury through inexpert use of your spare tambourine! Many thanks for helping to make the evening truly wonderful! Sophie" Thanks again. I will be booking you for my 60th! SIMON KING - BIRTHDAY
Eamon and myself just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your crew for playing at our wedding.

You all helped make this a very special day for us ... your love heart cod piece has certainly been a topic of conversation in our house!!! Thank you all again (and please pass on our gratitude to the other Uncle Funk & Boogie Wonderband members).

Uncle Funk were brilliant, they made the evening, the disco floor was alive, I would definitely recommend them and if I was to have another party book them again, they were fun and at the same time professional, and everyone raved about them afterwards, well done and thankyou for making the night so amazing.

"Just wanted to thank you for performing so brilliantly the other weekend. I've had no end of people come up and compliment me on the band!" BEN MEYER - 30TH BIRTHDAY PARTY
Uncle Funk & The Boogie Wonderband were fantastic fun and the great thing about a 70s band is that the music crosses all generations so appeals to the majority of people. We loved that they changed some of the words in order to put our names in to the songs- a really nice touch and the band seemed to enjoy themselves as well which is really important. We would certainly recommend them to anyone we know and will use them again in the future. SARA - WEDDING
I would like to say a big 'Thank you' to you and all the guys for Saturday night. You were absolutely amazing and you made our evening a special one. Everybody kept saying "What a fantastic band!", and I have to agree, you were great.

The biggest band in the area – as always Uncle Funk gave Saffron Walden a great night out. Hugely entertaining and brilliant 70s tunes kept us all bopping until late. Thanks again for all your help during the rollercoaster days just before.
TRACEY (LADIES CIRCLE)
I chose Uncle Funk as they looked great in the sample playlist on the website, but actually in real life they were even ten times better than this! Imagine the ideal disco band - a full-on show, the best tunes, fancy dress, sexiness, great lighting, audience involvement, and vocals to die for - this is it! They had people up dancing at my wedding who had not danced in 20 years! One of my best friends put it eloquently; 'I don't know what you paid for this band,' he said, 'but they are worth every penny'. SARA RITCHIE - WEDDING
After seeing Uncle Funk perform a number of times at Christmas I just knew that they were the band I wanted for my wedding.
If you want your guests to dance all night, have loads and loads of fun, to not stop talking about your wedding, then this is the band for you.
I can’t praise them enough – not only do they put on the best funky disco show ever, they manage themselves in a very professional manner.
If you want people to talk about your wedding forever book this band!!!
CLAIRE & TONY LEWIS - WEDDING
