Soul Funk Secret played our wedding on Saturday 18th November and were without doubt one of the highlights of the day! I have had so many people comment on how great the band were; Amy & I couldn't be happier. Brilliant music and energy throughout the night - We would 100% recommend! Thank you Marco & the whole band!
