The Funky Funks are an energetic 6 piece funk/disco band that have been playing together for over 10 years. The back bone of the band are all professional musicians who's groove is so smooth that their playing is effortless. The Funks was originally formed by Britain's Got Talent's semi finalist Jody T. Jody formed The Funks with her Father Andy and Brother Lee in 2010 but they both left The Funks in 2014 to pursue other career goals, however they still dep for The Funks when needed. Music is everything to Jody hence why The Funks are still going today and they are stronger than ever! Jody doesn't front the band alone though! Best friend Liam joins her in the front line. The gorgeous Liam will grace you with his smooth voice and leave you falling at his feet! Liam is also a professional Michael Buble tribute and fits in so well with The Funks as we all share the same passion for music and performs with such energy!! Jody and Liam have sung together in their own act "Collaborate" and their harmonies are to die for. The chemistry between them is musically magical! The Funks hidden gem has to be the "Italian Stalian" Antonello. Antonello doesn't just play the keyboards, he sets them on fire with his unbeatable talent. Antonello will burst into a solo and have guests stop what they are doing to watch his hands ignite his keyboards! He is definitely the King of The Ivories!! The Funks have played at various weddings, birthday parties, corporate events and festivals. These include The Famous Coppid Beach Hotel, The Crown Plaza,Frimley Lodge Live, Clandon Festival, Staines Festival and many more!! With a Funky repertoire that consists of artists such as: Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan and Bruno Mars you can't go wrong with The Funks!

Wow! What a party! The Fabulous Funky Funks were a new band to us in 2018 and have already established themselves as one of our favourites. The gig on the 6th of October was another brilliant night, with Jody belting out classic funk, soul and pop number, backed by amazing musicians who literally had people up dancing from the very first song, all the way through to the encores at the end of the night. Brilliant, brilliant band! FFF have always given their very best and we look forward to many more great Saturday night parties in the future! Thank you guys!
