Probably the best Jazz-funk band we have ever seen. An amazing line up of exceptionally talented musicians who have played individually with some of the greatest bands of the last 30 years. We really enjoyed the depth of their sound and the incredible arrangements across a wide variety of songs.

I booked The funkraum Band for my partners 50th Birthday. To say they were outstanding is an understatement, they exceeded all my expectations. Not only are they incredibly talented musicians, they also have great energy between them. We danced the night away, I will definitely be booking them again, I wholeheartedly recommend.
