About The Wooden Men

World class, professional, 8 piece function band from the South East specialising in Ska, Funk, Soul, Rock, Reggae, Blues, Pop
Ska band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The Wooden Men are a group of life-long friends from the South London area. Tired of the apparent lack of music that truly shakes people to the core, the band made a pact to break that mould and blend together the best sounds and styles to create their own brand of unique, honest and soulful dance-floor fillers. Having built a strong reputation as highly sought after function band; playing weddings, birthdays and even BBC end of season parties, The Wooden Men's original sound underlines their understanding of the best music for grabbing a crowd, throwing them in the air and not letting them down until they're finished. With the smoothness of Otis Reading, the power of James Brown and the excitement of the Rolling Stones, it would be no exaggeration to say that this band never fail to get everybody singing, dancing and losing themselves altogether from start to finish. (If you are booking The Wooden Men for your event and would like a specific selection of songs please inform us in due time so that we can have them cooked to perfection)
