When you absolutely, positively, gotta have everybody on the dance floor, accept no substitute.

If high energy and lots of fun is what you're after, then What The Funk band is for you. Ordinarily, the band are a 5 or 6 piece, professional funk, soul and pop function band, playing covers that you'll just love to love. On those occasions when a smaller entity is required, What The Funk perform as a duo (electric or acoustic) with myself, Andie, singing and my long term friend, Pete, on guitar. In both cases, we have a massive repertoire, jam packed full of dance floor classics and sing along anthems, from the last 50 years through to the newest chart hits, their funky grooves will make your special occasion a night to remember. Emphasizing harmony and melody and having a nasty bass line, What The Funk’s fans come from all walks of life… Dancing and grooving their way onto the dance floor. The core soul of WTF have been together for almost 20 years. We don't compromise on professionalism. Collectively, our gigging experience is unrivalled! From pubs, to clubs, to weddings to private parties and corporate functions, we’ll turn your event from A party into THE party. If you’re looking for an excellent sound that gets people off their feet and involved in the show, check out What the Funk, stand back and watch the dancefloor devastation. We always build up a great rapport with the audience ensuring everyone has a great time. You won’t want us to stop. With new tunes being added weekly, WTF can also offer a bespoke setlist to suit you and how you want your party to feel. We also offer reception background music, with a playlist of your choice, or lounge music for the perfect vibe.

Carol B, 9 years ago

hank you so much for playing at our Anniversary party. It was amazing. We have had the most memorable and wonderful time. You made the night special

Shelley P, 2 years ago

Thank you all so much for playing at my Birthday party. To be honest, I wasn't sure if all your songs would work, but you played exactly what we all wanted to hear (and dance to!!!). Loads of people came up to us afterwards and asked for your number. - I'm sure we'll see you again!!!
