What The Funk! is a band like no other. Formed in early 2016 by a group of experienced musicians, this band is on a mission to bring the music of the 70's, 80's and 90's back to life. With a passion for the music of these decades, they set out to capture the true essence of the era, not just emulate it. Using the latest technology and instruments, they are able to recreate vintage synth and drum sounds that make their performances truly authentic and true to the original music. But that's not all, What The Funk! also infuses their set with modern chart hits, making for a high-energy and dynamic performance that guarantees to get any crowd on their feet and dancing. If you're looking for a band that truly captures the spirit of the past and brings it to the present, look no further than What The Funk!

All members of the band have very different tastes. When we blend them together, we arrive at Chic, Queen, ABBA, Dua Lipa, Earth, Wind & Fire to name just a few.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

The Eastbourne Feastival. An annual music and food festival that has grown to be very popular. Huge stage and open area for dancing. Highly recommended!

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes, Zoe is our only singer, and gets most of the love and thanks at the end of the performance!

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Drums. We have the same line-up for each show.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. We have a cable coming out of our mixing desk, ready for a phone or laptop. If you don't have your own setlist, we usually put something on ourselves.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance! On some occasions, we may need to do a quick sound-check. This is usually well ahead of any guests arriving.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually need a minimum of 5m by 3m space to perform

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
