Funk Fiction


More than just your average wedding band, Funk Fiction, based in London, are a versatile and accomplished 6-piece function band for hire for events across the UK and beyond.

From small intimate weddings in Cornwall to glamorous functions at London’s  Groucho Club and Shoreditch House – regardless of the setting, you can trust Funk Fiction to put their heart and soul into each and every performance. 

Showcased in their most popular 9 piece lineup the band is hugely popular in their standard 6 piece lineup that includes Female & Male Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keys, Drum & Sax. The 9 piece adds in an increased horn section & percussion (P.O.A.)

 

Funk Fiction Smaller


If you’re looking for the perfect party band, playing the widest spectrum of songs; be it for a wedding reception, birthday celebration or corporate event, Funk Fiction are the only covers band you’ll need. They have a huge and varied repertoire that spans everything from 60s classics to the very latest popular hits. There’s truly something for everyone, no matter what the age range or musical tastes

Collectively the band are all incredibly experienced and accomplished musicians – they’re all music graduates who have trained at some of the UK’s most prestigious music conservatoires, colleges and universities. As individual musicians, they have performed at venues such as The O2The Barbican and The Royal Festival Hall; at festivals such as GlastonburyThe Big Chill and Wilderness, and have been heard on BBC Radio 2BBC 6 Music and BBC London amongst other radio stations. Indeed, members of their brass section are in the current house band for Sky 1’s music and comedy show Bring The Noise.

Converse to the usual story, they’d all played in bands playing original material but really fancied having a go at playing classic, timeless songs that people knew – and enjoyed! By coincidence, they all lived in or around London, so after graduating all decided to keep playing together, and haven’t looked back since.

Funk Fiction are available for your entertainment across England including Kent
