If you’re looking for an amazing wedding band for hire for your wedding, Christmas party or event look no further than Funk City.

The band came together through a mutual love of excellent party music and performing at weddings and events. Together they have played over 400 weddings and functions and are one of the most fun filled, varied and brilliant bands for hire in London and the UK.

Every member of the band is a professional musician who individually has over 10 years of live music experience and we’ve created one of the best Surrey and London Wedding Bands available.

However - we don’t just stop there. We regularly perform across the South East, South West and we are happy to cover the whole of the UK.

Craig Mitchell - Lead Vocals and Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar and all emails.

Choo Choo all aboard the love train! Craig ‘Lightening’ Mitchell (not a real name) is the lead singer and guitarist in the band. He played over 250 gigs last year alone and won’t leave the stage until everyone has been on the dance floor! He has been a professional musician for the last 14 years as well as teaching ‘rock’ and ‘the funk’ to anyone willing to listen. He also has a solo act ‘Juke Box Mash Up’ - an interactive / comedy / music show where you can request ANY song in the world and he will play it live there and then.

Sam – Bass, Vocals and Bass Guitar

Sam plays Bass Guitar and sings. Sam has been a professional musician for over 10 years, regularly performing at Weddings, Birthday Parties and other events. He has a degree in ‘Bringing it home’! He has Funk and is not afraid to show you the photos...

Benj – Drums

Benj has been with the band for almost 8 years now. He is a professional music teacher by day and semi rock / pop god by night. He sings all the high notes on the Whitney Houston medleys out of choice. If he could be her he would be. But sadly he can’t so he just ROCKS for Funk City.

Michael – Keys and arrangement

Mike gets all the cool piano solos in the band. A band favourite is ‘Great Balls of Fire’ where once he actually caught on fire. This was ‘cos he was too close to the fireplace when we were rocking. He did *almost* die (not really) but holy crap that was funny.

Dawn – Vocals

She’s got sweet sounds and some funky dance moves. Dawn is one of our wonderful female singers. She can belt out a song like no one. Great harmonies, and she can make a mean pie. She has a slinky score of 9.8. Her favourite snacks are Caramel Chews.

Sarah – Vocals

Sarah is the other of our regular ladies who joins us. She gets to play with a number of other fantastic bands so is very experienced and by day is a radio DJ for Global Radio and Reprezent. She can really wail.

Nikki - Saxophone

Nikki’s got a big horn. Tenor in fact. She was born at a very young age and has been growing ever since. Need a cool sax solo? Boom. She’s there. She saysWhy would I ever leave the house when there’s Netflix and ice cream waiting for me?’ She’s got a point. This is her last Funk City bio. Ever.

Rosanne - Trumpet

You know that guy Louis Armstrong? She sounds like him. Simples.
