Formed in 2011, Brooklyn Funk was created as a way for seven talented musicians to play the music they love...funk, soul and Motown.

Initially playing in pubs and clubs around Bristol & The South West, the authentic sound of Brooklyn Funk has led to more and more wedding and corporate performances throughout the UK.

Brooklyn Funk's musicians can really play. Their busy schedule includes performing and recording with artists such as Kenny Thomas, Bizarre Inc & This Picture.

What sort of events do you play at?

Brooklyn Funk band are available for weddings, anniversary and birthday parties, private events and corporate functions. We are also available for public performances in and around the Bristol and South West including clubs, hotels and holiday parks.

Do you provide music in between your sets?

Yes, we do. We use a laptop which plays through our PA system. It has over 3 hours of classic soul and funk tunes carefully selected to make sure that when we’re not playing – you’re still dancing. If you have your own set list you’d like to use let us know.

Can we use your PA system for speeches or music?

As long as it is after our sound check then the PA can be used for speeches and music as required.

How loud do you play?

As loudly or as quietly as you like! Band members are used to working at various sized venues and for varying amounts of people, so will adjust the volume as necessary.

How long do you need to set up?

Usually it takes about one hour to setup – especially if we can park easily near the entrance. Depending on where the function is we may be able to set up and sound check earlier – helping to make your event seamless. We can discuss this further at the booking stage.

What time do you finish?

That’s up to you, our standard time would be midnight but we can pretty much start and finish when you want. Please ask for further details.

How long do you play for?

This depends on your requirements and budget. Typically an event would consist of 2 x 60-minute sets or 3 x 40-minute sets with music in between. Some customers prefer more or less than this, depending on if they have any other entertainment booked for the evening, and what time the venue closes.

"Hi, We had the Brooklyn Funk ‘Mothership’ for our wedding on 15 Feb 2020. We booked them almost a year in advance, and they were immediately in contact to discuss options and make sure they worked around us, including learning a song for our first dance and incorporating confetti cannons to make it really special. They then played a set list of funk bangers which got the party started and kept it going until they finished. Worth every penny! Thank you so much! Jack and Alex xx"

"Brooklyn Funk played at our wedding at Coombe Lodge and had everyone on the dance floor within seconds! They took the time to learn our first dance song (and nailed it), which was a really special and personal touch. The band were professional and punctual and really made our day unforgettable - our guests haven’t stopped talking about how much fun they had! A huge thank you to the whole band, we could not have asked for anything more!"

"Absolutely fantastic! Brooklyn Funk MADE our wedding. Their sound is brilliant, they setlist is awesome and they're a really lovely group of people. They were really accommodating - we were running really late, so they had to set up and start playing fast - and they stayed really late to let us use their PA system after they'd finished, which was incredibly kind. We can't recommend them enough."

"Brooklyn Funk were just awesome at our wedding in June this year, they made the whole experience even more memorable. They supplied live music for our drinks reception and the sets they played for us on the evening were amazing, they had everyone dancing and left us chanting "One more song". We would definitely recommend them for a wedding. Rob & Lizzy."

"A massive thank you to Brooklyn Funk band who played at our wedding on Saturday in Devon – we had the best day and the band really made it for us! Marrying a musician meant picking a wedding band was always going to be difficult (he's very picky!) but we couldn't have found a better group of guys for the job. Our guests were all so impressed and haven't stopped raving about you. Your music kept the dance floor packed all night and your musicianship was top class. Thank you too for inviting my new husband up on stage to play, it truly was a night to remember!"
