City Funk was set up to provide something they felt was largely missing among function bands – genuine soul! Countless auditions were held to find passionate talented & versatile singers & players, able not only to accurately reproduce the dynamics & feel of people’s favourite old Motown & Soul records, but also sound every bit as at home playing modern chart classics from some of the world’s leading artists.
100% live (no backing tracks or sequencers), this accomplished band plays an awesome & unique set of classic Funk, Soul, Motown, Disco and Rock ‘n’ Roll tracks performed seamlessly alongside soulful modern chart classics.
Never failing to wow audiences, City Funk's performances are energetic & enthusiastic, and with years of experience packing dance floors, guests are guaranteed to be dancing & singing along from the first song to the last!
What really makes the band stand out so much from others though is their attention to detail – they know guests at a function want to hear their favourite songs performed as they know and love them – and no other band sounds as close to the original songs – leading to comments from guests such as "I had to do a double take to check it wasn’t really Stevie Wonder!"
As well as having hundreds of appearances under their belts at private parties, weddings & corporate functions (including numerous household name companies) at some of the nations premiere venues, members of City Funk have toured extensively and recorded with Alvin Stardust, performed with King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys; played at the world renowned Reading Festival; appeared on live BBC radio sessions and lead singer Clarke Bailey even appeared on ITV’s X-Factor in 2006, making it all the way to Simon Cowell’s infamous ‘boot camp’!
