Smooth and punchy soul with real groove

5 stars - Funk Soul Stars are Highly Recommended
booked Funk Soul Stars for their Wedding in Norfolk August 2021

“Funk Soul Stars played our wedding last night and we’re still not quite over it! From Motown classics to funky dancefloor fillers - they had it all. The brass section gave the tunes a real punch, the vocalists were spot on and created a great atmosphere. I’ve received lots of messages today from friends and family saying how much they enjoyed their set! Chris and the band were a professional outfit and a delight to deal with. Highly recommend!”

“I hired these guys for my 60th birthday and they did not disappoint !!! They outperformed any soul/disco group I’ve ever seen , including some of the world’s most famous names . They’ve got it right , from the perfect selection of tunes to the outright energy and musicality of their stagecraft and a really crisp clean PA system . My group of 150 friends , many musicians themselves were constantly singing their praises . Amazing night . Thanks a million .”

booked Funk Soul Stars for their Wedding in Suffolk

“The funk soul stars were more than we could have imagined, from start to finish they had all our guests on their feet. The band were not only fantastic musicians but all lovely people and really made the whole thing special. They were completely down to earth, engaged with us (as the bride and groom) and were just so easy going but still very fun! The set list they pulled together was great and Ain’t no mountain high enough as our first dance was just perfect. We would recommend them for any occasion and would book them again in a heartbeat!”

A massive thank you to you all for making our wedding

booked Funk Soul Stars for their event at Selsdon Park Hotel in Surrey

“Our charity event had a real feel good factor and the Funk Soul Stars helped keep that flowing. The dance floor was full to overflowing and the crowd begged for more. The Funk Soul Stars were enthusiastic and seemed to be enjoying themselves, which added to the atmosphere. They exceeded my expectations, even the hotel staff commented, I believe the barman was dancing!”
