About Brooklyn Funk – professional party band based in Bristol

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.

"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!"

"We booked Brooklyn Funk for our wedding for a good funky evening, rather than a cheesy wedding band. They were very professional to deal with beforehand, turned up on time and delivered a great set! Highly recommend."

"Hi Gavin, We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the band for being so unbelievably brilliant on Saturday! The first song was incredible, everything ran smoothly and you set the evening off into the very best kind of chaos. Everyone loved it. All the best and cheers to you all! Kathy & Alex."

"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."

"Brooklyn Funk were incredible!!!! 5*!!! We had them at our wedding recently and the party got started immediately, and my husband and I honestly didn't stop dancing the whole night. They couldn't quite do our first dance that we had thought of, but they did the most beautiful rendition of Stand By Me, and we loved it. All the band were really friendly and fun and more than anything really talented. I would recommend them to anyone, best wedding band I have ever known (I know this is biased but it's true!)"

"Absolutely fantastic! Brooklyn Funk MADE our wedding. Their sound is brilliant, their 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."

"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!"

"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"
