THE UK's NUMBER 1 LIVE DISCO BAND!

Absolute Funk are your dream ticket to the success of your party, wedding, corporate event, carnival or festival.



Their musical perfection is matched with their outrageous costumes, slick dance moves and energetic show that will put smiles on faces and keep feet firmly on the dancefloor.



Absolute Funk play a winning set of disco classics – think "The Greatest Hits Of Disco Volume 1" and you have an idea! Every song in the set has been chosen with the dancefloor in mind – nothing indulgent, nothing obscure, just the disco hits.



The quality and showmanship is such that Absolute Funk have been booked to play many major UK festivals including Glastonbury (booked to headline a stage in 2015, 2016 and 2017), Standon Calling (main stage) & Shambala (headlining a stage).


They have also played celebrity birthday parties, VDub Festivals, Carnivals and Butlin's mainstage, but the band are equally at home playing weddings, private parties and corporate events.

Absolute Funk have the experience, showmanship and musical dexterity to guarantee your guests are on the dancefloor all night having the time of their lives!

But don't take our word for it - please read the many glowing testimonials from just a few of our shows!

"Thanks for playing at our family party!" - Rupert Grint (Actor)

“Uncle Funk are even higher than the toppermost of the poppermost when it comes to entertaining the nation. Groovier than groove and funkier than funk with hairdos and bell bottoms to match, there is no finer band in the universe to get the people on their feet!!!” – Mike Peters, The Alarm (www.thealarm.com)

You were one of the highlights of the weekend! LOUNGE ON THE FARM FESTIVAL, CANTERBURY

"Just A Quick Note To Say Thanks To You And The Band For A Really Fantastic Night On Friday. I Think You Could See That Everyone Had A Great Time. I Had A Look Around During The Last Song And Everyone In The Room Was On The Dance Floor, It Was Magic! I'll Certainly Keep A Look Out For You In Stortford Or Harlow And Will Drag Some Friends Along. Uncle Funk Are A Truly Wonderful Band, I Wish You Every Success For The Future."  -  JANE WAKELIN - GLAXOSMITHKLEIN

I would just like to say a big thank you for Saturday, you guys were brilliant and a pleasure to work with. The feedback has been fantastic!  - DEBORAH WATTS - LANDBEACH PARTY IN THE PARK 

Uncle Funk and the Boogie Wonderband turned the Spotlight into a disco inferno! "Utter perfection" said more than one party goer. "Are they your house band?" we were asked on several occasions during the evening! The 2015 Christmas Party night was a rip roaring success, so much so that Uncle Funk are back for 2016 in December and for an alternative Christmas Party night in June! It’s 70s nostalgia with a noughties twist! Get your cod pieces to the ready and groove with this sensational band!

Melanie Miller  - Marketing & Programming Manager The Spotlight          

 

Thank you so much for a fantastic night. You all worked so hard to ensure that EVERYBODY joined in the dancing and had a great evening. I think there must have been some sore feet the next day! Your voices are incredible and it was well worth the extra for the horn section and The Full Monty package!!! The Client is keen to book you for next year’s event so fingers crossed that you are all free! - VIVIENNE FOSTER- EVENT MANAGEMENT  PERSONNEL ORGANISERS LTD


Wow!! What a night! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the band. Thanks for everything - it was a great night! Uncle Funk RULE!!!! - Nicole Blight Springetts Brand Design Consultants Limited
