Thomas Brian

Hi my name’s Thomas Brian. I’m originally from Leicester but I’ve lived in Greater Manchester since 2007 when I moved up north to study music at Salford University. Since then I’ve been very active in the Manchester music scene, playing in a variety of function bands, originals bands and acoustic ensembles. in the summer of 2015 I spent several months as the resident guitar vocalist at Caldera Palace, a 5* Thomson resort in Crete. This was a big learning curve for me as it allowed me to improve my playing, having to perform up to four sets a night, six nights a week to a widely varied audience. Alongside playing function events as a guitar vocalist, I'm also the bassist in The Robbers, a three piece function band based in Manchester.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Porter performed at out Picnic and Pimms event this past summer and it was greatly received by all of our guests. We can not wait to have them back next year due to high demand.


When I booked Totally Funktional I hadn't seen their performance before and was a little uncertain whether they would sound the same on the night as they did on their YouTube clip. But Wow! They were fantastic. They really impressed us and our guests and made the evening even more special. I would recommend Totally Funktional without hesitation.


Excellent. Danny and the band were very entertaining and accommodating. They even stayed on for an extra 1.5 hours to entertain the guests. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for an Irish/folk band for an event. Thank you very much.
