EXCELLENT! Craig was so entertaining and was fabulous at pleasing the crowd with all the well known hits and anthems, the whole party was singing along. He also covered requests from the audience and in advance which was very entertaining. Thank you Pop Top and Craig for making my dad's 70th a really special night.

Couldn’t recommend them more, Funk City Band were in touch as soon as I booked them for a 40th bday party and were incredibly accommodating and flexible, making sure they had all the details of the event. On the night they created a fantastic atmosphere and managed to engage the audience and get everyone dancing with the Jukebox Mash-up and their awesome music knowledge of what we’re some quite eclectic requests! Already trying g to think of an excuse for another event 😊
