Introducing one of the country’s premier event bands specialising in music for weddings, parties and corporate events…Funky Buddha.
Funky Buddha are a professional soul funk party band who provide outstanding music and service for weddings, parties and corporate events throughout the UK and Internationally. This is music you are going to want to dance to…..Guaranteed!
Our aim is to help you create an event that you and your guests are going to remember for all the right reasons; great atmosphere, great energy and outstanding music. With clever arrangements, hot horn lines and beautiful harmonies, there is a lot to listen to and most importantly a lot to dance to!
One of Funky Buddha’s many strengths is the great versatility they can offer in terms of music. Although most known for our fantastic party sets, we are all academy trained musicians who play a broad range of styles from Classical to Jazz and Popular to more Chillout styles. This versatility means that we can offer you a range of musical options depending on what you are looking for. We can provide outstanding music throughout the whole day and night, catering specifically for you – what you like and what you want.
From ceremony music to dinner jazz, or chillout music as you have a drink and enjoy the canapés, we can offer you the whole package. The advantage of this for you is that we offer these extras at a significantly reduced price if you book the band for the evening. We can oversee all your music requirements, ensuring that everything flows smoothly and is of the same high professional standard we guarantee at all our events.

Just wanted to let you know the Funky Buddha Band I booked this
Saturday for my 40th Birthday were superb.
They were all very professional, friendly and great performers and
Chris was great at communicating up to the event.
I would thoroughly recommend them and use them again.
Kind regards and thank you, Funky Buddha Band made my party and
everyone was very impressed. Sonya Rowswell (July 2014, Kent)
When I asked my wedding planner to give me the name of the best
band she had seen, she led me to you Funky Buddha Band…..I’m so
glad she did!
When I looked you up I knew you were the band for me and after to
speaking to Huw personally it only confirmed it for me.
Everything i write just seems so lame but I am a perfectionist and
you were perfection, From the Jazz in the sunshine, to the first dance,
to the pure funk in the evening. Everybody was dancing from 3-78 yr
olds and even the teenagers were dancing and enjoying themselves
(and not even in an ironic way lol).
Although I didnt have time to talk to you, I didnt need too I was in
safe hands, my guests did though and they said you were the most
friendly easy going bunch of dudes ever.
My only two regrets are: 1. I wasn’t a guest so had to be sensible lol
2. I did that much of a good job, my daughter’s prep school have
asked me to be the events co-ordinator…..they also have you in mind
for the Bi-annual Ball.
So Funky Buddha, I would like to thank you for helping making our
wedding legendary. people are still talking about it now. AMAZEBALLS
BIG LOVE Donna and Dominic (June 2014, Derbyshire)
Just wanted to say what a fantastic job the band did on the night –
they blew everyone away!
Everyone was asking how we got them and how we found the band
as they were so so good!
Both Jamie and I were highly impressed with the seamless-ness of
the day and how everything went so so well.
There’s already talk of having a big party for our first year
anniversary, so I will be in touch for you if we decide to do this and
ask Funky Buddha to come back and play for our friends and family!
Thank you so much again for your help in making our wedding day
the best day of our lives. Rachelle and Jamie (May 2014,
Now the dust has settled and June and I have returned to earth from
cloud 9 can we both please take this opportunity to thank you and
your band for a most fabulous evening.
The quality of the music was superb and we have received so many
comments on the fantastic music you played.
As an indication of how well the party went, you even managed to get
my 82 year old Mother onto the dance floor – A sight which has not
been seen since 1976 !!!! Thank you.
In fact at one point you had everyone from a 6 year old child to an 82
yr old grandmother all on the dance floor at the same time – an
example of the diversity of the music you played.
Many Many thanks once again for a fantastic evening
With very best wishes for a successful 2014, Mr Cunningham (April
I have been meaning to write thanking all of you guys for your great
music at our wedding party.
I can’t praise you all highly enough. You kept us all heaving on the
floor all the time. Just great!
And a special mention of your singer – see attachment. I don’t know
how she managed to remember her lyrics under such extreme and
sustained adoring provocation!
With very best wishes for a successful 2014, Miles (December
Thank you so much for entertaining the crowd at our wedding on
Saturday – you guys were absolutely awesome! We loved the fact
that you enabled us to have our first dance to live music and the set
was just great. So many guests raved about you. Ziggy, the event
manager at Old Finsbury Town Hall, said you were one of the best
bands she has ever heard. We hope more business comes your way
as a result and we will certainly be recommending you to family and
We both feel terrible that we didn’t actually get the chance to say
hello or goodbye. We’re not sure how it happened! We’d planned to
say thanks in person at the end, but everyone left so quickly that we
didn’t get the chance.
You guys really made our night! Thank you once again, Cat and
Dayo (December 2013)
I just wanted to say thank you very much for performing at our
wedding last night!!
Your music was absolutely perfect. Everyone loved the band. You
made our night!! I haven’t seen many live bands performing on such
a high level.
Looking forward to hear you soon again. I will recommend you to
everyone. Best wishes to the rest of the band. Katie and Joachim
