GLAXOSMITHKLEIN "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." -

Birthday "After the first few chords the floor was alive with 70's retro cladded party goers. The songs were fantastic, the band musicians excellent! The band appeared to be having as good time as the party goers! Everyone has been talking about how great the party was for weeks, and in particular Uncle Funk & The Boogie Wonderband. Even the gig-die hards said "what an amazing band". If you want a special night call on Uncle Funk, they are worth every penny!"

Wedding Just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to say a massive thank you for the fantastic music you and your band provided on our wedding day, you were all simply brilliant!!! Everyone has been talking about it for the past three weeks and for us it simply was the icing on the cake, what a way to finish a wedding!! I am now trying to find any excuse to book you again as i want another party, and don't be surprised if you get new enquiries from people at the wedding as i have had to pass on your details to a few. Please make sure you pass on our thanks to your band and keep on playing because your act is faultless. From a very happy customer, thank you!!!"

Party We cannot recommend Uncle Funk highly enough. If you want your party to be a complete blast and to bask in compliments from your guests for months afterwards, book Uncle Funk now. Don't just take our word from it, here's some comments from our friends' thank you letters:-
"The band was sensational! What a scream and now I want a party so that I can have them to make me smile from ear to ear!" Bim, Herts
"The band was sensational!" Alice, Beds
"Then there was the band... we haven't danced so much in years!" Guy and Alice, Cambs
"As for the band... what can I say? They were amazing and, having thought that I might run out of stamina, they had us all there at 2am still rocking..." Barry and Sarah, Beds
"The band was, as Francois (who is not liberal with compliments) said, the best that he has EVER heard/seen. I thought they were totally phenomenal. I think it is the only party I have been to where the dance floor cleared when the band had a rest and not the other way around!" Mark A, London
THANKS AGAIN for boogeying our world.

Birthday Dear Simon and the entire Uncle Funk band/techys/team
Just had to write to say a huge thank you for MAKING my birthday! Turning 40 hasn't been at all painful!
In case you didn't notice, the entire "do" was built around you and what you do- I wasn't allowed to be involved in the arrangements but I told them it absolutely had to involve Uncle Funk or I wasn't coming! Haha! (Lucky I put feelers out some time ago and you were still available!)
I would have been unlucky this weekend, (guessing you're having a mad time at Glastonbury-) hope it all goes well you truly deserve it.
We will see you at Standon Calling, so thrilled you're performing.
Once again, THANK YOU!

wedding Just wanted to thank you for putting on such a good show! Everyone has been asking me about you guys since and saying how brilliant you were! I loved the little personal touches you put in and I was really pleased with how you guys set up with such little fuss and how flexible and accommodating you were throughout the evening! We barely noticed you setting up to be honest! So again thank you very much!
