Fully FunKtional are the ultimate party people! An 6-12 piece professional band featuring top London session musicians with outrageously cool credits including Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, BBC Big Band, Kylie, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, Bryan Adams, Children in Need, Craig David, Lemar, Daniel Bedingfield, virtually every West End show inluding Chicago, Jerry Springer the Opera, Witches of Eastwick and umpteen others!
Do check out their testimonials at the bottom of the page!!
Their premier 10-piece features their famously funky rhythm section, two scorching horns, three sexy singers and their conga-tastic percussionist.
Fully FunKtional mainly perform as a 6 or 8 piece.
For any James Bond themed event, Fully FunKtional is a fabulous band to enhance the night and guarantee you will get your guests boogying all night long!
The line up for Bond does need to include possible extra brass and an extra singer for particular song arrangements, so a minimum of 7 (with no horns, 3 singers) or an 8 piece (one horn, 3 singers) or a 9 piece (with 2 horns and 3 singers)
Not Only But Also
The band can also offer dinner jazz, cocktail piano, trumpet fanfares and various reception/background music ensembles. Music covered from 60s to date, something for everybody and every occasion with the ultimate party vibe.
The band are suave and sassy to suit your event but can also reincarnate themselves as Studio 54 for a 70s extravaganza!
If you like your Karaoke you will love Pop Idle! You may have sung to backing tracks in the local pub but this is the ultimate Karaoke, when the amazing Fully FunKtional turn into your very own backing band! For full details please see the Pop Idle page!
Take 8 musicians (who have done shows inc Fame, Grease and Mama Mia to name yet more!) add a liberal sprinkling of sequins, afro wigs and a plethora of polyester, stir in a saucy party attitude and serve with 30 portions of floor stomping freakin' funkin' hits and you've got Studio 54!
The band are available for the full evening either as Fully FunKtional or Studio 54 or if you would prefer they can do one x one hour of each, one as normal human beings and the other as the Koolest Kats around!

Midnight Hour, Rock DJ, Sexbomb, Mustang Sally, Hotstuff, We are Family, Stayin' Alive, Blame it on the Boogie, Oh what a Night, That's the Way I Like it and lots more!

Hi Em and Classique
A million thanks - you were awesome - we didn't want it to end. Everyone including us were saying you were the the best band they're heard at a wedding. Thank you! Mr and Mrs Woods!! x
Hi Fully FunKtional and Classique
Have just got back to my desk after some time away from work and just wanted to thank you so very much for making our wedding day so very special. I can tell you that everyone is raving about just how fantastic you were and that the floor was filled form the very beginning to the very end.
We appreciate all the time and effort you put into the wedding prior to the actual day in preparing our song list etc...you truly were a star.
Please pass on our thanks to the whole band for their effort and energy that they put into the evening.
Good luck for your future together....we're sure you'll go far!! - Helen & Dom
Dear Nicky, everyone at Classique and of course Emily -
Having got back from honeymoon and allowed the dust to settle a bit i wanted to drop you a quick line to say one MASSIVE thankyou for your fantastic performance at our wedding in Farnham on 23rd September.
I cannot tell you how many people have said how brilliant you were and literally every single thank you letter we have received have said you were the best band they had ever seen perform at a wedding!
It was just so incredible to have the dancefloor full all night (which everyone also noticed) and you even managed to get people who i have never even seen dancing before on to the dancefloor - that really is high praise!!! even a friend who is in a band and performs annually at a very smart Belgravia street party with the likes of Margaret Thatcher and Andrew Lloyd-Webber in attendance said you were the best he had seen too!!
You really made what we hoped was always going to be a good party into an even better one and a night we so loved every second of and will remember for the rest of our lives. thank you so much for making our day so perfect and memorable and for helping to make it the best wedding ever (possible slightly biased i know but others have also said it!! I will certainly be passing on your number and have in fact already done so!! thanks so much again. Kind regards Fiona and Mikey Davis (McCall that was!)
Dear Emily (and the rest of the band) -
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for your fantastic performance at our wedding on Saturday 16th September. You were truly amazing and really made a massive contribution to our wedding day. All of our guests have been raving about you since we've been back from our honeymoon! Thank you also for organising the "nobody does it better" arrangement for our first dance which, again, was just perfect ! You were all incredibly professional .. we couldn't have wished for a better band for our wedding. We are just trying to find an excuse to book you again !
Victoria and Alex x
Dear all at Classique -
A Little note to say a BIG THANK YOU for Saturday night. Everyone you booked for us was just superb.
Literally the whole room swarmed onto the dance floor when the music started at 10pm. The floor remained packed until 2 a.m. - which is a testament to the quality of the band (Fully Funktional) and the DJ (Roger Tomkins)
The digital Paparazzi and the magicians (Russ Stokes and Chris Peskett) also went down a treat.
Thanks for all your efforts

Dear Fully FunKtional - To play in front of hundreds of police officers, you must have confidence in your ability, but to do so, as well as you did - what more can I say than 'fantastic'! We had an informal vote & it was unanimous that the best part of the evening was the band. Your DJ-ing was great too! Once again, many thanks, Darren - Metropolitan Police
Fully Funktional - Just wanted you to know again that we are still getting calls from guests commenting on how much they enjoyed the band at our daughter's BatMitzvah. Our thanks to you and your musicians for a fabulous evening's music and so much energy. Ronnie - Morgan Stanley
