  • Gilly & Tim Godwin's wedding reception - Totnes Boating Assoc. clubhouse - AUG 2014

    Thank you so much for arranging Function 5 to play at our evening wedding party. We were highly impressed with their professionalism, the way they set up at the venue and (most importantly) their expert musicianship coupled with their ability to 'read' the guests which meant that the dance floor was always full of energetic dancers ranging in age from two to eighty. Just what we hoped for. We did not provide a playlist but left it up to Function 5 and we were not disappointed in the slightest. Many people commented on how brilliant they were. Thank you once again! Gilly

  • Pat & Steve's wedding - Langstone Cliff Hotel, Dawlish - JULY 2012

    Hi Koser, Thank you so much for all your help in organising the band for our wedding. The organisation throughout was very professional and efficient and we really appreciated your liaising with the hotel prior to the event. On the night, the band surpassed our expectations. The meal and speeches tended to over-run and we had to vary the agreed set schedule but we found the band to be friendly, approachable and flexible and most importantly of all, they performed two extremely well-paced sets. Many of our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed it. I was also impressed by how they involved the children with tambourines & maracas etc. I am only ashamed to say that I rather monopolised the maracas! Could you please pass on our thanks to the band for their flexibility, approachability and most importantly, for performing a superb set. I would certainly recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone who wants their party to go with a swing! Cheers, Steve

  • Bill Goodwin & Jane Turner wedding reception - Bedford Hotel, Tavistock - JUNE 2012

    Function 5 really are the perfect band for weddings! The band were brilliant with the kids as well. They had a box of instruments for the children to join in. It was their performance which made the evening a special one. The band makes you feel you have to join in and dance. We could not sit still all evening and have never done so much dancing. So a big thank you to Function 5 for putting on a first class performance and we would highly recommend them to anyone!

  • Helen & Stephen's 25th Anniversary - Wembworthy Centre, Wembworthy - AUG 2011

    Hi Koser, Our mini festival went fantastically and we enjoyed every minute. Your careful organisation and the band's flexibility on the night are an ideal mix and meant everything went very smoothly. Our guests really enjoyed Function 5. There were many comments about what excellent musicians they are and how well they 'read' their audience and pitched it just right so everyone really had a great evening. Please pass on my thanks to them. All the best and thanks again, Stephen

  • Diana Sweeney, Organiser - Chulmleigh Old Fair, Chulmleigh - JULY 2011

    Hi Koser, Well you said they were good, they knocked Chulmleigh for six! Absolutely fantastic, loved every moment they were on stage. Shattered now but will give you more info later. Thanks a million, Di..... Dear Koser, Function 5 are an excellent group and I have had people who were totally against having a band ask if I can get them back next year!! Extremely talented! Although it was a fair, there were people watching and listening and saying 'Wow they are good'. One youngster came down and said 'It is going round the pub, how good the band is' she then danced for 30 minutes (and she never dances!). If I can persuade the committee, which I do not think they will need much persuading, I will ask you to pencil them in for next year. Thanks a million for all your help! Love, Di

  • Liz & John's Wedding - Kenton Victory Hall, Exeter - JUNE 2011

    Hi Koser, Wow, what an amazing band! They were the best, we've had so many compliments for booking them, they really made our night. Matt did an amazing drum solo in the dark when we blew up the power to the hall!! Fortunately all was rectified with some dodgy fuse box by-passing, but it was an incredible solo that everyone was talking about. Even got my Mum on the dance floor! They were such a great band! Nina had all the little children dancing as well as John's Auntie Joan in her 80s - on the dance floor for most of the night!! Thanks so much Koser for organising everything for us and putting up with all my worried emails! If you could pass our thanks on to the band we'd really appreciate it, they really were the best! Liz & John

  • Kate & Craig, Wedding - Saunton Sands Hotel, Devon - MAY 2011

    Hi Koser, Function 5 were excellent! Many of the guests commented on how good they were and we were delighted that their music got everyone up and dancing. Nina has a great voice and the variety of songs they performed worked really well. The guitar solos were a brilliant bonus! The band were also very flexible and helpful and I would recommend them to anyone!

  • Carla & Tim’s Wedding - The Old Rectory, East Portlemouth - SEPT 2010

    Hi Koser, the band arrived promptly, played great music and had a full dance floor all night. Nina is a fab singer, and Pete showed off his guitar moves in style. We thought they were extremely competitively priced and will be recommending them to our friends who are getting married next year. In summary, they exceeded our expectations. Brilliant!

  • Amy & Benjamin’s wedding - RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset - SEPT 2010

    Function 5 were fantastic! The ideal band for Amy & Ben's Wedding celebrations. They entertained all ages that were there. Their choice of music and repertoire was ideal. Their performance was superb both as individuals and as a group. Many people have commented since how well they played and got everyone up dancing. I think we even grew a 'groupie' for them. People enjoyed the band members moving amongst them on the dance floor and also that people were made to join in and finish off lines and verses. I have no hesitation in recommending them to the social committee to consider looking at for future events. Please thank the band for their patience and flexibility in waiting from allocated early set up slot in the afternoon and again for allowing us to run over slightly on their starting time. I hope they enjoyed the night too? Thank you again and thank you to Function 5!

  • Natalie & Keith’s Wedding - The Pavillions, Wadebridge - Aug 2010

    Hi Koser, The band were brilliant! Very good musicians and good song choices. Would definitely use them again!

  • Sally Annan, Mother of the Bride - Gingles Field, Cornwall - May 2010

    Hi Koser, I just had to add to Kate’s e-mail to say how brilliant we thought the music was at the wedding. The band were terrific and everyone had a wonderful time – the children particularly loved it all, and it was lovely that they were so encouraged to be involved with the music. Jessica & Charlotte (6), who had never met, actually stood right in front of the microphone with a couple of maracas for what seemed like hours, in perfect time to the music as well! In fact, at my other daughter’s wedding 8 years ago in a marquee but not the same site down here, we had a local band and they had everyone on the dance floor all the time – but I have to say that Peter and the guys were even better as they were so interactive – I don’t think I have ever sung Mustang Sally down a microphone before! Embarrassing but what the heck! A great band, great people and my thanks to them all again – fabulous! Wish we could do it all again.

  • Kate & Robin Pearson, Wedding - Gingles Field, Cornwall - May 2010

    Hi Koser, Function 5 were absolutely brilliant! They performed amazingly and the entire place was jumping by the end of the evening. Robin and I didn't want to leave! Please pass on huge thanks from us for doing such a fantastic job. All of our guests (including the old farts) have commented on the band and how brilliant they are. Little Jessica & Charlotte were very excited to be part of the band too! We really loved every single minute of it. Thank you Thank you Thank you! From a very excited and extremely happy Mr & Mrs Pearson (PS - please feel free to use any of the comments above to promote the band - we will be recommending them to everyone we know!

  • Gill Freeman - Members Presentation Dinner - Woodbury Golf and Country Club – 2009

    A very friendly, professional and enthusiastic band. The dance floor was busy all evening. Many good comments from our members. We would certainly book them again.

  • Helen & Tim’s wedding - Two Bridges Hotel, Princetown – 2009

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing on our wedding day at the Two Bridges. Absolutely everybody has been raving about you and think that you were all just the best. If you want any comments for you website we have a whole host of wedding guests who would be more than happy to say their piece. You blew us away and we just wanted to say thank you so much!

  • Shirley Stoneman (The Palace Hotel, Torquay) 2009

    What an inspired decision it was to book Function 5 for Jane and Russell’s wedding! You were truly amazing - where do you all get that energy from? The music was just what our guests wanted, the dance floor was never empty and you left them screaming for more! Apart from being extremely talented musicians you are all lovely people too. Thank you very, very much!
