Hello and thanks for dropping by our web site. We're The Funktones from Edinburgh and we love performing at weddings and parties all over Scotland (and sometimes beyond!)
We're a fairly new band but each of us has loads of experience working in other wedding and covers bands. We put The Funktones together for a few reasons; we all get on really well and have the same taste in music plus we all make our living as musicians and when you spend as much time together as we do, it makes sense to have as much fun as possible.
Also, we realised that getting married is an expensive business and we wanted to make great live music available at a reasonable cost which is why we're one of the few top rated wedding and function bands that can be hired for less than a thousand pounds! That's right, up to three and a half hours of live music, including a thirty minute ceilidh set, full state of the art PA system and four talented musicians for less than a grand! We like to be busy and our prices ensure that's the case - in fact dates are filling fast so if you are looking for a great band at a reasonable price without compromising quality or talent, we're the band for you.
Filling dance floors is the job of any good band and we work hard to make sure that we're constantly updating our playlist to ensure you hear the latest tunes but with a healthy dose of classic floorfillers to keep everyone happy. We approach every booking with the understanding that your event is unique to you, that your guests will vary in age and musical taste and that you'll want to give every single guest the chance to dance to something they love. We're also happy to learn a specific first dance if it's not already in our repertoire (although we do ask for 12 weeks notice to give us a chance to rehearse and polish the most important song of the night).
Use our Get Quote button to find out if we're free and to get an accurate idea of how much it costs to hire one of Scotland's most exciting young bands - we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Please note that if your wedding or event is more than 2 hours from our base in Edinburgh, the cost of travel and possibly accommodation may take our fee over one thousand pounds.
