“With vocals that manage to tingle the hairs on the back of your neck and excellent musicianship, Funk Soul Brothers don't fail to impress. From the uplifting groovy tunes to the atmospheric ambient sounds at the other, Musicology manage to leave a lasting impression. With their own unique takes on classics such as Oasis' Wonderwall to James Browns' Get up, it is clear to see the sheer talent this band possess. Musicology is definitely a crowd pleaser and a excellently put together band. I highly recommend this band to anybody who enjoys real, pure talent as well as being able to dance the night away.”

“Sam Hendricks and his band are one of the most professional and entertaining bands I have come across within my 16 years of entertainment. They don't just play amazing music but they also perform with such passion. They perform with high talent and to suit their audiences.”

“Just want to say a massive thank you for all you did to make our wedding day extra special. The professionalism of you and the band were amazing from start to finish. We had looked at a few wedding bands in the run up to the wedding and I can safely say you smashed them out of the park. People are still talking about “That band” so extra thanks there! Also a special thank you to you for taking on our request for our first dance song and executing it perfectly! I think the Script would have been proud! All the best for the future and again THANK YOU!”

Wayne & Faye Higgins May 2012
