Live wedding band FuncTown raise the roof for a great yorkshire wedding

By 05/06/2023 No Comments

As the owner of LiveBand entertainment, I know that a live wedding band is the key to a truly sensational day.  Every year, I get the pleasure of providing stunning live music for a whole host of events. But I have to admit that weddings are my absolute favourite! Providing the soundtrack for a couple’s special day is a real privilege. Plus, it’s one that I love to share with you all on this blog. So this week, I’m turning the spotlight to James and Lynsey. The couple recently said ‘I do’ to each other, and to funktastic live wedding band, FuncTown (aka Funk On The Rocks)!

The mission, should we choose to accept it

James and Lynsey wanted to find the perfect live wedding band for their big day.

Gorgeous couple James and Lynsey approached us to let us know they were getting hitched and they were after a reyt good Yorkshire knees-up.

The chosen band would be joining the happy couple at the stunning Victoria Hotel in super-scenic seaside retreat Robin Hoods Bay. With breathtaking views of the coastline, elegant architecture and an intimate atmosphere, the scene was all set for an incredible day. All that was missing was the music…. 

The stunning wedding venue, Victoria Hall.

That’s where we came in! With a brief like that – how could we say no? As a proud Yorkshire business ourselves, we were confident that LiveBand entertainment was the perfect partner to give James and Lynsey an unforgettable live wedding band experience.

A match made in heaven 

First things first, James was an absolute pleasure to work with! His love for music made helping him plan the perfect live wedding band a breeze. After browsing LiveBand Entertainment’s fantastic selection of live bands and musicians, James settled on the perfect live band for a proper party. None other than FuncTown aka Func On The Rocks!

Lovely James – what a gent!

Formed in 2006, this sensational six-piece has been igniting events nationwide for more than 15 years. Offering a captivating blend of soul, funk, Motown, and pop, we knew they’d give James and Lynsey the night of their lives.

The reviews are in….  

Now I know all my live wedding bands are top-notch. After all, I hand picked them myself! But sometimes it takes some lovely feedback from a happy couple to really highlight what a fantastic job they do for our clients. Just take a look at this glowing review from James. It certainly left me grinning from ear to ear! 

“Hi Melody,

Just a quick late night email to you;


The band were absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!!

We and everyone absolutely loved them, what a rather large cherry on the wedding pie!!!

They totally smashed it, great energy, extremely talented, very personable, professional and friendly.

We loved their end of set energy. Catching them dancing around packing up, we rejoined and set up one last 5 minutes of power dancing to Groove Armada! Yesss, what a memento to our special day.

Thank them massively, we would love to see them play live again. We will highly recommend, and how lovely that a new baby was brewing up listening to our special day.

Thank you so much, 


Not only this, but a few days later James left FuncTown aka Funk On The Rocks even more 5-star feedback. Check it out below! 

Don’t believe the hype? Well see for yourself….

Congratulations James and Lynsey

So, all that’s left is for me to once again wish James and Lynsey a huge congratulations on their wedding. And, of course, a massive thank you to their live wedding band FuncTown aka Func On The Rocks for an outstanding performance. 

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Ibbotson!
