Testimonial for Gabrielle and Andrew’s wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn, June 28th 2015.


I’ve never seen a band work so hard to ensure that their audience were having a good time. Funky Treacle were so amazing and made sure everyone was dancing at my wedding, ALL night!

They are not only very talented and very professional but also bring a lot of fun to proceedings. Catherine has an amazing voice and Neil is charismatic and quite frankly a musical genius.  I could not be happier and cannot recommend them highly enough.  Thank you doesn’t seem quite enough, but it’s all I have, so thank you guys. I hope very much to see you perform again soon!

Testimonial for Frances and Iain’s wedding at Colshaw Hall, 28th December 2015


Thank you SO much Neil Shaw-Hulme and your amazing band, Funky Treacle!!! My husband and I (arghhhhhh) had the most incredible day and you made it so personal to us. We really appreciate all you did for us...sax playing, playlists during the meal and band breaks and of course for the great sets you did. We absolutely loved it!! Of course a true highlight was the new addition of the treacles....bestest friends a girl could wish for! Xxxx


(At this wedding we arranged for the bridesmaids, who were all trained musicians and singers, to play a Motown medley as a surprise for the new couple. Please note these things are not left to chance and have time constraints. We would never leave anything to chance and ‘busk’ through something on your special day.)

Tesimonial for 'One in a Million Ball' at Mere Golf and Country Club 6th February 2016

We have been to a number of events hosted by Funky Treacle and we were so impressed by the quality of music and range of music played that we booked them for our Inaugural ‘One in a Million Ball’ in February 2016, to raise money for Epilepsy Action in memory of our daughter, Carla.

Headed up by Neil Shaw-Hulme,   Funky Treacle arrived promptly and professionally set up and checked  all their equipment – at the end the were very accommodating and played additional tunes by popular demand!

The Ball had 250 guests from a wide range of ages and the Band managed to accommodate everyone’s tastes as everyone was dancing on the dance floor.

The band were absolutely superb from beginning to end and a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend them highly enough for any event. The singers and musical ability of the individual members of the Band is clearly apparent and explains why they have worked with so many top Bands in the past.

We were so delighted with their service that we immediately booked them for our second Charity Ball next February, where we hope to have twice as many people! They contributed hugely to the success of the event.

Both you and the band were fantastic from the initial meeting right through to the big day.  All of the wedding guest said that you were extremely good and very talented! I would also like to say a massive thank to Neil (and the band) for leaning The Wurzels song it went down very well with the young farmers!! I would definitely recommend both you and the band to anyone that would be having an event and hope to see you guys soon.
