=====================

The Man From Funkle are a well established, professional disco & funk band that make any occasion the funkiest party in town.
The main members of The Man From Funkle met at the Musicians' Institute, London, in 1996 and it was apparent from early on that they had a rapport which would springboard them into the class of professional musicians. The band, over the years, has taken its members all over the country and abroad. With the introduction of Swedish-born Helena Berlin, "Vocalist of the Year" at the Musicians' Institute 1998, the band were taken to a new level and style.
The Man From Funkle is now an established professional, yet fun, live band that specialises in 70's Disco and Funk cover music. Artistes/bands covered include Sister Sledge, Chic, The Pointer Sisters, The Bee Gees and Gloria Gaynor.
Many of the gigs to date have been private parties, Weddings, University functions and corporate events. During 1999 and 2000 these have included supporting Terrorvision, performing at a Sony Music corporate function, various nightclubs and Wembley Conference Centre.

Some of the bands most recent clients include:
