Your new favourite funk, soul and R&B band!



The Midnight Funk Orchestra’s repertoire covers lots of the very best music from the 1960s to the present day, encompassing raw funk, heartfelt soul, shimmering grooves and sophisticated R&B from the likes of Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Pharrell Williams and Beyoncé. Our sets are packed full of dancefloor-fillers and crowd favourites!


We are always happy to tailor what we play to suit your event, and can often accommodate specific requests if you give us enough advance notice. As well as our usual varied performances, the band can do themed sets such as playing only songs from the Motown era, disco classics from the 70s, or more contemporary hits from the 90s onwards.


If you’re planning a wedding, you might like to look at our popular first dances as well as the longer list of songs on this page.
