The Function Band for Weddings, Private Parties & Corporate Events

1960s cover band

We have done this joint venture with comedian Marcel Lucont! Jeanie Barton plays a psycho stalker in this music video filmed in Paris – a role that comes a little too naturally? Anyway, we now also have an organ trio called ‘Schmörgan’ (Matt Ratcliffe on organ, Ian Beestin on drums and Jeanie on vocals and percusion) who create a distinctly 60s vibe, a la Austin Powers, should your event require it – yeah baby!!  Remember we always prepare special requests for free.

Royal Wedding Jazz Music
