Introducing Funky Buddha, the ultimate wedding party and corporate event band. Featuring outstanding vocalists, a razor-sharp horn section and a super tight rhythm section. The dance floor won’t stand a chance!
Our set list includes modern and classic hits.
Expect clever arrangements and unexpected twists that will keep you and your guests dancing all night.

Collectively our professional experience ranges from live and recording session work with major artists and labels, tours and festivals across the world and theatre pit work on some of the UK’s biggest stage show productions. We are based in Brighton, but play at events all over the UK and Internationally.

Funky Buddha is also the ultimate band when it comes to versatility. In addition to our upbeat party sets, we can also provide smaller ensembles for jazz or chilled acoustic sets. We can also offer our band members individually for wedding ceremony music or drinks receptions. We even provide DJ music in between our live sets as standard. We can take care of all the music at your event!

Together as a band, we have played at thousands of wedding, party and corporate event gigs throughout the UK and beyond. Passionate about music and experienced in the industry. Whether playing in Dubai for a New Years Eve, performing on top of a bar inside Battersea Power Station for a corporate party or playing in a magical wedding marquee, Funky Buddha creates outstanding and memorable performances.

Funky Buddha can be hired as a 5, 6, 7 or 8 piece band depending on your requirements. The standard band consisting of vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards and drums is enhanced by adding extra vocals and our fantastic horn players.  All lineup options include fully PAT tested PA sound system, lighting for stage area and dance floor.  The band has Public Liability Insurance.
