Formed in 2019, we are a 5 piece, female led, high energy function and party band consisting of vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards & drums. Our set is focussed on soul and funk classics, playing a wide selection of songs from many different decades from 60s through to modern popular songs played with a funk edge. All 5 members of the band are experienced performers and musicians, some are successful solo performers, others are in other popular bands.
We charge a set fee for the hire of the band for 2 hours. Travel expenses are charged in addition for any gig further than an hour away from their primary location (Tenterden).

Along with the signed contract, a deposit of 30% of the band fee is all that is required to secure the booking.

“Where to begin.
My uncle wanted to book Fit 2 Funk for his 60th birthday having heard them play in Kent. He unfortunately never made it to his 60th but Fit2Funk made sure they were able to honour his wishes and play at his memorial instead.
From the moment they were booked, they were incredible. The professionalism and empathy they showed during a difficult time was much appreciated and certainly helped to make things easier.
Once they arrived, were set up and opened with “Play that funky music” everyone was obsessed.
These guys are awesome. They sound fantastic, they are genuinely lovely people, they play all the funk classics you know and didn’t know you knew and they are the epitome of kind and professional. And very, very talented.
I can’t thank you enough and look forward to hearing you play again”

“What a fantastic band! Fit 2 Funk played our wedding and were just amazing.
Firstly the band members were all super friendly and really know their craft,
professional from the moment they set foot on the venue. The playlist was also
spot on, in addition to their usual funky set, they learnt a few special songs
to personalise the set for us! They were a standout part of our wedding day and
everyone was talking about how much fun they’d had on the dance floor.
Thank you Fit 2 Funk!”

Fit2Funk played at my 60th birthday party recently and were just perfect for the occasion!
The marquee was packed with people dancing and having a brilliant time! Many friends
commented afterwards and said how great the band were! Thank you Pat, Kelly et al xxx
