Megan and Chris - 2018

“ The Canapes were an excellent band for our charity auction, the crowd really loved them and it was great to have them roaming around the venue. ”

Sarah, Charity Event, Christie's, London, March 2022

" Dear Joe and Will, I can't begin to thank you enough for last evening. You were a huge hit, everyone loved your music, and I only wish we could have had more! Thanks for being so flexible, learning new songs, and dealing with a constantly changing programme. "

Sally - 2020

“ The Canapes provided a very professional service with the quirky, fun vibe I was looking for - adding a little something extra to the networking event. Function Central were really easy to work with and answered all of my questions promptly. ”

Karina, Corporate Event, ICC Capital Suite, ExCeL, London, April 2022

“ The Canapes were really well received. 10/10. ”

Karen, Private Event, The Old Tollgate Hotel & Restaurant, Bramber, June 2022

“ The Canapes were absolutely fantastic! What amazing guys. They had everyone up dancing at our wedding and their music was just incredible. Their set list is what made us choose them as it’s awesome. 100% recommend Will and Joe. Just totally lovely guys. Function central was great when our original wedding band cancelled before our wedding. We were able to find the Canapes who we actually preferred to the original band. Things definitely happen for a reason. ”

Emma, Wedding, Lower House Farm, Longtown, July 2022
