Since 1990 The Funking Barstewards have sold out almost every major venue in London, they have also played extensively throughout the UK on the University/College circuit.

They are unanimously accepted by the Mean Fiddler organisation as the most successful ‘covers’ band at their venues and were voted ‘Best Live Band’ by their audiences.

Sell out shows at the Forum and the Grand in London, a performance on The Big Breakfast and weekly appearances as the house band on the Sky TV quiz show ‘Roll with it’ have helped increase the band’s popularity.

The band also play extensively at corporate functions and parties. Previous clients include: AXA, Microsoft, Coca Cola UK, Mercury Communications, Parcel Force, Warner Home Video, B.B.H., American Express, Warburgs, Godman, The London Stock Exchange, BBC Worldwide, British Airways, Nortel, Hutchison Communications (Orange), Telstar Records, McClaren Racing (at the Royal Albert Hall) and Vodafone (at Earls Court).

Who the ?*%! are we?

In short, The Funking Barstewards cover all the classic disco hits of the 70’s such as “Le Freak”, “Staying Alive”, “Lost in Music”, “Boogie Wonderland”, “We are Family”, “Play That Funky Music”, and “YMCA” climaxing in a show-stopping version of “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

The Funking Barstewards are the perfect band for any night-club, university ball, corporate function, or private party, blending outstanding musical ability with suitably outrageous costumes and humour as they “drag” you back to the decade that taste forgot”
