WEDDING BAND BIOS
Frontman Medwin is one of the founding members of Totally Funked Up along with guitarist Charlie, though after his appearance on Dragons’ Den, he is probably better known for his day job as a pioneering eco-entrepreneur.
Medwin first took to the stage in the late 90’s as a guitarist while living in Andorra, but soon found that it was his vocal talents which really set him apart. Now with well over 1000 gigs under his belt, Medwin has performed with many of the most talented and respected musicians in the south west.
His love of performing is evident from the energy and infectious enthusiasm he brings to every show.
Medwin bears an uncanny likeness to a certain Queen frontman, and though we are yet to gather conclusive DNA evidence, are pretty sure that Freddie Mercury was actually his father
Charlie Diamond founded the band with Medwin back in 2016.
