‘Funk City have played at my venue for the last 5 years and every time they come they rock the house and get everyone dancing and singing along!’ Ian, Owner- The Jolly Gardeners, Earlsfield playing 2009-2015

‘You played all my favourite songs!’ Robert Downey Jr – Actor 2013

‘You guys are great… really awesome…’ Kevin Spacey – Actor 2013

‘Thank you very much. It was lovely. Funk City have been amazing, we really enjoyed the whole day, and they made it special for us. All our guests were asking about them and told us how much they loved them. They had a really good mix of tunes, they’re professional, really nice and friendly guys. On time, they were setting already up before I even realized they arrived. They made the day really special and whenever we need a band again we will ask for them.’ Mary, June 2016

‘You guys are sick! I LOVED it. We should have a jam…’  Ed Sheeran – Musician 2013

‘Hey thanks… At the next party… I’d love to have you back…’ Val Kilmer – Actor 2012

‘Just to thank you and your band members very much for playing at our wedding. YOU GUYS WERE TERRIFIC!! Everybody had lots of fun and complimented the quality of the live music. I understand that was your fifth night playing in a row. We would not have known, thanks for all the energy. We wish you all the best with your future gigs/projects. Thanks again and rock on’ Oliver and Siobhan July 1016

‘Thank you so much! You really made the night and everybody loved you!’ Ben Falloon, April 2015 & 2016

‘What an AMAZING band!!!! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty from the minute you started playing right through to the end of our evening! What lovely guys, Craig their drummer helped organise everything with us beforehand in the weeks leading up to the wedding and nothing was too much trouble for them 🙂 And our first dance song was just perfect and meant so much to us 🙂 We cannot thank you enough ‘ Becki & Sam McKindrey x July 2016

‘Hi Craig, Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for Sat!!  Everyone had a brilliant time and was saying how good the music was!  The dance floor was full all night!!  You guys did such a great job.  Can’t recommend you enough – you made it very easy for us! Thanks again!’  Laura & Adie x April 2016

‘Funk City played at my wedding in Oxford in the Spring and were just exceptional.  Craig was so prefessional both pre the wedding and on the day itself, he coordianted brilliantly with the venue and left me absolutely free from worry. The music itself was brilliant, every at the wedding was left wanting to hear more.  They got everyone in the room up and dancing and each individual there (them included) couldn’t stop smiling. Thank you for making my wedding day perfect!’ Caroline Dickson March 2015

‘We were so impressed with you and had so many compliments afterwards on our choice of band. I was also pleased at your level of organisation – you were so professional from start to finish, which left me feeling so relaxed on the day itself.I’ve attached some pictures we have of you and ther band- feel free to use them as you will! Lovings! x ‘ Carly Duncan Sept 2015

‘Thank you again for making our day so memorable’ Jim Duncan Sept 2015

‘Thank you for the music. Best night ever! I will recommend you to all my friends for ALL OCCASIONS ‘ xx Lucy Trodd Feb 2012

‘Such great guys! Really knew how to get everyone up dancing with a great pick of non-cheese! Amazing band, great energy! Would defo recommend!!’  Liz Turner June 2009

‘These guys performed at a wedding I was shooting and WOW was the room rocking! It was impossible to take a photo where someone looked miserable! Absolutely brilliant band.’ David Craik Wedding Photographer Aug 2014

‘Hello, Colin and I discovered Funk City when they played at Be At One bar at London’s Kings Cross during a messy night out celebrating not long getting engaged. Not only were they churning out some great tunes that got us dancing but their own personal (and sometimes rude) take on the lyrics had us in stitches. We knew they’d be perfect for our big day.
We got married at Watergate Bay Hotel in April 2016 with 40 guests. The weather was incredible, the day went perfectly, and it was topped off with an epic performance by Funk City in the evening.  They were honestly the one part of the wedding I did not need to worry or obsess about. They had everyone up and dancing, laughing at their personalised lyrics, all the men doing ‘Rambo ties’, and inspired a dance off!!
What also made them great was just how lovely they are to deal with, very laid back but very attentive to detail. They even joined us all on the beach for fireworks at midnight!
Everyone commented on how amazing they were, and we were absolutely thrilled with their performance!
We completely recommend them to play at your event, you won’t regret it!
Thanks Funk City for helping to make our wedding the best! x Kate McCoy. April 2016

‘We used to listen to these guys play at our local pub in Earlsfield and when we got engaged we couldn’t think of a more perfect band to play at our wedding. They did the most fantastic job and the dance floor at our wedding was quite literally jumping to their tunes. Would recommend these guys to anyone, in fact my brother ended up having them at his wedding 2 years later ! If you want your wedding to turn into a fantastic and very memorable party then book these guys!’ Catherine Jannetta January 2007

‘If you are looking at this website thinking “should I?, shouldn’t I?” then….. you most definitely should (and please invite me to your event so that I can listen to Craig and the band again!).
We were fortunate enough to have Funk City play at our wedding in August 2014. When planning such an occasion of course you only get one shot to make the right choice. I cannot stress enough that this band will create an atmosphere and a night to remember. The mixture of fun, professionalism and skill had our guests on the dance floor all night.
A ‘thank you’ is not enough. Several guests have asked for your details so hopefully I will have the pleasure of your musical artistry again. and….
RAMBO TIES. hah!’ Micheal Sugar Aug 2010

‘Funk City played at our marquee wedding in September 2015. We chose Funk City because we had heard them at another event and been blown away – it was the first wedding we had been to where every single guest was desperately trying to get a space on the dance floor to get in on the action….so for us, asking Craig and the team if they could make our wedding one to remember…was a no brainer.
In the run-up to our wedding Craig was amazing with all his advice and tips for us about the wedding day based on his experience with other weddings. The team were so professional on the day, arrived earlyto set-up and during the sets knew exactly what to play to get the crowd eased in and then all going crazy with the music. It was amazing.
All of our guests were WOWed by Funk City – they are so original. The way they make the songs their own, really makes a difference in making them the WOW factor. We LOVED every minute of the music / dancing at our wedding, and know our guests did. Many of them have already booked up Funk City for other events. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!’ Carrie Knight Sept 2014

‘Awesome wedding band, fun, engaging, entertaining, funny and even better they sound great as well! Their ability to work a crowd is really useful at a wedding as there is such a mix of ages but they really rocked at our wedding in July this year! Thanks Craig and Simon for a brilliant evening of entertainment!’ Heather Boyd-Savage June 2015

‘They were brilliant! Thanks for the ROCK.’ Dave & Christine April 2006

‘This is the 3rd time we have had Funk City for our annual Ladies’ Night, they get better very time’ John Paul Still 2012-2015

‘Funk City came highly recommended and played at our winter wedding in January 2014. They more than lived up to their reputation. Craig’s advice from the start was extremely helpful and made the day and night for us. They were happy to learn new songs, perfect older ones for our first dance and even had a cool jazz set with a sax for the drinks reception which all of the guests loved. We have had so many compliments from our guests in relation to the music that Funk City provided! Every time I was lucky enough to get near the dance floor it was full!! Thanks guys you were awesome! Ross Comber Sept 2013

‘We were lucky enough to have Funk City for our wedding last year and I’m so sorry its taken me so long to write!!! I’m trying to think of something eloquent and profound to say to do you AWESOME rockers the correct amount of justice…. but what just keeps popping into my head is WOW!!! Wow, wow, wow, wow, WOW in fact!!! From our first (and very lengthy) conversation, right the way through to you being the last men standing with us adorned in glasses, feather boas, blow up microphones and blow up guitars, you guys absolutely ROCKED!!! You injected the fun into everything… even from the planning stages with lots of really genuinely helpful advice that sorted me out when things were starting to feel a bit overwhelming and the excitement had gone! The mix of music we had we had was just perfect – from cool sax music for the reception drinks, through to big band classics that got everyone dancing….. you even managed to support Jamie in a completely unrehearsed performance for our guests… covering the odd few bum notes and carrying him through when he almost forgot his words! I have only fond and happy memories of just what a fun time we had with you…. when I think about you all, I just get a massive smile on my face and I literally cannot think of anything that would have made it, or you any better. You were absolutely PERFECT for us and totally clicked with us as a couple, completely understanding what we were looking for and then MORE than delivering it on the day. I would not have even the tiniest hesitation in giving you the hugest recommendation to anyone looking for an amazing band….. we just need another party now so we can see you again!!!! THANK YOU so much for making our day. Lots of love, Nellie & Jamie xxxxx’ Nellie Spurden Sept 2013

‘We hired these awesome guys for our wedding this summer and could not have been happier. I think the music is one of the important parts of any wedding reception – you want to get everyone dancing! Funk City were unforgettable, especially with their Fresh Prince medley which got everyone singing and dancing – including the die-hard people watchers! Everyone was talking about you guys for weeks after and I am so pleased you helped us throw an unforgettable party. Funk City did a beautiful rendition of our first dance song choice (which they learnt for us) as well as plenty of classics you will know and love. I wouldn’t hesitate to book these guys again and highly recommend them to anyone for any occasion where you want to get people dancing. Everyone loves to get up and support a band so you’ll be guaranteed a good night – don’t risk a quiet dance floor with a DJ playing oldies, get these guys to funk things up for you.’ Ruth Bonner May 2014

‘Great working with you guys today at Aldi Bury St Edmunds – had a blast you guys are not only great musicians you’re a great laugh too – cheers guys’ Rob Bowker January 2006

‘You made my 30th birthday party! Great songs, you guys performed with style, panache and oodles of FUNK! Loved it. Thanks again! (P.S. your Shabba medley was hilarious – my sister mentions it every time I speak to her!)’ Stephanie Richards January 2011

‘The best night ever. You rocked my party. So cheeky and funny. Thank you so much for making my night one to remember. It wouldnt surprise me if you got a lot of bookings from my friends. Everyone was talking about you. Thanks again. X’ Shane Hill June 2014

‘Funk City really kick started our Christmas party and got all the staff up and dancing. (not an easy task with our lot!) We will definitely use them next year and recommend them to anyone who need to hire a band’ Sarah, West London, March 2016
