Absolutely fantastic and provided a great party atmosphere! Would highly recommend this extremely professional band. Our wedding dance floor was full all night!

Funk You Up are the best band I’ve ever come across and I’m so happy they were available for our wedding! These fantastic singers and musicians did an amazing cover of our (slightly obscure) first dance song, and kept the party going from there. The dance floor was packed for the whole evening and they kept the party going with a brilliant mix of old and new hits. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone!

I wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding – you were absolutely amazing – everyone commented on how great you were and that you were one of the best bands they have seen at a wedding. You literally got everyone up on the dance floor – all night (couldn’t get me off)!! Your DJ sets in between live sets was perfect too. Seriously, thank you so much, you made our evening party so special and a night to remember – all guests have mirrored that comment too. I’d recommend you to anyone getting married!
