Quantcast

Philly Funk is an amazing band to work with. The manager Gary was very easy to work with, knew all the ins and outs of the process and delivered exactly what was promised. The band was a major hit. Every guest we spoke with noted how awesome the band was and they were the highlight of reception. The first dance, father/daughter and mother/son dance songs were all played perfectly. MC for the night was perfect, announcements were clear and fun. Everything flowed smoothly. They coordinated with the staff for cake cutting and an anniversary dance. Overall, they were extremely organized and I was pretty hands off. I asked them to play songs that would get people on the dance floor, I didn’t pick out a list of songs in advance. It worked out perfectly. Vocals and music were so on point, the dancefloor was packed for every single song. The mix of new and old songs was perfect. We had a wonderful time and I would truly recommend you pick this band if you want to have an unforgettable reception and cocktail hour. You will not be disappointed. Everyone loved them, I cannot emphasize this enough! Kayla & Jerry

I could not ask for more from a wedding band!! The band set the tone for the night from the first moments. They played to the crowd incredibly well. We did not even bother giving any recommendations or making any requests because the music and the night flowed so smoothly. Almost everyone I've seen since the wedding has made a point to say the band made our wedding day! As an added bonus, they even surprised us by learning our songs for each of the first dances. I cannot thank this band enough for making our day so special!

The Philadelphia Funk Authority did a FANTASTIC job! They were great to work with, flexible and provided EXACTLY what we requested. As the father of the groom, when we arrived at the reception the cocktail and dinner music was classy and elegant. Following dinner, when the dancing started, the dance floor was full from the first dance song to the last dance song. They are worth every penny! As one of our guests posted, "Just left the party of the century! Great food, great friends and wow, The Philadelphia Funk Authority, what a band!"

If you are fortunate enough to get the opportunity to book the Philadelphia Funk Authority, do NOT hesitate. Possibly one of the best decisions I made in wedding planning was booking the band and coordinating the ceremony & reception details with their manager, Gary. From jump street, the Philadelphia Funk Authority is nothing but helpful, informative, creative and reliable -- you can trust them not only to perform on the big day, but also to assist with planning & executing your dream wedding. On top of it all, the band was truly the most talented group of musicians you could ask for. My family and friends still talk about them, nearly every time we see them. The Philadelphia Funk Authority is a treasure to party with and a pleasure to work with, book them!
