Funky Town performed at our wedding in December and they helped make the day really special. The music was fantastic - they got everyone up and dancing and we received lots of lovely feedback. They were so helpful before/during - basically just accommodating all our requests and answering questions we had. Thanks a lot to all the band, you were brilliant!Holly and James Down

We just wanted to say a massive to thank you to all the members of Funky Town for making our wedding night so much fun! You were so professional and played a ton of our favourite songs we had requested. Book this guys and you won't be disappointed! Xx Joseph and Laura, wedding at Hexham Winter Gardens – 28th October 2016 Joseph and Laura

We had Funky Town for our wedding evening at Lumley Castle and they were a perfect choice. For such an occasion with a mix of ages and tastes it is not always easy to find the right band and music mix to suit everyone. Funky Town put on a great show with the perfect blend of music available in their repertoire to choose from so that everyone had a great night. Thank you!!Loreta & Howard

Just want to say a huge thank you to the amazing Funky Town. They played at our wedding at Guyzance Hall in June. They were extremely professional and really listened to what we wanted. The music was outstanding and the dance floor was packed all night. We were so impressed. Cannot rate them highly enough and would definitely recommend. The highlight was their rendition of Three Little Birds by Bob Marley which they learnt for our first dance. Thanks again to all of you- you really made our night!Claire and Ed Cotton

You guys really were amazing! You made the night so special and everyone was commenting on how great you are! Thank you and very well done!Gill Porter

Just want to say a massive thank you to you all. We had a brilliant night thanks to Funky Town! Good luck in the future! Jan Ellis

I would like to say a huge Thank you to Funky Town for playing at The WECare charity ball at the Hilton Gateshead. What talented musicians you all are and you did an amazing job of getting everyone up and dancing all night. You played a great mix of songs and everyone commented how fabulous you were. You were professional to deal with in every respect and I will be recommending you to others organising weddings or events.Mandy Ball

To say you guys were great would be a major understatement. We knew from your repertoire and online reel that you guys were going to be good, but you blew everyone away. Your vocals and musicianship were just outstanding and all of our guests had a total blast. Not surprisingly, several people told me "this is the best wedding band I've ever seen." We agree and were particularly impressed with your ability to fuse new music with funk and disco classics to make truly excellent sets. And you played our wedding song perfectly. Best moment of my life. We really cannot thank you guys enough for making the trip to Italy to celebrate with us. If Alex and I are ever in Newcastle drinks are on us!! :) Please send our sincere thanks to everyone in the band. What a night!Jake and Alex

I just wanted to email to say: Thank you so much for the amazing set you played at our wedding. You absolutely made the day for us and from the very start you guys were so accommodating and made the whole experience of hiring a band a very enjoyable experience. All our guests gave us such amazing feedback on you guys and you can tell the music went down a storm when the dance floor is full all night long. We will certainly recommend you to all our family and friends whenever they are having an event.Iain and Gaynor
