It is over the top that there are not hundreds of reviews for THE Funk Monster Band.
Because let us tell you - The FM's blew everyone, old and young, out of the water at our January 2015 Key West Wedding Jam.

If you're into old-school rhythm & blues, funk, classic rock, etc., please, keep reading. We are both avid music lovers, we wanted to bring something DIFFERENT to the stage and researched endlessly in hopes of finding the right group for us. We put our complete trust into the hands of The FM's starting with the actual ceremony. To say they were 100% spot-on, would be a severe understatement. This band makes Marvin, James, and Carlos, incredibly proud.

The FM's were incredibly easy to work with and understood exactly what it was we were looking for. We were a little late in getting song choices into their hands, but it didn't matter; Richard already came up with a setlist - which had 15 of the 18 songs we chose. Considering they have a menu over 200, that only goes to show that Richard's talent and understanding is spot on. We even threw some Soundcloud Remixes their way and they hammered them all with the air of true artistry (search JB's "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" by DJ Stan-Ley & "I Feel Good" by PaysBass). As for the traditional wedding tunes of Etta's, "At Last" and The Isley's, "Shout", Funk Monster's pipes alone had passersby at the Key West Garden Club, literally crashing our Jam.

What truly made the night most memorable though, was the band's rendition of Louis Armstrong's, "La Vie En Rose", that we chose for the walk down the aisle. Richard & Funk Monsters - We both cannot thank you enough. It was a performance that will be remembered and treasured, forever. Thank you, Richard, and please share our thanks with each and every member of your band for you all truly made the night magical.

Funk Monster Band was simply amazing! My guests were ALL out on the dancefloor the whole night - from my 80-year old grandmother to college friends to flower girls. We had so much fun with them, and they were unbelievably professional. Richard James was on top of everything. He made a detailed script and schedule, and kept the reception moving at just the right pace. I had initially thought I would not need them to play during the cocktail hour because I thought my guests would stay in one particular area. It turned out that my guests milled all over the property and into the tent...so FMB took the initiative and began playing beautiful jazz music...without being asked and without extra charge!

During the reception they played awesome high energy dance music that appealed to all ages. Everyone had so much fun. Their mix of songs was great, and they learned the song we wanted for our first dance. I cannot recommend them enough. If I ever have another event, I want Funk Monster Band there!
