Philly Funk did an outstanding performance for Alison & Seans wedding.

They made the wedding very special with lots of memories for all who attended.

One guest said: "You know the band is great when everyone is still here dancing in the 4th set".

Thanks for all you do,

Much appreciated,

Cheers

We just got married at The Farm at Eagles Ridge in Lancaster PA and all we can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH! It was honestly the best wedding we've ever been to, not just because it was ours, but because The Philly Funk Authority was a part of it. The level of energy was beyond our expectations. Even after two weeks, we are still hearing about how amazing they were and getting emails/texts for their information. ALL guests (our little cousins, our friends, our parents, our parents friends) were totally blown away by the performance. We kept hearing "every song they played was awesome", "they killed it", "I couldn't stop dancing". This is exactly what we had in mind for our wedding and The Philly Funk Authority really pulled through for us. We were told we really set the bar high and that any other friends of ours getting married soon will have to think long and hard about how to top it (hell yes). We both acknowledge that the band was a HUGE part of this. We absolutely recommend them to anyone who's looking for live music for their wedding :)

Not only was the performance amazing, but they were true professionals. They helped orchestrate the evening smoothly which helped alleviate any concerns we had since we didn't have a wedding planner.

Again, thank you so much for contributing to the best day of our lives. It will never be forgotten.

Anyone who is thinking of booking live music, you need to check these guys out

I could not recommend this band more highly - they absolutely made our event. If you are looking for a live band to rock the house and who are awesome and professional to work with on your special day/event - this is the only band to call. You will not be disappointed.

Philadelphia Funk Authority was hands down the best part of our wedding! My husband and I saw them last year at a wedding and knew we wanted them for our own. They were easy to work with and Gary (so sorry for all the emails) was extremely accommodating! They learned songs for our father/daughter and mother/son dances. The dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone loved the music. Even my husband who does not dance was on the floor most of the night! I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding as special and fun as it was! I highly recommend Philadelphia Funk Authority for your next wedding or special event. You will not be disappointed!

I have used the Philly Funk Authority in my previous job for corporate and social events. There is no other way to say it, but this band seriously rocks. I have had close to 50 people email me so far (and rave reviews are still coming in) to shout out the awesomeness of the band and that it was the highlight of the night. Fantastic from start to finish, they helped to walk me through the process, were flexible on the programming to make it our wedding, learned our favorite songs to incorporate in and gave me the confidence to have them handle the emcee duties.

Even our venue, which pumps out approximately 4-6 weddings per week, raved about the professionalism and how they elevated the entire event. People were on the dance floor even during dinner service, which was exactly the tone we wanted to set. Also, they were able to read the crowd and tailor the song list accordingly to a varied age group so that everyone was happy. They even gave a shout out to my Mom and played her favorite Rolling Stones song (she will never forget that).

I can't wait for the next opportunity to work with these guys again and our 25th wedding anniversary can't come soon enough!

The band was very fun and active. Everyone was saying afterwards how fun it was, because of them!
They were great to work with, including working around our schedules and going above and beyond with our requests.

We would absolutely have them play for us again, and recommend them to others!
Thank you Philly Funk!

From the beginning of the planning, to the day of the wedding, Gary and Philly Funk made everything incredibly easy. The level of professionalism, on and off the stage, was amazing and Gary was a great resource for planning the reception and managing the reception timeline. Once Philly Funk was on the stage.....the party started. I have played music since I was a young kid. I majored in music performance in college, and have played in countless bands. I can say, without reservation, Philly Funk is one of the tightest and best outfits I have ever heard. If you want your wedding to be a party you and your guests will NEVER forget, hire Philly Funk authority.

Philadelphia Funk Authority did a fantastic job at our wedding! We booked this band because my sister had them at her wedding in June 2012, and they were so amazing that we knew we had to have them for our wedding. They were even one of the first vendors we booked. The band played a variety of music genres and all of the specific requests we had given them to play. They had the dance floor full our entire wedding!

Gary, the band manager, is great! He is very responsive and happy to answer any and all of our questions. Very helpful and professional! They were very easy to work with and made this part of the wedding planning very simple.

We highly recommend Philly Funk!
