"The band were simply fantastic! The music was of an extremely high standard and quality - it was really easy to hear the singers which isn't always the case with live music. They helpfully sent us a playlist and we were able to choose exactly what we wanted played. They even learnt a couple of new numbers for us. The playlist appealed to all ages at our wedding and the dance floor was packed all night. When the band took breaks they played a Spotify playlist we had set up and sent them. Every aspect of the gig was really personal to us and we loved everything! To top it all off, the band were really understanding and helpful in setting up slightly earlier than originally planned, letting us use their microphone for our speeches and packing up quickly and efficiently at the end of the evening. We really cannot sing their praises highly enough and would readily recommend them to anyone looking for a live band. We paid a little extra to have more musicians in the line-up and wow!...it was worth every penny!"
Wedding Band Review
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for Saturday night. Apologies for not getting to say goodbye either, it's really manic having to get round all the guests and you completely lose track of time. The end of the night was upon us before I knew it. It was just perfect and there were so many great comments about how good you were. I had so many people saying you were the best band they'd ever heard. I got to enjoy your music as much as I could before being pulled in all sorts of directions!"
Wedding Band Review
"Fantastic band. Great sound, great voices and wonderful presence on set and off set. Lovely people to work with. Made the event that much better. At one stage almost everyone was on the dance floor."
Event Band Review
"I would like to thank you and the Band for being so brilliant at our event last last night! The whole evening was a great success but made even better by the Band. I have had a number of people asking me your name and how to contact you. Please thank everyone you were all great."
Wedding Band Review
"Thanks you so much for playing at Antonia and Miha's wedding party. Everyone loved it all. So glad it went off well and that you were given a good supper. Trust you got back safely"
Wedding Band Review
"Just wanted to let you know the Funky Nation Band I booked this Saturday for my 40th Birthday were superb. They were all very professional, friendly and great performers and Chris was great at communicating up to the event. I would thoroughly recommend them and use them again. Kind regards and thank you, Funky Nation made my party and everyone was very impressed."
Birthday Party Band Review
"When I asked my wedding planner to give me the name of the best band she had seen, she led me to you Funky Nation...I'm so glad she did! When I looked you up I knew you were the band for me and after to speaking to Huw personally it only confirmed it for me. Everything i write just seems so lame but I am a perfectionist and you were perfection, From the Jazz in the sunshine, to the first dance, to the pure funk in the evening. Everybody was dancing from 3-78 yr olds and even the teenagers were dancing and enjoying themselves (and not even in an ironic way lol). Although I didnt have time to talk to you, I didnt need too I was in safe hands, my guests did though and they said you were the most friendly easy going bunch of dudes ever. My only two regrets are: 1. I wasn't a guest so had to be sensible lol 2. I did that much of a good job, my daughter's prep school have asked me to be the events co-ordinator.....they also have you in mind for the Bi-annual Ball. So Funky Nation, I would like to thank you all!"
Wedding Band Review
"Just wanted to say what a fantastic job the band did on the night - they blew everyone away! Everyone was asking how we got them and how we found the band as they were so so good! Both Jamie and I were highly impressed with the seamless-ness of the day and how everything went so so well. There's already talk of having a big party for our first year anniversary, so I will be in touch for you if we decide to do this and ask Funky Nation to come back and play for our friends and family! Thank you so much again for your help in making our wedding day the best day of our lives."
Wedding Entertainment Review
"Now the dust has settled and June and I have returned to earth from cloud 9 can we both please take this opportunity to thank you and your band for a most fabulous evening. The quality of the music was superb and we have received so many comments on the fantastic music you played. As an indication of how well the party went, you even managed to get my 82 year old Mother onto the dance floor - A sight which has not been seen since 1976 !!!! Thank you. In fact at one point you had everyone from a 6 year old child to an 82 yr old grandmother all on the dance floor at the same time - an example of the diversity of the music you played."
Party Band Review
"I have been meaning to write thanking all of you guys for your great music at our wedding party. I can't praise you all highly enough. You kept us all heaving on the floor all the time. Just great! And a special mention of your singer. I don't know how she managed to remember her lyrics under such extreme and sustained adoring provocation!"
Wedding Band Review
"Overall, we couldn't have been happier with booking Funky Nation. The event was a great success.Chris and the rest of the band, were a pleasure to work with, as they were punctual, polite, respectful, flexible and overall extremely professional. Most importantly, the whole band sounded great on the night, with a funky set list and performance, enhanced by back up vocals and a brass section, that was perfect for the occasion and guaranteed that the dance floor was full with some very dodgy dancing! We received excellent feedback and enquiries from many of our guests, who were impressed by the quality of the band and said they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves. So, a massive thank you goes out to Funky Nation and we certainly recommend you to any potential wedding or event organisers. Thank you again!"

"Thank you so much for the great music for Sam and Laura's wedding yesterday. It was a great day from start to finish and the band really added to everyone's enjoyment. Please pass on my thanks to all."
Wedding Band Review
"Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band. We thought you were awesome, and received plenty of compliments about you on the night and since :-) Thank you so much for learning Steady As We Go (it was perfect!) and Lucky Man (we made Laura cry hah) for us. And glad you enjoyed the food so much too!"
Wedding Band Review
"The icing on our wedding cake... These guys are absolutely top drawer. For those who just want to hit the dance floor, they know how to please a crowd with endless banging tunes from all eras. For the more discernible music lovers, the talent is evident throughout the band, perfectly tight and clearly very accomplished musicians. They took our wedding day to the next level and the feedback from our guests was consistently excellent. In particular, they had to be flexible given a significant delay to our schedule, and they got on with the job without a fuss. In a word, awesome!"
Live Wedding Band
"Funky Nation were excellent and we could not have hoped for a better band to play at our wedding. We had previously seen them perform at a wedding fair and a gig but on the night they were even better than we remembered them. We had guests coming up to us all evening saying how good they were and that they were amazing. Since the wedding when talking with family and friends, we still get frequent references to how impressive they were and how much people enjoyed the music. It was great that they did a range of music from 60s to modern day as it appealed to everyone and having them play our first dance was brilliant."
