Dear John and Cheryl
Just to say a big thank you for the part you played in making our day so special. Every aspect of the day was perfect for us and we received many comments about the service and the music performed by Ariella Strings. You were a pleasure to deal with. You just turned up and got on with it which is what you need when we had so much to organise and think of on the day.
Rob and Fab, Castle Ashby 15th August 2015 – Wedding Blessing
"We met Totally Funktional at a wedding we went to in the December, we booked them last minute but were so glad they were free. They are professional from the moment we booked them to the end of the night at the wedding. The music was great for all the guests at the wedding and the dance floor was packed with every song. We wished we had booked the venue for longer so the band could have kept playing. All our guests 2 months on still comment about how great the band were and how they were to blame for some pulled muscles and sore feet from dodgy dance moves and dancing the night away. To say they caused a lot of disco damage would be an understatement"
