Where to start, after the most amazing day filled with lots of love and happiness. It was then onto our evening reception, a chance for guests to dance the night away listening to some amazing live music, which the Funk and Soul Family offered in abundance. Myself and Mark really could not thank the band enough, their talent and adaptability to music is really second to non!! The Funk and Soul Family had style and stage presence, which added a new spark of energy to our day, the dance floor being full of people we love enjoying music we love.

You guys were just fantastic on Sunday night. Thanks so much for making our evening such a success, you have won a lot more fans who now all know exactly why we were so keen to have you play at our party. All the very best for now, until our next major celebration - I'll be back in touch then!

Funk Soul Family were the perfect addition to our wedding from start to finish. From the early stages with Pete being so helpful, helping us decide what we wanted for the music at our wedding and the timings of our evening reception, to the guys making a special effort to learn our first dance song which meant so much to us. Funk Soul Family gave our reception the fun relaxed and party atmosphere that they wanted. All of our guests commented on how amazing they were and that the music got everyone from all ages up dancing on their feet. The night couldn't have finished off any better with a conga from the whole wedding party. The bands performance from start to finish was amazing and there professionalism was unfaultable. We can't thank Funk Soul Family enough for making our evening so personal and memorable. Thank you once again to you all! Amy & Phil
