I would just like to take this opportunity to say that FunXion 5 were absolutely fantastic and really helped make our night memorable! They got everybody dancing and managed to cater to a wide variety of ages and music tastes. Many of our guests approached us and commentated at how good the music was and how much they enjoyed it. You just cannot beat a quality live band! The DJing afterwards was also great, with lots of disco classics and modern hits to keep our guests on their feet. A great way...

We can't recommend FunXion 5 more highly! They did a fantastic job performing at our wedding and kept the dance floor full all night! We looked at a lot of bands without finding the right mix of style and instruments we wanted - so we were thrilled when we came across FunXion 5 who fit the bill perfectly. They were happy to learn and play an amazing rendition of our first dance (Waterloo Sunset). We particularly appreciated how friendly and helpful Jared was during the planning. A big thank you!

Everyone loved it and I got lots of comments from the guests saying how much they all enjoyed it. Being a professional singer myself, they even allowed me up on stage to sing Valerie d...
