We had high expectations of funXion5, as other reviews and demo's were so positive. They were truly amazing, with quality and skills that blew us, and all our guests away. We had many compliments on the band afterwards. Cant recommend funXion5 highly enough. Thanks funXion5!

FunXion 5 were a fantastic band, really professional, great to work with leading up to the event and a very talented group of people. Added great atmosphere to our event, all of the members of the band were lively, energetic and interacted with the audience during their performance. Would highly recommend for any type of event and would book them again in the future! Thank you for helping us put on such a successful event, we had great feedback from all of the attendees.

I cannot recommend Funxion5 enough! We found them online as didnt know any bands in the local area and instantly knew from their website and videos that they were what we wanted for our wedding entertainment and they didn’t disappoint! Jared was always on hand to answer questions and provided us with all the information we needed ahead of our day. They learnt our first dance song for us and it was utterly perfect! We’ve had so many amazing comments from our events!
Caroline Hodge• Aug. 19, 2023
We had the best evening with FunXion 5. They played at a party we hosted for family and friends and everyone said how much fun they'd had. We loved them. They turned up punctually, set up in good time, played all the music we love and got everyone up on the dance floor, all night long. It couldn't have gone any better. Huge thanks to them.
Susan Nash• Aug. 20, 2022
We originally booked FunXion 5 back in 2019 for our original wedding which was meant to take place in May 2020. COVID delayed the wedding and we had to reschedule several times. Jared and the band couldn’t have been more accommodating. The communication from them every step of the way was clear, prompt and super helpful. They assisted us with a PA speaker for our speeches, arriving early to help set it up. Performance wise they were fantastic. The song choices were excellent, there was a real range in eras and kept our guests dancing all night. We requested Carla as the singer and she was superb, as were all the band members.
Robert Green• July 30, 2022
We have given 3 large parties with live music in the last few years, most recently this July for a 70th Birthday party. All the performers did a good job but the standouts have been FunXion 5. Picking suitable music was no problem - we were offered an extensive repertoire, from hits of the 60's till today, and Jared Martin from the band worked with us to create a playlist that was perfect for the occasion. The band did an acoustic set outdoors for background during pre-dinner drinks and canapes, and also organised a playlist of pre-recorded music to be broadcast through their sound system between sets. There therefore was no need for a DJ. And delivery on the night couldn't have been better - you could see the band really care about their work. The ultimate accolade is simple though - FunXion 5 kept our dance floor packed throughout their two sets. The energy levels were really high right up until the last number, and even habitual wall flowers joined the action!
