04/02/2012 Get Funked
I just wanted to say what a fantastic job 'Get Funked' did at my 40th birthday party. They certainly lived up to my expectations and literally had everyone on their feet dancing. They were brilliant.
I have had more comments since the party about the band than about any other aspect of the night.
Many thanks for your input and please thank Martyn and the band for making my night so fantastic and a night I will always remember.

"Simply the best gig I've ever been to in London! We bought tickets randomly through seetickets. We were just looking for a fun night out but we couldn't believe it when we got down to the venue. You guys were insanely good, the venue was unbelievable and we had one of the best nights that I can remember!!! I've emailed you already but please please please let me know if you are performing in London again anytime soon! Sarah x"

"I am writing to thank you for providing the most incredible entertainment at Sarah and Darren's wedding last weekend. The positive feedback we have had about Get Funked has been unrelenting! Many people at the event had never seen this band before and so many were asking for contact details as to who we had used and how we had found you!
We would have no hesitation in recommending the band to anyone looking for entertainment of this standard. Working with you throughout the planning has been an absolute pleasure and we cannot thank you enough for helping to make this day so memorable for everybody who was present.
Please would you pass on our thanks to each of the individual members of the band and congratulate them on an incredible performance. Many people have commented on the music between courses which they had never seen before.
Saran and Darren were absolutely delighted with the running order and the atmosphere that Get Funked created throughout the whole evening.
I wish you and the band every success in the future."

Customer review by Chloe Billinghurst
07/06/2011 Get Funked
"Get Funked were without a doubt one of the best parts of our wedding day! Having struggled to find a quality, contemporary band suitable for our occasion, we were thrilled with the standard of Get Funked.
The dance floor was always full, the crowd LOVED the cool setlist which missed new and old, and the way the band got guests involved…we didn’t want it to end!!
A number of our guests have asked for the bands details for their own weddings and we would definitely book them again."
