“These guys were flawless. Their live sets got all of our guests going. There were only 30 of us due to covid restrictions, but everyone felt uplifted by the funky music. The band didn’t just go through the motions. They really wanted to be at our wedding and wanted to show off their talents. Massive thanks guys. Hope the difficult situation for performers like you resolves itself in the not too distant future.”

5 stars - Funk The Revolution are Highly Recommended booked Funk The Revolution for their event in Berkshire September 2019

“I booked this band around a year before the event based on their online demo videos only, They had a sound that I liked and played music and songs that I related to in my younger days. I dealt with band leader Andy around a month or so before the event, he came across really friendly, helpful and thorough ensuring that the band played my choice of songs. The evening was really outstanding, a complete success with lots of people dancing and enjoying the sounds. So many people commented on how good the band were, They were certainly a very classy slick professional act and hence created a real feel good factor and great vibe throughout the evening. I am so pleased, and certainly would not hesitate to use these guys again. Thank you FTR!!”
