The best wedding band! Could not be better!

5 stars - The Funktown Express are Highly Recommended
booked The Funktown Express for their Wedding in Cheshire

“Ash and the rest of the band were amazingly accommodating throughout the day. They played a “unique” first dance request to perfection and had people on the dance floor all night long. We really could not have asked for a more fun and exciting band. They have an amazing set list and brilliant voices! Cannot recommend enough!”
