Testimonials ‘Having the Absolute Funk Band at our wedding reception worked really, really well and definitely would recommend them for anyone else who is thinking about a band for their wedding day. The selection of music they played throughout the evening was incredible, various music which suited everyone and from the moment the band started our guests were up dancing! The energy that they brought to their performance was electric and you could tell they wanted to perform their best!!!! We had nothing but praise for them and the singer (Georgia) we had was amazing!!! Incredible vocal performance. We booked the band quite late but Joel made it possible to which we will be most grateful and will always resonate in our minds as the best day of our lives!!! Thank you very much from a very happy couple.’ Lorelei and John
— ‘The band were excellent, very good musically and the lead singer was great. All our guests loved the music which we were obviously very pleased with, and the band blended in with our guests at the venue. The band manager Joel was particularly helpful with organising the track for our first dance , sorting our own playlists between their sets, and making announcements through the night. All in all we were very pleased with everything the band did and would happily recommend them.’ Helen and Alexander
‘The perfect accompaniment to our Special Day. Joel was simply magnificent and played before the service, and was a great addition throughout our Wedding Breakfast. All our guests really appreciated the atmosphere he created and we would highly recommend including him as part of your day. The band had everybody dancing with their fabulous mix of modern and classic music, and really made our evening reception extra special. If you’re thinking of a band, BOOK THEM!! If they’re playing GO AND WATCH THEM!! Quite simply some of the most talented and genuine musicians out there YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!’ Andy & Kate Rhodes — “I would recommend this band to anyone who wants to get the party started! They really knew how to get the crowd going and created a fantastic atmosphere at our wedding playing all our favourite music to a really high standard. We had several of our guests asking who the band was and how they could book them in the future as they were so impressed. The quality of the musicians was excellent and they were very discreet when setting up and packing away so as not to interfere with our day. A class act.” Heather and Simon Hopley — The band were terrific and we had an amazing party. So many people commented to us about how good the band were. I think the only downside for you guys was that because it was such a hot day a lot of people chose to chill on the veranda and listen to the music there rather than boogieing on the dance floor, although when Caroline and I left there seemed to be plenty of people still dancing! So job well done and apologies for not emailing you sooner and thanking you for helping to make our day so special. Paul Arrowsmith — Thank you ever so much for making our wedding funktastic! You entertained our guests from the first note to the last and people of all ages commented about how good the music was and said that they could not stop themselves from dancing, everyone had the best night and we had a wedding party that we will never forget! Lou and I are now racking our brains to think of a reason to hire you again! James and Lou Blackmore — Stuart & I just wanted to say thanks so much for the excellent music at our wedding. You guys went the extra mile and the evening will certainly be one we will never forget, especially as so many people have remarked how excellent the band were…. When my wife and I were planning our wedding reception we hired Absolute Funk Band as our live entertainment and were in no way disappointed. Everyone loved the music and rightly so as all of the band members looked and sounded amazing. I even arranged a special surprise for my new wife and sang a song for her with AFB playing the music… they were very encouraging and more than willing to help out. I would hire them again in a heartbeat! Kate and Stuart McIntosh —
The band were fantastic, they looked good and sounded excellent! They made the party a great success! The dance floor was never empty. They are a nice crowd and really friendly. I will recommend them to any of my friends wanting a live band. Thanks again! Tanya Harker — What can I say about Absolute Funk Band! You fulfilled and exceeded our expectations that night. All the instrumentalists were very good players, the singing was in harmony, the song choices and the subsequent requests were played to perfection. You were all so polite and obliging and certainly played longer than you were paid for. My youngest son may get married in June 2012 in Bradford and when dates are confirmed, I’ll certainly want to book you again. Dr Sam Ajulo — Joel – A big thank you to Joel and everyone in Absolute Funk for making our wedding such a memorable day. The dance floor was packed from start to finish and no requests we made was too big a task for you to accommodate. We also loved the jazz set that you did while we did our receiving line and during the wedding breakfast with many guests commented on what a lovely atmosphere it created and really added to the magic of the day. We were also really grateful that you down come down from Leeds to London especially for the jazz set.
Choice of music was excellent and there wasn’t a toe not tapping to all the old classics and new hits that were played live; pleasing both young and old guests.
Thanks again, Joel and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Absolute Funk are a fantastic band who have the ability to get everyone on the dancefloor … from teenagers to grandparents! They played at our wedding, and managed to bring a wonderful mix of relaxed soul and funky R&B to what ended up feeling more like a lively family party than a formal wedding! Several people commented on how good the band were, and they were extremely professional and reliable – a must when organising a wedding. We had a special request (my best friend sang our first dance track) and the band happily provided the backing music – Joel managed everything with the upmost professionalism. Highly recommended.
Absolute Funk Band absolutely made our wedding on 2nd Jan 2011! We had been to see them at the Tramshed and knew that they would go down a storm at our wedding and we weren’t wrong. They played such a great mix of music something for everyone and the dance floor was full all night. They played our first dance song, Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stat Together’ perfectly and I hardly left the dance floor after that.
We have had so many amazing comments about the band and how they made the night. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. A lot of our guests have been asking where they can see Absolute Funk Band again so we are keeping our ears open for any future gigs!
Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so special and definitely one to remember!
