    Amazing wedding band!

    We hired Funk Evolution for our wedding this past September and they exceeded our expectations. Prior to the wedding any question I had was answered promptly which was great during the planning process. From the ceremony to cocktail hour through the reception the music was excellent and the dance party was so fun! 10/10 would recommend.

    Rocco and his team will not dissappoint!

    Funk Evolution was the best decision we made for our Wedding!
    Rocco was attentive and responsive via email. The band brought the funk and dance tunes. And those horns!! They were everything you would need to get the party started! Trust me and book them, you will not be disappointed!

  • Bliss Events Wedding Planners

    Funk Evolution Entertainment is an incredible, energetic and outstanding performing group that is nothing short of top notch! Bliss Events had the opportunity of working with Christian of Funk Evolution who was always professional and accommodating. The band was able to ignite the crowd from the very beginning of the event and kept them in fire all night long! Each member of the band is truly talented and full of passion! I look forward to working with Funk Evolution Entertainment again!!!!!

  • Wendy Lawrence Weddings & Events, LLC Wedding Planners

    I've worked with Funk Evolution and Rocco for over 15 years and several special events and weddings. Not only are they one of the most fun bands in the area to work with but they are also consummate professionals. Rocco is a great MC and really knows how to "work" the room and keep everyone dancing and having fun. I would highly recommend Funk Evolution for your next special event or wedding!

  • All Occasions Photography Wedding Photographers

    I can not say enough about Funk Evolution. I even find myself going out to their other gigs at times! They are professional, and the music is fantastic and fun. Such talent among these musicians. Your wedding would be complete if you hired them!
