    best decision ever!

    Second to our venue, choosing FE to play at our wedding was the best
    decision we made throughout the whole planning process. They really brought
    our wedding to the next level and exceeded all of our expectations.

    After selecting our venue (The Otesaga in Cooperstown, NY), the next thing
    we got to work on was the wedding band. We knew we wanted live music and
    were pretty stressed about the decision making process. We also had less
    than a year until our event date, and in our initial outreach were finding
    a lot of options to be booked. I stumbled upon FE on Wedding Wire, and
    reached out with my fingers crossed. Rocco got back to me and they were
    available... and we gave a deposit without having heard them live... it
    felt risky.. but the payoff was amazing!

    Rocco was by far one of my favorite wedding vendors to work with. He is SO
    nice, SO fast to respond, SO helpful and easy to work with.. he is
    everything! He offered me a great deal on lighting, so FE took care of that
    too, and lit our reception space up beautifully.. and once the party
    started, the lights were awesome.. it was like a fancy rave!

    The dance floor was packed the entire night. All the musicians in the band
    are amazingly talented. At one point they did a horn battle in the middle
    of the dance floor and we were all mesmerized! They even let me sing on the
    mic.. sorry to all my guests.. but I loved it. Rocco was also great as the
    emcee.. he had a very energetic way about him.

    My dinner ended up running pretty long but Rocco worked with me and the
    venue to move things along and stay on track. He definitely knows how to
    run an event.

    I am trying to think of another reason to have a party so I can hire FE
    again. Use them, seriously, you won't regret it!

    Simply the best

    It was a no-brainer that we wanted to have Funk Evolution at our wedding. From the minute we corresponded with Rocco, it was even more clear that this was a must. Rocco was so professional, yet easy going and relaxed...it felt like we had another group of friends who happen to be fab musicians coming to our wedding. Everyone in the band is so talented and really knows how to get the crowd going and keep them going all night. Our friends and family RAVED about Funk Evolution (one even asked if they'd be willing to travel out to Wisconsin). I would work with them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to any and everyone looking for a band for their wedding or special event.

    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!!!!!

    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!
