My Fiance and I have been huge Funk Evolution Fans for 8 years. When we became engaged in 2017 and began planning our wedding, Funk Evolution was the very first vendor we hired and we began building our wedding around their availability. As 2020 approached, Funk Evolution's Leader Rocco contacted us to begin fine tuning our plan for our wedding reception. He spent so much time answering our emails, text messages and FB Messages. Rocco helped us build an itinerary for our wedding reception, worked to create a custom mash-up of our first dance and even drove to Syracuse to meet with us in person.Sent on 05/26/2020
Unfortunately, we were blind-sided when Covid-19 arose in February, just 3 months before our wedding day. We were devastated as our Bachelor(ette) parties were cancelled. Soon after, we received word from our wedding venue that they would be unable to host our Wedding as planned due to the virus.
Rocco worked with us continuously answering our calls and emails thru the scary process of rebuilding our wedding from scratch. Unfortunately, the only date our venue had available to reschedule to was unavailable on a couple of our vendor's calendar's, including Funk Evolution's. We were very disappointed to learn that Funk Evolution couldn't be part of our day especially as they were the first wedding vendor we chose.
This review is intended to highlight Rocco's response to our cancelled wedding. A couple of our vendors charged us the 25-50% cancel fees in our contract even though this situation was completely out of our control (we are out over $5,000). Funk Evolution not only waived ANY cancel fee's but Rocco also helped us to secure our new band and negotiated with them to honor Funk Evolution's reduced rate. We are so grateful that Rocco and Funk Evolution were so accommodating and that they went so far and above what was even necessary to ensure that our bad situation ended with losing our favorite band. Rocco's attentive, kind and understanding response to our dilemma took the edge off from the fact that we have to push our wedding out a year and we will never forget the level of service we received from Funk Evolution. Best yet, we shared our experience with several friends and THREE have hired Funk Evolution for their upcoming weddings so we can still party with Funk Evolution at their weddings. #Grateful

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.Sent on 12/29/2019

Rocco and his team will not dissappoint!
Funk Evolution was the best decision we made for our Wedding!Sent on 05/26/2020
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!
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!
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!
