About Funktastic Productions

Funktastic Productions specializes in weddings, corporate events, and festivals across Chicago, Chicagoland, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the midwest. With their roots in the funky Motown era, their extensive song list incorporates flares of Hip-hop, Rock, Jazz, Pop, and Soul music that make them the perfect fit for any event. With seamless song transitions, the music never stops & guests will never leave the dance floor.

A celebration of Chicago's finest black voices! Collectively Funktastic, all musicians are award-winning & featured on American Idol, The Voice, and more. Musical authenticity comes from what's within the music. By tributing legendary artists with inclusion and diversity, we help preserve the African-American art form of Motown, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Hiphop, Pop, and more.

Song requests are our jam. Learning songs outside of our song list is encouraged, and it's how we've built such a big repertoire of music.

Our packages can include: 6-12 piece band (horns al la carte), Jazz Trio during cocktail hour, Rotating Quartets during dinner, Strings for ceremony, Post-Cocktail dance set, and more! Sound Lighting & MC included in ALL packages.

    Funktastic #1

    Mike and the Funktastic team are 1st class in every way. Although our wedding was cancelled due to Covid, Mike is always easy to reach, flexible, and very understanding. No hassles, No fuss, No problems. We are so bummed that our wedding was cancelled because Funktastic was going to be one of the highlights of the night. We've seen them play at The Bassment and they had the entire venue rocking all night.

    Mike is extremely caring, friendly, and passionate about his work. And if you've never seen him hit the bass, you're missing out. They have an incredible band and are extremely talented. I highly recommend going to see them jam.

    In the future, when we need a band for an event, or even a night out to see a band rock, we'll go see these guys any day of the week.

    Hi Keith,

    Thank you for such a thoughtful review! I'm glad to hear that you think we have an incredible band, and that we were flexible and easy to work with. It was so much fun meeting you after our show. While I'm sorry your wedding was cancelled due to COVID19, we are SO looking forward to seeing you soon!! You'll always be our VIP anywhere we play :)

    Exceeded Expectations

    Funktastic blew us and our guests away with their talent, enthusiasm, and engagement! Mike and Alysha were very responsive throughout the entire process, which made it easy for us to finalize our set list and get their guidance when needed. The band was eager to learn any song we through their way, including a mashup we asked for our first dance song, and they NAILED IT! They read the crowd to keep everyone dancing. They were simply amazing and we couldn't be happier or more grateful that they were a part of our wedding.
