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.Sent on 06/23/2020
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.

A Breeze to Work With!
Where to begin! First and foremost, Mike and Funktastic Productions has been so professional and FUN to work with! From our first phone conference, to scheduling our setlist, to rescheduling due to Covid 19, I have always felt like a priority. And yes, we did have to reschedule our wedding and they were literally the easiest vendor to move. Just a couple emails confirming the new date/availability, and done! There was no fee, no hassle, and Mike even sent us a little "sorry you had to reschedule" gift in the mail! It was such a sweet surprise :) They are the vendor we have been most excited about working with for our wedding (a fun live band is at the top of our list for our wedding) and I would highly recommend them to any friends or relatives looking for a fun, highly professional band for any occasion!Sent on 06/10/2020

The absolute best!
Can't say enough about Mike Zabrin and his Funktastic Band! Mikes flexibility and willingness to work with us during the planning process of our wedding made the planning a piece of cake. Mike will work directly with you and your fiance on planning the perfect set-list for your reception or party. Their music showmanship, and how the gel as a band is incredible. Have a song you want them to play but its not on their 300+ song list to choose from? Not a problem! They let you pick a handful of songs (and I mean, literally any song you can think of) and they will learn it and knock it out of the park! Here we are almost a month later I'm still getting texts and calls from people on how AWESOME the band was! I CAN NOT recommend Mike Zabrins Funktastic enough!Sent on 09/02/2020
