We first heard Funktastic play at The Bassment two years ago. They had the crowd dancing the entire night with an energy that was contagious. When we got engaged, the first thing we did was book Funktastic for our wedding! They were incredible to work with - from the planning stage to traveling to Peoria for the big event. All of our guests couldn't stop talking about the talented band from Chicago that kept people on their feet all night....and they are still talking about it two months later! The wide variety of music got people of all ages on their feet dancing and Laura's beautiful voice was captivating! The sax, drums, and bass were no exception! Mike is not only is an amazing band leader, but also a phenomenal MC. We were SO lucky and happy to have found the best band to play at the most special celebration of our life. Thank you for making our reception one that will go down in history!Sent on 02/20/2018

Mike and Funktastic were awesome to work with for our wedding party. Communication was professional and responsive, and it was a breeze to work out details. They also have an excellent catalog of songs, and are accommodating to requests. Plus, the performance was top-notch.Sent on 08/12/2019

These guys were within our budget?
You are getting way more than you pay for with this band. Mike is a real pro, he’s responsive, flexible to special requests and changes (he actually welcomes song requests because it grows the band’s catalog), and brings a really fun and youthful energy to your wedding celebration. I can’t believe how affordable Funktastic was.Sent on 07/22/2019
But the best part about booking this band is that while they are more than capable of playing the top 40, their real bread and butter is funk and soul. James Brown, Parliament, Stevie Wonder, Rick James, we even made some special requests for a few Prince tracks. They kept people on the floor all night long without a single top 40 song, at our request. If you like horns, and you should, you need these guys.
I received multiple questions from wedding guests asking where I dug these guys up. They had never been to such an awesome reception and it was all because of Mike and Funktastic.
Sometimes in wedding planning you wonder if you’re being taken for a ride by your vendors. Have no fear with this band. If anything, you’ll wonder if you’re taking advantage of them. Alright, gotta go check Funktastic’s gig schedule so I can see them again.
