I can't thank you enough for everything--the band was INCREDIBLE! What a party! Everyone couldn't stop talking about how amazing they were. They made our reception unbelievably fun, my feet still hurt from too much dancing!  We were so thrilled that my sister, who just got engaged, wants the band for her wedding next year!! They're looking at September of 2016--they don't have an exact date or venue yet but you will be the first to know.  Enjoy the rest of your summer, you'll be hearing from us soon!! And THANKS AGAIN!! 


Philly Funk did an outstanding performance for Alison & Seans wedding. They made the wedding very special with lots of memories for all who attended. One guest said: "You know the band is great when everyone is still here dancing in the 4th set". Thanks for all you do. Much appreciated, Cheers!


The Philly Funk was AMAZING at our wedding. First, they did such a great job with our wedding song, they learned the entire thing and had fun with it – we loved it, it is something that we will definitely always remember!! We also got so many compliments from our guests about how awesome the band was!!! People were coming up to both of us all night to tell us how fantastic the Philly Funk is and how much fun they were having because the band was so good – I don’t think there was a single person that was not up dancing, and most people danced to every song. It was exactly how we hoped it would be! Jeremy and I cannot thank you, George and the rest of the band enough for doing such a great job and making the process so easy. You were so great to work with and everyone who attended the reception agreed the Philly Funk made our wedding an awesome party!!!


We just got married at The Farm at Eagles Ridge in Lancaster PA and all we can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH! It was honestly the best wedding we've ever been to, not just because it was ours, but because The Philly Funk Authority was a part of it. The level of energy was beyond our expectations. Even after two weeks, we are still hearing about how amazing they were and getting emails/texts for their information. ALL guests (our little cousins, our friends, our parents, our parents friends) were totally blown away by the performance. We kept hearing "every song they played was awesome", "they killed it", "I couldn't stop dancing". This is exactly what we had in mind for our wedding and The Philly Funk Authority really pulled through for us. We were told we really set the bar high and that any other friends of ours getting married soon will have to think long and hard about how to top it (hell yes). We both acknowledge that the band was a HUGE part of this. We absolutely recommend them to anyone who's looking for live music for their wedding Not only was the performance amazing, but they were true professionals. They helped orchestrate the evening smoothly which helped alleviate any concerns we had since we didn't have a wedding planner. Again, thank you so much for contributing to the best day of our lives. It will never be forgotten. Anyone who is thinking of booking live music, you need to check these guys out

As a musician, finding the perfect band for our wedding was one of my top priorities. Philadelphia Funk Authority was amazing. The vocalists were outstanding, the band was tight, and their set list was perfect. Most importantly, they kept our guests dancing all night! On top of that, they were easy to work with and flexible. People are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding.

I feel that the two most important features of a wedding reception are the music and the food, in that order. If the music connects with the guests, then they have a great time, and that's what they remember. We hired PFA for our reception, and it was the best decision to do so. We had the advantage of knowing ahead of time that we loved the band's energy, repertoire, and quality of performance. I'm not sure how the price compares to other choices, but I firmly believe PFA was a bargain for the amount of enjoyment they dished out to us and our guests. They were a pleasure to work with, very flexible in programming (including the use of "guest musicians"), and they ultimately exceeded all our expectations. We had about 150 guests, many of whom are not considered big dancers, and they ALL WERE OUT ON THE DANCE FLOOR constantly throughout the evening. During the evening, and for weeks afterwards, we heard lots of positive comments about the food, the location, the decor, etc., but the overwhelming enthusiasm was about how much fun it was to dance and party with Philadelphia Funk Authority. We had lots of people say it was the most fun they ever had at a wedding, including us! It's all about the BAND!
