Testimonials

"I hired the band as i had used them before at a charity night, it is always a risk but I have to say they were absolutely fantastic again and a number of my guests asked where I found them as they were so good, each of the musicians are very talented and the singer was just great, We asked them if they could do Bandioke ie let people come up and sing with them, which they did and it was a complete success. I would highly recommend these for your event if you are looking for a great band. They were so good that I have already booked them again for my next event."

"We originally booked FunXion 5 back in 2019 for our original wedding which was meant to take place in May 2020. COVID delayed the wedding and we had to reschedule several times. Jared and the band couldn’t have been more accommodating. The communication from them every step of the way was clear, prompt and super helpful. They assisted us with a PA speaker for our speeches, arriving early to help set it up. Performance wise they were fantastic. The song choices were excellent, there was a real range in eras and kept our guests dancing all night. We requested Carla as the singer and she was superb, as were all the band members."

Susan Nash - Wedding, 2022

"We have given 3 large parties with live music in the last few years, most recently this July for a 70th Birthday party. All the performers did a good job but the standouts have been FunXion 5. Picking suitable music was no problem - we were offered an extensive repertoire, from hits of the 60's till today, and Jared Martin from the band worked with us to create a playlist that was perfect for the occasion. The band did an acoustic set outdoors for background during pre-dinner drinks and canapes, and also organised a playlist of pre-recorded music to be broadcast through their sound system between sets. There therefore was no need for a DJ. And delivery on the night couldn't have been better - you could see the band really care about their work. The ultimate accolade is simple though - FunXion 5 kept our dance floor packed throughout their two sets. The energy levels were really high right up until the last number, and even habitual wall flowers joined the action!"
Robert Green - Birthday Party, 2022

"We booked these guys for a family party recently and couldn't be happier. When we were arranging logistics in the run-up to the event they were super helpful and responsive and on the night they absolutely smashed it. Everyone was talking about how great they were! Absolute pros!"

Ben Green - Birthday Party, 2022

"The perfect band for our wedding! I'm so glad we chose FunXion 5 for our wedding; they were great in the lead up sorting out our first dance and the playlist, and they were so much fun on the night. They sounded amazing, got all the guests onto the dancefloor and helped create an awesome atmosphere for the evening. I would highly recommend them."

Jack Lawson - Wedding, 2022

"I had Funxion5 perform for my husband's birthday party. This band of 6 was amazing. The event was in June of this year and we had 40 guests. I am still hearing comments about how good this band was. We have a birthday party every year for my husband and we will have this band perform for us from now on! Our guests were on the dance floor all night. I worked with Jared in advance and the band played most of the songs I requested plus more. During the intermissions they played my playlists so we had constant music from 7pm through 11pm. They were a very friendly and professional group and I would highly recommend them for any type of occasion. If you are considering this band I would be happy to answer any of your questions.

Ali and Yvette - Wedding, 2022

"Funxion5 performed at our wedding and were brilliant! The song choice and energy of the band got everyone (friends, parents, grandparents!) on the dance floor. It's clear they are top quality musicians. Many of our guests commented on how great they were. They were also really flexible with our timings and choice of song for our first dance. Would highly recommend for any wedding or party."

Tom Byers - Wedding, 2022

"FunXion 5 performed at our Wedding celebrations last weekend. They are a top class band, who had all our guests on the dance floor for the whole evening. The variety of musical genres was perfect for all our guests - something for everyone.
Despite having to change our date a number of times due to COVID restrictions, the band couldn't have been more understanding and accommodating.
We highly recommend FunXion 5."

Carole Lewis - Wedding, 2021

"I hired the band after doing some research on google, it is always a risk but I have to say they were absolutely fantastic and a number of my guests asked where I found them as they were so good, each of the musicians are very talented and the singer was just great, I would highly recommend these for your event if you are looking for a great band. I will be booking them again for sure."

Roy Cooper - Masonic Ladies Night, 2021

"We had high expectations of FunXion 5, as other reviews and demo's were so positive. They were truly amazing, with quality and skills that blew us, and all our guests away. We had many compliments on the band afterwards. Cant recommend FunXion 5 highly enough. Thanks FunXion 5!"

Andrew Watson - Wedding, 2021

"Funxion 5 performed at my wedding earlier this year. Not only were my wife and I impressed by their performance, but so were our guests. Every element of their performance was superb! The sax, guitar and drum solos, and, of course, the vocals as well. They were excellent value for money, and I would gladly recommend them to others for their weddings."

James Barry - Wedding, 2021

"FunXion 5 are the best band we’ve even booked for one of our ladies night. The quality and energy of their set got everyone dancing. Would happily book them again. If you like live music book them!"

Gemma Fox - Wedding, 2019

"FunXion 5 were a fantastic band, really professional, great to work with leading up to the event and a very talented group of people. Added great atmosphere to our event, all of the members of the band were lively, energetic and interacted with the audience during their performance. Would highly recommend for any type of event and would book them again in the future! Thank you for helping us put on such a successful event, we had great feedback from all of the attendees."

Emma - Corporate Summer Party, 2019

"We can't recommend FunXion 5 more highly! They did a fantastic job performing at our wedding and kept the dance floor full all night! We looked at a lot of bands without finding the right mix of style and instruments we wanted - so we were thrilled when we came across FunXion 5 who fit the bill perfectly. They were happy to learn and play an amazing rendition of our first dance (Waterloo Sunset). We particularly appreciated how friendly and helpful Jared was during the planning. A big thank you!"

Ruth and Daniel - Wedding, 2019

“FunXion 5 were absolutely fantastic. We hired them for our work Xmas party. They played a great selection of songs and had everyone up dancing all night! Thoroughly recommend! I’ll definitely be booking them again in the future.”

Emma – Work Xmas Party, 2018

“FunXion 5 played at my 40th birthday party last year and they were brilliant! I was really looking for a band that played a wide variety of music to cater to all my friends whose musical tastes differ greatly. They played everything from pop, rock, funk soul, blues and even threw in a little jazz for good measure! Everyone loved it and I got lots of comments from the guests saying how much they all enjoyed it. Being a professional singer myself, they even allowed me up on stage to sing Valerie due to multiple requests from my friends! Highly recommend!”

Nikki – 40th Birthday Party, 2018

"Funxion 5 are the most incredible band any wedding or party could hope for. All of our guests were blown away by their talent, which they all still talk about months on from our wedding. They managed to play throughout our hour-long canapés and for four further hours after at our reception party, as well as the piano for our wedding ceremony.

The team are the most lovely people to work with, and very accommodating by learning specially selected songs - even though we ended up changing our first dance song last minute! They ranged from pop, jazz, Motown to rock - and even ended up freestyling an amazing funky beat when our MC called the guests up to the front for a photograph.

Individually, the band members are all unbelievably talented. I fully recommend getting the full works, including the saxophonist whose singing and playing are unparalleled. Simon even played the bass until his fingers were bleeding! Vocals were breathtaking - and could easily range from Etta James to Jamiroquai.

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Funxion 5 play at a few events, and their ability to tailor their music to individual events is wonderful - from soft background music to getting everybody dancing the whole night.

I cannot praise the band highly enough - we’re so thankful to them for making our special day even more unforgettable as well as for our 200 guests."

Aaron and Elisha Thakorlal - Wedding, 2018

"Top Band, Top Music, Top Night…..Definitely would book again."

Georgina - Birthday Party, 2018

"I would just like to take this opportunity to say that FunXion 5 were absolutely fantastic and really helped make our night memorable! They got everybody dancing and managed to cater to a wide variety of ages and music tastes. Many of our guests approached us and commentated at how good the music was and how much they enjoyed it. You just cannot beat a quality live band! The DJing afterwards was also great, with lots of disco classics and modern hits to keep our guests on their feet. A great way to end the night! Thanks again."

Bill - Anniversary Party, 2018

"FunXion 5 performed at our party and they were outstanding. The band had an amazing mix of songs and our guests thoroughly enjoyed dancing to the music. They kept the party going all night long. Thank you very much for making a great night just perfect !!!"
