the show and lived up to every expectation, managing to keep the

Thank you so much for giving us such an incredible performance, and

“What can I say about Funkty Dumpty; you were absolutely amazing
and well literally the dance floor was full from the moment you played
the first note until the last. So many of the guests have remarked at
what a great band you were and how you really got the party going. It
was an amazing day and having you play at our wedding really was
the top ingredient of a brilliant Wedding, we only wish we had another
event coming up where we could have the band play again for us!”

dance floor was packed from start to finish! So many of our guests

the evening and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to any of my

“Firstly we want to say a huge thank you to all the band members for
contributing to what was the best night of our lives. We had lots of
comments from guests saying that you were the best wedding band
they had heard and of course we agree!
It was clear that a lot of thought goes into creating a set list that works
really well together. The dance floor was permanently full!!
Having the band also meant that we didn’t need to worry about
keeping out guests entertained- it was all taken care of and the setting
up went on smoothly without us even noticing!
We will definitely be recommending session one to our friends.”

“Funkty Dumpty were amazing at our wedding! The band were so
accommodating, learning our first dance and being really flexible with
timings on the night. The set list was a brilliant mix for everyone and
really got people up dancing the night away. I would 100%
recommend them to anyone looking for a band for any occasion. We
had so many complements afterwards on how great they were and
how they really made our evening party a great do!
We really did have a great time and you guys did so much to help
that. Thanks again.”
