We had the pleasure of booking Funk The Party band for my brother's 40th and I could not have asked for a better band. They really were professional from start to finish. Andy was very helpful and made me feel confident in their work and boy did they deliver an epic performance with Layla's amazing voice. Thank you guys! Highly recommended.
