WOW! We could not recommend Funk With Us highly enough. They played for our wedding (and Lilac did an acoustic set in the day). They were all absolutely INCREDIBLE. The dancefloor was full all night and we had endless comments about how amazing they were. Lilac was so helpful in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. Their set list and repertoire is sooo extensive - the hardest bit was narrowing it down to our favourites! Absolutely made the day and were worth every single penny! The 5* reviews speak for themselves! Thank you guys so much.

I love dancing badly to a good wedding band, and I was overjoyed that the band at my own wedding was easily the best wedding band I've ever experienced. Seamless transitions, flawless funky execution, huge vocals from Lilac, and her and the saxophonist joining us on the dance floor made for a truly memorable and superlatively fun experience for everyone. The floor was packed all night! Couldn't recommend them enough. Thank you so much Lilac and co!

Best band we could have asked for! They were so organised and thorough in the run-up to the wedding, making sure we were happy with the sets. The day it’s self was amazing and I could not recommend them highly enough! Everyone commented that they were the best band they had heard, the dancefloor was filled with every age group all night! Thank you again and we will be looking for any excuse to have you back!

Funk with us are absolutely phenomenal. Obviously I am biased but they are honestly the best wedding band I’ve ever seen perform. All of our guests have since commented that our band were fantastic and I couldn’t recommend more highly! Lilac and Remko are so easy to talk to and couldn’t have been more accommodating. Such a talented bunch!

Sound With Us were extraordinary from start to finish. Both Lilac and her partner Remko were very helpful in the lead up to our Wedding and made a huge effort to understand what we wanted from the evening and how to tailor the sets towards our own music tastes. On the night itself, we couldn't have been more impressed. Lilac set the tone for the entire night and really made our Wedding everything we'd dreamed it to be. If you want to have an evening of amazing music led by a highly talented and exciting performer to wow you and your guests, then you really must choose the Sound With Us! I cannot wait to use them again in the future for big life events.
