Just to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for your excellent performance on Saturday. You all certainly contributed to the 'wow' factor of the evening and most important had the guests up on the floor and dancing from the start. Many thanks and wishing you every future success.

Funkster were great, a very professional act. I was a bit unfair to them on the night as we didn't have enough time allocated for them due to the number of acts on the night. But what time they had they absolutely smashed it!!! Thank you Funkster.

Just wanted to say what a fantastic job the band did on the night - they blew everyone away! Everyone was asking how we got them and how we found the band as they were so so good! Both Jamie and I were highly impressed with the seamless-ness of the day and how everything went so so well. There's already talk of having a big party for our first year anniversary, so I will be in touch for you if we decide to do this and ask Funkster to come back and play for our friends and family! Thank you so much again for your help in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. Best wishes, Rachelle
