  • Max and Alice, wedding - Burford Bridge Hotel, Dorking – OCT 2015

    A huge thank you to Citizen Funk for helping make our day so special! Fantastic from our first dance to the last, amazing energy and a great sound and a pleasure to deal with before, during and after the big day. Good luck in this year's Wedding Industry Awards, you've got our vote!

  • Joy & Andrew Baker – 40th Birthday party - Winchester – SEPT 2015

    WOW, what a performance you and your band gave us on my birthday night! You were all so friendly, professional and totally incredible musicians/singers - so many guests said they haven’t been to a party or wedding when so many people were straight onto the dance floor! We were totally thrilled with every song you performed and we feel so lucky to have been able to book you! Thank you for making so much effort. Please pass on our sincere thanks to everyone – top highlights were Otty coming onto the dance floor to perform ’Treasure’ and the saxophonist which thrilled everyone and is a moment I will never forget ! One of the best nights of my life thanks to you and the band! All the best to you and your band, and also a personal thanks to you for managing the process since we began speaking earlier in the year!

  • Clive and Pierina, 50th Birthday Party - Sevenoaks – SEPT 2015

    Just a quick note to thank you all for a great night in Sevenoaks on Saturday. Everyone loved the band, the choice of music and the whole experience. Folk were up and dancing immediately and didn’t stop until you did! So pleased we found you. Pierina loved it and we have not stopped receiving compliments since folk woke up on Sunday morning. I hope you receive many more bookings as a result. We won’t hesitate to recommend you!

  • Matthew and Abigail, wedding - Kent – AUG 2015

    We just want to say a massive thank you to the band – you simply exceeded our expectations and made a huge contribution to the best day of our lives. I don’t think there was one person who didn’t get up on the dance floor and we received so many comments about how fantastic you were. From booking to the very end you were so approachable and friendly and we can’t recommend you enough. Thank you so much – we will remember the music for many years to come.

  • Roger Miller, Daughter’s wedding - Bovey Castle, Devon – JUNE 2015

    Thank you for a fantastic night on Saturday. The best thing I can say to express how much of a success it was is that we all know at a normal wedding the girls dance and the men stay by the bar. We had 20 plus 25-35yrs old rugby players who stayed on the dance floor all night! and we found amongst them a new rapper Smithy! Move over Tina Turner we know who is now Simply The Best!

  • Hannah and Ben, wedding - Rivervale Barn, Hampshire – MAY 2015

    HUGE thanks to Citizen Funk who played at our wedding last Friday at Rivervale barn... Was so looking forward to seeing these guys in action, having stumbled across them on the Internet.... They did not disappoint. Emotional watching back videos of our guests (in particular our 2 year old daughter dancing to the band) and want to party with them all over again! From our first dance, till the very end you guys were awesome and we thank you so very much for adding the perfect finishing touch and ending to our magical day! Highly recommend including the sax player in the band - worth every penny!!

  • Lesley Venuto, (mother of the groom), Jewish wedding - Blake Hall, Essex – MAY 2015

    Once again, Citizen Funk have managed to give us the best evening's entertainment we could ever wish for. Thank you so much for making my son, Nino and his new wife, Louise’s wedding a day to remember. I can’t even begin to tell you how many messages we have received from our guests saying how much they enjoyed dancing to your band. Good luck guys for the future and wish you much success. Your No1 fan.

  • Ruth and Avi, Jewish wedding - The Bloomsbury Ballroom, London – APRIL 2015

    Citizen Funk were simply amazing and the perfect band for our central London Jewish wedding. So many guests kept telling me how the band was killing it and how impressive it was that they could get 100 people on the dance floor to Hora to Simon Tov and Mazel Tov one minute and then have them rocking out to funk and disco tunes the next. The dance floor was packed the entire night and at 1AM a whole bunch of us jumped up on stage and did some impromptu performance and it was just incredible. You were a pleasure to work with from the first interactions all the way to the night of the party.

  • Dent Devils, Corporate Event - Hanbury Manor - MAR 2015

    Many thanks to the Band! We had a fabulous evening on Saturday at Hanbury Manor! Would 100% recommend to anyone thinking of booking a band for an event. They are brilliant! From start to finish they were a pleasure to deal with, no dramas whatsoever and a great time had by all.
