The Philadelphia Funk Authority did a FANTASTIC job! They were great to work with, flexible and provided EXACTLY what we requested. As the father of the groom, when we arrived at the reception the cocktail and dinner music was classy and elegant. Following dinner, when the dancing started, the dance floor was full from the first dance song to the last dance song. They are worth every penny! As one of our guests posted, "Just left the party of the century! Great food, great friends and wow, The Philadelphia Funk Authority, what a band!”
