Glen Ford on the Delaware: Philadelphia, PA – June 2017
My husband and I could not be happier with the Philadelphia Funk Authority. We had heard several great things about the band even before we decided to book. Once, we were engaged, there was no hesitation at who we wanted for our wedding entertainment. My guests said nothing but amazing things and were on the dance floor the whole night! If you're looking to have people dancing all night, I would highly recommend the Philadelphia Funk Authority for any event.

Independence Visitor Center: Philadelphia, PA – June 2017
Philadelphia Funk Authority absolutely crushed it at our wedding and my husband and I could not be happier with our decision to hire them!
From the time our wedding reception started, our guests were buzzing about the music - the band set just the right tone for the cocktail hour with a jazz duo, did an amazing job with our first dance, provided beautiful accompaniment for our father/daughter and mother/son dances, and had the dance floor packed from the first song through last call. In addition, Gary and the band leader were wonderful in working with my dad, who sang a song for us to help start the celebration and went above and beyond in helping us to compile the perfect set list of songs.
If you are looking for a professional, experienced, and high-quality band for your special day, you needn't look further than Philadelphia Funk Authority.

Union Trust: Philadelphia, PA – April 2017
The Philadelphia Funk Authority made our wedding incredible! We wanted a party band that would keep everyone on the dance floor from the second they walked in the room and that's what they brought! Their website lists their repertoire and available songs to choose from...it is endless! With every style of music. We went with pop, rock and funk and we had every generation on the dance floor for every song! I was able to select songs off their website as well as 2 songs they were willing to learn and play. Without being asked, they even specifically announced when they were about to play our favorite song so my husband and I could find each other and truly enjoy that moment together on the dance floor. Gary is exceptional to work with prior to the event, very organized and kind. The band acts as the MC during the reception and organized the night seamlessly. For example, their announcement of the wedding party and us as a newly married couple was perfect. Transitions from the first dance and parent dances to getting everyone on the dance floor with an upbeat party song took seconds! The whole night was a huge success and a lot of that is due to Philly Funk Authority! Our guests are still raving about the band! I've now been to 3 of their weddings...Amazing every time. HIRE them!

Berkeley Hotel, Asbury Park, NJ – January 2019
Couldn't recommend them more!
When we saw The Philly Funk Authority perform at our cousins' NYE wedding, we knew we had to have them and we were NOT disappointed! Gary was so easy to work with through the planning process and worked out every detail on our behalf. The band was as professional as they come. They worked the room and rocked the house. They learned three songs for us that weren't on their repertoire. We would recommend Philly Funk to anyone and everyone!

William Penn Inn – November 2018
Best Decision of Our Wedding. We can't say enough about what a wonderful decision it was to make the Philadelphia Funk Authority part of our wedding. From the planning stages through the day of the event, they were to make our experience has smooth and enjoyable as possible.
The talent of all of the musicians truly made our wedding a night to remember. Almost two months later our friends and family still talk about 'that band', and how much fun that had dancing and singing to the music. The group played to all ages at our reception, with songs our parents grew up with through the chart toppers of today.
No amount of words can express how pleased we are with our experience - we highly recommend them for any couple looking for live entertainment at their wedding.

Sea Shell Resort, Beach Haven, NJ – October 2018
Best Wedding Band! We were SO happy with our decision to hire Philly Funk and we 100% highly recommend them to anyone looking for a high energy, talented wedding band. Guests came up to us all night telling us how incredible they were! They are also incredibly easy to work with.

Bear Creek, Macungie, PA – September 2018
When "Shout" came on, it was the craziest I have ever seen wedding dance floor in all my years.. Gary was also super easy to work with. When you hire professionals that know what they are doing, it makes the lives of the bride and groom that much easier.

Philadelphia Funk Authority is amazing!! They made the wedding top notch and set the bar extremely high for future family weddings!!
I cannot say enough great things about PFA!! They say the music can make or break a wedding, and the band made my daughter’s wedding a landmark event that our family and friends are still gushing over! The dance floor was literally bouncing all night! The playlist was amazing and the musicians are all top notch. Fun and exciting from beginning to end....Thank you Philadelphia Funk Authority, from the bottom of our hearts!

Glen Foerd on the Delaware, Philadelphia, July 2018
Everyone, from the 3 year olds to the 70 year olds, were on the dance floor all the time. The diversity of music and the quality of delivery whether it was guitars, drums, horns and the singing (OMG) was something else. We had many people ask where did we find these guys!!?? as well as many who said “this is not just the best wedding but the best party I ever attended!“. You guys rock and made our day!

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!”
