Here are some testimonials from our happy clients:

Angee and I heard the band at a function we attended early in 2011, and we knew right away that they were the perfect group for our wedding reception. We got married on 11-11-11 (Friday), but held the reception the next night (Saturday) in our KC Copters Helicopter hangar at JOCO Executive Airport. With a few hundred in attendance, we got the obligatory first dances out of the way, and then it was time for the band! We had them lead with the song “I’ve Got A Feeling”, and I have to tell you… I was on the dance floor for quite awhile before it dawned on me that it wasn’t a DJ playing the Black Eyed Peas… it was FUNK SYNDICATE! They sounded THAT GOOD! Not only are they incredibly talented, but they conducted themselves with unparalleled professionalism and courtesy. Through the entire booking and planning process they were totally fun to work with…they just flat out get it. And… they made the rest of the night spectacular as well. In closing, we’ve all been to the receptions where everyone cringes when the music begins. If you’d rather see smiles and nodding when the band strikes up, and a full dance floor too, I highly recommend you book Funk Syndicate for your reception. From both of us, thanks guys for making our night truly one we’ll never forget. You couldn’t have been more perfect.

When planning our wedding my husband and I knew we wanted a band, but not just any band, we wanted a funk and dance band. We wanted Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, the Commadores, and music of this nature. We went and witnessed five different bands in the KC area that covered this type of music. Funk Syndicate out-shined all of them! They were the best by far. Two years later, friends are still talking about how great the band was at our wedding. My uncle who I’ve never seen dance before in my life couldn’t resist getting up and “cutting a rug” at our wedding. Great memories, and we owe it all to Funk Syndicate. LOVE THEM!

“Funk Syndicate is KC’s # 1 Show Band! The band is professional and courteous in all aspects of the show. Every time we have them at the club, the dance floor is packed. I would highly recommend them for all weddings or social gatherings.”

– Matthew David Catering Director at Indian Hills Country Club


“I want to thank each and everyone for the great job you all did playing at our daughters wedding. I was so pleased with the professionalism your band had. The music was great! You hit every era. You had songs to take care of Grandmas to teens and everyone in between. You guys handled setup and breakdown quickly. I want to thank Frank for hanging around after setup to let the caterer’s in. (we only had one key) I would recommend this Band to play any wedding, corporate event or even your Aunt Sally’s 70th Birthday Bash. We had a DJ also (which wasn’t needed Funk Syndicate played everything we needed) The Band worked great with the DJ and his assistant. Again I can’t tell you all how pleased we were.”

– Sherrie & Buddy Elms


“Hiring Funk Syndicate was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. They were professional and courteous, plus the music they played was just awesome!

They made the evening easy for us to enjoy ourselves, visit with family & friends and dance plus they helped us plan the music sets. All we had to do was enjoy the evening. I recommend Funk Syndicate for any occasion.”

– Mrs. Gretchen Meyers – Washington D.C. (originally from KC)
