Details of the Recommendation: "My husband and I
hired Ken and The Funktion for our wedding in July, 2011. I found them
online, listened and enjoyed, and then my husband and I went to see them
at two very different venues, and met Ken both times. We knew
immediately that they were what we wanted in a band for our wedding at
the Molly Pitcher in Red Bank, NJ. Ken met with us several times at the
venue, went over details with us both at our meetings, and over emails.
They met our expectations and surpassed them. Everyone loved the
band, the music, continue to compliment us on having such superb
entertainment. We recently got our video from the reception, and young
and old alike all were dancing, all night long. My parents, although in
their 80's, who love to dance, commented on how fabulous the band was.
Our 14 year old daughter and her friends and their 40 something Moms
also danced all night. Ken and The Funktion kept the party going, and
appealed to everyone. They were professional, fun, and sounded
spectacular. We will continue to seek them out at other venues, and
will definitely have them entertain our friends and use them for
momentous occasions in the future.
Keep up the fabulous music and thank you,
Melissa and Jeffrey Elmer"
Happy New Year to you! Thank you so much and I certainly continue to refer you to our clients. Your band was great and it was such a pleasure working with you. Hope to see you soon!

The Funktion was amazing and made our wedding reception a hit. From the very beginning, Ken was easy to work with and answered all questions that we had. The Funktion was able to play a wide variety of music and had people on their feet the entire night (which is exactly what we wanted!!) We've received countless compliments about the band from our friends and family; people who normally would never dance were up having a blast.
We can't say thank you enough for making our night one to remember always!

It was amazing how you guys picked up a tune as the DJ was fading out and sounded as good as the studio recorded version, with one difference-Real Live Energy!! Keep doing what you do!

Terrific job band!
That is the first time everyone(about all 1600 people) stayed to the end of the night. What a great fun band you have. Absolutely amazing.. People are still calling us about you. We have you for next year and 2013!! Looking forward to the next 3 years with you!! If you need a referral, please have anyone call me that is interested in the band!
Dominique P., North Bergen Mayors Ball and Fundraiser

Wanted to thank you guys for rehearsing with me in doing that song for my daughter. It was amazing you opened up your home to me Ken. I think everyone should have live music at their events. Your vocalists were smoking as well as horns and rhythm, the guitarist was top notch. I will indeed recommend you guys to anyone seeking a great band. Your band made Ali's wedding a huge success.

The band is superb. You raised the bar.
Crows Nest, 9/2/2011
The band was spectacular! The best wedding ever attended and folks in the music business that were from New Orleans stated that it was one of the best shows ever seen and they have seen thousands. Somehow you put on a fantastic show with Ailie and Shep as a part of it and I never seen Shep dance before. We cant thank you enough for an unbelievable day. I implore you to give my phone number to any one who might need a referral. Your versions of Edge Of Glory, Rollin In The Deep and Show plus pretty much everything else were worth the price of admission. Just spectacular!!

Are you guys for real? I have never heard or seen a sound that good live in such a beautiful setting. Your vocalists are better than the best and I just want to say "Whitney who"? Stevie Wonder who? When you had my daughter come up and do a song with you it lit up the place like I have never seen. You moved the audience so much both fast and slow, you managed to make members of the US Marines cry!! So much of your attention was given to us that we feel we owe you!
See you guys where ever you might be and warmest wishes to great success in the future-you deserve it.!

Thanks for meeting with us on Wednesday. It was very informative and shows that you take great interest in making sure the wedding reception is a great success. Your extra efforts are rare these days and is appreciated well beyond how I can express in words. We know even before the wedding, all will be excellent.

Lili and Jeff beat the odds with Hurricane (or was it a Tropical Storm? Who knows?!?) Danny and had a beautiful beach-side wedding last weekend. Their ceremony was on the beach by the Grand Hotel
,followed by the reception in the ballroom up on the top floor, with a stunning view of the coast. Lili and Jeff fit together so nicely, as seen in the images below. Lili is a giggler, and Jeff knows how together going! She had threatened to dig him a hole to stand in so that they would be close in height, so when we stumbled upon a pre-dug one during our photo shoot, obviously we had to take a photo! They opted to see each other before the ceremony and gave me complete control over when and where (LOVE that!) so we had plenty of time to take all the photos we needed. Lili's maid of honor was her niece, and she wrote a beautiful poem for her speech. The cool dude in the hat with the groomsmen is her nephew. Jeff's aunt performed their ceremony and there were gasps from the crowd when he broke the glass with his BAREFEET!!! I had the pleasure of working with videographer Andrew King of Stomping Bread
Productions and kept the dance floor packed and wild all night!
