Why Have an All Star Live Band?

The debate whether you should have a live band or DJ at your wedding is one we are very familiar with at Funktastic (and is also why we offer both!) Of course, we're biased, but we genuinely believe having a live band at your wedding makes it an unforgettable experience. Here's why you should work with us:

You know who you're getting.

We are as local as they come. When you book Funktastic, you're booking Chicago natives who have worked the circuit of every major music venue in the city. Our band has a combined more than 100 years of experience performing at legendary clubs like House of Blues, the Bassment, Untitled, and much more. We value our reputation, and that is reflected in our quality service. Our longevity is a true testament to these high standards.

We don't do cookie-cutter.

Listen, we get it. The classics are classics – and we know them all and then some. We pride ourselves on having experience in various genres, including Motown, soul, funk, jazz, hip hop, pop, and more. When you book Funktastic, you aren't getting a limited song selection list. On the off-chance we don't already know your favorite song; rest assured we'll learn it! In fact – we are committed to learning up to six songs outside our repertoire for your event.

High energy is our middle name.

Whether it's a slow jam or punchy pop tune you're looking for, we bring high energy to everything we do. We understand that music ultimately sets the vibe for any event, and we take that responsibility seriously! Packing a dance floor is all about having that magnetic enthusiasm to draw you in.

Ready to make music magic?

Our packages are completely customizable and tailored to your wedding needs and vibe! Send us a message with your event date and ideal budget, and let's make your big day one for the history books.
