We brought What the Funk! back again for our very special running club's 50th Anniversary Gala and again were not disappointed. We were so happy that they were available for a second time especially for such a special occasion for us! As soon as they started playing, almost everyone in our group hit the dance floor. It was packed! I would highly recommend them to anyone. They are so impressive with their music, dance moves, and singing talents! I received so many compliments afterwards from our members that they were the highlight of the night! Thank you, What the Funk!
What the Funk did an awesome job rocking the crowd and keeping everyone entertained. They are prompt, entertaining, and can SING. Don't hesitate to book this group. Definitely a First Class Act that we will be booking again!!! They will not disappoint.... All Genre's covered!!

Thank you Lynell! It was hot, but we made it work and had a great time!
Such a great band! So lively! First time having them. We usually only have a few peeps on the dance floor but during 1st song, the dance floor was almost full!
