    Queer as Funk

    Hiring Queer As Funk for the after party to our wedding was the best decision we made (after choosing each other, of course). We live on a small island and invited the whole community to join the party. Months later, everyone is still raving about it and asking when the band is coming back. People were up and dancing from the moment Queer As Funk took the stage until DJ Slade closed out the night. Alison was amazing to work with and the band totally rocked it. We’d hire them again in a heartbeat! Queer As Funk was the perfect way to celebrate our queer love, marriage and community.

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Anne-Marie and Deb, thank you so much! What a magical night. We loved celebrating with you, your friends and family, and the awesome community of Quadra Island. We haven't stopped talking about it. Big love to you both!

    Incredibly talented, fun, unique band and GREAT at throwing a party!

    My wife and I are SO happy with our decision to hire Queer as Funk for our wedding reception. What a blast it was. They played songs for all generations and are extremely talented. They are also interactive and fun - real crowd pleasers. Alison was incredibly helpful and responsive before the event as well, and even met us for coffee to chat about exactly what we wanted from. We couldn't be happier and can't wait to see them again when they are playing next near us!

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Halley and Angie, thank you so much for having Queer As Funk at your reception, it was our absolute pleasure to celebrate with you! The night was amazing - we all still can't get over the Beyonce serenade. Goosebumps!! Thanks friends, all the best.

    Best Wedding Dance Band Ever

    I LOVE this band. They are exciting, tight, playing both old-school r&b, funk and soul AND up to date numbers; the energy never lagged, the band was SO fun to watch as well as dance to. It was my wedding day and I was exhausted, but I could NOT. STOP. DANCING. They even emailed me beforehand to ask what song we wanted for our first dance, and gave me suggestions. And any band that has that much fun on stage should be at your wedding. Great value! Plus, we're as queer as the band is, which is lovely to have that reflection of our community on stage.

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Thank you, Patti! We had so much fun with you and Emilie at your wedding, what an amazing night! 💕 You are such a beautiful, generous couple, we wish you all the happiness in the world.

    The best band ever

    Queer as Funk was the absolute highlight of our wedding. Such talent, such energy, such a great party! They have so much fun on stage, but not even close to how much we were having listening and dancing to them. Highly recommend.

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Thanks Allison! Your wedding reception was a PARTY! Thanks for including Queer As Funk, we had a fantastic time celebrating with you and Oran.

    Queer as Funk is amazing! We got married last year and our guests are still raving about how wonderful the band was. Anyone planning a wedding knows that there can be a lot of things to be nervous about, however the music was not one of them. Alison , the band leader was always quick to get back to me if I had any questions and was great to work with. My wife and I are huge fans of Queer of Funk, so we knew that our guests were going to have a blast and they did. Both of us were so appreciative of the band's professionalism and awesome personality. The music was fantastic, lots of old Motown songs, mixed in with today's pop song as well. Queer as Funk was a hit with every single guest, everyone had so much fun; my wife's uncle asked us at the next concert if we could get him a band t-shirt, and of course we did. We highly, highly recommend Queer as Funk! If someone were to ask us what was the best decision we made for our wedding, we would say it was hiring Queer as Funk.

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Kelly and Jess! Your wedding was so beautiful, and so much fun. Thank you for having us, and for the wonderful review.

    Queer as Funk - what an epic and amazing experience !

    An evening with Queer as Funk is one of the most fun nights we have had in a long time ! We saw them on New Years Eve and they rocked the Wise Hall ! The energy they put out and how they got the crowd up and dancing was infectious. We were thinking about hiring them for our wedding, and that night we walked home and couldn't stop talking about how they were going to make the wedding something really special.

    From the moment we inquired with Alison, she was super informative and professional- she responded to all of our questions quickly, and was really helpful - from helping us decide the best place to set up to ensure the guests had a great time, to providing us with some great song list options. Unfortunately, we have had to put our 2020 wedding plans on hold like many other couples, and Queer as Funk was the most flexible vendor we worked with. During such a difficult and stressful time, they were so accommodating and genuinely supportive- made us feel that they really cared about us even during the chaos and stress of the last year.

    We will 100% be booking with them once we are able to re-schedule our wedding.

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Ian, this is so kind, thank you! I’m so glad you made it out to party with us on NYE. While we’re sad the big wedding celebration got postponed, we’ll have to have you and Mariella out on another occasion to celebrate your beautiful marriage and family.

    Best experience ever!

    If you need an incredible band to set the mood for your incredible party or wedding, you CAN'T go wrong with Queer as Funk. Having them perform at our wedding was amazing and I can't picture the day without them! They are all phenomenal musicians on their own, and together they're mind-blowing! Book them if you can!!

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Janelle and Patricia, thank you so much! The best part was having Janelle join us on stage, of COURSE! You slayed. :) Thank you for including us in your amazing day.

    best band ever!

    These guys ROCKED our wedding. Not only were they TOTAL pros, handling the delays and unexpected turns required of a big party, but they were sooooo nice and accommodating of our every request. They played requests, and even learned a tune for the occasion. They played a great Hava Nagila for a big Hora dance, were super nice to our guests, and gave a great show that kept us all dancing right till the end of the party.

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    Ah, we had so much fun playing your wedding, it was SPECTACULAR! Such an amazing, musical, beautiful group of people. The Hora was a blast. Thank you so much for having us, Danny and Nina, and happy first wedding anniversary!

    Best Wedding Band You Can Hire!

    They are amazing. The dance floor was full and hopping all night long. I have had many of our guests come up to us at and after the wedding to say how great the band was. They were a joy to deal with as well. If you want a great band for your wedding, HIRE THEM!!!!!!!

    Queer As Funk's reply:

    That night was AMAZING. What an incredible group of friends and family, you are loved by so many. Your wedding was next level. Sending so much love and congratulations from everyone in the band to you both.
