Mrs. Keely King (Thomas)
Mrs. Keely King (Thomas)
“The Funtime Frankies were, to put it simply, amazing. We had each guest choose a song prior to the wedding and they factored each one into the night. Their service on the lead up to the day was fantastic and they took away the stress of that part of the day. The lads were so nice and friendly before and on the day. Their equipment and talent was second to none. We asked them to play our first song too and it was perfect. All of our guests asks about them and gave great feedback. Awesome!!”

“The Funtime Frankies were excellent throughout and we could not fault them. We first saw the Frankies at our friend’s wedding last year and we knew we had to book them for ours as soon as we saw them! A great set and our guests didn’t want them to stop playing!! The guys actually played a couple of extra songs at the end just because of the guests asking them to!! Awesome!!”

Mr. Simon Hall
Mr. Simon Hall
“Literally everyone who came to our wedding has commented about how good these guys were! From our first dance they kept the dancefloor packed all night long. At most weddings it’s a battle to get people up and dancing but not with these boys on the stage! Great energy and stage presence with a superb collection of party classics! Forget the rest and book the best!!”
Mr Nicholas Jackson
Mr Nicholas Jackson
“These guys were simply awesome! I’m a music teacher myself, so to say I’m fussy about the musicians I use is an understatement and these guys did not disappoint from start to finish. They accommodated ALL songs requests for my wife and I, and were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. The dance floor was full all evening and the range of musical styles was not only diverse but relevant for our wedding reception. Everyone, bar none, has commented on how amazing they were. Great Guys!”
Mrs. Vicky Hunt (Laverty)

“Dead good”

Mr. Ben Savigar-Jones

“We were keen to have FF tell us what was best suited to a wedding. We have our own tastes bet we wanted a proper party not a procession of our favourite songs that wouldn’t have created a good atmosphere. We initially thought we were hiring a band but in reality it was full entertainment. The band mixed well with guests when they were having a break, the singer got others involved and the music was varied all ages were on the dance floor for the whole evening. The best wedding band I’ve seen.”

Mr. Gareth Liversidge
Mr. Gareth Liversidge

“Awesome band. Everyone at the wedding loved and have commented on how good our band was and they made the evening doo. Everyone was up dancing and enjoying the music. Good communication and value for money. We were running late and they still did there full set no problems asked. Very professional and would highly recommend to others. Catered for our first dance no problems. Gave us a choice of some songs form their set list. Performed for other 2 ½ hours in total.”

Mrs. Zarah Brooks
Mrs. Zarah Brooks

“The important thing about your wedding band is that they get everyone up and dancing and The Funtime Frankies are fantastic at that! They have a gift for engaging with their audience in a fun cheeky way and played a range of music across the decades that got young and old up on the dance floor. We still get comments to this day about how amazing they were.”

Mr. Keith Heard
Mr. Keith Heard

“An enthusiastic, talented and charismatic band who are fantastic value for money. We were delighted with the level of performance provided, everyone of our guests were entertained by the band. The band are able to appeal to a variety of generations tastes. The dynamic amongst the band is also fantastic and they know to interact with an audience. Brilliant.”

Mr. Paul Burns

“The Funtime Frankies are an incredible band, they learned our first dance song and played it beautifully. They connected with our audience so naturally and played all the songs we requested and some new ones, everyone at the reception commented on how fantastic hey were and could they have their details to book them for their parties. The whole band are so nice it was like have our best friends playing for us, they were so so good, wouldn’t hesitate recommending to anyone, live them!.”

“To be quite honest I was thinking about postponing my wedding as my very close grandma died just 3 days before I was due to get married. Anyway my fiancé, family and friends talked me out of it but he last thing I wanted to do was celebrate. I was over the moon when we had sad our vows but at night I just wanted to go home and be with my family, however the Funtime Frankies came on and everybody’s spirits just lifted. They was absolutely amazing and even I had a dance. I can’t thank them enough.”

Mr. Mark Easton

“What an awesome band. They absolutely rocked it, and seemed to have an infinite supply of energy. The playlist was great, something for everyone. They were also very flexible. Their set didn’t start until quite a bit later than it was supposed to (our fault), but they were incredibly understanding.”

Mr. Ben Kinving
Mr. Ben Kinving

“The Frankies were by far one of the main highlights of our wedding day and difintiely my happiest purchase of the wedding, the band themselves were very pleasant to get along with and very accommodating, they kept good contact in the lead up to the wedding and were happy to answer all queries. Their setup was really quick and efficient with no issues. Being a hugh lover a live music I knew their setup was spot on the size of room they were playing in and the music they played was fantiastic.”

Mr. Daniel Chadwick
Mr. Daniel Chadwick

“The Funtime frankies are by far the best and most interactive band we have come across in the past 16 years! We are sociable people so have often attended numerous weddings, functions and gigs. We were looking for a bad who could match our own personalities and expectations and we certainly found them. Fast forward to the end of my wedding night and I’m singing on stage with the funtime frankies to mysterious girl after a rendition with the best men of your song! Amazing, engaging and fun!”

“The Funtime Frankies were fantastic. We went to see them in a bar before the wedding and they had everyone up on their feet dancing. They did not fail to do exactly the same on our wedding, the dancefloor was full all night. They are a really fun bunch who make you feel relaxed and confident in their performance. They were brilliant at replying to emails, even learnt the song for our first dance and accepted requests form me the night before I would definitely recommend and use them again.”

Dr. Rob Lawlor

“Excellent range of music, from popular songs the guests would enjoy to blues and soul I like. They even learnt two of my favourite songs at no extra cost – and they weren’t even for the first dance: SRV’s Love Struck Baby and Allen Toussant’s a Certain Girl. Also provided a disco with my choice of music, and a good mix of pop and more obscure music. Were happy to play Little Feat a second time because my dad missed it the first time.”

Mrs. Sonia Gomall (Street)
Mrs. Sonia Gomall (Street)November 28, 2015 - Samlesbury Hall, nr Blackburn

“After seeing Funtime Frankies at a wedding fair we were blown away by the talent! We looked at other live acts (dj’s/singers) but they were charHong £800+ for one person!! Afer enquiring with Funtime Frankies we were ecstatic about the price for a whole band! The mix of music was brilliant it catered for all my friends and families taste and to add the cherry on top they were able to play our wedding song live! The guys were great friendly and kept the party going! Loved them!!”
