Winners of the Entertainment of the Year “Live Bands” at the 2014 WEOA Awards!

We’re still on a high from Sunday’s award ceremony! So incredibly excited to have received this honour! A huge thank you to all of our suppliers, clients and most of all our amazing muso’s – you mean so, so much to us. We’re grateful beyond words to work with such a special, talented and just generally awesome group of people. X



The Usual Suspects at Amanda & Sam’s Wedding

So, so much love for these snaps from Amanda & Sam’s Gunners’ Barracks wedding! Absolutely stunning work by Lisa & Pete from And A Day. Take a look:



Such a party! In honour of the occasion, The Usual Suspects rolled out the following requests:

Bridesmaid’s Entrance: Run The World (Girls) – Beyonce

Groomsmen’s Entrance: Do Ya Think I’m Sexy – Tom Jones

Bride & Groom’s Entrance: Another One Bites The Dust – Queen

An upbeat party song is exactly what you want for your entrances. It sets the tone for the whole reception and gets everyone pumped for the night ahead. Amanda & Sam opted for tunes that were a little cheeky & sassy, which really helped to get their guests into the party mindset (as you can see below!)


Cake Cutting: Better Together – Jack Johnson. This is a great choice for cake cutting. It’s romantic & sweet, but mellow enough to simply compliment -rather then dominate- the moment.

Bridal Waltz: Everlong – The Foo Fighters. Amanda & Sam really demonstrated that you can never go wrong with a personal favourite for this special dance. It’s purely about the two of you – if you can choose something you both love then you’re on to a winner!

Farewell Song: I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston. Ending the night on a high with a dance floor classic! Flawless.

And there you have it. Just a few of many beautiful memories from a very special night 🙂

A few pics from Samee and Danny’s wedding

At Funkified, we love hearing from our newlyweds! Case in point, here are a few pictures Samee and Danny recently sent us from their beautiful ceremony in the Rose Garden at Oatlands House last April.
The couple booked our gorgeous Salt Strings Quartet to play the following:
Processional: “Canon in D” – Pachelbel.
A traditional and romantic favourite.
Signing: Signed, Sealed, Delivered – Stevie Wonder.
A popular request and bit of tongue-in-cheek!
Recessional: “Wedding March” – Mendelssohn.
Adding that extra bit of drama and excitement, this was the perfect note to close on!

We can’t thank Samee enough for the heartwarming testimonial she sent us after returning from their honeymoon in The Maldives:

“We would also like to say a big thank you to you and to the string band for making our ceremony perfect. You were all helpful from the start and professional till the end. The ladies were so lovely! 
Funkified’s positive can do attitude and professionalism will be remembered and will be recommend to many. I’m so glad that I found you online :)”

Thanks a lot Samee and Danny for this wonderful feedback. The Funkified team wishes you all the best!
Now that Funkified Entertainment has created an Instagram account, we are always looking for new images to post! If you are a former client of ours who is willing to share any of your favourite wedding shots, please send them through at (we’ll credit you and your wedding of course!).
