Congratulations Kristy & Ben!

What a lovely couple  Kristy and Ben are! We had so much fun collaborating with them in the lead up to their wedding at The Boathouse in Palm Beach. As a member of the wedding industry (currently working as part of the wonderful team at WEOA), Kristy found us after watching our MD Gus give a talk at The Wedding Planner Workshop – apparently his presentation on our live acts, namely The Usual Suspects, made her rethink her decision to book a DJ for her entertainment!

The brief Kristy gave us was for her guests to have ‘an amazing time and be up all night dancing! I really want it to be an ABBA and John Farnham free zone’ – which with TUS was certainly something we were able to deliver. Ben and Kristy chose the following songs for their special moments:

Bridal Party Entrance: Feel So Close – Calvin Harris. That drop never fails to get the party started.

Bridal Waltz: The One I Love – David Gray. A personal favourite of the bride and groom.

Farewell Song: Everlong – The Foo Fighters. The lyrics ‘And I wonder/When I sing along with you/If everything could ever feel this real forever/If anything could ever be this good again’ convey a beautiful message of togetherness, as well as so much love and positive hope for Ben and Kristy’s future together. After the official farewell, Kristy came back into the venue to request a cheeky last-minute encore of Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson. This feel-good crowd pleaser was the perfect high to end the night on – when the groom ends up crowd surfing, you know it’s been a good gig!

On the monday following the event, Kristy sent through a little note that absolutely made our day. Our whole month even.

Let me just start by saying….. WOW – WHAT A BAND!!!!!!!
We had the most incredible time last weekend, the dance floor was packed all night, I have had countless people ask me who the band were and how I found them, followed by ‘best band ever!’. From the very beginning TUS had people on the dance floor and many never left – there was one point where I walked away for a second and when I came back I couldn’t even find room on the dance floor – lucky for me though I was the bride so was able to kick people out of the way ha! 
So many people have said it was the best, most fun, wedding they have ever been to – and I honestly believe if it weren’t for the The Usual Suspects the feedback wouldn’t have been so amazing. I don’t know what else to say but thank you, I am almost disappointed I won’t be getting married again, but if I do I will be sure to book The Usual Suspects haha! Ben would say the same thing so I don’t feel bad 🙂 
Again, thank you – the usual suspects helped make our wedding day one of the most memorable, amazingly fun and best days of our lives.

Thanks Kristy and Ben! It’s been so fantastic getting to know you guys and it was a complete pleasure working with you both!

All the best,

The Funkified team
