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!!”
Mrs Vicky Hunt (Laverty) “Honestly can’t tell you how amazing the Funtime Frankies were. Our dance floor wasn’t big enough for everyone dancing and everyone is still raving about how great they were.”
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.”
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. Ben Kinving “The Frankies were by far one of the main highlights of our wedding day and definitely 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 huge 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 fantastic.”
