"Funk Evolution made our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER! My husband and I live in Boston, originally from NY, and we listened to quite a few bands in both areas. Funk Evolution's musical talent, energy level and fun is not comparable to any other bands we listened to. In addition to their amazing music, Rocco is an absolute sweetheart to work with and he really takes the time to get to know his bride and groom. We had some tough circumstances prior to our wedding that forced us to delay it for a year. He was extremely supportive and used the length of time as an opportunity to really get to know us, and we consider him a friend. He is one of the most genuine people we have ever met and it was evident to all of our family and friends that celebrated with us! We hired a videographer and are so happy we did, because we can relive the unforgettable evening with Funk Evolution over and over again and see all the people we love most having the best time, singing and dancing non stop with FE! Thank you Rocco and the entire band for all you did for us. HIRE THIS BAND BEFORE ITS TOO LATE! THEY BOOK FAST!"

"Absolutely amazing is the understatement of the century. I cannot say enough kind words about Funk Evolution. My husband and I had FE play at our wedding and was the best night of our lives! All of our family and friends are still raving about them. FE creates such a fun, upbeat, positive atmosphere! Everyone had the time of their lives and were dancing the night away to every song that FE played! They are such a great group of guys to work with. Rocco is such a kind hearted, thoughtful and helpful person. He helped us create the perfect set and experience we could've ever dreamed of! Funk Evolution is truly such a fantastic band and I would higly recommend them!"

   "My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of Funk Evolution!  To begin with, they are not a "wedding band"....they are an amazing band that just happens to also play weddings.  Being huge music fans, we are not a couple that's easily impressed, so when we got engaged we knew that finding the right band was one of our most important missions.  And so we set out on "wedding band tour," catching bar shows and even spectating behind the scenes at a few weddings to see some of the wedding bands that the Capitol District has to offer.  It wasn't long until we realized that all of those bands were just that....typical, cheesy wedding bands.



   We heard about Funk Evolution from a friend, and went to check them out at a Halloween show.  Seeing their energy and stage presence sold us immediately, and it was not long until we had them booked to play our big day!  Rocco was extremely professional, beyond easy to work with, and after all is said and done we are happy to call him a new friend!  FE was eager to learn the songs we requested, and pulled them off with ease, while adding their own style to everything played at our wedding.  When the wedding was over, and for weeks to come, one of the things we heard from our guests time and time again was how amazing the band was!  We have to say that although it's true that there are so many things out of your control on your wedding day, if you have Funk Evolution play one thing is for sure - everyone is sure to have a blast!"


Thanks again Rocco, keep in touch!

Dear Funk Evolution,

You already know how much we love you by how frequently we attend your shows, but, we wanted to send an extra special thanks because our wedding couldn't have been any better. Our guests comments included: "The band at your wedding was so good, the next wedding I went to seemed very boring." We couldn't agree more and don't look forward to going to weddings with any other band or DJ. Thank you so much.

We firmly believe that at the heart of every great performance is complete preperation and attention to detail.


While some groups focus on providing an enormous song-book; 

funk evolution's focus on quality and preparation

allows us to entertain you and your guests with our choreographed dance moves, our exciting song arrangements and providing our undivided attention to you all night!

Hey Rocco,

Marni and I just wanted to thank you and Funk Evolution again for such a great night.  We really appreciate everything you and the band did to make the night so special for us. Everyone had an amazing time and we continue to get compliments about how great the band was at our wedding.  We hope to see you guys again soon and wish you continued success in the future.

                                  Be well,

Hey Jim,
I just wanted thank you for taking the time to speak with me back in February and helping to bring Funk Evolution to my attention as the band to play my wedding.  It has been a week since my wedding and I'm still receiving compliments about how great their performance was.  They were our favorite vendor to work with during all of the months and weeks leading up to our wedding and Rocco's service and attention to detail were unmatched.  Rocco and Funk Evolution's performance truly brought our wedding to another level and I would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a band to play their wedding, or any other event. Thanks again for your help Jim.

Alexander & Beth Younkins  10.12.2013 ~ Empire State Plaza Observation Deck  

When we started to plan our wedding, there were three things that needed to be perfect. The first one being extraordinary entertainment, second being delicious food and third being a gorgeous venue that was comfortable to fit our 300 plus guests. 
We partied with Funk Evolution at a bar in Albany before we were engaged; at that point we knew they would be our band. Funk Evolution was the first vendor we chose for our wedding because the talent they have is impeccable; the energy they bring to their show is exciting and the music they play is stimulating. 

We reached out to them and spoke with Rocco; he was extremely friendly and supportive from the day we signed the agreement, to the day of our wedding. They were prepared to learn new songs to accommodate us, they let us select certain songs from their widespread list that we did and did not want played and they brought professional lighting that shaped the experience of our reception from average to impressive. 

Our wedding day has come and gone and I wish we could do it all over again, as I am sure most brides do! Funk Evolution will forever have a special place in our heart because they not only impressed every guest, but they helped create the dream we had and they made it flawless. We highly recommend Funk Evolution to any Bride and Groom looking to hire a band at their wedding.  

                                                                                    A very happy bride,

                                                                                         Beth Polsinello-Younkins

"Ron and I got married in July of 2013 and when looking back and talking to friends we can honestly all agree that the highlight of the night was the live entertainment of Funk Evolution! Not only are they an extremely talented group of individuals but their personalities are one of a kind. We first met Rocco and the Funk Evolution band in the Winter of 2012 when looking for a band for our wedding. We went to see them play a few times and one night when I made a specific request for a song (Mustang Sally) not on their playlist that night they played it as the very next song and sealed the deal for me. We booked Funk Evolution a year in advance and saw them many times in downtown Saratoga and Schenectady and every single time Rocco made it a priority to come talk to me, my bridesmaids and family members. By the time our wedding came it honestly felt like our friends were playing for us. On the wedding day I requested for them to play Mustang Sally for my dad and I to dance to and it was just as prefect as I had been imagining for years!

                                                                    Thank you Funk Evolution!"
