We love to perform. New songs i.e. Shape of You - billion hits on u-tube, most popular Uptown Funk, Bruno Mars and the hits just keep flowing. We have downsized for the small stage and now working as a five/six piece group, we still have the horns if needed for the large venues but We want to work, small or large. If you have a small private party, a small birthday bash, whatever. We are ready NOW! I AM THE BAND LEADER AND I WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN. price is no obstacle..................
Been entertaining for the last 20 years, We have never let a client down - we play what you want. Why? We love to perform. Just make your offer any offer we are not kidding. Ask for Rick. Just say "We Want a Band" and to get us for the best price. After all I've said and you don't believe what I said then check our reviews not Gig Masters nor anyone can change it but the client. So see them and what they said, that is if you have the time so many. These reviews are all actual performed gigs by the Funk Monsters with true reviews submitted by the clients who booked and paid us. Please excuse my language but no BS. it's straight from the clients mouth. Thanks for taking the time to read this, I am serious. Please come visit our rehearsal in our large country studio in Lithia, Florida, just ask for your favorite song and we'll try to play it and even learn it. Even join in sing a little, Our "Motto" It has to be Fun". If we do good I want that review and get on our fan list and facebook. Thanks!

THANK YOU Funk Monster Band!! We loved every minute of your performance at our wedding reception. Literally every one of our guests was up on the dance floor. We absolutely loved your enthusiasm and talent. You were EXACTLY what we had dreamed of having at our wedding. I am a professional musician and hiring live musicians for our reception was imperative for us. We live in San Francisco and were going on recommendation alone when booking our band. I am beyond pleased. Our guests are still telling us how amazing our band was. Thank you so much. Next time we are in the area we will be at one of your performances!!

Wow is all I have to say! The Funk Monster Band exceeded our expectations! I had heard them previously at a friend's wedding, but have to say, they were even better than I remembered! The groom and I were very concerned about having a fun and energetic band that would get people dancing and The Funk Monster Band delivered and more so! Our guests were all asking where we found them, details and loved every minute of it! We keep hearing from our guests how much fun they had and how much they loved the band, which is exactly what we wanted! I would HIGHLY recommend using them and not to mention, professional, dependable, and so easy to work with!!

This band was the quintessential PROFESSIONAL band. If you are looking for a group of singers and musicians who are polished, who are the ultimate in being prepared, and in following your wishes, Funk Monster Band is the band. From the moment we hired them for our daughter's wedding through the last number, we were amazed at QUALITY. The room was filled with great music but NEVER too loud We would highly recommend this wonderful band to anyone who wants a first-rate band for a wedding or any other very special event.

The Funk Monster Band’s Response:

This was a great gig for us. The Mishner family were truly outstanding and first class all the way. We were thrilled to perform at their daughters wedding. The joy it gave us especially during the hora and watching them being paraded around up high in their chairs. Even the mom got a ride, I don't think she really like that but it was so much fun. This was a fun group and really know how to throw a party and dance. Thanks for the salmon and steak dinner it was great. The band

A band for our wedding was my husband's only request and I was very reluctant, but realized it was about what WE wanted. They were easy to work with and they MADE the reception. They were very accomodating with our requests and even learned our song, Michael Buble's Everything for free. They were so kind and I danced to all but two songs. It has been a week since our wedding and I still have people saying that our band was so amazing and deverse. Friends said this was the BEST reception they have ever been to and that was all due to the performance of the Monster Funk Band. Thank you so much for making it the best reception EVER!!!

There was a pretty wide age range of the people attending our event and Funk Monster had something for everyone. They really energized the crowd. They were also very accommodating on some last minute special requests. I have had nothing but positive feedback from the committee and attendees. I would highly recommend this group...top notch!!

Upon hiring Funk Monsters, we were alittle skeptical about hiring a band to sing our favorite songs that we have cherished for so long, but boy were we happy by the end of the night. Funk Monsters Band exceeded every expectation that we had for our special night. The Vocalists were incredibly talented, and the musicians hit every note in accord with one another. From the beginning, Richard accommodated every want and need and helped facilitate the whole night so it ran smoothly. There were no surprises or last minute changes(unless we requested them), and folks of all ages and backgrounds were up on the dance floor burning a hole in the carpet! Much thanks FMB!
