“The first time we saw FUNKTASTIC we were out of our seats and dancing. From that point on we became middle aged groupies, marking our calendars , saving the dates that Mike and his amazing group perform. What a treat when Funktastic recently played for our Newlywed Celebration. Not far into their first song a party guest ran to alert those outside.." You gotta come hear these guys ! " Funktastic works the room better than most bands and can play to all ages. I've lost count of the number of times I have enjoyed their music but can count on a great performance every time . They have yet to disappoint. THANKS MIKE”

“We first heard Funktastic play at The Bassment two years ago. They had the crowd dancing the entire night with an energy that was contagious. When we got engaged, the first thing we did was book Funktastic for our wedding! They were incredible to work with - from the planning stage to traveling to Peoria for the big event. All of our guests couldn't stop talking about the talented band from Chicago that kept people on their feet all night....and they are still talking about it two months later! The wide variety of music got people of all ages on their feet dancing and Laura's beautiful voice was captivating! The sax, drums, and bass were no exception! Mike is not only is an amazing band leader, but also a phenomenal MC. We were SO lucky and happy to have found the best band to play at the most special celebration of our life. Thank you for making our reception one that will go down in history!”

“If you like live funk music as much as my wife and I do, Mike Zabrin's Funktastic are exactly the kind of band you want at your event. The whole band are super talented musicians who brought so much energy, tight beats and deep grooves to our wedding reception. The moment the band started to play everyone was on the dance floor getting down and kept it going for hours. We made a number of specific song requests and they killed them. Mike plugged right into our program and took on MC duties masterfully. Seriously, such a good band. We highly recommend Mike Zabrin's Funktastic! Thanks Mike! Keep it funky! ”

“I couldn't have asked for a better time! Mike Zabrin's FUNKTASTIC played at our wedding and not only were myself and my husband groovin' and movin' to the show but our family and guests were quite impressed that we had gotten such a hip band. Even my 70 year old mother-in-law said, " I didn't even know what funk music was. And after seeing that band [Funktastic] I realize...that I really like it." I look forward to following the band schedule to see them play in the near future. ”
