The Phunky Monkeys are one of the most extraordinary groups of musicians I have ever seen play. Every single person said they were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding, & I don’t know how a better band could possibly exist. I recommend them with my entire being, and if you make a single decision for your wedding/event, make that decision hiring the Phunky Monkeys, and everything else will fall into place.


Worth Every Penny!

The Phunky Monkeys are professional, talented beyond belief, entertaining, kind, fun, engaging, and non-stop! As a couple we decided that booking the best wedding band we could find was a priority. The band really can MAKE the party. And, PM did just that. Our guests didn't even want to take a break for the bathroom for fear of missing the next song! They even learned 2 or 3 songs for our first dance and dances with our parents.

Absolutely Mind-Blowing!

I did a destination wedding in New Orleans and have been obsessed with this band ever since seeing one of their videos, but nothing prepares you for how incredible this band is at a wedding. Our coordinator and vendor said they’ve never seen so many people on the dance floor the entire night, we couldn’t stop dancing! I continue to get SO many compliments from our guests on the band and for me and my partner, it made our wedding day.

The Phunky Monkeys were AMAZING!!!

We had the pleasure of having the Phunky Monkeys play at my daughter's wedding last weekend (DiCarlo/Crouch Wedding) in New Orleans. From the beginning of our correspondence (nine months prior), until the day of the event and after, the Phunky Monkeys were exceptionally professional. Michael was extremely easy to work with and was always responsive and detail oriented.

I wish I could give these guys 50 stars

They were phenomenal, professional, and easy to work with. During the mother-son dance, my mother-in-law thought they were playing a record- nope, their Louis Armstrong is that good. They played everything from Prince and Queen to the Friends theme song and SEC fight songs. My uncle said they're the best band he's seen in his almost 50-year career.

The Phunky Monkeys is where it's at!!!!

They played for my daughter's wedding and were phenomenal!. Everyone was pleased and said where they go they will follow. They were so awesome, they interacted with the crowd and even sang to my 90-year-old mother, who never missed a dance in her wheelchair. Best band ever!!! I will highly recommend this band! Our family can't stop talking about them!

They are the BEST!

My wedding was on 3/25/23 and my guests are STILL talking about how incredible the band was! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night and it was so much fun! I can’t recommend them enough! Absolute highlight of our wedding.

Brigid R

Probably the best band I have ever had

WOW!!!!! My son got married Saturday night April 15th. And words cannot express how awesome this band is. Probably the best band I have ever had the pleasure listening to. My sons in-laws picked the best band for their wedding ever. I want to thank the band for making Seth and Mary Mercers night extra special. They not only can sing awesome they are so entertaining.

More stars are needed for a higher rating

The Phunky Monkeys will make your wedding the talk of the town! Have you ever been to a wedding where almost 100% of the guests are on the dance floor? This band is amazingly talented... The talent on one stage is unbelievable. I should have had a clue that a proposal was coming when my daughter told me “mom, when I get married I want the Phunky Monkeys for the band”. If you want your guests to have the most fun time at your wedding, book this band!

Bridget S

I wish I could give the Phunky Monkeys 10 stars!

I cannot even begin to thank you for leading the way into the most perfect reception EVER! The Phunky Monkeys are truly the BEST!!! Hands down!!! The music, the visuals, the horns, the confetti machine…!!! I could go on and on!!!!!! So many people remarked that y’all are the BEST band they’ve ever heard at a wedding reception. The Phunky Monkeys aren’t one of your “common” cover bands.. The talent on that stage is astounding!

Evelyn M

These guys are the TRUTH!

These guys are the TRUTH! They were by far the best wedding band I have ever heard and our guests could not stop talking about them. Every song they played was true to the original and they can do it ALL. They even learned all of our first dance songs! We did not stop dancing for the entire party. Their brass band (The Brass Monkeys) also played our second line. Worth every penny, I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
