    Highly recommended!

    We are so pleased we chose Function Republic to play at our wedding. They smashed every song, they've got fabulous taste in music and we had so many compliments from our guests. The dance floor was full the whole night. We've been to lots of weddings and I've got to say, the best band by far! Highly recommended!

    Best decision we made

    The band performed for us on Saturday 3rd at our wedding and were absolutely incredible. They were better than anything we could have imagined. Everyone commented on how great they were and there was never a moment when the dance floor was empty. They were extremely organised with the run up to the wedding. We had an acoustic duo for the drinks reception which was beautiful. Then we has the four piece band for the main part of the wedding. I couldn't recommend anyone else more highly.

    100% book this band

    100% book this band! We had so many compliments from guests asking where we found them. They sound amazing, get everyone dancing and we had the most perfect atmosphere in the evening. They are really responsive and organised in the planning and run up to the wedding so that part was also a breeze.

    Out of this world!

    WOW! Function republic... There are literally no words to describe how amazing and talented this band is. Claire is absolutely fantastic and so kind and helped us so much with organising our day and being so useful. Everyone at the wedding said how amazing the band at our wedding was- we wouldn't have wanted anyone else. Their performances had everyone dancing and smiling. They truy made our wedding for us. Claire also helped us with background music and kindly set up a lot earlier so that everything was ready for when it was time for dancing. They are so accommodating and friendly... would 11/10 times recommend these guys!!!

    Wedding 07.08.2021

    We want to say a big thank you to Function Republic for their energy and enthusiasm at our wedding in August. One of the first weddings after the lockdown restrictions had fully eased and you could tell they were so excited to be back playing. We received so many compliments from guests on what a great band they were (we had gold republic). They sounded slick and polished; they really delivered a spectacular set. Thank you again for being part of our special day!

    Full of talent and energy, they had everyone on their feet for the entire night.

    An absolutely amazing band! They are so talented. They read the room perfectly and played a great selection of music, catering to every age group. Full of talent and energy, they had everyone on their feet for the entire night. Claire was a dream to deal with before the event and ensured us that everything would run smoothly on the day, which it absolutely did. Songs were clearly added to the playlist based on conversations with Claire, which went down a treat on the night. Function Republic are an incredible group and will be hoping to use them for any event going forward. Would highly, highly recommend for every kind of function!

    We couldn't have wished for a better or nicer band to perform at our wedding. Our friends and family continue to talk about how great you guys were. Thank you for performing our first song for us, you smashed it, and thanks for making our day so special!

    Perfect song choices, highly organised, talented and a friendly group of people

    We booked Gold Republic (the 4 piece line up) to perform at our wedding, and we have no regrets! we loved how engaging they were with our guests. Perfect song choices, highly organised, talented and a friendly group of people. It was a pleasure to have them there on our special day. I will be recommending to all of our friends!

    They really helped make our day an unforgettable one

    Having Sapphire Republic perform at our church ceremony was such a special touch and helped to make our day unforgettable.

    We were worried about keeping guests occupied during the signing of the register, so we were recommended these by our friends. They performed a set during our drinks reception and also had their evening band perform all the classics!

    They had us on the dance floor all night, they really helped make our day an unforgettable one.
