  • LeFunk! is a highly experienced covers band based in Manchester and specialising in classic funk, soul and disco hits. If you are looking to bring a fun, party atmosphere to an event, be it a wedding, birthday, festival or conference, then LeFunk! will provide it with a dancefloor driven repertoire honed through years of experience.

    The band is available in two formats, the 5 piece, or a compact trio, making LeFunk! the perfect choice for venue sizes ranging from the corner of a bar to large hotels and concert halls! They can also provide additional live classical piano or solo vocal performances as background music during the earlier phases of an event

    The band can provide a complete - one stop - live band, recorded music and PA solution for your entire event, including a DJ service, disco and stage lighting and your own microphone connected to the PA for you to make speeches and announcements. Once booked they'll do their best to build your ideal playlists in advance, but with immediate access to thousands of hits from the last 6 decades, they can also satisfy the vast majority of music requests on the day.

    If you have a special song that you'd like to be played live but isn't in the band's repertoire, given a month's notice the band will learn and play an additional song of your choice. This could for instance be a ballad for the ‘first dance’ at a wedding, or just another dance floor classic.

    For additional peace of mind, the band has deputy musicians who rehearse with the band and can usually cover for last minute emergencies and has Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million. Many venues
    are now insisting that the latter is provided.

    Finally be assured that LeFunk! will work with you to ensure they fit in to, rather than dictate, the flow of your event. Set lengths can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, raffle results and speeches. Clothing can be funky or formal. Arrival and set up times can usually be arranged to minimise disruption to guests. When you book LeFunk! they won't just turn up on the night and play - they'll work with you before hand to help realise your plans.

    Extras:
    -------
    Additional, more subtle live music can be performed by members of the band during the welcome drinks or meal phase of an event. This would comprise classical/cocktail piano/guitar with some easy listening female vocal mixed in. Some requests may be possible to satisfy if the piano music can be provided, or advance warning is given of any specific music required.

    Musician Bios:
    --------------
    Jade (Lead Vocals):
    Singing professionally in Ireland for over 8 years Jade performed for over 5000 people with Chris De Burg, Shane McGowan and Meatloaf at the INEC and has gigged with popular Irish Indie band the Coronas. She's played more weddings, clubs and pubs than she can remember both as part of a function band and in tributes to Abba, Blondie, Dolly Parton and Cher.

    Benn (Drums):
    Talented multi instrumentalist and Royal Northern College of Music (drums/percussion) graduate.
    Benn has played many venues around the UK with bands of all styles such as ‘Music Live’ at The Birmingham National Exhibition Centre, Manchester Academy, Manchester Club Academy and The RNCM. In keeping with his love of 60s and 70s soul music, Benn was the first drummer to play with a live band inside the legendary Twisted Wheel soul club in Manchester since closure in 1971, the previous band being The Spencer Davis Group! Benn is also the resident drummer at Alexander's Jazz Theatre in Chester where he regularly performs mid week with So What Now.

    Dean (Bass/Vocals):
    Dean has been playing bass for around 30 years, mostly working in a song-writing/recording partnership but also co-founding and playing for years with the popular Birmingham-based 60s cover band Tobacco Road.

    Anna (Keyboards):
    Classically trained and a graduate of Salford University (Popular Music and Recording) Anna is constantly in demand for live work with bands in the Manchester area and also gives regular church/recitals and tuition. Venues she's performed at include many Irish Centres such as Leeds, Huddersfield, Middlesborough, and Corby; and other prestigious venues for example the Longfield Suite at Prestwich and Wolverhampton Racecourse. She has also played at indie venues such as the Roadhouse, Club Academy, Ruby Lounge, and Night and Day, all well known in the Manchester area.

    Dave (Guitar/Backing Vocals):
    Dave has been playing guitar since he and Dean formed their first group as teenagers. He founded and performed with various university and function bands in Birmingham in the 80s, playing at major hotels including the National Exhibition Centre Metrapole. He has also played with Jazz and Jazz Funk bands at Alexander’s Jazz Theatre, Cinnamon Club, Iguana Bar and various other Manchester venues. More recently Dave has studied and played classical guitar up to Grade 8 ABRSM standard.

    Laura-Jayne Hunter aka Looby (Lead Vocals):
    Laura-Jayne trained in voice and performing arts at Manchester's Capitol Theatre before fronting indie-pop outfit Mia and covers band The Sun Band. Over the last few years she has been inundated with demand for her solo act 'Indie Lounge', comprising alternative chilled down versions of popular songs of all genres. Her versatile vocals have led to many varied bookings throughout her career at venues including Peckforton Castle, Band on the Wall, the Free Trade Hall and Manchester's Comedy Store (as a singer, not comedian!), along with countless function rooms at hotels up and down the country.

    Equipment:
    ----------
    The band has its own 2KW PA with separate mixes for front of house and on stage monitoring. It also provides its own stage/disco lighting and haze/smoke machine. The sound is clear and hi fidelity while powerful and pumping enough to provide for a dancing audience of up to 250 people in an indoor environment. For larger venues or outside events where a PA is not provided, the band can still play, but will hire in additional equipment, the cost of which would be added to the overall fee.
