LeFunk! Wedding Band and Party Band Logo

LeFunk! is a funk, disco, soul, motown and pop covers band with Acoustic duo and DJ Service options formed in 2010 in the North West UK, with the experience of playing hundreds of weddings, conferences, balls, birthdays.. LeFunk! is a classic dancefloor covers band formed in 2010 in Manchester. If you are looking to bring a fun, party atmosphere to an event, be it a wedding, birthday, festival or conference, then LeFunk! could be the perfect choice. The band is available in three formats, the 5 piece, 4 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! We can also provide additional live classical piano, classical guitar or solo vocal performances as background music during the earlier phases of an event, and an acoustic duo option. The band normally provides a one stop - live band, recorded music and PA solution for your entire event, with DJ service, lighting and a radio microphone connected to the PA for you to make speeches and announcements. Once booked we'll do our best to build your ideal playlists in advance, but with immediate access to thousands of hits from the last 6 decades, we 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 the we 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, we have deputy musicians who rehearse with the band and can usually cover for last minute emergencies and have Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million. Many venues are now insisting that the latter is provided. LeFunk! will work with you to ensure we 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. 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.
