We're delighted to announce that Laura-Jayne Hunter has taken over as our Lead Singer. Over the six years since we formed we've had three fantastic singers filling lead and deputy roles. Laura K joined us in 2010 leaving to become a deputy when her family grew in 2013 and Jade took over in 2014. Jade has managed to go one better and grow her family by two, with a baby girl arriving last month! Throughout this time Laura-Jayne Hunter (aka Looby) has appeared as a deputy and will therefore already be familiar to many of you. She is also the lead singer (and boss!) of our acoustic duo format which has been around for the last two years.
We initially met Looby at one of our first gigs, a Charity Ball at Shrigley Hall, where she was performing solo during the drinks reception. We were so impressed, not just by her singing, but also her interaction with the audience, that several months later, when we decided we needed a deputy to provide cover for illness or emergency we took a long shot and got in touch. She said yes - hoorah!
You'll be seeing more from Jade and Laura K from time to time in the future, but when you book us for events or come to see us at a public gig from now on it will be Looby who fronts us unless otherwise stated. Note the demos of Valerie, Forget You, and Rather Be on this page are all performed by Looby.
Wedding season is in full swing and we're playing some wonderful venues, most recently the Bowdon Rooms/Cinnamon Club near Altrincham where we had the pleasure of appearing on the same stage Shakatak will perform on at the end of this month. Professional in-house PA, lighting and Sound Engineer all included. Lovely food too!Photo above appears courtesy of ER Photography.
If you're thinking of making a late booking for your Summer 2016 wedding we still have three Saturdays available - 9th July, 6th August and 13th August.
A very enjoyable Easter run of gigs and everyone was up for fun out there this weekend. It's the first time we've played consecutive gigs with all three of our singers. On Thursday it was the Acoustic Duo with Laura-Jayne Hunter at Oddfellows Mellor, Friday the Trio with Laura K at the John Gilbert, and finally The Trio with Jade at the Bird in Hand in St Helens.
Jade will now be disappearing for a while, after next weekend's wedding booking. She's now at 7 months pregnancy, so the excellent Laura-Jayne Hunter will be fronting the band over the summer
We've recorded five new demos of the Acoustic Duo featuring Laura-Jayne Hunter and Dave Carter. You can check them out in the music player on the LeLounge Webpage.
In what has turned out to be a showcase event for our various band formats, Wigan Beer Festival this Saturday is going to be a great day out!
1pm - Laura-Jayne Hunter performs Indie Lounge chilled Indie Classics with Dave occasionally joining on guitar to perform as the Le-Lounge Acoustic Duo
4pm - Laura Jayne Hunter joins Dave and Paul to perform as the Mini-LeFunk! trio
7pm - The full five piece band perform an hour long set. Line-up of Jade, Gadge, Paul, Dave and Anna.
A popular Manchester based function band playing covers of classic pop, funk, soul and disco hits, we provide unbeatable quality and value for money with a dancefloor driven repertoire honed through years of playing weddings, birthdays, festivals, corporate events and clubs. See our press pack page for band member biographies.
In addition to the live band, we can provide all the recorded music you'll need, a DJ service, disco and stage lighting and your own microphone for speeches and announcements. We'll build your ideal playlists in advance, and also bring thousands of hits to satisfy your guests’ requests on the day.
If you would like us to perform a song that isn't in the band's current repertoire, this is almost always possible. This could be your first dance, or a special song for the occasion.
As a professional wedding and party band LeFunk! will adapt to the flow or character of your event. Set lengths can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, buffets, 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! we don't just turn up on the night and play - we work with you, from the moment you book us, to help realise your plans.
Additional, more subtle, music can be performed by members of the band during the earlier phases of an event such as welcome drinks or the ceremony itself. LeFunk!'s keyboard player is the organist at a Manchester city centre church and could perform at your wedding ceremony if required! Requests may be possible on the day if music can be provided, or advance notice is given.
The main band is available in two formats; the 5 piece or a compact trio. With this adaptability we can play at venues ranging in size from a bar corner to large hotels and concert halls!
We also perform as an acoustic duo - perfect if you're after a more ambient lounge music experience.
