Three in a Row - Easter 2016

Manchester Wedding Band LeFunk John Gilbert

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

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

Manchester Wedding Band LeFunk Mercure Hotel

A Happy New Year from all of us at LeFunk! Over Christmas, we were busy playing Balls and Christmas Parties including an RAF base, a Premier League Football ground, and the iconic Piccadilly Mercure Hotel. It's been another great year for LeFunk!, during which we've expanded our pool of musicians to include Paul on bass, and Gadge as deputy drummer.

The new acoustic duo, LeLounge!, featuring Laura-Jayne Hunter and Dave Carter, has been a great success, already securing regular bookings at venues including Oddfellows and the John Millington.

So a merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to all of you, especially all the fun loving audiences we have played for this year. The full band played their last gig of the year on Xmas Eve at the Rising Sun in Hazel Grove, and MiniLeFunk! played the Grey Mare in Harwood on New Year's Eve.

September - Gadge's Debut

Congratulations to our deputy drummer Gadge on his impressive debut gig at the Horse and Farrier. Check out the hybrid kit he uses - a combination of Roland electronic pads and real cymbals that sounds fantastic.
After a busy month playing more local venues October will see us back in full function band mode playing weddings, annual balls and charity events, plus a first performance at the Pack Horse in Hayfield for LeLounge!.

Who Are LeFunk! Party & Function Band?

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.

Party & Wedding DJ Service and PA

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.

Wedding First Dance or Special Requests

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.

Public Liability and Emergency Cover

  • We have deputy musicians who rehearse with us and can usually cover for last minute emergencies.
  • We have Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million
  • Our electrical equipment is PAT tested each year.

Planning, Clothing, Playing

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.

Classical and Organ Music for your Party or Wedding

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.

  • Classical Piano
  • Classical Guitar
  • Lounge Singer (Recorded or live piano/acoustic guitar accompaniment)

Band Line-Ups

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.

  • Lead Vocalist (Female)
  • Electric Bassist and Vocalist (Male)
  • Electric Guitarist and Backing Vocalist (Male)

  • The main band's repertoire is almost entirely comprised of classic dance hits.
  • We cover songs from the 60s right up to the present day, including plenty of 60s soul and 70s disco.
  • Other genres including Indie, American Songbook, Easy Listening, Country, Classical and Contemporary Pop can be performed by our band members as an optional extra.
  • For a more detailed guide to all our repertoire and live music services please see our songs page.

Volume? Too Loud? Sound Limiter?

  • LeFunk! play as loud as you decide.
  • Weddings and birthdays are social occasions. We think guests should be able to hear each other!
  • By switching to our electronic drum kit, even the full band can play at singing voice level . At venues with a sound limiter there is therefore no danger of us triggering a power cut.
  • Of course if you do want it loud, we can crank it up for a floor thumping nightclub experience either with Mini-LeFunk! or the full band!
