Many thanks and a happy new year to everyone we played for on New Year's Eve at the Acoustic Lounge in Poynton from Jade, Dave and Dean (Mini-LeFunk!).
Well done Poynton's Megan Franchez, not only for opening the show so brilliantly (what a voice!), but also organising the charity for which funds were raised on the night.
Wishing Andy every success with the venue for 2015 and hope to see you all again soon (maybe even next NYE as already requested!).
Check out all the live acts coming up at the Acoustic Lounge by visiting their facebook page here.
Saturday the 6th saw the full band play to a sell out crowd at the beautiful Kilhey Court Hotel Wigan, raising money for Medequip4Kids. A brilliantly organised event - our congratulations and thanks go to Sarah, Kate, Toastmaster Malcolm and all the staff at the Kilhey Court Hotel. We've already been asked to perform at the next one!
Friday 5th MiniLeFunk! were at the Cedar Tree Restaurant Newhey for the first of many Xmas Parties at this classy Tapas Restaurant with regular live music events and plenty of opportunity to work off the calories with a post meal bop. Well worth a visit - in fact our very own Laura Jayne Hunter (Looby) entertains here on Christmas Eve which should be a fantastic night!
A packed night at one of the best live music bars in Manchester and a perfect return for Jade after her Summer maternity leave. Thanks for all the rave reviews we received from management and punters. Next up - Xmas Party season begins, kicking off with Mini-LeFunk at the Cedar Tree Restaurant Newhey (5th Dec) and the sell out Charity Snow Ball for Medequip4Kids in Wigan (6th Dec).
We've been so busy over the last couple of months, there hasn't been time to keep you all updated! We've launched and gigged a new band format (see our News Page for details) and have performed both public and private gigs as the trio and full line-up. Most notably we played at Chester Race Course (where we had the honour of being introduced by Den Perry from Phoenix nights) and the tremendously successful Charity Ball at Manchester Airport Hilton which raised over £6000 for the Christie Hospital. Looby is still performing most of our gigs while Jade takes maternity leave. Coming up is a Halloween night at the Elizabethan, and a first appearance at the Steamhouse Sale, where we'll also be producing some new publicity photographs
Friday 5th September. It's time for the Destination Florida Charity gig at Altrincham Masonic Hall. £6 on the door if you haven't already bought a ticket. Enjoy four acts providing live music all night:
Mini-LeFunk! featuring our original vocalist Laura Kelly, Laura-Jayne Hunter performing her Indie Lounge solo repertoire , the fabulous velvety vocal and guitar sounds of Moody Elf and saxophonist Darren Clinton.
There will also be a short presentation telling you all about the great work that Destination Florida does for severely ill Children. Doors open at 7:30pm.
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.
