What can I say about Laura Jayne Hunter apart from how fantastic she was. Laura made our event so special with her amazingly talented vocals. If you haven't heard her voice all I can say is you MUST

Dave and Laura, thank you so much for a fantastic night on Saturday. Everyone loved it, as I knew they would. Look forward to finding another event to book with you!

(Carol - Golf Club Captain's Day Jun 2016)

We have been so lucky to have Laura-Jayne every month as one of our featured artists. She has developed quite a following. Laura has a fabulous voice, is passionate about her music and has a personality that gets the audience eating out of her hand

May 2016 - A Year On

Manchester ACoustic Duo LeLounge! Laura-Jayne-Hunter

Well it's about a year since we started LeLounge! Acoustic Duo as a spin off from LeFunk! Party and Function Band. In that time we've secured regular repeat bookings at venues such as Cedar Tree Restaurant Rochdale, Oddfellows Mellor, John Millington Cheadle Hulme, Roundhouse Hayfield and others.

We're also getting a steady stream of bookings for private functions, often for the earlier phase of weddings before the main LeFunk! Party and Function band take over. In this time the repertoire has grown massively and we're adding something new almost every week.

We can now adapt the format on the fly to suit the crowd, able to switch to a full band sound for dancing at the end of the night using backing tracks to accompany live guitar and vocals, or softer classical guitar for a more chilled mood. With this flexibility we have a repertoire of around 400 songs to draw from!

If you're interested in booking us give Dave a call on 07754 781 578 or come to one of our public dates and have a chat with us about your event. You can also fill out the form on the LeFunk! Bookings page or contact us by email at wearelefunk@yahoo.co.uk

Manchester Based Acoustic Duo

LeLounge is based in Manchester and is available for hire for any event in Cheshire, Derbyshire, Stockport, North Wales, Lancashire, Staffordshire or South Yorkshire. Perfect entertainment for Wedding Breakfasts, Anniversaries, Drinks Receptions, Restaurants and Bars requiring live acoustic music.

Party & Wedding DJ Service and PA Add On

If you want to dance to louder music later we can provide all the recorded music you'll need, a DJ service, disco, lighting and your own microphone for speeches and announcements. We'll build your ideal playlists in advance and bring thousands of hits to satisfy your guests’ requests on the day.

Wedding First Dance or Special Requests

Let us know if you would like us to perform a song that isn't in LeLounge's current repertoire. This could be your first dance, or a special song for the occasion.

Public Liability and Emergency Cover

  • We have Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million
  • Our electrical equipment is PAT tested each year.
  • For peace of mind we have deputy musicians (both guitar and vocal) to cover for emergencies.

Planning, Clothing, Playing

As experienced professional wedding and function musicians we will always dress smartly when performing. Performance times can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, buffets, raffle results or speeches and arrival and set up times can usually be arranged to minimise disruption to guests. Set up time is normally twenty minutes, and we require an area of around 2m x 2m. When you book LeLounge we won't just turn up on the night and play - we'll work with you, from the moment you book us, to help realise your plans.

Classical Guitar, Dance Party Duo and Wedding Singer Options

As the duo of Dave and Laura-Jayne we can offer three additional live music options to add further variety and sophistication to your event. Classical Guitar pieces can be performed by Dave during the welcome drinks or the ceremony itself. Laura Jayne Hunter can also sing solo or using backing tracks during any phase of your event, performing anything from easy listening to popular dance hits. We can also perform party dance classics from the LeFunk repertoire as the duo, with live vocals and guitar over self produced backing tracks for bas, drums and keyboards. This means you can start softly with the acoustic duo and switch to the sound of the full LeFunk! band for a livelier second set.

Repertoire

LeLounge perform anything from Bossa and Jazz Standards to Classic Pop Hits from the 60s to the current day. The repertoire is always changing but the list below shows songs we were performing as at June 2016.
