Paul has been teaching music and working on the session, deputy and function scene relentlessly for the past 15 years and this work has led him to perform with musicians from the New York River dance production as well as various past and present chart topping pop artists and music industry song writing teams.

Dave BDrums

We invited Dave to join the band in 2017 after he'd deputised brilliantly for us on several high profile gigs in 2016.

Dave started playing drums aged 13, inspired by Roger Taylor and Queen performing on TV. After his first professional performance aged just 15 he fell in love with playing live music and decided to make it his career.

He spent his formative years doing a lot of Rock ‘n’ Roll and Blues session work and has since then studied many different styles. With his own style that very few drummers can match, he has trained and performed with top session musicians on the circuit at all the top venues in his native Manchester and across the North West

LauraVocals

Laura joined the band as lead singer in 2011 and was the face of LeFunk! for its first two years. She has a powerful singing voice with a great range without which the band would not be able to perform the varied repertoire we offer.

Laura left the band in 2014 due to family commitments, but she still takes a lead singer role with us from time to time for guest spots or as a deputy.

Dean Bass, Vocals

Now the band's deputy bassist, Dean was co-founder of LeFunk! along with Dave C in 2010.

A bassist for around 30 years, mostly in song-writing and recording partnerships but also playing with the popular Birmingham-based 60s cover band Tobacco Road.

JadeVocals

Jade took over as lead singer in late 2013 bringing a wealth of experience and versatility to the band. With the arrival of her third child in 2016 and Laura-Jayne Hunter's introduction, Jade is now a superb deputy vocalist for the band and still makes regular appearances.

She Sung professionally in Ireland for over 8 years and performed for over 5000 people with Chris De Burg, Shane McGowan and Meatloaf at the INEC. She also gigged with popular Irish Indie band the Coronas. She's played more weddings, clubs and pubs than she can remember all over Ireland and North West England both as part of a function band and in tributes to Abba, Blondie, Dolly Parton and Cher.
