About

Price from £650

LeFunk! is a funk, disco, soul, motown and pop covers band with Acoustic duo and DJ Service options formed in 2010 in the North West UK, with the experience of playing hundreds of weddings, conferences, balls, birthdays.If you are looking to bring a fun, party atmosphere to an event, be it a wedding, birthday, festival or conference, then LeFunk! could be the perfect choice.

Line-ups
The band is available in three formats, the 5 piece, 4 piece or a compact trio, making LeFunk! the perfect choice for venue sizes ranging from the corner of a bar to large hotels and concert halls!

They can also provide additional live classical piano, classical guitar or solo vocal performances as background music during the earlier phases of an event, and an acoustic duo option.

One Stop Solution for All Music Required for your Party
The band normally provides a one stop - live band, recorded music and PA solution for your entire event, with DJ service, lighting and a radio microphone connected to the PA for you to make speeches and announcements. Once booked they'll do their best to build your ideal playlists in advance, and with immediate access to thousands of hits from the last 6 decades, they can also satisfy the vast majority of music requests on the day.

First Dance
If you have a special song that you'd like to be played live but isn't in the band's repertoire they will learn and play an additional song of your choice. This could for instance be a ballad for the ‘first dance’ at a wedding, or just another dance floor classic.

Peace of Mind
For additional peace of mind, they have deputy musicians who rehearse with the band and can usually cover for last minute emergencies and have Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million. Many venues are now insisting that the latter is provided.

LeFunk! will work with you to ensure they compliment, rather than dictate, the flow of your event. Set lengths can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, raffle results and speeches. Clothing can be funky or formal. Arrival and set up times can usually be arranged to minimise disruption to guests.
