Company description

LeFunk! is a classic dancefloor covers band formed in 2010 in Manchester. 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.

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!

We 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.

Can also provide DJ service, additional lighting and a radio microphone connected to the PA for you to make speeches and announcements. Once booked we'll build your ideal DJ playlists in advance, or with immediate access to thousands of hits from the last 6 decades, we can also satisfy the vast majority of music requests on the day.

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

For additional peace of mind, we 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 this is provided.

LeFunk! will work with you to ensure we fit in to, 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.
