Loney – Party & Function Band | UK
Loney are a professional 5 piece band specialising in creating original interpretations of both classic and contemporary cover songs in a jazz, soul, Latin and funk style. For a more intimate affair, or to provide background music to an event, they can perform a warm, mellow acoustic set that would include a Spanish guitar and a Cajon (a Peruvian percussion box). Loney are a good choice if you are looking for corporate entertainment or wedding entertainment.
For a more upbeat event, the band can perform a livelier set with electric guitar and full drum kit, more suited to getting people up on the dance floor.
Loney are a band of professional musicians who have worked alongside well-established artists in the industry. They are highly competent and confident in playing and performance. Some of the acts whom they have shared the stage include Toots and the Maytals, Courtney Pine, Soweto Kinch, and De La Soul amongst others.
If the client provides a P.A and wants the band to perform with a full drum kit, then their requirements are: 16 channel desk, drum microphones, guitar microphone, 2 x D.I. boxes for keys and bass, 2 x vocal microphones for female vocalist and keyboard player and a 3 way monitor mix.
