The Kerry Le Bern Duo
Everyone loves a saxophone and Kerry had exactly that in mind when she started a musical collaboration with saxophonist, David Funnell, forming the Kerry Le Bern Duo. The sound of the sax entwined with Kerry’s smoky sensual vocals make this a really special and versatile duo, one which performs right across the south coast to high acclaim. Whether you are looking for music to accompany your wedding guests as they sip champagne or if you want something to really get the party started, then Kerry and Dave will be delighted to bring their unique musical chemistry to your event.
Kerry and David pride themselves on having a wide repertoire which is both eclectic, quirky and fun. It is centred around the jazz genre with a vintage twist; that said, the duo are happy to accommodate most musical tastes. Kerry says’ we get involved in so many different events – one moment we might be performing at a delightful country show whilst the next we might be “ramping it up” at a private party for the guests to dance the night away. One thing is a common thread though, we get to meet the most lovely people in some of the most amazing venues so we feel very blessed at being able to embellish these occasions’.
A little information about David…. London-born David lives in Shoreham By Sea and plays tenor and alto saxophone (only a man would need 2 saxes!). He has performed in various bands in the south for over 20 years and, during that time, he has played most genres ie jazz, Motown, blues, soul, swing and even some gospel. When he is not playing sax he is a real sportsaholic, playing squash (as long as his knees hold out) and watching most available sport either live or on TV. Unfortunately this means that he frequently keeps Kerry “entertained” with the latest score updates or statistics about cricket and rugby. Joy! He became Kerry’s saxophonist following a chance meeting in Worthing where she promised him fame and fortune but he says “she’s yet to buy a round!”
Dear Kerry and Dave,
Thank you so much for supplying the music for our wedding/garden party. We had an amazing day with our family, the day after our son’s wedding, the sun shone – and to have such wonderful live music was very special.
Thanks from us both,
Jackie and Steve x
