Living the dream

We had an enquiry last week from an amateur musician who wanted to perform with one of our London based Dixie Bands. Whilst speaking with him, I learned that he had played the trumpet for many years and, although he loved his music, he no longer had time to play with a live band regularly.

I managed to arrange for him to play with the band during the summer and it occurred to me that hiring a band isn’t just about having them entertain you. It can be inclusive entertainment. So, if you’re a singer or a musician and really want to treat yourself to a special present, then what better way than to hire a live band and join in.

So, if performing with a great band is on your list of things to do before you die or, indeed, you just haven’t the time to express your creative side as a band member, then get in touch and will try and realise your dream. We really do make good things happen.

Music Maestro, please is one of the UK’s friendliest entertainment agencies and we love making great things happen for peoples’ events and it’s been a busy start to the year already with a host of happy clients featuring some of our amazing bands at their events.

In February, we sent the fantastic band The Highlights over to Cairo for Rana and Mohammad’s incredible wedding. The band enjoyed sightseeing once the set up and sound check had been completed and then, as expected, brought the evening to life with 2 x phenomenal party sets for guests to dance the night away to.

Channel 5 needed our military marching band for another of their forthcoming trailers and, as usual, the band looked amazing in their red and black uniforms. It’s been quite a busy year for them as they have just finished shooting a commercial for the Euro 2012 preparations for us this weekend and also visited a host of Sainsburys stores for thier Disney promotions over the last few days. Fortunately, the guys are used to parading around all over the UK and abroad so they are all fit and ready for their next performances at an event near you.

We’ve added lots more artists to the band portfolio this year. including a London ceilidh band, one of the best wedding bands in Surrey, an interesting Bollywood Jazz Band, the unique Eighties tribute band – Rubix and many others. Check these and many other great live bands and singers on the website.
