AMV Live Music is an award winning live music agency based in Newcastle. With the largest selection of bands, musicians and artists for hire, we cater to a wide variety of events from weddings and private functions to corporate parties. Unlike other agencies, we offer a unique, supportive approach. We don't just hire you your band or artist and leave you to worry about the details. We manage your booking from the moment you book, right up until the day of your special event.
Not everyone has booked live music for an event before, or knows how to organise a musician or a band for a function. Which is why our online booking system makes the whole process simple and straightforward. Combined with our expert guidance, we carefully plan every part of your event.
From start times to set times, song requests to playlists, and payments to insurance certificates. We plan and organise meticulously, keeping you informed and up to date each step of the way. Our approach leaves no room for error on the day.
Whether it's a live band or a DJ, music is such a key part of setting the tone for your event. Our aim is to make the musical aspect of your event planning easy and stress free. Why wouldn’t you want to take the worry out of your special occasion?
Experience is Everything
As a team, we have over 30 years experience in the music industry both on and off stage. So you can rest assured that you're in safe hands. We understand how important entertainment is to an event. The right music can make all the difference.
We're passionate about providing professional, high quality entertainment to make your occasion more memorable. We take your music stresses away by making sure your entertainment fits seamlessly with your event and venue.
We only sign the best and we'll only recommend musicians who we can personally vouch for. It's our commitment to providing the highest quality live entertainment for hire. You can be guaranteed that every artist on our site has been vetted and approved by our team.
We understand that when it comes to events like weddings, it's the biggest day of your life and we won't let you down!
Michael Forster Managing Director
In 2010 Andrew and I set up AMV Live Music after working on various music projects together. I was born into this business so music has always been in my blood and for that I feel very privileged.
There is never any one day the same and I enjoy working with every single client on every single gig or event. Whether it is a small wedding or a large corporate, each one is equally important to me.
Andrew Garner Operations Director
As a fully fledged gigging musician for as long as I can remember it was a natural step to take my years of playing music live to set up AMV Live Music.
There is no better way to learn exactly how to achieve just what a client wants, whether they own a small bar or run a large brand, than to have had time under your belt actually playing in every type of venue imaginable.
Faye Shearer New Business
I am originally from the North West but fell in love with Newcastle after completing my Honours Business Degree at Newcastle Uni and chose to stay here.
I love to meet new clients and discover what they need for their event or venue. I am also the lead vocalist in Livewire and performing music live is my passion, which gives me a unique insight into both sides of the live music business.
Bess Cuddler in Chief
The unsung hero of the office is without a doubt Bess, the number one Cuddler in Chief.
Bess spreads the love all day throughout the Gosforth Studios and no one, whether you work here, are a client or an artist... gets out of AMV without a Bess cuddle!
