  • Hi Faye!

    Hope you¹re well. Can I just say again how great you guys were at our
    wedding! You keep the dance floor full all night and capped the perfect
    day for us.

    I was wondering if you still had a record of the set list you played? I¹d
    love a copy to keep as a reminder if you do!

    All the best

    Adam (& Sophie) Griffin-Jones

    Adam & Sophie Griffin-Jones - Ellingham Hall - 5th May 2018

  • Hi Jess!

    We’d just like to thank you and tell you how amazing you were at Beamish on Saturday!! Although I was so nervous I didn’t hear a thing walking down that aisle (which is probably a good thing because I call my eyes out at Because You Loved Me!) I heard all the video play backs, and heard you during our photos and it was perfect!

    Thank you for everything!

    Elisha & Jordan Shean - Beamish Hall - 9th June 2018

  • Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help on the lead up to our big day and for the day itself. The harp sounded beautiful in the chapel and we had great comments from guests. Thanks again!

    Tiffany and Graeme

  • Christine, just want to thank you so much for playing at our wedding yesterday and doing such a wonderful job. We absolutely loved you playing, it sounded so nice and everyone commented on how well you played and how lovely it sounded. Rhian was really chuffed with it so thank you so much.

    Stuart and Rhian

  • We would like to say a big thank you for playing the harp so beautifully at our recent wedding. The sound of your harp was absolutely wonderful to hear and relaxed both our guests and indeed Jonathan and myself. You are clearly a gifted individual and it was such a joy and pleasure to have you perform for us. Thank you also for your input and help with our music choices which was much appreciated. We were so pleased that you were able to perform for the drinks reception, as well as the ceremony and felt it really created a superb and unique ambience for all our guests to enjoy. Thank you so much for being part of our special day and for making it extra special too.

    Julie and John

  • Choosing AMV Live Music and Hattie was one of our first and easiest decisions in our wedding planning after seeing Hattie perform at a Le Petit Chateau open day.

    On the day her rendition of Malibu by Miley Cyrus was beautiful and now every time I hear it it takes me back to walking in. She was so lovely when we spoke to her on the day and melted into the background effortlessly really complimenting the relaxed and natural feel we wanted for the wedding. All of my guests commented on how talented she was and loved her song choices!

    Katherine & Jordan Collins - Le Petit Chateau - 3rd April 2018

  • We wanted to say how absolutely blown away we were by your performance at our wedding at the Coachhouse on Saturday 28th April. There wasn’t a single guest who didn’t comment on your performance, even spouting the #bestbandever hashtag from anyone who posted online!

    It was so important that everyone was able to enjoy themselves – and the dancefloor was always full, everyone danced and sang the night away!

    Jenna & Ben Cummings - The Coachhouse at Middleton Lodge - 28th April 2018

  • Please pass on our huge thanks to Redwings – everyone absolutely loved them and they really helped to make the wedding absolutely perfect. They were amazing.

    Suzanne & Matthew Gould - Healey Barn - 15th April 2018

  • We would just like to say how happy we were that we picked Redwings for our wedding. They were absolutely fantastic and created a great atmosphere for the evening. Everyone loved them and we had loads of our guests asking who they were.Thank you also to AMV who made the process very easy from start to finish.

    Jess & Chris Bulman - Derwant Manor - 7th April 2018

  • Livewire were absolutely fantastic. If you could pass on our thanks to Faye and all the band we’d be really grateful. They really got the party going and made our night very special. All our guests were absolutely blown away by Faye’s voice – she definitely had a bit of a fan club!

    We had actually seen the band perform at our friends’ wedding a few years ago, and we’ll definitely recommend them to others in the future who might be looking for a wedding band. Absolutely worth it!

    Rob & Zoe Walker - Wylam Brewery - 24th March 2018

  • John was amazing! Everyone commented on how talented he was. He made the drinks reception fantastic as his playing was flawless. Couldn’t recommend him enough!
    Thank you John, you made our day

    Jane & Scott Coates - Brinkburn Priory - 7th April 2018

  • Hi Mick,

    We were hoping you could pass on a big thank you to Union St for their performance at our wedding on Saturday.

    We absolutely loved them and they really hit the right note! Especially once everyone had got their drinks from the bar and joined us on the dance floor!

    Have a great Christmas and a happy New Year,

    John and Louise

    John & Louise Booth - Brancepeth Castle - 16th December 2017

  • We just wanted to drop a quick email to say thanks to John Gatenby for doing our acoustic set for our wedding day on Sat 2 December at Wylam Brewery. If you could pass on our regards, that would be great.

    We got great feedback from our guests for John who was excellent!

    Mark & Sara Wood - Wylam Brewery - 2nd December 2017

  • 110% recommend this AMAZING band, 5 stars just isn't enough. We hired them for our wedding on 7th May 2017 & they very kindly agreed to travel to Armathwaite Hall in the Lake District & wow, what a performance they put on. The dance floor was jam packed from start to finish & our guests, even the kids, didn't want the party to end, singing 'we don't care what time it is coz we're not going home'. Everyone has told us how much fun they had & its thanks to Switch for keeping us entertained. Thanks a million, Alex & Ben Irving xx

    Alex & Ben Irving – Armathwaite Hall – 7th May 2017

  • My wife Hannah and I and all of our guests were lucky to be joined by Switch on Friday 14th July 2017 at The Maynard Hotel, Grindleford, Derbyshire. Our day had already been amazing yet Switch's contribution turned it into an awesome night. They played our first dance song (Ho Hey- The Lumineers which was perfect..a shame I let it down with my terrible dancing...I knew i should have practiced!)

    They were Friendly & approachable, full of charisma and had great stage presence. Sheridan is a fantastic lead singer and all other members of the group were equally fantastic playing their instrument. (Loved the Sax! ) Very professional, superb set list and especially loved the medleys.. The dance floor was bouncing throughout..people were dancing that never, ever, ever, dance so credit to Switch for that little miracle. Throughout the night (and still now) I had people asking me who the band were with numerous flattering reviews. It was clear that we and others did not want the night to end...shouts of "more" were met with other songs but sadly it had to end. If you are considering a band for any occasion we cannot recommend these guys enough. They are a 'Must!'

    Jamie Tait – Maynard Hotel, Derbyshire – 14th July 2017

  • We asked Switch to be our wedding band at Capheaton Hall on 15 July 2017 and they did not disappoint! They arrived early so we could use their equipment for the wedding speeches. They then learnt a new song so they could perform it live for our first dance. They kept the dance floor packed all night with a great mix of music from a number of eras to suit all tastes. Lively, energetic, talented and highly entertaining; I'd recommend Switch to anyone as the perfect band for any occasion (the number of people who commented how good you were was fantastic). Thanks so much for making our wedding party such a memorable occasion. Rob and Fiona

    Rob Philips – Capheaton Hall – 15th July 2017

  • Switch performed at our wedding back in August. They had an awesome set list which got all of our guests up and dancing. The band had such a fun vibe and everyone commented on how brilliant they were! Would highly recommend!!

    Amie Roberts – Newton Hall – 10th August 2017

  • Switch played at our wedding and the dance floor was packed all night! Everyone said how good you are! Would highly recommend. Professional throughout and a brilliant band

    Terri Gardner – Horton Grange – 29th September 2017

  • Hi Sheridan, I just wanted to drop you an email to say an enormous thank you for Saturday night!!! You all sounded awesome and our guests kept telling us how brilliant you were. We had the most amazing weekend and Switch definitely played a big part in that so THANK you! Laura & Ben x

    Laura Brocklehurst – Ellingham Hall – 18th November 2017

  • "Fee Fee and the Sentiments played at our wedding yesterday and I felt compelled to leave a review straight away. They were wonderful from the moment we booked them. From their communication with us to the incredible sets that they played. They have a unique and wonderful sound and had everyone up and dancing.Thank you so much."

    Lucy and Iain - Woodhill Hall, Otterburn - 5th August 2017

  • "Unbelievable entertainment, you guys were amazing at our wedding. Thank you!"

    Duane Fowler - Private Wedding venue - 2017

  • We booked Jessica Avison to sing at our wedding on the 6th of October at Newton Hall.
    I can not put into words how amazing Jess was she made our day so special her voice is one of a kind, she sang tale as old as time from beauty and the beast when my bride walked down the aisle she had me holding back the tears it was that beautiful.
    If you are thinking of booking jess to sing at your wedding go for it you will not regret it.

    Daniel and Tanya Lovatt - Newton Hall - 6th October 2017

  • "They made the day perfect! Would highly recommend"

    It couldn't have been better!!

    Kristin and Terje Andersen - The Belsfield Hotel - 30th September 2017

  • Sorry for the delay but just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to you and the band for being so wonderful at our wedding! Having seen you a few times before we knew you were fab anyway, but so many guests have commented also!

    Keep doing what you're doing - you make a wonderful band and know how to put on a fantastic performance!

    Rachel and Richard Savage - Healey Barn - 23rd September 2017

  • Myself and Dan just wanted to drop both yourselves and Groove Central Station a note to say a massive "thank you" for their sets at our wedding at The Biscuit Factory on Saturday.

    Both ourselves and our guests absolutely loved the band and they definitely made the night amazing! The fact my feet are still sore today is testament to how much I personally enjoyed them! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as well as AMV to anyone planning an event.

    Lauren and Dan Caskey - The Biscuit Factory - 2nd September 2017

  • Hi Faye,
    Lucy and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for what can only be described as an amazing performance from Livewire on our wedding day! All the way from kicking off straight after the first dance (everyone storming the dance floor was exactly what we'd hoped for!) to the very end. You and the band were brilliant and it was the perfect party, we were so happy we picked you. Everyone has commented on how good the music was, it was most of our guests' favourite part of the day.
    Thanks again!
    Ruari

    Lucy & Ruari Phillips - Wylam Brewery - 19th August 2017

    Laura and Chris Neasham - Ellingham Hall - 20th August 2017

  • Just a quick email as I would like to express my thanks to AMV live music for providing the entertainment for our wedding. Using AMV has been seamless, with professional and helpful advice from your team all along the way. We could not recommend this service enough!

    Laura and Chris Neasham - Ellingham Hall - 20th August 2017

  • Hi, just a quick message to say a massive thanks to The BlueHouse Band who were fantastic at our wedding at As You Like It on 6th August. I knew the band would be good but we were blown away by how many hits they played and they made the wedding day amazing! The dance floor was full all night and everyone said they loved the band. They were really good to let me use the equipment and sing a song so a massive thanks to Andy. We hope to see the band again sometime in the near future. From The Bateys

    Rachael and Darren Batey - As You Like It - 6th August 2017

  • We just wanted to let you know how amazing Gotcha were at our wedding at As You Like It on Sunday. They got everyone up dancing and were perfect for the atmosphere we wanted - and so talented too. We've had so many positive comments about them and will definitely be recommending them to anyone who is looking for a band for an event

    Thanks for all of your help with everything

    Louise & Simon Gray - As You Like It - 27th August 2017

  • Just wanted to say that Joe was absolutely fantastic at our wedding. The wife left it to me to sort the music and he went down extremely well! Our guests commented on his talent too.

    Chris & Sarah Snowdon - Doxford Barns - 6th August 2017

  • Hi Mick,

    Please would you be able to pass on our thanks to John for playing at our wedding recently at the Inn on the Lake. He was absolutely fantastic and many of our guests commented on how great he was.

    He really made our day extra special! I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

    Also thanks very much to yourself and Faye for helping us to source such a fab artist. The process was smooth from start to finish.

    Many thanks again 

    Emma & Steven

    Emma & Steven Weir - Inn On The Lake - 3rd August 2017

  • Hi Mick.

    I booked House of Sax for our wedding on Saturday and I'm so pleased I did! They were absolutely incredible. From the moment the music started I knew it was going to be a great night and it certainly was.

    It's the first wedding I have ever witnessed the guests dancing at 7pm!! The atmosphere was unreal and the effect of the bongos and sax made it feel as though we were all in Ibiza- our favourite place! The guys are absolutely brilliant, even allowing my new hubby to have a go on the bongos and being very patient with a very drunk best man!

    The whole place was bouncing all night and I never wanted to leave the dance floor. I especially didn't want the night to end and neither did the guests.

    I honestly couldn't recommend House of Sax enough! I would love to have another occasion where I could book them again. Maybe a first year anniversary party would be an excellent idea.

    Thanks guys. You were just the best and helped to make our day unforgettable. Not only for us but for all our guests who absolutely loved it.

    Stacey and Ryan xx

    Stacey and Ryan Parker - Alnwick Treehouse - 5th August 2017

    Kind regards

    Hannah & Dom Smith - Hoults Yard - 29th July 2017

  • Having stumbled across Faye Shearer singing in a bar in Newcastle on our engagement weekend we knew she had to sing at our wedding. The talent was incredible!

    Thank you so much for providing the beautiful Faye Shearer Duo for our wedding at Hazlewood castle. You were both so professional and the guests said how amazing you both were at the wedding.

    Me and Hesh are just gutted we didn't get to hear more as we were whisked away for photographs.

    I have highly recommended you to any family or friends who are in the stages of planning a wedding and your conduct throughout has been very professional.

    We can't thank you enough.

    I would just like to thank you for providing Faye Shearer at our wedding on Saturday.

    They did a great job learning our first dance song and played a fantastic set on the night, exactly what we wanted.

    They had everyone on the dance floor all night and we didn't want the night to end.

    Kris & Hannah Harvey - 25th November 2016 - Le Petit Chateau

  • Jess Avison played for us during the wedding ceremony and drinks reception and she was absolutely perfect and did an incredible job.

    Jess played Hannah down the aisle to our chosen song which was beautiful and added a really personal touch to the day.

    We couldn't have asked for any more from Jess she was brilliant.

    Kris & Hannah Harvey - 25th November 2016 - Le Petit Chateau

  • Hi Mick

    I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a massive THANK YOU!

    We absolutely loved our DJ, Johnny the Sax player and the percussionist (who even let my little nephew have a go).

    So many of our wedding guests commented on what an amazing night they had and obviously credit for that should go to them. They played all the songs we asked for and then chose some brilliant floor fillers of their own, everyone danced all night.

    The DJ came and chatted to us to make sure we were happy, which was a really nice touch. We were so impressed at how friendly and professional they were and can't thank you all enough. WHAT A NIGHT!

  • Hi Mick.

    I just wanted to let you know how great Richard was at our wedding at Newton Hall on the 27th October 2016. We had never met him prior to our wedding day and he was amazing! Lots of our guests commented on how great he was and how easy he was to talk to during sets.

    He created a great atmosphere and even had our guests up dancing during his songs. Just wanted to pass on the comments and commend AMV music for making our booking experience a positive one.

    We will definitely be recommending the company to others.

    Kind Regards,

  • Dear Faye and Mick

    Sorry it's taken us a little while to get round to sending this email.

    We both wanted to let you know how impressed we and all the guests at our wedding were with Boys of Brass.

    They were great, very accommodating, even letting us come along to a rehearsal so Kelly's brother could practice a piece with them for the ceremony. They were fantastic performers and extremely professional during the day.

    Faye - thank you for all your help in choosing the music, being patient and full of ideas and enthusiasm despite all our questions! The music was really important to us and the fact that it was so incredible made our day even more special.

    Thanks again

  • Dear Faye and Mick

    Sorry it's taken us a little while to get round to sending this email.

    We both wanted to let you know how impressed we and all the guests at our wedding were with Levi and the House of Sax experience.

    Levi was fantastic to deal with, great to talk through how we wanted the day to run before the wedding, very flexible and keen to help out including playing an awesome background set list during the wedding breakfast.

    As a band in the evening they were amazing, Levi took on board our ideas and mixed them in to the bands performance which had everyone going crazy on the dance floor through the evening.

    We have lost count of the number of people who have mentioned the drums, sax and Tesni's vocals to us. It was a fantastic party and we can't recommend them highly enough.

    Faye - thank you for all your help in choosing the music, being patient and full of ideas and enthusiasm despite all our questions!

    The music was really important to us and the fact that it was so incredible made our day even more special.

  • Hi Jess,

    So sorry this is such a late message, it's been such a whirlwind since our wedding and we have just got back from our mini-moon this weekend.

    We want to say a HUGE thank you to you for performing for our guests on our wedding day, you were amazing!!

    We had so many lovely comments about how great you were and how beautiful your voice is. You created such a lovely atmosphere to the whole day.

    You really are amazing at what you do and we're so glad we chose you for our big day.
    (Sorry we didn't get to say bye to you!!)
    Thanks so much again!

  • Hi Mick,

    I just wanted to send an email to say a huge thank you for organising The Mollies to play at our wedding on Saturday at As You Like It.

    Ashleigh and the band were amazing, in terms of their talent and their personalities! Ashleigh's rendition of Crystal, our song, was beautiful and just what we wanted.

    All of our guests were really impressed with their sets and each song just got better and better to the point of a room-wide call from everyone dancing for them to play more.

    The guitarist's solo really impressed our more musically talented friends and he was also very sweet about our theme as it turned out he was a Lord of the Rings fan too!

    They really made our day and I can't thank them enough, especially as Ashleigh stayed right until the end to play out last song and cheer for us.

    Please pass on big hugs and love from us.

    Mr & Mrs Spoors(!)
    Xx

  • Hi Mick

    I've been meaning to get in touch for a while to pass on my thanks to John for the superb job he did at our wedding.

    The ceremony music was beautiful and he was brilliant at moving around the venue when the weather changed.

    His playing was fantastic and we were so glad we booked him, it made all of the difference to how our day felt.

    Please would you pass on my thanks.

    Sorry I haven't been in touch since our wedding but I just wanted to say thank you for all you did for us regarding our music for our wedding drinks reception. We had an amazing day and Unplugged were brilliant, they went down really well with everyone.

    My biggest regret of the wedding day was not getting to see their full set list as we had to go and get photo's done but we where lucky enough to catch the first half and the final song which was brilliant.

    You and Faye have been brilliant to deal with from the start and glad we chose yourselves, and Unplugged for the music for our wedding day.

    Cheers

    Paul & Leah

    Just a quick email to say thank you very much for an extremely good DJ and disco on Saturday for my daughter's evening wedding reception in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall.

    Phil was the perfect DJ – please pass on our grateful thanks. His announcements at the caking cutting/bride and groom dance/buffet opening were absolutely brilliant.

    I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending AMV Live Music to anyone.

    Thank you so much.

    On behalf of the residents and staff of St Mary Magdalene & Holy Jesus Trust, I would be grateful if you would pass on our thanks to the Strictly Smokin' Little Big Band for their attendance and performance at our Summer Event last Thursday.

    Our event was held in a marquee and the performance and sound were excellent. The interaction with our residents was most appreciated. The songs played brought back many memories for our residents and several recounted stories of past times when they enjoyed such sounds in their early years.

    Since the event, a number of residents have thanked us for a lovely day.

    Once again, many thanks.

    Kind Regards

  • I would just like to take a moment to praise Faye for adding such a beautiful, unique and sophisticated touch to our day. All of our guests were full of praise and added that it was a breath of fresh air to have someone singing while they arrived and as I walked down the aisle and we were married as well as at our drinks reception after. Faye could not have been more attentive and helpful in the lead up to our wedding and she sang each and every one of the songs we requested as well as a beautiful rendition of the song I had chosen to walk down the aisle to. She was so professional throughout the full day, sang exactly what we wanted how we wanted and more. Although I didn't get to see much of her set, when I did get a second to watch her I was just so glad we chose to have a singer at our daytime and that we chose her. Absolutely outstanding, would definitely recommend to others. Stunning!!

  • Hi Faye,

    We just wanted to say a huge thanks to yourself and the band for
    last Saturday.

    We honestly loved every minute but looking back,
    especially on the evening, the dance floor was going crazy whilst you
    guys were playing.

    I hadn't been to a wedding like that before, all
    credit to you guys! The guests have all been very complimentary also.

    Hope you all enjoyed it and didn't get any hassle !

    Thanks again,

  • Hi Mick,

    I'd just like to thank you for the fantastic service we received from AMV. The process of booking the band was simple and all our requests were met enthusiastically.

    A huge thank you to the band the Redwings who were incredible on the night. We liked their version of our specially requested first dance song, as much, if not better, than the original.

    Our families are normally shy when it comes to the dance floor, but the Redwings had everyone up dancing and really got the crowd involved in their set. We had lots of compliments on our choice of the band and we couldn't recommend them enough. Very professional. Very polite. They made our special day that little bit more special.

    Thanks again for everything!

  • Hi Mick

    I just wanted to give a review of Livewire who played at our wedding last week at Brinkburn Priory.

    The band and Faye were amazing on the night, the songs they played were fantastic and everyone was up dancing from start to finish!

    They played our first dance, a song we had asked them to play, which made it really personal to us.

    Faye was a brilliant support throughout the process of booking the band and Andy Usher.

    She provided advice on song choices to set the mood and was always available. I would not hesitate to recommend Livewire and AMV to anyone for a wedding or party!

    Thanks again

  • We just wanted to thank you for your performance on Friday.

    I think you made the ceremony and we couldn't have asked for a better singer/guitar player.

    Your rendition of 'Cold Desert' was perfect as our 'walk down the aisle song'.

    I think you were probably responsible for most of the tears!

  • Hi mick

    I just wanted to drop you an email about our wedding and our experience with Faye Shearer.

    Last month we had the greatest day of our lives as we had the most amazing wedding. We had a bit of a challenge from the outset finding a singer as everyone we seemed to find and booked cancelled on us so we were getting a little sick.

    We came to an event at ‘As you like it’ to see Faye Shearer and straight away we thought she was amazing and we booked her instantly.

    Even the booking process was simple and professional, which we hadn’t been used too with the other people we initially approached.

    Faye was great to talk to in the run up to the wedding and exactly what we wanted. We discussed different songs and ideas, she even helped source the backing track for my dad who did a song at the wedding.

    At the wedding itself our guests were full of praise for her amazing talent, the dance floor was never empty. Faye also sang our wedding song which was breath-taking and is a memory that will stay with us forever. I can’t praise Faye enough and look forward to seeing her at other events in the future.

    Many thanks

    It snowed all through the night before and we really appreciated Faye's efforts to get to our remote venue.

    She was very professional and set up all her equipment effortlessly.

    We had chosen our preferred songs from her extensive playlist, but Faye was more than happy to learn new songs if necessary.

    Her singing throughout the day was fantastic, and a lot of our guests commented on how beautiful she looked and sounded.

    Faye was very friendly and really added to our special day.

    We would not hesitate to recommend Faye!

  • Hi Mick, I hope you are well.

    I just wanted to send a huge thank you to yourself, Jess, the DJ and the team at AMV!

    Your customer service from the very beginning has been second to none and Jess and the DJ were absolutely fantastic!!!

    Jess created the perfect atmosphere throughout the ceremony, reception and meal and everyone commented on how fab she was. She was professional and just perfect.

    The DJ created a club like atmosphere on the night time and played all the songs we wanted and some of his own which went down great. Everyone commented on how the cool the music was and the sets he was playing were amazing!!!! I think everyone was on the dance floor and it wasn’t wedding like at all which is of course what we were aiming for. One guest did try their hardest to get ‘Come on Eileen’ played but they weren’t successful ha-ha!!

    I have recommended you guys to a few of my friends who have weddings coming up as I really can’t praise you enough.

    Best wishes and thank you for all of your help

    I would like pass on my thanks to Redwings for their performance last Saturday 25th April at our wedding.

    They turned up bang on time, set up really quickly and were really professional and friendly.

    They absolutely nailed our first dance song which we specially requested they play and they stuck with the shy crowd until they eventually let loose.

    Everybody absolutely loved them and were really impressed, as was I with the service from AMV throughout setting this up.

    It's been very professional and everyone I've spoken to at AMV, yourself and Faye etc have been very helpful.

    Excellent setup!

  • Mick & Faye,

    Just a quick note to say thank you so much for helping organise the band for our wedding.

    Everybody, without fail, thought that the J’Avisons were absolutely FANTASTIC.

    They did such a wonderful spin on our first dance song that we were inundated with questions about the song from our guests. In addition, Jess and the boys were tight, had the acoustics just right and were an absolute pleasure. Jess, in particular, was really lovely to deal with. Please please pass on our best to her and thank her for everything.

    Anyway we’ve recommended the band to two sets of friends and passed on your details to some others.

    Hopefully you get some more bookings.

    Thanks again for all your help and for answering so many of our questions.

    You offer a brilliant service and the whole thing was just terrific.

    All the best,

    Sorry for the delay it's been a busy couple of months, but better late than never!

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Livewire for playing at our wedding at Newton Hall in August.

    They were absolutely fantastic and I've never danced so much! All of the guests commented on how brilliant they were and the highlight of everyone's night was the two renditions of Rolling On The River when the dance floor was packed full with my cousin leading a zumba line dance!

    Amazing day and night and the most fantastic band.

    Thanks also to Mick and AMV who made the booking process so easy.

    Sorry for the delay its been a busy couple of months, but better late than never!

    Thanks also to The Armstrong Quartet who played during our wedding ceremony.

    We had a catholic mass and the Quartet were happy to learn our requested hymns. They played beautifully throughout the ceremony and entertained our guests before the mass while I was fashionably late getting from Newcastle to Alnwick!

    We didn't get chance to thank them in person so apologies for the delay. Thanks again for playing such captivating music, it was just as we had imagined for our special day.

  • Just want to say an unbelievable thank you for Jess on Saturday
    performing at our wedding at Matfen Hall.

    Ourselves and our guests were truly taken aback by her talent.

    I didn't get chance to speak to her myself I was permanently needed for pictures and by the venue but she was so professional and outstanding in her performance some of our guests
    actually thought it was a cd playing!

    Thank you again for AMV's great service and providing us with an amazing talent such as Jess.

  • Hi Mick,

    Please pass on our thanks to the DJ as we never got the chance to thank him on the night but he did a fantastic job and we received a lot of comments on how good the music was.

    There wasn't a single moment where less than 10 people were on the dancefloor!

    Thanks again.

    Steve and Stacey Martin - Newton Hall - 31st October 2015

  • Hi I just want to leave a big thank you message for Faye Shearer and her band! They performed at my wedding on 12/05/16 and she was fantastic and made such a fantastic atmosphere! The guests loved her and most importantly she was brilliant with my 9 year old niece who has severe medical problems, she let her join in and danced with her! Thank you again and we will certainly be recommending you to everyone!

  • Hi Mick,

    Just wanted to say thank you to our wedding DJ. We had a fantastic day and the disco finished it off nicely! The DJ was brilliant, the music was great all night.

    Loads of our guests have commented on the atmosphere and the music and how much they enjoyed it.

    We're very happy with the overall experience from my initial inquiry 1 year ago, to the actual event.

    Many thanks once again and please be assured we would highly recommend your services!

    Tracey & John Harkins - Mansion House, Jesmond - 20th August 2016

  • Hi Mick,

    Just a few words to say thank you for the excellent service. The Fontains arrived on time (slightly early actually!) and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They set up with a minimum of fuss and were ready to start the evening off as requested at 7. Some of our guests were a little late in arriving and the band did everything to accommodate a change in running times and were very flexible, polite and approachable. Everything we had requested was provided and the track choice for the DJ sets was excellent given that we had only provided guidelines as to the sort of music we preferred.

    When it came to the live music, the band were everything we had hoped for. They gave an entertaining, energetic performance and every guest we have spoken to has said what a great day they had followed by "and the band were fantastic!"

    So thank you for helping to make our day such a memorable and enjoyable one. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend AMV and The Fontains in particular to anyone seeking a band for their wedding.

    Gary and Miriam Sigsworth - The Fontains - Wynyard Golf Club 18th May

  • Dani and I are back from honeymoon now and we would like to say a big thank you for helping make our wedding day the best day the most amazing day!

    Everybody was raving about the band and it really was the icing on the cake!

    Alex and Danielle Margo - Newton Hall - 15th August 2014

  • We booked the band Switch for our evening wedding party.

    The band were absolutely amazing and had people dancing from start to finish. Many people at the wedding asked about the band and the venue wanted their details as they thought they were so good.

    Prior to the night Sheridan was very helpful and was happy to take our requests of songs and was very easily contactable.

    All in all the band were fantastic and would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and entertaining band.

    Thanks again!

    Ashton Sands - Nancy Bordellos - 27th December 2014

  • Grace Under Pressure are an absolutely amazing wedding band and I would highly recommend them!

    The dance floor was full from start to finish and everybody commented on how fab they were!

    They were so flexible to anything we asked for and did a fantastic job of getting everybody up and keeping them there all night!

    You can see from the photos the amazing time everybody had.

    Thanks again for everything Grace Under Pressure - you truly made our day!

    Caroline and Steve Cunningham - Silverholme Manor, Graythwaite - 23rd August 2014

  • “Just a short note of thanks and congratulations regarding my dealings with yourself and the band for the function involving the armed forces. As you are aware these guys have been stationed in Iraq for 10 months and over, therefore the importance of everything being alright on the night could not be more paramount. The feedback received from the Commanding Officer has been very positive, we have been informed by all parties concerned that the band were nothing short of outstanding and we have been asked to rebook for the summer...Once again thank you all.”

    Iain Robinson - Millennium Events

  • Hi John,

    Thanks for much for playing at our wedding, and apologies it has taken so long to respond, I have only just come back to work.

    I am so grateful for your time on the day and everyone commented on how good you were. I will certainly recommend you onto my other friends who are getting married.

    I am just gutted I didn't get to see you play much as I was taken away with photos etc.

    Thanks again

Having been to other weddings and heard Bay6 we knew we wanted to book them for our big day, so to avoid disappointment we did it as soon as we had set the date!

They covered such a diverse range of songs to suit everybody. Bay6 managed to get everybody on their feet! We have seen them play on a number of occasions and we are never left disappointed! Bay6 are a group of talented guys who have such a professional sound.”

    Mr & Mrs R Hanson - Newcastle

  • Just wanted to send you a quick email whilst we are waiting at the airport to go on our honeymoon!

    Our wedding at High House Farm Brewery was made all the more amazing by you guys playing at our evening reception.

    You managed to squeeze yourselves and equipment into a limited space without compromising on the excellent sound or music you played.

    The song selection was awesome and catered for everyone's needs, including my Grandad's last song request of "my way" for him to sing along to (tears a plenty).

    Thanks again would definitely recommend Gotcha band !

  • Hi Mick,

    I would like to say how good the redwings were at the wedding, smashing group of lads and top musicians.

    It's something that a lot the guests commented on (which I'm chuffed with as this was one of my responsibilities).

    They were fantastic and the lead vocalists voice was unreal.

    Thanks for all your work on this Mick, I will certainly be recommending AMV and Redwings to others.

    Ryan Hutchcraft - Eshott Hall - 29th December 2014

  • I would like to thank you very much for a great evening of entertainment at our dinner dance. The band created a great atmosphere with the perfect play list.

  • Hi Mick,

    Just wanted to tell you that the Armstrong Quartet were absolutely brilliant.

    They sounded beautiful and added to the day, plus everyone commented how lovely they were and how they really made the day.

    You never know how things will turn out when booking online, however I could not have asked for more.

    I would definitely recommend these guys - amazing!

    Thank you

  • Just a quick message to say thanks; It was a delight having Grand Central at the wedding, they were fantastic, really helpful and professional, and everyone absolutely loved them! And their version of 5 years time was spot on! So please pass on our thanks to them too. Is there anyway we can follow them - one of the guys mentioned they do a lot of gigs in Jesmond and we'd love to see them again!
    Thanks again

  • Andy,

    Just a quick one to say thank you for yesterday! You were amazing and our guests were raving about you! I guess the chants of "we want more" told you that though. Faye is truly special as well and I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed with the new line up! My only complaint is that you're not on for longer! It went far too quick!!

    An amazing day was topped off by an amazing band,

    Thanks again,

    Danielle Pigott - Livewire - Doxford Hall, 5th July 2014

  • Livewire performed at our wedding evening on Saturday 28th June 2014 at The Alnwick Gardens in Northumberland and what can I say.....AMAZING!!!!

    From the get go they had everyone on their feet dancing. All the members of the band were outstanding and lead singer Faye has the most incredible voice.

    Anyone can plan the perfect wedding or have the most amazing venue but it's all about the atmosphere and making sure everyone enjoys themselves and you can't plan that......but Livewire helped us achieve that by making the atmosphere ELECTRIC everyone left with smiles on their faces and didn't want the night to end.

    Thankyou Livewire you are most highly recommend xxx

    Kellie and Jamie Redman - Alnwick Gardens - 28th June 2014

  • I booked Livewire through AMV Live Music for my mum’s 60th and I am so glad I did, they absolutely made the party, they had all ages up and dancing and really got the party going.

    My mum loves Lionel Richie and they managed to play and dedicate to her a Lionel song off the cuff without rehearsing it which by far was her best part of the day.

    Each person at the party commented on how great they were and they were all right, Karen is an amazing singer and the band was fantastic. All in all a great day plus the weather held out for us to.

    Thanks again to Mick and Livewire for making this a party to remember.

    I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you very very much for sorting out Bonnie Shaw for us in such a short period of time, I had literally looked high and low for a very good singer but also at a good price, and yours was the only company where I found this.

    Bonnie was absolutely amazing, everyone and I mean everyone commented on how fantastic she was, how subtle she was, and how perfect her voice was, she sung the 2 extra songs that we had asked for also, and they were both sung perfectly.

    Once again thank you to both yourself and Bonnie for making this such an easy enjoyable process, and for finding us an amazing singer.

    Many thanks to you for all your help with assisting me to organise exactly what I was looking for on the day. And of course, to Harry for the super music.

    It was all greatly appreciated.

  • Charlie and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Livewire for playing at our wedding at Kirkley Hall on June 21st and for all of AMV's help in the run up to the day.

    Livewire were sensational! We have received so many comments from guests saying how amazing the band were, and it’s no surprise you received chants of we want more at the end of the evening Andy!

    The dance floor was full from start to finish and we loved seeing all our guests up dancing and having a great time. It made it such a special and memorable evening.

    We’d thoroughly recommend booking Livewire for any wedding or event!

    Thank you again to all the band. Obviously we live in London but we’re already following your updates on Facebook and hope to be able to make it to one of your upcoming gigs when we’re back sometime soon!

    They kindly learnt and rehearsed my entrance song which they performed amazingly it added such a personal touch to the ceremony.

    The baby grand was a huge success and really looked well in the store, I think we should have one there all the time!

    Well done for not only doing a great job organising the great musician’s, but just for turning up; it’s not every night you celebrate your 25th Anniversary in a snow storm!

  • I was at the Hilton Hotel at Newcastle Airport last night for the first time with my partner and we had the privilege to hear the musician named Ken Mercer - I rang the hotel today to find out if he was a resident artist at the hotel and was informed to contact you - HE WAS AMAZING PURE TALENT- please let me know if he is at the Hilton each week - LOVED his music and his voice. Would love to see him regularly and want to return with friends please can you tell me if he is playing at the Hilton again I hope so!! Absolutely brilliant made our night!”

  • I wanted to make sure I passed on my absolute gratitude to the Fontains who played at our wedding at Langley Castle in June. They were absolutely brilliant. Everyone commented on how good they were and played just the right mix of music to get everyone up on the dance floor.

    We really appreciate them playing and thank you for suggesting them, we could not have asked for a better band. They really did just top off a perfect day and night.

    I will be recommending them to anyone who is arranging a wedding/celebration but don’t think it will even need my recommendation for anyone who was there

    …Absolutley fantastic

    Thank you again

  • Hello Mick,

    I thought I would drop you an e-mail on behalf of Kelly and I regarding Glen.

    He turned up in plenty of time and managed to get set up in the little courtyard we had adjacent to the main hall. He played a wide range of songs and people thought he was absolutely fantastic, the setting seemed to suit his style very well indeed and despite being a bit chilly I think he enjoyed it too !

    We would have no hesitation in recommending him at all, in fact we had quite a number of enquiries on the night as to how we managed to book him.

  • Hi Michael

    Can you please pass on our thanks to KATS for Saturday. We had an amazing day, myself, Chris and all our guests thought they were really good.

    It was a great atmosphere, I don't think I left the dance floor all night!

    Thank you for all your help.

    Regards

    Lisa Marshall - Wedding at Wynyard Hall

  • Hi Mick,
    We are currently on honeymoon but had to email you to pass on how amazing the Regulators were. They were outstanding!
    The whole band were extremely friendly throughout the evening, a lovely group of men.
    They got the wedding party up dancing & singing to the songs. The lead singer had an amazing voice & was very popular with the female guests :)
    We would not hesitate to use them again & recommend your company & the band to all my friends :)
    One of my fondest memories of the day was the band & everyone dancing & singing along.
    Please pass this on to the guys :)
    Lisa. X

  • Hi Mick,

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for organizing and Pawel for providing the ceremony music at our Wedding at the Sage in July.

    Not only did you put my mind at rest that everything was in hand but the music by Pawel was absolutely wonderful and a big hit with our guests. I just wish I had had a bit more time to enjoy it!

    Thanks again for the ease of the booking and quality of the artist - made even more special as Pawel was kind enough to learn a new song for us

    I couldn’t recommend you highly enough……..and will do so.

    Kind Regards,

    Lucy Bussell - The Sage, Gateshead - 26th July 2013

  • Well a week has past already since our special wedding. We just wanted to say a huge thanks to you and the bands for such a memorable evenings entertainment. Your recommendation for Redwings and the Keel Row Celidh band really was just perfect. They were absolutely fantastic and went down a storm with all our guests.

    We were probably most nervous about this part of our day as we hadn't managed to see Redwings perform before the wedding however they were so much better than we had ever expected.

    Like you said their taste in music was great just what we would have wanted and they managed to play the right songs in between their fantastic sets. All our guests commented how great they were. I really hope we manage to go see them perform in the future when we visit the North East again. The Ceilidh band also went down really well with our guests. I Just wish we could have had longer as it seemed to go so quickly.

    Thank you to you all for helping make our day run so well.

  • Dear Mick & Andy,

    In case you hadn’t guessed on the night, Amy and I were absolutely delighted with everything that you guys, the guys in Livewire and the Armstrong String Quartet did for our wedding. It was an absolutely superb day and we’ve had so many compliments on the music – particularly Livewire on the evening.

    Everyone we’ve spoken to have said that the band was one of the best – if not THE best – they’ve ever seen at a wedding and I honestly don’t think our dance floor emptied once.

    Karen absolutely NAILED our first dance and made it very memorable for me.

    I really hope all the Livewire guys enjoyed themselves – Andy, you were absolutely superb on the night – and again, I’d just like to say a massive THANK YOU from both Mrs Coates and myself. You played a massive, positive part in making our day very memorable. I’ve had several comments about how people have never seen me dance so much, so you were obviously doing something right because I wasn’t even that drunk!

    Cheers.

    Me and the Wife!

  • We used AMV to source us a quality band for our wedding at Alnwick Castle.

    They were simply amazing and finished what was a fantastic day for us both.

    AMV were superb, listening to everything we needed and bending over backwards to accommodate every request and "change of mind", even organising rehearsals for me, as I wanted to perform a song for my new wife with the band!

    I can't thank them enough and will recommend both AMV to anyone who asks me if I know where to get a good live band.

  • Andy,

    I have been meaning to e-mail you to thank AMV, Livewire and the String Quartet so much for being part of our Wedding on 3rd August. It really made our day!

    We have had so many positive comments about Livewire and the string quartet from our guests and we were so happy with how you sang our first dance.

    Thank you again and please pass on our thanks to the others.

    exactly what we wanted, they topped off an excellent day for both of us, so thanks again.

  • On behalf of Sir John and Lady Mae and everyone at Wynyard Hall, I would just like to say a enormous thank you to Michael and Andrew at AMV Live Music for organising our recent Summer Concert in the Walled Garden.

    It was a big success and everything from the lighting, to the stage, to the sound and of course the entertainment was amazing, we have received many thanks from our customers and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending AMV Live Music to stage and produce any event.

    We would like to say a massive thank you to Andy and the Bluehouse Band they were absolutely brilliant. From turning up it was like we already knew the band, very friendly. Everyone at our wedding evening commented on how good they were and played a mixture of songs, they got everybody involved with a sing along including the bridesmaid/best man. We would definitely recommend them.

    Regulators packed the dance floor with each set.

    We are so pleased we chose AMV, as the dialogue and organisation in planning our big day with you was excellent and reassuring.

  • Livewire played at our Law Society Graduation Ball and were fantastic. They worked really well with us before the event to create a set list that would meet our needs and we especially loved their version of Jonny B Goode. We would like to thank them for incorporating some swings songs into the set as well. AMV were great and made the booking process as simple as possible.

    As soon as Livewire started playing our guests were straight up onto the dance floor. Thankyou Livewire and AMV, the music made our event!!”

  • Dear Andy

    I just wanted to thank you again very much for supplying Bluenote, who are two super musicians, for our evening event last Thursday.

    Richard, the guitarist and Peter, the saxophonist created a fantastic atmosphere with their music, without being too intrusive – it was a perfect balance.

    I have no doubts that we will be coming to you again in the future and will be delighted to recommend AMV Live Music Ltd whenever the opportunity arises.

    With all our thanks again

  • Hey Mick,

    Just wanted to say thank you for all your help with Regulated for our wedding - I'm not exaggerating when I say everything was absolutely perfect - the guys played and DJ'd brilliantly and had the whole place rocking from start to finish.

    I would also like to thank you for your advice and professionalism and for promptly answering my endless emails straight away. I would be more than happy to write up a testimonial for your website as I would recommend using AMV to anyone. Just let me know if you would like me too.

    Thanks again.
