Thanks for helping us out
Thanks for helping us out Bruce, we are very happy with your work from the first email through to today. Thank you!
Kirsty was excellent!
Kirsty was excellent, I look forward to booking her again.
I will be recommending you to everyone!
The service was so good I contacted Bruce last minute and he got everything sorted for me, it was so easy I will be using them again. A big thank you and I will be recommending you to everyone!
They were incredible!
“These two lovely people performed at our wedding and they were incredible! So easy to work with, 100% flexible and professional. I could not imagine having anyone else who could have made our day as special. Highly recommended.”
Fabulous people… can’t wait to see them perform again!
“I met this couple when they appeared in our local pub and they sang at our wedding reception in January. Alisha even learnt a couple of my favourite songs to sing on the night. A fabulous couple of people, I cannot wait to see them perform again!”
Everything we could have hoped for!
Can’t thank Need Music Agency and Bruce enough for all their help in finding a DJ for our wedding reception.
Bruce was so helpful throughout the whole process, happy to answer any questions we threw his way.
Rob was a perfect choice, exactly what we wanted for our evening reception. He was everything we could have hoped for and his dancing was the cherry on the cake!
Would definitely recommend!
“He made sure my party went with a swing!”
Lee was brilliant and everyone who came to my party commented on how lovely it was to have live music, how good he was and asked me where I had found him.
He was very reassuring from his first introductory email and very eager to make sure he played the music I wanted and that he fitted in with the schedule. I would definitely book Lee again. He made sure my party went with a swing. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends.
“A lovely guy and fantastic musician”
Lee was absolutely fantastic. A lovely guy and fantastic musician. Very personable, happy to chat with guests when they bothered him, nice and smiley and just played absolutely the right sort of music for the occasion. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!
“We highly recommend Lee… He is a star!”
Lee was incredible! Absolutely spot on! He made the evening a truly successful event. Fantastic performance with a high standard professional attitude/presentation.
We highly recommend Lee for any occasion. He is a star!
“Absolutely perfect… a delight for us and our guests.”
Everyone at the wedding was really impressed with Lee’s piano playing. The background music that Lee played was absolutely perfect in what was a perfect day in all. Lee gave us a choice of music before the wedding, and it was played absolutely beautifully. You can tell that Lee really loves what he does, and I know I shouldn’t be saying it, but I’m sure Lee played a lot longer then the 90mins we requested, which was a delight for us and our guests. Thank you Lee, we would thoroughly recommend Lee to anyone else!
They were absolutely amazing!
Patrick and Kieran were absolutely amazing at my Mam’s birthday party, and we had loads of positive comments about the music!
Gets everyone singing!
Great voice and gets everyone singing!
I would recommend Phil ten times over!
“I wanted to say how fantastic Phil Short was playing at our wedding. We had a small
gathering in our garden and wanted some bespoke back ground music. Phil was perfect,
he played songs we picked and learnt a couple of tunes for us too. He has a lovely voice
and is an accomplished guitarist. I would recommend Phil ten times over!”
A joyous concert with lots of interaction and great choice of repertoire!
This was a joyous concert with lots of interaction and great choice of repertoire from rock’n’roll to the present day, which worked very well for the audience. They took the trouble to check who they would be performing to in advance and chose a very appropriate set. They kept the concert moving along swiftly and there was time for banter with some of the audience who were obviously engaged in the performance. Including several medleys allowed you to include a lot of songs, so kept lots of moments of recognition coming. Using PA may not be appropriate in all settings but it worked well in this room, and perhaps, along with your dressed up appearance, helped give the sense of occasion. We talked at the end about Dee leading some clapping actions – which only didn’t happen due to a broken mic stand and you would normally do this. You learned everyone’s names which was impressive! Feedback from the audience and staff was very positive. Thank you for an entertaining afternoon!
Bloomfield Duo were simply excellent!
The Bloomfield Duo were simply excellent! Hired them to perform in a small marquee for my Mum’s 75th birthday. Despite the pouring rain and enduring the cold of the Northumbrian summer, Paul and Dee did us proud. They put together a fantastic and varied set to take into account the different age groups and everyone loved it. They had us all singing and dancing too! Prior to the event they had asked me for any specific songs that my family would like and then performed them, which was brilliant! They even learned a special song for my wife and I, very much appreciated and Christy Moore would be impressed! Their banter and general chat with the audience was funny and got us all going. Every one of my family and guests commented how great they thought Paul and Dee were. The sound quality was perfect and Dee’s singing and Paul’s guitar playing were spot on! I would have no hesitation on booking them again. So why not book them, you’ll love them. They are two wonderful people too! Thanks for making my Mum’s 75th Birthday an evening to remember, she has not stopped talking about it, best day of her life, she said! Thanks Dee and Paul, hope to see you again and thanks for “the reel in the flickering light”!
A marvellous night for us all to remember!
Our guests really enjoyed the songs of Paul & Dee. They had a great rapport with their audience, and created a relaxed and fun atmosphere with their songs. We found them to be totally professional when we made enquiries and arranged the booking, and punctual and organised when they arrived on the night. Our thanks to them both for providing a marvellous night for us all to remember!
She was brilliant!
“Amy sang for a couple of hours at my party in El Paso, Jesmond – she was brilliant! Highly recommend her!”
Absolutely amazing, everyone was up dancing!
Thank you so much for performing at my husbands 30th you guys were absolutely amazing! Everyone was up dancing and has complimented on how fantastic the live music was. Highly recommend this lovely and very talented duo.
Bruce was very accommodating and professional…
Having been to several gigs run by Need Music over the years and attended parties where they have DJ’d, we booked them to DJ our engagement party last night. As expected the music was excellent and had everyone up dancing, Bruce was very accommodating and professional as always.
Couldn’t recommend Need Music Agency enough
“They accepted a job with 4 days notice, and quite frankly my fundraiser wouldn’t have happened without them! Highly recommended and can’t wait to work with them again!”
Aimee was absolutely amazing at our wedding
Aimee learned our wedding song acoustic, we thought it might me difficult but it was so natural and made walking down the aisle so much easier. Aimee then played at our cocktail hour, loads of our guests commented on how amazing she was. Thank you so much, you really did make our ceremony and cocktail hour so much more personalised!”
Absolutely blew the crowd away
Big thanks to Mary Singer for stepping up. absolutely blew the crowd away on Sunday.
I’ll definitely be booking him again!
Had Conor play at The The New Sundial for me last night and he was fantastic. I’ll definitely be booking him again!
Patrick was a huge hit…
The music was suitable for everyone form the youngest to the oldest – at one point I looked around and everyone’s singing along!Everyone was talking about how good it was.
DJ played everything we wanted!
Yeah we had great night thanks Bruce. The DJ (Matty) played everything we wanted to hear. Thanks again for sorting at such short notice.
All the guests loved him…
Would completely recommend using Need Music to provide music for your event. Bruce was super helpful and knew exactly which one of his acts would be suitable for the party I was arranging. Cannot sing Kieran’s praises high enough – he was fantastic. Really good range of and he had planned the set according to the type of music I had discussed with Bruce. All the guests loved him and he was also very accommodating with our high jinks microphone stealing antics! Thank you so much to both of you! x
We had Kieran sing at our wedding and he was fab!
All the guests loved him and he made the afternoon. He has a great voice and really good song choices.Thank you Kieran!!!!

He was absolutely brilliant!

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Need Music
‘I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Need Music throughout this past season. They were great at accommodating last minute requests and offered us a wide range of artists (Aimee Lambert, Kieran Taylor & Kirsty Forster Duo) who were perfectly placed to our hospitality environment.’
Professional and the quality of music has been great
Used Need Music a variety of times over the past year and has provided excellent service and acts. Bruce is friendly, organised and even committed to attending the first few sessions to make sure everything went right. Fast response and has helped me out over a busy festive period when most other agencies couldn’t provide an act. I’ve used acoustic performers and saxophonists, all of which have been professional and the quality of music has been great. Would highly recommend for any business looking to put on some live music or music entertainment in the North East!
Hugely popular and sang a great variety of songs
We used Need Music as entertainment for Rothbury Food and Craft Festival; our crowds were entertained by Patrick and Kieran who were hugely popular and sang a great variety of songs which suited everyone. Some even brought back memories. Thank you Bruce for introducing us to Kieran and Patrick.
They were so helpful, excellent service & such a fantastic variety of talented singers
I used Need Music to find an acoustic singer for my engagement party and I have to say they are brilliant. They were so helpful, excellent service & such a fantastic variety of talented singers/musicians so much so that I found it really hard to choose. In the end we chose Harry Smethurst and he was amazing, everyone commented on how fantastic he was & asked how we booked him etc. Will defo be recommending Need Music & Harry, thanks for such a brilliant night!
He was absolutely perfect for the event
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for recommending Connor for our events this week. He was absolutely perfect for the event, so talented and such a lovely guy! We had so many people commenting about him and wanting his details.”
Would highly recomend for that special night
“Bruce organised my entertainment for my 70th party. Great night – would highly recomend for that special night if you have one coming up.”

We just wanted to say a huge thank you
“Hi Bruce. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the guitarists and the DJ who were at our wedding. They were all great, particularly the DJ who joined in and was part of the guests by the end of the night!”
