“All have been professional and the quality of music has been great” – Jan 2018

“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!”


“The booking process was seamless and very easy” – Dec 2017

“Amazing DJ service for our Engagement party would highly recommend Bruce and the DJ we had for any event. The DJ had everyone up and dancing and only played music we asked for. The booking process through Need Music was seamless and very easy. Bruce was always there to answer any questions and did so quickly and efficiently.”

Beth Rowland

“The best around” – Jan 2017

“The Best around. Ive worked for Need music on numerous occasions as a Dj. Bruce is an amazing and an extremely reliable booking agent and is finding me work very regularly. Ive attended many of his acoustic nights as well and they’re always great. They’re also hosted by friendly musicians and offer new musicians a chance to come along play the night and get involved with Need music. If you’re a Dj or musician looking for gigs in the North East I highly recommend getting involved with Need Music.”

“It really made my night & my guests are still talking about it” – Jan 2018

“NEED Music provided a live band for my 30th birthday party at a city centre venue. They arranged a band that suited my requirements & liased directly with the venue so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. The band themselves were really brilliant & even got my young nephew up to play for one song. It really made my night & my guests are still talking about it. Would highly recommend. Thanks guys!”

“We didn’t have to worry about a thing all night” – Jan 2018

“We used Need Music Ltd for a sound engineer for a charity event we held recently – the service couldn’t have been better! As people who had no idea about the equipment we would have been lost otherwise but Kieran arrived well before the event to help set up and answered any and all questions we had. We didn’t have to worry about a thing all night! Thanks so much!”

“So professional, helpful and easy to work with” – Jan 2018

“I would highly recommend Need Music as they are an amazing company to work for. So professional, helpful and easy to work with and they provide everything that you will need.”

“A truly memorable occasion”

“Need Music organised my mothers 70th birthday party from first meeting Bruce I could see I was in safe hands. Providing a DJ and live music I also ask if the musician could learn a specific song which meant a great deal to my mother which was no problem what so ever. My mother and her guests had a fantastic time. I’ve no doubt that it was down to the professional approach bruce and his acts bring was definitely a day to remember for all, would recommend need music to anyone after a truly memorable occasion. Thanks Need Music” – May 2017
