Be the first one to tell everyone about the experience you’ve had with this supplier.
Unlike other agencies, AMV Live Music offers a unique, supportive approach.
We don't just book 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

What is your most memorable wedding?
I once supplied an amazing amount of music to a bride and groom for their wedding of over 300 people. They had a choir during the ceremony, an acoustic guitarist duo during the drinks reception, a swing singer for during the meal, an 11 piece live band in the evening followed by an ibiza style sax and bongo percussionist with a DJ.
We, as a business book the music into over 1000 weddings a year. Without a glitch. We grow year upon year, and last year we won the North of England wedding award for outstanding customer service. This was voted for by our previous clients, and the testimonials we received from them made this a very proud moment for us.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get all your favourite suppliers secured early to avoid disappointment.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I'm in a band myself, and at one wedding the groom and ushers performed a surprise choreographed routine for the bride. Then the whole wedding party went outside for a firework display. It was amazing!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Firstly, we consult with couples directly to discuss exactly what type of music they envisage for their wedding. We'll chat through various options and packages and set up a bespoke enquiry in our booking system for them. As soon as the artists come back to us with their availability and fees for their date, we will send these out to the couple. They will then have a chance to watch the artists' demos, view their songlist and we will also give them dates that these artists are playing live. We understand that booking an artist/band is not something you do everyday, so we will go through any questions that they may have and iron out all the finer details. The couple have their own login details to our system whereby they can list everything, including any special requests, setlists, DJ playlists, set times etc.
What makes a romantic first dance?
Don't think to much about the choreography. There's nothing worse than watching a couple stare at their feet the whole time. Just enjoy it!! Stand and sway if you have to! But smile!
What is your number one floor-filler?
Proud Mary through and through! Wedding parties go wild for it!
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
The Spice Girls, purely because who wouldn't want to be a Spice Girl?
