In short LMM are the UKs best entertainment agency.We have some of the best bands in the UK working for us.We supply entertainment to well known venues like Walkabout bars ,Butlins and Bar Risa as well as to hundreds of individual clients who book bands and DJs from us for their wedding or party.Big proffessional party planners,events companies and wedding organisers use our expertise when choosing bands and DJs for their events.We are a UK company with a 12 year history of great service and long standing clients.
Now let me tell you a little about what we did in June and early July.
The sun came out and many of our bands reported beautiful evenings in lovely venues playing music at wedding across the country.I myself attended one of these weddings and sat outside on the lawn listening to Storm play a fabulous party set.Through the open doors of the marquee I could see a packed dance floor and the band bouncing around singing their anthem packed party set which appealed to the mums and dads,aunties and uncles,grans and grandads as well as the thirty something bride and groom.Sitting drinking Pims and watching this band (I am no great dancer!) creating such a fantastic atmosphere at this brilliant wedding was a highlight of June for me. http://www.lmmuk.com/band/Storm is the place to gather more information about great party band Storm for your wedding.
We had many bands and DJs playing at weddings throughout June 2009.Some of our acts were lucky enough to play at celebrity weddings.
We were very proud to recieve an email from Mr and Mrs Nik Kershaw after Sugar Shack played at their wedding during June.Nik Kershaw was,you may remember, a huge star in the 1980s and his hits included “Wouldnt It Be Good,” “The Riddle”,”I Wont Let The Sun Go Down On Me” etc.He also wrote hits for Let Loose,The Hollies and the massive anthem (which is still played by many LMM bands and DJs) “I Am The One And Only” for Chesney Hawkes.Despite Sugar Shack being very nervous playing for this very accomplished musician (blimey this guy played at Live Aid and has worked with Elton John amongst others) the band had a fantastic time and went down a storm.We got an email from Nik Kershaw and his wife saying that they should receive commission for all the recomendations they had passed onto their friends!If you want more info about Sugar Shack for a wedding or event check out http://www.lmmuk.com/band/Sugar+Shack
Paul Conner played at Alan Halsalls (Tyrone Dobbs from Coronation Street) to Lucy Jo Hudson (former Coronation Street and Wild At Heart actress) and even got his picture in OK magazine when he was joined on stage for an impromptu bit of Rockaoke by Andrew Whyment who plays Kirk Sutherland in Coronation Street.Paul Conner is available for weddings and parties through LMM and his profile can be found here http://www.lmmuk.com/band/Paul+Conner
LMM would like to congratulate all the couples who got married in June and early July and wish them all the best for the future.Thanks for all your kind emails and phone calls praising the entertainment at your weddings.We are very proud of the guys (and girls) working for us and we know they always put 100% into every show.Even so it is nice to get your feedback.
Besides weddings LMM are involved in lots of other activities.
We are very proud to be able to supply bands and DJs for the UK armed forces and in June and July we had a number of shows both here in the UK and overseas.Electric Mayhem continued their long standing relationship with the military by entertaining the troops at a British Forces Radio Show in Cyprus and travelling over to Germany for a run of shows.Lucas flew off to Peru in early july with CSE for another run of dates.The Zoo had a trip overseas as well (the third such trip this great North East Band have made.)Sugar Shack played dates in the UK for the military.It is a great honour to be able to provide entertainment for our service men and women and our bands are always grateful to be able to perform for the troops. We were also able to welcome a special band into our venues in June when the house band from HMS Sydney performed for us in several Walkabout venues after LMM arranged for them to play some shows whilst the ship was docked in UK ports.It was a pleasure to have been able to host these concerts for the Australian Armed Forces.
As the weather turned nice we were able to supply a number of live bands and DJs for events on farms (some of which were for local farmers associations.) I attended one of these myself and it was a perfect mid summer night.A warm sunny day fell into night with live acoustic music which had everyone singing along.A large bonfire was lit as darkness descended and sofas made of straw bales were stacked around the fire.The local kids played on the bucking bronco and bouncy slide.The food was provided by a hog roast.It was a truly memorable evening which was enjoyed by everyone (the barn which had been cleared for the occasion in case of rain was left empty!) Take a look here for acoustic duos and solos suitable for this type of party http://www.lmmuk.com/solos-duos.php
Space and time stop me from going into too much detail about the other events we have provided entertainment for in June 2009 but I would like to draw your attention to Nat King Bing And The Kings Of Schwing.This great band play jazz swing versions of pop and rock anthems.They are the ultimate party Jazz band.The best swing band for events and weddings.The most fun swing,jazz band in the UK.Take a look at http://www.lmmuk.com/band/Nat+King+Bing+and+The+Kings+Of+Schwing for sound files and details of their swing jazz ttake on Michael Jacksons Bille Jean,The Killers Somebody Told Me,The Kaiser Cheifs I Predict A Riot and more.You are going to be hearing a lot more about Nat King Bing and they are perfect for any party or event.Last week they launched with several shows including dates at the Birmingham Jazz Festival (one in the daytime outside the Mailbox and one in the evening at Bluu) both shows went down a storm and people are loving the original and entertaining take on much loved songs.Nat King Bing is a one off unique act…perfect for any crowd.
I am off to Toronto on holiday (off to the Toronto Beaches Jazz Festival) next week so I may not get a chance to blog until August.Look after yourselves.If you need top quality entertainment contact the LMM office on 08454 900515 or email email@example.com we will be sure to give you the right advice and help.
