We used AMV to source us a quality band for our wedding at Alnwick Castle and we booked Livewire.
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 and Livewire to anyone who asks me if I know where to get a good live band..

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!
Me and the Wife!
Michael & Amy Coates – Walworth Hall
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
Vanessa Thompson, Development Team at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art
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.

I know it’s been a couple of weeks but I wanted you to pass on our regards to Ashleigh, Kelly and the band. They did a wonderful job over the wedding weekend and a lot of people commented that they were the best band they had heard at a wedding before. We really appreciate how they contributed to our wedding and we hope they enjoyed it too (and weren’t too bothered by the drunken people on the dance floor later in the evening!!).
Also a big thanks to you for your help with the organisation and helping us to get past the early date problems!
All the best,
Alec Berry – Ellingham Hall, March 2012

I booked Livewire through AMV 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.

Just thought I would drop you a line.
Andy Garner was really good tonight.
Good song choice and he did create a nice vibe, relaxed yet lively.

“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!!”

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 just wanted to thank you once again for your excellent service and to ask if you could also pass on our thanks again to Glen for Monday. He was brilliant and everyone loved him – truly amazing voice and talent! He was perfect during the ceremony and a real wow factor when everyone at the back realized it was someone singing live and not a recording!!! I think he now has a few extra fans too!

Just wanted to drop a quick line to say what a great night it turned out to be, the guys helped create a really great atmosphere for the event and I especially thought Karen Harding was fantastic !
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 !

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.

Mike and I (and my Mum) were at As You Like It on Friday night and saw Livewire…we thought they were fantastic, as you said, and we definitely want to book them for our wedding on 20th August. The female vocalist was very soulful and the guys voices were great, it will definitely give us a really wide choice for a playlist.
