WHAT OUR ARTISTS SAY ABOUT US
I have recently renewed my membership with Music & Events partly due to the fact that the small cost for the year means it only takes one gig through the website to recoup the money!
I am a guitarist and singer based in the east and music of all varieties has long been my main passion. About a year or two ago I decided I wanted to sign up with a website as a way of receiving more bookings.
I contacted Tommy Winn (who runs Music & Events) and he was very enthusiastic about my music and the opportunities his website might generate for me.
I signed up shortly after our conversation and during my first year I’ve had a number of bookings plus constant guidance from Music and Events who, through regular phone calls and emails has suggested ideas to improve my page and enquire on my progress.
Hopefully this year will bring lots more gigs and another successful year with Music & Events!
‘Nick Allen’ - Singer & Guitarist
All I can say is that so far I have had my first booking and hits onto my site have increased!!!
An investment worth making!!!
Dominic – ‘Sweet Soulful Sound’
I am delighted to share how satisfied I am to be associated with Music and Events. The unique Music directory provides my band ‘Energy’ with a fantastic opportunity to present ourselves in a professional and exciting new way. The usability of the site is so user friendly that I found myself enjoying the slick and easy process of uploading our songs, photos and information. It also gives me peace of mind to know that I’m directly targeting my customer.
Since being listed on Music and Events I have been receiving regular enquiries and bookings, and saw a return on my investment in only a couple of months. In consideration of the success I have had on Music and Events I decided to upgrape to a Premium Listing.
Upgrading to a Premium Listing also allowed me to take advantage of a one to one consultation with the Music and Events owner Tommy Winn and it was excellent.
Phil Davison: Drummer and Band leader of ‘Energy’ Function Band.
‘Music and Events’ has proved to be a very helpful and informative service to the aspiring band or artist. Since the start of my own band (Immaculate Groove Project), the only company that would actually give me useful information about charges, venues and gigs was Music and Events. Tommy Winn, the man behind Music and Events is very passionate about his company and it’s pretty easy to see that.
The website is designed to help bands get noticed by potential clients and it’s easy to use, it’s no wonder that Music and Events has already had so much interest.
I’ve known Tommy for just over a year now and I can safely say I’m glad I decided to use Music and Events to promote our band, where advice and support is just a phone call away, instead of the hundreds of people who are just out there to take your money!
Anthony: Immaculate Groove Project
Music and Events has put so many gigs and enquiries our way. I would recommend them to any band wanting a busier gig calendar. The owner Tommy Winn is very helpful and approachable and the site is very easy to set up and update. I will definitely be singing up for the following year!
Sally Taylor: The Sally Taylor Band
Since we have joined the Music and Events directory, we have had lots of hits on our page, several enquiries and even a confirmed booking.
Tommy has given us some insightful information about how to optimise any enquiries and web visits and is always available and willing to offer advice and information about how to make the best use of the directory.
I am sure we will continue to stay in the directory - it has proven great value for money.
Stephen - The TestostaTones
WHAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE ATTENDED OUR WORKSHOPS, SEMINARS ( IT’S SHOWTIME ) & CONSULTATIONS SAY ABOUT US
We recently had One to One consultation with Tommy Winn and were very impressed by the quality of the information and advice given, I have always been wary of this type of consultation process but this was worth every penny, already we have a realistic plan to get us where we want to get to as well as some great ideas to improve our advertising and marketing, Tommy is very easy to deal with and the best thing is he has been on a journey of improvement himself so talks from personal experience.
Simon Howe – Zoom Duo
Tommy was fantastic, you could tell that he had worked really hard and that he was honest about his experiences. It was great for me to be sat there amongst other entertainers and know that I wasn’t the only one out there who needed a little help. It’s a good feeling to know that there is someone out there who is willing to give me a helping hand when I need one. I hope that all of his other “It’s Showtime” seminars are a huge success as I hope that now I shall be a success!
Thanks again Tommy!
Kirsty Rogers – Female Solo Artist
I have just come out of ‘It’s Showtime with the fantastic Tommy Winn and it has been a brilliant day.

Seamus O’Doherty – Musician
It’s a tremendous event, Tommy’s been there, done it and he really knows his business, in fact I think in an afternoon you can learn what may take 2 or 3 painful years to learn by trial and error, hear it from the expert, excellent.
Roger Haywood – Musician
I have had a great day with Tommy at ‘It’s Showtime’ I have learnt loads of different things about marketing myself, image, the legalities about PAT Testing and public liability insurance and I am going away motivated and ready to take on the industry!
Chrissy Stone – Female Solo Artist
Hi Tommy, Ian from ‘Street Level Entertainment’ just want to say a big thanks for the stuff you have given us today, it’s been a brilliant day, well worth the money, a great time, met some great people. Thank you very much.
Ian Bennett – Street Level Entertainment
I have been in the entertainment business as a semi professional artist for over 20 years.
I’ve always wanted to know the best path to take, to promote and gain extra work for the function band I perform with.
With the ever increasing computer and smart phone technology around today, I was after some guidance with regards to promoting my band through various networking sites, and preventing our website becoming a lost needle in the www.haystack!
Music & Events was able to deliver some facts and advice about the effectiveness and current hit ratings of our site, and demonstrate a structured networking and advertising process that would lead to more people viewing the bands websiteas a stand alone site.
The levels of hits, and direct links to our website, through Tommy’s high ranking search optimised Entertainment Directory, ‘Music and Events’ was also explained.
Tommy who I met with being an entertainment performer himself was able to shed some light on the uncertainties I had about the profession, and prove inspirational and tuitional, with regards to the quantity and quality of the work that I seek.
To summarise Music & Events provides a new, and invaluable unique consultation service, on a one to one basis, to help entertainers on the path to successful self promotion, and I am sure I will be thanking him for years to come for his professional and helpful advice.
Phil Atkinson: Boogie Fever Band
I found it extremely helpful, informative and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new and like minded people and came away bursting with ideas for expanding my business. My confidence in my own marketing skills was also greatly boosted. I would happily recommend It’s Showtime.
Sarah Andrew – Female Solo Artist
A one to one consultation with the Music and Events owner Tommy Winn was a great opportunity to comprehensively consider all aspects of running my band, from setting goals, social networking, contracts, customer care, marketing and various other brainstorming ideas. I appreciated having his expert attention for such aconcentrated period of time and left his care much wiser than when I arrived.
Phil Davison: Drummer and Band leader of ‘Energy’ Function Band.
Just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to give me a private consultation the other day.
I found the meeting really useful, your presentation was full of detail, well thought out and very clearly put across.
I have been entertaining for a number of years, I would recommend this to all entertainers, young or old, new to the business or seasoned pros!
Dave Parker: Solo Rat Pack Singer
WHAT THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY SAYS ABOUT US
I love Music and Events. Owner Tommy Winn is not only a fabulous guy, he provides a frankly unique basis upon which to market a whole host of entertainment acts. He should be applauded by the top echelons of the industry.
Mark Fitch - Partner At Hatch Brenner Solicitors
Tommy is a well known entertainer who in recent times has decided to give back lessons learnt to the entertainment community.
I have seen him perform and captivate the audience, I’ve had many glowing reviews from others who have seen him or use his innovative Music & Events website, used by many to promote their own career in entertainment.
For me the most noteworthy is his desire to give entertainers all over the UK the benefit of his experience of turning entertainment talent into a business that works.
As a writer, speaker and business mentor myself, my message is talk to Tommy or better still sign up to one of his workshops or consultations, you’ll never look back!
Chris Batten - Writer, Motivational Business Speaker. Sales, Marketing & Leadership Expert:
I have worked with Music & Events on a number of design and web projects and have always found them very easy to work with and friendly.
It is clear that they have a profound understanding of the industry they are in, and are looking to build strong relationships with their clients and suppliers.
Throughout my work with Music & Events, their main focus has always been on improving their customer satisfaction and adapting to meet their needs. It’s great to work with a company that really does care about each of it’s customers, and is willing to go out of their way to help.

WHAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOOKED ARTISTS FEATURED ON MUSIC AND EVENTS SAY
We found the perfect act for our lunch through Music and Events. The brief was fulfilled completely and on the day everyone was extremely happy with the music. We could not have asked for a better service, and all at a fantastic price. Thank you so much!
All of the performers were on time, which was great and they were very adaptable to the change in our timings, as we were running a little late. The performance was great, and very fitting to the event.
I found the service extremely helpful from start to finish. Music and Events provided all of the information which I needed.
Lotte Martin (www.movingvenue.com) – Corporate Lunch for the King and Queen of Malaysia At Lotus Cars Ltd
Every aspect of the performance was fantastic. We needed to create a fun, party atmosphere and the band were excellent at building rapport with our guests – coming down off the stage was a great idea.
The set list was great, mixed and played to an extremely high quality. We really stretched ourselves financially, and we knew we needed to get the best we could for the best possible price.
The combination of Top Cats and DJ option provided us with fantastic music, quality musicians, and created a great party atmosphere for a really fun evening and a full dancefloor – everything we were looking for!
I would have no hesitation in using Music and Events or The Top Cats again, and would unreservedly recommend them to others.
Harpist was, as you said excellent and provided a great variety of tunes during dinner. Would recommend Rebecca Witts to anyone looking for such background music.
The band were awesome. The lead singer was truly great – not just with the vocals, but with active crowd participation.
A few people who attended are interested in using them in the future and we would recommend them for future weddings and high spirited events.
