Matching Music with Events
We started in the music industry more than twelve years ago and have grown a successful events and production company based in the East Midlands; specialising in high-end weddings, private and corporate events.
Experience has taught us that finding the right live music to complement events can be difficult, so much has to be taken on trust – videos and edited tracks can only say so much about the style and quality of musicians.
Setting up Select Music Group in 2021 was a logical way to address this and you can book with confidence as every artist we list is one we would happily use ourselves.
Finding Entertaiment for You
We have deliberately only chosen artists who of work as professional musicians or have a great track record within the music and events industry.
Many of our artists also work as session musicians alongside household names – such as Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Karen Harding and Westlife to name but a few.
To make a booking simply choose your entertainment from our website, make an enquiry via the “Book” page to confirm availability and get a quote.
Once you are happy just confirm via email and we will send you the booking documents to get everything lined up for the big day.
From rising stars to accomplished musicians
Our artist roster reflects a diverse range of musical styles for any event. They have performed at major festivals and for private clients as well as companies such as Nike, Aston Martin, Red Bull, Microsoft, Harvey Nichols, Barclays, Levi’s and many more.
To the right you will find some of our featured artists to give you a flavour of what live event music options Select can provide. Other artists are constantly joining us so if your specific requirements are not exactly met by the artists shown, just get in touch.

We are a boutique live music booking and events agency providing a number of services, professional DJ’s & Musicians for a diverse range of events throughout the UK and internationally. If you can’t find an answer to you question below, please feel free to get in touch.
We rely on video & pictures to let our clients see the acts they go on to book so it is important that these are an accurate representation of what they can expect. Many of the pictures & videos on our website have been produced by us but we do also rely on media of performances provided by bands and performers. We believe this is the best way to show what a performer will deliver.
Combined with testimonials from previous clients and our personal contacts with them we believe we only represent quality and reliable acts.
If there is any significant change before a performance (such a change of lead singer in a band) we will always contact you and discuss this.
In cases of illness or other unseen issues (such as family bereavement, “force majeure” etc.) most of our bands may still be able to perform with substitute musicians. If the whole band has to cancel or if an individual artist is not able to perform, we will do everything possible to find a substitute you are happy with. As well as our own artists we have a wide range of industry contacts we can call on in such an unlikely emergency.
As a last resort, if an artist you have booked does not perform for any reason other than unforeseen matters beyond their control (force majeure) you are fully protected by your contract. We oversee this process to make sure you are covered and documentation is completed in a timely way.
Ultimately you have the right to legal redress but we know what you really want is your event to go ahead as planned so we will always contact you immediately as soon as we know about any problems and find the best substitute or solution.
Once you have booked an artist it is likely they will have to turn down other bookings on that date and may not be able to replace your booking – especially if the cancellation is at short notice.
Having said this we appreciate that your plans may change through no fault of your own so unlike many other agencies we operate a sliding scale of cancellation fees. Basically, the earlier you can let us know you need to cancel the less you have to pay.
Full details of any cancellation charges are clearly set out in our contract / terms and conditions or we are happy to discuss them with you.
The rider is a list of things that should be provided or arranged by you to ensure that the band or entertainer will be able to perform this may include access to the venue, changing facilities, soft drinks etc. There may be occasions where more items will need to be included on the rider due to the nature of the act’s performance. This will always be outlined prior to your booking being confirmed.
In most cases bands and artists provide everything they need in order to perform. However, if you, for example, book a musician to perform alongside a DJ they may need to plug in to a suitable / shared mixing desk and PA.
If a venue or event is very large artists may need to hire in additional AV (Audio / Visual) equipment or utilise AV equipment provided by another company. We will discuss these arrangements at time of booking and if you wish we can arrange the hire and operation of any additional AV equipment, including staging, lighting etc. as required.
