Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.

      Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.

      Watch Our Wedding Music Video Testimonial

      Gill Tookman
      Mother of the Bride
      Adam & Amy’s Wedding, December 2014
      Louise Blouin Foundation, London

      Gill: We had every aspect of the performance exactly how we wanted it. The music was soft enough for people to talk, but some people would dance during dinner, after dinner… The music was fantastic. It was a real party atmosphere, everyone was dancing. A great feeling about the evening… the guests had an amazing time, the family had a wonderful time, and more importantly the bride and bridegroom were over the moon with everything.

      Hear how Metropolis blew everyone away at a Corporate Event

      Video Testimonial From Adrian Pike
      Chief Execuative, Anesco
      Wokefield Park, nr Reading
      Christmas 2014

      Adrian: The biggest thing, I think, lacks today in the entertainment industry, is people that listen. You listened to what we wanted… Everything you did made my life easier. To be honest, once we booked you, you listened to what I wanted and you went on and did it. And you coordinated with my other third party supplies seamlessly. Everybody’s been blown away by the event. And most importantly, my staff just wants to book you again. So that’s not bad. Better accolade for you and me.
