Management Solutions For Live Music Events

Managing any event can be stressful, but live music events are perhaps the most exasperating! You have different acts to book (all trying to negotiate the highest fee), and you’ve got staging and PA equipment to source. You have to liaise with stage managers, lighting managers, various different band managers – and that’s before we even start thinking about ticket sales and crowd management. Sometimes it feels as if you need to clone yourself.

That’s where James Kerry Music comes in. No, not cloning! We don’t do that, sorry. But we can take over as much or as little of the live music aspect of events management as you’d like. We have experience stage managing small local festivals like the Pig’s Ear Folk Ale, right through to booking acts for the Edenbridge & Oxted Agricultural Show. No matter what size your festival or event is, we will have something to offer. Our packages are responsive and affordable. Just get in touch and we’ll be sure to figure out something that suits your budget.

What we can offer:


From discos to ceilidhs and farm shows to folk festivals, we ensure that your event runs smoothly. We’ll book your live music acts, build and break-down the staging, provide and operate the sound and lighting equipment, and everything in between. Relax in the knowledge that your event is in safe hands. We’re based in Kent, South East England, and we take on events all over Britain. We have over 300 acts in our network and all of our own equipment. So pick up the phone and give James Kerry Music a call before all of your hair turns white!

“James joined the organization committee for the 2017 Pigs Ear Folk Ale, and has proved a huge asset to the team. He discharged his particular responsibilities for organising the stage, lighting and PA for our festival in June this year in a highly competent fashion which greatly contributed to the smooth running of the festival programme. Every aspect of the festival’s organization has benefited from James’ passion for the music, his energy, enthusiasm and ‘can do’ attitude.”
