Harry Mears - Mellow Moments


Are looking for something different to a string quartet or solo singer for your Wedding Breakfast?  Why not have a live saxophone player at your Wedding Reception?


Harry Mears of Mellow Moments, trained as a musician while in the army and he now provides an easy listening service for all types of function.  I have worked with Harry numerous times over the years and I would have no hesitation to recommend this gentleman of the live music world.


Harry has worked at some of the premier venues in the North East, including: Headlam Hall Hotel, Hallgarth Country House Hotel, Auckland Castle, Tall Trees Hotel, Judges Hotel, Slayley Hall Hotel, Blackwell Moathouse Hotel and Durham Castle. 

Over the years I've had the pleasure of working with Striking Back to provide an excellent entertainment package at Weddings, Christmas and New Year Parties, Balls and Fundraising Nights.  The band members are all down to earth and have worked in the live msuic game for so long that they don't need to entertain to boost their egos.


If you're into your classic 60s rock and a touch of modern indie, Striking Back are a band that you should definately consider for your event.

The Dean Solomon Band are the top North East Wedding Band and Function Band providing live entertainment for weddings, functions, parties and all events across North East England.  The band will keep the dance floor packed all night and entertain ALL of your guests with our huge repertoire of swing, rockabilly, pop and rock music from the 1950s to the present day.

Laughing Jacks are a Newcastle based wedding and function band.  The six-piece outfit performs many styles of music, including: rock, pop, soul and jazz.  The band is regarded as one of the top function bands in the North and we always work together to give our clients a night to remember.


You may also want to check out the other live entertainment from their lead singer - Andrea Pattison.

If you're a big fan of the music from Bryan Adams, I would thoroughly recommend hiring or going to see The Bryan Adams Experience.  The band is fronted by Stuart who has a striking resemblance and singing voice to the man they pay tribute to.  The band have performed all around the UK and Europe and I've had the pleasure of their company in the radio studio and also seeing them perform on-stage.  The band primarily entertain at corporate or public events, but they are available for hire for any type of occasion.  For more information, visit The Bryan Adams Experience website.

Jump The Q are a leading function band that provides professional quality entertainment for the North East of England.  The band is made up of professional musicians and can be booked for Weddings and many other celebrations.  They can cater for a number of musical tastes, including: pop, background jazz, swing and ceilidh.


Client Comments


Now that we're back from a great few weeks away in Sri Lanka, I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your efforts a few weeks ago. From the packed dance floor all night I can safely say, and hope you'd agree, that people loved the tunes!


Thank you for essentially sticking to the play list and for choosing some cracking tunes off the play list. My only slight regret is that I didn't ban requests and so could have saved myself the shame of the "Ice, Ice Baby" display! At least the video chap had gone back home by then so there is no lasting record!


If you're in need of recommendations I'd be happy to give one on your behalf so please feel free to keep my details on record for that purpose.


Many thanks again.


All the best,


Mr & Mrs Slade
