In 2008 our MD and founder, Nick Leigh, launched Tailored Entertainment with three bands – OJ’s Soul Band, Live Karaoke Band and The MT Collective (all of which are still on the Tailored roster!). Business quickly started to accelerate, and as it did more musicians and band leaders began to join our ranks – eager to work with an agency that could deliver artist development as well as a fully managed booking process.
From the beginning, Tailored’s focus was to provide a seamlessly managed and impeccable experience for our clients, and authentic touring-level quality from the acts we represent. These values have never changed, remaining a driver behind our growth as an agency - we connect the UK’s best musicians with industry leading management to create unforgettable entertainment experiences for every one of our clients.
In 2011, Nick put down his guitar and moved full-time into running and developing the business, acquiring an office space, and taking on staff for the first time.
In 2014, Tailored began to expand rapidly – an ever-growing team lead to a bigger office space and Tailored’s client list grew with it. Our thriving network of the very best professional musicians in the country allowed us to launch a host of industry leading acts such as Festival Nights, Soul Supreme, Gatsby’s Jukebox, One Big Reunion, Alive, Just For Tonight and LFX. Bands like these began to establish the industry standard for wedding and function entertainment, with many of them going on to become the most in-demand cover bands of their style in the country.
2018 saw us reach out into the international market with Tailored Worldwide, launched to specifically provide acts for cruise and international hotel contracts. In 2019, we expanded our already impressive DJ roster with DJ Live acts like Brass Monkeys and DJ Eli.
2020 proved to be a tough year for the entire entertainment industry, but we here at Tailored Entertainment never lost sight of our goals and we’ve continued to expand and improve. We’re once again setting industry standards with new, incredible acts like High School Reunion and The Corvettes. Plus, we’ve launched a brand-new website that makes the client experience even better and the booking process even easier than ever before.
In the last 12 years, we’ve provided unforgettable live music for over 12,000 events including performances at world-renowned venues like Isle of Wight Festival, Abbey Road Studios, Wembley Stadium, Grosvenor House, The Roundhouse in Camden, Battersea Evolution and Soho Farmhouse. We’ve become a trusted supplier of live entertainment to some of the most recognisable names in the world with a prestigious client list that includes Hollywood A-listers, international sports stars, BBC, ITV, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, F1 and Cadbury.
Our bands have also been a cherished part of thousands of happy couple’s wedding days – clients that have gone on to provide over 3000 five star reviews.
And our acts have been booked for weddings and events in locations right across the globe including bookings in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Singapore, India, USA, Dubai, Qatar, Kazakhstan and more!
We’re excited about the future as we continue to develop our exclusive roster of acts, which will soon host 150 of the UK’s best wedding and function bands, all of them handpicked by our team of experts to maintain our reputation for exceptional quality. This will see us sending incredible live entertainment to over 5000 events a year; each booking supported by our industry leading customer service and driven by our unrelenting commitment to excellence and collective desire to improve.
