Unfortunately, we’re not yet in a position where we can produce videos. This is due to the various legal and financial factors involved of hiring musicians and venues. We’ve seen it occur in the past that musicians and venues breach agreements, and it is more difficult to ensure that the video is of the required standard when there are so many risks at stake. However, we do plan to produce videos for all artists eventually once we have the necessary legal protections/insurances in place (but we’d rather ensure that the videos are a true representation of our quality rather than producing ones that don’t adequately reflect the lineup).
Apologies for the inconvenience caused. Please be assured we are on the case with this!

Please note: a confirmation does not constitute a contract. We still require a contract to honour our original quotation, even if the date(s) are confirmed. An additional holding period may be allocated to allow for the contract signing, subject to our discretion. Otherwise, our original quotation only applies until the end of our original quotation's reservation period, regardless of whether the date(s) are confirmed or not. We cannot be held to honour our original quotation if a contract is issued after this point.
Our quotes increase incrementally according to the notice at which we sign a contract, and it is our policy to close all enquiries 5pm Friday the week before at the very latest, to avoid costly trains/hotel fare hikes. We appreciate your understanding.
We reserve our best deals for enquiries made in advance. For more information, please visit www.redandblackmusic.co.uk to find out how more money could be saved by booking in advance.
3 satisfying slices of ignorance from Essence Music Agency.
The agent displays:
This agent requires musicians and bands to travel up to the North West coast for auditions and fund their own transport, regardless of where they're travelling from in the UK, for no guaranteed work.
Tony commissioned Rory to put together a brass section for the Manchester School of Samba @ Parklife Festival (Ear To The Ground). Tony didn't pay Rory or the band members for 3 months claiming that there were cash flow issues, but it soon transpired through the festival that he had been paid in cash on the day. Read below for the full discussions.
