From The Ice Bucket Challenge to The Jacksons

Well August went in a bit of a flash with two notable highlights for Moulin Music Live. Dodgy playing to a sundrenched audience at Shildonbury Festival – the crowd loved the day and we’ve been signed up to provide next years headline act – so watch this space.

On the bank holiday Sunday we launched Tributes In The Market Square in Darlington, and had 5 amazing acts thrill the crowd from Jessie J to Dolly Parton, we had it all – and yes we are back next August 2015 for another one

I even managed to find time to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and decided to donate 25% of the profits,  to this very worthy cause, from the Roland Gift show which I was promoting at the Sage in Gateshead.

Hardwick Live on the 12th and 13th September promised to be mega and boy was it! Simple Minds headlined the Friday night with Scouting for Girls, and The Jacksons were amazing on Saturday. Yes Jim Kerr did have a couple of juicers on his rider and the biggest array of stuff to put in said juicers that you’ve ever seen, only to see it upon arrival and declare – “I’m not really doing the juice thing now”…err ok. And The Jacksons had food and beverage rider stipulations for every hour of the day that we ordered in especially only to say to me when it all turned up in their dressing room…”have you got any soup, we just want some soup”…no problem.

At Moulin Music we organized artist liaison for some 15 acts across the two days and it was the most fun ever…especially walking Adam Ant right across the whole hotel dressed in his full “Stand and Deliver” costume, and watching people’s faces as they clocked that it was in fact the real deal not some guy in fancy dress. The weekend after that was also amazing as Twister headlined at The O2 Academy Newcastle, it was mad busy, very hot…but the guys put in their best performance ever!

The day after it was 450 tipsy ladies at Hardwick Hall Ladies Day to see Joseph Whelan and Brain McFadden – Maybe saying “anyone that wants a picture with them go to the back of the room” was a bit of a school boy error – I think we set a record for the biggest meet and greet line ever!!

October started in fine style with the brilliant Shayne Ward at The Princes Trust Charity Dinner in Gateshead – What a lovely man he is to work with, and his style and vocal range completely wowed the audience! Now into the first week of October and Moulin Music Management announces that we are now the proud management of X Factor star Kerrianne Covell – It’s been a couple of busy days for her bookings diary I can tell you!

Until the next time…
