Venues We Work With

Tate Music supplies live entertainment to many venues across North East England.

We’ve worked with some large organisations, such as North Tyneside Council, Newcastle United FC and Newcastle University, right down to smaller restaurants and bars such as The One Eyed Stag Micropub and Sambuca Italian Restaurants.

We pride ourselves and providing good quality entertainment, which is all vetted through our musician development program where we help acts to improve their skills and be better prepared to entertain any crowd.

Case Study – The One Eyed Stag Pub

We have supplied live music every Sunday to this small friendly pub for over 5 years. The ‘Sunday Sessions’ have become a staple event in the Whickham community, bringing together local people to chat, grab a drink and enjoy some live music.

We offer a different act each week, then leave it up to the feedback from customers to decide who plays in future. We also introduce new acts to a venue to keep things fresh and to keep customers coming back again and again.

What Will Work Best For You?

Live entertainment will always create a buzz for your venue or event, but picking the right type is vital to making it a success.

Small Pubs/Restaurants

We recommend a solo act for your venue as they don’t take up vital table space, and the volume is totally manageable so your guests can still enjoy each other’s company for example.

✅ Solo Acts

Larger Pubs/Bars

You generally have the space and budget for something more fun, so you may find a duo is more suitable and having a second musician playing extra instruments such as percussion makes your venue so much more livelier. You may even find putting a full band on once a month is great for business, and gives your punters something to look forward to, at the end of each month for example (think pay-day weekend!).

Event Entertainment

✅ Solo Acts

✅ Duos

✅ Cover Bands

✅ DJ/Disco

We also find DJs work great at a lot of bigger pubs, such as a 1980’s themed night to keep your guests in all night.

Garden Party

If you’re having friends and family over for a special occasion, our solo acts are versatile and can perform outside at your event. Just run an extension lead outside and they will be good to go. consider having a marquee to prevent rain ruining your party.
