Hi, I’m Mark! I began Music Newcastle in 2013 to first of all provide the most flexible, high qualitycollective of musicians in the North East. It was important to not just provide the best in live music for special occasions. In addition I wanted to use my extensive experience as a musical director and arranger to provide a range of musical services whatever the project.
Everyone at Music Newcastle is determined to break all of the musician stereotypes. As a result you will get a reply within 24 hours to any communication, often much sooner. We pride ourselves on being reliable, polite, and I only hire the very best musicians with huge professional experience.
Personally, I’ve played piano for more than 30 years, and have worked with people as varied as Faye Tozer (Steps) and black metal band Winterfylleth. Not only have I written arrangements for the Sunday for Sammy show with Lindisfarne, I’ve also given Lenny Henry piano lessons! My extensive choir work as a musical director has included Royal Northern Sinfonia, BBC, and Inspiration UK. I’ve performed for hundreds of weddings and toured a comedy musical with Alfie Joey. Now I want to work with YOU.
How can I help?
