Music Business Management Limited – MBM to our friends – is one of the biggest entertainment consultancies and artiste management companies in the UK today. Based north of Manchester, our entertainment agency has a permanent staff of 5 – all with a deep understanding of the music and entertainment business. MBM entertainment consultancy has now been trading for over 20 years and has accrued a wealth of knowledge. Clients and venues that book entertainment from MBM do not just get the services of a regular entertainment agency, they receive an undiluted, unbiased, genuine music management approach to assess their entertainment requirements and to incorporate their budgets – all the while making sure that the quality of entertainment being supplied and the quality of Music Business Management’s service is absolutely paramount. The artiste management side of the business concentrates on acquiring the very best artistes to the MBM stable. For the last ten years, this side of the business has been heavily involved with the management of Tribute Artistes to suit the current marketplace, but our managed artistes cover many other genres too.
MBM is a £1m+ business booking in excess of 8,000 events each year – from small intimate gatherings to large corporate events. The man and wife team of Anne and Phil Barrett has always been ‘in the business’. Phil was a successful international musician and multi-awarded record-producer in the 1980’s and Anne owned a couple of happening wine bars and restaurants. Their joint understanding of ‘the business’ makes the company what it is today.
Anne Barrett, M.D. of MBM, is currently Chairman of the The Entertainment Agents’ Association Ltd of Great Britain.
Philip Barrett of MBM, was elected onto Council of the The Entertainment Agents’ Association Ltd of Great Britain in March 2013.
