About Us

“Anne & Phil’s joint understanding of ‘the business’ makes the company what it is today”

MBM started life way back in the early 90’s. Phil Barrett had been a successful international musician and record-producer, his wife Anne owned a couple of happening wine bars and restaurants. Together with this knowledge, Anne and Phil are the very knowledgable backbone of  MBM.


“To provide entertainment solutions and ideas that exceed expectations…”

These days we act as an entertainment consultancy and artiste management company. We provide tailored solutions both for our clients and our artistes that take into account all factors and all budgets. We are experts at providing exactly the right entertainment solution.


“We still find the time to be thoroughly nice and 100% professional people!”

It’s not difficult to be a nice person, but some people and companies seem to throw up so many obstacles. At MBM we try to make everything completely simple. From the initial consultation, through contracting and payment right through to the performance itself… and we stay nice people all of the time!

Our Journey

MBM Expands

The beginning of 2018 sees the expansion of MBM. New regional offices will be opening throughout the UK.

MBM goes Mobile

July/August sees the launch of our all-new website which has been developed to be 100% mobile-friendly. A functional MBM app is also in the planning…

MBM moves house

Anne & Phil move from Calliards Farm to Healey Dell Nature Reserve and start converting part of the old military buildings into offices. It’s hard work… but the business is growing…

MBM office

The one-tiny-room on the top floor moves to two proper offices on the ground floor at International House on Drake St., Rochdale. Anne and Phil are in business for real.

MBM starts booking

Without an office, Phil starts to book more than just his own band (TFB) into a number of venues. It’s music-only – a few bands and a few pubs, but it’s a start.

It's Friday 1:45 AMOur office is closed now but you can send us an email and we will get back to you on the following morning.
