Marketing Manager

I'm Steven, and I'm the Marketing Manager here at Entertainment Nation. I spread the word about the top talent available through Entertainment Nation and the amazing work done by our advisers, who make booking said talent such a painless process.

Outside of work? This is like the bit on your CV where you say you like "reading, exercise and socialising with friends". I like reading, exercise and socialising with friends. Also, I attempt to play the guitar and spend far too much time shepherding cats out of the kitchen when they know they're not supposed to go in the kitchen.

Fictitious DJ Name:

Favourite Music Genre:
Indie / Rock / Ambient
Favourite Entertainment Nation Act and why:
Cosmic Balloon, because of their unique style and impeccably curated repertoire.
Dream Wedding Venue:
I'm already married. The dream is over.
Your Most Memorable Live Music Experience:
After fastidiously learning all the words to the song as a teenager, finally seeing Rapper's Delight performed live by the Sugarhill Gang (minus Hank - R.I.P. Big Bank). The show was at 2pm on a very rainy afternoon, in front of a sparse and soggy Solihull crowd - not exactly how I imagined the moment - but the energy the guys put into the performance meant it was a life's ambition fulfilled.

Hey, I'm Alice and I work on the marketing team at Entertainment Nation. I love the variety of my work, with new projects and opportunities being thrown (not literally) around the office all the time. It's really exciting getting to try my hand at new things! Outside of work I'm a keen crime drama and psychological thrillers watcher, I'm always scrolling on Instagram and watching vloggers on YouTube, I love a long weekend city break and I'm a SERIOUS photograph hoarder – especially of my sausage dog, Penny!

Fictitious DJ Name:
DJ A-Sizzle
Favourite Music Genre:
Modern Pop and Soul Classics - you can't go wrong with a bit of Stevie Wonder!
Favourite Entertainment Nation Act and why:
La Grande! Predictably a pop, soul and Motown band - but they just look awesome, sound awesome and their groove is completely infectious.
Dream Wedding Venue:
A really picturesque barn venue with wooden beams and hanging lights, lots of flowers and plants and a BIG dance floor.
Your Most Memorable Live Music Experience:
I went to see Taylor Swift at the Reputation Tour at Wembley Stadium and remember myself and my friends shouting the lyrics (not in the correct key) and just dancing all night. The best thing was, the whole stadium, all 60K-70K people were doing exactly the same. Ultimate party!

When I was 17 I won tickets from a radio station to see Kings of Leon, myself and my friend also ended up getting given tickets to the after party and meeting the band. We got on with them so well that we were on their tour bus till 5am playing on the xbox and eating jelly tots! A very surreal evening!

"We were so happy we chose The Lightmen for our wedding. They absolutely made the evening party by planning an excellent set which had all of our guests, from 5 year olds to 75 year olds, dancing all night. The energy and enthusiasm The Lightmen put into their performance was incredible - we don't think their promo video does them justice! Many of our guests commented on how much they loved the band. Communication before the wedding was clear and easy and the guys were able to work to our venue's requirements. We highly recommend them!"
Tara & David - Wedding - Cumbria
"We used Entertainment Nation to look for musicians to play at our staff party, as it was our 100 year anniversary and we have a vast range of ages that work within the store it was very difficult to choose an act suitable to everyone. Our contact Joe was very patient and helpful with our indecisiveness and he ended up finding the perfect act for our event, Vermillion. Vermillion were amazing, they set up with no hassle, we wanted them to arrive earlier to set up and then come back to perform as we didn't want them to be setting up as people were eating, they were happy to do so and were very professional, polite and chatty. The overall performance was just what we hoped for, they played more chilled out music for the last two courses of our meal then upped them tempo and played music so our staff could have drinks and a dance. We would definitely hire them again in the future and would recommend other companies to use Entertainment Nation if they are ever in need to hire performing acts."
Trudy - Corporate - Berkshire
"What can I say about Pippa other than she made the party! She was approachable, friendly, flexible and very professional. I had lots of comments on how brilliant she was and how they loved the eclectic playlist she performed. I would definitely give her 5 out of 5 and would not hesitate to book Pippa or use Entertainment Nation again for future events. The service has been exceptional from start to finish and made booking entertainment very easy. Thank you for helping to make my birthday party amazing Many thanks Amy"
Amy - Party - Shropshire
"Dance Floor Fillers were amazing, delivered exactly what I had asked for from the day. From the initial contact 4 weeks prior to the wedding they couldn't do enough to help. From arranging and discussing playlists to timings and contacting our wedding coordinator at the venue, they were genuinely just a really nice group of lads. They nailed the performance and kept people on the dance floor through the night. Easily a 5 out of 5 and would highly recommend them to anyone."
Adam & Rebecca - Wedding - Lincolnshire
"Night and Day were an excellent addition to our wedding festivities. From the moment they began playing they really set the tone for a fabulous celebration. We wanted a jazz set and they duly obliged playing the modern jazz sound my wife and I both love and they played beautifully. Beforehand we asked them to learn a couple of Swedish classics and many of the Swedes who flew over to London for the event were really touched that such an effort was made. We are totally happy with their performance and it was great value for money. They were punctual especially considering it was difficult to get to the venue due to the Lord Mayor's Show and they dressed just as we wanted. I only wish I had another event so I could have an excuse to hire them again. They were that good! Also, thanks to Entertainment Nation for all their help with the booking. 5 out of 5 stars."
Rodney - Wedding - London
"We found Entertainment Nation to be very proactive in communicating with us and also flexible during the booking process, they contacted us in the run up to our wedding without the need for us to chase them - making the process stress free. The Peaky Blinders were a phenomenal band, their communication and service in the run up to our wedding was brilliant - they were flexible around our timings and on the night delivered a fault free performance, every single one of our guests commented on how amazing they were! We would recommend them to anybody looking for an acoustic duo for their wedding - the DJ service they offer is also to be recommended. They emailed us their version of our first dance, answered any questions we had and even performed some extra requested songs on the night. Flawless!"
Henrietta & Christopher - Wedding - Ipswich
