Thomas Farnell
Director

I started Entertainment Nation, with the aim being to build an agency entirely focused on providing the very best in customer service for all of our clients and the acts we represent. I'm very proud of the company and the team behind it who every day help me achieve that dream.

In my "spare" time I act as taxi service for my five boys. Yes, five.

Fictitious DJ Name:
DJ Tom Tom
Favourite Music Genre:
Rock n pop
Favourite Entertainment Nation Act and why:
Wandering Wings - I've seen Wandering Wings live many times and they never fail to blow me away with their choice of songs and musicality.
Dream Wedding Venue:
Lyde Court in Hereford. It's where I got married, and it was perfect.
Your Most Memorable Live Music Experience:
Before I started EN, I was a drummer in a folk/pop band and we were lucky enough to be invited to play on the Graham Norton show. It was the most incredible experience and definitely something I ticked off my bucket list!
Steven Robertson
Steven Robertson
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:
DJ Spatchcock
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.

Business Development Manager

Hey! I'm Jo, and I have the lovely job of getting to know lots of amazing businesses, and helping them make their events awesome! I love the relaxed, upbeat culture here. We're always so busy, but coffee, donuts and lots of music gets us through!

In my spare time I'm mainly found 'mumming' my two sassy little girls, or out walking my biggest baby; my gorgeous German Shepherd, Buddy. I find any excuse to book a spa day with the girls or a city break with the hubs. I like running, and my happy place is a cosy gin bar with a pink G&T.

Watching Oasis from a box at the Millennium Stadium was amazing! It was so cool to be able to watch the crowds belting out songs from above. Also, my wedding reception; our band were just brilliant, everyone loved them and it made our day to have everyone up dancing and enjoying themselves. I actually booked them through Entertainment Nation!

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!

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 had a wonderful evening, thank you. The band were absolutely fantastic! People didn't leave the dance floor all night and we had a great time. The band were helpful in their correspondence with us beforehand. They turned up early, set everything up and were ready to go when needed. The band helped make our evening reception really special and we are so glad we picked them. The playlists between were also a perfect mix of new and older tunes to get all generations dancing. 5/5. The booking process through entertainment nation was also great. You were very helpful in liaising with the band and getting us all the information we needed from the band such as insurance and certification for the venue. Overall very happy with the service!"
Aysa and Jake - Wedding - Stratford Upon Avon
"We were so incredibly pleased with the Dance Floor Fillers and Entertainment Nation. EN made it so easy to find entertainment for our wedding, not only was the website easy to navigate but all communication with Izzy was fast and easy. She was great to work with! The band themselves communicated with us before the wedding asking us all sorts of questions about song choices so that their sets were personal to us. I can't express enough how amazing this band is! Not only did they learn our first dance song for us but they kept the dance floor packed the entire night. We had the best evening and the Dancefloor Fillers were a major part of that. Highly recommend Entertainment Nation and Dancefloor Fillers. One million stars!"
Kathleen and Andrew - Wedding - Northumberland
"From the day we started planning our wedding, music was always going to be a huge thing and we were totally set on having a band. We looked on Entertainment Nation and saw The Rhythm Detectives. The type of music they played was right up our street so we booked them straight away. Everyone at Entertainment Nation was so helpful, providing us with everything I needed and consistently replying to me in really quick time no matter what time I emailed. It was great to speak to a member of the band before the big day so that we could make specific requests for certain songs. They created a perfect set list based on our requests and it was perfect. So many people came up to us after the gig on the day and said how great they were. They really made the night and their performance was perfect. The fact they were a great bunch of lads who were a pleasure to have at our wedding was the added bonus. Would recommend to anyone!"
Joe and Imogen - Wedding - Northamptonshire
"The band The Harriers were amazing, I could not rate them more. They were great with any specifications and really flexible with all of our requests. They helped us choose our first dance song and everything they played was fantastic. They went with the flow of the day using their initiative and checking with us that we were happy with all decisions that needed to be made. Both the vocals and instrumentals were on point and had everyone dancing all night. The Harriers were punctual and smart clearly taking pride in their performances. Would rate them 5 out of 5, thank you Harriers for contributing to our wedding day!"
Samuel and Tasmin - Wedding - Kent
"Taylor was simply fantastic. Great communication beforehand, and nothing was too much trouble. He has a laid back style which was great, and my mind was always at rest knowing that everything was under control. Everyone at our party absolutely loved the performance, especially those that were encouraged to join in a bit. What a voice! Taylor also wrote a personalised song for my wife which was fantastic and something that I'm sure we will listen to for the rest of our lives. I'm really pleased to have found Taylor. We've had so many complements about him from our guests."
William F - Party - Kent
"We had a great experience working with this band and they were perfect for our Wedding! The band were easy to communicate with and helpful in all our enquiries. The band learnt a specific song for our first dance which made it extra special for us (thank you!). The sound set up on the day was of high quality and awesome musicianship evident throughout the set. Alongside this the band were great company and fitted in well with our Wedding guests. Highly Recommend! Many Thanks, Alexandra and Will "
