How did Bands for Hire start and how long has the business been going?

Having spent over 10 years performing in a wedding band and also working as a freelance web developer in the week, starting a live music agency seemed like the obvious next step.

Having started out as a bedroom business six years ago, the company has gone from strength to strength and we’re now a team of four, booking thousands of events each year.
