Over the best part of 30 years. Irrespective of the project or organisation I have always found Steve extremely, organised, professional and always delivers over and above what is asked / promised. – Ian Huffam – Director X Ray Touring – Agent for Robbie Williams, Blur, The Specials, New Order I have worked with Steve in promoting most of the Artists in our roster and he has always delivered everything and more that a Music Manager requires from a Promoter/Event Organiser. In particular when working on High Voltage Festival Steve took the lead in delivering what was a unique festival experience for artists/customers alike. It is fair to say that without Steve I very much doubt if the festival would have happened. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve and his team. – Martin D'Arvill – QED Management - Asia, Emmerson Lake & Palmer, Uriah Heep Having worked with Richard & Steve for over 20 years through their various roles and I can honestly say that they have consistently delivered great events & venues. Whilst always driving a hard but fair deal they remained focussed on ensuring we delivered a quality event / venue build without compromising either the show or ourselves. Always a pleasure to work with. – Andy Dockerty – Managing Director Adlib Audio When it came to delivering our new London Venture (Electric), we immediately contacted Steve to deliver the refurbishment and programme the venue. As always with Steve and his team, this was delivered to budget on time and to the highest possible standards. I would not hesitate in recommending VMS if you need a venue/music solution specifically tailored to your requirements. – Dominic Madden - CEO Kingdom Entertainment, owner Electric Brixton When ARC were looking for a partner company to deliver Live Events I was happy to suggest VMS. Having known Steve for over a decade from his time as a Director at AMG, I felt comfortable that VMS would be able to source and deliver acts/events to a high standard. In working with me and my staff at Uttoxeter, the VMS team were incredibly helpful throughout the process from budget and artist booking through to on the day event management. At every step taking the time to work with us on all aspects of delivery of the event. This was particularly important to us as UB40 was the first major outdoor event at Uttoxeter. Steve, Richard and the staff were constantly available for us to call upon for advice and help, dealing with artist, agents and production ensuring that even late changes in plan were accommodated smoothly into the event plan. The event itself was a huge success for all involved and we are already planning our 2015 strategy. Overall, if you are looking for an organisation to deliver your event for you, I would not hesitate to suggest VMS. – David Macdonald - Executive Director, Uttoxeter Racecourse
