The Event Music Company | The Finest Yorkshire Wedding Music

By Sarah Adams

The Event Music Company is Yorkshire’s Premier Live Music, Lighting and Production Company based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

This year they are celebrating a successful 20 years of business. Violinist, Chris Hilton started out the music company in 1999 as just a trio (violin, cello and piano) and string quartet, which later evolved into also offering jazz groups too.

The company’s swing band and DJ, soon developed into Chris Hilton’s Little Big Band. This can be completely tailored, carying in line-up from a five piece to a 20 piece. They now offer all production aspects too, including their own dance floors, lighting and complete project management.

The Event Music Company offers nothing less than the unique combination of exceptional live music and complete event production, run by their amazing dream team, Chris and Lucinda Hilton, violinist and cellist of Trio Vivo.

Our recent events of 2018 include:
