Ross Sykes had a phenomenal career from 1981 – 1999 as he worked on board the QE2 and employed directly by Cunard Line Ltd. He’s had the pleasure in performing in some prestigious events & venues thanks to his fantastic management team looked after Ross superbly and gave him some privileges with performing alongside some legends inc Sir John Mills.

In 2002 Ross formed Mike Russ Entertainments UK and over the years the company grew and in 2010 Ross formed Mike Russ Entertainments (MRE) Group Ltd, the brand that customers can completely rely on to be supplied first class entertainment. Under the Group is Mike Russ Entertainments UK Agency, M R Tributes UK Agency and Mike Russ Artiste Management. MRE Group are a Live Music Booking Agency that you can trust.

Our customer service support package is equally as professionals as our performers and is second to none! Most Agencies will charge you a “handlers fee” normally £180 if they are providing a celebrity or a member of their own staff if you have booked several acts. Here at Mike Russ Entertainments (MRE) Group Ltd, which Mike Russ Entertainments UK comes under doesn’t charge. Its part of our support package, we will check in all the performers  in as per arrival time on the events detail sheet, we will ensure set up and checks goes as smoothly as possible and make sure everything back stage i.e meals ect are served on time. We also make sure they are ready to go on stage at exact time as agreed. Any issues or problems will be dealt with by the Agent and once resolved report back to you. All this leaves you to entertainment your guests etc and not having the burden of the entertainers.

Every Event or Wedding that we provide entertainment for will be the performance of their lifetime and will astound your guests. From the minute you are making a booking with us till the day after the event we will speak to you and your feedback. All our performers are full time professionals and hand-picked by Ross. We only work with people who have real passion and dedication and wanting to grow their career. Some have been on TV and most have performed at high profile events. This is the winning formula knowing your events entertainment is going to be a huge hit with your guests.

On the day of the event or wedding you don’t have to worry about the entertainment as either I or a member of my team will take care of the whole entertainment. We will check in our performers and get them organised and once they are on stage performing, we then quietly disappear and this service is completely free.

I celebrate 34 years being in the Industry on the 7th December on the same day I turn 50 and I still have the great passion now as when I started. All bookings are contracted between the booker and the performers and myself, which confirms the booking made with us. All of our performers and acts are highly professional and been with me for many years and have never let me down.

Making a booking with Mike Russ Entertainments UK; you are guaranteed you are getting exactly what you require and that the performers are professionals and are experience.

“A professional service throughout; in particular Ross at Mike Russ Entertainments kept in regular contact before and after the event, and Jon Moses was SUPERB. I look forward to working with both Jon and Ross in the future.”

“Fantastic service all round, communications brilliant- thanks Mike, friendly polite informative NO lies and they don’t try and fob you off with another act. Definitely not back street artists. We had a Michael Buble who surpassed all expectations, it was for a hen night and he got everyone up and dancing and singing with him just super- thanks Luke. We have big birthday’s coming up and first stop will be Mike Russ. We would recommend them one million percent!! “
