By pulling together a team of like-minded individuals The Music Consortium has very quickly developed into a brand that reflects our visionary approach in its delivery of event services to all sectors of the entertainment industry.

Spike has covered a wide variety of roles including Promoters Rep, Stage Manager, Tour Manager, Production Manager, Promoter, Artist Manager and Theatre Producer to name but a few. When not working Spike is a fully signed up Vinyl Junkie and needs to take several sabbaticals a year to feed his addiction.
Greg Hargraves – Director of Technical Support Services
Greg is a talented Yorkshire man with a flair for stage design and construction, Greg works closely with our crew and rules them with a fist of iron. He has worked in the industry for over 12 years working in a variety of roles from stage management to set carpentry, crew chief to site management and show calls to brew making (Yorkshire Tea only) to ensure that the events happen as planned. He spends nearly all his spare time attending BMX events and likes crashing into things.
Chantel Beaven – Operations Coordinator
Hailing from the south, Chantel joined The Music Consortium back in April 2015 and hasn’t looked back since. Chantel has 9 years’ professional experience working in the live events industry with a plethora of experience in production coordination, stage management, project management and events management. She works closely together with the rest of the team to ensure The Music Consortium stays ahead of the game, implementing key systems and protocols and developing them to make everyone’s life a little easier. She deals with all areas of the business, from talking to clients, crew, and making sure everyone (including the crew) keep their toes on the line. Chantel is a huge fan of the independent comic scene and can be found in a comic store near you rifling through the latest offerings in smutty tales of debauchery.
Jack Clayton – Operations Coordinator
Jack is the second member of our team from Yorkshire and joined The Music Consortium in 2018. He is our resident schmoozer and will do anything (within reason) to ensure our clients are happy with their TMC experience. Delivering rock ‘n’ roll events is in his DNA with a deep-rooted passion for working in the entertainment industry. His background and experience is varied working as a stage manager, gig promoter, truck packer, stage builder and an innate ability to recruit the best crewing talent from where ever they show their heads. When he’s not in TMC schmoozing mode he’s a drummer in a rock band so we know his timing is on the money.

Sam is a confident, self-motivated, hardworking individual who got sucked into her role after jumping right into the middle of the festival season five years ago.

Sam is an equine scientist and therefore loves all things horse related.
