Live music in Leicestershire is thriving with many talented musicians playing at public venues and private events across the county.

DG Music is proud to work with the very best of these Leicestershire bands to showcase their talents to a wider audience.

Our director David Graham grew up in Leicestershire and now lives and works just across the border in Rutland, giving us great insight into the county’s music scene and an excellent working relationship with its top venues. David, who is a saxophonist and pianist, also played with one of Leicester’s most successful bands, Showaddywaddy, from 2009-2011.

Many of DG Music’s exclusive acts are Leicester bands which cover a wide spectrum of musical genres including pop, rock, soul and even ceilidh music.  Being centrally based in the East Midlands, many of them are well placed to travel to events across the whole of the UK.
