A North East music management company is planning to expand thanks to ever growing demand for local talent from within the region and throughout the UK.

PR9.NET November 11, 2009 - A North East music management company is planning to expand thanks to ever growing demand for local talent from within the region and throughout the UK.

North East based Hip Operation plans to recruit two full time and two part time staff during the run-up to Christmas and further intends to double the number of artists represented from around one hundred to two hundred within six months.

Hip Operation was founded by rock drummer Steve Dolder in 2003. What began as an informal network of musicians who would cover for each other in the event of a double booking has grown into one of the regions largest professional music management companies.

The artists represented range from solo singers and performers, through string quartets and pipers to rock, pop and tribute bands. The expansion has come about since Hip Operation extended its territory from Newcastle and South Northumberland to cover the whole of the North East from Berwick upon Tweed to the North Yorkshire border.

The company is unusual in that it is run by professional musicians who have learned management skills, rather than professional managers who have learned the music business.

Owner Steve Dolder says:

"We are expanding due to requests from musicians all over the region. Our success seems to be based on the fact that we are musicians offering professional representation to fellow musicians. We know what the job is like because we have been there and are still performing. Hip Operation started out as a sort of self help group for musicians fed up with management who were only interested in their commission and we have tried to maintain that friendly but professional ethos. Now, if a client wants a particular type of music and our local guys are booked, we can find an alternative from within the region".
