“Mane Events vision is to be the BEST boutique music solutions and events agency in Newcastle and the Hunter. We aim to bring fun, energy and excitement to every event that we are apart of as well as tailoring a musical package to your needs.”


Mane Events is a music solutions and events business, with many satisfied and returning customers from all over Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Central Coast and the East Coast.




Although not officially operating under the Mane Events name until June 2012, owner Ryan Meredith has been in the DJing and entertaining business for the past 11 years. During that time he has been a resident DJ at some of the best clubs and bars in both Newcastle and British Columbia, Canada. He has played on the main stage at two festivals; organised and performed at countless birthday parties, engagement parties, formals/graduations, fashion parades, weddings and corporate events. He has even had time to complete a Bachelor of Communications (Media Production) and a Master of Marketing (with Merit) at the University of Newcastle.




Ok, that’s enough of talking about myself in the third person...



In the beginning I intended on buying turntables to practice at home and feed my passion for music. However, that hobby quickly grew into an obsession for music and entertaining, firstly just for my friends and then for weekly club-goers and professional businesses such as Newcastle Permanent, Newcastle Jockey Club and Newcastle Panthers.

I have had the privilege of DJing on a weekly basis at some of the best venues in Newcastle, including Queens Wharf Brewery, Customs House, CBD Hotel, Fanny’s Newcastle, Cambridge, Bar on the Hill and Civic Hotel. My time and dedication to my craft has also given me supporting gigs alongside some great Australian artists including Ladyhawke, Birds of Tokyo, Bag Raiders, The Aston Shuffle, Triple J’s Nina Las Vegas and many more.

Mane Events was therefore born out of my passion for playing music and entertaining any type of crowd. I value my people skills, which results in a more tailored and personal music solution for your event, while also delivering greater value for money. I will work closely with you leading up to your special event to:
