We are Tees Music Alliance a charitable organisation operating for the benefit of musicians, their audiences, supporting industries and community groups.
Our primary focus is to play our part in building a thriving live music scene in Teesside - underpinned with a strong sense of social responsibility. We do this through our premises and activities - which are run on a not-for-profit basis, with all income being re-cycled to provide other services and events.
Much of what we do is done to help develop our local music infrastructure - artists, songwriters, musicians, promoters, other venues, event organisers, record labels, producers... the list goes on.
We provide opportunities for volunteers to get involved with what we do and we welcome their contributions and enthusiasm.
Our premises and activities include a Recording & Rehearsal facility Green Dragon Studios, two Live music venues The Georgian Theatre and The Green Room and a music festival Stockton Calling – a multi-venue spanning music spectacular that takes place in the heart of Stockton on Tees.
Artists looking to play at one of our venues or events should read this advice page before contacting us. Artists can also add their details to our ever-growing Music Activist Directory by clicking HERE.
In 2017 our wonderful venue, The Georgian Theatre, re-opened following a £1.4M refurbishment... the theatre now has its own website - which can be accessed HERE

We've seen some fantastic artists - established and emerging - play at our venues over the years; with lots more to come. Visit The Georgian Theatre's pages for more details.
Tees Music Alliance is overseen by a small board of trustees who volunteer their time to ensure that our staff team are supported in the day to day running of our premises, projects and services. Our trustees bring a range of skills to TMA from their everyday lives and we have a wealth of experience from music, universities, business, publishing, health and local government If you have a particular skill to offer and would like to know more about becoming a trustee; please drop us an email HERE.
In the wake of Covid-19 restrictions, we have published an update page HERE
We have also published a PAGE signposting musicians towards various offers of help and support from the wider music industry.
