How do I book an artist at my venue or event?
Send an email to the responsible agent (listed on each artist’s page) with as much information as possible about the venue or event. You may also submit an inquiry using the form at the top of the page. The following questions are a good start:
What band(s) are you interested in?
Where do you book shows?
What are the names and website of the venue?
What is the capacity on venue?
What are the expenses on venue?
What sort of PA and stage do you have?
What is the age limit on venue?
Is it a bar, art space, etc?
What type of advertising do you employ to promote your shows?
What acts have you booked there in past? Elsewhere?
What is a phone number and email where you can be reached?
How do I book an artist at my college?
Where is your school located?
What venue/s do you use?
What is the stage/PA like there?
What date/s do you have available?
Are your shows free or ticketed?
Are they open to the public or students only?
What is your approximate budget?
What other artists has your school/organization booked recently?
Do you want to book my band?
We strive for long-lasting, meaningful relationships with our clients. While we love to hear new stuff and appreciate your interest in working with us, we are not only extremely selective in who we choose to represent, but also very limited in how much time we have to explore new music. We wish we could help every band whose music we love, but unfortunately it’s just not that simple. There are a myriad of factors that we take into account before signing a new artist. Primarily, if you have not played outside of your town extensively or booked your own tour, it is highly unlikely that we would consider you. While that may sound strange, we recommend that all acts book their own tours initially if only to experience what it’s like. If you’re going to have someone handle your touring it’s a good idea to know what they will be doing for you. Secondly, we make our living on a percentage of your touring income. If you haven’t played around much, well, we really don’t want to take your gas and food. There are of course exceptions to the rules. If you are signed to a well known label, have obtained some national press, have a publicist in place, have gotten airplay, etc. we may be interested even if you have little touring history.
All that said, we DO NOT accept unsolicited demos.
Can my band open for one of your artists?
In general, our bands choose their opening acts themselves and have at least a handful of ideas before we even begin booking their tour. We understand how hard it is for a band starting out, believe us, but nothing good comes easy! The band that forms and goes out on huge tours right away is an anomaly, so you won’t be the first or last. Most successful bands will tell you that they worked themselves like crazy to get people to listen and come to shows. The best bit of advice we can give you is to think small. Start in the closest metropolitan area that bands you like come to. Play small shows. Play shows with other local bands. Hell, play anywhere that people will see you! Build an audience and don’t be discouraged if it takes time. Prove to the people that book the venues around town that you can get people in their door and the next time they have local support slots for a national band your phone might ring (having them like you helps!). That’s the way you’ll get on shows with bands like ours, and possibly have a chance to give them a CD or chat.
