organizing shows, along with putting together and transporting
a band can be a time consuming and frustrating experience.
But you have to play live and you need to reach as many
existing and new fans as possible.
Once you are offered a show you still
need to agree a payment and sort out a contract covering
ALL your performance costs.
The booking agent does not actually
put on shows. An agent acts as an intermediary between
the thousands of artists and the limited worldwide body
of promoters of concert venues, festival, clubs and
colleges. It is the agent’s job to negotiate deals
with the promoters based on what he or she knows of
the act’s needs, the city or venue he or she is
pitching to, and the relationship with the promoter.
Bands now see live performances as a primary source
of income as their recorded music revenues have
decreased and so tour to make money and not purely as
a promotional activity.
Once a period of gigging activity is agreed
with the artist and their management the agent will approach
promoters to arrange the actual shows. When booking shows,
the agent has to take into account geographical and seasonal
matters, staging needs as well as keep an eye on the competition.
By having a 'contracted local band', it will ensure
less travel cost as well as additional dollars needed for
hotels and equipment rental etc. Additionally this type of
planning has to be done well in advance (typically three
to four months) to ensure availability and better pricing
in the regions wanted.

If you expect to make a lot of money off concert tours,
you're likely to be disappointed. By the time the venue,
concert promoter and ticket vendor take their cuts, equipment
rentals and crew are paid, and transportation and living
costs are covered, there may not be as much as you'd expect.
That's not even considering sliding CD sales and the move
to digital music.

consider factors such as:

for you to step on stage and do what you do.

rigors of travel and the challenge of playing that material

There is no drama associated with players and the band will
deliver a fresh and exciting performance for you as needed.
- Are we getting enough
bookings and a strong enough response from fans to indicate
that the budget is right for a full band?
- In some cases we can help secure additional local date
and also help with promotion of the show as well.
