Venue Management Assistance | artist bookings and appearances

It is our pleasure to assist venues when it comes to managing your artist bookings and appearances. Our services include reviewing artists, marketing your shows, graphic design, poster/leaflet distribution, website management, street team, social networking, negotiating artist fees, and balancing the desires of the artists you hire, and the real world needs of your venue.

We realize that profit is the name of the game, and we do our best to help you improve your bottom line, as well as ensure the artistic quality of your venue’s offerings. We also charge some of the lowest commission fees in the industry.

The name of the game is "Business Development." We have over thirty years of brand marketing experience under our belt. We'd love your consideration, and an opportunity to represent your establishment. Venue owners/managers appreciate the fact that we know our bands, that we own our own professional audio systems, and have professional audio engineers on staff, we have logistics managers on staff, that we own our own electrical generators (allowing you to hold your event in places where electricity isn't available) and much more. We are the only agency in our region capable of delivering everything you require with just one call (or email).

We take our responsibility seriously. Always have. Always will.
