Booking Agent for Events

4 Reasons Why You Need a Booking Agent for Your Event

Back to News & Events

Are you planning a big event with live music or other entertainment? Are you struggling to find the right band for your event? Are you overwhelmed with overseeing all the details of hiring a band?

Booking agencies can ease your worries by providing a wide variety of music and other entertainment options for you. They take care of all the details, so you won’t have to worry. You can enjoy your big event, whether it is a wedding, reception, festival, fair, club, corporate event, Quinceañera, private event or backyard BBQ party. Here’s how a booking agent can help you with the event and save you money at the same time!

First, they have access to numerous bands who play any genre from Red Dirt Country to traditional Country, Tejano, Rock ‘n Roll, Americana, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, Island-Reggae, Tropical Steel Drum, German Polka, Blue Grass, Classical or a bit of everything! They can find the right band for your event.

Second, they will take care of the contract details, including what the band may need in the way of staging, lighting, backline equipment (speakers, drum kits, etc.), monitors, plus any food, drinks, hotel rooms and/or transportation needed by the band members. For large events, these details can be numerous, and it may take more than one person to see to all their needs. That is where booking agents comes to the rescue! You won’t have to worry about the music while you enjoy your event. You can also spend your time working on other details, not the music entertainment.

Third, a reputable booking agent with long established relationships with both clients and the music industry, may be able to book a specific band for a cheaper price than you would without a booking agency. They can potentially save you money for your event! Plus, an agent may have good contacts with sound and staging companies, which may also save you additional money. That’s right, a good agency should save you money and resources even with their fees.

Fourth and lastly, a good entertainment booking agent will give you “Peace of Mind.” When selecting a booking agent, ask them if they will complete the contracting, send emails to the bands, confirm details, contact bands a day before the gig to ensure that everything is proceeding properly. If it’s for a large event, will they provide someone onsite to manage the band, staging, sound systems, band meet ‘n greets, and schedule to provide you with seamless, well-executed music entertainment!

One of the things you should look for when selecting an entertainment booking company is how long they have been in business. Chances are, an agency that’s been around for over 40 years, must be doing right by their clients. Don’t be afraid to ask them if they carry out their work based on the four things listed in this post.
