Whether a corporate event, public indoor concert, or an outdoor concert that’s part of a major fair or festival, the venue is very important in deciding what is needed for a successful event. For any venue, there are four key pieces that need to come together for a really great show. All the other equipment and people needed support these four pieces.
- The Right Entertainer(s)
- Striking Staging
- Good Sound Quality
- Dramatic Lighting
Venue & Promoter Booking: Agency Services
It all starts with booking the right entertainer!
Is your venue in need of an experienced and trusted partner to handle booking and logistics?
If so, then TSE is the ideal agency to complement your team. We book for the whole range of entertainment venues, from private parties to large arenas and everything in between. We book major international talent as well as regional entertainers for your events. We also handle all the production and performance logistics you need to supplement your own resources in putting on great performances.
We are entertainment professionals with over 120 years in the music business. We know what artists are suitable for each kind of venue. We also know which ones show up on time and deliver the kind of performance you want.
We supplement our knowledge with research on tour histories. We look at things like their ticket pricing, how well they fill seats and whether venues have had any issues with entertainers before we recommend them to you.
Whether your event is large or small; whether it is a private party or public concert; whether it is for a corporate event or your daughter’s Quinceañeras; whether it’s an outdoor festival or an indoor reception; in our four decade history we’ve handled the entertainment for it.

We work in either capacity to match artist entertainers with your booking needs. From there we negotiate on your behalf to get the best entertainment and best price for your event.
Why Exclusive Representation Works for You!
TSE is in it for the long haul, building relationships based on trust and service with the venues and promoters with which we work. Most of our venues, have been with us for years…some approaching 30 years. That speaks volumes about why they trust us to handle their events year-round. When one performance ends, we start working on the next one. Over time, we come to thoroughly know the venue or promoter and their wish list. We also know the entertainers that are a good fit for their requirements.
Your time, as well as your staff’s time is valuable. TSE works as an extension or your staff. We handle the phone calls and emails from agents and managers who may or may not be the kind of act you desire. We do the research and present well-suited options to you for your final decisions. We do the work and you have the peace of mind of knowing that the acts have been thoroughly vetted before we recommend them. Once you decide, we do the booking contract and rider negotiation and the services listed below. You do as much or as little as you want for your show.
Our fees are built into the quote we give you. You won’t find “extra” fees added on unless you ask us to take on other parts of your show after the initial quote, e.g., providing seating, tents, electricity, etc. In those cases, you will be presented with the breakdown of costs in advance so you can approve them.
TSE Can Save You Money: When it comes right down to the bottom line, TSE saves you money! Even after our fee, most clients come to realize that they are saving money. That’s right. If you wanted to take on what TSE does for yourself, you would find that the quotes you get would be equal to or more than TSE quotes for the same entertainers and services.
There’s a lot of work to putting on a concert or artist performance. Trying to do it yourself means you are committing huge amounts of your and your staff’s time. That’s money out of your pocket and time you probably don’t have with your current schedules. Think about it. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the advantage of hiring TSE to help you plan and book the entertainment that makes your show a success.
TSE can save you as much as 20% of the costs of putting a show on yourself.
Peace of Mind: One more time. TSE saves you money while doing all the tasks that go into making a successful event. If you aren’t convinced, take a look at the list of services outlined above. Now imagine all the meetings, phone calls, emails, texts that are needed to assure a smoothly run show from preplanning to the performance itself. Do you really want to do that? Let TSE do it and give you the peace of mind knowing that your gig is being run by a professional booking agency that has been doing it for over four decades.
