TSE is one of the most trusted full-service entertainment agencies in the United States. Established in 1975 as Texas Sounds Entertainment, it has been booking entertainers and providing production services for a variety of venues for over four decades. We do booking, sponsorship development, online ticketing, event promotion, local production, to complete turnkey concerts and festivals. Whatever you need, we can help.
Despite the more digital focus, TSE remains true to its founding principal:
Building and nurturing relationships with artists and promoters based on trust that endure over time.
The most important part of who we are, and why we continue to last when other agencies come and go is simply that we know what you want. We’ve seen it all in our 40 plus years of booking and handling production and logistics in a variety of venues. Relationships, just like reputations need to be built on trust. It takes time to get to know an artist, learn their needs, ambitions, and how they like to work.
Our job is not just to make you money, find work, and keep your interests at the forefront of negotiations, but also to is to make things operate smoothly for everyone involved.
It’s not something you can pick up in a month, or even a year. It takes seeing the best and the worst, in dive bars, and giant arenas in the Florida rain or Texas sun.Our experience as a booking agency has seen nearly every environment and equipment set-up imaginable and we continue to learn and adapt as new stages and technology evolve. As a testament to the quality of its services, some venues have been booking their acts with us for over 20 years; many others for over 15 years. Our testimonials and references speak to how well both venues and performers value the services we provide.
You deal with real people who want to win your trust and confidence. We pride ourselves in establishing long-term relations with the people we serve.
