About TSE

TSE is one of the oldest and most trusted entertainment booking agencies in the United States. Established in 1975 as Texas Sounds Entertainment, it has been booking local, regional and national entertainers for a variety of venues for over four decades.

  • One of the oldest and most trusted booking agencies in the U.S.
  • Delivers quality acts and performance support services
  • Real, no pressure, people whose goal is building trust and a long-lasting relationship

As Texas Sounds Entertainment grew beyond its Texas roots, it evolved into TSE and ushered in a period of national expansion. The change also ushered in the adoption of state-of-the-art digital platforms that provide a host of features for our artists and venues to promote and keep track of their gigs.

  • We Remain True to Our Founding Principal
    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.
  • We Know What You Want: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.
  • We Make Sure Everything Goes Smoothly
    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.

    • Venues expect us to deliver quality acts that show up ready to do their job.
    • They expect us to stand behind our services and have the components in place to allow the best performance possible.
  • Experience Matters:
    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.
  • We Are Real People Who Want to Help
    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.
  • We Are a Great Agency For Artists As Well As VenuesTSE is a great agency for established performers looking to grow their number of bookings. We can be a RA or a booking agency for rising stars as well as well-known entertainers. We can handle as little or as much production support as you need for your performances.We also have long established relationships with venues who need us to provide first-class entertainment and handle the logistics of their concerts or events. Just tell us how we can help you put on a quality show for your audience.
