Our “Job” and function is to find just the right Band, Recording Artist, Comedian, Celebrity, Vocalist, DJ or Full Orchestra for your event at the best available price. We pride ourselves in representing YOU, the buyer, unlike many major agencies who aggressively promote their in-house artists.
Over 20 years of dealing with Artists and their agents have enabled us to establish a repore with them that makes it easier to deliver your requirements within your budget.
Whether you are a novice or a pro at booking and buying Entertainment, we will simplify your task so that at “Showtime”, you may even be able to take a seat and enjoy the show. You are going to like the way we work!
The reason for the event, amount to be raised, budget, the date for the event (with an alternative date if possible), the target audience, the place where it will be held and most important…the artist or act that will headline the show, all need to be addressed.
Whew! That’s a lot of planning… but that’s what it takes to put on a successful concert that will produce the desired rewards. Basically, this is “concert promotion 101.” However, there will be major differences, depending of course, on the first item to be considered…the reason for the event. You will see many differences in the application when we discuss some of the other areas for planning concerts in the pages that follow.
Concert Promotion can best be managed with a business plan
which will provide the answer to that important question…
“Why and how are we planning this concert?”
Once you have the answer…all the other items will be decided
with the successful outcome uppermost in mind.
What Kind of Entertainment “Turns You On”?
Article by Guy Citrinite
You might ask, what is entertainment? It ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime. A prime example is found in the lyrics of the well known song “That’s Entertainment”, which answers this question. Here are the starting lyrics:
“The clown with his pants falling down…”
“Or the dance that’s a dream of romance…”
“Or the scene where the villain is mean,”
See what I mean? Can’t you just picture the scenes described in the lyrics? If you know the tune, I’ll bet you are singing it. Judy Garland used to and Tony Bennett does now.
Entertainment is such a broad subject that it must be broken down into dozens of categories because what pleases and delights, is really in the eyes and ears of the beholder.
Where do you fit in…what are your favorites? A seasoned professional booking agent might say, I don’t care about the clown but I love Tony Bennett. After 20 years in the business, he might tell you that tastes are definitely varied and so are the reasons for booking and buying all the different acts, artists, bands, groups, comedians, tributes, etc.
Do you find yourself in any of these situations?
Your company is planning an upcoming event such as a kickoff, convention, new product launch, promotion, retirement party, birthday party….Does it require entertainment? Who or what should you hire…speaker, famous music artist, comedian, dance band, tribute act…what would be best…what is your budget?
You are looking to book a concert do you book a soloist or a band, a big name artist or a rock group, is the theme country or contemporary, will it be held in a theater, stadium or club, what age groups are you catering to?
