What type of work are you looking for? Bar gigs or something more lucrative?
...i'm not at all fussy. we have to play as often as possible. that is all that really matters. the money is not a factor.

but this might be an opportunity to share information regarding booking agents.

I'll make a call and PM you with his info later tonight.

I can give you a few numbers of agents that book bars and festivals and whatnot. Most of the guys I deal with nowadays are booking tributes in Theaters and Casinos, I'm not sure if they are any good to you or not.

-dh[/QUOPerformerz.ca leaves a lot to be desired. They don't return calls, tell you they areg oing to do something, and generally just blow you off. My experience anyways.

...same here.

booking agents, like club owners, are a unique breed.

I'm really surprised there hasn't been a thread like this before!

There's always a strong need for bookings and management. Some of my customers would give their left nut and a sack of diamonds for someone who could help them with their career...:eek:

Oh yes!

The booking agent :bow:

weird how they forget they work for you:sport-smiley-002:


:food-smiley-004:
They don't work for musicians, they work for the venues. The money comes from venues, the musicians are just the product being sold (rented?)

That said, my band wouldn't be doing much without agent support. There ARE some really good ones out there. (at least here in the west!)

Funny how there aren't a lot of booking agents for bands advertising themselves on sites such as Overhear, Craigslist or http://toronto.communitymusician.com/

I guess there's not a lot of money in that line of work, especially considering all the complaints I hear from bands who use them. I've never experienced one but it would be nice to have someone else look out for us so that all we have to worry about is playing a good show.
