Booking takes dedication to the craft. You need to know what is best for the band and artist and what is best for the venue/festival.
To be honest, it can be a lot of back and forth, and sometimes, you do not always get what you want. Booking is an art. Each booked show expresses respect and dedication to the artist/bands that you work for.
Let me work for you. Traditionally, income for a booking agent is on a commission basis (percentage). I am traditional and charge a percentage for each event booked for an artist and/or band. Let's chat it up.
