It is so easy in this day and age to find and secure musicians and disc jockeys directly through their websites. Why would anyone want to introduce an intermediary and book through a music agency? Will it not just add an additional expense the cost of the event?
Clients often ask us these questions. Our response always addresses the quality, security and service booking through Music Management provides.
Music Management Quality: We subject the artists on our roster to a strict screening policy for not only level of quality but also look, dependability and personality. They must play exceptionally well, but also understand that at an event they are part of a service team of vendors all working together to create a successful event.
Music Management Security: In addition to being licensed and insured, when the client’s contract is with Music Management, it becomes our responsibility to insure that the artists perform at the event.
Music Management Service: Our staff is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week either during regular office hours or via cell phone during evenings and weekends. We respond to inquiries and questions no later than 24 hours after they are received.
What about the expense?
In many cases it might actually be less expensive to use Music Management since we have more leverage to negotiate for a lower rate with our regular artists since we provide them with so much work throughout the year. There is a commission built into our fees, but in most cases it is the same rate that you would receive if you were to book directly through the artist.
