Developing Your Roster (Part 4)

Winning

A roster should develop its own identity. Talent buyers will remember good rosters and the agents that run them. This will make it easier for the agent to develop their network.

Developing Your Roster (Part 1)

Agent goals

A good roster will have an identity of its own. It will form a cohesive group of artists and the agent will become known for the artists they work with. This will make the agent’s work less chaotic and reduce the number of talent buyers they need to work with.

Show Deals – An Overview

Percentage balloons

What it says on the tin! In this post we go through the five most common types of deals that music booking agents strike with promoters. Agents need to know when to use each type of deal and understand what they mean for their artists’ income.

What we do and what we don’t do

Job description

Different agencies offer different services. So when an artist joins an agency, whether it is for the first time or from another agency, it is really important that they understand what services the agency offers and what the artist and their management need to organise themselves.

The Payment Schedule

Cash register

When we make an agreement between the artists and the purchaser then both parties agree that a show will take place on a certain day in the future. If that show doesn’t happen, then a day is missed in the artists diary – this results in significant loss of potential earnings for the artist – and by extension the agency as well. A well considered Payment Schedule can reduce the likelihood of cancellation and assure payment where shows are cancelled.

The importance of advancing a show

Sometimes when a band get a new agent they automatically think everything will be advanced for them. It won’t be, the band need to take responsibility for this or pay someone else to.
