1. Where to begin?
Our website provides up-to-date promotional materials on the best regional bands including song lists, photos, audio/video, and more. Get started by choosing the appropriate Venue/Event type to explore your options, or get more specific by using the Genre/Band search.
2. How can I check availability for a band?
The best way to check if a band is available is to contact an agent in our office at (757)463-1940 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We have regular communication with our bands and can quickly see if a band is available on a certain date. National clients can contact the appropriate agent to access our password-protected database of availability and pricing for national bands.
3. How do I book a band?
We will start by discussing details of your event including date, venue, budget, and audience. With these key details we will be able to make suggestions to best suit your needs. Once a band has been selected and availability secured, our agents will negotiate with the band, on your behalf, for the best price. After a price is agreed upon by all parties, we will issue a contract for the event. The buyer (you) will sign the contract first, we will send it to the band to sign, and you will then receive a fully executed contract for your event.
4. How far in advance should I book a band?
For weddings, private events, holiday parties, etc., at least 6 to 12 months in advance is ideal. Nightclubs and venues tend to book anywhere from 3 to 6 months in advance. We want to provide you with as many options as possible, and waiting longer means fewer acts will be available. However, we can facilitate last minute booking and will work hard to set up a show with just a few days notice.
5. How much does a band cost?
Band prices are dependent on many variables. Popularity, timing, and stature will likely be the biggest factors. Prices can also depend on routing, day of the week, and type of event. Given all these factors, it is necessary to contact an agent to get accurate pricing.
6. Why should I book with an agency?
There are many advantages to having More Music Group provide entertainment for your event. We offer a large and diverse artist roster and can provide entertainment for any type of event. Often times, we can negotiate better pricing due to the relationships we have established over the years with our artists. Each show we book is confirmed with a professional contract, helping to eliminate miscommunications between client and band. We are experienced, knowledgeable, and ready to assist you in any way possible.
7. What is production/PA/sound and do I need it?
Production/PA/sound refers to the sound system (and often lighting) a band uses to put on a show. Most of our regional acts are self sufficient and can provide their own sound system . However, every scenario is different and the buyer may be required to provide additional production. We have a reliable network of sound/production services that we can provide. (This cost would be included in the price quote)
8. Why don’t I see the band I want on your site?
More Music Group works with bands and artists across many regions including some not listed on this site. If the band you are looking for is not listed, please call us at (757)-463-1940. If we find out the band you want is not available, our agents will suggest comparable acts to suit your needs.
9. How can I get my band booked by More Music Group?
If you would like to submit your band or act to More Music Group for booking consideration, please send an Electronic Press Kit (we prefer EPKs over hard copy press kits) to email@example.com. Promotional materials should include audio and/or video links, a brief bio, pictures, song lists and a list of venues where you have performed. Also make sure to include any social media links. We look forward to hearing from you!
