What types of venues have we worked?
We can build a show from the ground up at any venue type, large or small. We specialize in outdoor areas for Festivals and Rally’s, Convention Centers for Association clients, as well as Hotels, Clubs and Theaters for Corporate and Private functions!
How soon should I start looking into booking entertainment for my event?
We suggest you start 9-10 months prior to your event if possible, so you have more of a selection to choose from as opposed to waiting a few months ahead of your event. If you are on a weekend, keep in mind the weekend dates are the anchor dates for bookings, and there are only 4 Saturdays in each month.
Who should we book?
Each event/venue is unique in their entertainment needs. We consider budget, logistics, geographical area, and being realistic when it comes to suggesting what you should book.

We rely on our experience with artist, in regards to ticket selling ability, as well as using industry research tolls, such as PollstarPro for artist tour history of ticket sales. Facebook for geographical purposes, along with Youtube and artist websites for research.
