Why book from an agency?

Some people think if they book a band directly they will save money. WRONG! This is absolutely incorrect. In fact,  we generally save our customers money when they book through us. One of the most important issues customers have when they book a band directly without using an entertainment agency is PRICE. Live bands tend to over charge for private one off events. When you book through us,  we make sure that the band 'keeps it real' and doesn't over charge our customers.
  • The live entertainment that you booked changes their mind and decide that the original price quoted is now not enough and want to charge you extra. You could either have to pay more money or could have the entertainment cancel.
  • Because of our years of expertise in both the entertainment industry and management: we can advise which act would best suit your particular needs and budget.
  • Your live entertainment doesn’t write the details down properly, eg. They could forget to turn up, they could come at the wrong time or could go to the wrong place; the outcome is that your event could be ruined.
  • Bands equipment breaks down, you could be left with no backup plan.
  • Your live entertainment agrees to play a certain style of music when the booking is made, but change their mind; you could end up getting something you didn’t pay for.
  • If your live entertainment encounters an emergency, eg. car accident, gets sick, family dramas - you could be left with no entertainment.
  • Due to being a one off gig for the band, they could turn up unsuitably dressed; they could help themselves to your food and beverages; drink your alcohol and could get drunk, and could be disrespectful to you and your guests, could only play for short periods with extended breaks resulting in your event being ruined.
  • Unfortunately some great live performers can think they’re rock stars and become very demanding, especially if they know there is no one else to replace them.
  • A public venue offers your live entertainment permanent weekly work, where one of the dates falls on the same date as your event, the band could cancel your booking first.
  • Another client offers your live entertainment more money to have them on the same day as your event, they could cancel your gig.
  • If there’s more than one band member looking after the band's bookings and your live entertainment double books themselves, you could be the one that misses out.

We are therefore the middle man between you (the client) and the act.  It is our job to ensure that everything goes well and that you will use our services again.  And just as important, for you to tell your family and friends about the great experience you had with Bands Plus. This is entertainment insurance in its purest form.  It is therefore in our best interests that we work with you to  ensure complete customer satisfaction. We have processes and procedures that minimise any of these problems in booking an act.
