Can I find it all on the net?

Is it Quality, and will you have peace of mind once it’s booked?

Do a search on the internet for live entertainers, bands, acts, DJ’s -, any type of entertainment, and you will turn up thousands of results. As an agency, we received loads of submissions from acts. Sadly most of it is not up to standard and never makes it onto our books. By having a look on the internet, we know that this is not the case with some agencies and bookers. Sadly much of what they are offering is not up to standard. All of the vast choice of entertainment we offer goes through a careful quality assessment. Is Quality assessed, and if it meets our high standards, then and only then is it provided to our clients.

 

So if Quality is a requirement, it is essential you book from a quality entertainment agency.

So that’s the quality bit taken care of. Now for the peace of mind bit! Booking from a quality entertainment agency will provide you with written / up-to-date contracts and regulations.

 

WHERE CAN YOU FIND ALL OF THIS?

WELL, WE THINK YOU MAY HAVE ALREADY!

By using a reputable entertainment agent to book your entertainment, you are safe in the knowledge that should an issue occur, it will be resolved.

 
Here’s an example:-

Should your entertainer/band/act become ill and you have booked with a reputable entertainment agent, the agent will use every professional endeavour to replace the show like like, with their extensive database of acts & trusted trading partners. This would not normally present a problem. Also, many acts offer entertainment agents preferable rates this which can often save you money.
