The Artist Booking Process
First, you will be matched with an agent who specializes in the type of talent you are interested in booking, your particular type of event, or your target audience. Your agent will contact you to learn more details about your event.
CUSTOM LIST OF ARTIST
Next, your agent will develop a personalized list of recommendations that meet your requirements. You will have access to our proprietary talent selection software to review your custom proposal, which will include booking fee range, travel requirements, talent background, and video clips to assist you with your selection.
AVAILABILITY CONFIRMATION & FIRM OFFER
Once you have narrowed down your choices, your agent will confirm the talent's availability and work with you to submit a firm offer to the talent of your choice. During the firm offer phase, your agent works to negotiate the terms and services that are important to your organization.
CONTRACT EXECUTION & LOGISTICS
When negotiations are completed and contracts are fully executed, you will work with a full-time logistics manager who will assist you with pre-event and on-site talent logistics management.
Relax & Enjoy Your Event
Your agent will be monitoring your event as the date approaches, ready and willing to step in when needed. Ensuring the success of your event is our highest priority.
Why work with us
AAE Music is changing the game for how event professionals and venues book artists. Select, book, and execute your event with an entertainer that will leave a lasting impact on your audience.
Every client and every situation is unique. We realize the importance of finding the right fit between the talent and the client. We strive to meet the individual wishes and needs of each organization we work with by taking the time to fully understand the particular requirements of each organization. We work together with our clients to provide a custom list of recommendations carefully selected from the thousands of artist profiles in our database.
Trust & Efficiency
Finding an artist booking agency where you can be presented with all of your options is difficult. Talent agencies or bureaus that have exclusive relationships with artists may only present you with a limited number of options. Rather than contacting multiple agencies to check on talent availability and booking fees, AAE Music is a single, reliable, and unbiased point of contact, focused on providing the best possible customer service
