Book Your Band-How to inquire about booking
Post the date of your inquiry and the person or persons at the venue you spoke with. If Susan answers the phone, write her name on the assignment sheet. That way, if you have to call again and Susan answers the phone, you can strike up a conversation with her. Making friends with the bar staff is a great way to pave a path of acceptance and accord before you even get to the talent buyer. Turn over at some venues is high. You always need to be nice to the person who answers the phone. Susan could be answering the phone this week. Next week she may be the talent buyer! It pays to be polite and kind to anyone you come in contact with as you try to book shows. The music business is based on relationships and everyone you contact should be treated with polite respect.
