How do I inquire about booking an artist?

Easy. Just click this button to fill out an artist inquiry form.


Will the artist perform with our church band?

Each artist is differnet, but in general the answer is no.  This is due to time contraints on the artist.  The artist generally arrives the date of the engagement and this doesn't allow for any rehearsal. If the artist isn't comfortable with the band, this can effect their ability to minister effectively.There are instances where the Artist will use the band, say if they are doing some standard Praise & Worship songs, but not their original material.


What does "plus expenses" mean?

"Plus expenses" means the sponsor is responsible for the travel (local and roundtrip), meals and lodging for the artist in conjunction with the event. These items are in addition to the artist honorarium for the event.

There are instances where the artist is willing to do a buyout of the expenses with the sponsor.


What is the process of booking an artist?

The process of booking an artist is pretty straight forward.

Once the sponsor has chosen a particular artist for a concert performance or appearance, we work with them to et the details for the program and present it to the artist management for consideration.

The details include the date, time, location, size of sanctuary, ticket prices (if being sold) and other details you feel necessary for the artist to know. Management will then confirm or ask for more details. Once confirmed, contracts are issued.


What is the technical rider?

The Technical Rider is a document that the artist uses to outline those items needed to make the concert or event run smoothly. These items are broken down into sections. Most have general needs and technical needs. Management for the artist can go over the Technical Rider and discuss what items can be substituted. If attached, the Technical Rider is part of the original contract. Technical Riders are available via their respective artist's web page.

Will the artist do interviews to help promote the event?

Yes, they will.

We can put you in touch with the correct person to set this up. Each artist is different, some use a publicist, some use their label, and others use their manager to coordinate these.

Under no circumstances can you confirm an artist to do an interview without first consulting management.
