Jazz & Blues Music Booking Agency

Our Jazz & Blues section consists of performers and groups from the 50's 60's, 70's and 80's and 90's that make up most of the touring Jazz & Blues acts that are working today.  Most of these famous Jazz & Blues performers and groups are African American musicians that had great success as touring acts and sold records to a wide audience around the world.  Many Jazz & Blues acts still tour performing in casinos, theaters and Jazz & Blues clubs up to 200 days a year.  The booking fee for Jazz & Blues acts can start at $7,500, with booking prices for Jazz & Blues groups going to over $250,000.  Booking Jazz & Blues acts for corporate events is a big business since booking Jazz & Blues bands allows companies to associate their brand with the often cool and hip Jazz & Blues performers or groups.  Booking Jazz & Blues bands for corporate events tends to cater to an older demographic, but these famous groups appeal to younger people as well as they too have grown up listening to these famous Jazz & Blues musicians.  Booking fees for Jazz & Blues groups for corporate events are slightly higher than the fees for booking Jazz & Blues groups for public concerts as these shows are normally one off concerts as opposed to coordinated tours.  Booking famous Jazz & Blues bands for private parties or booking Jazz & Blues bands for fundraisers is also very popular.  Our Jazz & Blues booking agents get numerous requests for prices for Jazz & Blues bands, with our agents for Jazz & Blues groups quoting fees for Jazz & Blues bands daily to customers around the world.
