The best way to contact venues for gigs has changed over the years.
In the past, you had a couple of choices. You could call or just show up at the club and try to connect with the booking agent.
I did both, a LOT!
The first time you called always ended up being the “get good info” call.
You’d almost never get the person who books gigs and it was almost always at the wrong time.
So, you’d leave a message, get the name of the person who books the gigs and the best time to call them back.
Then you’d call back again and again… and again.
It was a nightmare. Believe me. I lived it and booked hundreds of gigs doing it.
If you think booking agents don’t work their tails off trying to book you gigs then you need to do it yourself for a while.
Luckily almost all venues prefer that you contact them through email now.
It takes about the same amount of time as a quick phone call and you have to follow the same procedure.
Instead of a cold call, you’re sending a cold email to someone that doesn’t know you or particularly care to receive an email from you.
Follow these 3 tips to contact venues for gigs.
