Info in email: Band Name, Links to Music (not downloads, stream only), social media accounts, time frame requested for booking (ex “We are seeking holds October 23-28”), Mention acts you have been associated with and venues you have played in and around San Antonio, input list or stage plot is always appreciated.
For first time out of town bands without the backing of an agency or lable we recommend building a showcase with local or established acts.
We receive a high volume of emails and they do get lost from time to time. If you have not heard back from us within 5 business days please resend.
My act was booked, what comes next?
First off, please make sure you really are booked. There have been times the booker has given a tentative date and this has been misunderstood as a confirmed show. We consider a show confirmed when we have discussed the full line up, load-in/soundcheck, set times, and financial terms for the show.
After confirmation we need input lists/stage plots. Day of show contact for your act (phone number and email). Advance any links, media, etc you would like used for promotion of the show.
Booker will arrange one of three deals: door %, flat guarantee, or a guarantee versus %. Merch rate is 100% (soft and recorded) to artist, artist sells merch.
What should I expect day of show?
Load/check specifics that deviate from the standard will be advanced through our bookers. Gear share and backline arrangements are encouraged on larger shows.
Thur, Fri, Sat – load/check 7:30pm. doors 9pm. Set times 10,11,12.
Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed – load 6:30. doors 8pm. Set times 9, 10, 11.
The details of your hospitality should have been shared with you in advance by our bookers. You will not always have access to the green room. If you require it, this needs to be worked out with your booker in advance of the show.
