RETRO: Booking Agents and Music Managers

I’ve been wanting to write some new articles about booking concerts. It seems like we’re in another cycle where folks ask me questions like, “now that we have Twitter and Facebook, it should be totally easy to find a booking agent, right?” (Three years ago, it was, “now that we have MySpace…” Before that, it was “…” and before that, it was “AOL…”)

Booking agents are important to making the leap into making money from your music. But there are some reasons booking agents are so hard to find. I’ll be writing about those reasons over the next few weeks.

While those notes come together, I wanted to point back at the great interview that Scott Andrew did with Mary McFaul, an experienced music manager, booking agent, and music consultant…

  1. No luck finding talent buyers!

    I represent musician Derek Amato. Derek’s story is beyond the typical musician. He suffered a head trauma in 2006, awoke to play several musical instruments, and not just average might I add. His story has been referred to as “The musical story of the decade” by many national media facets, but still no bites. This story deserves coverage, and actually if we can get him on a major t.v syndicate in front of people, it will sell itself. Please advise.
