ARTIST BOOKING SERVICES
ARTIST BOOKING SERVICES
GigginVT Productions is always reaching out to new venues, festivals, and promoters for special events for bands that sign up for our services. This provides ongoing exposure for each membership artist that we work with. While some artist may not be appropriate for each event, the exposure remains for future events and to all new venue and event planners coming in.
We do not offer management services for artist, which allows the artist to freely book gigs throughout the year. The gigs we are given for recruitment are offered by the venue through contract, meaning no other outside artist may book for that particular event.
Standard Booking Artist do not pay an annual fee. Artist who sign up for the standard booking services will be considered next in line after all membership artist have been given an opportunity to book current open gigs/events. If you only want standard booking, you don't have to do a thing! Because you got this email.... your on our list!
GigginVT Productions charges %10 for all events booked with a guaranteed fee.
For Example: A venue offers $500.00 for a guaranteed fee or the door fee whichever is higher. If an artist brings in $800.00 at the door, GigginVT’s fee is still only 10% of the guaranteed fee, which is $50.00. You worked hard for your gig fee so you should be rewarded as such.
For events that offer the door fee only, GigginVT Productions will charge $20.00. That's it! This will allow the artists to receive fair prices for lower paying gigs.
For events that offer ticketed sales for large venues/theaters, GigginVT productions will charge 15% of the ticket sales. These events require a lot of push to sell tickets and aggressive time and promotion!
You do not need to be a member to be booked by GigginVT Productions, however membership artists will receive first consideration for any gig availability. (for more information on membership please see below).
Events booked through GigginVT Productions will provide a performance contract for each event. This will ensure that the gig fee is fair and agreed upon by both the vendor and the artists. PA Systems, sound-check times, set times, breaks allowed, and any additional offerings from the venue are captured in the contract so our artists go into each gig without confusion. Performance contracts also prevent the possibility of double booking.
We put all our event listings in local calendars, newpapers, and local radio event calendars.
Gig fees are primarily the responsibility of the artist for payment (unless otherwise arranged by the venue). We offer convenient online invoicing and payment for all events that we book for you.
ANNUAL ARTIST MEMBERSHIP
(This is for extra exposure via website and first consideration for bookings that are open. This does NOT guarantee gig placements, although we work hard to make sure that we get as many for you as possible).
GigginVT Production charges a flat annual membership fee of $75.00 a year
in addition to the gig fees listed above. (That's only $6.25 a month)
We keep our membership dues way below the industry standard to allow for more gig money in the artists pocket. You work hard for your money, let’s keep it that way.
This includes all standard booking services listed above PLUS:
An artist spot on the GigginVT Productions webpage which includes a bio of the artist & one photo. This provides year-round advertisement for the artist to each and every person/business who access our webpage, and to every talent buyer, event planner, and venue owner we send information to!
This also puts you at the front of the line for gig offerings that are appropriate for the music you provide. Our Membership artists will be considered and offered first for all matching events that are open for recruitment before we reach out to our entire mailing list.
And we will also provide occasional highlights of your band in our promotion emails as well as occasional paid outreach for your event by GigginVT when needed.
NEW SERVICE: Personal Artist Page (EPK)
(Add $45.00 to your membership price)
Many artists struggle with putting together a website/EPK. We are happy to help you with this. We can build a page dedicated to your music as an extension of our artists page.
This page will host pictures, videos, links to your social media and bios. Venue owners look at these first. It'c considered a one-stop shop for information regarding your group. A simple page that provides all the basic information a venue is looking for.
You will be supplied the page link for use on your personal pages/social media platforms and individual outreach. Word of mouth and an unactive Facebook page is just not enough! Let GigginVT help you get a better shot at securing those bookings.
*Personal Artists pages are only available to member artists*
