♦ DO respect all decisions made by the Booking Staff. They discuss and consider each and every event very carefully. Repeated emails or calling the Booking Staff will NOT change their decision.
♦ DON’T send us generic Press Kits – it is a waste of your time and resources.
♦ DON’T send us a 20-page email listing every venue or show you've ever played, awards you have received, food you ate on your last tour. We just don't have time to weed through all that information. Keep it to the requested information from the BOOKING DOs Section.
