Best band agencies in Melbourne, advice needed

Postby wez » Sun Aug 30, 2015 9:28 pm

Hi all, I'm looking for advice and recommendations for agencies in Melbourne - there seems to be a million of them and I want to help a client target a select few for live work (corporate/wedding/covers type of thing).

I've worked with a bunch in the past but we're talking 20 years ago, so I expect the landscape has changed somewhat. If anyone has any direct experience or recommendations I'd love to hear them. Also, if you have any advice on agencies to stay away from, I'd like to hear that as well (but preferably via PM or email).

Big thanks!

Don't know if they are the best but they cover a lot of bases and are very profesional:

Uptempo

Those 4 kept food on my table

Hey thanks Chris & Peter, that's a great start, cheers. I think most of those guys are still in business, which is a good sign!

Peter Kemelfield's mob. I've booked artists through them, never worked for them.
Seemed together..
