What Genres Does Afton Book?
Afton books almost all genres of music, though if you are an extremely obscure or uncommon genre we may not have entire nights of your type of music. The main types of genres that we book are listed below. We strongly recommend submitting an Artist Configuration if you fall anywhere near or in the core genres listed. Remember, we can always book you with other acts you are friends with, so even if you are a bit obscure musically, usually over time we can help develop more artists like you on our roster.
We book almost all types of full bands including but not limited to Rock, Indie, Alternative, Folk, Pop, Ska, Punk Rock, Emo, Piano Indie/Rock, Pop Punk, Acoustic, Classick Rock, Powerpop, Southern Rock, Progressive, Reggae, Jam Band, Pyschedelic, Punk Rock, Funk, Blues, Rockabilly, Bluegrass, Country Rock, Post Punk, Grunge, Hard Rock, Post Hardcore, Screamo, Metal, Hardcore, Metalcore, Death Metal, etc.
Urban/Hip Hop Performers
We book almost all types of Urban and Hip Hop artists including but not limited to Hip Hop, Rap, Urban, Christian Rap, Indie/Alternative Hip Hop, full band hip hop artists, etc.
We book Electronic/DJ type artists including but not limited to dub step, house, techno, drum & bass, electronica, ambient, break, downtempo, trance, and standard DJ artists. We are getting more and more into this genre and we now have entire shows dedicated to this type of music.
We book acoustic based acts. Both solo acoustic artists and duo/trio/full acoustic groups. The only acoustic grouping we don’t book as much of would be flamenco, classical, or latin acoustic music.
We book most types of R&B/Pop/Soul acts including but not limited to R&B, Pop/Club, Soul, and some Gospel.
We book solo performers as well as full bands. So if you are a solo performer with back tracks you play to, or you perform solo as well as full band depending on the show format, go ahead and submit the Artist Configuration. Our shows are solo performer friendly.
