Special Format Artists & Events
Religious & Spiritual Acts
We frequently book Christian and other religious artists on our shows and have done so since our company started. But, we do not book shows where 100% of the acts on the show are all Christian acts or all of one certain religion. We book a fair mix of Christian and religious acts alongside secular artists, and we are always open to booking any act of any religion. We do not book shows at churches, nor do we book religious or Christian festivals. Most of the music venues we book have a bar section for 21+ ONLY fans who want to have a beer, while the all ages or under age section is separate per state liquor laws.
We are always open to booking Cover Bands or bands that play cover songs. The crowd always enjoys a good cover. However, we do NOT currently hire one Cover Band for an entire night to entertain the patrons or drinkers that will already be at the bar or restaurant that night. We book live concerts in music venues where the crowd coming out is the crowd that is there to specifically see the bands performing that night. If you are a Cover Band that only wants to be hired to entertain a room full of people, our shows are not for you. If, on the other hand, your Cover Band wants to further develop your fan base and play alongside other local acts so that you can play in front of their fans and help gain new exposure – our shows will probably fit your needs.
We do not book any festivals or weddings at this time. That is not the type of shows we are currently pursuing. If you are solely interested in playing only weddings or playing only festivals then our shows are not for you.
