Music Agents….

In the music world, booking agents are different from talent managers. Booking agents are the people that actually book shows for the artists they represent. They make all of the arrangements with the promoters of the shows. The booking agent presents the promoter or producer of the concert with a performance agreement, which stipulates the artist’s requirements. Items may include lighting, sound, meals, hotel accommodations, and transportation.

For concert buyers, they work to find the right artist that will fit in the need and available budget.Many of the major booking agencies refuse to represent clients who are not already signed to a major record label and have national distribution of their music. Because of this, artists on independent record company often seek representation with an independent booking agency.

Bars and nightclub that specialise in presenting live music on a regular basis often employ an individual to assemble the schedule of events. These people are the venue’s buyers, and should not be confused with the booking agent, who presents their roster of available acts to the buyer. Booking agents may also have contacts known as free-lance promoters. These are individuals that agree to produce a concert by locating a venue, providing a sound system and assembling a staff.

Producing a show in this manner, at a location that is rented out for a single evening, is called “four-walling,” as it entails renting a venue and receiving no additional services or technical equipment other than the space itself. This has often been the only available option for underground musicians lacking enough popular appeal to gain access to more conventional performance venues, but is also used among the genre of raves and various DJ-related events.

The cost factor of having a booking agent has to be weighed against what they can do for clients and buyers alike. Some agents represent several different types of artists, while others represent artists in one main area/genre.

MUSIC MANAGER – WHAT DO THEY DO??….

Talent & Music Manager
 
talent manager, also known as an artist manager or band manager, is an individual or company who guides the professional career of artists in the entertainment industry. The responsibility of the talent manager is to oversee the day-to-day business affairs of an artist; advise and counsel talent concerning professional matters, long-term plans and personal decisions which may affect their career.
 
The roles and responsibilities of a talent manager vary slightly from industry to industry, as do the commissions to which the manager is entitled. For example, a music manager’s duties differ from those managers who advise actors, writers, or directors. A manager can also help artists find an agent, or help them decide when to leave their current agent and identify who to select as a new agent. Talent agents have the authority to make deals for their clients while managers usually can only informally establish connections with producers and studios but do not have the ability to negotiate contracts.
 
A music manager (or band manager) may handle career areas for bands and singers and DJs.
 
A music manager may be hired by a musician or band, or the manager may discover the band, and the relationship is usually contractually bound with mutual assurances, warranties, performances guarantees, and so forth. The manager’s main job is to help with determining decisions related to career moves, bookings, promotion, business deals, recording contracts, etc. The role of music managers can be extensive and may include similar duties to that of a press agent, promoter, booking agent, business manager (who are usually certified public accountants), tour manager, and sometimes even a personal assistant. Manager’s contracts, however, cannot license those responsibilities unto the manager in the same way a state license would empower the agent to do so.
 
Therefore, conflicting areas of interest may arise unless those are clarified in the contract. That said, a manager should be able to read and understand and explain a contracts and study up on the long-term implications of contractual agreements that they, the bands, and the people they do business with, enter into.
 

Before the manager enters into a with the band, their relationship may be regarded as competing for interest; after a good contract is signed, their interests, obligations and incentives are aligned, and the interest in success is shared. Above is more information about the ”Entertaiment & Music” industry to help and inform people.

 

Band members as managers:

 

Sometimes an experienced band member will serve as the group’s music manager until it becomes more established and a dedicated manager can be hired. Some local music managers could be considered musical agents as well, since they primarily represent the band during the booking process and receive a fixed percentage of the band’s gross income as compensation. A music manager working for a local or regional band may also have to supervise the group during a performance and make sure the venue owners meet their financial obligations.
rite your post here.
 

Multiple managers:

 

As a solo performer or band becomes more established, some of the chores previously handled by a music manager are often delegated to others. A road manager, for example, may be responsible for the performers’ travel and lodging arrangement, while a publicist takes on the task of promoting the band and advertising upcoming gigs or tour schedules. A manager’s role in a popular regional or national band may be more of a liaison between a record label and the group, or as an immediate supervisor who addresses the personal and professional needs of the band.
 

Characteristics of a good manager:

 

An effective music manager should have experience in both the creative and business side of the music industry. Musicians often respond better to managers who speak their language, while record labels and venue owners prefer to work with people who are familiar with performance contracts and other legal obligations. Music managers should not make unilateral decisions for their clients, but should also keep a client’s best interests in mind when negotiating an appearance fee or booking more gigs.
 

Manager training Training for a music manager is often a combination of on-the-job experience working for established managers and specific business training in musical management. Some traditional music programs in public colleges and universities may offer a concentration in , while vocational schools specifically geared towards the music industry often offer an intensive course of study leading to employment as a freelance music manager.

How Celebrity Ambassadorial Roles Work?


These days the role of celebrity brand ambassadors has increased significantly.

Studies show that consumers use the product if they see that their favourite celebrities are the brand’s ambassadors. They have become brand ambassadors from products and well known international Brands such as Omega, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Coca Cola, Loreal and Chanel.

That’s why companies these days use celebrities to head their advertising campaign to attract more customers. What is a brand ambassador? And what is its significant role of changing the face of beauty.

A brand ambassador is hired by a certain company to act as the face of the brand. They represent what the product or service is all about. In addition, they are chosen because they have the right look and image to be the Face and Ambassador of the Company and Brand.

Being a brand ambassador can be very tricky because you have to maintain a good and clean image. They have to make sure that they won’t do something stupid that can tarnish the image and reputation of the company. There have been instances in which some celebrity endorsers have been kicked out of the advertising campaign because of a bad thing that they did. Of course, companies are paying a lot of money to hire celebrities to be the face of their campaign. The least thing that a celebrity can do is to maintain a clean image.

Indeed, celebrities have changed the face of advertising. They have become the target of companies be their representative because of their influence with consumers. Think about it, if Leonardo Dicaprio wasn’t the image model of the brand Tag Heuer, or Daniel Craig wasn’t the Model of the Brand Omega, do you think the company will experience an increase on their sales?  Furthermore, designer brands like St. John and Louis Vuitton have used celebrities instead of models to star in their ad campaigns. For instance, celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and Madonna.

As you can see, the world of branding has changed significantly in past years. While there are still some companies that opt to use ordinary people to star in their campaign, most major brands prefer to use celebrities. This is their way of preserving status and prestige in the competitive world of business.
