What is the Difference Between Wedding Booking Agent and Self Managed Artist?
Who you hire should largely depend on the type of services you want for your wedding. It's important to note that the booking agent may not be musicians themselves; but may contract individual or collection of the artist (s). Your financial amounts quoted by the booking agent for your wedding is not the actual price musician is getting paid. It is very rare that the booking agent reveals what the artist (s) is actually getting paid. The cost quoted by the wedding booking agent is substantially higher than the self-managed wedding musician (s).
Self -Managed Wedding Musicians
If you are on a semi-tight budget, you can opt for an artist/group self-management to perform at your wedding. Basically, you cut out the middle man. The booking agency is a businessman/woman. They are competitive and expensive business. However, a higher price does not guarantee that the entertainment would be good.
To find a self-managed artist in your area, try typing the name of your area and the words "wedding musician" or "wedding band" in your search engine. If you are not satisfied with your results, check your phone book. If you have a friend or family member who can provide recommendations – even better. Make sure that they have used this artist/band for a similar event. If not, it's not a very strong recommendation.
