Applications to join our Roster (a Musician’s guide)
This guide is for bands, musicians and performers who wish to join our roster, and does not apply to our celebrity and public speaking engagements. Please note: We respectfully cannot discuss any applications over the telephone. We assess applications via e-mail only, and can only consider applications that have meet the requirements below in full. If you have already sent your information to us we request that you refrain from calling our office for updates, as we can only reply to artists we feel are suitable for our roster.
We always welcome applications from the most talented performers in the UK, however we only accept a very small number of submissions.
Important: The most important aspect of joining our roster is your unique act name. We require you to perform using a name that is unique to our agency so we can market you effectively. If you are not willing to send us a suitable unique name for your act unfortunately we cannot accept your application.
Important: We require all artists to respond to our availability enquiries within 24hrs to ensure a prompt and professional service to clients. We cannot accept applications (and we may remove artists from our roster) if this cannot be observed.

We require you to possess all equipment necessary to provide your show (i.e. a portable PA system & Lighting) and reliable transport
We require full contact details for the person in charge of accepting bookings for your act (i.e. the person who administrates your gig diary). In addition to a mobile number we require a landline telephone number and full postal address. If you cannot provide this unfortunately we cannot accept submissions.
