I think you may need to be more specific here but to start with Alan Bearman music have a good roster of artists and I have also dealt with Stoneyport in the past who are very helpful. Adastra also have a good range of artists

Yeah Beer I am. I want someone to help me branch out for gigs and all. I have been contacted by one in LA and one in Nashville. They are helping me out with some gigs but the one in LA is so swamped I am having to wait. He is or was not sure business partners with Bob Dylan and the head of Sony records until he retired last yr. He is really anxious about working with me but right now he is covered up and I am having to wait. I am wanting work like quick so I am looking around for someone. Locality doesn't matter to me.I am in the US (Kentucky to be specific.

I guess to be honest I have been some what pampered about things. I have had labels like Decca records get everything for me. Or I have been hired by artists and thier managers took me under and hooked me up. I am kinda lost and tired of depending on others and waiting for luck to take over. I am striking out on my own instead just working for other artists and I realize I really don't know how to go about some of it.It is like I am a newbie. People are calling and things like that I have contacts and people wanting to help me out. I am needing advice and maybe some ideas. I dont mean to sound dumb with this question but I figured there are alot of people that have a greater knowledge and more experience than me on this topic.

Well Jayto I have 7 years experience booking musicians( for Festival) one on one and also through Agencies. I much prefer the first. I can recommend three that I have been excellent. Keith Case and Associates (www.keithcase.com), Live Tour Artist (just Google it.) and The Agency Group Ltd(www.theagencygroup.com). Check your p.m. for an added note.
Adrien
