Unlike movie or television producers, a concert producer is in the trenches. We’re more like a director on films and TV.
So what is it, we do exactly?
• First, we figure out what price act you can afford, and then when you’ve made your choice, we submit an offer to tempt a yes response, USING OUR VAST INDUSTRY CONTACTS AND KNOWLEDGE, and contract with the concert act.
• Next, we obtain the act’s concert rider, and start advancing the show. THIS TAKES A FRAME OF REFERENCE OBTAINED THROUGH YEARS OF WORKING IN THE INDUSTRY. This includes:
~ Getting Airfare and Hotels booked
~ Getting meals, hospitality pre-ordered and arranged
~ Any special permits, parking for buses, livery, limo & van pick up arrangements (once we got Naomi Judd’s doggie ok’d at Orlando Theme Park for an appearance)
~ Getting bids on and contracting with light and sound companies
~ finding and contracting for the backline (instrumentation, music stands, special flooring, whatever you see on stage)
~ Show schedule, from flight arrival, hotel pre-check in, day of show schedule (sound check, load it, show time, meet & greet, etc.)
• All these things must be approved as we go by the venue, the talent, the client. We work with all staff for all 3 entities.
