We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve hidden Elvis!

Elvis is in the building!

Why would you use an entertainment agency like StarTurn to find and book artists? Isn’t it going to cost you less to book direct?  Well not necessarily.  An agency usually negotiates good prices for you and provides extra safeguards you may not even have considered, plus you get heaps of free advice!

First off you have to find the right artist.  What exactly is it you are seeking that will make your event memorable, and keep everyone talking about it for months afterwards? Where and how will you find artists?  How will you know whether the artist is reliable, and has a good track record? How much are you looking to spend on your entertainment? What paperwork will you need to make sure your artist turns up and performs as required?  What considerations need to be given regards the venue, sound and lighting equipment? What should a contract with the artist look like? What back-up plans are there? Is equipment PAT tested and does the artist/agency have insurance?

To save you time and effort you need an agency with a good portfolio of artists, who will answer the questions above, and come up with inspirational ideas on how the artists will give your unique event the ‘wow’ factor. You probably want to leave the ‘vetting’ to someone else too. StarTurn’s vetting is almost as thorough as MI5s!  They’ve had the ‘legal eagles’ inspect the paperwork and contracts.  They liaise with venues for their clients checking on loading in and out, whether there are limits on sound levels and whether there are cut-off times for live music.

The StarTurn ‘stable’ began with two trusted artists and grew, like a spider’s web, building ever outwards, as artists introduced artists. StarTurn made a conscious decision to only work with artists it likes; artists it thinks want to exceed a client’s expectations. StarTurn insists on meeting potential new artists in work and non-work modes, so they can get to know them and the artists get to know StarTurn. It’s important to understand each other when both are trying to make dreams come true for clients.

As well as talent and performance, which are a given, StarTurn seeks reliability and flexibility in its artists. Weddings, events and celebrations are planned with military precision but of course this is life, so always expect the unexpected!

StarTurn especially loves the involvement in working with clients and their overall plan, surprises are a forte.  StarTurn’s lost count of the times they’ve had to keep ‘Elvis’ hidden before the big reveal!

So please pick up the phone for a chat or drop StarTurn an email and take advantage of that free advice. As BT used to say, “It’s good to talk”.  In the meantime, have a look at some frequently asked questions and check out some of StarTurn’s favourite companies. StarTurn looks forward to helping to make your good time a great time!
