Georgia Country Bookings
Georgia-Country.com is not a booking agency per say. But with our relationships with the many venues and events around Georgia, we often successfully placed our acts and bands. We have placed acts in venues such as: Whiskey River Ellijay, Cypress Grill in Cordele, Salty Snapper, Woodstack BBQ, Gustons Woodstock, Crescent City Tavern in Dalton, 16 East in Cordele, Savannah, Blueberry Hill in Savannah, Crazy Bull in Macon, Amicis throughout Georgia, American Legions in Rome & Club 201 and many others. We booked full band to acoustic shows. We also have had our acts open for some of the biggest names in country music, such as: Tracy Lawrence, Tracy Byrd, Rhett Akins, Doug Stone, Bryan White, John Berry, Josh Gracin, Joe Diffie and The Swan Brothers. We at times use GigMasters and GigSalad, which several of our artist have been booked for weddings, festivals, private functions and more.
We do NOT charge a booking fee for our acts that is booked from GC. What we book them for, they make. We work between our acts and the venues to make sure the night is as successful as possible. We coordinate the load in times, equipment needed and show times. The only booking fee that might apply is booking from third party agents or a flat rate from GigMasters & GigSalad events.
With us NOT a booking agency, we can't promise any amount of bookings per month or duration of contract, but all our acts have been booked enough over a year's time, that they've made their contract investment back from GC Bookings. We also don't put any limits on the bookings. We will aggressively book you often during your contract with Georgia-Country.com. Most of our acts make back two or three times or more. And with our relationships with the venues, we often get contacted by these venues and other events, looking for singers and bands.
We feel that every band or act has to have the tools in order to get considered or booked at any venue. You must have either a well managed website or music page (Facebook or Reverbnation). You must have quality enough videos for potential venues to veiw and listen to. Most venues will not book an act sight unseen.
Outside of gig bookings, GC has directed our acts to radio spots, benefit shows, songwriter showcases and other oportunties that will expose their music. We have also added showcases for local and national record labels, publishing companies and entertainment groups for the acts we work with.
