Appropriate Venues for Your Band

Based on your band's size, experience, ability and repertoire, we'll hand-pick appropriate indoor or outdoor venues just for you. We guarantee your venue will be suitable for your ensemble.

Instrument & Equipment Rentals

We take care of all your instrument and equipment rental needs. Whether you need a tuba, sound system or large percussion instruments, we'll handle it for you.

High-Quality Instrument Trucks

Coach space is limited with your group's luggage. Upon request, we'll book an additional instrument truck to travel alongside your group carefully transporting your instruments.

Instrument Storage

We'll keep your instruments in a safe, separate location at your hotel, plus, we'll work with your venues or coach driver to ensure a safe storage space for your things during the performances.

 

Set-Up, Sound Checks and Rehearsals

Your Program Managers will work with you to determine how much time you will need and will coordinate this with your chosen venues.

Instrument Insurance

Both our Comprehensive and Ultimate Insurance plans offer instrument insurance for traveling passengers. Upgrade to additional insurance by speaking with your Tour Consultant.

Publicity Materials

Your band's press kit is of the utmost importance when requesting to play in venues overseas. Our Ultimate Guide to Creating Your Band's Press Kit will guide you along the process of how to put this together.

Repertoire Selection & Approval

Whether playing in an outdoor bandstand or a beautiful concert hall, repertoire selection is key to a successful band trip. We'll help you select your touring repertoire and pass it along to your venues for approval.

 

Attire & Changing Rooms

Uniforms, tuxedos or something else? We'll keep you informed of what band attire you'll need to bring and we'll even book your changing rooms in advance.

Balance & Ringers

We know that your band's balance is important during your recruitment strategies. We'll help you keep an eye on your instrumentation as passengers register and can even hire ringers if you need them!

Joint Concerts, Workshops and Benefit Concerts

Looking to work with a local band while playing overseas? Want a workshop with a local band director? Or want to raise money for a certain charity during your performance? Ask us to include some of these options in your proposal.
