What do 99% of corporate clients do to hire entertainment for their events? They hire event planners to sift thru entertainment vendors and/or bands and other entertainment to get what they want. For whatever reason, clients don’t want to deal directly with bandleaders, tribute artists or their agents, so they pay planners to do the looking and negotiating on price. What can corporate clients do to get the best entertainment for their events? Go direct!
The mistake: hiring event planners instead of going direct –
Why is this a mistake? Very simply, planners have their favorite bands, tribute artists and agents and aren’t going to promote one from outside their sphere–no matter how talented those bands or artists are! They may also make more money promoting their favorite bands and artists. In doing so, these planners are doing their clients a disservice–not giving their clients a wide range of quality choices or recommending bands they’ve worked with over those they haven’t. Moreover, planners have enough to deal with with other vendors such as caterers, valet service companies, florists, chair and table rentals, cake designers and many others.
Entertainment agents know about bands and tribute artists. The good ones know about personnel changes in these bands, if any, and they know about attrition. They know if a band’s video is truly demonstrative of what the band looks like today.
How do we know this? –
How do we know all this? From decades of experience working closely with bandleaders. We’ve been in business since 1998. DLE has THE best show bands and tribute artists on the planet! By not using DLE bands and artists, planners are short-changing their clients in a major way.
We work directly with clients on their events –
We work directly with clients on their events. We eliminate “the middle men and women”–the event planners. In doing so, we save our clients money or at the very least guarantee them the very best talent in the U.S. for their events. It’s a “win win” for both our clients and DLE!
I invite prospective clients to peruse this site, particularly the Las Vegas Show Bands page and the Tribute Artists And Variety Acts page. Watch the videos and if there’s a band or act without a video, ask us to send you their video link by filling out the Request a Quote page.
