Regional Tour Package
Unlimited Automatic Booking Emails
and Music Promotion
All our programs are designed to deliver more value than you pay for. And they do. The bottom line is that we are the best system for booking new and up-and-coming independent artists. We are not a booking agency. There are no contracts unless you choose. There is no other label, service, or agent in the Unites States that does what we do for independent artists. We do not guarantee a particular amount of gigs or pay. There are too many uncertain factors (how good your music is, your web presence, your experience level, the availability of target dates in target cities, etc.) to fill your head with pies in the sky. We do guarantee that we are the best service to help artists develop their business. Our customers can convince you how valuable our packages are. Sign up today for best results. We use the most trusted name on the internet to accept payments.
Booking agents and independent artists: Here's a rundown on which service might be the best fit.
Regional Tour Package- For artists looking for new places to play and/or book their first or twentieth DIY tour
Artist Development Package- For artists that need a professional online presence, an easy way to interact with fans, booking help, and real merch without the real cost
Band Merch- For artists that just need the free merch to sell
BANDTURBO! Music Promotioin- For artists that need a professional online presence, an easy way to interact with fans, and real merch without the real cost
Booking Agent Package- For transitioning from independent DIY artist to independent artist represented by an agency
Trash Fliers- For artists and promoters booking multiple shows a month that know the importance of branding, and for supporting Joseph!--one of our booking managers that is also a creative masterpiece of a human
Look how weird- the number 20th looks spelled out up under the Regional Tour Package^
Some basic facts: 1) For convenience and safety, all our routing has an average daily drive time of less than 8 hours between gigs (usually avg. of less than 6 hrs, we shoot for 2-4). 2) Our 2016 tour gig fill average was about 9/10 dates per tour for artists with zero touring experience. 2017 we haven't checked yet and probably won't because we've been pretty slammed. 3) We've had 250+ paying customers since July 2016, and many more that weren't paying customers, so don't hesitate to reach out for help or guidance.

You can pay $300 for a box of shirts and hope you guess the right amount to get for each size. And pay another $100 for shipping. And hopefully not spill anything into the merch box at shows. Or you can let us mock-up, upload, collect payment, print, and ship your entire line of band merch. For free. Without having to "lift a finger," as they say. Who is "they?" Not sure.
You can sell directly from your website. We set it all up for you at no charge. We send payments directly to you every month. Check out the breakdown of the profit schedule for each item sold. If you need anything designed, let us know. But you gotta pay for that. (#AllArtistsGetPaid)

BANDTURBO! Music Promotion
Music promotion in the new age. When a talent buyer asks for a link to your music, they are usually checking for two things: your sound and your views. They want to make sure the sound fits and that you have fans out there vibing to your movement. When fans check your video, they want to see if their peers already like it. We've developed a process for the best music promotion to get your videos in front of people that actually want to hear your music without spamming it to people that aren't interested. Get into the triple or quadruple digits of video views with our custom music promotion service delivering your music to new, real fans.
