Hiring Musicians

LIVE MUSIC has an impact and presence that helps to make any event into a successful one.

Whatever your BUDGET, professional bandleaders can work with you to customize a group/ensemble for your requirements. Bands may increase or decrease in size to suit the needs of your event.

A TMA agreement will be provided by the leader. This standard TMA/American Federation of Musicians contract will protect you and the musicians you hire.

The CONTRACT contains details such as the event theme, performance time, date, place, contacts, set-up time, any specific power supply required, etc. The TMA staff is available to answer any of your questions regarding contract procedure.

Booking in advance will ensure AVAILABILITY OF THE PERFORMER(S).
