Hello, and welcome to Badger Music!
Badger Music is/was a concert booking and promotions company located near Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington in the Pacific Northwest United States. After doing this for a number of years, and making absolutely no money at it, I've decided to just do this via word of mouth, rather than continueing to pay for a website that isn't paying for itself. I have offered a service, which I have undertaken with goodwill and an abundance of enthusiasm for the people I have represented. I have enjoyed seeing great shows and happy audiences happen because of my efforts. The downside is a general misperception that booking agents are out to rip artists off, hassle club managers, and generally behave in a parasitic way which benefits no one. This is a sad untruth that I am tired of encountering. I have put in hundreds of hours per show, not to mention the gas driving around and securing venues, made demo cds and secured air time, only to have the 'artists' turn around and use my contacts to cut me out of the agreement, and generally disrespect me. This hasn't happened often, thankfully, but when I end up working so hard for free when that wasn't the agreement, it's just salt in the wound. Artists: do the booking and PR yourself before contacting a booking company, so that you know how much work it is. Good Luck. I am going back to the Badger Set, and doing my own digging now, thank you.
