QUESTION:
Who is the best_______? 

ANSWER:
When asked who is the best band, DJ, or entertainer, we can only speak in objective terms. Number of bookings, how many inquiries about specific acts and sometimes price are facts that are not open to debate and serve only to demonstrate an act’s popularity. Artist popularity may be based on such factors as name recognition, quality of performance, affordability, and current trends in the industry. These factors can in turn dictate an act’s current status and resultant price.

From our perspective, reliability and professionalism are huge factors in our decision to represent an act or not. You as a buyer may safely assume that we have screened our talent and are presenting only talent that is of course of high quality in terms of performance but also meet our standards for professionalism. It is our philosophy that the best act is the act that serves our clients’ needs best. As in art and beauty, entertainment is in the eyes and ears of the beholder.
