As any musician who regularly gigs knows, a booking agent (also known as a talent agent), arranges live performances for musicians and bands. In addition to booking live personal appearances, a talent agent may also obtain and negotiate contracts of employment in other areas of entertainment, such as getting TV or radio specials, TV commercials, and tour sponsorships. You can find a music agent in the yellow pages or by calling your local music unions that franchise them. If you decide to choose a union agent, it is best to join the union.
