There is also New Zealand’s top ABBA Tribute Show for larger events, fund raisers, clubs and festivals.
ETHICAL, TRANSPARENT FEE STRUCTURE
This is an ethical agency, run by Pauline Berry, a musician and band manager, supporting and encouraging other musicians, of proven quality.
The booking fees are lower than other live music agencies, and are transparent to both the hirer and the musician, so both get a better deal. I know of no other agency that does this.
The music industry is not bound by any rules on fees or percentages charged, so the fees can be anywhere from 25-300% charged on top, with all future bookings between that client and that act “owned” by the agency. I disagree with this business model.
At Book A Band there is a limit of 20% or $100 + GST per act, whichever is greater. Additionally all acts are fully allowed to give out their own business card at private and corporate bookings, when they are hired and on site booked through this agency, when people are interested in booking them and asking how.
Management encourages this enterprise, as quality deserves to be booked time and again. The only exception is when this agency is supplying a regular roster of musicians to a venue, as is covered in the next paragraph.
BOOKABAND SUPPLIES REGULAR ACTS TO BARS AND RESTAURANTS
For regular hire-age such as a roster of duos at a restaurant or bar there is a $100+ GST fee per booking. But there is the opportunity to pay a one off fee to prevent ongoing fees (essentially buy the right to hire direct) once a venue has decided they love a particular group and want to use them regularly. This is the equivalent of five booking fees.
All bands are vetted and known to the agency. They are all wonderful musicians, who can work with any situation – essentially music is a service.

I have been in the music business over 30 years, so am in touch with many other musicians available in Auckland and around New Zealand, across all kinds of genres.
This website is evolving and will be updated regularly with interesting new acts.
