The BEST marketing tool for bands.

Market without spending a lot of time and money.

Let us help you.

Your band has the talent, the equipment, the knowledge and you definitely have the hustle. You have everything you need to be the perfect entertainment for someone’s event — but when it comes to marketing, the only things you can’t seem to find are the ones you shouldn’t have to need: time and money.

Chicago Entertainment Agency knows that this is one of the most common obstacles entertainers face. In addition to being talented musicians and entertainers, you are people — parents, caretakers and professionals, each with responsibilities that might make it difficult to devote a ton of time to finding gigs and marketing exposure. Chicago Entertainment Agency is a hub for talent and clients to find each other, making it easy for you to find gigs (or, even better, for gigs to find you!) without spending hours at work or breaking the bank. CEA provides hands-on service from our agents, no hidden fees, great electronic collateral and will verify you as CEA-approved talent. These marketing tools help clients find you easily. 

Trusted companies like Chicago Entertainment Agency understand that you’re human, and want to remove time and money as an obstacle. All you have to do is sign up to become verified talent with CEA. The process is quick and easy, and with our brand new website, it’s even easier. Just bring the talent, and CEA’s marketing tools and substantial client base will take care of the rest.

Hoping and praying that someone will find your website or Facebook and call to book you is a good method if you want to stay where you are. But if you want to move forward and get more gigs, you need to join Chicago Entertainment Agency.

For a small investment of a quarter a day, you'll have access to our extensive list of clients and events. Our sister company, StarEvents, uses Chicago Entertainment Agency to book the talent for their summer festivals. That's over $1,000,000 we invest right back into our members every year. Don’t you want a part of that? Join Chicago Entertainment Agency today.
