metal booking agencies

I know a few here do it, or know those that do. Looking for names, contacts of a few booking agencies that specialize (or at least deal with) booking heavy metal/hard rock tours. I now know a few bands that have had tours cancelled due to ineffective booking, dates falling through, etc. So trying to help them out by getting them in contact with the right people.

Depends on the size of the band. If you're talking nationals/signed, there are really only 2 guys that do that in the US for the good clubs - John Finberg of First Row Talent is the big one I usually hear about most.

If you're talking in general, there are tons of agencies but I can't recommend one as I usually book through promoters and club owners and not agents...

There are two levels to what you are referring. Finberg handles the newer national acts for the most part including Kamelot, Edguy, Nightwish, etc. Tim Borror of The Agency Group handles the bigger ones such as Dimmu, In Flames, Iced Earth, etc.

Yes, true. I was assuming it was a "smaller" band since he was trying to help them find a booking agent.

If any of your bands are Christian, I've worked with and can recommend Bridge Street Artist Agency: http://www.bsaa.biz/rock/index.asp

SwordLord and I booked black/death metal acts Crimson Moonlight, Becoming the Archetype, and Aletheian through them.
