Hire a Blues Band

"The blues is life itself."

Synonymous with the deep south in the United States, the Blues genre encompasses elements of jazz, gospel, country and folk. Most important are the lyrics. The Blues genre give the musicians who play it a chance to tell a story.

Think John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson and Howlin' Wolf to Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. You'll find elements of blues in every great modern song.

Headliner helps you source and book great soloists, bands and DJs for your wedding, party or corporate event. Find and hire a local Blues band for your event.

    HEADLINER'S BLUES BANDS

    One thing you can count on is the movement of time, days, months, and years. You can also count on the occurrence of special occasions, events, parties, celebrations, and ceremonies along the way.

    Just think, there are milestones to celebrate such as a 21st birthday, a 50th wedding anniversary, the day one actually gets married, and/or the day one graduates university. Aside from milestones, there are holiday parties, feel-good backyard gatherings, professional engagements and corporate events (i.e. festivals, fundraisers, fairs), fancy galas, family reunions, intimate dinners, and more.

    All of these instances have one thing in common – inviting and booking live entertainment and performers enhance them all. Hiring local Blues bands not only boosts attendance or increase donations at fundraisers, they also keep guests entertained.

    We've all attended uninspiring, boring events, at least once or twice in our lives. And, we've all likely said to ourselves, "It was a cool event, but the only thing missing was some type of entertainment."

    While having fun is the easy part, trying to hire a Blues band has been a stressful and difficult process for some time. From having the time to research acts and sending emails to negotiating terms and prices, securing live entertainment was once an overwhelming task.

    That was until Headliner.io was launched.

    With a vision to make booking live entertainment simpler and more accessible, Headliner was launched in June 2015. Essentially, Headliner is an online marketplace that connects world-class artists with event professionals and bookers looking to hire a Blues band.

    Being seasoned music industry professionals and understanding the plight of musicians, along with having experienced the challenging consumer side of trying to book wedding Blues bands for their special day, the founders incorporated two major components to benefit both sides:

    1. An in-house team that conducts a stringent and continuous vetting and review process to ensure quality musicians and performers.
    2. Permitting musicians to manage their own bookings, from start to finish, allowing them to earn a sustainable living doing what they do best, as well as control their own careers.

    Gone are the days of sifting through pages of search results, missed phone calls, delayed emails, and bad contracts. Simply put, Headliner has eased the task of hiring Blues bands for parties, special events, ceremonies, or other occasions requiring live entertainment.

    Headliner's streamlined process for finding a Blues band for hire, to them actually showing up to your event, starts with a simple artist search.

    Bookers can either search the 'Artists of the week', which is presented on the search page or use the 'Refine Your Search' feature to find and narrow down an exact match by using the following search criteria: event location, event date, price range, act name, performance type, genres, and event types.

    For those who take to Google to search "how to hire a Blues band near me" or "Blues bands near me", need to search no further. Searching on Headliner, anyone can zero-in on specific locations to find the acts they are looking for.

    Throughout the searching process, bookers have the ability to click on any musician profile to acquire more information. From bios, videos of them in action, and their preferred event types to learning their specializations, listening to their music, and viewing their availability calendar. It's never been easier to hire a Blues band.

    Bookers can also use the ‘Wish List' feature to curate a collection of their favorite Headliner acts. Whether used to organize choices to make a final decision or to simply revisit profiles, creating a list of potential acts will definitely come in handy.

    All carefully vetted, musicians can be messaged directly through the platform, with details of your event. A free no-obligation quote can be requested as well (no booking fees); responses are typically received within 48 hours.

    Once a decision has been made to book a Blues band, the act can be confirmed by paying the requested deposit through a safe and secure booking system. As an added bonus, all payments are held in an escrow account, only to be released to the musician 48 hours after the event. This is to ensure 100% satisfaction.

    In addition, Headliner invites all frequent bookers to sign up for the Reward Scheme program. Refer friends, family, or colleagues to Headliner and receive cash back and/or vouchers when they make their first booking.

    Lastly, Headliner offers an exclusive concierge service, "H", which is a premium specialist service connecting agencies, brands, and event planners directly to global talent.

    With a mixture of backgrounds in events, music journalism and performance, design, marketing, web development, and tech, the Headliner team prides itself on being the go-to online platform to find and hire the best in live entertainment – that's simple, affordable, and reliable, no matter the type of event.

    All in all, Headliner.io is the answer for all of your live entertainment booking needs.
