How Bands Should Write an Inquiry Letter to Book a Show
There are people in the world who make your job easier and those who make it harder. In order to write a successful booking inquiry, you need to be the former—be the band that makes the booker’s job easier.
This isn’t rocket science, but it should take some brain power to produce. If you are zapping off your booking inquiry from your cell while riding your bike and checking the waves, you are not giving it enough attention.
In order to get into the zone, I humbly suggest you set aside an hour and put yourself in the booker’s shoes. Assume that they have never heard of your band and that your e-mail will end up next to 30 other similar requests awaiting their fate.
