Why should our band become a subscriber?
Talent buyers, event producers and festival organizers are always looking to book talent for now and in the future. The tribute band movement is thriving. A one-stop shop directory enables tribute bands to establish a profile of their work, be seen by thousands of visitors, make new connections and get hired for work.
How do I become a subscriber?
Create an account by clicking Add Your Band in the menu at the top of the site. You will have your own unique login that enables you to visit the site and edit/update as needed so your information is current and fresh for talent buyers. There is no annual subscriber (aka membership) fee. Our site enables you to be discovered although it does not guarantee employment.
What if the original artist we cover is not included in your list?
We will add the original artist to the database. When creating your profile, please indicate “OTHER”. Then, after completing your profile, email us with the original artist name at memberservices (at) findtributebands.com and we will add it to our database of original artists.
What is included in my band’s profile?
A Profile Descriptor box where you can provide a simple explanation of what distinguishes your act from others, a full bio, your contact information, social media contacts, videos and photos. Your bio can include past performance dates & places. Remember, you can login and manage your account 24/7 as needed.
What is a Profile Descriptor?
The Profile Descriptor is your 130 character elevator pitch that becomes your primary marketing tool for distinguishing your band from others. Including your future availability is suggested. Remember, you can login and update your Profile Descriptor 24/7 as needed.
What is the turnaround time for my band profile to appear?
Within 2 to 3 days when you first sign up, and then instantly when you provide changes and click update. During the term of membership, Tribute Band Directory reserves the right to edit content info it feels is not appropriate to the spirit of the site, and to take down a band’s page without financial recourse, in the event of misusing the site or if contact info is incorrect or invalid.
How will you find an audience for my band on your site?
We communicate using multiple platforms to talent buyers. We promote through social media (both paid and free), and other print and digital advertising platforms.
How can I access the site?
Tribute Band Directory is optimized for Desktops, Laptops, Tablets and Phones.
On the site, how are tribute bands and cover bands defined?
Within Tribute Band Directory, a band is labeled a tribute band if at least 75% of the songs you perform are songs performed by the original artist. Otherwise you will be considered a cover band. A 90’s grunge band covering 3-5 bands of that era is considered a cover band. We urge you to use the Profile Descriptor to distinguish your band from others.
FOR TALENT BUYERS
How do I search for a band for hire?
Tribute acts are listed according to the original artists, and you can further filter by geographic locations based on where the band is willing to perform (not where the band is from). Searches for bands are free without any barrier to use the site.
What if I don’t see an original artist listed in your database?
Perhaps we do not have any tribute bands associated with that act. We are happy to add the original artist to our database if it makes sense or if a new subscriber requires it.
Is the band profile information up to date?
We provide each band with an authorized login to the system. The artists are responsible for updating their information, keeping it fresh, relevant and helpful for the talent buyers. As memberships are annual, it is likely the bands’ info is updated or allow their memberships to expire.
Can fans buy tickets on the site? Can bands sell tickets for their events on the site?
We have event listings of tribute band concerts and created the link to the site where fans can buy tickets for these events. We provide a list view (our preference) or a calendar view of events. You can search by the original artist, by date, and by state or province. Discount ticket offers are designated by a blue dot following the act’s name.
We offer tribute bands the service to sell tickets for their events through our site. Our staff will manage your event set-up for both paid admissions as well as free tickets. For more information, click here.
We post news articles covering the tribute band industry. These articles come from other periodicals and we link to the original news stories. Topics include upcoming tribute concerts, tribute concert and band reviews and general news stories.
How do I contact you if I have questions?
Using our Contact Form is the best way to reach us. We will strive to respond to questions within 48 hours.
