Booking Agency Looks to Connect Artists with Gigs Without at No Cost to Artists
Altus Entertainment, an entertainment booking agency, is now conducting an open call for new talent who wish to be featured on their popular online talent marketplace and to promoted to the booking agency’s buyers. Altus Entertainment represents an array of talent from across the globe, exposing them to a wider range of event opportunities and helping them land them with well-paying gigs at corporate and private parties, conference events non-profit functions, and more.

Altus is searching for new talent at a moment in which, as a recent article on PR Newswire described, it is now more difficult than ever for independent artists and entertainers to make a living. As the article explained, many artists are reporting that when they do land performance jobs, they have not been paid for their work, or have received late payments or payments lower than what was previously agreed upon.
With years working in the event industry, Altus Entertainment appreciates that talent depends on security, which is what they believe they can offer any artist or performer who chooses to host their profile with them. Altus booking agents work to ensure that any artist who takes an engagement through their platform receives full and fair payment in a timely manner.
Because the agency offers non-exclusive agreements, performers can still pursue engagements through other channels, generate and book their own leads, advertise themselves through alternate agencies, and secure their own bookings without paying a commission to Altus. The agency’s business model is designed to make money through bookings rather than by charging fees to the talent. The agency gets paid when the artist gets paid, which they believe creates a healthier artist-agency relationship, and aligns the interests of both parties, focusing on getting gigs instead of listings to generate revenues. This approach makes the Altus relationship more of a partnership, one that is supportive of entertainers.
Whether the client is part of a group act, or is a solo performer, Altus executives believe the partnership will result in performers seeing interest from an expanded audience of potential clients and generating new bookings. Altus Entertainment works with entertainers of every stripe, including dancers, live musicians, DJs, illusionists, kids’ entertainers, speakers, comedians, celebrity impersonators, installation artists, cirque performers, storytellers, and more.
Altus Entertainment has been the connector between the planners of corporate and private events and diverse American talent for years. They currently have over 10,000 artists on their platform.
An agency executive summarized the Altus approach: “We are an online talent agency that gives artists exposure to a broad range of corporate and private entertainment buyers and event planners. At no cost to the artist, we create listings and market them to prospective buyers through direct marketing and expert SEO. It’s easier for the event planners and more profitable for the artists, and in the even, everyone is better for the partnership.”
