Red & Black Musicians Marketplace is a new Facebook group we've set up opening up an additional channel of communication to help musicians find musicians.
We've recognised artist, clients and business intermediaries approach us from all angles and require a vast range of options to suit different booking options and scenarios. We've categorised these into a Deal Code system so we can recognise and respond to these requirements more quickly and effectively. This allows us and our clients a greater degree of flexibility in terms of how we do business.
Deal Codes #1 - #3 are the most frequent and integral to our business. These are, to a certain extent, dictated by who shoulders most of the Risk Factor (the client, the agent, the label).
Deal Codes #4 - #5 are peripheral and a rarity. Deal Code #6 is an elusive, paradoxical deal code for people like Tim @ Essence Music Agency who want the world for nothing.
