Who books travel for the artist?
If you are providing flights as part of your contract agreement, the artist manager may prefer to book the flights for the artist and then ask for reimbursement. On occasions, the artist’s manager may request that you book the flights directly, but as a rule, never book travel without speaking to the manager first.
How do I know if an artist's calendar is open on a certain day?
You can get a good idea of an artist’s availability by checking the artist’s profile and looking at the tour dates listed on the Replenish Productions website.

Will your artist donate their time for our fundraising event?
Unfortunately, we don’t schedule any of our artists without covering their expenses. However, there are still ways to schedule a benefit event that can work for both sides. By seeking sponsors to help cover the artists expenses, all ticket revenue can be retained by the benefit and used as an effective fundraiser. The event sponsor(s) will gain favorable exposure by association with the cause and with the artist, so it can serve as both a tax write-off and great publicity for a local business.
