A Set List Maker From The Future

Leave your folder at home. Keep your team on the same page and share PDFs, MP3s, keys, tempos, videos, notes and more, all in one place (beta)

The dance between multiple file sharing apps ends here. Banish chart and version confusion for good.

Finally, a set list tool built to solve the endless music library chaos that every event band has endured since the beginning of time.

  • 01 Add your songs and files

    Add your songs to your "Repertoire" area. Attach resources like MP3s, video links, notes, tempo markings and more. Even attach PDF sheet music and assign parts to their appropriate musician.

  • Drag and drop to reorder songs, add notes and set break indicators. Even assign vocalists in the band to various songs. A time calculator shows you how long your set list will be.

  • Simply attach your set list to a booking and voila! Your musicians now have access to an ordered list of songs, complete with all the key, tempo and sheet music they need. The set list works on any device with an internet connection. Optionally, musicians can download all their PDFs in a click if they prefer their own app for displaying sheet music on the gig.

 

Back On Stage is the only app that distributes sheet music to each musician and couples recordings with your song catalogue

Stop wasting your time and money in a desperate effort to manually keep your Dropbox, Google Drive, spreadsheets and song notes in sync. There's a better (and cheaper) way to keep your set lists in check:

Avg time to prepare 1 set list 60 min
Avg time to prepare 50 set lists (just 1 gig per week) 50 hrs
Time to prepare 50 set lists with BOS (5 min per set)4h 10m

"The BOS team took the time to walk me through the system and things have been AWESOME! Our customers have been impressed but not only our response time but our ability to follow up on things. BOS has been a game changer for my team...I wish I would have found it sooner."
