"Indispensable for Bandleaders and Production Companies!...The time I have saved using this system can not be overstated. Use this and the only question you will have is what to do with all the extra free time you gain :) Highly recommended!"

Don W

"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."

Frequently Asked Questions

We've answered a few questions here, but hit the chat button to connect with us if you've got more!

  • What are Booked Roles?

    A role is any instrument or job position in your music company or band. For example, in a 5-piece rock band, the Roles you may have could include 'Vocalist', 'Bass', 'Drums', 'Guitar' and 'Keyboard'. When you create bookings, you'll need people on your team to fulfill these roles, so you'll need to book them.

    With Back On Stage, you can automate this using our Auto-Book or Shotgun booking methods. Our robots send gig offers and reminders to your team, and track all the responses for you, saving you lots of time and stress. You just set up your preferred call list for each role and leave the rest to us.

    Booked Roles are consumed only when our robots successfully book someone for a role. We deliver results, or you don't pay! Note that you can also book roles manually by simply adding roles to bookings and selecting a musician. This does not use your booked roles credits.

  • Why am I billed based on booked roles?

    We want to help you grow your music business and provide the means to measure your success! Arbitrary factors like your company's amount of members, songs, contacts, or bookings may not reflect an accurate picture of the success of your music business.

    The true indicator of growth is how many members you can regularly book onto your gigs - Booked Roles.

    The more members you book, the harder our Auto-Book System works for you, saving you valuable time and money.

  • How many Booked Roles do I need?

    It depends.

    Booked Roles are counted in the month the role is booked (not the month of the actual booking). For example, if Dave accepted your gig offer on August 15th for a gig in August, it will count toward your Booked Roles Credits for August. If you sent Dave the gig offer in March and he accepted it then, it would count toward your Booked Roles Credits for March.

    On a monthly subscription, your Booked Roles Credits reset every month. On an annual plan, your credits last the entire year. This means that if you have a seasonal business with concentrated hiring, an annual plan provides more value. If your role bookings are consistent throughout the year, a monthly plan may suit you.

    To calculate how many Booked Roles you need per month:

    (Number of gigs per month) X (Number of musicians per gig) = Booked Roles

    If you're unsure, you can start on our basic "Leader" plan and see how it goes.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've answered a few questions here, but hit the chat button to connect with us if you've got more!

  • What is auto-book and how does it work?

    Auto-Book is your BOS super weapon. It is your digital assistant that will contact all your musicians and crew to book them for gigs.

    Auto-Book will continuously send gig offers to your musicians and crew until it gets an answer (they accept or decline). If a member declines your gig, Auto-Book moves on to the next member in line. You can specify the order in which the system contacts each crew member by reordering the members in each role’s call order.

    You can also adjust the frequency at which gig offers will be sent and the offer expiry time inside the “Auto-Book Settings” section at the bottom of this page.

    What is a gig offer? It is an email with all the important gig details that includes a link for the recipient to follow in order to respond.

  • A gig offer is an email that you (or BOS) send to your musicians in order to confirm their availability and book them for a gig. It contains all important gig details, (like time, date, location, pay and so on) as well as a link to respond. Musicians must click on the link and login to Back On Stage in order to accept or decline a gig offer.

  • When you send out gig offers, you can set the expiry time. Once an offer expries, that musician can no longer take the gig.

  • Nope. There is an option to book band members manually - so if you know who you want, just add them to the booking.

  • You bet! We are so confident that you'll love Back On Stage that we have a 90-day money-back guarantee. If, for any reason, you decide the BOS is not a great fit for you, just let us know within 90 days of your free trial ending and we'll refund all your subscription payments. How's that for great service!
