  • Who is Back On Stage app for?

    Back On Stage is for blue-collar musicians, bands and DJs who want an alternative to messy spreadsheets, email chains and text threads. Back On Stage is a booking and band management platform that streamlines the back-end of your music business, including schedules, setlists, communication, contacts, finances and more.

    Unlike other band management software, Back On Stage serves general business bands by merging clients, musicians and repertoire in one easy-to-use app.

  • Yes, you can! Inside the app, just click "Subscribe to my BOS Calendar" to have all your BOS bookings synced to your Google calendar.

  • You’re here to solve a problem - and we want to be your solution! We’ve analyzed a lot of data and we know that when you enter your credit card details, you are 300% more likely to give our app a fair try and maximize your free trial. Otherwise, you’re likely to procrastinate, waste your free trial and completely miss your opportunity to increase your gig capacity by 500%. We’re here to help you succeed, so go ahead and put little skin in the game. Our support team will help you onboard smoothly and after 30 days, you’ll roll right into your chosen subscription plan without any service disruptions. If you’re unhappy for any reason, our 90-day money-back guarantee has you covered. We’ll give you all your money back. Don’t believe us? Go try to find some online reviews of people complaining we didn’t give them their money back when they asked. There aren’t any 🙂

  • BOS is a web app, meaning you don't need to download anything form any app store. But it's easy to add the app to your home screen. Just open BOS on your mobile browser and click the "Share" button inside your browser window. Then click "Add to Home Screen". Now you can access BOS from your device easily.

  • BOS sends gig offers via email or SMS (SMS is an optional add-on with additional fees). Each of your team members will need to register with a valid email address in order to receive app notifications. You can also purchase our SMS add-on if you'd like to enable SMS notifications for your admins and musicians!

  • Inside Back On Stage, there are two different permission levels; admins and members. Admins have full system access and can see everything, whereas members can only access information pertaining to gigs you have booked them for. Within individual bookings they are booked for, they cannot see sensitive information like client details, financial information, the client contract and client invoice, nor will they see how much anyone else in the ensemble is being paid. As an admin, from any booking page, you can click on the Actions menu and select "View as non-admin" to preview the current booking the way your musicians and crew will see it. **NOTE: only our "Leader" plans allow you to add members and admins to your team.

  • You can accept online payments from your clients using our PayPal integration. You will need a verified PayPal business account to set this up. Once activated, you can accept client payments via credit card, debit card and PayPal account. Individual transaction fees vary by country, but are usually around 2.9% of the transaction amount. You can likely recoup these fees just by enabling the "Tip" option on your client invoices - we have observed that clients are more likely to tip when paying with credit card and extra revenue from tips easily covers processing fees.

  • Currently, our app and support are available in English only, however we support 25 currencies. If your currency is on this list, then your company can use Back On Stage:

    Australian dollar ( AUD - AUD ), Brazilian real ( BRL - BRL ), British pound ( GBP - £ ), Canadian dollar ( CAD - CAD ), Chinese yuan ( CNY - ¥ ), Czech koruna ( CZK - Kč ), Danish krone ( DKK - kr ), Euro ( EUR - € ), Hong Kong dollar ( HKD - HKD ), Hungarian forint ( HUF - Ft ), Indian rupee ( INR - ₹ ), Israeli new shekel ( ILS - ₪ ), Japanese yen ( JPY - ¥ ), Malaysian ringgit ( MYR - MYR ), Mexican peso ( MXN - MXN ), New Taiwan dollar ( TWD - TWD ), New Zealand dollar ( NZD - NZD ), Norwegian krone ( NOK - NOK ), Philippine peso ( PHP - ₱ ), Polish z?oty ( PLN - zł ), Russian ruble ( RUB - RUB ), Swedish krona ( SEK - SEK ), Swiss franc ( CHF - Fr ), Thai baht ( THB - ฿ ), United States dollar ( USD - $ )

  • Nope. You can cancel anytime with no penalties.

  • 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!

  • Of course. We don't just expect you to figure it all out alone. Our team will reach out to you after you sign up and offer whatever help you need to migrate your existing booking data and get your team set up. We have chat, email, phone and even video conference support! (Oh, and it's all free!)

  • Sign up only takes about 60 seconds. Once you're signed up, you'll set up your company first, which can take anywhere from 15-25 minutes (Don't worry, there's plenty of help along the way!). After that, you'll be ready to book your complimentary onboarding call with your account manager and start putting Back On Stage to the test.

  • Currently, we have integrations with PayPal (to facilitate your client payments and musician payouts), Google Calendar (so all your bookings stay in sync) and Twilio (so that you can get SMS notifications).

  • Yes! Our "show feed widget" allows you to publish all your "public" bookings to any page on your website, complete with show details, a poster and your ticket link.

  • Currently, BOS is primarily focused on booking management and automation. Not so much on show promotion, unfortunately. Although we enable you to schedule Facebook and Twitter posts and publish your booking feed to your website, your fan email list will still need to be managed elsewhere.

  • Currently, we do not offer a convenient way for you to track merchandise or ticket sales. We recommend great eCommerce sites like Shopify for that!
