"Hands down the best app I've found for booking your band!"

back on stage bandleaders reviews

Nikki Green (Bandleader from San Diego)

This is hands down the best app I've found for booking your band. It keeps gigs organized, tracks leads, reminds you of follow ups and tasks, auto-sends gig offers to musicians, and makes it very easy to create invoices and contracts to send to clients. The interface is very clean and simple and uses a lot of modern technology.


back on stage benefits

"Running a band will be easy and fun"
...said NOBODY, EVER!

While 17Hats, Gmail, Trello, Dropbox, Monday.com, Slack, Planning Center, Quickbooks and Docusign are all great, they cost money to use and they're a huge waste of time.

Just think about all the confusion and frustration you and your band members face fumbling through the multitude of apps you're using, just to find the details for this Friday's gig...

The truth is, these apps weren't made for your band and the time you're wasting trying to make them work for you would be much better spent actually gigging.

BUT EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW THIS, THERE'S STILL
ONE BIG PROBLEM ACTUALLY,

3 BIG PROBLEMS...

porblem 1

Managing people is annoying...

Don’t you just hate the back and forth trying to confirm your band members for each gig?

Perhaps you can relate to the agonizing task of chasing your team around with texts, WhatsApp messages and emails, then manually assembling all that chaos into a messy spreadsheet, just to discover that your drummer messed up and double booked himself - then you start all over!

On gig day, to add insult to injury, you are bombarded with a hundred texts asking you “where’s the gig?” and, “what time is sound check?”

And you HATE being glued to your phone when you’re trying to set up your show and please your client!

problem 2

Getting paid and sending payouts sucks (Your not an accountant!)

Many bandleaders struggle with creating contracts and invoices that are needed to get their band paid.

Like “What do I need to put on my invoice anyway and is there some kind of contract template I can use to save me time and protect my band?”

But getting paid is only half the battle. Making sure your bandmates are all paid on time and keeping track of these payments so your tax agency doesn’t destroy you later is exhausting!

problem 3

So...much...music

And when it’s gig time, damn, there’s so many details in the music.

How do you make sure everyone learned the right version of each tune and knows all your unique intros and endings?

Even with a freakishly organized Dropbox or Google Drive, will your entire band really be re-downloading all the latest sheet music and comparing file versions before each gig? NOPE!

You’ve already spent so much time putting the gig together, do you really have time to be the music librarian too?

NOW IF THESE PROBLEMS SOUND A LITTLE CLOSE TO HOME, YOU'RE PROBABLY IN ONE OF THESE 2 CAMPS...

I LOVE organizing things, but I'm seriously time poor trying to do #allTheThings that come with managing my band

OR

I HATE ORGANIZING.
PERIOD.

If you're #2, I felt that in my soul, so let's put an end to this, right here and now, without wasting any more time because...

YOU CAN put your band member and crew scheduling on auto-pilot and give band members 24/7 access to gig details (because you don't have time for manual scheduling and "where's the gig?" texts)

YOU CAN automate client contracts and invoices and even automatically pay your musicians after the gig (because who likes chasing clients for money or being pestered for musician payments)

YOU CAN use smart set lists to manage all your sheet music, reference recordings and song data (because you've got better things to do than clean up your Dropbox for the 1000'th time!)

Do You Think All Those High Profile Event Bands Doing Hundreds Of Gigs A Year Just Use Gmail and Spreadsheets?

Even With Their Expensive Admin Assistants, They Still Need Project Management Software.

and you know what's better than generic project management software?

...G.A.S!!!

reuben - owner of Back On Stage app

Hey there, I'm Reuben

I'm an award-winning musician, bandleader and live music entertainment mentor for owners of professional music groups looking to scale their business the CEO way.

The joy and fun of playing in a band lured me in from a young age, and while I was always in love with music and the community of great friends it brought me, leading my own 9-piece event band forced me to come to grips with managing conflicting schedules, chasing large rosters of subs, doing the dreaded bookkeeping and having to organize hundreds of details on each gig!

And if there's one thing running a 6 figure business teaches you... you need systems and templates for EVERYTHING.

I mean, re-inventing the wheel for every gig is simply inefficient. And when you really start looking to scale with hiring an admin team, or creating more bands, they are only as good as the systems you have in place.

You didn't start your band just to create another job for yourself, but to truly bring joy and happiness to the people you entertain whilst attracting more income and freedom.

So as cliché as it sounds, it's truly time to start working smarter not harder... and the templates and all-in-one system that Back On Stage offers are the ultimate time-saving, smart choice shortcut.

BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT...

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I Sync My BOS Gig Calendar With Google Calendar?

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

Is There An App For iPhone or Android?

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.

How Does BOS Notify My Team Of Gig Offers

BOS sends gig offers via email. Each of your team members will need to register with a valid email address in order to receive app notifications. In the future, we plan to build a mobile app to allow for push notifications too!

What Details Can All My Team Members See?

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.

Can I Accept Electronic Payments From Clients and Is There A Fee?

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.

Does BOS Work In My Country And With My Currency?

Currenctly, 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 - $ )

Is There A Contract?

Nope. You can cancel anytime with no penalties.

Is There A Guarantee?

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!

Is There Support?

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!)

What Happens After I Sign Up?

Sign up only takes about 60 seconds - please note you'll be asked to provide you billing details so that in 30-days, you can smoothly transition out of your free trial without any hiccups. Once you are signed up, you'll need to set up your company first, which can take anywhere from 15-45 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.

What Other Tools And Websites Does Back On Stage Integrate With?

Currently, we have integrations with PayPal (to facilitate your client payments and musician payouts), Google Calendar (so all your bookings stay in sync) and Hootsuite (so that you can schedule social media posts).

Can The Calendar Be Linked to My Website?

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.

Can I Manage My Fan Email List and Campaigns Inside BOS?

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.

Can I Track Ticket and Merch Sales With BOS?

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!

AND IF YOU'RE NOT 100% SATISFIED...

90-day guarantee

I get it. I’m a bandleader and musician just like you. I understand the risk you feel when deciding to invest in new software. You work hard for your money and don’t want to waste it on something that you could just DIY and piece together on your own.

But I’m super proud of this product I created and I know anyone who buys it and implements the systems will be thrilled with their purchase.

That’s why I’m offering a 90-day money-back guarantee. While I can’t guarantee that these tools will quadruple your number of gigs or have you solidly booked out till 2025, I can guarantee your satisfaction with the quality of the software and support plus the immense time and stress it will save you.

Of course, If you’re not happy with Back On Stage, I will refund your money within 90 days of your purchase.

Seriously, is going back to running your band with multiple apps that weren't made for bands even an option?
