LIQUID BLUE - THE WORLD'S "MOST TRAVELLED BAND"

quotes

I used to spend 3 hours per gig on the front end. Since using Back On Stage, it takes me 15-30 minutes to get everything set and scheduled for a gig.

Whoever thought running a band would be easy
...HAD NO IDEA!

Last night, the band was on fire. You played hard, sweat through your shirt and made some incredible memories. How lucky are you to be a musician, just doing what you love!

Now it’s morning and you’re waking up groggy and tired. You reach for your phone and quickly realize your day has already been set out for you. Three new gig inquiries, one bridezilla message and a few pestering bandmates who are hoping to get paid ASAP for last night’s gig.

You really need to make some time for date night with your partner and your parents haven’t seen you in ages. The chores are piling up and you still have three new tunes to learn for your next gig.

You’re tired of running the show by yourself and if you don’t get some help soon, you’re going to burn out!

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

3 BIG PROBLEMS...

porblem 1

Everything is so scattered

Set lists, emails, contracts, invoices, band rosters, payout reports and the rest are all in different places. You’ve got 20 different apps, each performing a small task for your gig-booking workflow.

With so much fragmentation, it’s impossible ask anyone to help you, because how could they possibly learn your hodgepodge system?

You bootstrapped your band management with all the “free” apps but now your free time is a thing of the past…so is free really better?

problem 2

Scheduling and paying musicians is a nightmare

Sending out gig offers and tracking who responded and who didn’t, who’s booked and who’s not, is like chewing glass. Back and forth text and emails, messy spreadsheets and hasty schedule mess-ups make your life a drag.

After the gig, you painstakingly process a stack of musician invoices. Then you’ve got to remember to pay everyone on time AND keep clean records so you’re not screwed at tax time. Speaking of tax time…

problem 3

Tax time is horrible!

You’re tired of wasting hours (or days) or your life each year combing through payout reports to calculate totals per musician so you can generate the necessary year-end tax forms.

It’s so painful that you procrastinate until the last minute, then sit there crying over your stack of paperwork wishing there was a better way.

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

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

OR

I HATE RUNNING THE SHOW.
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 consolidate your booking tasks so you can efficiently manage invoices, contracts, set lists, band rosters, payouts and more all from ONE place (because your scattered systems are costing you time and money)

YOU CAN put your musician scheduling, gig offer tracking AND payouts on auto-pilot (because who has days to spend slaving over emails)

YOU CAN generate year-end payout reports with a click (because tax time needs to be over already!)

Veteran sound technician raves about Back On Stage

quotes

Prior to this everything was so scattered. Now, everything I need is in one place and it's easy to use.

reuben - owner of Back On Stage app

Hi, I’m Reuben.

5 years ago, I was a tired bandleader, just like you.

For years, I had scoured the internet in search of a program that I could use to run my band better. Anything to organize the chaos so I could just enjoy music again.

But one sunny summer day, I had had enough. I looked at my business partner and slammed my first on the table. “I’m so tired of this grind. If there isn’t a better way to do this, I quit.”

And guess what? I couldn’t find a better way. So I quit.

The END!

....

Fast forward to today.

Surprise - I was joking. I didn’t actually quit. My band is alive and well and we’ve just pulled through COVID with a record year ahead of ourselves.

And how is that possible?

Back in that fist-slam moment, it dawned on me.

For most bands and artists, it's not the music holding them back. It's the business. But learning to run a great business takes time. And too much time spent on the business makes Johnny a dull performer.

What all bandleaders need is a SIMPLE way to run their business so that they can have the freedom to actually do music again!

That’s why my partner, Eric and I created Back On Stage app, with a mission to give you the freedom to focus on your music by making the business so easy that it practically runs itself.

It will cure your PDF hell and endless email chains. And it can even pay your band members for you automatically. But do you want to know what makes it really special?

The holy grail is the Auto-Book tool, which can be loaded with all your musicians, then it methodically goes through your entire call list, contacting each band member one by one until it has confirmed someone to play each instrument for your next gig.

And it can do this all while you’re asleep. Or on a date. Or spending quality time with your family.

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?
