After 25 years of doing celebrity bookings, often there are options and elements that we can ask for to help you and save on event costs. Matt Stevens Entertainment regularly gets travel fees reduced, and we can often get talent to provide some technical items themselves. We always include things like a meet and greet at the event in our agreements. We can offer celebrities multiple, well-organized bookings, and can often help route talent to save costs on travel and expenses.
Matt Stevens Entertainment can give you a complete list of ALL the active performers, speakers, actors, and athletes in your price range, not just a limited list that an agency needs to get work for. We will recommend performers, speakers, and celebrities with a proven track record on doing great events for clients. We are not obligated to provide dates for any talent and will only recommend who we feel will do the best job for our clients. Again, you are our client, not the talent.
Matt Stevens Entertainment has produced shows that include: Dionne Warwick, Three Dog Night, Joan Rivers, The Dixie Chicks, The Coasters, Mike Ditka, Trace Adkins, the Doobie Brothers, Greg Louganis, The Judds, Coach Bob Knight, Amy Grant, Joe Theisman, Asleep At The Wheel, Mackenzie Phillips, Marty Stuart, The Platters, Ivana Trump, Mark Chesnutt, Emilio, Archie Manning, Tracey Lawrence, The Drifters, Stedman Graham, Frankie Avalon, Alabama.
Typically a universally recognizable celebrity can range in price from $10,000 to over $1,000,000 for major superstars. Matt Stevens Entertainment can give you a custom list of the talent in the best type or style for your event, as well as your price range. Prices can vary depending on location, time of the year, and who the event is for.
What is your talent budget and/or overall budget? Remember the costs that are not covered by the talent fee include, but are not limited to: air and ground transportation if needed, accommodations, catering, artist rider requirements, technical production, and labor. Matt Stevens Entertainment can estimate these costs for you before you sign any agreements or contracts.
Matt Stevens Entertainment believes that it is important for our clients to know all of their options. Our business is to keep current on your options and what the most successful talent would be for your event. Most agencies only push acts that they need to get work for to keep them on their roster. MSE does not have that restriction; YOU are our client not the talent! As in most industries, when a company does volume, they get better prices for their clients. Once you have decided on the type of entertainment that fits your event, MSE will provide you with a custom list of artists/celebrities that fit your request and your budget.
