What is ACE Music Booking Agency?
ACE Music Booking Agency is an established worldwide network of professional live music booking agents, artist management companies, music venues and active musicians. We provide services to clients and musicians wishing to hire and be hired for live music events and contracts.
How does ACE work for musicians?
Clients contact us to request musicians for their events or contract work, we match the request with our network of musicians and contact them via email with the booking opportunity. The email contains a link for the musicians to review further details and apply for the opportunity either directly to the client or via a shortlist.
Joining the ACE Network is FREE and we do not take any commission from musician quotes.
Do you have reviews from musicians already on the ACE Network?
Yes! Below are a few of the reviews we have received…
“We’ve managed to get repeat bookings in some fab venues because of ACE. A handy resource for bands like ours that want to stay busy.”
“Only joined recently. So far everything great. Have 3 shows booked now. Have to still play them though!”
– Andrew Reynolds
“The booking was a great deal and everything went really good! Thank you so much! I’m looking forward for more bookings and these kind of events!”
“Lots of gigs are coming through and I’ve been very impressed with how busy the dashboard is. It’s great you are providing this service, the subscription is something we are considering especially with the reasonable fees.”
– Bethany Jane & Bro
“We’ve had a great time with ACE Direct. Well worth the money. We’ve managed to book 3 or 4 gigs through you guys and we’ve also seen a lot of others that look amazing that we’ll definitely apply for once we’re free for a long period of time.”
– Foxgloves Duo
“I have used ACE before. They send me requests (that fit my profile), I’ve landed 75% of them and most of them have been high dollar. Last one was a trio gig that paid almost 2 grand.”
…and many more!

How and when do musicians get paid?
The fee musicians quote is 100% the amount musicians receive when selected.
ACE clients have two options when selecting how they receive their quotes which affects how payment to musicians are made:
Direct booking requests: ACE Direct subscriber musicians can contact the client directly via email/telephone with their information and quote. The client will pay their chosen musicians directly as quoted and agreed.
Managed booking requests: Musicians provide the client with a quote which is added to their shortlist. When a client accepts a quote they proceed to the booking agreement stage. Here they enter additional details, sign a booking agreement and make a payment into the ACE escrow to secure your services. You will also enter your details and sign a booking agreement. ACE will then contact both parties with confirmation and all the contact details provided. You and the client are free to discuss any additional event details as required. Providing there are no cancellations payment is made to you from the ACE escrow as scheduled on the booking agreement.
What types of musicians do you accept?
We have all types of musicians from Jazz Swing to Heavy Metal and from solo musicians to full sized orchestras on our worldwide network!
Can I sign-up multiple different groups?
Yes! It is recommended each unique group is added individually so that they can receive live music booking opportunities which suit and each has a separate website profile with appropriate media and information for clients to view.
Do you get booking requests for ‘Country / Genre / Type / Event’?
We receive live music booking requests all over the world for all genres of live music. Opportunities are for a wide variety of musicians and for all types of events; from weekday retirement home functions and background wedding ceremony events to wedding receptions, parties, festivals, corporate events, cruise-ships and international hotel residencies.
