Performing artists, ensembles and bands interested in performing at the Count Basie Theatre should send a promotional kit to: Programming Department, Count Basie Theatre, 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701, firstname.lastname@example.org. Before sending any materials, artists and managers are encouraged to look at the event listings page on this web site to determine if the theatre actually programs the genre that you or your artist works in.
Promotional kits should include:
- an artist bio
- black and white or color photos
- an audio or video recording
- recent press clippings and reviews
The theatre looks at hundreds of artists and ensembles each year to select the handful that will actually be engaged as headliners or opening acts. Finding just the right mix of music, dance and theatre programs each year that can sell 1,550 seats per show is not easy. Even when the theatre is interested in an artist, it may take years to schedule something. Therefore, please do not take it personally when we do not respond to your mailing, please be patient, and please put the theatre's programming staff on your mailing list, so we have a chance to see a "live" performance.
