So a little while back we met up with this lovely bloke Damian Costin at the bustling 123 Agency offices in Melbourne to have a great discussion about the role of bookings agents, what they do exactly, how someone might set themselves up as an agent and common mistakes to avoid.
Starting out in the seminal Australian rock band Motor Ace he performed with bands like Foo Fighters, Oasis and Blink 182 plus once met Joe Strummer from The Clash! After 7 years, 3 albums and countless tours both in Australia and overseas Motor Ace finished up and Damian immediately hit the ground running in the industry.
Damian is now a Director / Agent of 123 Agency, booking and managing some of Australia’s most exciting acts including Stonefield, Guy Pearce, Kingswood, The Delta Riggs, Ella Hooper, Darren Middleton (Powderfinger), Calling All Cars, Way Of The Eagle, Tim Omaji (Timomatic), and many others.
He offered up some really great advice and you can see his video content in the following courses:
