How has Band Pencil helped you?
Band pencil has been revolutionary to our management! The best feature is the band builder function - you wouldn't believe the kerfuffle I used to have to go through to manage this side of things before. I also love how easy the booking system is for sending contracts and invoices, and the online portal for both clients and musicians to log onto. I know all our musicians are loving it too - they've all mentioned how great it is to be able to log on at any time and see what gigs they have booked in, as well as the details without having to check in with me. I'd really recommend it - I've tried so many CRMs and this beats them all!

What did you use before Band Pencil?
Giggio.

Booking musicians and invoicing, event tracking, travel arrangements, Client contracts, Setlist sharing, equipment tracking and allocation, budgeting and major stress relief! Band Pencil has literally changed everything! Managing one band was a nightmare in itself, whereas now, I can keep tabs on a hundred musicians with ease, they can invoice and have all the info in the same place, the clients are happy with how slick everything is and running multiple bands and options is a dream! Can’t recommend it enough and can’t do without it!

Boujee Music
How has Band Pencil helped you?
Band Pencil has been a complete game-changer for booking musicians and managing our gigs. As a live music agency, we have lots of bands, musicians and bookings to keep track of, and it can suck up an incredible amount of time. However, Band Pencil has made all this so much more efficient, and our gigs run more slickly than ever before. From our admin side, Band Pencil is easy to use and understand, and is clearly built by someone who understands the function industry and running bands. And for the musicians themselves, we have only had positive feedback on how easy and clear it is to track the gigs they have booked, and see all the gig details they need. We also really appreciate how helpful Simon was in migrating all our gig data from a different platform into Band Pencil. All-in-all, Band Pencil is a no brainer for anybody running a band or live music agency!

What did you use before Band Pencil?
Liveforce, and before that Excel, of course!

Band Builder Overview - a simple but incredibly effective way of seeing which musicians are booked, and what roles need to be filled.

Band Pencil is an excellent site. It feels great to have a system that is thoughtfully designed for the purpose performing music at events. I have always had to adapt other CRMs to try to meet this need, but Band Pencil is the best by far. The developer is also quite responsive and has already implemented a recent feature request! This was amazing.
The London Function Band
How has Band Pencil helped you?
Band Pencil is an absolute life-saver for me. It pulls together and simplifies so much of the annoying aspects of being a band leader. Having all of the key information about the show in a single location for all the musicians, including logistics, setlists, pay, equipment needed - it just makes everything so much easier. And being able to duplicate previous events (gigs) makes setting up new ones much faster and simpler. It even helps with managing our rehearsals and for bringing new members up to speed. I have links to a reference list of songs and recordings for learning, as well as to other resources like recordings of previous shows, promotional materials and logos, etc - and the musicians then have everything in one place (and no longer have any excuses about why they didn't learn the material :-)). The client and contract management functions are brilliant and my customers love the portal and easy access to the contract and invoice. I even include hyperlinks to standard promo packages and materials for our bookers so they have access to them for advertising, posters and promotion. Honestly I could go on for pages, but really all I can say is - if you're not using Band Pencil, you are absolutely missing out!

What did you use before Band Pencil?
Group texts, emails, phone calls, anger, frustration, slaps upside the head, thrown drumsticks…
