About

bandsondemand.org is owned by Bands on Demand Ltd.

Our aim is to deliver a simple, effective and low cost way of connecting artists, performers, musicians and bands with the individuals and venues who wish to book them.

We have a very low subscription cost (free in 2018) of only £25 per year to cover operating costs of the site.

We are not an agency and we only take a £10 booking fee. If an artist adds this to their regular charge rate, it makes the site effectively free.

We use an escrow service, Transpact, for the fees. This is to protect both the artist and the client. By using escrow, the fee is paid and secure ahead of the gig. For the artist, they know before they commit time, energy and effort, that the fee is available. For the client, the booking fee is secured against non-attendance or if the contract is not fulfilled. Transpact is an FCA registered escrow service and handles any disputes. There is a small fee payable by each party for this service of only £2.99 each. bandsondemand.org receives no commission nor plays any part in the contract fee or transaction.
