Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I book through Onstage?

Onstage are the entertainment experts.  We’ve been organising entertainment for corporate events and private functions for over 35 years, so we know who will be right for your brief.  Critically, we also know about venues, production and logistics .What can go wrong, what questions to ask and what needs to be arranged to ensure everything goes smoothly.  Onstage bring years of industry knowledge and experience to take the worry and stress out of booking the perfect entertainment for your event. 

I found lots of bands and other performers on Google and YouTube.  Why should I book through Onstage?

Google is a useful search engine, but it doesn’t provide assurances to the reliability and professionalism of those who come up in the search – anyone can have a pretty website!  With Speakers and Entertainers you must know who you’re dealing with. They’re not chair covers where one can be compared to the next. People and performers are complex and the team at Onstage will manage the entertainers, ensure they’re in the right place at the right time and deliver the appropriate style of performance for your audience.

What type of entertainment do you book?

We’re a one-stop shop.  If it’s entertainment or speakers – we can book it for you.  We know the best bands, comedians, MC’s, guest speakers, feature shows, celebrities, classical ensembles, aerial acts, dancers, roving performers, DJ’s and so much more.  And if they don’t exist – we create it for you.  Just ask ..

Is it more expensive to book through Onstage?

Actually, you’ll often save money by booking through us!  And you’ll certainly save time and stress.  Think of us as a wholesaler of talent.  As we’re working with performers so often, they give us a good rate, so even with our booking fee, the total fee you pay will often be the same or less than dealing with the performer directly.  And you’re also getting the benefit of our 35 years of experience in the business as well as our finely tuned systems for making sure everything goes perfectly.

I have a great concept for our event but can’t find any entertainment “off the shelf” to suit.  Can you help?

Yes, yes, yes!  Talk with us and we will bring in the right creative talent to create a custom performance just for you.  We specialise in bringing your vision to life.

Will the performer I book have public liability insurance?

Yes, for your peace of mind, we ensure that your performer has a current public liability insurance policy.  In fact, we are one of the few agencies in the country that do this (may say they do!).

Do you only organise entertainment for events in Brisbane and Sydney?

We have offices in Brisbane and Sydney, but we have a team of talented entertainers across the country. We can book entertainment for your event no matter where it is in Australia or overseas.
