ESP's entertainment booking services are an alternative to the traditional agency based services. Our services are brokerage based. While the differences may seem subtle, they are important. Traditional agencies promote within their own roster of acts. ESP has long standing relationships with local, national and international agents and agencies and utilizes their talent pools to offer the client a wider choice and determine the "bottom line" price for them. This in house experience and our brokerage based philosophy, makes for what we feel is an un-biased and value added approach when you are looking to book entertainment for your event....
In addition to live entertainment, ESP also can provide a wide range of production services and, can accommodate almost any sized corporate, festival, wedding and functions were audio, visual, staging, event lighting and other production services are required.
