DJ Agencies and Management Companies

I don't use agencies very often, and, frankly, often wonder what their clients think they get out of using them. They seem to have a benefit for busy, well-established DJs but most don't seem to do very much to promote DJs who aren't well-known. They're useful to have if you're an aspiring DJ as they act as a filter for promoters - if you're signed to a respected agency you must be fairly good.
