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.
