Anyone Can Book a Gig


Anyone Can Book a Gig is Music Works International’s educational program, offering a number of resources and programs to teach artists how to represent themselves and book better paying shows without the need for an agent.

Music Works International and Katherine McVicker come together with decades of experience in booking and routing tours, marketing and branding artists, producing concerts, and more. 

In her 30-year career specializing in jazz and world music, Katherine has helped to develop and support the international livelihoods of a wide range of artists, including Grammy award-winning artists like Norah Jones, Wayne Shorter, Joshua Redman, Branford Marsalis, Richard Bona, Dianne Reeves, Jason Moran, Kurt Elling, Christian McBride, Jon Cleary, Vijay Iyer, Lizz Wright, and Samara Joy. We took the knowledge, shortcuts, and hard-knocks accumulated over years and rolled it into Anyone Can Book A Gig.  

After workshops and private consultations with artists, we knew we could create this course to help musicians develop the confidence they need to book their own shows, market and promote gigs, and make a plan for successful live performance careers.
