Why should we hire CEA?

Our transparent service is designed to secure the best entertainment for the lowest price. We ensure that your budget remains in tact while the level of talent increases. We promise that we will get the act that is best for your event.

How do you get the leverage to secure the bands at such a steep discount?

StarEvents is our parent company that produces festivals throughout the Midwest. They specialize in raising money and awareness for non-profit groups by primarily producing summer festivals. This relationship provides with valuable insight and leverage when it comes to booking talent.

Can you guarantee your work?

Absolutely! We are the only agency we know that will not take a penny for our services if something goes wrong… GUARANTEED! When our clients book entertainment through CEA, they can have piece of mind knowing that we have faith in our services. If we secure talent and theydo not fulfill the contract, we will not recieve a penny.

How much do you charge?

That is a great question and we have a simple answer… We charge 20% of the final contracted price for talent we secure… not a penny more. We use our knowledge and size to negotiate the best price possible. Our average client typically saves between 20% and 30% off of what other agencies charge.

Do you represent or exclusively control any talent?

We do not represent any artists which keeps us extremely unbiased when it comes to securing talent. We want to provide our clients with the best acts possible… and we feel that trying to force a small group of entertainers into all gigs… does not make sense for most.

Does the entertainment you hire pay you a commission for getting the gig?

No! We never ask for a commission from the talent. It’s what, in the industry, they call ‘double-dipping’… and we don’t believe in it.
