Frequently Asked Questions

What is BookLive?
BookLive is a digital musician manager. Think of it like Siri, but for your band. Instead of managing all of your clients, musicians and performances with spreadsheets, emails, and texts, BookLive does it all for you in one simple app that cuts down on planning time.
Does BookLive take a fee from my gigs?
No. When you use BookLive to accept credit cards, our credit card processor (Stripe) adds a 3% fee to your total. BookLive lets you choose to either add that on top of the total amount, or pay that from the gig fee. This money goes directly to Stripe to facilitate credit card payments which can get you paid within 5 minutes of a client signing your contract.
What does BookLive help with?
BookLive helps with every aspect of running a successful musical group. It helps set your group up for success with a price list, digital contracts, credit card payment processing, bandmate management/scheduling, client communication, venue management, and more!
Who needs a BookLive account?
  • Bandleaders need a BookLive Pro account to manage their groups.
  • Bandmates need a Free Forever account to access setlists and group communication.
  • Clients DO NOT need a BookLive account to access contracts, invoices and client portals. They receive special links via email to access these features.
Does BookLive remind my bandmates to respond?
Yes! You can set BookLive up to remind your bandmates to respond to an availability request if they haven't responded after a certain period of time. Most groups set this to 24 hours, and you can disable this feature.
Can my bandmates see each other's payments?
No. Payment information for all bandmates can only be seen by the bandleader. Each bandmate will only see the amount they will be paid.
