Update on Advent Christmas 2013 with Future of Forestry!

For nearly the last decade, we've been doing the Advent Christmas Tour, and every year is an incredible experience on the road with you all. But what that also means is that the band loses valuable time home with family for the vast majority of the Christmas season. So this year, we've decided to release a new Advent Christmas EP, but will not be touring during the month of December. We are really excited to be with family and to experience all of the the things that we've missed out on for so many years! But we are also excited that we have the opportunity to put out Advent Christmas EP Volume 3 for you to enjoy during your holiday season!

However, below is helpful information about booking inquiries for shows down the road!

Email us at booking@futureofforestry.com with your request. Be sure to include:
- Your Name
- Your venue or organization name (with website)
- Your venue or organization address
- Your telephone contact


BOOKING FAQ’S

Is this a booking agency?
No. We are currently a self-booked band, so you are not dealing with some corporate booking agency, you are going straight to the band. We handle booking grassroots style and try to make it as personal as possible.

What kind of venues do you play?
We play anything from secular bars to Churches. All we need is a building with a stage, power, and decent acoustics. We usually tour with our own sound and lighting.

How much does it cost?
We usually do ticketed events that pay for the band to play the event. Each tour and/or gig will require a financial guarantee to the tour/band depending on the season, location, and details of the event. Please email us so we can determine how to make the event possible with you.

Do I need to be a promoter too book the band?
Yes, and no. We commonly work with volunteers, pastors, and general fans of the band. With that, some have been incredible shows and others have been “un-incredible.” Concert events rely heavily on the promoter’s ability to determine and find an audience, and then to find multiple ways of getting word out. You don’t need to be a professional promoter, but some type of experience in the area can make a big difference. Most of all, your willingness to work hard with us is what matters. Audiences don’t just show up randomly. They show up because someone like you told them to!

Do you provide materials for promotion?
Yes, we provide several digital media. For tours, we have a tour poster for promoters to download. We also provide videos for internet promotion. We do NOT mail posters and flyers, so anything in print must be printed by the promoter.

Do you only play tours, or can I book the band for a specific event?
Over the last few years, the band has mostly done specific tours during the year. The best thing to do is to keeping in touch with our websites be updated what touring dates are open and to contact us if one of the tours is a good time for you. If you are interested in a particular date that is outside of our touring calendar, please email us specifics on what kind of an event you are planning. Anything outside of California would require finances for airfare.

What states/countries do you normally play?
Anywhere feasible. We are based in southern, CA, and commonly do west coast tours. We also do national tours when the time is right for us. If you have booking contacts and see a possibility in setting up international touring, don’t hesitate to contact.
