What people have said about The Band Leader software...

"... (The Band Leader) is a feature rich program that's designed
to handle a musician's business
... (The Point of Sale Service module) is incredibly simple and ingenious at the same time.
Every performing songwriter should have this in his or her arsenal of gig tools."
Performing Songwriter magazine
March/April 2004
"It's hard to think of something this software won't do." Dave Jackson's Musician's Cooler
"I was shocked with the level of customer support and the finished product is,
hands down, the greatest tool that my company has.
One of my favorite features is the new Venue Radius Report.
Let's say you book a gig singing in Nashville, Zip Code 37219, for Sunday morning.
Now you need a Sunday Night within a 70 mile radius. No reason to look through all
your contacts, simply click a button and all your contacts within 70 miles appear.
Scott Lucas
Catacomb Music, Inc. Nashville, TN
