“After being in the business as long as we have, you value a great agency when you find one.  And THIS is a great agency!  Without question, they are the hardest working and most dedicated company we’ve ever worked with.  They care about their roster, and they care about the buyer.  This all helps to create a wonderful working environment for everyone!  It is also the reason The Music Works has been the leading entertainment agency serving a vast cliental for decades!  Quite simply, they are the best at what they do.” - Sell Out Stereo

“I’m pleased to say I’ve worked with Gregg Schmitt and The Music Works for nearly two decades. Booking agents often get a bad rap. Not in Gregg’s case. He’s built his reputation through hard work and perseverance. I’m convinced, there’s no agent in the twin cities who works harder, for his bands.” -Jonas Mayer/Jonah & The Whales

“The Music Works has been with us from the start.  Gregg and his staff do an excellent job keeping our calendar full of shows and ensuring we are a perfect fit for the client/buyer.  They understand the goals we are trying to achieve and where we want to be.  Working with The Music Works as a partner has allowed us to perform for many types of crowds and events and we could not be more excited about what the future holds.” -Six To Midnight

“I have played in Music Works exclusive bands for over 2 decades.  For the past several years I have run my own band with all bookings handled by the Music Works.  I have always found working with the Music Works’ personnel to be at the highest level of professionalism.  All communications have been respectful, honest, and straight to the point.  I have benefited greatly and truly enjoy working with the Music Works.”  -Carl Werner /Under The Covers

“You know Gregg, whenever I work with you everything is done right-you are the best out there and have been for many, many years. I just wish you would book more of my calendar!” Sherwin Linton 2014

“The City of Oakdale has been contracting with The Music Works for the last 5 years to help assist us in finding the right bands for our Summer Concert Series. From my experience The Music Works has been nothing but helpful and informative when it comes to asking questions about bands, pricing, and contracts. The management always will recommend a band, give you samples of their music, direct you to their website, and in my 5 years dealing with Gregg Schmitt and The Music Works, I have yet to be let down!” – Mike Anderson, Recreation Coordinator, City of Oakdale



I have worked with The Music Works as my exclusive agency for many years. I have found them to be prompt, courteous and professional, and they really know what works best in my venue. I would highly recommend this agency to any venue that prefers to deal with just one company.

I book various corporate clients including the Minnesota Twins and Canterbury Park Racetrack. Often I have specific “types” of bands needed for the public promotions they create. I can always trust a candid and professional band suggestion from Gregg and The Music Works’ office. The bands are always spot on with their professional attitude , equipment and delivery.
Thank you for operating a high quality band agency to serve our needs.

“When I called Dave, the band that I had been counting on had just canceled due to some big change-ups in their band.  This was maybe 2 weeks before our event!  Dave was able to fill the date.  Not only that, they did it for a reasonable price, showed up early, and put on one of the best performances I have ever heard a cover band do.  They are outstanding musicians, for sure, but they’ve really got the vocals covered too.  It was an awesome time and we will definitely be inviting these guys back!

Gregg Schmitt of The Music Works is the only agent I deal with that when he tells me what a band is it is exactly what shows up on stage. I trust him.
