What Is Band Insurance?

Band insurance is liability insurance coverage designed to protect your band from the costs associated with claims. Claims can arise from your performance or operations during an event. For example, if a patron injures themselves by tripping over your equipment or you damage a venue, band event insurance could help cover the costs of these claims. These claims can get costly real fast and the last thing you want to worry about is paying defense costs because someone got hurt while you’re performing. 

Band liability insurance provides coverage for your general and public liability needs.

Why Should You Carry Band Insurance?

When you’re an entertainer you understand the need for props, good lighting, and a rested voice. These things can bring your booked gig together perfectly. Protect your performances with band insurance and gain peace of mind as you rock out and put on a great show. 

In addition, band insurance can provide a few perks for your band. 

  • Having liability insurance pegs you as a serious professional.
  • Clients or venue owners may require you to show proof of insurance before hiring you.
  • Liability insurance gives you a layer of defense against claims such as bodily injury or property damage.
  • Club or venue owners may require you to add them as an additional insured.
  • Claims against you can be financially crippling. With band insurance, you can enjoy financial peace of mind as you perform.
