When we got engaged, we started getting confused by all the choices for bands. We called Rollin, and he listened to our preferences, discussed our budget, and sent us three good options to review. We booked the 901 Heavy Hitters at his suggestion, and they were AWESOME! He made us feel comfortable during the whole process, and so many guests told me it was the best band they'd ever seen at a wedding. Thank you -- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
I used Riggs Entertainment to book two great bands, the Beale Street Flippers, and several other performers for a company event. Since I had never hired entertainment before, I was nervous, but Rollin put me totally at ease immediately. He listened to my concerns and my goals for the event, and he suggested entertainers I would have never considered. It was the best event my company has ever done, and Riggs Entertainment played a huge part in that. Highly recommended!
What to Expect
When you contact us, the first thing that will happen is: We'll just listen.
We won't try to sell you something. We won't push you to a particular band. We'll just listen to what you want.
We might ask you a few questions, but mostly we'll want to hear your thoughts, what your musical tastes are, what your goals for the event are, what your budget range is, etc.
After that, we'll try to provide several options from which you can choose -- always with good quality promotional materials so you can make an informed choice.
Usually, we handle all paperwork, and you'll pay us a deposit to secure the booking (we charge a 10% booking service fee). You'll pay the balance to the artist at the event.
In addition to finding you great entertainment at a great price, our aim is to minimize the stress involved in hiring live entertainment. We've literally done this thousands of times, and we know the good guys in the entertainment business -- and the ones who need a little "attitude adjustment." ;)
Not only can we recommend great entertainment for your event, we can also save you time, money, and a big headache.
Rollin Riggs, owner of Riggs Entertainment LLC, started working in the Memphis entertainment industry in 1996, when he began managing the renowned party band The Bouffants. With the success of that band, Riggs created another popular band (The Venus Mission) and began managing such noted acts as The Dempseys, Ms. Ruby Wilson, and the Beale Street Flippers.
From 2004-17, he built the region's largest entertainment company, providing dozens of prominent clients (FedEx, Memphis Grizzlies, Horseshoe Casino, etc.) and thousands of individuals with bands and entertainment services.
After selling his ownership stake in 2017, he consulted for a major tourist attraction and took a step back to reassess the region's entertainment landscape.
In 2019, he launched Riggs Entertainment LLC, focusing on the region's authentic, original artists and a few high-quality party bands. He is also consulting and assisting festivals, venues, and others who need production and programming expertise.
