of my history in the music business includes being a booking agent
for seven years, so I have an idea of what it takes to be a good
agent. You need not only to be a good salesperson, but be a good
debt collector, extremely organized, love music and musicians, have
plenty of patience, be honest, be able to catch phone calls in the
middle of the night, be capable of standing up to the tough guys,
know how to spot the cons, and be a good babysitter and nurse maid.
Most agents are men. I tried
training and teaching several women as agents and failed. Most could
not handle the pressure or fell in love or heat with the musicians.
Terry Reeves is an exception to the rule. She is such a great agent
that I tried to convince her to go national with her company. She
was smart and kept her stable to a small number of bands and artists
in order to do the job thoroughly rather than signing as many as
she could and do a so so job. She has a great personality and is
a sincere friend to those who are fair with her.
In the past I recommended
her to dozens of new bands and will continue to do so for as long
as she is in the music business in whatever capacity she decides
to undertake. She is definitely a Friend of mine.

"Like most companies, here at Hittin’ the Note
we guard our trademarks zealously. However, when our friend Terry
Reeves told us she was thinking of starting a company called Music
Matters Entertainment, we knew her taste in music would never
tarnish our slogan or make us regret the association. Terry works
with a diverse roster of rising musicians in the Southeast, and
we’re proud to carry a full line of MME artists at Hittin’ the
Note! ... At MME, their motto is, 'It’s all about the musicians
and the music,' and it shows!"

Having worked with Terry
Reeves and the staff at Music Matters Entertainment for several
years, I can say they have always exceeded our expectations when
choosing someone from their talented artist roster. All firms should
be this easy to work with.

It is always a pleasure working

fashion! Her word means everything to me and I admire her passion
that the music actually does matter the most.
I love love love her!
