    "My Afton is simply awesome working with an artist like myself. I love the fact that I can make my ticket sales accessible online and through thermal tickets. I love afton shows as an independent artist. I get to introduce myself to a different audience all across the United States. I've performed with aftonshows in DC, New York and Atlanta. Can't wait to get to Miami. -S.Chess".

    "Here is the honest truth, as that is all I am capable of providing. Afton provides booking agent services but they do not physically have staff members at their shows. They do not promote the show for you, so you cannot depend on them to do so. They use locals who are guided to play certain roles on the ground. The Orpheum, Tampa Bay is where we performed last night and it was a great show because we made it great. Organization must come from your end and do not depend much on anyone else for your stage show settings. Evan(Sound) and Dave(event manager) were extremely helpful. The virtual aspect of Afton is of great value for upcoming artists but if you are a seasoned vet, the system may not benefit you as much as working with your own team would. Be careful when the event is stated to be for all ages as some of the younger artists do not care about lyrical content and language, your little one's will be subject to language they may have never heard before and anger they have never seen. I did advise Afton to upgrade their vetting process of who they are booking and to be a bit more personal with their artists because respect of our innocent children should always be out above money. Somethings cannot be undone once they have been done, heard and seen. All in all, if you are an upcoming artist and you need to gain some experience, then Afton is great for you, if you are in the game for a longer time, pay attention to the details and make sure you hold a level of honor to your craft. The aim of the game is mastery of the art, not to make money. Money comes when you do what you love, it cannot be forced but the people but love it as well. I have 20+ years internationally in the music industry and these are my words of experience speaking. Afton is a good starting place for aspiring artists. Don't expect any money if you do not believe in yourself or your art, belief of self and confidence is key. Bless'ed love #LionofJudahTruth #NobodyBiggerThanJaH Music.OfficialLionofJudaH.com".

    "My Afton has surpassed my expectations. This is the first official company that I have worked with to help me book paid shows. Their user interface was pretty simple to use and I was able to book a show after I agreed to the e contract. I sold 20+ tickets and was assigned a show time. I didn't perform at the exact time more so because the fans where a bit late and so was the DJ. The Afton onsite manager was there before everyone and was ready to put me on stage at the assigned time. Once everything kicked off, the show was a huge success! My fans showed up and I also met new fans and got to network with the other artist. I will definitely be working with my Afton in the future. Everything felt professional and the email communications help clarify any confusion that I had and after the show I was emailed about payment without having to ask about it. Best Regards, Greshmon ".
