J Todd Music Agency -

Welcome to the J Todd Music Agency Web site. 

Established in 2005 our clients include weddings, high schools, colleges, night clubs, country clubs, fairs, festivals and company events. We represent Bands in every style of music and price range to fit your budget. We use professional contracts for every engagement and carry a two million dollar liability insurance policy. Just let us know what type of Band or DJ you are looking for and what your budget or price range is that you would like to stay within. We will present the best talent available for the best price on your date. I have seen every  band I represent many times. I am not a band leader and I am 100% objective. Don't take the risk of hiring a band directly sight unseen. Use the "contact us" form and we will respond to you the same business day.


"Jeff Todd (J Todd Music Agency) has consistently represented/referred some of the best musical talent in the Kansas City area to our events over the last 5 years.  He has been professional, courteous and patient in all of our discussions and negotiations. The artists he represents have always been professional, reliable, flexible, talented and a delight to work with! We would highly recommend the agency to both musicians and buyers/producers alike.
H.A. "Andy" Green. Director of Productions. Downtown Bentonville, Inc.

I’ve worked with Jeff Todd over the last several years on a number of different projects and it is ALWAYS a great experience.  He is consistently going the extra mile to find exactly what I’m looking for and he’s always willing to provide multiple options.  Additionally, he continues to give me that same dedicated service no matter what the budget is and no matter how difficult I’m being – no job is too small or unimportant!  But oddly enough, what keeps me coming back is his personal business style, because even on the rare occasion that he hasn’t had exactly what I was looking for, he is gracious and understanding, he leaves me with ideas for next time, and he is always rooting for my success. Thanks for all your hard work over the years Jeff, and thanks in advance for many more. You rock! Audrey Sisco. Marketing Assistant. Zona Rosa Town Center

"I have worked with Jeff  Todd for 4 years on a summer concert series we set up in St Joseph , Mo. While economics unrelated to the concert series have forced us to cancel the series this year Jeff has always done a great job for us. He is passionate about music and seeks out/promotes the best local talent best suited to the venue with great results. He attends each event handling all aspects of the evening from pre-concert set up and testing to paying the performers. If there is an equipment problem he has taken care of it. Prior to Jeff we had another local entity handling the series with results nowhere near as successful and trouble-free as with J. Todd Music. I am happy to recommend Jeff if your operation has needs for musical entertainment from a concerned/involved professional." Chris McIntyre, CPM RPA. Executive Vice President. Merrill Companies, LLC

" Jeff is a consummate professional. Always accommodating and able to match us up with the perfect band. Been using Jeff for over 4 years now and have never been disappointed." Patrick F. McAtarian. Andax Industries LLC

Jeff Todd provides a valuable service in Kansas City. When you are coordinating an event that includes entertainment, the last thing you need to worry about is a band not showing up. Jeff represents a wide variety of quality talent. You will get great communication and follow up to make sure you are getting what you need, when you need it, and within your budget.  Dan Bingaman. Holy Smokes Blues & BBQ Festival.

"I've recently had the pleasure of working with the J Todd Music Agency to secure the services of The Grand Marquis as part of our 2012 "Music in the Park" Concert Series. Jeff was very easy to work with, and he went above and beyond what was expected. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a quality, cost-effective artist or DJ for their next event." Matthew Hoisington - Events & Media Director City of Parsons, Kansas.
