Why Marsh Entertainment?


The specialist entertainment industry team at Marsh have in excess of 60+ years’ experience working with the music and broader entertainment industry. The team is led by a musician, Simon Calabrese, that has been in the music industry for over 20 years. Simon has personally developed the products specifically for the industry, ensuring that they meet the needs of musicians, promoters and all other people working within the broader entertainment industry. Each member of the team don’t just understand insurance, they explicitly understand the risks associated with the industry and will talk your language. This means that you receive the right advice without the hassle. Just as importantly, as brokers (not insurers) they are your advocate in the time of a claim, ensuring that claims are paid fairly and swiftly.

Marsh Entertainment are the only specialist brokers to have launched Gig Cover. Gig Cover allows you to purchase public liability as a performer or band/group for the period that you want to, as opposed to being locked in for 12 months. Cover starts as low as $20 for individuals. This is a real game changer for the industry.
