Benji Bruce is a full time Corporate Entertainer for companies like RE/MAX, HILTON, Intel, Charles Schwab, ASAE, and more. In his innovative restaurant book, Benji teaches you his techniques in marketing, performing, negotiating fees, booking gigs, and so much more. Best of all, this information is not "dated material" or "re-hashed" theories that have been printed time after time. Be warned, this is not a book on restaurant magic; but a book on business.

This book goes into detail about how to become a full-time restaurant performer.
