In that case something professional yet not stupid-sounding. These people are trusting you with their careers.
Which was the point we were both trying to make methinks. No worries

That's the one Jordie, tell them that. Then every pisshead, junkie, model wannabe and bozo that come your way will have you to blame because their career didn't take off.
But on a serious note, what type of promotions are we talking here. A gig down the town hall, having a network of music pub managers who you can move your clients aournd in, a battle of the bands at Carling academy? A pile of people that will give out flyers for pubs and clubs?
Who is your market and what is your angle?
Why would I choose you above someone else (forgetting about the name thing).
Once you have a developed brief as to who you are then serious talk about how you present yourself to all of you contacts because more plausible. If you start with a name then you have to fit yourself around that.
It's a live promotions company. I'm planning to organise and market gigs around Cardiff for local bands and DJs. Headlining with bands that have established fan bases of course but also supporting them with lesser known talent. And as for being responsible for their careers, that's a management job not a promotions one. If they get the gigs, they get paid, the only one making a loss in any case will be me. Why choose me? What have you got to lose? Oh and believe me, I've got venues lined up and some interested bands, just sorting out the smaller details at this time.
