How to Find Musicians for Events

Want to find musical entertainers for your event but don’t know where to start?

Although personal references and your venue may have some suggestions, one way to locate musicians is through the website Gigmor.

What is Gigmor?

Gigmor is a live music marketplace that connects artists with each other and also provides a platform for individuals and businesses to post upcoming gigs.

How does it work?

Whether you’re looking for a singer or a band, you can post a gig including details about the type of music you’re looking for and your payment terms (Note: the platform does not yet have a payment system in place but has plans for it).

Band Profile on Gigmor

Of the 50,000 performers registered on the site, you can search by proximity to your location, musical genre, instruments played, and artist type (band, musician, DJ, etc.). Within each performer’s profile, musicians can create a bio, define their performance experience, skill level, and include samples of their music. If they’ve booked gigs through Gigmor, you can check out client’s reviews of past performances.

How much does it cost?

According to David Baird, founder and CEO of Gigmor, it is a freemium model.

“Using the site to post a profile or ‘seeking’ ads to find musicians to jam with and form bands—that’s all free. But for the paid gigs portion, there’ll be a 30-day free beta and then, after that, two premium levels—for musicians—starting at a very affordable price point of $10 a month or, if you book more than a certain number of gigs a month through us, and are a working professional, it goes up to $20 a month.”

For event planners, venues and other talent seekers, the Gigmor platform allows you to search for talent and contact them directly; you can also post gigs on the website for performers to find (all for free).

If you’re planning a fun corporate get together, a social occasion, or a wedding and want some live entertainment, try Gigmor to find local talent.
