I am not only a videographer, I am also a musician. My band plays regularly and its always difficult to find the right gig. That is where GigSalad comes in. While at SXSW, I got to talk with Steve Tetrault about GigSalad and how it works for not only a perfomer, but also people looking for those performers.
GigSalad is not just for bands. Magicians, Clowns, Face painting and even motivational speakers are on this service. As an artist you can sign up and get listed for free. For an additional fee, an artist can get access to add media, links, banners and a better visibility when being searched for.
If you are an event looking for performers, simply browse through the listings. Choose who you want a quote from and work with them on the event. When all said and done, rate the artist right from the page.
For more information, check out the website at GigSalad.com. Look for me there, too!
