Most Recent Innovation/News Item: As a nation wide online marketplace, GigSalad has learned to evolve with our users as the internet develops more complex capabilities. We continuously research, test, and adjust our efforts while maintaining our focus on the customer experience. GigSalad has been listed in many articles not only related to the music biz, but many other places related to event planning.

Looking to Gain as a Member: As a member, we would like to network, increase GigSalad awareness, view trends in the music business and gain new business partnerships.

Decision to Join Music Biz: GigSalad markets to performers as well as event planners. You cannot have one without the other. In 2016, 31% of the bookings on GigSalad were music related. Joining is a great opportunity to grow all music categories that GigSalad offers. Hopefully, all musicians are also event planners and will utilize the site as well.
