Who We Are.


We're a community of artists and admirers driven by a passion to enhance the way people access live entertainment.

We believe that people deserve an easier, more direct way to book artists, as they're constantly looking for new opportunities.

We work to foster a more genuine connection between creative people and those who hire them.

We love to hear how you think we can improve. We yearn for constructive criticism (really, we do).

Beliefs.

Our mission is to make art and live entertainment more accessible for everyone.

Simply put, we want more people to see more artists in more places.

We started Gigzolo with the dream of creating a global marketplace that gives anyone the power to find and hire creative people, anywhere in the world.

  • More Artists + More Places = More People Listening

    Why restrict your creativity to traditional venues when all kinds of people and places are looking to pay artists just like you? In fact, why restrict your art at all?

    We know that entertainment is not limited to formal art galleries and fancy music venues, so a booking marketplace should be welcoming to non-traditional venues, too. Play a private event, a corporate retreat, or a warehouse party. More venues means more potential fans and, ultimately, more revenue for our artists.

  • Give value to get value.

    What if you never had to "pay to play"? Instead of asking artists to pay us upfront for booking opportunities, we offer access to our platform free of charge so connections with potential clients can develop more organically.

    We only get paid when you're getting tangible value: our premium subscription offers you behind-the-scenes analytics (like how to better market your art, how to adjust your prices, and how to plan tours based on your fanbase, etc), and otherwise we only take a (small) percentage when you get paid for your gig. No milking you for your existing fanbase before we let you list yourself, no monthly subscription fees to join the community, no hidden costs. Ever.

  • Accessibility breeds artistic diversity.

    Back in the day, artists had to follow a certain path in order to be successful, and this required a certain kind of conformity. Today, you don’t need anyone’s permission to be noticed and build a fanbase; there is infinite space for originality.

    But how do people who might want to hire you find you in all the noise? Gigzolo is a space for adventurous consumers to make meaningful connections with artists who like to color outside the lines. Our custom search quickly matches you with consumers whose style and occasion match your preferences. Artistic diversity is blossoming, and the creative marketplace needs to keep pace.

  • Everyone means everyone.

    There is no artist too bizarre, no event too random. Our job is to connect all people who want to hire artists -- including non-profits, event planners, and small businesses — to incredible talent who can bring a taste of the creative world to their communities.

    We reward artists by raising the profile of those who actively give back to their communities, whether they donate a music performance to a nursing home, give free lessons at a local school or contribute in other ways. We know that art can foster stronger, more innovative communities, and we’ll do whatever we can to help. Know someone who’s interested in having an artist help out? Let us know!

  • More Artists + More Places = More People Listening

    Art has become accessible in our homes because of the Internet, but you can't download a performance for your friend's birthday party. We want to bring live art into the community.

    We know that entertainment is not limited to formal art galleries and fancy music venues, so a booking marketplace should be welcoming to non-traditional venues, too. Have a band play at your next private event, a corporate retreat, or a warehouse party. Talk to someone about painting a mural at your restaurant. Go crazy.

  • Give value to get value.

    There's no reason you should pay upfront to list your event or find artists; there are artists everywhere! But instead of wading through individual websites trying to find someone bookable, we've created a simple marketplace where no one is "paying to play." This means we curate the site to show you the best artists, not those with huge marketing budgets.

    Nate spent the last several years chained to a computer at a large investment bank. Now that his eyes have re-adjusted to daylight, he spends his time working on Gigzolo’s operations, sales, and marketing. He’s also one heck of a janitor.

    He’s been singing since age 8, when he and a few friends formed a boy band during recess. He’s not very good, but works to help better artists get opportunities to do what they love— full time. He’s obsessed with the State of Texas, male patterned baldness, and tacos of any kind.

    Henry is really good at talking to computers. Having started out as a software engineer, he has a wealth of experience developing innovative technical solutions for creatives. Now he spends his time working on Gigzolo's strategy, development, and creative design. He's also the one who restarts the wireless router when it's acting up. He's good at that.

    Henry has worked with some of the biggest labels in the music industry (even though he can hardly carry a tune) and he has a huge heart for our social mission. On the weekends, you can find him on the local mountain biking trails or convincing Nate to sleep instead of work.
