At Gigger, we want to make booking a gig as easy as ordering an Uber. We believe that making the entire process easier and more effective for bands, promoters, and venues will ultimately lead to more gigs, more punters, and a healthier music industry.

For Bands: Imagine an online band manager who gets you gigs and organises your band.

For Promoters: Need to find a new band to finish off that gig you've been putting together? Just search through every available band in your city. Or every available band in another city, if you're booking a tour! You can even search through venues, reading tech specs, venue capacity, and other crucial information.

For Venues: Everything that promoters can do, plus being able to receive and manage gig proposals.

For Everyone: A streamlined gig booking process that makes everything super easy! Every offer, proposal, or event has its own conversation, where everyone can chat in real time - effectively a singular record of every important decision relating to a gig, way better than searching multiple email threads and text messages. 

Why Are We Doing This?
To put it simply, we love live music.
We want more. We want more upcoming artists to have the opportunity to play more.

Through Gigger and our community, we want to make sure people keep getting to experience great gigs,  that bands have the opportunity to play local shows and develop their craft.

Why Patreon?
We're a startup trying to build the greatest platform for musicians, ever. We believe that the core features of our site should be free - booking gigs is fundamental to live music, and bands shouldn't have to pay for the opportunity to play.

Instead of raising investment, we're asking you to help us build the platform the way we think it should be built; by musicians for musicians. You'll get insider details as we develop the platform and often we'll be looking for feedback! That means you get to shape the future of a platform that will shape the future of live music. Awesome.

But we're not just going to build a platform, we're going to build a community of motivated performers, promoters, and managers who want to see fundamental change in the music industry. This means everything from local industry events to online webinars with industry experts.

Why not Kickstarter?
Platforms like Kickstarter are great for companies bringing a prototype to mass production, where every pledge is essentially a pre-order. Building a web/iOS/Android app is different. It's a continuous process, we don't ship a finished version - it's never finished! Instead we continuously improve the website based on user feedback. That's one reason why it makes more sense to build an ongoing community than a list of pre-orders aka pledgers.

The other is cashflow - a service based startup like Gigger doesn't have capital expenses, we have operational expenses. Instead of paying $750,000 for a run of 300,000 Thingos, we need to pay server fees, developers, etc. The more developers and designers we can hire, the faster we can add your features to Gigger.

The Future
We want to build a lot more than just a booking system. We simply believe that it's the best place to start. By bringing together multiple services, specifically tailored for live music, we can create a platform whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Exactly what all those services are depends on you, and your involvement in our community. Our hunch is that it will involve innovative analytics, whole new marketing systems to bring punters to gigs, finance tools to make live music more financially manageable, and more.

Let's build a great future for live music.

Goals
$0 of $955 per month
Breaking even on expenses such as servers, GitHub, Mailchimp/Mandrill, and more means that we can continue developing Gigger without worrying about our runway (the length of time until the cash runs out) or raising extra investment.  It won't help feed our founders, but it will mean they don't have to go hungry to buy more time.
