Spotlight: The Green View from Austin, TX

In the next few weeks, we will be highlighting multiple growing Gigmor Bands by introducing them to our users alongside showcasing some of their best work. Our first Spotlight piece is on The Green View.


The Green View is an Americana rock band that was formed in 2002 in the town of, yup you guessed it, Greenview, Illinois. For the past couple years they have been based in Austin where they frequent the popular dive bar Hole in the Wall as well as playing shows all across the Lone Star state. The Green View loves to write and loves to play their originals during their performances.


My favorite track is “I Want My Baby Back.” No this isn’t a Chili’s jingle but I promise you’ll like it just as much. A couple other standout tracks include “Monster,” “Rock It,” and “In Need of an Exit.”


In 2013, the band actually filmed a cameo for the feature film “High on the Hog” which is directed by esteemed writer and director Joe Esteves. The film is still in post-production but we can’t wait to see what The Green View has in store for us in their on-screen debut.

Gigmor’s Favorite Videos of the Month

One of our favorite things about Gigmor is that it gives fans a digestible visual aesthetic that lets anyone see the complete layout of all their favorite Gigmor artist’s work. This means users can access music (obviously), level of expertise, show dates, who their fans are, and much much more all from their artist profile. We want our users to have one complete visualization for each of the artist’s profiles.

One trend we have noticed recently is bands and artists uploading their live acts and music videos to their profiles. Let’s peep at a few of the best videos on Gigmor as of today, keep uploading people and maybe you’ll be featured next time. These videos stood out not just because we liked the tune, but because of the energy and passion the artists show in that performance. Make sure to shoot these artists a follow after watching their vids! Hope you enjoy.

Gigmor’s Crowdfunding Campaign

Four years ago I had a dream: to build technology that would help musicians find compatible players in their area. As any artist will tell you: the right musical connections can change your life!

Since then I’m proud to say we’ve achieved significant traction and national recognition as a musicians’ network and matching service. Now we’re building a best-of-breed booking marketplace that will streamline the process of hiring live talent.

Starting Gigmor combined my two greatest passions (apart from my family): technology and music. I couldn’t have imagined the journey ahead. High highs, low lows.

We’ve had some great victories: winning a Silicon Beach startup pitch competition, awesome coverage in the LA Times, Forbes and Billboard, achieving over $566K in share reservations in our crowdfunding campaign, gaining the trust of 50K musicians and a thousand industry pros on a bootstrapped budget.

Today the dream is becoming a reality. But we’re still in the first inning. There’s so much more to do! To make that dream happen, we need you. We need your investment now to build a live music marketplace that will attract talent and industry players around the world!

Help us make a dent in the universe! Visit our StartEngine crowdfunding campaign.
