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.

About That Pandora/Ticketfly Deal…

Written by David Baird, Gigmor CEO/Founder

The whole industry is talking about it. It’s a “game changer,” everyone is saying. It’s the biggest news story of the week and it’s great news for Gigmor.

Why? Because it validates what Gigmor has been asserting since Day 1: with recorded music revenues declining and live revenues growing exponentially, other music companies (think Spotify, Apple Music) will make moves into the live music space that was once the sole domain of Live Nation and AEG Live.

To give you a better idea, more than half (53%) of recorded music sales were generated from physical product in 2014. In the first half of 2015, vinyl sales alone generated more revenue than all of the free streaming services combined, including YouTube, which is arguably the largest music distribution platform on the planet.

Pandora’s acquisition of TicketFly is brilliant because TicketFly has been focusing on the market that, for everyone else (i.e. Live Nation and AEG Live), doesn’t make much economic sense: the small and mid-size venues. Clubs, bars, small theaters, etc.

So how does this tie into Gigmor? Simple. The music industry – every single facet – is a fragile ecosystem that relies upon a continuous supply of bands forming, musicians and songwriters creating and recording music and, most importantly, performing live. Talent is the lifeblood of the industry. Earning money by playing live is how musicians and bands keep the music ecosystem fresh, healthy and thriving. And according to a recent study by Vevo, Millennials don’t see music as a “desire;” it’s a “need.” Especially the shared experience of a live performance. Live music is a $30B business and it’s growing by 15% a year. It’s not the same old business any more.

Gigmor’s mission is to bring music booking into the 21st century by creating a live music marketplace. Today Gigmor announced an innovative partnership with Music Box San Diego, Southern California’s hottest new venue. This is the first step and it’s an important one. Because today’s Pandora announcement signaled what will become the music industry’s greatest land grab: live music.

Like TicketFly, Gigmor is strategically positioned to be the leader and we’re playing for keeps. For more info, check out Gigmor’s Equity Crowdfunding Campaign.
