www.gigsalad.com… Their web site says… “Over 80,000 bands, entertainers and event services for hire”. I did not count. They also say they are “the largest and most diverse marketplace for entertainment and event services”. I do not know if that is true, not that it matters. It’s a cool resource and they have some very impressive testimonials to back it up.
Think of it as a specialized search engine targeting the kind of stuff meeting planners need. First type in the type of service you are looking for (team builders, party bands, face painters, comedians, whatever (and I mean whatever), and then you type in your location. Somehow electrons, bits, bytes, zeros, ones… they do their thing… and voila… recommendations appear. I have no idea how that works and despite what you say, you don’t really know either.
For those who are organizing events—anything from a small weekend gathering to a grand gala—you get connected with your local talented performers and vendors. And then you can connect with and book through their system.
At least check it out. You will like it (and they seem nice).
