Music at house parties and office events usually fails to live up to expectations. Sketchy DJs and co-worker karaoke usually doesn’t inspire glass raising and head bobbing. But what if you could book legitimate artists for your private show — at an affordable price? You probably would, right?
That’s the premise behind Gigit, a weeks-old Santa Monica, Calif.-based startup bridging the gap between musicians and fans. Music lovers get to book up-and-coming artists. Performers get to play in an intimate setting and expand their audience. Prices are good enough for both to be happy. Plus Gigit has some legitimate talent, including rap legends and Grammy winners Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
