randy and i decided we wanted two 'performers' for our wedding: a guitarist to welcome guests, perform at the ceremony, and during cocktail hour..
and then a DJ to spin during dinner and the reception.
randy has a friend who is a DJ and has graciously agreed to work at our wedding, but we don't have any guitarist friends, so i consulted google.
somehow i happened upon this website called gig masters. it's actually a really cool thing - it's a website where you can hire performers of all different sorts - bands, acoustic singers, DJ's, balloon twisters, belly dancers..
you set up your event and give some basic details, and then you can select artists to get quotes from. most of them responded fairly quickly, in my experience, but it's cool because it puts everybody side by side and you can accept or deny people's offers. each artist's profile lists details about them like their musical influences, and they can even post videos or tracks of samples of their work. there are standard reviews of each performer, but you can also see the events they have booked in the past and future through gig masters.. so if they don't have any jobs coming up in the next few months, you know they probably suck..
if you're looking for any performers for your wedding and haven't had luck with referrals, i highly suggest checking our gig masters!
