Looking for a band, performer, speaker or service for your next event? GigSalad provides nearly 60,000 performers and service providers from 584 categories including musical acts, speakers and other event-related services for hire. This booking marketplace is available across the U.S. and Canada.

GigSalad eliminates the tedious process of searching for bands, speakers or musicians on individual company websites. It centralizes all of the talent in your area to one site and reduces the time planners spend on organizing this faction of events.

The idea was formed in 2007 when co-founds Mark Steiner and Steve Tetrault started a simple online directory for planners to find the perfect entertainment for their events. The idea grew into GigSalad and the company now has offices in Wilmington, NC and Springfield, MO.

The process for booking talent through GigSalad is simple and can be done on your own terms. The process can be broken down into three steps.

1. Submit free quote requests to as many performers as you’d like. The vendors will then contact the planners with a price quote and to work out the details.

2. Book online by entering payment for an easy, iron-clad contract.

3. Enjoy the event!

When browsing through performers and services, planners are able to view photos, watch videos and check out reviews. Note: GigSalad does not perform background checks so, planners, do your homework!
