Hear It Local Announces GetBooked App

TMCnet Contributor
 
According to reports, Hear It Local recently launched a new Facebook (News - Alert) application offering the first Direct to Fan booking platform for Independent Music. With GetBooked, fans can hire the musicians they 'like' on Facebook for house concerts and private events. This is another one-of-its-kind app from Hear it Local, a company that helps fans find, fund and book local musicians for their house concerts and parties, and also connect industry professionals with musicians for their venues and events.
The app works as a direct-to-Fan booking platform for independent musicians. The platform allows musicians to keep their fans informed about their events and availability. Moreover, they can also take care of the bookings and the payments via the app, allowing them to save on the marketing costs.  
'The Direct to Fan business model has already made it possible for musicians to cut out the middle man and reach their fans directly to market their band, sell their music and merchandise, and even fund their next project. But until now, touring and live shows have been left out of the Direct to Fan evolution,' said Matt Lombardi, CEO of Hear It Local. 'GetBooked allows Independent Musicians to leverage their Facebook page to get house concert bookings directly from their fans, which means that fans get a unique live music experience they'll remember and bands get a more sustainable source of income.'

'House concerts are an amazing way to personally connect with our fans but there's never been an easy way to book, manage, and promote them,' Guitarist Chris Yetter of Orange (News - Alert) Avenue says. 'With GetBooked, all of the work is done for us and the payment is handled before we even show up for the gig. We can't wait to use it to perform in front of more fans than ever before!'
