GetSetGig, a marketplace to hire talented live performing artists, launched their new Intellectual property called “GetSetGig Step” on World Music Day. GetSetGig step is a 12 week on field crash course program on “How to be a performer”. GetSetGig has designed modules for a batch of selected musicians which will be imparted into them through gigs. These aspiring singers/musicians will be given opportunities to perform live in front of people and will be given critical feedbacks on which these artists would eventually improve. “We wanted to launch our new programme, GetSetGig step, for musicians who want to jumpstart their career. We thought what better occasion than world music day?” said Sahaj Nalgirkar, founder of GetSetGig. By the end of 12 week, that is after around 20-25 gigs, the artists would get to learn and experience the various aspects of live performance. GetSetGig will take them through various modules like basic mannerism on stage, interacting with audience, how to handle a mistake made on stage and so on. By taking the musicians/singers through this, they aim to create a reliable batch of quality performers
GetSetGig is sharing this knowledge for no cost. The founders of GetSetGig are artists themselves and they feel that it’s their obligation to develop this industry. “We want to see a time when our clients would not be able to reject any options provided by us because they are all awesome” said Aditya Hanchinal, co-founder of GetSetGig. The company wants to bring a small change which will go ahead and impact the whole live industry.
The form to apply for GetSetGig Step is online. Once the artist fills the form, the artist management team will have an audition/interaction with the artist to choose 5-6 artists in a batch. Interested artists can log on to www.getsetgig.com/step and apply for GetSetGig step. “We always want to make things easy and accessible for artists. We believe that artists are the ones who change the world. It may be a painter, singer, dancer or designer. And that is why we want to give them all they need so they can focus on changing the way world thinks.” said Sahaj when asked what motivated him to start GetSetGig step.
The launch of “GetSetGig Step” was followed by a live jamming session on behalf of world music day. Music knows no language, a saying that is quite a bit famous worldwide, but the guys at GetSetGig proved it today. They called 5 upcoming and talented musicians and singers to do a jam session in the central atrium of Phoenix Paragon Plaza. These 5 musicians had never seen each other before, it was here today they interacted with each other for the very first time. They were all from different background, skills, talent and interests. But when they started jamming together, it all came out as one, hence proving that music is not bound by anything. A beautiful jam sessions with a huge audience was followed by a small interaction of the founder with the artists. “It’s beautiful to know how an art creates a bond between people” added Sahaj. G
