An app for intimate gigs allowing musicians to set in their own living room
With Gigmouse, an artiste can host their own gig, and not worry about how to connect with the audience
If you are one of those who wants to watch a gig, but not brave a crowd, then we are going to share a secret with you. Gigmouse, a ticketing platform, co-founded by Raghav Kumar and Roshan Kumar, is here to arrange intimate gigs that musicians can set in their own living room, bookstore or any other space. The idea is to make concerts and gigs cosy, and bring the audience closer to the artiste. "We wanted to make a ticketing platform that enables musicians to set up their own show. This will help them economically and make 'making art' more affordable," says Raghav.
The interesting part is that the app also benefits other small-scale businesses, as it helps people sublet their spaces, and hence, earn their share fairly. "Once you have the app, it helps you connect with venue owners and audience members. The audience can directly book tickets through the app and find out about gigs happening in their cities, and they can even become hosts themselves. Gigmouse is sort of creating this community of musicians, hosts and audiences and they do a lot of promotional work for you," says singer Nisa Schette, who has been arranging her gigs through Gigmouse.

All the major decisions are made by the artistes themselves, from setting up the place to how many people they can invite. "We strive to create a warm session for people as well as the artiste to share their stories and speak to each other, which helps both parties," says Raghav. Their USP: there are many websites that arrange DIY sessions, but they don't have a specific ticketing platform of their own. This makes Gigmouse the first of its kind.
