How does Muso make live music easier?

We know that organising live music can be an operational nightmare.

On Muso we streamline everything from sourcing to paying the musician, to ensure that you find a high quality act as efficiently as possible.

Muso’s artist team goes through every single musician that signs up to Muso and selects musicians to have access to the gig feed (where your gigs are listed).

Our artist scout team is also heavily connected to the music industry/community and scout new artists to join the platform every week to ensure you have the best of the best.

Every genre you can think of. From 12 piece Cuban bands to classical pianists to indie rock bands, we have a diversity of artists from all corners of the industry. If you can’t find a specific musician type reach out to our team, we will scout them or you. We recently scouted a few bouzouki players for a Greek venue - no joke.
