Gifting to Support Live Music

Musicians are some of the most creative, passionate, caring and hard working people in our society, however, they are also some of the most underappreciated, underpaid and underinsured. The music industry is much like our society as a whole where the top 1% of the music industry earn the most and the rest struggle to make a comfortable living. Further, fewer people are purchasing music and streaming royalties for original music are next to nothing. Full-time musicians must now rely on compensation from gigs, tips, music and merchandise sales as they tour and/or play the local music scene. Many gigs, in cities like Nashville, are unpaid and musicians must push and rely solely on tips from their loyal fanbase, tourists and passersby. In today’s digital wallet society, fewer people are carrying cash, thus making it harder and harder to earn cash tips that supplement a musician’s income. GIFT THE BAND was created by music lovers to overcome THIS obstacle and make it easier for fans to show their appreciation in the form of digital monetary gifts!

Even if you have cash on hand, you may be a bit hesitant to walk up to the band or performer and give cash and you’re certainly not going to walk up and give them your credit/debit card information. With the Gift the Band Mobile Gifting Platform, it’s now easier and more convenient to show your appreciation. When a band/artist registers with Gift the Band, they are assigned a unique QR code and gifting page URL that you can use to seamlessly send a monetary gift with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover), Apple Pay or PayPal. The band/artist may have a sign, flyer, business card, coaster, button, sticker, etc. printed with their unique QR Code. Simply scan the QR Code or search for the band on our website, select a preset or open gift amount from the band/artist gifting page, enter your credit card details or Apple Pay/PayPal and submit your gift.

All musicians deserve the opportunity to make a decent living while sharing their talents and following their passion. We’ve made it easier than ever to show our appreciation and contribute to their well being. Together we can help ALL musicians reach their true earning potential and a better future. All YOU need to do is GIFT THE BAND!
