“Friends partnered with Gigs4U to bring music to Westlake and McGraw Parks this summer with amazing results. Gigs4U provides talented local musicians and professional service for a very competitive price. Ed is great at pairing musicians with our events and develops creative ideas for programming public spaces. Love being part of bringing music to the parks and good gigs to musicians.”

Heidi Hughs, Friends Of the Waterfront Seattle

“I love that I live in a city that provides a variety of ways for musicians to make a living. I can honestly say that Gigs4U’s contributions are a main reason I am able to sustain a living doing what I love. The connections and opportunities I have gotten from Ed and Ramona have really helped me and my career. I expect great things from this new organization.”
