  1. 1. The problem People want to book live music, but don’t know where to go. Under the radar artists are nearly impossible to discover. On the radar artists have their sales hijacked by intermediaries.
  2. 2. Dozens of intermediaries all try to sell the same artist at different prices. These intermediaries add a markup of 20% to 100%. The result: 1. Rich intermediary 2. Rich Google 3. Poor booker 4. Poor Jan Smit
