Abstract

For local musicians, finding shows to play can be a hassle. Traditionally, musicians would need to acquire a venue owner or manager’s contact information and talk, email, or text back and forth until they come to an agreement. This takes up everybody's time, which is why we felt there should be a better way. Our goal was to provide both musicians and venue owners a simple, more intuitive way to connect with one another. Harmony users can search for musicians and venues they’re interested in and book shows directly on our website. Users’ contact information is listed directly on their profiles to allow for quick and easy communication. They can even browse top rated users on our home page to quickly find talented, reliable people to work with. The shows users schedule will appear on their Google calendars automatically, helping them save time and stay organized. We also provide our users with a log of all of their upcoming and previously played shows. There are similar websites we’ve come across in our research, but we feel that Harmony not only offers more useful features, but is also truly representative of local musicians in Salem and Monmouth. Music is an important part of being human. It allows us to connect with each other in a way that we normally can’t. Many musicians also rely on the money they make from playing shows as a main source of income. We created Harmony to support local musicians and to help bring people in our communities together.
