Top 10 Solo Musician Categories

Posted by Peter G on March 15, 2013

We love all of our music categories equally, of course. However, in terms of overall gig requests, there are some notables that stand out above the rest. Here are our top 10 most requested Solo Musician categories...

This is based on gig requests submitted by clients in the past three years. Of course, there are other ways to determine “top categories,” such as booking percentage. But our members often want to know what categories get the most requests (so here you go).

We’re not suggesting that you changing your category just to get more leads. However, if you specialize in a variety of talents, you may want to experiment with different primary categories. Hopefully you’ll get more leads, and if not, you can always switch it back!
