It’s amazing how modern technology has changed so many aspects of our daily lives. These days, it seems like there is an app for just about everything- calling rideshares to pick you up, meditating on-the-go, and even grocery shopping can all be done right from your smartphone!
Special Guest is the latest and greatest in the world of apps to make your life easier. Special Guest is an entertainment booking app that makes it easy to find live acts for your next party, corporate function, or other events. The app, founded by actor and comedian Damon Wayans Jr. and bestselling author and entrepreneur Kris Jones, operates as a one-stop shop for finding and booking live talent. The pair had the idea to create a talent booking app after realizing that a large number of talent is undiscovered and wanted to give these people a chance to manage their own careers. Musicians, comedians, magicians, and even celebrity impersonators are available for hire on the Special Guest app, making finding unique entertainment a breeze. If you’re throwing a party and looking for ska bands to entertain your guests, simply enter “ska bands” and your location, and Special Guest will show you a list of bands near you!
Special Guest is also a great tool for talent looking to get booked for paid gigs. Before apps like Special Guest, it was almost impossible to have a successful career in the entertainment industry without the help of an expensive talent manager. Now, performers can essentially manage their own careers right from their phones! Special Guest allows talent to create their own schedules and set their own rates, so there are no surprises the day of the gig. To sign up, performers create their own talent profiles complete with a bio, their rate, and any photos or videos of past performances. This lets people who are looking to hire them get a sense of who they are, their performance style, etc. Another great thing about Special Guest is that the app lets performers find paid gigs close to them, rather than having to travel for a job. Even performers living in relatively smaller cities can find work without having to make the trip to Los Angeles or New York.
The Special Guest app is currently available in cities in 25 states, making it easier than ever to find talent or get booked for paid gigs. The cool thing about Special Guest is that the app is beneficial to both the consumer and the talent, ensuring that both parties are satisfied with what they’re getting. The app lets users vet the talent they’re looking to hire beforehand and can communicate directly with performers about pricing, scheduling, and any other details that need to be worked out.
Special Guest is currently available in the Apple App Store and can be accessed as a desktop version as well. Whether you’re a performer looking for your next gig or searching for talent to entertain at your next party, downloading the Special Guest app is a no-brainer!
