What is Matchmaking?
Matchmaking is our system of connecting musicians with venues. After creating an account, venues can browse musician profiles and vice versa and participants request a booking. A few tips:

  • Don’t be shy! Feel free to send requests. It helps to put yourself out there and you can book as many shows as you want.
  • Respond to requests in a timely manner. No one likes to wait to hear back. If it’s not a good fit, let the other party know so they can move on.
  • Follow up! You can send direct messages through the system or reach out via phone or email.
  • In the end, just about everyone who wants to participate will match up. If you need assistance, send a message to OCA@CoMo.gov

Who can host?

  • Is your venue located in the City of Columbia?
  • Is it free and accessible to the public?
  • Can you maintain clearance on the sidewalk for the pedestrian passage?
