    I think the site is about finding the bands that are playing in your area, locally. It would appear that you can search for the band you are interested in, in any location, and find out when and where they are going to be.

    Immediately I tried to change the location. It was not clear to me immediately how to change my location. I physically had to click on the green area that said to change the location. I am used to having the words underlined or highlighted where to click. I am also an avid believer that the Contact Us button should be easily found and would have appreciate a much larger font for this button.

    Other than these above-mentioned items, I found the site very easy to navigate and very user friendly. I think it’s definitely comparable to sites of similarity.

    Overall, it’s a fantastic site which captures my attention with the ease and simplicity of it’s design.

    1) The site is about finding music bands currently in concert for people who are interested in concerts in their local or desired area .

    2) I like the cute like black music characters and the site’s concept is very easy to grasp and user-friendly. The webpage is easy to read and clean looking not too cluttered or wordy and I like the logo used “an old record” on the browser. It seems their focus is on delivering up to date info via phone app.

    3) I did not like seeing 2 find/search boxes as it seems redundant. The logo, although different, is hard to read. I suggest changing around the graphics, colors and aesthetics so it is more appealing and believable.
    I was a bit confused as to why bands was on the left and events on the right. I would create 2 linkable sections for each group: bands, events, festivals, etc. where visitors can click on and get information desired.

    I was left wanting to know more about the site itself such as: the creators, where it is located, more events/concerts, customer service/help section, faq’s, how is Gigzoo different? What is your niche? Is there a membership? e-newsletter? Do you offer discounted rates? Not much information provided.

    I did like the concept of getting up-to-date info on my phone and ease of use of site.

    I like the upcoming events box, although, I think it should be in the main page.

    4) In comparison to other sites providing similar services, Gigzoo unfortunately does not seem to provide much to a client, I didn’t see any real added benefit other than the phone app to someone seeking for bands/events, there needs to be something different about Gigzoo that will draw people to use it.

    5) Again, I suggest the layout of the site to begin with, connect to social media immediately, add lots of information and venue but not to make it too wordy or cluttered as these types of sites are attractive when they are organized and have snippets of info and graphics to peek someone’s curiosity.

    Create an easy to remember tagline or slogan. Add more links, pictures, content that will want the user to continue to browse around the site..a fusion of music info, unique identity with a modern touch.

    At first glance, the site seems very simple. I expect to get awesome information from the search box. To my surprise I could not search by location to see what is going on around me. I found a band I would love to see live, however only 2 tour dates were listed off to the side (both on the east coast) and were not relevant to my location (on the west coast). As the site is now, I did not get anything useful out of my experience. I think there is a lot of potential to this site, but the benefit to the consumer needs to be refined.
