meet the team

GigMasters was launched in 1997 by our fearless leaders Mike and Kevin, two life-long friends who wanted to combine their love of music and parties with their passion for the web. Today, Team GigMasters is comprised of over thirty web developers, marketers, and account specialists obsessed with perfecting the experience of booking live entertainment and party vendors.

As a kid, Mike's sister convinced him he came from a pet store. Now that he's a Dad, he's pretty sure he knows where babies really come from.


Before launching GigMasters, Kevin worked as everything from a repo man to a stock broker. He once drove a Buick with no brakes from East Hampton, LI to Manhattan.
