JUST A BUNCH OF ROADIES & TOURREADY UNITE
Tuesday//October 6, 2015
Buena Park, California - October 6, 2015 - TourReady, an online service that helps concert touring freelancers find work, today announced an alliance with JUSTABUNCHOFROADIES.ORG in which TourReady will donate a portion of subscription revenue to the non-profit.
TourReady’s CEO, Joey Gallagher, stated that the benefits of this relationship are two fold: the live event industry can use a new resource to find and hire freelancers while helping a cause that the industry supports and respects. “This industry is so tight knit that by teaming up with JUSTABUNCHOFROADIES.ORG we can collectively use our resources to deliver relief to the people who need it most. We are so honored to partner with JUSTABUNCHOFROADIES.ORG, and are willing to do anything we can to help spread the word and make a difference.”
TourReady and JUSTABUNCHOFROADIES.ORG will work on developing a volunteer section on the TourReady website that help members find opportunities to give back. This added feature is expected to help raise awareness and increase the number of music industry professionals involved in humanitarian projects worldwide.
When asked about the donation JUSTABUNCHOFROADIES.ORG commented, “We are very excited to join TourReady and their extraordinary team to further both our efforts to encourage volunteerism and compassionate careers in our industry, in hopes we can make a difference. We go around the world moving giant cities everyday and we leave nothing behind but a memory. Lets leave a house, a clinic, a group of children playing a children’s game with an indestructible ball, a hospital, a laughing healthy baby…that might grow up and change the world one day.”
TourReady is dedicated to simplifying crew management for concerts, tours, and festivals around the world by seamlessly connecting hiring production personnel to freelance professionals via its website and iOS app. Some of the most respected and knowledgeable touring professionals in the live event industry have contributed to TourReady's conception, making it the new standard to find work or hire crew. TourReady's simple and focused approach makes it the best platform to connect, find, and be found in the concert touring industry.
