Whenever Charleston resident Ashley Veach was out enjoying live music at a local bar, or watched a musician busking in the streets, she realized there was something missing - most people don't carry cash and are unable to tip the performers. So Veach created an app called GroupE, which provides a way for fans to support and connect with local musicians.
The app allows fans to:
- Tip musicians
- Request songs
- View musician's social media, bio, pics, show dates, music, merchandise, and more
- Add musician's gigs to their phone calendars and get notifications
- Purchase merchandise
- Book performers
- The app includes a map of your city, which you can search by music genre to find live local music
GroupE takes 10% of anything given and then gives half of that to music in the underdeveloped school systems for things like band equipment, uniforms, and more.
