Blog wins the Eircom Spider Award at a gala event hosted by comedian Dara O’Briain at the Convention Center in Dublin on 10th November 2011.

Eircom Spiders WinnerThe shortlist nominees are read out by Dara O’Briain who then announces “This site allows users to find the perfect musical match in their locality for their Wedding, Corporate function or Private Party. The judges liked the user interface and the context-specific, simple search functionality. Overall it’s clean, simple and easy to use.... is the clear winner”.

With music being so socially orientated, visitors to the website can follow artists on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates and even view band videos via a YouTube link. We also have a vibrant section for Original Irish acts where visitors can listen to their music 'free' and even download the tracks directly from iTunes.

“What’s so unique about is it’s a one-stop-shop for all ‘live’ music entertainment in Ireland. And because we are not an agent or management company, the customer can negotiate directly with the Acts and cut out the middleman to reduce costs. In essence we are making live music in Ireland more accessible” says Founder Liam Carey.

At present there are over 100 wedding bands, DJs, coverbands, church singers and original Irish bands on and that number is growing by the week.
