Okay, full disclosure: I have NO IDEA if this service will be helpful, but it seemed interesting and I thought it better to engage than to ignore. Ed Beeson gave some of his time to answer a few questions about Gigs4U, an online service meant to connect musicians with venues, and this is what we talked about.
