    I manage my band. I’m looking for something like Planning Center Online but less focused on religious institutions.

    I have about 30 musicians/techs that I book a few times a week.

    I’m currently using Google Calendars, Dropbox, and Wordpress to handle everything I’d like to accomplish.

    I've been doing research for about a couple of months and have tried a LOT of different software solutions but none are geared towards what I need or they're EXTREMELY expensive and beyond the scope of what we need.

    I’m looking for some software/app/solution that will allow me to:

    • send Calendar requests … send a request to a musician for them to ACCEPT or DECLINE to let me know they’re available for the gig.

    • have a possible portal so each team member can login and see what gigs/events they're scheduled to

    • ability to email or text or push notify of any changes or important updates

    • ability to host MP3’s and sheet music PDF pages so the musicians can preview the gig materials beforehand.

    • mapping coordinates so when i add the address of the gig, it can hotlink to Google Maps or Waze

    • an ability to show each musician/tech what gigs THEY have coming up booked with me. For instance, “Mike” on guitar can click and see all the dates he’s booked with me.

    • mobile app integration if possible

    I’ve looked for months for things and I’ve come up short on a lot of things.

    If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, I’d really appreciate it.

    In what way are you currently using Wordpress?

    What CRM/Project-type apps have you looked at? I'm thinking that everyone would need to be full participants in the CRM app which might not be practical but I could be wrong.

    I'm using Wordpress for just an info page for our Team.
    I created a Master Page where it has all the dates posted on it. They click on a date and it opens a page with all the Events Info on it.

    Software I've looked into:

    There's more but I can't think of them at the moment.

    Was wondering if anyone does similar stuff and has any pointers or suggestions.

    To get everyone involved in the App wouldn't be a problem. In fact, it would be welcomed as they could possibly have Mobile App access and Push Notifications for event info/reminders.
