Fans want to connect with musicians and artists are in need of funds, so Groopy was developed as a marketplace where everyone wins.

Before being backed by big names in the music industry, Groopy's online marketplace is a place where emerging bands can go to find places to stay while on tour. By making these connections, brands are able to cut costs and develop new friends and followers all over the country.

The site is modeled like Airbnb, with a place for people to connect with hosts and give positive or negative feedback as it is deserved. By cutting out the services in between, bands and individuals are getting the chance to get to know one another on a much more intimate level, which is vital for album sales and ultimately, the band's success.
