SYDNEY, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- If you've ever organised an event of any kind, you know it can be stressful. Children's parties are getting more and more elaborate, corporate functions can blend into each other, and you want milestone occasions like anniversaries or 50th celebrations to be extra special…without costing a fortune.
Greg Churchill, a Sydney father of two and computer programmer has hit upon a novel solution - Gigfizz.com.
"My father-in-law is a real Marilyn fan," Greg explains. "For his sixty-fifth birthday I wanted to do something unique which involved a Marilyn impersonator, but it was impossible to get one at the venue I wanted on the date we had booked for."
"Then again, friends had organised a sixth birthday for their son…he's really into magic, but without a personal reference you are really taking pot luck with an entertainer, and the one our friends booked for hundreds of dollars wasn't the best. It left the birthday boy disappointed."
"It got me to thinking about a solution…and I hit on the idea of Gigfizz.com."
"Gigfizz.com is a site where people can browse entertainers from around the world, view their performance to get a good idea of the quality, and order a short video message from their chosen entertainer. The best part is that every message is different and personalised making it extra-special."
"You can choose from characters such as Santa, Elvis, Marilyn, wizards, mermaids, pirates, fairies and more. We are looking to expand into more look-a-likes and other popular personalities who are happy to deliver short video messages."
"The best part is it's easy, economical, and you can watch the results over and over again. Kids and adults alike absolutely love it because it's different and affordable."
Greg is glad that the site is up and running and is gaining such good feedback. "It's been hard work, but it's been really exciting too," he says. "The Elvis impersonator is a professional direct from Memphis, and you can't get more authentic than that!"
Brian Lee Howell is that Elvis, and he thinks Gigfizz.com is the perfect set up. "The entertainer can use their skills to send a personalised video message anywhere in the world at a fraction of the price, and customers can view samples and browse different possibilities for birthday parties or special events all in one location."
