I am interested in gigs that require a MC, Sound Specialist or Both.
I prefer to get information about available gigs by text.
Welcome to your on-line availability profile.
This is intended for Just Press Play to keep track of how many gigs we can handle on any given weekend day. This is not intended to keep track of your availability specifically.
Please be sure to update this page with all dates you are NOT AVAILABLE. As you make plans, vacation, concerts, special events, just jump on your page and submit the dates you book up.
Just Press Play will book gigs with customers based on how many contractors we possibly have available on the date they are inquiring about.
This means it is important for you to update your page as frequently as possible so we don't book gigs we can't cover. I will never assign a gig without you expressing interest in the specific gig, but I will book gigs if I see we have sufficient amount of available (For Example: If I only have one person available on the date that is being inquired about, I will just contact you personally. If I see we have 3 or 4 people available, I will proceed with putting together a proposal.)
In the form below...
- Please indicate if you are interested in MC gigs, Sound Specialist gigs or both. (Sound Specialist means setup and pickup gigs but also will include gigs, where just a sound tech is needed and no major announcements will be made.)
- Your availability will only be considered for gigs that inquire within 35 miles of the locker you are assigned to. If you are interested in doing gigs outside of the 35 mile radius please be sure to indicate that. (Gigs outside of 35 miles from all three of our lockers, Naperville, Elgin and Morton Grove will include a Travel Fee you get paid in addition to your contract pay.)
- Please indicate if you are available for gigs Monday -Thursday. We don’t have many but it is nice to know who is available.
- Please list all Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Holiday days you are not available. (All gig dates are listed in your calendar at the top.)
-Please list any regular schedule restrictions. (Ex. Not Available Sundays after 5pm. Or not available on Fridays until after 5 pm)
-Please tell me how you would like to be notified when the website has been updated with new gigs or proposals available.
All gigs and proposals will be listed on-line at a page called: GIGS AVAILABLE
There is a BLUE button that will take you to this page at the bottom of this page.
If you are available and interested in doing the gig, please fill out the form on the page indicating you are interested. (NOTE: You must fill out the form below at least one time in order to be considered for any gigs.)
I will award gigs to those who fill out the form first over others, assuming we have availability from your locker. But I will also consider seniority, good customer feedback, ability to put all gear and cables back correctly, and providing timely feedback. Also, if you have ever not shown up to a gig on time or tried to back out of an assigned gig, without asking for my help to cover you first, this will impact my decision making on awarding the gig to you. If you are willing to work from other lockers, please indicate that as well. If there is a locker closer to the gig with available gear we may assign the gig from that locker instead of the locker you normally work out of.
I will not just award you a gig without you expressing interest in wanting to do the gig first, but I will be booking gigs, based on how many contractors I have available.
Yes! I am available to do gigs outside of 35 miles from my locker.
This is your schedule of dates you are NOT AVAILABLE. All dates in RED indicate the days you NOT AVAILABLE.

Please fill out the form at the bottom to indicate your availability and to be considered for gigs.
