New Version of Fezah App Improves Artist Discovery in 5 Ways

Fezah, entertainment’s booking app, has just released a new version of its Android app. We have totally reworked the Fezah App home screen to make it easier to showcase and navigate our growing artist portfolio in Uganda and Kenya. This will allow you to get to the artist that you want a lot quicker. Here is what’s new.

1. Featured Events
It’s quite typical for us to receive a call that goes; “Hey, I’m looking for a saxophone player that performed at the last Social Media Awards. I don’t know his name. Can you help?”. With this new release, you can find that event, and click through to see the artist that performed there, along with all the information you need to book them to perform at your own event – pricing, sample songs, videos, reviews, pictures, bio.

2. Popular Genres
We’ve made it easy for you to narrow our growing artist portfolio to only those artists that play that kind of music that suits your taste. We’ve placed genres front and centre. Clicking a genre like Jazz on the new home screen with show you a list of Jazz artists available. Clicking Soul will show you a list of artists that do Soul. We’ve got over 15 genres represented on Fezah, from rock, world, funk, lugaflo, genge, and more.

3. Recently Viewed Artists
We know based on our data, that a booking decision takes up to 12 weeks to close. A customer looks through a number of artist profiles before they finally make a decision on who to book. We’ve now made it easier for you to find the artists you recently reviewed, as you continue along your decision making process.

4. New Artists on Fezah
Promoters and visionaries are a big part of our Fezah community. They want to know Sauti Sol long before the group becomes mainstream. Every month, the Johnnie Walker Live Edition books a fresh, typically up and coming, artist to perform at its popular monthly event at Guvnor. With this new release, we’ve made it easy for them and you to identify who’s new. That way you can stay ahead of the curve, and can keep your stage vibrant with fresh talent.

5. Top Musicians, DJs, MCs
Not everyone is as adventurous as you are. Once in a while, all you want is a tried and tested artist to rock your event. The top lists (Top musicians, Top DJs, Top MCs) will show you a lists ranked by who is being booked most, who’s most reliable, who gets great reviews for performances as well as many other criteria.

We are constantly improving the Fezah App and underlying service based on learnings from our artists, customers, users, and advisors. This is the 60th version of the app, since our initial release on May 15, 2015. We’ll continue to listen, learn, and remain the quickest way to book a musician, band, DJ, or MC to perform at your event.

Go ahead; install the new release, take it for a spin, and share your feedback with us. Reach us on +256.755.111.222, +256.79.086.9700 or team@fezah.com.

Fezah Artists to Get Regular Airplay on 106.1 Jazz FM

We are excited to announce that starting today, Fezah artists will get regular airplay on 106.1 Jazz Fm. This is part of a Fezah and Jazz FM partnership aimed at promoting the growing number of talented artists available on the Fezah App. Fezah is entertainment’s booking app available through Google Play, with over 150 musicians, bands, and DJs from Uganda and Kenya. 106.1 Jazz Fm is your home of Jazz, Blues, and Soul in Kampala, streaming internationally on www.jazzfm.co.ug.

As part of this partnership, every hour 106.1 Jazz FM will play at least one song by a Fezah artist on a slot called #ChezaWithFezah. Additionally, an extended 1-hour Cheza with Fezah radio show will air on 106.1 Jazz FM every Saturday from 1pm to 2pm. The radio show will exclusively feature Fezah artists, covering album reviews, artist interviews, Fezah favourites in Jazz and other genres, and much more.

106.1 Jazz FM will also directly run campaigns aimed at promoting booking of the different Fezah artists. The Jazz FM audience is one that appreciates great music performances. In just a few clicks, Fezah makes it really easy for them, and everyone else, to book great musicians, bands, DJs, or MCs for their events. Highlighting this to Jazz FM’s growing audience will be good for everyone; Jazz FM and its listeners, as well as Fezah and the artists.

We know that radio plays a big part in how people discover music and musicians. We also know that musicians struggle to get their music played on radio. This partnership will go a long way in solving this problem. Artists that are already on Fezah and would like to get their music played on 106.1 Jazz FM can upload the music to their Fezah profile through fezah.com, or drop their music off at the Fezah offices. Artists that are not on Fezah are welcome to join Fezah at no cost, at fezah.com/signup.
