Creating Extraordinary Entertainment Experiences Since 2001

Entertainment is the cornerstone of any event, so you want to make sure you’re bringing in the best, most qualified team you can – but how can you be sure you’re bringing on the right entertainment company for the job when all you have to go on is a business name and a list of performers? That’s no way to do things, which is why we’re happy to tell you a bit about ourselves.

We’re PM GIGS – pleased to meet you.

Our Values

  • Music is what evokes our emotions.
  • Connection happens through shared experiences.
  • Reliable entertainment is a must.
  • Caring that your event exceeds your vision!

Our Mission

To create extraordinary entertainment, turning performance into memorable experiences.

Our Promise

We promise to provide creative and seamless entertainment solutions you can rely on!

With clients who’ve been with us since the very beginning, and for every party, event, or get-together we’ve played in Calgary, Banff, Lake Louise, and all across Alberta, that’s a lot of memories we’re proud to have helped create!

About Pat McGannon

Nearly two decades years ago, Pat McGannon had a dream: to pursue his love of music and entertainment full-time. Pat had been playing shows and gigs part-time, but he was frustrated with the approach that so many entertainment companies in Calgary seemed to be comfortable taking. Not to mention that he also wanted to work full-time in the music business. Seeing music and entertainment as the heart and soul of any event, Pat saw an opportunity to be able to keep performing while also booking events that emphasized the emotional connection between performer and audience. Just like that, PM GIGS was born.

Awards

We’re honored to have been recognized as the “Best Public Event” and for having the “Best Event Logistics and Support Services” by the International Esprit Awards and were awarded “Best Live Event” and “Best Entertainer” by the Calgary Event Awards (the very same folks who also bestowed PM GIGS head honcho Pat McGannon with the prestigious title of “Outstanding Industry Professional” – truly a humbling honour). There’s nothing like receiving a standing ovation for a job well-done!
