mission & us

For Hits and Gigs, a name decided by the community for the community. We want to create a place for musicians and music enthusiasts to discover new bands and amazing concert experiences. 

Three women run this show, Elise O'Leary, Katelyn Pawlish, and Emily Koch. We strive to make this blog as organized and entertaining as possible.

A college student studying journalism who decided being a music blogger was a hobby I need to have in my life. 

Elise O'Leary


Still in high school, trying to start her break in the music industry early, in the best and most fun way ever. I love all I have learned and can't wait to use it.
