Recently I was asked on Facebook, by a US based Band, about getting their Band booked to play in Toronto.
If one Band was curious about playing in Toronto, there might be others. I’m not a Booking Agent, but hope that this post might be of help to those who would like to book a Musician or a Band to play at a Toronto concert venue.
The number of Toronto concert venues has grown. Gone are the days when the Gasworks and The Colonial dominated the live music scene on Yonge St in Toronto, along with The Knob Hill Hotel which was out in Scarborough.
The following is a list of some of the larger concert venues. There are also many smaller clubs which have live music.
