Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin. Music biz 101 is in session. 

Music Ontario and Music and Film in Motion present Communities Connect: Thunder Bay. This free education session is intended to bridge the gap between Ontario’s music markets.

Have a music related question? Now is the time to ask.  The Foundry is the place to be today at 5pm.

This free info session is open to the public.

A panel of music industry professionals have travelled to Thunder Bay today and will be answering questions for all things music related.

The panel includes agent Jeremy Giacomin from Paquin Entertainment Agency, manager Stu Anderson at Mighty Cypress Entertainment, Emily Haffenden in Licensing and Synchronization at Aporia Records, Jen McKerral of Music and Film in Motion, hometown boys Dave Grant and Scott Burke of rock band Poor Young Things, and MusicOntario’s Rosalyn Dennett. 

Communities Connect promises to be an evening of education and music, focussing on Thunder Bay area artists, and how to generate income both on and off the stage. 

An experienced panel of music industry professionals will be answering questions and giving advice on how to further one’s music career. Schedule of events:

  • 5pm panelist meet and greet
  • 6pm panel discussion
  • 8pm local artist showcase (Emily Kohne, Nick Sherman and Greenbank)

Thunder Bay folk/rock duo Greenbank (formerly Greenbank Trio) burst onto the local music scene back in 2012. 

The duo are excited to have been chosen to showcase tonight for listeners and panelists. 

“We’re hoping to build contacts for the future.  It’s not too often that industry folks are in Thunder Bay specifically to work with local artists. Having the chance to hang out, chat, and play a few tunes comfortably on home turf is a great opportunity for networking that we might not find elsewhere,” says vocalist/guitarist Jimmy Breslin.
