IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF D.C. MUSIC CONCERT EVENT:
Do you have a fan base IN TORONTO/ETOBICOKE?
D.C. Music Events are held in Concert Theatre Venues including the D.C. Music Theatre. These venues have no walk in crowd. Bands must have a Toronto/Etobicoke fan base in order to play our clubs, especially if they are on tour or an out-of-town band.D.C. Music and Bands are EXPECTED to promote the event; handing out flyers online/on the street and word of mouth can make for a great show!Admission to shows is on a per show basis. Some events are ticket, some are advance guest list and some are pay at the door. THIS IS NOT A BATTLE-TYPE SETTING!! Each band is always compensated fairly and the same way. We keep track of the draws of each band that plays our events. This helps us decide what bands are solid opening acts for our high profile events.

SOME TIPS FOR BANDS:
Do not over-expose! Keep it to ONE Toronto show a month or less! If you burn out your crowd, who will be there to watch you?If your band is from out-of-town: Rent a party bus to get your fans down to the venue
Network, network, network! Adding a local band to your bill always helps
