About Get Live Music

Get Live Music is Canada’s freshest national booking agency, representing a wide variety of choice artists in the music business.  In its infancy, Get Live Music was conceived by musicians who had spent years touring western Canada, and in 1999, decided to create an agency that catered to all venues and styles of music.  The agency aspires to meet the personal and individual needs of its clients and musicians from cafes to concerts.  Currently, Get Live Music has established themselves as a contender in the industry, and is noted for dependability, quality and professionalism.
