The Music Connect - fine tuning Squamish sound

On June 21st , join us at our CONNECT event, at the Squamish Adventure Centre, for a fun, innovative and creative musical evening. We will be featuring some local DJs, performers, promoters, venue hosts, distributors, music service and technology specialists, who will meet to discuss the current state of knowledge and opportunities of our local music scene as well as it’s cultural contribution.

We will begin with some networking and this will then be followed by presentations from three different participants in the local music scene. We will learn their unique challenges and opportunities. Facilitated by Jim Morris, the participants will share their experience and then Inside Edge attendees will be challenged with a 15 minute brainstorming Q & A session to assist in creative solutions.

Time permitting we will attempt to develop the unique sound of Squamish in music, by using each group’s iPad/iPhone (equipped with music creation apps).

It's going to be exciting and a lot of fun. See you there.

Thank you to our venue sponsor, the Squamish Adventure Centre and Our Connect Sponsors, TD Canada Trust and the District of Squamish. And of course our food sponsor Nesters Marketplace.

    This was a very dynamic, engaging and fun event that goes to show that the Sea to Sky region has quite the diverse combination of musical and technical talent. This remarkable creative pool has a bright future here. Thanks to all of our sponsors, attendees, as well as Nino (Sound and Soul) and MC Brent!

    Thanks all for coming out. Lots of good discussion and ideas shared. Thanks to our panelists also. A central venue for both performing and sharing resources sound like next steps. I think the Squamish events committee information would be useful to share. Does any one have more details on this?

    Remember get out there and support our local talent.

    We need more indoor venues. Right now there is only one place to have a live show or DJ show - the brew pub. It closes at 12. The cliffside is dead for now. The OP is dead. C-level sits empty. The railway museums rates make it impossible for promoters to make money with music events. We have a natural amphitheatre already, its called Loggersports. The casino is allright...but not great. Its ironic that there has never been a be more lively music scene and so few venues.

    Classy Jeff, I like it... Outdoor (music) capital... Great news, Andrea Graham one of the founders of the Bass Coast Project has agreed to join our panel at the event to talk about her event. Awesome.

    I think it would be really interesting to find a natural amphitheatre using the granite cliffs, maybe around smoke bluffs park. Would be cool for unplugged guitar or very cool for a classical string quartet a couple of times a year.

    Yep, contain the people downtown, local business benefits, people have a double whammy reason to get dt on a sat.

    Nice - I like the idea of integrating the farmers market into the music scene...

    1 idea. Better utilize the downtown amphitheater/sculptural piece. Create a music in the park day, saturday's after the farmers market or sundays', get local bands, muzo's, anyone wanting an audience, grow from there. Worked awesomely in Auckl city, NZ, now a full time division, music in the city parks on w/e's.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
