About Us

Anyone who says there’s no live music in Vancouver just doesn’t know where to look….I was one of those people not so very long ago!!

For me, the Live Music In Vancouver site is a Labour of Love.  It was borne out of my love of all types of music…..from the Classic Rock of my Youth (we didnt’t know it was classic at the time!) to Blues, Classic Rock, R&B, Motown, Funk, Soul, roots, amd alternative music…

We will be listing all the fun, affordable (or free!) live music in date order and in proximity order to downtown Vancouver under the “Events” tab.

I truly believe there are loads of people, like me, who would get out to live music much more often, if it were easier to find out about…without necessarily knowing all the venues or the musicians’ names.

I will endeavour to share existing events, promote events I have just been made aware of in such a way that the average person, who may not be terribly musically knowledgeable can get a sense of what they’ll hear at any given show.

Before I started following the various posts of the artists and venues I discovered (often by word of mouth), I just “googled” live music in Vancouver.

Unfortunately though,  Google only gave me the ve ticketed events and enormous directories of musicians whose names I didn’t recognize, usually playing music late at night, in crowded loud venues catering to a younger crowd.

LIVE MUSIC IS A PIECE OF MUSIC YOU WILL NEVER HEAR AGAIN, GET OUT AND SEE IT!

Our Story

I was born in England, near Liverpool.  I bought my first LP when I was four.

Over a span of 20 years I worked at the New Music Show and MuchMusic.

The jobs in between always had a musical element to them also.

Music has always defined my life and this is a way for me to give back.

“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
