Hello Everyone!

As part of our on-going outreach, we are now going to facilitate bi-monthly freelance musicians meet-ups.

These meet-ups are aimed at gigging musicians who work in bars, pit bands, corporate events, go on tour, do session work, and any other limited engagements. These meetings will provide a space for freelancers to chat about everything from promotion, social media, and stage presence to working conditions, pay, and contracts.

Host: Greg Bruce
When: Tuesday, April 18th, 11am
Where: Jumping Bean, TD Building, Duckworth Street Entrance (at Prescott)

Please leave a comment if you'd like to talk about something specific at next week's event.

If you'd like to host a meet-up, please let us know at cfm820@gmail.com

About Greg:

Greg Bruce is a woodwind player, educator, improviser, and composer based in his home town of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.

As an in-demand performer, Greg has thoroughly toured eastern Canada with groups such as Ouroboros, Baytown, and Idlers. In St. John’s vibrant independent music scene, he can be heard playing with prog-pop/hip-hop act Hear/Say and the Newish Klezmer Ensemble. Greg is also connected to the classical and jazz communities in Newfoundland and is often involved with the Wreckhouse Jazz and Blues Festival as well as the internationally known Sound Symposium. If that weren’t enough, Greg frequently acts as musical director for Wonderbolt Circus.

In April 2012, Greg finished his master's degree at Memorial University where he studied saxophone and clarinet under Paul Bendzsa, and was awarded the title of "Fellow of the School of Graduate Studies" for academic excellence. He occasionally teaches as a per-course instructor at the School of Music there. Greg is a former dancer, and in 2005 helped found Newfoundland’s first breakdance crew, East Rock Crew.

Greg is president of Canadian Federation of Musicians Local 820 – the Newfoundland and Labrador Musicians’ Association, and for several years served on the executive of the Lecturer’s Union of Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador (LUMUN).

At present, Greg is teaching music lessons at his home studio, writing furiously for Ouroboros, and learning as many Balkan and Klezmer tunes as he can.

And he's vegan.
