About Us

 

Founder

Josh Spencer

Josh is the heart and soul of KickDrum, having single-handedly organized two independent music festivals (KickDrum Summer and Winter Marathons), managed four bands, and organized over 125 events with over 200 artists since June 2015.

More importantly, Josh prides himself on an egoless and open approach to event booking, production and promotion. In his mind, "collaboration is key" and it's not just about creating opportunities for a select few but for the music community as a whole. Montréal can be a tough place to book and play, so we're here to make it easier to find the right venue and the right supporting acts to make your show a success.

We're also incredibly happy to announce that, through our new affiliation with Jam for Justice, we have become the only non-profit event producer in Montréal!

This means that we are volunteer-run and 100% of our production fees go to support worthwhile social and environmental charities such as, USC Canada, Daraja, On Rock Community Services and many more.
