DemoRama LIVE has been a wonderfully entertaining series, showcasing Ontario’s talent over the past 8 months. We are down to the last opportunities (in Peterborough with special guest Tebey and Belleville with special guest Colin Amey) to show off your talent before the CMAO presents the grand finale.
The next DemoRama LIVE is coming to Belleville with host radio station Cool 100. Our special guest performer & expert panelist, Colin Amey, is a CCMA & CMAO Award-nominated country artist with hit singles like “Go For A Soda” at national country radio. Other panelists include CMAO Past President and Canadian Country Hall-of-Famer, Barry Haugen, Cool 100’s Program Director Paul Fergusen, and the event’s host, CMAO Director Peter Linseman (Music Mentor Productions).
The winners to date include: Allister Bradley, Roger Beckett, Shae Dupuy, Steve Rivers, Jesse Slack, Augusta Campoli, Grace Wall, Jeff Young and Glen Code. They will join the 2 winners chosen from Peterborough and 2 more from Belleville. These fine artists will each perform 15 – 20 min. showcase sets at the “Best Of” DemoRama LIVE event, which will be held on Tues April 29th and Wed April 30th, 7:30 to 9:30 pm at host venue Boots & Bourbon in Toronto.
