RBC Lakeside Drive-In at Ontario Place features live performances and film premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival

Toronto, ON – Yesterday was the first of two Dedicated RBC Nights at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), held at RBC Lakeside Drive-In at Ontario Place. The night began with a performance by First Up with RBCxMusic artist Cat Clyde, then led into the premiere of Viggo Mortensen’s directorial debut Falling.

RBC ‘Best Seats in the House’ program gifted frontline workers from local communities the chance to have a special night out, including front row seats, and a swag bag with delicious goodies and gifts from RBC.

The RBC Lakeside Drive-In has featured a live, socially distanced performance by a different up-and-coming Toronto artist each night, including Devontée, Jeremie Albino, Avery Raquel, Sylo Nozra and Lydia Persaud and guests can look forward to Basement Revolver, Liza, Luna Li and James Baley the rest of the week.

Publisher and CEO. First & foremost, father, son, brother and uncle. I am also a huge music fan, promoter and marketing & promotions maniac. As a fulltime musician for the past 35 years myself (yikes, that’s a long time!), I’ve come to appreciate the fact that I am able to perform and sing for people and in return, them enjoy it as much as I do. There is something to be said for that exchange of energy and good vibes that live music brings to all, from the stage to the seats, there is nothing like it and I so look forward to feeling that again when we are out of this crazy mess we are in. Music is needed desperately in everyone’s lives. The goal is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the music scene by featuring their new music, events and in general, some light into the changes we’ve all had to adjust to in 2020. We all feel the strain in every aspect of these changes and are going to try to do our best to fill our cups up with some fantastic local music while many so of us hang on through this bumpy ride we are on. ? Making an effort to change our own thoughts and habits, can strike a chord mentally and change us along with our communities lives. Be safe and…let’s ROCK N ROLL!
