“We wanted to offer Montreal musicians a platform for their talent. There needed to be a hub where musicians could connect to the client and client to the musician. There is a bevvy of amazing live talent in the city of Montreal but is not always reachable to the consumer. We felt that we needed to fill the void by creating a direct source for live musical entertainment.

Direct Entertainment Group has quickly become the ambassadors and link to this growing need for live entertainment. As promoters of live musical talent, we are always searching for the newest and freshest acts while offering live entertainment in a way that is classic but unique.

Our mission is to open the door to a new generation of entertainment possibilities for our special events industry but still cater to a client that searches for that nostalgic classic sound. Coming from a performance and event management background, we have had the opportunity to be a part of both sides of the special events industry. From stage performance to behind the scenes production, we have gained the understanding and experience of what it takes to produce a flawless entertainment act and event.

Our large pool of talent offers a wide range of options for any event in all genres and instrument configurations. Our experience in entertainment offers you fresh new entertainment concepts that cater to every generation and age group. When you work with Direct Entertainment Group, you are not only hiring professional music acts, you are working with a team and network of musicians who understand the flawless execution of an event and how to truly engage and deliver a musical experience to your audience.

Whether you are hiring musicians for a wedding ceremony, live music for your corporate event or music for a milestone birthday party, our attention to detail, professionalism and client satisfaction is something that we take very seriously. Business integrity, professional code of business ethics and know - how is what has spawned our reputation. We work honestly and diligently to gain the confidence of our clients and build relationships. It is these virtues that our clients can depend on and what supports and maintains Direct Entertainment Group as the leading source for live music and entertainment acts in Montreal."
