About

VoteGeekScreenshotIn 2014, several geek bands from Ontario joined forces to compete in CBC Music’s Searchlight contest. They each entered separately and promoted one another with a campaign called #VoteGeek.

Although they did not win, they did advance farther than they had hoped and realized their combined efforts could help promote the geek music genre within Canada.

And so, GeekBands.ca was born! This website started as a database of Canadian geek musicians but then we wanted to catalog them all! It also contains resources that newer geek musicians might find helpful including a list of Canadian conventions, blogs, and grants.
