Job Title:

Sponsorship & Promotion Assistant


Sunrise Concerts International Inc.


Markham, ON


Relying on 75 years of experience from its stakeholders, Sunrise Concerts International Inc. is a successful concerts promotion company active in the Toronto area concert scene.

The president of Sunrise Concerts has been an active independent promoter in the North American music industry for over 40 years.

After building his expertise through his work as Tom Jones' preferred promoter for 3 decades, and having worked with top of the scene artists such as Ray Charles, The Temptations, 4 Tops, Kenny Rogers, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers, and many others, the president of Sunrise Concerts successfully converted into launching his own promoting company.

His goal was to bring more diversified and dynamic acts to an audience with the means to pay a fair price for entertainment. His bet was a successful one, as he has since been booking shows all over the province of Ontario, developing privileged relationships with some of its most established theaters, such as the Sony Center, Massey Hall, the Roy Thompson Hall, the Scotia Bank Arena (formerly the Air Canada Center), the Flato Markham Theatre and the Oshawa Regent Theatre.
