Happy Sixth Anniversary

Cheers to Six Years!

Six Years ago today, Ottawa music fans took a chance on a new venue that hadn’t even gotten its liquor license yet and lined up down Elgin Street for the first time to see The Balconies perform the very first show at LIVE! on Elgin.

Two years of street closure, one global pandemic, and well over a thousand live performances later, and we’re still here. We are still here thanks to the dedicated & tireless work from our amazing staff, and thanks to the loyalty of so many talented performers who continue to choose our room to present their art.

Artists who have performed our stage over the past six years have gone on to be nominated for (and win) many honors including the newly minted Capital Music Awards, East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Independent Music Awards, Juno Awards, and more. When this pandemic is over, we promise to continue to be here as a steppingstone for all types of artists to help them follow their dreams.

Until then, all we can say is, THANK YOU!

Summer Update

LIVE! on Elgin is currently booking performances for the fall/winter 2021 season.

While we don't have a definitive date that restrictions will be lifted; we are confident that by some point in the fall, we will be allowed to host full capacity performances.

Please be patient with us as we wait for everything to return safely.

If you'd like to book a performance with us for the fall, please contact Jon Evenchick at with as much information about your act as possible.

Stay safe friends!
