Organization Description

St.Royal Entertainment
Creative Live Music Agency in Toronto Ontario 

Our journey began on the other side of the world, in Melbourne, Australia. There, while leading his own band, Andrew St. Royal was looking towards home with a vision for a new entertainment company. After returning to Toronto, Andrew founded St. Royal Entertainment and assembled the first St. Royals band. This ambitious group endeavored to make their musical mark at events across the city.

Since 2011, our original St. Royals band has grown into a diverse, equal-opportunity family of talented and professional musicians, DJs, event producers, and entertainment consultants. In 2013 we welcomed our own audiovisual production and design company into the St. Royal group with the addition of St. Royal Production. We have grown from the original 7-member group back in 2011 - our first St. Royals band - into an entertainment staffing agency with a huge roster of talented professionals and we're grateful to get to work with amazing clients and leading brands.

We have the expertise to design seamless custom music & entertainment experiences, the talent to lead your celebration, and the experience to make sure you get the most out of your unique event. Let's talk!
