Welcome to the Patreon for Chinatown Sessions. If you don't know it already, we film and record  live off the floor music sessions in Studio549 located in Victoria, Canada's historic Chinatown. 

Victoria's music scene is healthy and growing at a torrid pace. New bands seem to be forming at every turn and it is not unusual to find that a band has chosen to relocate to Victoria over Vancouver in order to be closer to American west coast. At Chinatown Sessions, our goal is to help put Victoria on the map and show the rest of the world that this isn't just a sleepy tourist town anymore. 

Over the past year and a half, we have shot and recorded nearly fifty acts. 

With everyone of us related in some way to the music industry, we know how hard it is in this day and age for musicians to make money with their art and their craft. Touring is expensive (especially in Canada where urban centres are separated by vast distances) and, while the internet has made the world more accessible in some ways, it has also made being heard outside of your local market more difficult. While providing a marketing tool that can help bands reach new audiences and book shows out of town, we have always wanted to avoid putting the financial burden onto the artists themselves. Thus, we have not charged them anything and have instead opted to operate on a shoe-string budget. Unfortunately, we can no longer afford to operate completely unfunded

Here is where you can come in. Help share Victoria's bubbling music scene with the rest of the world by helping us cover the production costs. 

Whether or not you become a patron, We hope that you enjoy our videos and we encourage you to support local music by going to shows. 

If you are in a band looking to book a session with us, please fill out the form on our website.
