Fri Nov 29
Ventresca

Cashbox Canada participated in our first Indie Week Canada and oh what a week it was!

Continuing our journey of the Cashbox Caravan, (recently performing in France and Sweden) we had two official showcases and both were met with resounding success. In addition, our acts performed at other venues throughout Indie Week, all to great reviews and accolades.

The first Cashbox Caravan Showcase was Thursday, November 14 at the B-Side Lounge, a cozy gem of a venue with a great stage and friendly staff. A cocktail hour show from 5-7pm featured Toronto’s newest shining star Ventresca, followed up by veteran singer-songwriters Barry Stagg and Don Graham.

The Cashbox Caravan continues its journey, having stopped in France (MIDEM in Cannes, France) and Orebro, Sweden (Live at Heart Sweden) and ending our year back here in Canada at the ever-popular Indie Week 2019.

“The idea behind the travelling Cashbox Canada Caravan was to give indie artists a chance to showcase at major events and have the opportunity to perform for agents, pr people, and labels with first-class sound and on professional stages all on a global level,” says organizer Sandy Graham. “We are proud to be able to offer an alternative way of showcasing at major events where the competition for submission is so high.”

Now the third event this year of the Cashbox Caravan will be back in the country of origin for the magazine, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

“Indie Week has given us the opportunity to bring talent from other areas in the world so we will be able to have acts from not just Canada, but Sweden, Spain and the USA,” Graham says.

The first CASHBOX CARAVAN SHOWCASE is at the cocktail hours of:
5 pm – 8 pm
Thursday November 14
B-Side Lounge (669 College St)
Doors: 5:00pm

Ventresca Releases 'Craving'

Fri Oct 11, 2019

At only 17 years old and with a future as bright as the California sun, Canadian pop singer Ventresca is poised and ready to take make her mark. The Toronto, Ontario born songstress has been involved in the arts for most of her young life. She started off as a dancer at the age of 5, performing and dancing at the prestigious school of Canadian Dance Unit, earning herself experience and an array of awards. There was always music around the house and listening to her brother and watching the talented Miley Cyrus on TV during her Hannah Montana run, was a big influence on young Ventresca.

“I guess that’s when I got the music bug. I watched that and thought I would love to do be a singer and performer.” This led to the enrollment in the world famous Royal Conservatory of Music in her hometown of Toronto for vocal lessons. Next came songwriting which is an integral part of the Ventresca package.

“I wanted to write my own songs because I believe I have something to say and share that is uniquely me and will speak to the audience I’m trying to reach. It’s very important to me.”
