Their performance was beyond all expectations. The dance floor was always packed. Even the staff behind the bar couldn’t stand still. Their well thought out playlist ensured that each song blended perfectly into the next. Thank you Dance Commander for making my party a huge success.

We booked them for our corporate annual Christmas party, held in one of Lac Leamy’s banquet halls. The music selection was fantastic and kept everyone dancing until the very end of the evening. We look forward to having them join us again next year!
— Don - General manager, Signiant Inc.
After their awesome performance in 2016, we booked Dance Commander to return in May of 2017 to play the main stage outside City Hall, part of our Celebration Concert Series during Race Weekend. Dance Commander’s high energy set was a perfect way for runners and to celebrate crossing the half-marathon and marathon finish lines.

Past Shows

We've rocked some serious venues, from tiny pubs to the entire downtown core. Private parties, weddings, any night of the week, you will be getting up out of your seat and making sick moves. No room is too small, no hall is too big for our perfectly sized funk. Here's just a few:



The british pub

The people at The british pub know how to party! - The food and drinks were amazing, everyone was friendly and all had a great time rocking to our tunes! We're looking forward to another amazing gig in this beautiful venue in the heart of this super charming town called Aylmer.


D'acrcy McGee's

we had a blast from start to finish, playing great dance tunes to a full dance floor all night. We look forward to returning to this amazing pub. 

good drinks, good food ,good people.


blackburn arms

The locals in Blackburn Hamlet really knew how to bust a move - after we rocked a Friday night to the early light, many came back for Saturday delights. We're looking forward to another double header coming up soon.


Buster's Bar and grill

If you're out at Lincoln Fields and notice the building is falling apart, we apologize - we dropped the beat so hard at Buster's we damn near wrecked the place. Get up for the down stroke next time we're back at this fabulous west end pub.


Race weekend

What could make you want to move your feet one more step after you've run a marathon? Dance Commander and the Electric Goddamn F-Bomb, that's what. We kept the downtown core stayin' alive on the main Celebration Stage, with disco grooves echoing off city hall and all the way down Sparks Street.


Hurley's Grill 

Nice venue! We had tons of fun playing in that nice spot in Kanata. Food and drinks were good, nice atmosphere and nice poeple! 


The happy goat coffee co.

Great times at the happy Goat! We played for a private party and people grooved all night long, from the first chords to the last note!


Always happy to make it groove, espacially for a good cause!


Various wedding gigs
