History

Joey Cee has been a figure in the Canadian music scene since his high school days. Starting weekly shows at the “Three Star Club Hall” in 1963, Cee introduced many up and coming Rock ‘n’ Roll and R&B artists to eager listeners. His success in being able to identify groovy new sounds also led his to become a CHUM-AM High School Picker around the same time. It is with this solid background in the music industry from such a young age that has led Cee to the many careers he’s held over the years.
From 1967-1969, Cee was Music Director at CKFH, which allowed him more control over what music hit the airways. His focus was always to bring more new content to Toronto that other stations might not pick up.
The 70’s was spent releasing multiple singles under different labels and pseudonyms. ‘Joseph’, ‘Artsy’, and ‘The Puppies’ where all names he has recorded music under. During this time he also publish multiple magazines and articles: Snowmobile Track & Trail Magazine, Anne Murray: Annie … A Point of View Magazine, Music Canada Quarterly/Flipside Magazine, Glitter Magazine, All About The Stampeders Magazine, Record Week Music Industry, Weekly Trade Magazine, Record Month Magazine, Record Week Music Industry, Weekly Trade Magazine, and many others. He slowly began to produce music as well, and began to focus more on that during the 80’s. The ‘Hot Spots Reports, Toronto CKFM’ led him to do similar programs for Montreal, New York, and Los Angeles. It then became a magazine, the longest gig Cee has done.
It is also in the late 80’s that Cee began to help produce festivals. Though he began this work producing pageants, he also worked on the ‘Beaches International Jazz Festival’. From there his career in festivals took off. The 90’s brought in many new opportunities. Cee became the regular producer and editor for HOToronto Magazine, and co-producer for the annual ‘New Country Music Festival – CISS-FM’.
Today, Cee continues to work in the entertainment industry, producing many chocolate festivals, and still publishing HOToronto online, now titled, WOW (What’s On Where) Magazine On-line.
