The 2nd annual edition of the C2MTL conference that explores the relationship between commerce and creativity, and its potential to redefine business, is taking place from May 21st to May 23rd in Montreal, Canada and Chuck Comeau from Simple Plan will be a part of it!
Chuck will be present on the first day of this event, on May 21st, to speak at a panel entitled “The Beat Goes On” that starts at 4:45pm. See the excerpt from the released guide to C2MTL 2013 below to check out what this panel will be about:
Music industry veterans offer insight into how both bands and C-suiters are adapting to a playing field radically altered by advancements in technology and how consumers experience music. The conversation will be led by Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image, and will look into how business models have evolved and the central role of digital content platforms, direct-to-fan initiatives, and the increasing need for a strong brand experience. Panelists include Charles “Chuck” Comeau, drummer for longstanding Montreal pop-punk band Simple Plan, J. Erving, President and CEO of J.E.G., and Francois-Charles Sirois, President and CEO of Telesystem, a local leader in the development of media and technology start-ups.
And here’s a little trailer video for this year’s C2MTL conference:

Simple Plan a part of JUNO exhibition: The Power of Music: Sustainability & the JUNOS
After the featuring of Simple Plan in the From Sound To Emotion exhibition in Montreal, Canada (that has recently ended), the band is now a part of another exposition – this time in Regina, Canada where this year’s JUNO Awards take place and in preparation for the big event, as always the organisers have set up various attractions including the exhibition entitled “The Power of Music: Sustainability & the JUNOS”.
This exhibition, that is open for free from March 28th till July 31st at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Regina, Canada, allows the visitors to learn more about how powerful music can be – it features four interactive listening and learning stations, each dedicated to a different sustainability theme and featuring many JUNO nominated Canadian artists and information about their own efforts. These artists include mainly Bruce Cockburn, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Neil Young, and Sarah Harmer and additionally many other artists that are involved with charity – including Simple Plan (as you can see on the picture from the exhibit on the left – or its original here).
After their return from Japan, Simple Plan had a week to recover from the jet lag because they already have some events scheduled for this coming Saturday and Sunday. Check them out below:
On Saturday, April 13th, the closing ceremony of the Ma Zone D “On Stage with Simple Plan and Desjardins” contest will take place at 7pm at the Telus Theatre in Montreal, Canada. During the event, the grand prize winner of the contest that has been chosen by the representatives of Desjardins and the members of Simple Plan will be announced and SP will also perform at this event.
Although Simple Plan did not turn their nomination for Song Of The Year with Summer Paradise into a win (Carly Rae Jepsen took this award home instead for “Call Me Maybe”) at this year’s Canadian Radio Music Awards, one of the members of Simple Plan did win last night… in a way.
A group of Canadian musicians, who called themselves Artist Against, won the Heatseeker Award for Special Collaboration for their rendition of Cyndi Laupner’s song “True Colors”. And you may recall that Pierre Bouvier was a part of this collaboration as well! So congratultaions, Pierre!
The Canadian Music Week still continues and we still have some Simple Plan action ahead! Today, Chuck will be speaking at two panels there and later in the evening, the rest of the band will also arrive to Toronto (where CMW is being held) and they will be awarded with the Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award tonight for their charitable efforts with Simple Plan Foundation.
