LONDON MUSIC HALL OF FAME
The Forest City London Music Awards (FCLMA) curates Canada’s only city specific music hall of fame the, London Music Hall of Fame. Located adjacent to the London Music Hall in the old Nash Jewellers building on Dundas St, the Hall of Fame honours outstanding musicians from London, Ontario. Past inductees include Garth Hudson, Tommy Hunter, the Lombardo family, Denise Pelley, Sheep Look Up, Kittie and Don and Priscilla Wright. Having a place to showcase these individuals and groups provides an opportunity to share their recognition with the community and visitors to the city.
Displayed alongside profiles and bios of the inductees are musical treasures, such as Big Band era artifacts from Guy Lombardo’s Royal Canadians and road travel gear for Graham Lear drummer for Carlos Santana and much more.
“We have some cool stuff,” said Circelli. “This city has a deep and prestigious music history and we’ve got the proof right here on display. It’s really impressive and we’re very excited.”
Mike Manuel, owner of the London Music Hall and the Manuel family, is supporting this project. “The FCLMA has done so much for the music community of London, it’s a natural fit,” said Manuel.
The Hall features two live venues, The Rosewood Room and The LMA Ballroom. Live performance schedules will be posted on the events page as well as on the Hall Of Fame Facebook page.
