Meet Justin de Graaf

Originally from Toronto. CA, Justin has spent his life as a citizen of the stage.At age seventeen he knew the only home for him was on the road, so he packed his bags and never looked back. 

Now Justin has spent over twenty years playing venues across the world for chart-topping artists. In 2018, he finally settled in Nashville where he plays for the Australian duo Seaforth, Canadian Country Artist/Songland TV winner Madeline Merlo and many more. 

Two years ago, Justin founded Party Down Live Entertainment (as seen here), a live event entertainment company that prioritizes musicians over profit and quality over quantity. In those two years, Party Down has played events all over the country as well as internationally. 

Now with the expansion of Only Bands, Justin is keeping that same mission alive with the intent to provide a bigger impact on the community and bigger benefits to more artists.

...

When planning his own wedding here in Music City, Justin was shocked to see just how expensive a generic wedding/corporate event band could be - especially knowing first hand that the musicians were not the ones seeing most of that money. It's no secret that the music industry has made a habit out of exploiting musicians with unfair wages and excusing it under the premise of "exposure" or "the nature of the beast."

 

This inspired Justin to use his experience and connections in the industry to make a difference. That is when he founded Party Down Live Entertainment, a company committed to paying musicians a generous rate while delivering high quality entertainment to Nashville's private event sector. With the expansion of Only Bands, Justin's goal is to uplift artists and musicians and create a supportive community that seeks to make a positive impact on an industry that often lacks respect for the musicians it is built upon. In blending passion for music and love for the community of Nashville, it has led to the creation of a company whose mission is to get back to the root of what Music City is all about - music.
