The MacIsaac Agency is a Halifax based artist booking agency representing emerging and international touring artists from a diverse variety of musical genres. Founded by musician and Music Nova Scotia award winning agent Jason MacIsaac, the agency was formed in 2006 as JJ Bookings and renamed in early 2015.
Beginning as an outlet to book bands Jason performed in, the company evolved into a booking service for artists looking to tour on the East Coast of Canada. Past shows and tours were booked for artists such as The Mahones, Sean Ashby (guitarist for Sarah McLachlan), The Ascot Royals, The Dreadnoughts, X-Prime and former Arkells Keyboardist Dan Griffin to name a few. While still offering the service of tour booking for other artists, the agency developed a full time artist roster and now is home to some of the top acts from the East Coast of Canada, developing acts from both Canada and the U.S. and has been a strong part in the career development of past roster clients such as Gloryhound, The Stogies and Jay Smith (former guitarist for Matt Mays).
Nominated five years consecutively as "Booking Agent Of The Year" at Nova Scotia Music Week, Jason received industry recognition, winning the award in 2012, 2013 2015 and 2016 and has developed a strong roster of stand out and multiple award winning acts such as The Stanfields, The Town Heroes, Like a MOTORCYCLE DYlan menzie and Rawlins Cross
