Acoustic Blend Café is an organization hosting monthly acoustic music concerts that have been operating on a not-for-profit basis in the Hamilton area since 2009. Their goal is to provide an affordable venue for progressing and emerging talent to perform, and to broaden the Canadian music scene in a culture that is seeing live music venues steadily closing. They focus on building community by supporting local Canadian talent and business, offering advertising space in brochures, featuring their products during the performances, as well as promoting them during the show through between-act announcements.
