Glenn Parfitt

Instruments: Violin details
Glenn Parfitt is a third generation Victoria native. Growing up in a musical family, Glenn was expected to learn and play a musical instrument along with singing in key. At an early age, it was determined that these skills had skipped a generation as Glenn's musical abilities never developed but his love of music was highly developed. In February of 1977, his journey through the business of music began first as a manager, then agent, promoter, club manager, and a career in radio. During 2000, he suffered a heart attack and once recuperated, decided to create the Royal City Music Project in 2002 as a platform for musicians to showcase their musical accomplishments. He was joined by Ross Damude, Ken Sherwoood and in 2006, Nev Gibson of the Indivision Network. In January of 2022 they launched the fourth website and are currently visited by as many 380,000 unique visitors monthly generating over 1,800,000 hits from 83,000 + pages of information. Glenn currently spends his spare time volunteering for local music and historical organizations. February 2022.
