Virgil Scott has earned his living entertaining in Canada for over 50 years – “How many people can say that?” he says with a smile.
His entertainment career began in 1968 with his neighbourhood band, “The Innocence Of Virgil Scott”.  His natural talent soon found recognition, Virgil was opening for major Canadian recording acts across Southern Ontario.  During the same period, he spent two years in the Music Program at Humber College, as well as private vocal lessons under the mentorship of world renowned Rosemary Burns.
The resurgence of Motown and Rhythm & Blues in the 80’s propelled Virgil’s career, as he became a mainstay headliner at nightclubs and casinos across Canada and the United States, and to this day enjoys an extensive following.
Virgil, moreover, has enjoyed an impressive theatrical career, appearing in such productions as Bye Bye Birdie, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and the Toronto production of Hair.
You may recognize his voice from various jingles throughout the years, such as Hostess Chips, Diamond Cheese, Molson, Labatt’s, The Bay, and Sears.  In addition to his musical endeavours, Virgil is also a member of the Child Find organization, and has recently received official recognition as the authorized musical spokesperson for Child Find Ontario.  This is an honour he takes seriously, hosting benefit concerts throughout the province year round.
The past eight years has found Virgil in the recording studio almost as much as on stage. Either with vocals on numerous CDs for other people, or producing several CD’s,  and was honoured to be a contributing Executive Producer on the CD  “AURORA”  for David Clayton Thomas.
