Mo Brothas and Sistas from Toronto tech companies flooded The Phoenix Concert hall to raise money for the face of men’s health at the GTA Tech Leaders Concert Series.

Kings of Strachan kicked things off, and in true Intelex form, were eagerly welcomed by a crowd of blue.

Other bands featured were KPMG’s “Bucket List” and the event headliner “God Made Me Funky”
