Steve balances music with other diversions like skiing, sailing, travel, food, wine and the pimped out vintage Vespa he gets around on when it's nice out.



Decades of experience ensure the success
of our engagement.


UKOPOLIS was established by Steve McNie whose strengths include business oversight, presentation, performance, teaching, organization, and community building. He managed multi-platinum family entertainers Sharon, Lois & Bram for 7 years and worked in various marketing capacities for CTV, CBC, PolyGram, A&M Records, Walt Disney Home Video, Warner Music, Canada Systems Group and GRT.

Steve taught advertising and sales promotion at Sheridan College and digital media at Centennial College. As a digital media sales executive at CTV and prior at the CBC, Steve has presented often to a variety of the world's top-tier brands and their agencies. Current teaching includes group and private instruction for all ages.

It is to the cello (University of Toronto and Royal Conservatory of Music) and mentor Daniel Domb that Steve owes much of his sense for music. He is a founding member of the Corktown Chamber Orchestra, plays bass, accordion, banjo, melodica and cello in The McFlies and produces Toronto's popular Corktown Ukulele Jam.
