Jessie MacGregor ran the premier entertainment business in town that had a reputation across Ontario during the 1930s and 1940s.

She encountered many musical acts through her studies and connections and she decided to start a business bringing those acts to Caledonia

She was an agent who had a reputation for finding the best acts for the best prices for any occasion one could desire.

She herself was no small talent, getting rave reviews wherever she performed.
