Apart from appearing in just about every club in the Toronto area (House of Hambourg, Cellar, 1st Floor, Towne Tavern, Colonial Tavern, Top O’ the Senator, Montreal Bistro, George’s Spaghetti House, Bourbon Street…just to name a few), he has also traveled all over the world with various artists, appearing in Birdland, New York, The Blue Note in Chicago, Baker’s Keyboard Lounge in Detroit, Festivals in Europe, and tours in Egypt, Nigeria, Scotland, Ireland, Antigua, and many other locations too numerous to mention.

Archie practically gave up playing for a short time to become a co-owner of a remarkable soul food restaurant in the 70’s (The Underground Railroad), but soon came back to his first love – music – and began to appear on Television with other jazz artists. This led to some acting roles and eventually producing some shows.

He was both a player and consultant in a 1994 video documentary, “It Ain’t All Jazz” produced by Inner City Films and co-produced by JoJo Chinto and featuring three of Canada’s most prolific Afro Canadian musicians: Wray Downes, Sonny Greenwich, and Archie Alleyne.
