Winter Blues
Filmed at the Town Hall, Aurora, Ontario. This was a promotional appearance inside the Aurora Council chambers during the February 25th, 2014. It looked like it was endorsed by all the Council members. It was unbelievable how nice the saxophone sounded in the chambers. It amazing.

Aurora's Concerts
Yes, this is pretty much how Aurora's Concerts in the Park look like in motion every Wednesday night all summer. Performance clips by DESIRE The International U2 Tribute Act.
