The Burnaby Now published an article about a wee boy who took guitar lessons at a little music shop in Burnaby so he could learn all the Beatles songs he could.
"Morris took guitar lessons at a small guitar shop in Burnaby to learn as many Beatles songs as he could. "Now I get to play this music at a beautiful theatre and for some of the best burlesque artists in town," he said."
We've now been covered in three local papers: The Surrey Now, the Burnaby Now, and the New Westminster Newsleader!
