I’ve always wanted to play the organ at a Vancouver Canucks game. And when I go to watch the Canucks play at Rogers Arena, I like to take in the sights and sounds of the entire arena experience – and not just the game itself.
As a musician, I pay particular attention to the music: both from the DJ and from the organ. And I’ve come up with a medley of songs that I typically hear at Canucks games.
