AHA MEDIA is proud to present Sean Winter!

January 18, 2009 Leave a comment

AHA MEDIA met Sean Winter again and now that we have our site, we’re pleased and proud to present Sean Winter to our online audience.

Sean is a young saxophone player extraordinare!!  He resides in our neighborhood and is a welcome and friendly presence in the area. You may have heard him play a variety of styles of songs in Gastown, usually situated by the restaurant Chill Winston and the Gassy Jack statue. 

Sean is a busy man but still makes time to play for the folks on the street. He is a rare type of musician that still engages with the public  to help enliven and contribute positively to our area  ! 

 AHA MEDIA  believes he’s going to be a fantastic  success in his life and if you have a chance, stop by in Gastown and listen to him play 🙂

 AHA MEDIA supports  the arts and LIVE instrumental music especially our local talent!
