Tonight's Whale Guitar Show Features

Gregory Taylor of Ocean Alliance!

BURNSIDE INSIDE :: Wintersession Burnside Music Series

Aurora January 21 4:30pm - 7pm

Every Thursday in January the breezy Burnside Park Music Series of summer moves inside for the winter freeze!

With music, a full bar, a featured brew and BBQ inpired snacks to help you unwind after work and thaw out from the chill!

Tonight is Whale Guitar Night with special guest players!

Come in and hear guitarist and Ocean Alliance’s Environmental Science Intern Gregory Taylor!

Greg will play for you and chat about the science of using drones to study whales!

He'll even have a drone with him to show you! These drones allow Ocean Alliance to conduct the most non-invasive research possible as they gather the evidence needed to fight for whale health!

After Greg, Aurora’s own Stev Delmonico and his bandmate Steve Donovan will play the guitar, fresh from The Quahog's CD Release Party!

Last but not least, BlowHole's Brian Jablonski evokes an ocean on pedal steel while Berke Marye takes The Whale Guitar on a journey of sound.

Visit The Whale Guitar table where we will have lots of images from the Dinosaur Jr. 30th Anniversary Shows! Check out the photos of people who have played and signed the guitar!

We even have some activities

for kids!

We hope you will supprt our cause - please consider making a donation to Ocean Alliance while you visit to keep their great work going!

And to support the costs of The Whale Guitar Project, we have beautiful Whale Guitar tees and totes! 100% organic cotton - so no pesticides leach into the seas!

We even have some sweet

kids sizes in ocean blue!

Wear you whale love!

See you tonight!
