Live DVD + CD - Champion et ses G-Strings
Brian Tracy, a Canadian–born motivational speaker is quoted as saying, "All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, goal or purpose." In Brian Tracy’s book, Maxime Morin would be worthy of his stage name, DJ Champion, because he had the courage to dream big … really big! He always wanted to mix musicians the way other DJs mix vinyl. Recently at the Montreal Jazz Festival he got his wish, and carried out the experiment on a grand scale, bringing four guitarists, a battery of samba drummers, a gospel choir and one DJ together on stage before an audience of thousands. Champion’s latest release includes a DVD documentary with some thrilling concert footage from his date at the Bell Centre, the home of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. In the documentary Morin explains that originally, the G-Strings were to be four female guitarists, but due to critical shortage of such in Montreal, he settled for guys instead. The arrangement with his building waves of beats, old tyme gospel melodies and the wall of sound from the electric axe quartet is nothing short of ecstatic!
