In the City of Kelowna we may have asked them to move to a busk stop but the boys from Behind Sapphire achieved their goal. They performed for Ellen Degeneres! They came up with the concept, made a video, shared it on YouTube, and in the end reaped the success of a well crafted plan. By the looks of the video it also seems they also have a new fan! A testament to anyone with enough vision and commitment to implement a unique creative endeavour.
Update: BC Band busks for Ellen!

Behind Sapphire with Ellen.
For their original video Castanet viewers doubled their views and helped propel them on their way to perform for Ellen. Behind Sapphire took some time to share a "shout out" to the Castanet viewers for supporting their randomly brilliant ambitions in the music business.
Bonus: Ellen "video-bombs" (the distant cousin of the classic "photo bomb") the weather report at a regional TV show. Authentically Ellen!
