Check out the LUPB playing for the TFO (Télévision Franco-Ontarien) program JAM!  The young man with the guitar is being challenged to write music about the wind (the topic he drew from the bowl).  The LUBP then enters to distract the poor musician.  This was filmed May, 2014 however was only released earlier this year.  You can watch the whole episode, en français, here.
