"Performing my instrumentals live was something that I never though would happen, so when I decided to do a show I really went all out with production and decided to record the show. I worked on a good blend of covers to mix in with my instrumentals to create an entertaining show to cater for everyone, it was an amazing night that I'll never forget and now I can share it with the world to show them what " Luke Stamenkovich" show is like. This album is a celebration of music and the love for playing music live" - Luke Stamenkovich
