For the first profile, Leslie and Webber sat down with David Schellenberg, talent buyer at Union Sound Hall and bassist with Les Jupes, to talk about his role with the new club, why he wants to change the way bands tour North America and how he found a home within Winnipeg's tight-knit music community.
