    On Saturday, June 8th 2015 our headlining performers were Desire-International U2 Tribute. As a musician and production person, I can be awfully picky about what I consider a quality show. I want to take this opportunity to say that we had a lot of great music at this year's Ribs and Brews, but Desire delivered the best performance we have ever had. Desire brings to the stage a unique combination of showmanship and style that is rooted in a detailed and concrete grasp of the musical intricacies behind U2. Desire is the total package. They have built a show upon a bedrock of musicianship and appreciation for a band that has global appeal and have shaped it into a performance that is as close to the real thing without being a fake knock off - that is an astounding achievement and I sat at the side of the stage in awe. One of the perks of being stage manager is that I can literally sit on the stage behind and amp and see that Larry, Clayton, The Edge and Bono are there in front of me. I have not seen a tribute band do that until now. Finally, I want to point out that I would not have written this positive review if these musicians were not a pleasure to deal with. They are consummate professionals. So if you are a producer or event planner, you need not worry; they will be on time, ready, and they will perform their asses off. If you want to know more please email me at acquiese@gmail.com or call me 289-688-1405 and I would be glad to answer any questions about my positive Desire experience Sincerely, Jesse Parsons Professor at Durham College Ribs and Brews MC and Stage Manager

    As the entertainment organizer for the Mississauga Waterfront Festival.I knew I had to bring something special to the stage, that would make people feel like they were attending a real live concert. When I saw these guys perform a year ago - I knew they were it! From the look, to the inflections, down to the music - it was like I was watching the real “U2” band. If I can describe “Desire" in one word it would be “Spectacular!” These guys were professional from beginning to end. As I looked into the crowd on Saturday night from back stage I saw people smiling and singing along! They truly were reliving a special time in their life. Don’t stop doing what you’re doing - you make a lot of people happy! Continued success!

    Thank you Desire for an AMAZING night at Calistoga Grill last night. I have been a U2 fan since their early years, I have attended their many shows here in Canada and the U.S. and I must say you were able to capture the "essence" of the band! Your dedication to giving your fans the "U2 experience" is truly commendable! Until next time ....rock on and God bless

    Being a die hard U2 fan, I'm quite picky when it comes to a tribute act putting on the real deal. I first saw Desire at the Jordan Wine Festival with some friends a few years ago and we were simply blown away by the quality of the show!! Since then my friends and I have seen multiple shows and have a blast at each one! On July 18, I married my wife Sonja. With my wife and close friends also being die hard fans, we decided to ask Desire to play for our wedding. Our reception hall had a stage so we figured it was the perfect setup. We worked with Desire over a few months to work their show into our big night tweaking the setlist, flow of the show, etc. Simply put, DESIRE made our night!! They put on a top notch show that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We've received countless compliments of how awesome Desire was and what an amazing job they did with every tune. The look, feel, and energy of the show is a perfect replica is what U2 has to offer! Working with Desire was an absolute breeze. What an awesome bunch of guys to work with who you can tell really love what they do! The guitars, bass, amps, drums, and playing style are exactly the same as U2 which makes the show just that much more authentic. Thanks DESIRE, for playing at our wedding! You made it a night everyone at the wedding will never forget!!!

    Saw Desire for the first time last night @Obsession Live Lounge and was blown away! I have never been able to see U2 so this was fantastic to be able to experience the music up close! Will definitely see that again.
