Anything on MTV and that’s played in clubs
Which band/artist/concert/festival would you most want to watch live?

Brikkuni, they managed to make 2 great albums of music that shouldn’t sell.

2010, helping out front of house. Last year Strummin’ X was the first one I actually played in and it was an amazing experience 🙂
How did you get to know about Strummin’?
Being friends with Joseph Axiak and Luke Grech it’s difficult not to know about Strummin’ 🙂

What are you waiting for?! Get into the family and enjoy every second of it!
