The final mega rehearsal was over and I’ve got to say I was impressed by what all our strummers, singers and band have managed this year. The set list is overflowing with feel-good songs that will have everyone present on their feet. Really looking forward to this year’s edition! The team has made an effort to make this year’s edition an extra special one to celebrate 15 years of Strummin’!
Tonight we are back at Sir Temi Zammit Hall to continue in our preparations. Tonight is all about technicalities. The lights will need to be tested and adjusted, the band will be setting up all the equipment on stage and getting a lengthy sound check. It is a task which will inevitably involve hours of work but it is obviously necessary to obtain good quality sound on the nights of the performances. We are lucky that our sound engineer, Jon Vella from The Sound System is well accustomed with Strummin’ and is the first one to lighten things up and calm the nerves when things get tricky. As long as we keep his coffee intake regular, I’m sure we’ll have no problems! 🙂
The strummers have a day off this evening. It will be a good occasion to re-charge the battery for the coming two days of preparations before the big night! The next two days will be a bit strenuous for all involved so a good rest is welcome.
Besides the technical preparations other matters will need to be addressed this evening. The sorting of the Strummin t-shirts has already started thanks to some of our committee members and volunteers. Tomorrow these will be handed out. Putting that t-shirt on will make everyone aware that the time is nigh!
Lots of work still needs to be done but we are one more step closer to Friday.
Today we have released a new lyric video for our song Lead The Way courtesy of two of our strummers, namely Siobhan Vassallo and Sarah Salafia . Check it out!
