Production week- day 3 .Lights, sound, action!

Things are slowly taking shape. The band’s sound check has taken place late on Tuesday night. It is now time for the Strummers and the singers to take to the stage.

Tonight the Strummin Let’s Dance t-shirts will be handed out. All sizes are sorted and the strummers’ list double checked. The amount of enthusiasm that this part of the preparation generates is amazing! This year we have also added an extra t-shirt with a different design as part of our merchandise list and it has already proven to be popular among the crew. All t shirt designs as well as all the design work related to this year’s edition of Strummin was entrusted to Jean Claude Vancell. Jean is a regular to Strummin and he is always ready to help in any way he can.

Apart from the sound check, other matters will need to be sorted out tonight as well. Planning the layout of the merchandise stands, going through the guests’ list and many other small details that will ultimately help to make this edition another success J

Tonight is the night when things will start to feel real! We are itching to go!

It’s time for #Change

Friday 7th arrived and I can confirm that the Strummin’ for Change technical and general rehearsals were a blast for both guitarists, band and singers. The organisers kept running around, putting the finishing touches on so many things, whilst trying to enjoy the show… ah, it’s ok, they’ll be more relaxed tomorrow when it’s all over!

The cast were handed their t-shirts and people picked up the latest merchandise which will be available for sale during the concerts. The singers are already sipping a concoction of warm honey and lemon from their new travel-mugs.

The show is shaping up nicely with Matt Bonanno at the helm this year taking up hosting duties. The guitarists are warming up to reach the dreaded C# and Eb chords, eager to perform well in front of the large audience. The singers are carrying the show brilliantly, and the surprise ending is, well, a heart-warming surprise for you all.

We look forward to welcoming you in a few hours’ time at Sir Temi Zammit Hall today and tomorrow for a musical revolution.

Tickets will be available at the door. Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis, and great music is guaranteed 🙂


#strumminforchange run-through in progress 🙂
