Stay at home with the cats... or act on stage. My lifelong dilemma.

Dum Dum Dum Dumdum Dum DUM!

*Title to be sung to the opening riff of 'Smoke on the Water'*

Yesterday was the much-awaiting event (for a few people anyway!) of the gig at Labyrinth of the band 'The Plenaries', formerly known as '70's band 'Smog' - they re-named themselves to be more environmentally friendly!

The Pea and I had been invited to be the backing vocalists of this band, through Edward Mercieca who is the bass player and one of the vocalists, a mere week before yesterday's performance so, one and a half rehearsals later (by Pea and me, not the band - they had been rehearsing since last November), we were a bit nervisssssss about the outcome.

But we really needn't have worried! The band played absolutely marvellously, and Pea and I didn't suck hehehehe - in fact, loads of people came to tell us we sounded great! The sizeable crowd was fantastic, made out of cronies, family and friends. They were all clapping, screaming, singing, jumping up and down and basically having a really great time especially during songs like 'Mony Mony', 'Come Together' and, of course, 'Smoke on the Water'. In short, it was a blast! Even a couple of professional musicians said the band was great!

For a detailed account of the gig from one of the lovely members of the audience, go to Maltagirl's website - she even has a short video clip... tres cool!

And, by the way, yesterday's gig was also the venue for a historic first-time meeting between Maltagirl and UK-based blogger Toni Sant who flew down to Malta just to see the band (he didn't really!) It was really nice seeing him after all these years!

Anyway, it was a fantastic evening and, hopefully, one which will be repeated sometime soon!

    It was great to see you again! I'm also glad I got to meet your number 1 fan (at last!) and all those old friends I hadn't seen in years.
