Gozitan Band Divine Sinners perform at charity rock concert
|Email item||Print item||
Last Sunday, Gozitan band Divine Sinners gave a very lively performance at the Powerhouse at the Valletta Waterfront in the event, ‘Martial Arts vrs Rock Bands in aid of Puttinu Cares.’
Proceeds from the event are going to the Puttinu Cares Foundation which gives help to children with cancer and their families, who, at some time may need to go for medical attention abroad but do not have the financial means to do so. The aim of the evening was to see whether it was the Martial Arts or the Rock Bands which could collect the most money for the aforementioned Puttinu Cares Foundation. There were fifteen rock bands which took part in the event.
Consisting of Charles J. Attard, Frank Buhagiar, Eugene Bajada and Marvic Vella, Goztian band Divine Sinners played a half hour set of all original material, with the songs written by Charles Attard and Frank Buhagiar. The group said that “they managed to liven up the place and got members of the audience dancing to their music and laughing at their jokes between songs.” At one time they were joined onstage by Steve Farrugia, lead singer of one of the best Maltese bands of the moment, Dry Connections, to play the original Divine Sinners song “Another Lonely Christmas.” This was done in good humour with all onstage wearing Santa hoods in late January!
Cheers and applauses from the band’s Gozitan followers roared in the Powerhouse when Charles J. Attard asked the hall, “Are there any Gozitans here?” Among the other songs Divine Sinners played were “Cactus Rose,” “Bye, Bye Napoleon” and “Spanking the Monkey” all of which can be checked out on their YouTube channel. Divine Sinners can also be found on facebook.
