The Tal­bot & Bons 60-hour live mu­sic marathon – sec­ond edi­tion

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Af­ter the suc­cess of the first edi­tion of the Tal­bot & Bons Live Mu­sic Marathon, Tal­bot & Bons have once again teamed up with En­ter­tain­ment.com.mt to bring you the sec­ond edi­tion of this marathon, this year with 60 hours of non-stop live mu­sic. This week­end will fea­ture 60 acts, span­ning all hours be­tween Fri­day, 21 Oc­to­ber, kick­ing off at noon and end­ing the fol­low­ing Sun­day at mid­night.

Mu­sic gen­res will cover a wide spec­trum, from soft acous­tic duos, to jazz bands, soft rock bands and more. The team is cur­rently fi­nal­is­ing the sched­ule so artists who would like to per­form dur­ing the marathon are en­cour­aged to con­tact Chris­tian Borg or Stephanie Camil­leri by send­ing an e-mail on info@en­ter­tain­ment.com.mt.

Big names are al­ready on board, among them Pamela Bezzina, Clau­dia Faniello, Na­dine Ax­isa, Rachel Fabri, San­d­rina & Keith from Skar­let, Gian­luca Bezzina, Dom­nic Galea, Paul Giordi­maina and Vinny Vella Jr.

Yes it’s fun, but it’s not only that; it’s for a good cause. This time th­ese mu­si­cians will be col­lect­ing funds for chil­dren and youths who have mu­sic po­ten­tial, yet lack the re­sources, for some rea­son or other, to at­tend high end mas­ter classes and work­shops.

Amy, Stephanie, Chris­tian and Alan, who are the or­gan­is­ers of this marathon, hope that by giv­ing th­ese chil­dren this chance, they will be mak­ing their dream come true. It is an ini­tia­tive en­abling mu­si­cians and those in­volved in the mu­sic in­dus­try to give an op­por­tu­nity to as­pir­ing young artists to be ex­posed to more fo­cused tu­ition in their area.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are avail­able so that an eval­u­a­tion process can be started and, de­pend­ing on the sum col­lected, a num­ber of chil­dren will be iden­ti­fied to ben­e­fit from this op­por­tu­nity. Th­ese chil­dren are also be­ing asked to name their favourite lo­cal artist so that they will be able to meet them dur­ing the marathon.

Ap­pli­ca­tions can ei­ther be down­loaded from www.en­ter­tain­ment.com.mt/ap­pli­ca­tion; col­lected from var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions (a list of which can be found on the above web­site) and or from Tal­bot & Bons, SkyParks Busi­ness Cen­tre, Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Prepa­ra­tions are in full swing to en­sure that it will be an­other suc­cess­ful Live Mu­sic Marathon, such that Tal­bot & Bons pa­trons can have a good time while help­ing those in need.
