This wasn’t our first performance at Live@Via, Treana Morris kindly asked us back to perform for a second time so I already knew it would be a lovely place to sing with a good pa system and an attentive audience, which can be rare so I was looking forward to it. I really love this venue, it’s got something I can’t put my finger on, a warm, weathered feel, full of atmosphere. I’m sure if it’s very old raw brick walls could speak, they would have a thousand tales to tell.

Sometimes the smaller more intimate gigs are the most nerve racking and this was one of those but it went really well and we (purple Park Trio) had a great time and performed well. We did some jazz and contempary covers but we also tried out some of our original songs for the first time too and got some good feedback on the songs people liked.

Singer songwriter’s Treana Morris who runs the event and Sam Hart both did brilliant sets, and performing after us was Dana McKeon. This girl really is amazing to watch live, she’s a singer songwriter, guitarist & Malta’s international beatbox pioneer. She was also female finalist at the 2012 Beatbox World Championships. It’s quite inhuman what she is capable of doing with her vocal cords, incredible!
