Apart from contributing to a wonderful cause, I enjoyed discovering new bands and singers-songwriters 🤓!

Prince: Sign o’the Times live concert and DJ set

I hope you have celebrated well new year’s eve 🍾🎉! I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous new year 2017 😘🍀🌟🎊!

new-year-2017For my part, I decided to celebrate new year’s eve a little bit in advance 😂! I went to this tribute to Prince with DJ Al Murphy playing lots of Prince’s tunes and then watched the live recording of his 1987 Sign o’ the Times tour on Friday 30th December 2016 at The Sugar Club, Dublin (Ireland).

You can find more information about it in this  event page:

Here are recordings in picture and audio of the DJ’s act.

Now, I’d like to share with you some videos taken at the event. I would like to apologise if the last video’s soundtrack isn’t from Prince! I experienced few technical issues trying to publish a live YouTube video and it ended up recording the visuals without the sound 🤔😤!  So I picked a nice song in a similar style to add to the video 🙂😉. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy them!

Music Without Borders – live concerts (2016)

First of all, before I start talking about the event I attended and sharing with you videos, I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas ⛄️❄️!

The charity event in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) took place on Friday 23rd December 2016 at the beautiful and cozy Workman’s Club pub in Dublin (Ireland) 🔥. There was a fun and warm filled atmosphere to it and the live concerts were very good!

You will find Facebook and Periscope live videos on my fan page:

The music was varied. It started off with what I would call ‘ambiant music’ with Daniel McDermott playing at the keyboard and using other pre-recorded instrumental pieces. It continued on with a brand new Irish hip hop duet called ‘God Creative and Crimes Against’ and finished off with a folk and pop music band led by Conor O’Mally. Entry tickets and Conor O’Meally music CDs purchased by the audience went into the fundraising initiative for the charitable organisation.

Now, I’m sure you are dying to watch the Youtube videos, right 😜😉?! Here you go!
