7 Years

“7 Trees” by Cornelia

An important number, mystical you could say. But on May 16th we didn’t really feel the need to celebrate. We went through quite a lot during the past seven years (our activity has been carefully recorded in the ‘About’ page of this site) but our main goals haven’t been achieved.

Since the beginning, seven years ago, our agenda never changed, the main goals are still the same:

  • to have a good influence on other kids so they choose good music as opposed to most of the mainstream – a big zero
  • to promote the “good rock” – sincere, rebel, strong and heart-felt – as opposed to “evil-rock” and “frivolous-rock” – one, maybe
  • to promote the medieval music as an alternative in music education – one (?)

On a scale of 0-10 we estimate getting only 1 (-;
It almost looks that there are huge evil forces out there and we have no chance to push our agenda, in spite of all the efforts and sporadic successes.

But it’s fine, because we will keep working.

And we are confident of our band’s strength. A proof: recently we learned and played 14 new covers!! First we released 4 acoustic versions (Cream, Stranglers, Beatles, Rammstein), then we prepared and played, for a party gig, 4 more new covers (Beatles, DC5, Bowie, and Mamas & Papas). One week later, in only a few hours, two more covers (James Brown, Stevie Wonder) for a triple performance at IKEA. And finally, the last gig at a birthday party, where we added four new covers (Beatles and Dire Straits) prepared in one day only (!). And all this besides doing school and other activities… This is quite an accomplishment! We’re proud of it and it gives us hope.

So here is our three latest appearances in public. First a short gig of 10 songs played for a private party at the ‘Hidden Club’ in Bucharest.

Then one of the triple performances on June 2nd, at IKEA, along with the theater team Teatropolis Junior

And the last gig at a private party in Sabri Park (Berceni – Bucharest):

Thanks for watching!
