After a week of hard work from our mixed bands and coaches (you can read about the training week here), we can proudly say that the closing concert at Hamam Jazz Bar in Pristina, on June 17th, was a great success! After traveling safely from Mitrovica, our teachers set up the stage, after which our bands did a tone rehearsal, with the help of Ruud Borgers.
The bus for the friends and families, which was also organized, arrived at about 8 PM, and the gig officially started at about 9 PM. Our long-time member of the Rock School, teacher and project coordinator Emir Hasani opened the event with a short speech, where he also announced the donation box for anyone who would like to support our cause, as well as the free CDs that include a complilation of our bands’ studio recorded songs, that the visitors could take for free.
Afterwards, Emir announced the first and our newest band Rootless to open the gig. Check the photos below of all our bands on stage (thanks to Goran Jolovic):
The crowd was very supporting of all our bands, especially towards the end when they all danced and jumped in front of the stage, asking for encore and giving our bands more of the positive energy and a great atmosphere for everyone there.
This was definitely one of the most succesful events of our Rock School and we thank everyone for supporting us and helping us connect and make peace with music!
