More live music for Mount Alvernia residents

The elderly residents of Mount Alvernia enjoyed another live performance by local performers on Wednesday evening.

Bob and the Boys, comprising Bob Randall, Danny Chipolina, Ernest Slade and Kayron Pozo, played to the residents who are in their sixth week of Covid-19 lockdown.

“We are expanding our repertoire, we will be doing some Beatles, some Spanish oldies, some Albert Hammond, sixties, sing-a-longs, Tom Jones,” said Mr Randall.

“I am always adding. I keep some of what I do as a standard and then add 50 percent different songs,” said Mr Randall.

The band played for residents of Hillside and Bella Vista recently and are set to entertain the residents of Albert Risso House this Friday at 6pm.

When asked what inspires them to play for these audiences, Mr Randall simply said, “we love music and we do it for the people.”

“We have never played together before this, but this is it, we are inspired because we love music, we love interacting, we are all friends and we feel that this is what we can offer and give something.”

“Which is a good feeling too and primarily we do it because we want to do it for the people,” he said.

The idea to provide entertainment to residents is the brainchild of Isobel Ellul from the GHA, who contacted the Musicians Association of Gibraltar to see what could be arranged.

Steven Noni Belilo from the Musicians Association of Gibraltar is organising these events.
