Alethea BrownThe A-May-Zing live music extravaganza was held on Saturday 18 May at Carvoeiro Tennis Club and was generously supported by the many musicians who performed and by all those who participated by attending and buying raffle tickets on the night. The event was sold out!

Associação Obrigado Bombeiros would like to thank musicians Murphy and Friends, Meadowsweet, New Moon, The Evidence, Althea Brown, Ivan and Company and Tomé Band & Beto Kalulu, and event sponsors Carvoeiro Clube de Tenis, Dos Santos, Flyboard Experience,  Hexagone Restaurant, Harrys Bar, Smilers Bar and Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream, without whose support the evening would not have been possible.

The EvidenceThe event coordinator Jackie Meadows commented: “It was a truly A-May-Zing evening where everyone joined in, dancing to great music and enjoying excellent food in a vibrant party atmosphere.” She continued: “One of the high spots of the evening was the arrival of Silves Bombeiros with their newly purchased fire truck. It was wonderful for our supporters to be able to view the truck they had helped to purchase, sit inside it and talk to the fire fighters.
