Eurovision 2023: Malta’s First Rehearsal!

The second act that steps on the stage of the M&S Bank Arena for their first rehearsal are The Busker. The boy band is ready to represent Malta at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, after winning MESC 2023 with their song “Dance (Our Own Party)”!

Who are The Busker?

The Maltese indie pop band “The Busker” was formed in October 2012 and currently consists of David “Dav.Jr” Meilak, Jean Paul Borg and Sean Meachen. The group draws inspiration from 1960s pop bands such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys. They started posting covers and original music on YouTube. Their debut album, “Telegram”, was released in 2017, followed by “Ladies and Gentlemen” the following year. After winning MESC 2023, they are set to represent the island nation at Eurovision 2023.

The rehearsal

This is a funretro funk/pop performance, with an epic sax hook. Staging-wise, The Busker have brought quite a few props, with a four-part set that includes a party house (featuring the Destiny cardboard cutout), a yellow park bench and a lamppost, a red car and a tiny room with a sofa. The band dance between each part of the set, and it’s a clever visual storytelling in 3 acts.

The act features an outfit-change, as the chunky sweaters are swapped out for silver sequins for the final chorus.
