MCAST IICT student Dylan Vassallo, developed a website for Big Friends Guggen Musik Band Big Friends Guggen Musik Band was founded in 2008 on the personal initiative of Mr Saviour Spiteri. The word ‘Guggen’ is of German descent and means joyful music. The style of this band is unique for our country because the musicians of the band entertain audiences by playing, singing and dancing. The band is mainly divided into two sections; the brass section and the percussion section. The brass section includes trumpets, trombones, euphoniums, althorns and sousaphones. The percussion section consists of tambourines, temple blocks, castanets and sleigh bells, washboards, bell liras, base drums and cymbals, and finally the drum kits. Moreover some instruments such as ‘washboards’, ‘sousaphones’ and temple blocks, are innovative and unique and are not found in traditional Maltese village bands.
