Night out in Malawi

The night after I arrived in Malawi, my daughter told me we were going out for a meal where Jon my son in law was playing in a band called Rusty Nails.  I had never heard this band and was very pleasantly surprised that they played 60’s, 70’s and 80’s music. Below is a photograph of us and other volunteers who all work at the Cure international Hospital.  The food, company, atmosphere and music were excellent.  Judith is on the front right and I am on the front left.

Now I had never seen such a good use of Coca - Cola bottles.  
These bottles were made into this chandelier seen below.

Jon is on the left and plays the bass guitar and he works as a Biomedical Engineer and the other two men are teachers while the lady at the back is a very talented musician and a Paediatrician and the female vocalist is an Paediatric surgeon.  Not sure what the drummer does.  My grandson, Daniel with be given a number to play with Rusty Nails as a drummer tomorrow when Jon and Judith are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary and Jon’s 50th Birthday. 

There is a short video of the first piece Rusty Nails band played that evening.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.


  1. I love the coke chandelier! The members of this band all have such highly educated and talented jobs! I guess their singing and playing is a great outlet from their daytime jobs.

  2. It looks like a truly lovely evening - and is probably welcome relief from demanding jobs.

  3. Hello Margaret, what a great night that must have been. The band is excellent! The Coca Cola chandelier is ingenious. Great photos, lovely to see you and your daughter with the rest of the group too. Happy Anniversary to your daughter and son-in-law, and happy 50th to Jon. It will be fun to see your grandson play at the party.

  4. Hello, the chandelier is cool. I like the music, great video. Looks like a fun night out.
    Happy Anniversary to your daughter and your SIL. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  5. That chandelier is definitely unique.A one of a kind for sure.

  6. Loved their version of Chuck Berry's tune! The violin is a great addition! Thanks for sharing.
