Watching the breathtaking concert during the Days of Siedlce Festival

We saw a unique concert as part of the Days of Siedlce 2023 in the green areas at Wiszniewski Street. On the second Saturday of our stay in this new Polish city we were fortunate to attend this concert.

The festival started with the Family Festival on the sportsground of School No.1.

We decided to attend the performances of a summer festival called At the Mural. They take place at the parking lot of the City Arts and Culture Center on weekends. In fact, At the Mural Festival includes two events at the same time: the 7th Music Theater Festival and the 3rd Theater Rendezvous.

We were also glad to attend a concert of Marek Andrzejewski and his band Niesformych that took place in the area of Pescantina Fountain. The concert program consisted of songs that brought the band awards at many national artistic song festivals – the songs that brought the musicians the constant sympathy of the audience as well. We had an opportunity to listen to songs from the latest album "Variat" that appeared in 2021. Marek Andrzejewski is the author, the composer, and the singer. He is a co-founder and pillar of the Lublin Bard Federation, the winner of the Main Awards of the Student Song Festival in Krakow, Castle Meetings "Let's Sing Poetry" in Olsztyn and many others. He reached a wide range of listeners, and the entire debut album is still the canon of Polish author's song.

Marek Andrzejewski writes in his songs about social matters, the relationships between nature and civilization, truth, love, difficult choices, emotions and the search for contemporary spirituality. His songs are melodic, optimistic, innovative, and memorable. You can find the elements of jazz, folk, rock and ballads in his songs.
The artist has six original albums and fourteen records recorded with the Lublin Bard Federation. Marek Andrzejewski has excellent contact with the audience, exudes energy and a sense of humor.
During the concert that we attended, Marek promoted the latest album called "Variat". It consists of original songs with mature and bold lyrics.

The songs represent a strong message about the search for what is most important in life.
The album is has a very rich palette of sounds: from an exploded, dynamic, effective rock songs to moody, focusing ballads. It is a musical feast, as it were.
Marek presented his team at the end of the concert: Marek Andrzejewski - guitar, singing; Michał Andrzejewski (Marek’s son) - piano; Jarosław Spałek - trumpet, flugelhorn; Christian Broniarz - saxophones; Hans Łukaszczyk - trombone, euphonium; Grzegorz Poliszak - drums; Marek Matwiejczyk - bass; Piotr Bogutin - electric guitar.

As Free As Butterflies
We attended an excellent concert of a Siedlce group named “As Free As Butterflies”. It was planned to take place at Pescantina Fountain, but for fear of rain it was moved to the neighboring air-conditioned White Hall of the MOK (City Cultural Branch).
