“Today, for the holidays, we decided to host our first music night in two years. We used to have it every month. Of course, with the coronavirus we had to stop and since we got to a point where most people are vaccinated, we decided to do a music night for the upcoming holidays. Of course, we follow the health rules very strictly here, no one unvaccinated is allowed to enter,” Sarafoglou said.

According to Sarafoglou, Papaioannou has appeared at the Greek Islands on music nights for 15 whole years. In fact, he has made numerous appearances with Linos Kokotos- including one just before the pandemic lockdown- appearing along with Kostas Psaros by his side.

Regarding the future, the owner of Greek Islands admitted that the Omicron variant put a pause on the smiles and the optimistic predictions, nevertheless he expressed the belief that the worst of the pandemic is behind us, urging the members of the community to get vaccinated.

“We have our regular customers today, who came out of their shell and came to celebrate together. Omicron ‘buttoned’ us a little, but I want to believe that the worst is behind us. We are optimistic about the future. I want to wish the whole community health, to take care, and to get vaccinated. I do not want to hear nonsense about this,” concluded Sarafoglou.

The evening was reminiscent of the old days with singing and dancing, showing how much everyone missed the music nights at Greek Islands.
