Gig Updates!

Playing At The Esplanade Concourse On 1st July 2014

Dear all,

Hope your Monday wasn’t so blue..

Just a heads up that I got a last minute call today to stand-in for another drummer who unfortunately hurt his back at the Esplanade Concourse, tomorrow, for 2 sets of Modern Jazz music. The repertoire includes tunes from Pat Metheny, Gretchen Parlato, and a couple of SIngaporean originals written by vocalist, Huimin Lim, and guitarist, Alvin Wong.

The first set kicks off at 7.15pm and the 2nd set at 8.15pm. Hope to see some of you there!!

Performing with The High Rollers A Little Harry’s (Keppel Club)

Hey peeps, just an update that I’m back at Little Harry’s, Keppel Club, this coming Friday, 28th February, with The High Rollers to pump out time-honoured classic Pop/Rock songs of the last 50 years. Come on down and indulge in a walk down memory lane with us!

1st set kicks off at 8.30pm.

Upcoming gigs: Beatles, Shadows, Classic Rock Tunes

Hi all,

Hope your week has gone well and it’s time to look forward to the weekend. 

It’s a great pleasure to inform all the good peeps who are reading this blog, that I’ll be doing some gigs with a veteran Singaporean band covering golden favourites from the 50’s ,60’s and 70’s, which could turn into a regular affair thereafter. There will be lots of Beatles, Shadows, and classic tracks from the Rock greats of the 60’s and 70’s. The audience demographic will naturally be made up of people who spent their childhood during this fascinating period for music. 

So what does this mean to me, being the youngest member of the group playing music that was recorded when my parents were still studying? It is a rare opportunity to go back in time and embrace the roots of the music I love. It is that rare opportunity to learn in greater depth and detail the infant phase of development of Rock And Roll, especially as applied to the drumming. My goal is to have lots of fun and nail the gigs by playing the original drum parts as accurately as I can to the original studio recordings with the correct sounds, tempos, and feels. Only then will I be able to help the band create an authentic experience for the audience who would prefer to hear the music as how they have heard it on radio and recordings all these years. Some of them have even seen some of these bands we’re covering live before, so perhaps I may get an opportunity to talk to them about their experiences hearing and seeing these bands up close. 

Exciting times ahead!

Busy mid to late week!

1) Recording Session at a school this Thursday followed by a club gig (4 sets, starting 10.30pm)
2) Teaching Plus 2 band rehearsals on Friday 
3) Playing (percussion) with The Gladstones this Saturday at the Esplanade Concourse. 2 sets starting 4.30pm.
