The two pictures above sum up one of the best gigs I ever did in my close to 9 year journey as a musician: The My Squad Is Better Than Yours TV show by Mediacorp’s Channel 5. In summary, it is a TV music competition show pitting various local celebrity performers and entertainers in group and solo categories.

Here’s a video clip from one of the contestant’s,┬áJermaine Leong’s, solo performances on the “Rock week” episode, which was taped live on 14th September 2016 and broadcast on 18th September 2016 at 9.30pm.

She did a fantastic rendition of the late Prince’s iconic song, Purple Rain, and I was so happy to be back there on the drums supporting her on this performance.

I do hope Prince approves of our version!!

Although Jermaine’s team didn’t win in this particular episode we were on, this particular performance is well considered a true highlight of the show, and I think it will stand as one for a long time to come. Let time decide that.

As far as my drumming goes, I think I have achieved a breakthrough in terms of capturing a more laid-back feel – something I have to work very hard on. It’s still a work in progress, but I think I have alot more confidence now to really master this feel.

I hope you enjoyed watching and listening to this clip. Do look out for Jermaine Leong’s music.

Cheers!
