in a world of chaos, it is good to remember oldies. oldies aren't mouldy.
this is one song we would cover in the upcoming "tribute to jacky cheung" gig in NBT next month. i am sure if you are over 35, you would cherish this immensely.
really, we are one of the few in malaysia who is capable of consistently churning quality tributes to chinese music icons one after another, and we are mighty proud of this.
some of our fans even commented : "RM50 cover charge, so cheap!". yea, we know but that's our way to reward music lovers. you guys are really fantastic to support us over the years, what can we do but to give you back quality music at an affordable rate.
most music lovers are closet ones, they prefer to stay at home to listen to their music. nothing wrong with that. so those who really come out for live music are very very precious.
to these people, you can have our words: we won't leave this industry (we may stop producing albums), we would keep producing quality shows like this to keep the music going!
like this song above, when everything is gone, only the love remains.
this week's youtube sensation is rose liu, she from the taiwan's "superstar reality show" last year!
we already took notice of rose in the show last year(the same series with the incredible janice yan) and we would expect someone to sign her but up till now, we didn't hear much about her latest movement.
rose has a wide vocal range and plenty of skills to handle a wide repertoire of songs.
this version of teresa teng " a thousand words" is fresh and unconventional, kudos to the arranger.
we would recommend rose to go the audiophile singer path, rather than pop. her talents and voice would be wasted and buried under the commercial pop trash.
we have covered quite a few pop legends in the past, but we haven't done him yet.
yes, jacky cheung, the god of songs!
one reasons we stopped watching his concerts in recent years is: he didn't sing all those golden hits in his heyday anymore!
so, if he does not sing them, let us sing them, how about that?
jeffery lim, worm lee and our newcomer yeh feng, all 3 singers are gonna bring back all these nostalgic hits in a non-stop, a-hit-a-minute fashion! so it is gonna be one breathless run of karaoke hits for you to sing-along!
yes, the dates are 19th and 20th of december 2012, this time at No Black Tie.
we are gonna have a massive karaoke session on consecutive nights! come join us!
we heard you. a lot of people wanted back a female vocalist like regine tai in 2v1g.
we found one and we are going to bring her to tour.
for the record, 2v1g has never toured malaysia.
this tour arises from our recent visits to many states in malaysia and discovered many beautiful cafes there, especially in penang (oh, how we love the DAP-governed penang!), ipoh and melaka. you need a beautiful venue to go with 2v1g's exquisite music.
and we are going to do a lot of new songs.
you wanna hear the new female vocalist sing "tempting heart" and "i don't want to be alone", two wonderful ballads covered by regine tai in 2v1g-1? you wanna hear how the come-of-age winnie ho sing "perhaps"? you wanna hear the entirely mature roger wang play for 2v1g again?
this "new" 2V1G: Winnie Ho + Roger Wang + A new female "V" are going
back to making music in its simplest form. "The Beautiful Cafe Tour 2013"
will kick start in January 2013!
We have already earmarked several famous spots, the rest will be confirmed later.
Ipoh: Indulgence Cafe and Restaurant, 18th Jan 2013
Penang: China House, 19th Jan 2013
Melaka: Yet to be confirmed
Singapore: Yet to be confirmed
JB: Yet to be confirmed

make sure you are part of the audience, whichever state you are!
