Gig Updates – May 2014

Hi everyone,

I hope the first quarter of the year have been good to you so far. We’re almost nearing the middle of the year (oh, how time flies!!). Thank God that I’m still being kept busy with work, and I’m not slowing down anytime soon.

Here are some gig updates for the month of May. There are some shows happening, but for the most part, I’ll be away on tour (for a whole month) with my band WVC TRiO +1 for the second half of May until the first half of June. I hope you can catch some of my shows before then. So here it goes:

2/5 (Friday) – The Julian Chan Organ Quartet @ Room-8, Moon Bar. 9:30pm, no cover.

This will be an interesting show, as it will be a debut of an organ quartet I’m putting together for this Friday. We will be playing a few standards and some organ-based funky material. This Organ Quartet will feature Ee Jeng (organ), KJ Wong (drums), myself on saxophone, and introducing an up-and-coming young guitarist Ho Chee Seng.

4/5 (Sunday) – No Black Tie Jazz Jam Session with WVC TRiO +1. 9:30pm, no cover.

12/5 – 12/6 – WVC TRiO +1: Waiting For That Day ASIA TOUR 2014.

This will be the second tour around Asia with this line-up, and with the help of the Royal Gala Arts Fund and MyPAA, we are able to do a more extensive tour around China and other parts of Asia. In total, we will be traveling to 17 cities in the span of one month – 15 in China, and ending with one show in Macau and one show in Bangkok, Thailand. This tour will also be documented by our good friend and video/photographer Tan Choo Harn, as well as Wong Horngyih.

This will also be our first tour with our latest album (out May 4th), WVC TRiO+1: WAITING FOR THAT DAY, the fourth album for the band (the first for this line up of musicians: Tay Cher Siang – piano, Julian Chan – sax, AJ Popshuvit – bass, and KJ Wong – drums).

(Tour schedule to be announced shortly)

I hope you will be able to make it some of our shows. If you’re around China and we happen to be in your city, I hope you can make it for our shows there, too.

Gig: JC with the David Gomes Trio @ RoomEight, Moon Bar

Just confirmed, I’ll be playing with The David Gomes Trio at RoomEight@ Moon Bar this coming Friday 4th April 2014. They are opening up their doors again for Friday Jazz after a short hiatus, with more live jazz coming your way.

Come by, we start from 9:30pm onwards.

Gig update: Julian Chan New Quartet featuring Teriver Cheung (guitar)

Hi all,

A bit of a late update, but we hope you could still make it for the show, tomorrow night!

My quartet, the Julian Chan New Quartet, will be performing tomorrow night at the Jazz Room @ Moon Bar from 9.30pm. It’s been a while since our last gig as a quartet, so here we are! In addition, we’ve got a special treat: we’ve got a good friend and special guest Teriver Cheung playing with us on guitars.

Again, admission to the Moon bar is FREE, so you have no excuse in not making it! But do support the venue by getting drinks and food, to keep the place running, so you will be able to see more bands and acts playing there.
