Gig updates – Oct & Nov 2013

Hi all!

Greetings from Hualien, Taiwan. I’m here in Taiwan, for the Taichung Jazz Festival which happens this weekend. I’ll be performing with the WVC Trio+1 featuring Winnie Ho : The Jazzy Sounds of Teresa Teng. But meanwhile, we’re here a few days earlier before the festival to hang about and sight-see a little of Taipei and Hualien.

Anyway, now with some good internet connection, I just want to announce a few gig updates for this month and next month (and hopefully more on the way), so here’s a brief synopsis:

25 & 26 Oct (Fri & Sat): Valtinho Anastascio, Tay Cher Siang and Friends (I just got roped in last minute!) @ No Black Tie.

26 Oct (Sat afternoon): WVC Trio+1 with Winnie Ho – TEDxPetalingStreet

6 Nov (Wed): The Julian Chan New Quartet @ No Black Tie

7 Nov (Thu): Teriver Cheung/Julian Chan Quartet @ No Black Tie

8 Nov (Fri): Teriver Cheung/Julian Chan Quartet @ The Jazz Room @Moon Bar.

I’m looking forward to play some seriously fun music over these two months. We hope you will join me in partaking in this fun as well! Hope to see you at some of the gigs.

Busy second half of April!

As I’ve just finished with classes for the UCSI School of Music semester (and what a time squeeze effort it was, juggling it with the touring and everything else), the next thing in order is continuing with the Jeff Chang Tour in China, and back again to KL for a few shows with WVC Trio +1 and a few awesome singers.

Later today (Thursday, 18 April), I’ll be flying off to Nanchang, a city southeast of China, for the next edition of Jeff Chang’s tour. We were supposed to be in Cixi City (three hours drive from Shanghai) last weekend, but the concert got postponed due to the H7N9 avian flu. I hope it’s not spreading to where we are! We will be there from Thursday through Sunday, where we will fly back to KL again.

On Monday, I’ll be heading down to Melaka to join WVC Trio to play in Geographer’s Cafe, and featuring Melaka local stalwart, Nadia. On the 25th (Thu), we’ll be heading down to Melaka again to perform at the Hospice Malaysia fundraiser concert event. This time this concert will feature WVC Trio +1, Winnie Ho and jazz evangelist Junji Delfino!

And on the 26th and 27th weekend, we will be performing with Shanghai Jazz exponent, Janet Lee, in “Shanghai Jazz Redefined” at Alexis Bistro and WIne Bar, in Great Eastern Mall Ampang.

What a busy second half of the month ahead! Times like this I reminded again why I love playing music. 🙂

Till the next update! Have a great week ahead everyone.

Shows in April 2013!

March was just CRAZY!

I couldn’t be more grateful for a busy and productive time, like I’ve had in March 2013. To make a day count, I was only in the country for 13 days the entire month of March. Could’ve been less if it wasn’t for the fact that March this year had five weekends. I was in Singapore for almost half the month and practically just over a week in China. While I was back in KL, however, I was also teaching almost everyday I was back, replacing some classes in UCSI and also slotting in a few private students. Nothing like a busy schedule to start off the year.

Anyway, on to April! I can’t believe it’s already April. To quote some old Chinese (or Cantonese, perhaps?) saying: give it a few winks, and the next thing we know, half the year is gone. Time really flies. I don’t really know if it’s because of me getting…eh hem…older (or more mature, like some would say), or the space time continuum is changing and moving faster? Either way, the show must go on. So here’s a brief list of shows I’ll be doing this month, please check out my Performance calendar page for a full listing:

5/4 (Fri) – The Julian Chan New Quartet featuring Cheryl Tan @ The Jazz Room, Moon Bar (Plaza Damansara)

13/4 (Sat) – Jeff Chang World Tour @ Cixi City CHINA (postponed due to reports of Avian flu)

20/4 (Sat) – Jeff Chang World Tour @ Nanchang CHINA

22/4 (Mon) – WVC Trio +1 featuring Nadia @ Geographer’s Cafe, Melaka

25/4 (Thu) – WVC Trio +1, Junji Delfino and Winnie Ho @ Souled Out, fundraiser concert for Hospice Melaka, Hotel Equatorial Melaka

26-27/4 (Fri & Sat) – Janet Lee, Shanghai Nights Redefined (w/ WVC Trio+1) @ Alexis Bistro and Wine Bar

27/4 (Sat) – JC Saxophone Quartet (tbc)

That’s all for now folks. More updates on the way as it comes by, so do stay tuned!
