Go Glam Goes Unplugged Concert Promo…

From hearing budding and up-and-coming talents introducing themselves on national radio in the “Opening Act” segment on Hafeez Glamour‘s daily radio show “Go Glam“, you can now watch them present their talents live!!! The stage that gives them the opportunity to realise and take baby steps to spread their wings in our local Malay entertainment industry is the brainchild of two music activists, Olly Ismail and Alif Nuramin and organised by CMX International, Ilham Kosmik, Anchorvale CC MAEC and People’s Association Youth Movement (PAYM). The event brings together over fifteen of the talents who have been featured on the daily popular radio segment on 31st March 2012, which is this coming Saturday. What is unique about this unplugged concert is that it is free, given the number of talents involved!!!

Not only will the budding acts be the performers on that day, they will be joined by already established local solo artistes and bands like Fuad Rahman, Ikhsan Ace (former vocalist of Aryan Band), Kraton, Virus Cinta, B8, Revalina, Shahridzuan Selamat, Rudy Djoharnaen, Rifa’ah Ridzuwanulhakim and Dinodi, amongst others. The show will be hosted by recently-anointed “Best Tukang Karut” at the recent “Terjah! Chingay 2012” event and part-time deejay at RIA 897FM, Dzar Ismail. He will be joined by his fellow Anugerah Skrin 2010 alumnus, Raja Razie, and part-time model / actress / host Deanna Manto. Seeing the huge line-up and with the weather being very fickle of late, I really hope what happened at last month’s “Muzik Festival Melayu” at Marina Barrage, will not be replicated. Moreso since this concert will be held at the Floating Atrium of the Anchorvale Community Club, an outdoor facade. The concert is slated to begin at 6pm and end at 10pm. If you support local talents, this is the place to be this Saturday!!!

Konsert Misteri Jam 12: Jangan Takut Hantu…

For regular readers of this blog, I know this comes as a massive surprise to you, but no, I was not at The Float @ Marina Bay for Countdown 2012, even though one of my favourite singers, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza, was performing on my 33rd birthday. I was happily relaxing and watching the show from the comfort of home, and I would have probably gone had my favourite team not played that night. But the night of rest did me good as I welcomed 2012 by attending the RIA 897FM-organised “Konsert Misteri Jam 12: Jangan Takut Hantu” event held at Fort Canning Park on the first day of the new Gregorian calendar. I have been delaying this particular entry for the fact that I have been quite busy, to the point I was reminded to post this entry as soon as possible by none other than the creative mind behind the success of the most highly rated programme on the radio station, none other than DJ KC himself.

Speaking as the co-administrator of the official blog of the said programme, I have witnessed first hand how the show has evolved since he took over the helm some four years ago from the previous incumbent Zan Sofiyan. KC has done such a fantastic job to lift the quality standards of the programme to the point that his occasional absences through leave or sickness is lamented by fans on the station’s official Facebook page Wall. Even when there were occasions he was not feeling well, he soldiered on, or came back just to do the two hour programme, its popularity spreading across the world with the availability of internet radio and via radio applications on smart phones. I know how popular it is just by looking at the number of emails received by fans of the programme who shared their personal experiences, a bulk of them coming from across the Causeway, as well as as far away as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, even Dubai. The show is such a hit that to have a concert was a good way to show the station’s appreciation to the fans.

This popularity was very much evident on the day of the concert, when 6000-odd fans thronged the lush lawns of the Fort Canning Park. When I reached the venue close to 6pm, a long queue had formed outside the entrance. I was fortunate enough to get a parking lot as a vehicle had moved off just as I was nearing it. We were allowed in at about 6:20pm and it was a sight to behold seeing the area being filled to its brim. I have never seen a local concert filled with just local acts get such a positive response as this. But then again, the topic of the supernatural has always been a fascinating and intriguing one in our community so it was no surprise that even without big names to grace the event, the theme itself guaranteed bums on the lush green grass of the venue. And I believe this was the first supernatural-themed concert held in a grand way in Singapore. Forget any Halloween-related parties, but correct me please if I’m wrong here.

I was pleased to know that a space was set aside for concert-goers to observe their obligatory responsibilities and it was heartening to see quite a number of people observing them judging by the queues and patient waiting outside the area. The only thing I was a little peeved about was why did the pre-show host, who happened to be one half of the hosts during the Grand Final of the Piala Dollah Kassim 2011 tournament, choose to use the time between 7:10pm and 7:45pm to hype the crowd and encouraging them to make a lot of noise??? I personally felt it was disrespectful to those who were observing their responsibilities. He could have at least started say around 7:30pm, not right smack when people were saying their prayers. I dunno if this was the station’s decision to hype the crowd as early as possible or was it the pre-show host’s own doing, but I hope in future, a little amount of respect would be observed. I’m sure for anyone who observes their daily obligations, they hate to be interrupted or disturbed by things happening around them and want full concentration.

Fiza O and Hassan Salleh…

The show began with the hosts Fiza O and Hassan Salleh, the station’s programme director coming on stage dressed as what appeared to be hideous characters. Not sure what character was Mr Hassan supposed to be portraying as he was dressed what appeared to be “Hantu Kum-Kum“, but Fiza was dressed as a “Langsuir” complete with make up on her lower neck to show that her head was previously “detached” from her body. As they welcomed us to the show and thanked the various sponsors, they also took the time to remind the audience that the concert also marked the official launch of the “Misteri Jam 12: Jangan Takut Hantu” VCD / CD containing horror-themed songs normally heard during the weekly two-hour programme. These songs were composed and performed by our local acts as well as DJ KC himself. The VCD / CD also contains a short film titled “Saka Mak Minah” and acted by none other than the deejays themselves. On top of that, there are short video clips of KC reading ghost stories at locations in Singapore regarded as haunted. The VCD / CD was sold at a special rate of $18.00 that night whereas it is available in good stores today at a price of $19.90. Suffice to say, the popularity of the programme guaranteed three-thousand odd copies being sold that night!!!

Besides the concert marking a milestone for the radio station with the launch of the VCD / CD, it also coincided with the annual Projek Rentak competition organised by RIA 897FM and COMPASS. As the theme of this concert was of the supernatural and horror, songs composed for this competition also had to have the same or related theme. The three finalists who came on stage to perform their songs – Klutz (“Mentera Dendam Puteri“), Iskandar Rawi (“Lari“) and Md Bakti Ridhwan (“Madah Pohon Beringin“) did not disappoint. Each song and performance had their own strengths and speciality. In the end, the humour-infused “Lari” was chosen as the winner of the competition, even though my personal favourite was Klutz‘s “Mentera Dendam Puteri“, who came in second. Md Bakti Ridhwan‘s “Madah Pohon Beringin” bagged the Best Performance of the night to go along with the second-runner up tag that he received. All the compositions were judged by Brader Bo, Moliano, Sham Wahab and Noor Hasnah Adam; music producers, composers and lyricists in their own rights. The Best Performance category was judged by Dr. Edmund Lam, president of COMPASS and Ms Zakiah Halim, Assistant Vice-President of Malay / Indian / Expat Programming for Mediacorp Radio.

Iskandar Rawi (second from right) was the winner of Projek Rentak: MJ12, seen here with Ms. Zakiah Halim and his fellow performers receiving their award…

I will not delve too much about the other performances and segments that night as you would be able to view them in the video montage that I will put up in due time. I was suitable impressed with the guest band that was formed (they called themselves “The Momoks“), led by Brader Bo, with Fadly of X-Tech / No Strings Attached fame on lead vocals. Fans of the 2008 Anugerah Band competition would remember Fadly for the vocal powerhouse that he is, and that night he whipped the crowd into frenzy with his unmatched prowess. I know that certain quarters complained that it felt more like a rock concert but I thought the songs performed that night were given a fresh injection with much needed energy. As the title of the concert had stated, “Jangan Takut Hantu“, the pumped-up feeling I got from the blasting music sure as hell made me forget about being scared of ghosts. If that was their intention by playing that kind of loud music, then I think they have achieved their aim. Other local acts who performed that night were Shafyre, Kraton, Rifaah Ridzuwanulhakim of 2D fame and B8, whom I heard, regrouped again specially for that night only.

One itinerary in the programme line-up that had the crowd in stitches was the “Momok Paling Sachok” segment. Concert-goers were encouraged to dress as ghosts, even the stagehands and concert crew were dressed as scary characters. Most notable of all was one of the crew members (if I’m not mistaken, it’s DJ Harie Azhari of XFM 963FM / Warna 942FM), who portrayed the irritating “Makcik Keropok” by walking to and fro giving crackers and asking for money in return. The five finalists who went on stage for that particular segment certainly had to be given full marks for the effort they came up with. I must say most in the audience were also very much impressed by their respective get-ups. Some even formed queues to take a photograph with them. In the end, the one who won the segment was the lady by the name of “Wati“, who was dressed as a Pontianak. The funny part about that segment was not only were the “ghosts” cracking jokes on stage with the hosts for the segment, Aura Shai and Nity Baizura, but they were also game enough to dance along to the tunes of Inul Daratista‘s dangdut songs.

The true star of the show: DJ KC…

All in all, I had an enjoyable night. What was supposed to end at 10:30pm ended about thirty-five minutes later, but I did not feel the time passing by at all. I heard complaints afterwards that the sound system was bad. Where I was, it did not feel that way, maybe because I was seated quite close to the speakers. I was just thankful that I had premium “seats” in the house. As the co-administrator of the Misteri Jam 12 official blog, I felt heartened by the turnout of the concert. I felt extremely happy and proud for the producer of the concert himself, KC, whose hard work to make this programme and subsequently the concert a success, paid off big time. People only see the end product of his efforts but the amount of time and sacrifices he puts in daily to entertain listeners is extremely commendable, especially moreso when days leading up to the concert, he stumbled upon several personal obstacles to overcome physically and mentally. For that, respect and my humble salute is accorded to him and to me, he was the true star of the concert. No one can begrudge him of that.

Official Opening of The Fan Club…

fan

First and foremost, apologies in advance for not updating my blog for more than a week. Was just too lazy to update and just typing this out in bits and pieces. I wonder if some or any of you had expected me to review “Bersama Anuar Zain” showcase at Grand Hyatt Hotel‘s Grand Ballroom instead of this event which I will be focussing on in this entry??? Cos there were some people who did say, be it through comments in my blog or messages left in my Facebook, that they would be seeing me at Anuar‘s showcase, even though I made no promises nor said anything about going in the first place. Maybe the impression that I would have gone was based on the review I did when Anuar last did his first solo concert here on 8 November 2008 at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Apologies if some of you had expected to see me there.

dscn2645

So why did I choose not to go to Anuar‘s showcase since I’m after all quite the big fan of his??? Firstly I felt that the gap between that concert and last Saturday‘s showcase was a bit too close to each other, even though some of you might counter back and say it was four months ago and four months is long enough to make one crave to watch another stellar performance by the great man himself. But I was sceptical. The decision to do another showcase just four months after the concert seemed kinda odd. I felt there was every possibility that it would just be a repeat of the concert with a few tweaks and elements changed. And since he has no new album between the four months gap, all the more that I felt that he might be repeating some, if not most, of the songs he sang that November night.

dscn2646

I’ve got to admit, being one of my greater influences in music and especially my love for the R&B genre, the temptation was there to watch Anuar perform once again, but no way was I gonna fork out close to $500 (for me and the wife) just to sit so close to the front. Not wanting to sound as though we’re rich or some high class society people, but we both love to watch concerts / showcases and sit somewhere near the front, our way of supporting and appreciating good entertainment, knowing we would be reciprocated with a quality performance in return by whoever it was / is performing. The credit crunch these days meant I had to tighten my belt in this instance and perhaps sacrifice certain things that I like. And this year itself, I had to sacrifice quite a few things and be more stringent with the performances that I want to watch / had attended / had to forgo.

dscn2649

KC welcoming the early birds into the event venue…

Not even the decision to slash the cheapest ticket on offer ($128) to $88 two days before the event proper could sway me into turning back on my decision. So rather than sit at the back and paying less, I chose not to go. Anyway, by then I had made up my mind to attend the Official Launch of The Fan Club. Instead of watching “Lelaki Ini” (Anuar Zain), I chose to watch “Lelaki Baru” (Zaibaktian) & “Lelaki Setia” (Zynal) instead. For $10, I think I got more value-for-money watching seven of our local acts who actually need more of our support than someone who is already established and well respected on both sides of the Causeway. But the wifey sure put me in a spot when she asked, “What if it was Siti who was performing???” Hahahaha… I’m sure most of you would know the answer to that!!!

dscn2652

KC giving the audience an explaination on what the website is all about…

Now that I’ve explained my non-attendance at Grand Hyatt Hotel‘s Grand Ballroom in four paragraphs (hahahah), I can now talk about the launch of The Fan Club proper. So some of you might be wondering, what in the world is The Fan Club??? For those who have been living on a different planet and do not read the local Malay papers, nor listen to local Malay radio stations, The Fan Club is an initiative product by DJ KC of RIA 89.7FM and Zan Sofiyan of Warna 94.2FM to unite all fan clubs of local artistes under one roof and in turn ignite more support for our local acts. This collaborative effort aims to transcend whatever barriers, boundaries, differences and rivalries that may occur as a result of different interests and support for the various local acts in our small music industry. It has an official website which you can go to just by clicking here.

dscn2662

The Fan Club is officially launched!!!

Being the first of its kind in SingaporeThe Fan Club will also act as a base and focal point for information on local artistes as well as an interactive medium for all the various local fan club members to meet and exchange ideas, news and views of their respective idols. The website will be a main source for news and latest happenings on our local artistes, a good way to know when they will make their next appearance outdoors, on television, on radio and even in the print media. Ok some of you might counter back and say that a similar kind of website has been around for about five years now but that website does not act as a focal point for the various fan clubs in Singapore to converge even though its aim is to support local acts as well. Anyway the latter have since expanded their range of support to regional acts as well from what I observed. Apologies in advance if my observation is incorrect.

Introducing Faizal Isa…

The Fan Club website is not just an entity in the cyberworld but exists physically as well. Having clinched the rights to use a karaoke centre at Perkampungan Melayu Geylang Serai, members who have signed up in The Fan Club‘s website will be able to use the venue for various activities like birthday parties, reunions and other kinds of small functions for their respective fan clubs or even their own personal events from 1pm onwards daily. For more information, one just needs to pick up the phone, dial 81515191 and speak to Mr. Khamis on how to go about booking the place. The place is also most likely to be the place for exclusive showcases of local artistes to be held specially for members of the website. To date, they have gotten the agreement of a few fan clubs like Didifiers (fans of Didicazli), Sleeqaholics (fans of Sleeq) amongst others, to join in making the initiative a success.

dscn2667

Addy posing for the camera…

In conjunction with the official launch of The Fan Club and its website, a showcase at the said venue at Perkampungan Melayu Geylang Serai, was put together to celebrate its launch and a number of local acts came together to lend their support and perform. From the original list of Didicazli, Sleeq, B8, Zaibaktian and Addy Cradle, Zynal (M. Nasir‘s younger brother) and Faizal Isa, a new face in the scene, were added to grace the occasion. The showcase was hosted by none other than KC himself. Originally, Zan Sofiyan was supposed to co-host along with KC, or at least be there to oversee the smoothness of the event, but more pressing commitments with his day job as a producer-presenter with Warna 94.2FM meant that he had to skip the showcase and launch altogether.

dscn2668

Didicazli chilling out in the dressing room before going on stage…

The show was meant to start at 2pm and end at 5pm, with the start of the performances slated at 2.30pm. The first twenty minutes was more or less an introductory “lecture” on what The Fan Club is all about as well as a guided tour around its online portal and what registered members would be able to do in there. It kinda reminded me of Facebook but the design layout is more like a YouTube profile. I think my only grouse on the site is that when it comes to uploading photographs, you need to upload it one by one as compared to Facebook or Multiply where one is able to upload a lot of photographs from a folder. It’s fine if you have the patience to upload tons of photograph. Me being the naturally impatient creature that I am, don’t have all day and cannot sit through doing it.

dscn2669

B8 all smiles before their showcase…

Surprisingly enough, the performances began about 5-10 minutes earlier than expected but not before we had a rousing start to the showcase with confetti being shot into the air to signal the official launch of The Fan Club and its online portal. I think this is the first time I’ve been to a show that started way ahead of schedule. First up was Faizal Isa. This guy is quite a familiar face having entered several singing competitions before this. It’s difficult to gauge his potential and showmanship based on the one song he sang that day – Ello‘s “Pergi Untuk Kembali” – but his presence would already add on to the list of heart-throbs that girls cannot get enough of. Being relatively new, it was only natural that he came off a bit shy but with more such appearances, he will gain the experience and the know-how to whip the crowd into a frenzy. For now, I will reserve more of my comments on him till I’ve seen more of what he is capable of doing but initial signs look quite promising.

dscn2677

Faizal Isa showing us his potential…

Addy Cradle was next and he obviously charmed the audience not only with his awe-inspiring play of the guitar, but I’m sure some of the ladies in the audience were also smittened whenever this guy smiled. A pity due to work commitments, Addy only performed one song, “Purnama“, taken from his latest solo offering released last year entitled “Divine“. In case music lovers out there would like to get a hold of his album, it is being sold at Gramophone, Muzika Records and FGM. Zynal, the younger brother of music legend M. Nasir took centrestage afterwards singing “Lelaki Setia” and his performance was ably assisted by B8‘s Fuzzley who did the rap portion of the song. This guy is very much talented like his elder brother and it’s just a pity that he has to live in the shadows of his more famous sibling.

dscn2670

This is Zynal for the uninitiated…

Zaibaktian and his group of sessionists came on stage right after Zynal and they wowed the audience with three songs, “Dunia Yang Fana“, “Taman Cinta” and of course not forgetting the haunting hit single “Lelaki Baru“. It’s really good to hear his songs being performed live even before he has released his full album. I for one cannot wait for it to be released because from what I’ve heard so far, or seen from the various clips of his performances on YouTube or Facebook, the songs are top notch and it’s gonna be worth the money spent. Already “Dunia Yang Fana” brings with it a spiritual message and reminder of who we are and the journey that we are leading to. I dunno why but the lyrics made me feel quite humbled somewhat. Whoever that says music and entertainment does not bring with it some form of message and advice needs to get their heads fixed. And you don’t need a nasyid song to drum some effect into you.

dscn2701

Zaibaktian certainly enjoyed himself performing for the audience…

The boys from B8 were next to perform, singing their hit song “Bidadari Hatiku“, which I found out rather belatedly that it was a song composed by KC himself, and a new single called “Kau Selingkuh“. I’m not sure why the energy level of the audience suddenly dipped during B8‘s performance. Was it because they were expecting the bigger names on the slated list to perform or B8‘s songs need to have that wee bit of oomph to get the crowd going, rather than sing sappy tunes all the way??? Maybe the latest single , which is of a mid-tempo range, needs to grow a bit more on them cos I observed and found that the audience was kinda bored (based on facial expressions) during B8‘s performance. The only thing I could second guess was they cannot wait for Sleeq and Didicazli to appear on stage. That was to be expected somewhat since the majority of the audience were teenage girls.

dscn2715

B8 performing “Kau Selingkuh“…

Well they didn’t have to wait long actually cos Sleeq came on shortly after with “Pilihan Aku” and “Cun Saja“, which of course brought the house down with screams of frenzy coming from the young ladies on the floor. Sleeq have grown in stature from the first time I watched them at Imran Ajmain‘s single launch of “Sudah Tu Sudah” back in 2006. There is a lot of confidence in them, a kind of swagger that knows they are in control of the crowd and having them under their thumbs. However, a kind advice I would like to pass to the boys is to improve on their Malay vocabulary seeing that their medium is our mother tongue. It would serve them well to communicate to the audience especially when addressing the older generation. I dunno whether to be horrified or amused when Syarif was unsure of the meaning of the word “Sepupu” when referring to Alyph, who is most definitely his cousin by virtue of their mums being sisters. For his sake, I hope he was joking.

dscn2726

Sleeq being slick as always…

Just before crowd favourite Didicazli came on, his mother was called upon to come on stage so that everyone could sing her a birthday song. Her birthday happened to be on 8th March, the following day. The sweet lady was all surprised and blushing as everyone honoured her with the customary birthday song ala Ismet Ulam Raja style. Then it was her son’s turn to take centrestage. Here’s a guy who doesn’t need to make a lot of effort or showmanship when he’s on stage. His mere presence and voice alone had the audience eating out of his hand. As a guy, it is difficult for me to see how the ladies could go ga-ga over him but I do appreciate that he backs it up with his laid back style and infectious vocals. Well if you ask me, the same could be said of Anuar Zain and a few other male singers out there. But till now I am still intrigued at why the male singers tend to get a lot of attention on this side of the Causeway as compared to the female singers???

dscn2736

Didi with “Rela Setia“…

dscn2743

The audience waited the whole day for this particular performance…

The day did not end with just Didi performing “Rela Setia“, a personal favourite of mine, and his new single “Menyayangimu“. If history was created that day to celebrate the launch of the Fan Club, another history was also made when Sleeq came back on stage to sing the massive hit single “Impianku” with Didicazli, live for the very first time. It has been difficult to get them together to perform the song at outdoor performances before this, especially when those who had attended Didi‘s album launch a few months ago had expected them to do so. I guess it was a moment to savour for the watching audience seeing them sing the song in the flesh. I reckoned the anticipation reached its maximum point when the list of performers slated to perform that day had both on the list. Oh how the audience sang from start till end.

dscn2749

The finale…

The show wrapped up when all the performers, sans Addy Cradle who had left by then, came back on stage to perform Lovehunters‘ “Ku Ukir Namamu“. Even KC joined in the singing when at first he was just standing by the side of the stage, preferring to let the others have their limelight. Event wasn’t exactly over after that, as there was still the matter of having the autograph signing session which of course whetted the appetites of the young ladies in attendance. More of such events are scheduled in the near future and with it adds another outlet for you to lend your support for local acts. More information will be made available at the official website of The Fan Club
