Lin, the bride found Jason Geh on the internet 6 months ago during her search for a suitable live band to entertain her guest at her wedding reception. She needed a band that is versatile and experience enough to render a wide range of songs from Jazz standards, Malay favourites, and Classic love songs. She also required the band to accompany her brother Hezly on the vocals.
