The 3 piece band consists of a female singer and two musicians (saxophonist and keyboardist). They performed light and easy dinning music of mix selections during the start of this dinner event, and gradually increase the energy and mood as the night progresses. Their single set performance was executed prior to presentation of the awards.

The video above contains introduction by Jason Geh, highlights of the event and samples of the Jazz Band performing live during the night. This clip is longer in duration than the usual ones produced by JG Entertainment (about 15 minutes in length).

Let me explain why. Our new video guy managed to capture quite a number of songs that was rendered by the band; the audio was pretty good. Thus I was compelled to include more songs on this post.

This video will provide viewers with a clear idea of the band’s performance. It also showcases their ability to interact and invoke response, making the crowd excited towards the end of the performance.

There’s one individual from the main table who was sporting enough to do the twist with the singer. There is also a bonus track that’s included where the singer ventured amongst the crowd and persuaded a lady to sing! So be sure to watch the clip till the end.

The band arrived at 5:00pm for the sound check but had to wait for the function room to be vacated as there was a separate corporate seminar that was scheduled during the day. The room soon cleared and the band members manage to proceed with their sound check and were done by 6:00pm.

It was pretty straight forward as the Jazz Band consisted of only three performers thus they just needed to test and balance the microphones for the singer and saxophonist and the output of the keyboard.
