Jazz Band | Corporate Event | Lot 10, KL

Our Jazz Band performed for a corporate event in Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur on the 22nd of July 2011. Today’s band line up consisted of the singer, saxophonist and me; and we performed two sets of live music for a capacity crowd of 150.

I was stuck in the jam just around the lot 10 area simultaneously trying to figure out how to access its car park. Can’t even remember when was the last time I step into that building. But I manage to reach there on time for the sound check.

The event was held at the Teeq restaurant located on the 8th floor. There were trees and a garden outside the restaurant. It was breezy and pleasant; till the extent that the MC was having difficulty persuading the guests to enter the restaurant in order to start the event.

At 8:30pm, dinner finally commence after a brief opening speech by the president of the company. There were interactive puzzle games and lucky draws happening throughout the night intersperse by our Jazz Band performance.

We choose easy listening numbers to render during the first set and revved it up on the subsequent set. I notice that the crowd was enjoying the music, the food and the drinks!

The event concluded at about 11:00pm.

After a thorough inspection by Hector, he knew that Jason was the one he wanted to hire to perform for his mum’s birthday celebration. Besides, there are limited amounts of quality jazz bands in JB. Thus, Jason and his team gladly took on the offer to travel down south from KL where they are based.
