AUDIE NG The Man Behind The Silver Strings

Producer, director, music man, business man, bass man and family man, Audie Ng has his hands full when it comes to managing Singapore's pop music scene. He has been in this tough and unstable entertainment industry since the 60s but Audie stands tall and is still at it after nearly 50 years.

He invited me to sing with his band nearly 50 years ago. That was in Idris Road near Lavender Street. I joined the Silver Strings and had a ball. We kept in touch and in October 2008 he invited me to sing again with the band. And we had 60s REUNION at VivoCity on Nov 8th 2008.

More about Audie in my later blogs.

Clearly he has a great passion for music. That's what drives him, isn't it?

Passion for music, definitely. Like the other boys Audie reads music and plays the bass well.

But Audie has business acumen, putting him in good stead all these years.
