"TO BE A ROCK BUT NOT TO ROLL"

together again 18th september 3pm national library

silver strings
silver strings and dukes @ the national library:

18th september
sunday 3pm: the plaza
ground floor
national library (main)
north bridge road
singapore
(near ritz carlton and raffles hotel)

don't forget us this sunday. only our second appearance this year, beside the kallang wave gig. informality is the key, like this piece of writing. and the dukes will be there. dress any way you like.

it's in the afternoon at 3 and it's free. the library is upstairs, a coffee house to watch from, across the road a bus stop and we are performing on the ground floor at the plaza.

call it what you may. t-dance or a simple get together for all. but it's a gig specially for the silver arts festival in september. you can rock and roll, cha-cha and do the twist. most of all you can relax.

bring the family, children and grandchildren. our band boys will bring along their families too, so if you hear some hand clapping, they are probably the silver strings' fans, friends and family.

you can come for autographs if you wish. bring your program booklet where silver strings and duke will only be too glad to pen their thoughts.

come and meet andy, audie, nick, mike, john, rickie. and the dukes peter, zainal, paul, aziz and jerry.
the dukes


                                       
seats are available too, next to the coffee house but there's standing room everywhere.
see you soon!

JOHN CHER said...

JIMMY APPUDURAI CHUA said...

enjoy guys; National Library? did not know the gigs there a quiet one I suppose?

AUDIE NG said...

Hi Jimmy,
have u performed in a quiet concert bcos d venue is a library hehe.

MICHAEL LEE said...

Haha - classical music can be loud too... I think loudness within reasonable limits is not a problem. A badly played music or singing is more irritating. In my humble opinion I have yet to hear any of the 60's bands and singers screeching yet. Cheerio.

Peter means GOOD LUCK. Thanks to all well-wishers from John Cher's and Audie Ng's FACEBOOK postings.

Hi Andy You are a great P.R. man! This latest article would serve as a reminder to all lovers of "Oldies" to drop by the National Library this Sunday afternoon after lunch. For the seniors it would be fun, as it always is, to take a nolstalgic trip down memory lane. For the younger audience, it would be nice to see the "Oldies" perform live, instead of just hearing it on the Brian Richmond show on Sunday mornings. Henry Chua has already warned us of potentially real bad accoustics. However Jerry Fernandez will be present to assist in whatever way he could to enhance the sound quality!

Look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday afternoon!

Cheers!

John Cher

Such a great post, Andy, lovely photos and I love Daniel Boone's song 'Beautiful Sunday'! :)

Hi John,
It's not a PR job, never meant to be. Just a love to "create something out of nothing" as you put it some time ago.

Some Seniors meet at coffee houses to discuss strategies of government. I'm not qualified to do that so I write about what I know little about, in the hope that my knowledge will expand as I go along.

With this post I found out about the acoustics at The Plaza. :-)

Hi Linda,

Thanks so much for liking my post. You know you have a lovely blog too. I hope my readers will migrate to yours sometimes to read it.
