I have only downloaded what has been sent to me. Please do so if you wish them posted on this blog.

The Revival Band are back again. Let's have more of them after Kallang.

The Easy Beats with their two lady singers, one in a resplendent red gown and the other with boots that are made for walking.
60's recording stars, The Dukes, all looking smart in their fancy vests.

Jerry and The Neu Faces taking a breather during practice. It's one of the most recognised band in Singapore and current too.


The Beejays performed at the Kallang to much excitement and cheer.

The keyboard personality who sings Queen like no one can, Nicholas Stravens.


Name the song and he'll sing and play it for you. Michael Bangar, many songs, anytime.
A shot on stage, accompanied by a band of professionals, Andy the amateur singer. With Audie, Michael and Nick.


Rickie Chng focuses on what he has to deliver. 

Bossman, bassman, Audie Ng's been at it for 55 years plus. The Paul McCartney guitar is a new toy he acquired. 


John Cher collects friends like he does the different rhythms he plays on his drums, plenty of them. Just check out his Facebook.


Andy had a forceful backing from his bandmates. He thanks them for their superb accompaniment.


The Dukes with Zainal Abidin leading the group. Cool and comfy: that's Capt. Z.


Here's Cath Wee.  Her boots are made for walking and strutting the floor with The Easy Beats as she sings the Nancy Sinatra pop hit.


Red means danger, here comes the big man, Jerry Fernandez leading the Kallang pack that night with his powerhouse singing.


Jerry's band for many years, The Neu Faces provided the oomph for the festival. Closing number for this Christmas Festival, Feliz Navidad.


The Beejays have always been in the limelight, with their fab sound and stage performances. 


From the Easybeats, this lady in red named Jessica Koo, sultry and smooth, lighted up the stage that evening.


The Revival Band in resplendent black suits and matching silver buttons knocked the audience with their rock melodies.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the New Year greetings, and also a very Happy New Year 2018 to you too. The photos of the show were great and it looked like a very good night indeed. You covered all the artistes, while the hall and audience looked great in colour. So Audie has a Beatle bass now and he really looks occupied and having a ball playing it. Good to see the other bands also being part of the festive show and I must say well done to all of you.

Once again thanks.

Mike
