Their versatility shows in the music they produce and perform. They have a repertoire of pops in English, Mandarin and Cantonese with a large fan base in Hong Kong and most of South East Asia.
The Wynners are a Hong Kong vocal and instrumental quintet formed in 1973. The line-up included Alan Tam and Kenny Bee (vocals), Bennett Pang (guitar), Danny Yip (bass guitar) and Anthony Chan (drums).
The group sang exclusively in English when they first started and recorded mainly covers of popular songs from the West. In 1975, they collaborated with James Wong, a songwriter, lyricist, director and released a movie, Let's Rock with original Cantonese songs for the soundtrack. It was early Cantopop with simple, light-hearted lyrics in colloquial style.
Before their success in the movie, the group was already one of the most popular teen idol groups in H.K. Their first studio album, Listen to the Wynners, released in 1974, was a commercial success. It led on to shows with TVB , the Wynners Specials in 1975 and two more films, Gonna Get You in 1976 and Making It in 1977.
The Wynners disbanded in 1978, with Alan Tam and Kenny Bee embarking on successful solo careers, but they never officially broke up and reunited periodically even till today.
