|Oldies But Goodies with Eric, Irene, Ioleen, Audie and Patrick.|
From left stands Eric Chia experienced lead guitarist, Irene Yap former recording artiste last seen and heard fronting Locomotion, and Ioleen Chia who plays the drums like Ringo but sings like Paul. The guy on bass guitar needs no introduction. Boss of The Silver Strings and now this band, Audie Ng still leads the pack. On the extreme right is Patrick Chan who strums and sings with the personality of a tough Texan cowboy.

|In the heat of the beat.|
When she came over to the bar to join me and her husband Freddy for a breather, drummer *Ioleen burst into flames and gave her own rendition of I Saw Her Standing There. Previously with the first Singapore all-girls band Tepees this petite lady had the house thumping with the song while a group of seniors behind me stood up and screamed throughout the Beatles' number.
|Where The Boys Are|
Cool Audie with his signature million dollar smile kept the band rolling throughout the night while lead Eric controlled the frets in fierce concentration as melodies flowed for an unforgettable evening of oldies but goodies.
A thank you to Freddy and Irene for the cranberry juice and accompanying me at the Club D Connection Lounge's comfortable bar. Well done guys. Encore performance soon?
*Ioleen Chia is a busker at the Orchard Road area. Check her out!
