I Have A Date With Acoustic Heaven


Long time no blog!

Sorry, guys, I have been so busy with work that I only got to resume my paparazzi role lately when I heard that the Pop Pop man is up to something exciting with his line-up of pretty singers, guitarists and pianists and .... AKG microphones....

Two years ago, they had a breath-taking and tear-jerking (I really mean it. I saw many ladies weeping after the concert) mini-concert at Evelyn Hii's famous No Black Tie, the only bona-fide jazz club in Malaysia. Ever since, a string of unfortunate events have made them unable to continue their momentum for a while.

Recently reformed, they are now even better and are ready to take on the world again. I was told they aim for DFP (Dewan Philharmonik Petronas), then Esplanade then Star Hall in HK. Ambitious people, indeed.

I am, of course, talking about the 2 Virgins and 1 Gay.... opps... I mean, 2 Voices and 1 Guitar, the local trio featuring the petite Winnie Ho, the Astro Champ, our own guitar maestro, Roger Wang, and the mysterious new "V", reputed to be the best Vocalist in Malaysia.

Currently recording their sophomore album, slated to be out before the KLIAV in July 24th, 2V1G is calling a mini-concert together with their label mate and highly-anticipated jazz duo, JZ8.

The long-awaited JZ8, featuring jazz painist Tay Cher Siang and Vocalist Lydia Chew, is also going to release their debut album next month. I have heard the demo and I can tell you that, it is gonna break the record in sales and bring fame to Malaysia!

According to the Pop Pop man, the double-bill mini concert is going to be "a night of exquisite, soul-soothing and heartfelt acoustic music, played in the most intimate setting". Hmm... you can trust him on that.

Here's the details:

Date: 17th July 2010 (Saturday)
Venue: Bentley Music Auditorium (Mutiara Damansara)
Time: 9pm-11pm
Ticket Price: RM60-Rm80 (not fixed yet)
Capacity: 400 pax (free seating, first come first served)
Reservation: poppopmusic@yahoo.com or sms 012-2083790

I am going to treat all my staff in my company to this rare opportunity to watch the two fantastic acts competing with each other!

I was also told Roger Wang will be using the custom made Stage III Concepts guitar cable that Luis Fuente (the boss of Stage III) made specially for him.... can imagine how gorgeous the guitar tone will be!

I guess after the intensity of World Cup in June, what better way to relax and chill with this intimate and heartwarming double-bill mini-concert.
