In conjuction with the Good Times Music Festival 2017, which is organised by Musictoxin Productions 音樂通勝, there are 16 performances presented by local musicians in Malaysia since 23 September 2017 at various locations.
I had the opportunity to attend one of the performances presented by SAB Acappella Band (SAB) (formerly known as The Summer Singers)’s Rewind Concert 2017 at Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) on 29 October 2017.
The Concert started at about 20:15. When we arrived, we checked in by scanning the QR Code sent to our e-mail before we queue to enter the hall. It was free seating, so we sat at the left column, third row.
SAB performed 15 sets of songs (one to three songs in each set) that evening, with a 15 minutes break in between.
The performers for the evening (演出歌手):
soprano | Caynes C 謝婉茜
mezzo soprano | Serene SeeYan
alto | Zheat-Huei Teoh
tenor | Ahde Seng
bass | Questyeong Yeong
vp | Kim Sng
I always believe that showing is better than telling in certain situations; so instead of telling you how good they are, I am going to show you three of my favourite sets 🙂 [The videos are trimmed and shared with the permission of one of SAB’s singers] (My apology for the poor quality of the videos)
The first that I am going to share with you, is the song 致爸妈; it is a tribute to the elders, especially parents, who have journeyed through life together with us, a very meaningful song:
The second song is, Hallelujah; SAB sang this in the original A Cappella way (raw A Cappella – instead of individual dynamic mics, only two (2) condenser mics were used) ~ unplugged within the unplugged. I personally love this the most 🙂
Lastly, is 勇气 (another favourite song of mine); just to share with you the voices of all the members 🙂 This member by the name of Ahde is not in the E-Book, apparently he is now playing a supporting role in SAB but still performing with the Band from time to time.
I love the way SAB engaged with the audience. Firstly, they played a mini quiz and the winner got a gift! 😄 Next, a singer invited an audience (whom I believe was his friend) on stage while singing. After the break, they started singing from the entrance and walked their way up to the stage, interacting with the audience along the way. Lastly, they celebrate birthday with October and November babies by inviting them on stage, sang for them, gave them a gift & took a we-fie with them 🙂
This is also a good time to snap some photos for memories:
Also, since the Good Times Music Festival is still ongoing, you can attend one of the performances too! For more information, you can check their Facebook Page 🙂
I had a good time listening to the songs performed by SAB, and I hope you enjoyed it too 🙂
Thank you for dropping by and have a good day 🙂
