17th February 2014: “Radio Reboots” featuring Zalina and Zalila Lee, Nish Tham, and Melina William at No Black Tie. (Yes, the event page says 18th, because it was a two-evening thing.)
Melina on bass and harmonized vocals!
Nish Tham on keyboard and the rare vocal solo!
Zalina Lee on vocals and between-song entertainment!
Zalila Lee on percussion!
The theme was Radio Reboots – by that, they’d remix songs together in an unexpected fashion. For example, they’d start with the bassline to Queen – Under Pressure and segue to Feminin – Untukmu, or use Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication‘s bassline for another song.
Interestingly, there was not a guitar in the whole band.
Zalina is quite the entertainer! Love her stage presence.
Nish sang Boyz II Men – Water Runs Dry! Always a rare delight to see her sing.
I remember them doing covers of TLC – Waterfalls, KoRn – Freak On A Leash, John Lennon – Imagine, and an awesome The Carpenters medley with Rainy Days And Mondays, Sing A Song, and Close To You! I know this because I bootlegged their performances, heh.
Zalila being goofy.
Yes, they are sisters! I could not stop being amazed at how much Zalina’s gestures, expressions and even sense of humor are amazingly like Zalila’s!
At the end of the night, we went to the mamak nearby and spotted this simply handsome cat.
