17th May 2014: SACHIE AMIRA @ THE BEE, PUBLIKA.
This would be the first time I’d see this pop/jazz/soul diva perform as herself (as opposed to standing in for Dotters’ Division when their vocalist is not free, or being a Shakey Shakey with Irma.)
Y’all got that right, we at The Bee, Publika!
Herman Ramanado on bass…
…and Anthony Muthurajah on drums!
Christine on backup vocals, on the left, not merely harmonizing but getting some powerhouse lines of her own.
Joelle on keys.
Dean Sim amidst the chaos, who rips out beautiful roaring guitar solos. Love his guitar tone and feel! (Also, them PRS quilted-maple tops are always pretty.)
She is quite the infectious, bubbly personality on stage. Very fun to watch! (And if that’s not enough, go get sucked into that Internet trap that is Vine, whether her videos or those she has revined.)
Also, it was her birthday!
Somebody keeps moving the bear above the side entrance. I noticed.
