31st May 2015: SOUNDSTRUCK : FEST! at The Bee, Publika. Here’s They Forgot Jasmine!
Night Skies & Visions.
Cool bass stance.
I have a thing for triple-humbucker SG guitars.
A rather unique pickguard.
Solo this time.
Melinya Sarah DeRich, usually seen behind the sound console. Her one time sound engineer boss was drummer for Seven Collar T-Shirt.
Cool-looking purple pedal.
Omar on drums.
Vicky, the fill-in Crinkle Cut member, catching up with Korean dramas while playing keyboard.
She is right on point.
Always one fun performer to photograph.
Daniel comes up for a song.
Then came the open mic competition, with finalists battling it out to win the points of judges.
Here’s The Field Of Innocence/The F.O.I Band.
Lyanne Low Hui-Yi.
Spotted in the crowd: Tali Tgn, not to be confused with Tali Tan.
I missed Amrita Soon’s open mic performance. Here, Kelly Siew being a judge, gives her comments.
Kee Vern Lai.
Fuzzy was the last contestant.
They sang a special song…
…for an engagement proposal!
I was outside when the commotion happened so I missed the chance to get close, wide-angle shots.
An Honest Mistake.
Why is Darren Teh so shy?
A slightly different configuration…
…with Tomas on acoustic guitar instead of bass.
Then it was time to announce the winners, with Lyanne winning a cajon!
David Soh won a guitar.
Son Of A Policeman (SOAP).
This was a new lineup to me.
A familiar face.
For their song Maria, they all don fake moustaches.
Don’t know where his went.
Jee shows us that you don’t need a Keytar with a strap to rock out on stage. 61 keys beats any Keytar, anyway.
Takaki guest drums.
Daniel Wong, emcee and organizer.
They did a cover of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers theme song, awesome!
A deejay ended the night.
