Cabaret Night 2013 committee met for the first time last Sat, 29 Jun 2013 at Orchard Central. Leading most of the work to make this event a success and as entertaining as possible for ever guest is Mega Abdullah. He pieced together Jeffrey Gan who will provide all the live music (almost more tha 4 hours of live music) during the opening event. And he has also added the local DJ who would be playing all the dance music and memorable songs to keep us dreamy, nostalgic and romantic. Thank you Mega, we would not be able to coordinate all these work without your planning and running around. Well done, considering this is mainly a Hokkien/Mandarin Cabaret.
There is another group who has been working more than just hard. And these are the singers. If you know me, I cannot sing, neither can I dance. I cannot hear the difference between tempo and a tune. But, there is a very capable lady who has made this possible, and she has come forward to accept the role of recruiting the singers, putting them through practice sessions and sequencing the songs. I dare not try to figure out what are all the pains, criticisms and arguments she has faced so far, with the group and committee. She is Judy Lim. She is fluent with Hokkien and Mandarin songs. Besides, Judy, we also have Janet Chan who loves singing, and helps Judy out with the Cantonese and Mandarin segments. HI Tian Soo and Lai Fong, our two co-owners of this refurbished Cabaret, these are the two ladies who have started work way more than two months ago.
Now, let’s look at our line up of Singers. Many of the singers will be flying in from Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo to bring us an evening of good fun and sheer music delight. Let’s bring them in. Please give them our applause for coming on stage.
