It was the third time Santana graced our tiny island but it was my first time seeing him and his wonderful team of band mates in action. Well known for pioneering rock, latin music and jazz fusion since the 1960s, the composition of his music just blew me away. The tunes that were familiar to me were just Black Magic Woman, Oye Como Va, Maria Maria and Smooth.
At any one time, there were around 10 band members on stage, including the drums, timbales, congas, trombone, trumpet, bass, guitars, keyboard, vocals etc. The wonderful layering of 3 percussions topped by melody from the wind instruments, the keyboard, vocals and most importantly, the guitar lines from Carlos Santana himself.
Date: 27th Dec 2012
Band: Zsa + Claire + Charmaine

Central Singapore CDC together with Ang Mo Kio GRC and Sengkang West YECs are organising a youth outreach event that aims to encourage youth volunteerism. One highlight is our first ever online contest called “GET OUT! 2012 People’s Band Competition” where bands have a chance to win attractive prizes and cut their own studio single. If you know of any friends or interest groups who are in a band, simply visit our Facebook or Website and “share” GET OUT! 2012 with them!
Most importantly, we want to invite YOU to GET OUT! and join us at Marina Bay. You can expect an evening of fun where an audio mob, flea market, food kiosks and live performances awaits you. There will also be free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, while stocks last!Thank you and we hope to see you there!
As some of you might have known or haven't known, I happen to have the privilege to play in Assault! And I just want to express my gratitude to Cynical Sounds for inviting us to play and for all the fans who came down early to catch our set!
Moving on to the first band over at the Powerhouse, A Town In Fear, this guys kickoff the start of a truly Hardcore night. The stage presence of Hardcore bands never fail to impress me and this guys are no different. A proud representation of the passion of local musicians.
Day 1 of Baybeats consisted of a largely local line-up but still holds much promise. Only having managed to reach the festival during the Godzilla set at the Powerhouse, this group of young teenagers with a median age of 15 proved to hold lots of potential. Tejo D'Cruz on lead vocals and guitars, despite having the smallest build on the stage holds plenty of presence on the stage and worked the crowd like he does it for a living! Their musicality is still far from perfect but keep your eyes on these guys in the near future!
