On this last day of 2014, we would like to welcome Alvyn Cheong to the Pantheon Percussion family!
Alvyn has been one of our strongest supporters these two years and is a regular in the local live music scene. Check out what he has to say about himself:
“I bang on the drums and scream into the microphone for “PennyLane : The Band” every Wednesday at Wala Wala Bar & Café, and I hit a wooden box really hard while screaming into the microphone every Saturday at Harry’s Bar.
I started playing drums 12 years ago because the only available arcade machine was Percussion Freaks Version 3. I was attracted to the loud sounds, flashing lights, and the fact that I only had to pay $2 each time I wanted to embarrass myself and fail songs in front of my ah beng bretheren. It’s been a long journey, and I’d like to think that I’ve come a long way since those days.
Behind the drumset, I use Pantheon Percussion 5A drumsticks as well as two Pantheon Percussion snares – a 14×6.5 Maple Solid Shell and a 12×6.5 10ply Maple snare.
When I’m not behind the drumset being a nuisance, I work my charm on my corporate clients with LinkedIn, where I work as the Team Lead for the Sales Development Team based here in Singapore. I am a LinkedIn Evangelist, and I truly believe that social media will change the world and how we approach opportunities.
My aim is to see a larger representation of musicians on LinkedIn, and to see musicians utilize LinkedIn as a tool for networking, as well as a tool for professional branding.”
