“Myself with OSSUARY, opening band for VADER on 14th July 2014 @ The Substation.
Thanks to Pantheon Percussion 5B drumsticks & 14 x 6.5 acrylic snare.”
The show featured Benny Green, Dezron Douglas, Andrew Lim as well as the brilliantly straight-shooting Soh Wen Ming.
The accolades and praises just kept pouring in for days after the show and it was certainly a heart-warming experience for Mr Soliano. He was showing them to me with joy: certainly we will see more performances from him in the months to come. Such fire in him now…🙂
The show was almost a ‘generational hand-off’ of sorts too. When Wen played alongside Mr Soliano, the both of them spoke the same tongue (musically speaking) with their sticks and brushes.
Our pioneers are quietly handing over the baton to the younger players slowly and surely, ushering in a new age of technical ability, innovation and creativity. We need legacy events with these giants for the younger generation of drummers to build their voices upon.
Many thanks to Singapore Drum Fest and Fest Events International for such a bonding and amazing event. Amazing work.
