The Trials, Victories & Adventures of Los PaulOS

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ~ 1 John 4:18

Revival Update!!!

Yeah it's been a few weeks already.. And the GWBR (Great Wedding Band Revival) is on it's way.

We've had 3 practices so far or was it 4? All sponsored (@ the moment by the groom himself)
Very generous of him.. :)

All 3(or 4) practices were held at the ancient Black Widow studio, located above the 7-Eleven along Jalan Gasing next to St Francis Xavier Church. Every Thursday night. We've managed to find our drummer. I do hope he will be a permanent addition to the band. Steven Lai's his name.. and he learns fast.. powerful .. and really a cool dude.

For the moment, we've (or rather I) come out with "glamour names" just for the heck of it...

Christopher - Chris "Strings" McKhoo
Paul - Phat Fingers Paul
Steven - Rimshot Steven

Anyways, we've been playing a 3 piece band so far and it's been really cool. But I do miss that lead guitar at the moment. So all our practices have been without a lead guitarist/keyboardist.

Reasons for this...
Terence is getting married so we don't wanna bug him to before his wedding
Sekhar is also busy.
We hope to get the keyboardist and/or a lead guitarist in for the next practice onwards.

Our list so far is this

1. Every Breath You Take - The Police
2. Message In A Bottle - The Police

2. Kau Ilhamku - Man Bai (according to Chris, the groom is supposed to sing this)
3. Oye Como Va - Santana

The groom's brother, Shanker, will be singing a few songs... I wonder if the bride wants to sing as well? hmm ... Anyways... it's such a cool bunch of people to jam with... Nobody has time to take pictures....

p/s The Groom saw some of the suggestions.. and he vehemently protested in the SMS to me "No New Kids on the Block or Surface" ... Sorry Musical... he's the king of the day...

    Yeah, Kau Ilhamku rocks!

    Another suggestion - 'From This Moment' by Shania Twain - could be sung by the groom :)

    Ok Paul, you asked for it! Here are some song that I'd like to hear.

    Drift Away - The Allman Brothers Band (just a cool song for a band to play)

    Sweet Surrender - Bread (really great easy listening tune and probably appropriate for the ocassion too)

    Ain't Seen Love Like That - Mr. Big(a nice but seldom heard Mr. Big song)

    I'll Be - Edwin McCainThat's it... can't think of any more wedding-friendly tunes for now. :)
