Special Performances By:

FingerFunk (@fingerfunkparty)

Fingerfunk is an R&B/Hip Hop quartet. There’s a crooner, a spitter, a neo soul and a fingerpad. We make beats, throw some words and lines, and occasionally take solos. That’s pretty much it. It’s real fresh though. Just take a listen. Helps that some of the boys look good too.

Coming Up Roses (@cominguprosessg)

Weaving their songs out of their adolescent experiences, alt-rock/shoegaze quartet Coming Up Roses balances the worlds of child-like innocence and idealism with the revelations that come with adulthood. Combining elements of pop, grunge, heavy-metal and shoegaze, the band manifests their emotions through the use of evocative vocal melodies and expansive sonic textures.

Led by vocalist-bassist Emily Sera, and completed by guitarists Darius Oon, Lorenzo Romero and drummer Bruce Tan, Coming Up Roses recalls the likes of Wolf Alice and Sonic Youth.

Simon Yong (@simonyongmusic)

Simon Yong is a Singaporean guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and producer. He is known for his work with progressive rock band Zero Sequence, Shirlyn & The UnXpected, and more recently on his debut solo instrumental album 'Alien Stole My Whiskey' (2013).

Till date, the album has acclaimed praises from notable Singapore musicians including jazz pianist Jeremy Monteiro, guitarist Addy “Cradle” Rasidi, singer-songwriter Patrick Chng, and keyboard maestro Mayuni Omar.

General Lee (@wearegenerallee)

General Lee is a Singapore-based rock and roll band, a throwback to the sounds of the rip-roaring counterculture era. Inspired by archaic, raw and vamp-driven music, their songwriting draws on historical events and local folklore to shine a light on their home country. Hard-driving bass-lines and authoritative drumming provide the backdrop for swaggering vocals and raucous guitar, covering the musical ground from slashing slide riffs and swampy blues to greasy funk and rockabilly train beats. 

Addy Cradle (@addycradleofficial)

Addy recorded and released his second instrumental album, entitled TRANSCENDENCE – LEGEND OF RYU WURI in 2017. This album comes with original songs and stories, all created and written by Addy.

To date, Addy has been performing with Singapore's top local veteran band, Jive Talkin' since 2001.
