Mi Lu Bing (Lost Soldiers)
24 Apr 09, Fri
Esplanade Recital Studio, 9.30pm
Their mix of youthful, melodic power Mando-pop-rock, easy-listening folk-pop, snazzy songwriting and boyish charm got them the overall champion in MediaCorp Channel U’s 2006 SuperBand contest.
They are Mi Lu Bing (Lost Soldiers) – lead singer/ guitarist Nic, keyboardist Weiqi and drummer Sam – and they have sung the theme and sub-theme songs of hit TV serials A Million Treasures and The Golden Path respectively, and released their catchy, slickly-produced, self-titled debut in 2007 to rave reviews, gold-status sales and a 2007 Singapore Hits Award’s “Best Newcomer Award” win.
Get a taste of great music made in Singapore as the rising pop-rock stars deliver Mandarin and English songs in this first-ever Mi Lu Bing concert!
(60mins, no intermission)

On the side note,
Its usually NOT my practice to post music concerts/gigs on the international acts on my music blog since they are usually more well-known by people around the globe than our own Singaporean musicians. Exceptions are that
1. They are freaking good musicians that its a must to see them!!!
2. Event Organisers/Promoters requesting me to put the music gigs/concerts
3. Events which help to build and improve musicianship skills of the local musicians in Singapore
4. Music Collaboration with local musicians
If u guys notice, my focus is on promoting Singapore Quality Music and Musicians.
All good Singapore musicians residing in Singapore or overseas musicians who are Singaporeans, my platform is here for u guys to promote your own music on my blog.
For those who have news/videos or pictures on Singapore musicians & music, do email to me.
