Jimmy Appudurai-chua All You Need Is Love


The Silver Strings were at the SIA Club at Changi last night, 17th March 2017. Drummer John Cher who had partly organised the jam session invited Audie Ng, Rickie Chng and myself to the meet. Veronica came with other friends.
Rickie, Audie, Veronica, Andy and John enjoying the jam session. Check posters behind us.

It was a get together for former Singaporean Jimmy Appadurai Chua, the man of the moment. Jimmy who lives in the UK showed his guitar prowess when he lead the evening's group with hits from The Shadows accompanied by drummer John and others. 

A Blues man playing Shadows. That was a sight to see and hear.

Freddie Kang who was from The Thunderbirds sang a few Cliff Richard songs to close the deal. Derek Mc Cully from The Tornados provided a solid performance with a few Shadows melodies too.

What I love about the venue are the various posters that bedeck the walls of the Music Room. There are two of these beauties which caught my eye. One is a quote from Plato and the other from The Beatles. Both sayings are significant to the evening in question: Music and Love. You can't have one without the other.

A personal thanks to Rickie Chng for driving us all the way to Changi to join in the session. And Richard Toh for the photographs.

Good morning Andy. For a senior you work faster than The Flash! You put some people half your age to shame.. haha. What else can I say, you are a model for all seniors to emulate! It would have been wonderful if you could join us for a few songs but nvm, the next time.


Thanks for making time to join us and for all your kind remarks about the evening.

As always, all the best to you!

God bless!
