**********
One of the stories you will encounter on this blog, The Trekkers, whose lead guitarist is today a successful stock broker in California, USA.

                              Home Recording In 1963. Great Stuff !

A video story of four boys from the East Coast in Singapore aged 13- 15 years from Singapore who started a band in 1961 and played music for fun. They participated in many Talentime (talent quests) and charity shows. 

The guitars they carried were as big as their youngest members. The new style Fender guitars and amplifiers were not available in Singapore in the early 60's. 

The Trekkers members were George Wang ( Drums ), Charles Ng ( Rhythm Guitar ), William Tan ( Bass Guitar ) and Henry Gan ( Lead Guitar ). They played Ventures and Shadows music, Duane Eddy and music from the late Arthur Smith. 

Shindig was one of their favorite Shadows number. This recording was from a jam session at home in 1963.

Not again Andy ! Oh well " thanks" anyway. It did take me 50 years to write the story and finally to get the Youtube together on the Trekkers. A big " appreciation " to Andy and his blog for making this presentation possible ��

Thank you Henri. I think you deserve the accolade. I didn't put it up because you did not let me know nor send me one for publication.

Never mind. We work as a team, so appreciate too the work you put in.
