Set in a live setting, audiences will get to groove to all-time favourite tunes from legendary stars, including Nat King Cole, The Beatles, The Foundations, Nancy Sinatra, Barbara Streisand, and more. Aside from spoiling you with a musical treat, there will also be an open bar, handled by celebrity bartenders Joe Hasham OAM and Lawrence Selvaraj—you’re going to be in good hands for the night.

The talented group of vocalists includes Joel Wong, Lai Suk Yin, Omar Ali, Rachel Liu, Serene Chng, and Vale V Wong; directed by Ian Chow, and backed by a five-piece band: Jing Xiuan, Lee Hui Yin, Coebar Abel, Alex Lee, and Iqbal R..
