The Beatz Rehearse

by Reedz on September 28, 2008

About a year ago, I did a post about The Beatz, a local band I had caught while covering the Law Society Soirée. Last night, I had a chance to catch up with them again, while they were rehearsing at their Jerudong studio for some upcoming gigs (will post the dates and venues shortly) some of which are taking place across the border in Miri.

The band has undergone some changes since I met them last year, particularly the vocalists, one of whom is a talented lass (below) who’s performed with the likes of Agnes Monica and Krisdayanti in Indonesia.

Unlike my friends at Projectunes, who come up with their own material, The Beatz are more of a cover band “with an excellent repertoire of songs from evergreens to the most recent rockin’ tunes.” This is one band to look out for!

Better than the Yamaha YDP-625 for sure!

Great to see Grudges still rockin’ all this while. Lots of fond memories in Studio 2, covering stuff from Led Zeppelin and Santana to No Doubt and Stereophonics with my ragtag band. Ajis and Chicco & Co. keep it running yeah. Loyal customer here. Thanks AB, for posting this.

That was my first time at the studio heheh… I didn’t even know it existed until that night. No doubt I shall be dropping in from time to time to catch up with the Grudges scene 🙂

I thought this place looked familiar. Hehe. Don't let "Rock Band" kill the rock band!
