Sign up for jazz and rock n roll this weekend
AFTER Curtain Raiser—a medley of live music, four original 10-minute short plays and dance, held last month—Nicholas Productions is ready with their second offering, this year, Mix’d Tape, a two-day concert. “On Saturday, we will give our spin to songs by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Fitzgerald, Robbie Williams and Michael Bublé. And for the first time we have renowned saxophonist Maarten Visser playing with us,” says Denver Anthony Nicholas, 36, the founder of Nicholas Productions. Sunday’s concert will be a tribute to music from the 60s to the 90s, covering artistes from the Carpenters and Cliff Richards to Kansas, Meatloaf and Queen. “This concert will have a lot of ensemble singing. So the audience can expect a whole lot of entertainment and amazing music,” he assures us.

As for the band members, there will be Maynard Grant on drums, Tim Elliot and Darren Netto on guitar, Anish Chacko on keyboard and Shaun Roberts on bass, besides Visser. Around 15 singers will also perform on both days. Admitting that the younger generation may not being clued into yesteryear numbers, Nicholas says, “Just be there to experience it, it’s the only way to be introduced to some great music by some of the world’s most renowned musicians.”
At Museum Theatre, on June 14 and 15, from 7 pm onwards. Details: 8939455166
