It was a nostalgic night as the Golden Era of Hong Kong pop from the 1980s and 1990s was brought alive with a solid repertoire of smash hits, which also included classics such as Hey Jude, I Started a Joke and First of May, much to the delight of English speaking guests.

Besides being entertained by the music, the audience were kept laughing all the way with impromptu jokes that the singers cracked throughout the three-hour show. This tribute to the Four Heavenly Kings wrapped up with a powerful 10-minute medley of Cantopop hits.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend last night’s second concert, The Opulent Sounds of Shanghai, performed by Janet Lee and May Mow. They presented a repertoire of classic Shanghai jazz tunes, reminiscent of the famed Paramount Nightclub of Old Shanghai in the 1950s and 1960s.

In conjunction with the concerts, Andaman Group made a donation of RM300,000, shared equally among Ipoh schools, namely SJK(C) Sam Tet, SMJK Sam Tet and the Brother John Moh Foundation. The company’s Executive Chairman Datuk (Dr) Patrick Teoh and Managing Director Dato Sri (Dr) Vincent Tiew handed over the cheques in a simple, yet meaningful ceremony. Andaman Group also held similar charity concerts in 2011 and 2012, and raised RM300,000 a year for the same beneficiaries.
