So last night I went to watch the reunion of The New Minstrels - Together Again - at the Esplanade Concert Hall. I went mainly to support Adam, who was playing drums in the backing band.
It was a thoroughly entertaining, nostalgic trip. You could say that it was relief to hear people in a concert who really - and I mean, really - sing.
Though the set list was mostly composed of covers, the performance was well arranged with ambitious medleys of Burt Bacharach material, R&B classics and musicals. The group also performed a few of their originals, done in the 70s soft pop style which was clearly their forte.
Personally, I found the many testimonies interspersed throughout the concert very satisfying.
A memorable night...
