Gig Update this week: The KL HARDBOP BAND @ The Top Room


The gig at Top Room was a blast!!! The music was burning.. the band was burning...both nights, and we had a nice responsive crowd who (hopefully) enjoyed themselves! We played some real nice jazz tunes that most have not heard, and lots of David Gomes originals, and his arrangements!

By the way, just a quick update - The David Gomes Ensemble will be performing at the KL JAZZ FEST to be held on July 5th at the Istana Budaya! So do tell people about it, and come to the show.. support the jazz scene in Malaysia! (more details as it comes and I'll keep y'all posted)

Here are some pictures from the gig on Friday night. Enjoy!!
