If you work in Central, escape the hustle and bustle, come and immerse yourself in a lunchtime concert of live jazz music. As Miles Davis once said, “Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life.”
Presented by the Fringe Club as one of the programmes of “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project, Jazz Lunch showcases an impressive jazz combo in the classy setting of the Fringe Dairy. The combo includes professional jazz musicians and young emerging talents who all appreciate the opportunity to gain exposure, showcase their musicianship and improve their skills.
From July to August, singer-songwriter Shandy Gan will be sharing her jazz music, joined by her musician friends.
Wed 18 July 1PM
Shandy has invited Jazz Master Ted Lo (piano) for a duo performance.
Shandy Gan x Glass Band lite*
The debut single by singer-songwriter Shandy Gan, “I remember the…”, was used at the end of every episode of Season 4 of the popular TV drama “iPartment” in China. Her debut EP, “To Bossa”, from which the single was taken, was released in 2014 and was well received, especially within the Bossa Nova genre.
Also in 2014, Shandy made her debut film appearance, playing a cameo role in the Hong Kong indie movie “Dot 2 Dot”, a nostalgic piece tracking the changes in the city from the 1970s to today. Four of her songs, including her cover of “Early Train 早班火車” by the legendary rock band Beyond, were used on the film’s soundtrack. She has been very active at music events, performing at Hong Kong Cyclethon 2015, MINI Cooper MINI Live 2015 and the Strawberry Music Festival Beijing, and had her first mini-tour to Tokyo in 2016. Shandy is signed to Sony Music Hong Kong, and is one of the members of the company’s singer-songwriter platform, “O.U.R. Works”.
“Glass Band” is the name she come up with, representing the group of dear musicians playing live with her. It symbolises the beautiful glassware carrying and backing her up – “Shandy”, which is also synonym of a drink. In the occasion of performing as duet or trio, “lite*” will be remarked.
