November 29 2015 - Kuantan River Blues at the White Horse Tavern

Although Kuantan River Blues (KRB) wasn't even featured on the poster, that did not stop them from giving the audience everything they had during their hour-long set at the White Horse Tavern in Amp Walk Mall, Ampang. This time around, KRB featured slapmeister Zack on bass and vocals. As such, the lineup for this gig was Shafie (guitar/vocals), CA (guitar/vocals), Along (guitar), Zack (bass/vocals) and Fendi (drums). KRB performed some of their favorite covers, which included songs by Joe Bonamassa, SRV, Gary Moore and Robben Ford. For the encore, Zack kindly obliged to entertain all present with a raw and ballsy version of Skynyrd's "Call me the Breeze." Heck, the guy can sing! 

Meanwhile, headliners Purple Haze, Sons of Adam, Public Voice and Adnan Aziz wowed the audience with an exciting selection of classic rock and blues numbers, all delivered with pure guts and conviction. After all the bands had concluded their sets, it was time for an open jam session that lasted late into the night. All too soon, it was time for KRB to pack up their gear and head back to Kuantan.

Many thanks to Sons of Adam Entertainment (esp. Abg Lan) and the White Horse Tavern management for giving KRB the opportunity to perform in Kuala Lumpur. KRB also deeply appreciates the tireless efforts of Jack (SUK bass player), Basri and Dyda, who were at the White Horse not only to give them much-needed support, but also play the role of crew. Love you guys!
