Yes, revealing Mellow Motif at G Hotel ;)

It has been another long day for me today. Working on a lot of tasks and slowly feel that I have been overwhelm by a lot of works (At that moment, I hope that I got a lot of hands and brain for me to accomplish all these, but wait, that sounds like alien right? ~:| ) I have wrote the to-do lists on the white board behind me so that I won't forget what I will need to complete. :"P Anyway, I am glad that I am back at home resting and doing this blog post now. :) Finally I've completed all the photo processing for the Mellow Motif (Natasha Patamapongs [lead vocal] located from Thailand and Eugene Ang [piano] from Singapore)performance at G Hotel Penang. :) I am very glad about this. At least now I could do a proper sharing to all of you on what have been taken during the last Saturday.

More photos after the jump...

Getting ready

Actually that is the first time I went into the G-Spot at G Hotel. I was invited by Beh for this and I am really glad that I could made it to this performance (Even though I just finish a seminar in the evening). I just got to know that the performance is organized by GR8 Performing Arts along side with G-Hotel. The jazz group that is performing on that night is Mellow Motif. (Sounds kinda mellow but it is not at all) ;). I was greet by the folks from the GR8 Performing Arts as well as Gary Joseph Gideon (He is the drummer of that night). :)

Anyway it has been a while that I didn't entered a smoky room. (Oh yeah, this is like the 11th time I go to a pub/lounge) getting myself ready with my gears and ready for that night performance. Walking around inside the G-Spot and snapping here and there. (And kinda worry that someone will come over and punch me for photographing them in there :"P - I am just kidding).

Anyway the performance started with the band getting ready on the stage, and heated up the atmosphere with their solo performance and finally invited the vocalist of the night, Natasha Patamapongs (She is from Thailand) :) to the stage. A lovely lady in deed who has enjoyed the Penang food very much.. :) And for the band, we have Gary Joseph Gideon on the drums. Jonathan Chen (Ocean of Fire) on Bass, Abd. Mutallib on Percussion and finally Wilson Quah and Eugene Ang on keyboard.

I think the night has been great. I could not imagine myself shooting photos for a jazz band. What I could say is that I am excited by the atmosphere as well as the live performance that night. Wondering around the stage (and hopefully I have not interrupt anyone enjoying the band performance that night). :"). Anyway, the rest of the photos taken as below... ;)

Good night people

Alright, that's all for tonight. :) I hope that you all enjoy the series so far. I really enjoy the performance, the groove, the atmosphere and the crowds that night. It is just awesome! :) But one thing I recalled is that I forget to get the CD that Mellow Motif sold that night. :( If not I might be able to grab one CD with the signature on that day. (Darn me...I am just too focused on the photographing :( ). Anyway, I would like congrats Mellow Motif for such a great and successful performance at G-Spot, G Hotel Penang. :)
