Are they pop, jazz or classical? You can’t really box them in. They are the Lorong Boys!

Bursting onto the scene in 2014 when they performed impromptu on the MRT, their unique style and versatility has brought them to perform across stages, from Maduro Jazz Lounge to starring in the President’s Star Charity.

Showcasing their latest work, including original film scores that were created in a reverse-ekphrastic process, these scores roam evocatively across styles as varied as jazz, funk, and modern classical. Combined with their great chemistry and presence, you can be assured that it will be an evening of great music, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Lorong Boys

Lorong Boys are award-winning Singaporean musicians who are equally at home playing on the hallowed stage of a concert hall as well as in the heartland. Lorong Boys are adept at styles ranging from classical music to Broadway hits, from Top 40 pop hits to jazz standards. Founded in 2014, the band was born out of a deep friendship and a common love for music when David Loke (violin), Joachim Lim (drums and percussion), Jonathan Shin (piano, guitar and composing) and Rit Xu (flute) were all schoolmates at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music at National University of Singapore. Being bold and innovative, they have toured Indonesia and appeared on almost every TV channel and radio station in Singapore. They were also featured in the SG50 The Gift of Song music video, and have worked with home-grown artists including Inch Chua, Nathan Hartono, and The Sam Willows.

Flock at The Nest Featuring Mervin Wong

25 March 2022

Sound artist/electronic producer Mervin Wong performed music from his latest release, the four-track EP, Akasha. Originally presented as a live listening experience, it was borne out of a collaboration with multidisciplinary artists Joshua Tirados Suarez and Sarah Isabelle Tan who work with solid volumes and fluid fabrics. An all-encompassing experience, it was driven by performance and enhanced by object, texture, tone and place.

Mervin wong

Raised in chambers of string, Mervin Wong took a moment to recognise the viola as his truest limb. The tectonic shift to this deeper, more enduring register has shaped his foray into electronic music-making. In service of resonance, every grain is burnished to the bone. His sounds return to matter, where footsteps span light years. Mervin Wong is a performer, violist, composer, and electronic producer. He is an artist deeply dedicated to the shared experience of sound.
