ALLEYCATS : ISTIMEWA BUAT SINGAPURA
Alleycats is probably the most well-known band of all time in Singapore and Malaysia. Having reign the pop genre for the last 43 years, the group is still going strong with their last concert performance at Istana Budaya in September 2011.
Now for the first time in Singapore, Alleycats will be performing their own full 2-hour concert at the Concert Hall, Esplanade on Saturday, 14 Apr 2012. The Alleycats: Istimewa Buat Singapura kicks off Raistar Entertainment’s ‘Icons from Malaysia 2012 concert series’.
Probably the longest surviving pop band today. their over 40 all-time hits are a regular on radio waves and they count on 4 generations of fans. Formed in Penang back in 1968, the name ‘ALLEYCATS’ was chosen by their then manager Ronnie Chiang Kai Chok, who was putting the band together. They lived and use to hang out near an alley where there are many cats.
With Singapore-born M.Nasir behind the many evergreen songs of Alleycats, such as Hingga Akhir Nanti, Andainya Aku Pergi Dulu, Sekuntum Mawar Merah Sebuah Puisi, Senyumlah Kuala Lumpur, Setahun Sudah Berlalu and Nota Terakhir, it is no surprise that the 70s, 80s and 90s were dominated by Alleycats.
Alleycats has played a key role in the development of Malay music industry. With more than 27 album launches, this legendary and only resident band under Universal Music Malaysia is still on the prowl, with Dato David Arumugam as lead vocalist and iconic figure.
And who can forget their signature ending: “Terrrrima kasihhhh!”
