First time as a video host at last weeks event. Kinda weird being the one asking questions instead of answering, but I had some tips from the pros Simon Yin and Desmond So and think I pulled it off the best I could.I'll be doing the rest of the season for Music Rocks The Valley, so if you're there, I'm gonna get you Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbEVYjEnvyo
My friends it has been WAY too long.. in person and the blog sense.I do miss the days of when I first joined alive not dead, all the parties and events during that time, and most of all, meeting the alive crew and community. Bumping into old friend Raffi mcEtchy the other day reminded me of that, and it also reminded me THAT I REALLY NEED TO UPDATE MY BLOG.So my last blog I was writing about graduating. Ever since graduating, as I told Raffi, I've been working full-fledged on my solo debut album. Over 20 new songs completed already, mostly written by me, some written by my mentor Sam Hui, and some are covers. Can't really reveal too much at this moment without spoiling, but we're still in the process of handpicking which songs, photos, and lyrics to use. On that note, I've learned that writing Chinese lyrics can take quite a long time!What kind of music? I'd say acoustic pop/rock, with my old school Elvis/Beatles influence, yet I still add a lot of modern elements. I find it very exciting and can't wait to launch it all, say goodbye to the Elvis shadow and hello to the BIRTH OF JUSTIN! All at the same time, I still train with Sam and tour with him. We did 4 nights at the HK colliseum not long ago, where Sam also announced news of my album. The shows were fun, especially since my part was perform as one of the boys along with my brothers Ryan and Scott:Then Sam comes out after our part and we all do "半斤八兩":The shows were so fun, Scott and I played so much with the audience, he shoved his diamond studded mic into their faces whilst I threw silky ties at them!Our other brother Jin also came by everyday just to hangout, he also brought us awesome eggtarts and roasted goose! How thoughtful!:Jamming backstage:I was also stoked to meet Gigi, she's such a beautiful lady, very well spoken and kind hearted:We then took the same show to Malaysia last weekend for 2 nights! AMAZING time.. the 2nd show was epic, for it was the first time that the audience didn't want to leave even after the long encore section! So with the stadium lights all on, and with everyone in their casual clothes, Sam goes on again with his guitar and the crowd goes nuts. Eventually we all run up on there for a grand finale with "財神到". (I think I'm going to save the Malaysia concert and pics for the next blog!)Bumping up to more recently, I've been chosen to perform every night during "Music Rocks The Valley" at the Happy Valley Racecourse, which is where I ran into Raffi. We've done the first night out of three already, and it was a great show! I wanted to do songs that the drunken gamblers and international visitors could sing along to whilst they wait between the horse races, therefore I chose "Twist and Shout" and "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz. I think Raf has some footage somewhere?G.E.M. was the other artist for the night, what an amazing voice she has apart from being oh so cute! Here we are during soundcheck:Some pics during showtime:I'll be there June 13 and 20 performing Bruno Mars, The Beatles, Elvis and more, come hang out if you can! Also, I'm video hosting, so if you see me chase you with a mic, don't be afraid! To finish of this blog, here are some behind the scenes pics for my album, enjoy!:-Just
Hello everybody! I thought it was about time to update my blog at dinner tonight.IT has been a LONG time indeed. Would like to let you know that Elvis is doing good.What's been going on? Somewhere along the way I finished my double degree with flying colours! (I'm pretty booksmart too you know?). I've been romancing. Dealing with family drama (who hasn't), and most importantly, keeping my head in the music game.Will not reveal what's to come, however I can let you know, be prepared to see less Elvis, and MORE JUSTIN!! Anyway, will be going to Guangzhou next week to perform in my mentor's show, will be sure to post up pics and vids!Miss all you guys up on here!Just
Hey guys, If you're around HK on May 7, come to Skylark in Central for another night of true rock n roll! Check out the groovy poster they made for meHope to see you there.Cheers,Just
Hey guys, SURPRISE!Been a long time huh?I'd like to say hello all of you again, and here's a little treat for you..My entry for the Nokia App Competition:Check it out, it might apply to you!Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EelA-As9Z_YPeace and respect,Just
Hey guys,Thanks to all of you that came to support, we had a full house at skylark! Sweated my behind off real good, wearing a bling bling jacket in the spotlight!Four American ladies were sitting front row, one of them said she loved my jacket and wanted one! I told her it's my own design of an Elvis style jacket, as opposed to a replica of one he wore, and she said, "I know, I'm a fashion designer, and I also dated one of Elvis' bodyguards!"WOWI'm digging for pics and vids to share with you.The show was so good that, skylark wants to do a bigger show coming soon!Hope more of you guys can make it! BTW NOKIA is our new sponsor! They're coming out with so many new phones, trying to compete with the latest iphone and android handsets, and although I'm a total android fan, some of the latest designs are really appealing. Check out one of the latest models: quad-speaker packing and futuristic looking X7:Nokia always do good with battery life and durable designs.. however the symbian software just seems to be a step behind iphone and android.. I've gotta play with them a bit more to really make a conclusion though. It really depends on what you need a mobile phone for. For basic calling and texting, nokia provides some of the best looking phones I reckon!Check out the link under my profile for their latest..or worst.. if you're into tech and gadgets like me.Okay show photos and vids coming soon!-Just
Hey guys! I think it's about time to update this blog, really make it alive, not dead.. hee hee!Update, I've been working hard on finishing up my well tired and over it university double degree in communications and management, just finished my second last semester of exams a few weeks ago. Hope they went well!At the same time, I've also been working hard at the art of writing songs, as well as producing/mixing them. My passion for sound design and audio gear is as strong as ever. So what else is new?One of my best buds Patrick Cheung (aka MR. ASS) got MARRIED!Check out this groomsmen pic:Fastforwarding and skipping major details from the past few months, the latest and the greatest, I've been booked to do my Elvis act at Skylark, a really cool live music club in Central.Here is the poster:I'm doing 2 sets with a live band, and you'll be sure to find me doing a full on hip gyrating lip curling performance of the biggest Elvis songs. Looking forward to the night, hope to see a lot of AnD friends over there! It's been a while since we all got together! If you can't make it, I'll be sure to get some coverage of the night and post it up here!Shout out to all my long time no type AnD friends out there!-Just
Ah and here it is..So I have a nickname for everyone.. Most of everyone. I just can't figure out one for Mr. Patrick Chow: He calls me.. Hunny bear.. if you haven't heard.And he calls Scott.. Honey b*tch.(He's obsessed with carebears btw.)I've been calilng him Chowpatty, and Gaypatty for a while.. but I want something more distinct.I'd like something not to do with Patrick.. for there are too many around us already..So I'm open for suggestions..BTW he wants me to call him "mother bear".. . . . . . I'm thinking about Chowy.What do you think?-Just
