What makes a band rocckkk?

Had a little ex-Monash gathering with Tracy and Eddie last night at Wala Wala, Holland V (and Sharan - my colleague). Tracy as usual was fashionably late and Eddie and myself spent a good 15 minutes trying to debate if the Tracy I knew was the Tracy he knew who had a white Aussie boyfriend who used to cuddle and kiss at Uni those days......HAH.....I insisted the Tracy I knew full on prefered Asians. Guess who was right!

The full band came on at around 10pm.

The guys found it so amusing to see a 'mismatched' band - with a guitarist looking like a sound technician more than anything else. What makes a good band? Is having a good voice with quality music sufficient or you need at least the lead singer to be good looking or the whole band to look like god sent from heaven? (I remember last week at Bangkok Jazz, Sam was just fussing about how unshaven the keyboardist looked and thankfully the bassist was rather cute). I must say though, the lead singer did a great rendition of Cindy Lauper's 'Time after time'.




Above: Tracy unshamefully snapped a picture of the band at Wala Wala. What's with the moustache (we could not get over that)???????

At the end of the day, if the bar serves great food and has a decent band, that's good enough and you don't get many of those in KL.......
