i went to java jazz ALONE last saturday. i actually didn't plan to go there but my manager rang me in the afternoon and told me there's a ticket for me. i was excited but i began to think "will i go there alone?". so i asked my manager, "do you have another ticket for my friend?"
[biasanya orang kan beli 1 gratis 1.. kalo gw: udah gratis 1, minta 1 lagi...]
but, my manager told me, "i only have one.". so i said, "okay, i'll come!". it's JAVA JAZZ, man! i don't give a f**k if i'm there alone...
so i arrived there at 8 P.M. i saw seven great performances from seven great artists! these are the performances i saw [chronologically]:
1. THE JANE PROJECT
this group is from holland. i've never heard of them before but their performance was f**king cool! very soulful...
2. KAZUMI WATANABE
a guitar legend from japan. it's just amazing to see him performing live, especially when tetsuo sakurai joined him on stage!
3. SOULLEH & SOULLEHA
this is a band project created by young and talented indonesian musicians. i didn't recognize all of them but i knew that the drummer is parkdrive drummer. this group really attracted so many people. the java jazz committee only placed their performance at the lobby but this group really made the lobby very crowded. great performance!
i saw his performance many times before this event. you know why? because he's my uncle... hehe.. :)
this singer works together with me under one management and label. he delivered a good performance that night.
6. RAUL MIDON
for me, his performance was spectacular. for a blind man, the way he sang and played his guitar was amazing. he also could make a saxophone sound just by singing. he's really impressive. it's a "wow" performance from him!
one of my favorite artists! so i know you can imagine what i felt when i saw their performance. they performed their hits, like "smooth escape", "tattooed on my mind", etc. they performed on the main stage and they really showed us why they deserved it.
so, it was my java jazz night! i felt happy about it, especially i came there for free... btw, i wasn't really alone there because i met my friends. it's a fun night!
