Saturday night I attended the Hong Kong leg of the Hennessy Artistry tour. The event featured big-name performers from around the region. Among the artists on stage were Human Nature (Australia,) Gary Chaw 曹格(Taiwan,) Tata Young (Thailand,) and Se7en 세븐(Korea). Check out the concert in photos!

The first act to go on was Human Nature. The group was comprised of four guys wearing tuxedos singing popular Motown songs from the 1960’s. The crowd was into it, as were some of the celebrities in attendance, but it’s just not my kind of music. Next up was Gary Chaw 曹格 who wowed the crowd with his versatile singing, doing a duet with himself tackling both the male and female roles! He was excellent at engaging the crowd and sang in Mandarin and English.

All of the musicians were seasoned performers who interacted well with the audience. They all came off as friendly and even appeared to have a sense of humor. Tata Young came on third. She played a very international blend of pop music that the crowd had no trouble responding to.

Se7en was the hottest name on the bill. Just watching him dance was like getting an aerobic workout! This guy was all over the stage, doing everything from flips to hand-stands. My good-shot to blurry-shot ratio ventured into uncharted territory trying to capture him. His slickly produced music relied heavily on old-school Hip Hop, as did several of his dance routines. It’s interesting to see how much of a debt contemporary international Pop owes to a movement started by kids from inner-city New York!

After the show I headed off to Central. I stopped by Racks for about an hour. By the time I left, the crowd downstairs waiting to get into Club Beijing (also located in M-88) was crazy!

Next I stopped off at Dragon-i to check out Jazzy M, the first d.j. to ever play at England’s Ministry of Sound franchise. I only stayed for fifteen minutes, but in that brief time I heard two excellent songs I didn’t know, which leads me to believe that it was another great night at D.I.
