George Benson Coming to Jakarta


Jazz Guitarist and Singer George Benson is one of my most favorite non-rock musician.

I first listened to his songs when I was a teenager, at that time my eldest sister Aty was very fond of him and listened to his songs very often.

My favorite George Benson songs were The Greatest Love of All, This Masquerade and Wonder Boy.

This week he will perform two days at the Java Jazz Festival 2011 at the Jakarta International Expo ground in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta as follows :

- Saturday, 5 MarchA Tribute to Nat King Cole,  Online Ticket:  SOLD OUT
- Sunday,   6 MarchThe Greatest Hits Show,  Online Ticket:  Rp 402.500,-  PLUS  Daily Pass: Rp  529.000.- OR Three Days Pass: Rp. 1.449.000,- (Tax Included)

Obviously the top notch of great popular music artists will be performing in Jakarta. Will you yourself be at the festival also?? In the audience, I mean :).

I wonder though why it is called a "Jazz" festival?

@Sawali,
Iya mas, senang bahwa musisi kelas dunia seperti dia mau pentas disini.

@Colson,
Yes I will be there.
Why they call it "jazz" festival ?
Perhaps because that what the organizer have in mind when they plan the annual event more than 7 years ago.

Hello ,Honestly Sir I don't Really know about this Music Genre there is a opinion in community arround me Jazz only for rich people but I will try to listen Jazz from now

Multibrand said...

@Gandiwor,
Terima kasih atas kunjungan anda.

@Wisata Murah,
Pasti asik kalau begitu.

@Aulawi,
I also like the instrumental jazz music.

@Smp 3 Lembang,
Sebenarnya asal musik jazz dari kaum hitam di AS dulu kebanyakan miskin dan bekas budak.
Saya pikir musik maupun seni tidak mengenal ekslusivitas. Mungkin orangnya saja yang merasa demikian.

Harry

that's so unfair! Why are these
musicians always bypassing Kuala
Lumpur? Nothing interesting seems
to be happening here of late.
Anyway I'm so jealous that you
guys get to have all the fun.

Ha ha on a lighter note, do
enjoy the live performance.
Sometimes it's good to shove
politics and all the hopeless
politicians aside and just
blank out, even if it's just
for a while.

Multibrand said...

Hi Bear Wife,
Yes you are very right, watching the live performances of our favorite musicians would allow us to relax and for all the bad things that happened around us.
