5th Edition of The Bald, Bold & Beautiful

80 musicians to perform and 8 to go bald  in support of Childhood CancerAn electic combination of eighty young and veteran artists will grace Waikiki PJ stage on Sunday 9th July to raise funds for children undergoing cancer treatment. The much talked about annual fundraiser, Bald, Bold & Beautiful  will enter its 5th year with eight participants going bald in between performances. Among those joining the cause in going bald “live” at the event are Waikiki’s owner Tony Siew, ardent & repeat participants Shel Ling, Y C Ang, Dr Jean Teoh from Ipoh, Helen Sta Maria and Dr. Revathi Rajagopal, Paediatric Oncologist of University Malaya Medical Centre  (UMMC). Also going bald for the first time are a couple known in the local entertainment scene, Amizan Ariffin & his wife Kyra Neng.Scheduled to commence from 5pm sharp, the 8-hour non-stop live entertainment boasts of some seriously exciting acts, ranging from impressive young bands to stalwarts in the music industry. It will be a treat to see and feel the energy of so many young talented bands on one stage. They include the flamboyant musical pop group Fazz, Volatile from Penang, Billie Blue & The Nowhere Men, Battle Bloom, RYOT Jones and The Maha Jeffery Band. Joining them will be the highly popular Evelyn Feroza & Lethrio, Russell & The Rowdy Gentlemen, Hazel Leong & friends, Double Aze, Purple Haze, The Flerz, Debbie Su & Friends and Oyent Hazryl. There will be a special guest from Louisiana, Seth Roach who will share the stage with fellow local musicians. One can expect more surprises & special appearances by guest artists at the closing jam hosted by Joy Victor, 9 Lives & friends.Funds for the evening are raised through proceeds from the 1st drink charge of Rm30 nett per person, a percentage of bar sales for the night, T-Shirt sales as well as last minute auctions and donations. Meanwhile those going bald or bold have already started the ball rolling by sourcing donations for their participation.The event is organized annually by a fully voluntary group who call themselves Tribute To Kindness also known as TTK.  TTK is a community of like minded friends, getting together to make a difference for those in crucial need of medical aid. A more focused objective was adopted in 2012 to support Childhood Cancer (the Gold Ribbon). TTK started off organizing ad hoc events at Waikiki Club PJ from 2009. They have extended financial aid to specific causes i.e. Kirtarsh Orphanage and a number of musicians who were in critical need for medical attention. In 2012, TTK organized a family fiesta called “Share The Power of a Wish” and raised RM31,000 to fulfill the wishes of 60 terminally children at KLGH. That event was a defining moment for the group. They then decided to give cancer stricken children from less privileged family background a fighting chance at survival.The maiden Bald & Beautiful took place in Feb 2013. For the first 2 years, funds were disbursed directly to 30 families who needed help for their childrens’ cancer treatment. Later in 2014, UMMC fully sanctioned TTK’s efforts which led to a formal collaboration between the two parties. The Heston Siew Tribute fund was established and parked at UMMC under the purview of a working committee. The committee comprises TTK’s founder Tony Siew, retired hotelier Judy Pow and artist Joy Victor, UMMC’s Paediatric Oncology and Social Services departments.  The committee review cases of patients & families who are in dire need of financial help and by consensus, allocate funds to purchase chemo drugs and subsidize related treatment for the children undergoing treatment at the medical facility.The annual fund raiser has since been renamed Bald, Bold & Beautiful to allow more flexibility for participation. Besides going bald, participants can opt to go bold i.e. change their hair color to go blond, pink or whatever color they fancy. Since coloring consumes time, participants are encouraged to do so prior to the event.  Funds are raised through each participant who reaches out to their family & circle of friends for a minimum donation of RM1,000 for their participation.TTK members & volunteers, participants and musicians are not remunerated in any way. What makes the event so popular is its transparency with 100% of donations and proceeds of the night going into the fund. The fund was inspired by the fighting spirit of Tony Siew’s son, Heston who at 8-months old in 2012 was diagnosed with AML. Today, Heston is in remission and the fund in his name fully supports childhood cancer.Over RM620,000 have been raised by TTK from 2012 till 2016. To date, funds have been disbursed to a total of 79 children who have undergone or are undergoing cancer treatment. 30 were assisted directly and the remaining 49 were assisted via the Heston Siew Tribute Fund at UMMC.In 2016, a much welcomed ripple effect took place with the Dance For Fund Society in Klang joining the fund raising efforts. Proceeds from their annual dinner and sponsors added a further boost of RM50,000 to the Heston Siew Tribute Fund. A major portion of this new fund was utilized to establish a halfway house which offers outstation patients much needed respite in between their treatments. For more information on the event, check out the links below! https://www.facebook.com/Tribute-To-Kindness-249295125199664/        https://www.facebook.com/events/401738946892305/

DNCE Live In Kuala Lumpur For The First Time Ever

ONEMUSIC by XOX Mobile proudly presents DNCE LIVE IN Kuala Lumpur! DNCE will be gracing Malaysian shores for the first time ever this coming August brought to you by Universal Music Malaysia and Wilbros in a first-time collaboration to materialize the dream to bring down DNCE for Malaysian fans.  Universal Music Malaysia ran a ‘stream to unlock’ activity to gauge the response of Malaysian fans. Fans had to stream the DNCE album as much as they want in order to show us their eagerness to bring DNCE down. Fans proved themselves as they over-achieved in the first two weeks of the campaign launch. Pop rock quartet DNCE brings the party to the dance floor with an infectious blend of catchy-as-heck tunes and exuberant showmanship.Assembled by front man Joe Jonas (formerly from the group Jonas Brothers) and formed in the summer of 2015, features guitarist JinJoo Lee, bassist/keyboardist Cole Whittle, and drummer Jack Lawless, was born from Jonas’s long-brewing plan to launch an offbeat pop project inspired by the melodic R&B of Earth, Wind & Fire and Hall & Oates. DNCE first introduced themselves to audiences worldwide with the release of their debut single "Cake By The Ocean," their now certified double-platinum breakout smash which has made them one of 2016's most buzzworthy acts. The song was a certified smash at radio, becoming one of the most played songs of the year. To date, global consumption for the song is over 6 million. Their other dance-ready standouts like “Toothbrush” and “Body Moves” bring the same combination of youthful energy, grooving bass, and passionate vocals in a power packed self-titled album DNCE that was released November 2016. The album has now garnered over 8,700 album unit sales here in Malaysia! The band name, ‘DNCE’ has its own wacky origin — it’s the next best thing for “when you’re too drunk to spell ‘dance,’” says Jonas — there’s also a deeper meaning that’s got to do with the shedding of self-consciousness. “It’s incomplete, it’s imperfect, but it’s still all right,” says Lee of DNCE’s name and guiding philosophy. “You don’t have to be a great dancer to dance — you can dance however you want to, and still have so much fun. That’s really the beauty of this whole thing.We cannot deny that DNCE brings a palpable chemistry which they hope to carry over through their music – ‘We really want this to feel like a party’, Jonas says. When asked to describe DNCE’s live show, he adds: “It’s like going to some club in Europe at 4.00am and everybody’s all sweaty and looks like they’re in the Village People. We’re all from different worlds, but we’re all here together.”As DNCE hits Kuala Lumpur for the first time ever this 8th of August, ticket buyers are in for an all-out pop dance party they won't soon forget. Tickets will be available for sale on 04 July 2017 onwards and can be purchased at www.myticket.asia. Tickets are tiered at RM288 (PS2), RM388 (PS1) and RM538 (VIP). VIP ticket holders get to enjoy priority lane access and secret merchandise! Check out their latest album here: https://lnk.to/DNCEalbumWo
