53A

June 21, 2023 @ 8:00 pm 8:30 pm

A name synonymous with live music, and a headline band of the vibrant local music scene for more than a decade. The band’s pitch-perfect vocals, accompanied by their technically sound instrumentation and musicality, has propelled them to be one of the most recognized local bands in Singapore. The band started off as a talented Jazz duo of Sara and Alvin, and has since grown to be a five piece musical experience. From their Jazz roots, they also encompass genres such as Top 40s Pop and Rock. They perform not only at live music venues, but also on the big stages for many music events. The band released an original album “Settle the Kettle” in 2010 and received positive reviews in TODAY, The Business Times and TIME Magazine.

53A is fronted by the beautiful voice of Sara Wee, vocalist and lead guitarist Amir Shazwan, vocalist and bassist Bani Hidir, vocalist and drummer Helman Kamal and vocal power house and talented keyboardist Lisa Haryono. The aggregation of their professional experience and infectious personalities has resulted in a distinct 53A charm, which has made the band a hot favorite at Live Music venues across the island.

Their biggest accolade till date, is being the feature act for the National Day Parade 2016 – SG51. The band performed their signature NDP Medley and the 2016 NDP Theme Song “Tomorrow’s Here Today”.
