And the special appearance by HUJAN…
The final installment of RockERA DiGi Disokong Oleh KPSU 2011 has brought out wondrous talents and who would have guessed that Sarawak has these BIG talents clouded by our everyday mainstream life & routine. To be frank, this is the first time I ever watch or went to a gig since I came back to Kuching 1 year ago.
Our team arrived at the venue at about time to enter the Rock Zone. We managed to get the very front spot near the stage. That’s how we manage to shoot some very good shots.
First of all, lets get to know our energetic hosts for the night…
Each finalists that night performed 3 songs in which they have to deliver 1 song of their choose (cover or ori), 1 original composed song and 1 song chosen by the judge’s panel during the press conference on the 30th April 2011 previously. Please check our previous entry on RockERA DiGi Disokong Oleh KPSU Round 3 for the songs.
All and all, 15 songs were performed on stage by the finalists and check out which band is the Ultimate Champion…
Congratulation to MAYZE! The band became the ultimate champion and brought home with them a cash prize of RM4000 and a recording contract with Warner Music Malaysia. Mayze which is membered by Mohd Sufian Mohidin as the singer & guitarist (30), Mohd Salih Mohidin as the second bassist (28), Mohd Noorhizam as the lead guitarist (30) and Mohd Zaid Awang Basar as the drummer (30) were childhood friends which shares the passion of music and band gig that bound them together. Mayze debuting their own songs Propaganda Minda & Dusta while performing Grenade from Bruno Mars as the judge’s selection during the final round.
Here are some of the shots taken from Mayze’s performance that night :-

Hopefully next time there will be more wonderful events such as this to be explore and exposed.
