Last night, an epic show happened!

Videos of the featured artistes and big bands are sure to be all across the net in a bit. For this post, I’ll be sharing on the backstage experience, as a member of Spice & Co. band.

Menus backstage for Musicians, Singers and their entourages can vary. Very often, it’s like playing the ‘lucky dip.’ Just get there an’ hope for the best. Sometimes, despite sending in an Artist Rider, artists have to go hunting around for basic supplies like bottled water, or soft drinks, cups, and chairs. Thankfully, many promoters get it right– and go beyond the call of duty to provide a beautiful backstage experience. This was what “Rockin’ Hard” was! The ambience was beautiful, backstage clean and spacious, service A++++ and the menu…well, lemme let the pictures do most of the talking…

Steamed broccoli, fresh carrots, crunchy celery, hummus (Yes!), tuna dip, biscuits with herbs. No pics of the beautifully-decorate platter since I didn’t want to lean over everyone’s food. This one’s a pic of my plate before munching down on these colourful goodies.

Warm flat bread, assorted cheeses, watermelon, gala apples, bananas, green and purple grapes, red wine (didn’t have any)
Upstairs in the lobby. Minimalistic decor with white-walls accented by discreet splashes of colour using plants and cloth.

This morning’s breakfast…yes I brought home a small fruit cup at 3am. Food’s not to be wasted.
