Interview: Tabula

How did you guys meet?
Tabula was originally formed eight years ago by Arron and me. We met through mutual friends and shared common musical interests, played a couple of virgin gigs and the rest was history.
What kind of music do you play?
We play rock, Brit, alternative and, ultimately, party and fun music for people to have a good time. Memorable performances? The big break for us was as opening act for Hoobastank in 2004 at Sentosa. Nonetheless, the last NYE Countdown Gig we did with Power 98 at Marina Barrage was unbelievable; the fans were amazing.
Where would your dream gig be?
Madison Square Garden! Also, I’d definitely like to play at Woodstock or Big Day Out.
Who do you look up to in the local music scene?
I enjoy watching Jive Talkin’ and John Molina & Kruger during my off nights; they have been in the scene for the longest time. They’re not just awesome musicians but also excellent entertainers! Jack & Rai, Dawn Ho and Shirlyn from Unxpected are also worth mentioning.
Tabula perform every Wed, 9pm at Hard Rock Café Singapore, HPL House, 50 Cuscaden Rd., 6235-5232.
