Three-Day Pop Yeh Yeh Reunion concert - This January!!!

When I saw this poster last week, I nearly fell out of my chair.. I have to go to this!


Where: Istana Budaya - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

When: Friday, January 20, 2012 at 8:30pm until Sunday, January 22, 2012 at 11:30pm.


Original Singers with Original Bands :

- Jefridin @ Siglap 5
- A Rahman Hassan @ Orkes Nirwana
- A Halim @ D' Fiction
- J Sham @ The Wanderers
- Kassim Selamat @ Swallows (update: Kassim Selamat will not be attending unfortunately)
- L Ramlie @ Teruna Ria
- Fatimah M Amin @ The Clans
- A Rahman Onn @ Strangers

note: although i just read some recent dialogue on the event page (fb) that some of these bands might not all actually be composed of entirely original members, the singers will certainly be the real deal. I hope it's a huge success, for these artists' sake alone... they're living legends all of them and they will hopefully be welcomed by a sold out audience!

Below: some recent newspaper articles about this three day concert series (Unfortunately I wont be able to make it to this...I had hoped I could but the timing didnt work out)


  1. It seems to me that the organisers of this concert had mistakenly chosen a rock and roll band from the Netherlands as part of their promotional poster.

    I will be very upset if one of the members from the dutch band fails to appear. It won't be funny to travel all the way down to Malaysia, only to realise that they've made a huge mistake.

    Oh well ... ini macam bila BOLEH maju?

  2. Frankly only The Orkes Nirwana may have almost all original members.....the rest I am not sure where they will find them (the original band boys) as many are infirm or expired already. Me and three of my ex-Jayhawkers are still around (and can still perform) but no one contacted us.....and we were not exactly an obscure and unknown band from the era and known as "Roziah Latiff & The Jayhawkers"...well "Takpalah" as Tunku Abd Rahman was fond of saying. Its more of a gathering of the pop yeh2 surviving singers and clones.
