Experience nostalgia as the bands present a variety of uniquely Singaporean songs, from National Day songs such as ‘Home’ and ‘Where I Belong’, to classics such as ‘Kopi-O’ and Bunga ‘Sayang’. Come join us with family and friends and have an enchanting time of singing, dancing and simply reliving the good old days while celebrating our Nation’s 52nd birthday!
