Performing with Uncle Reggae on the second night at Wapres, which is known to be a stepping stone for future Indonesian stars. Some very popular bands here have debuted on this humble stage. Very strong and supportive music community here in Jakarta. It’s not uncommon to see big stars sitting in with young bands to help motivate them.
Performing at the second show of the night at Eastern Promise, an expat pub in Kemang. On the way to the show, Uncle Reggae and his band were traveling on motorcycles, weaving in and out of traffic, which was gridlocked all the way through the backroads. Our van was not moving at all, so tour manager Agus jumps out of the van and onto the back of Uncle Reggae’s motorcycle to get to the venue faster to set up. Take notes, American tour managers!
