Thank You, Jumero

Over a month late, but:
I just want to mention special thanks to Jumero - Ryan, Michael, Jared.

I knew these guys as neighbourhood pals and naturally invited them as guests to my wedding. But being aware of their musical talent and reputation, I asked them to play a few songs during my event.

So they did - and with real class!

Despite their busy schedule, they prepared for and brilliantly pulled off a few original Jumero songs as well as a cover of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud".

It wasn't only their raw talent which amazed me - their professionalism also won my admiration: turning up hours before the actual event to do a sound check, as well as singing while all other guests were busy eating.
(NB: Ryan, Mike and Jared did all this free of charge - being there, after all, as guests).

I owe my deepest gratitude to the neighbourhood pals who I have always known as top-quality friends, who I now know for sure still have the biggest hearts despite all these years of musical success.
In my book, you guys are the best indie band in Malaysia. Period.
