Book a date with local music legends this weekend

Those who grew up with The Alleycats, NRG, Heavy Machine and The Strollers are in for a treat this Sunday as these big names come together for a musician's benefit concert. 

The Musicians for Musicians benefit concert is organised by Persatuan Pemuzik Malaysia and co-sponsored by BAC and Asia Wings Resources Sdn Bhd. 

The nine-hour event which begins at 3pm will be held at the Barrister's Hall in Menara BAC, Petaling Jaya. 

Funds collected will be used to uplift, empower and enable local musicians to continue pursuing their passion for the arts. 

The concert was initially planned for 2020 but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Even after the pandemic, musicians are still finding it difficult to find work as many clubs closed down during the movement control order period. 

Other big names set to perform during the concert include Bala, Small Stones, Royston Sta Maria, Sons of Adam and Stag. 

Tickets are available for RM100 while a table for 10 pax with a six-course menu is priced at RM5,000. Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.facebook.com/musiciansformusicians.
