Much More about ado with The Harvard Din & Tonics

How well you know Din & Tonics? They are an all-male a Capella singing group from Harvard University located in Boston. Started in 1979, they are a 12 member jazz a cappella group formed in 1979. The group has a repertoire centered on the American jazz standards of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. The singers perform in white tie, tails, and lime green socks. The group performed in Mona Lisa Smile, a 2003 movie starring Julia Roberts that was set in a fictional 1950s’ college. The Harvard Din & Tonics of 2017-2018 will embark on an 11-week world tour, where they will perform in some 30 cities around the globe. The Dins have taken such tours every other year since 1986.

Songs include:

  • Fly
  • All in Love is Fair
  • September
  • McDonald’s Girl
  • ..and more.

Here’s the video if you want to see them perform:

A Very Special Walk (AVSW) 2018

The Dins are there when we were at the event for carnival and concert only because we have to spend our AVSW coupons at eat, drink and do things we could. We couldn’t stay for the performance by the only Dins themselves. And because of limitation of time, we couldn’t catch up with an all jazz a cappella band from Harvard University, we’ll interview them soon.

In memory of: Eduard Khil (4 September 1934 – 4 June 2012)

In memory of: Eduard Khil [Эдуард Анатольевич Хиль] (4 September 1934 – 4 June 2012)
4th June marks the 6th Anniversary of the Trololo guy’s passing in St. Petersburg and that month was 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, as Qatar Airways is best known to fly there starting 19 December 2017.

We look back to one of his songs like “I am very glad, because I’m finally returning back home” (that’s “Я очень рад, потому что я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой” in Russian; and listen to it on Spotify). But while Deadpool 2 is still in cinemas, they’ll never understand to be the same.

Our thoughts goes out to the family of Eduard Khil.

Listen to Я очень рад, потому что я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой on Spotify:

In memory of: Siva Choy (1947 – 2018)

Last Sunday, meanwhile in Perth, Siva Choy, the writer behind our classic song from the 90s’ “Why U So Like Dat?” performed by Kopi Kat Klan, died at the age of 70 due to the heavy stroke.

One week ago, we watched Marvel Studios’ Black Panther before  he died like T’Chanka (remember the time T’Chanka was killed off in Captain America: Civil War was part of that movie), if not, please refer to our review we posted one week ago.

Listen to one of the songs performed by Kopi Kat Klan:
