The Simon Yong Band appointed as System 10 ambassadors
SINGAPORE: Audio-Technica (S.E.A.) has announced The Simon Yong Band as the newest ambassadors for its System 10 digital wireless system Own Your Freedom campaign.
‘The System 10 Stompbox represents total musical mobility on stage and we are excited to partner with the Simon Yong Band to personify this digital high-fidelity guitar wireless system,’ commented Evelyn Woo, marketing manager for Audio-Technica (S.E.A). ‘The Simon Yong Band comprises of some of the finest local musicians and we can’t wait for more rocking performances with the Stompbox onboard now.’
Two original members of the band, Brandon Khoo and Simon Yong, first used System 10 back in 2012, during their opening act at the Singapore Indoor Stadium to a 10,000 strong crowd. The pair have continued to work closely with the manufacturer ever since. ‘I can’t believe I synced everything by myself, it was so simple,’ recalled Mr Yong, ‘and the sound came out smoothly.’
The pair went on to form The Simon Yong Band, together with Joanna Lim and Yazeid Rahman, to bring their music to wider audience. The band has plans to tour across South East Asia in the near future and will be embarking on a Japanese tour in October that covers nine concerts in Tokyo and Osaka.
