Thursday 9.00pm - 12.15am with Alfred Sim and The Switch Gang (electric)
ALFRED SIM (沈志豪)
Alfred Sim is a highly sought after performer for his versatility. His ability to silence the audience with his artistry has been witnessed at almost every occasion at which he performs – beneath his cool, collected demeanour lies a talent to impersonate singers from across genres – he can mesmerize the crowd with an Andy Lau or Jacky Chueng's classics and even Louis Armstrong’s signature husky tone with “What A Wonderful World”. Alfred can also cross over to huge rock ballads or to nostalgic jazz standards. A talent definitely to watch out for - he's going to go places.
