Two of the members in the Simon Yong band, Brandon Khoo and Simon Yong, have been ambassadors of System 10 since 2012 and have been worked closely with Audio-Technica. Their first performance with the System 10 was during their opening act for The Script at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, in front of a 10,000 strong crowd.  “I can’t believe I synced everything by myself, it was so simple. And the sound came out smoothly.”  Simon Yong raved.


They decided to form The Simon Yong band together with Joanna Lim, and Yazeid Rahman to create more original music and reach out to more audiences. The band has plans to conquer bigger stages, including a regional South-East Asia tour in the near future.  They will also be heading to tour Japan in October, with 7 shows in Tokyo and 2 shows in Osaka.
