Amphion presents… Hilton Hotels and Resorts “100-Years of Hospitality” anniversary
On June 6, Amphion’s Asia-Pacific Representative, Michael Di Stasio, was invited to produce the entertainment – arranging NY-based “Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Band” led by its director John Lee for the main stage; Jazz/Soul/Funk pianist Philip Woo to provide opening entertainment; and secured the extraordinary talented Japanese-TV producer and entertainer Dave Spector as the MC for the evening.
First wowed by the jazz-groove of veteran pianist Woo – who has performed with world greats such as Grover Washington, Stevie Wonder, Cyndi Lauper et al, the audience were then totally blown away by the raw power and virtuosity of “DGAS”. It was an extraordinary night.
How good is Dizzy’s band ? There’s possibly no greater testimonial than from the late, great singer/songwriter:
“Oh man, they are so good it’s just ridiculous… ” – Aretha Franklin
