JUMP TO VIEW A SELECTION OF UNIQUE PERKS

Our Story

Fringe Studio Theater, 2012 Launch
 

“A wondrous, massive, mishmash of a group”- Time Out Hong Kong Magazine

Hong Kong's largest original band, SHAOLIN FEZ -- an eclectic mishmash that begun when classical musicians from the Hong Kong Philharmonic joined forces with local jazz and rock pros -- is taking pre-orders and offering exclusive perks so that we can begin production of a new EP ("Early Play": a shorter version of a CD) called, "THIS IS NOW OUR HOME" . Not having a record label, we are asking our audience and the public for your support, and in the spirit of non-profit, we will donate 100% of proceeds from the public sale of this EP towards refugee relief (via the highly-rated Save the Children organization).


Use of Funds Raised

“….. a full-on acid jazz symphonic cinematic disco wall of sound…” - South China Morning Post

If we can raise $40,000 HKD (about $5K USD) we will release a hard copy EP of about 3-4 songs.
If we can raise $60,000 HKD (about $8K USD) we can release an EP of 6-7 songs.
Our top goal is to raise $80,000 HKD (about $10K USD) -- which would allow us to record a full-length album!
And the more we can raise over and above that, the more songs we can include on it. Should we fall a little short of our first EP goal, we would use the funds instead to record singles to be released digitally (mp3) on the internet (while still donating the proceeds to refugee relief), and meanwhile we will search for additonal funding in order to eventually complete the hard-copy EP.


About SHAOLIN FEZ

Clockenflap mainstage, 2015

“Shaolin Fez’s appeal is audibly obvious…to grand effect,” -Tiger Air Inflight Magazine

SHAOLIN FEZ is the largest original band in Hong Kong and its greatest diva showcase.

Four years ago we released our debut album, Calm Your Storm, which included artistic contributions by 22 professional musicians, a children's choir, acoustic guitar work from a Grammy nominee, and was mixed by one of Hollywood's most accomplished engineers (of films such as Frozen). That alone is pretty ambitous! We have six feature music videos on Youtube.

We function as a professional collective, comprised of regular players: Jennifer Palor, Sam Ferrer, Vincent Lau, Andrew Cheung, Adriel Bote, Ricky Wong, Tobe Kushiator, Nate Wong, Almond Yeung, Floro Sernande, Russell Bonifede, Tim Summers, Chris Moyse, John Campo, Ben Pelletier, Oliver Cura, Anders Hui, Yingna Zhao, Fan Yan, Eiko Hosaka, Yanice Tsang, and Domas Juskys.

HK Summer Jazz Festival at CITY HALL with SOLER

We were the only ensemble invited to the HK Summer Jazz Festival 2014 that was given the special honor of an entire night’s program all to ourselves. Given the freedom to program anything we wanted, we invited rock-star celebrity twins, “SOLER”, of Macau, to be our special guests. We featured them in cinematic music, such as Cinema Paradiso by Ennio Morricone, as well as some beautiful ballads in Italian and Spanish, including “Cucurrucucu”. Meanwhile, Jennifer brought the house down with our cover renditions of “Skyfall” and “He Lives In You” as well as many of our originals. This was one of our favorites performances to date! Thanks again to all who came to support us — the feedback was overwhelming!
