NITE OUT – LaChica-Go in Bedok


Friday night and nowhere to go? Head for NTUC Club’s Happy Days in Bedok Central (Blk 445, Bedok North St 1, tel. 6445 4345) and chill to Rock and Pop hits from the 70s-90s by a great band – LaChica-Go. Get a peep at


It’s a cosy set-up with just three Singaporeans in the band and a Rock/Top 40s/Pop repertoire that sets feet tapping for both Gen Y and Baby Boomers. Band leader Gerry La Chica, 61 became a professional musician when he left school at 16, playing with The Flybaits in Hong Kong in the late 1960s. Now a father of five and grandfather of six, he’s still loving what he does. As do bandmates, vocalist Zack (Mohd Zaki Omar), 42 and lead guitarist Riz, 47 who both hold non-musical day jobs.


Friendly staff, tasty finger food, and NTUC members can redeem beer with LinkPoints! How great is that? Check out the different live performances every day of the week. If you’re going to drink, take public transport. – Video: Bernard Koh
