Known in the ‘60s as the barometer of all things cool in music and fashion, the Golden Venus was the place to be seen and be in the scene.

The allure of Golden Venus wasn’t just the venue and the music, it was also about the bands—singers and musicians who were instrumental in shaping the vibrant local musical landscape back then. Whether it was the blistering blues solos of The Straydogs, the instrumental jangle pop of The Checkmates, or the inimitable voices of Veronica Young and Vernon Cornelius, these Golden Venus acts left unforgettable impressions on audiences week after week.

This November, we pay tribute to the trailblazers of the memorable tea dance era. Come and be part of Singapore’s music history again and relive the swinging ‘60s!

Featuring Veronica Young, The Straydogs, Vernon Cornelius with The Checkmates (Benny Chan & Lawrence Lee)

Hosted by Brian Richmond
