Jim Lai Festival (presented by Toyota It’s Mine) was held in the halls of Bitec Bangna, Bangkok that went across for two days between 8th-9th November where many popular singers, bands and stars performed in front of thousands of viewers. The St Andrews young rock band “WhiteJack” had experience performing live at this very festival and the results they came back with were rather fascinating.

The young musicians blew away many of the audiences’ minds as they performed with much enthusiasm and great courage. WhiteJack played an original song they had composed together called “Young and Reckless” mashing up with “Guerilla Radio” played by one of the world’s most famous metal bands named Rage Against The Machine.

“The moment I stood on stage, I saw thousands of eyes focusing on me. I knew if I didn’t bring out everything I got, I’d regret it afterwards,” explained the band’s lead singer, Dew, of her experience. “The moment I left the stage, I realized what my dream really looked like. I even cried a little by how amazing it was. I knew my band mates felt the same.”
