THE Jerudong Park Playground came to life last night in an engaging display of showmanship delivered by a number of talented men in uniform during a rare exposition of live performances that did not fall short of entertainment value.
As part of a string of public engagements during their visit here in the country following the conclusion of the 20th Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT), the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet Band, the Orient Express alongside Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) compatriots awed the theme park visitors with show-stopping routines that presented a number of internationally and locally chart-topping songs both in Malay as well as in English.
Catered to a variety of spectators ranging from the young to the old, the performances were segmented into three parts with the first staged by the RBAF followed with those from the US Navy and a conclusion that witnessed the combined musical prowess from both bands all of which received rousing applauses from an enthusiastic audience.
Last night’s event, the last of its kind for this year’s tour in the Sultanate, was also attended by the American Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam, Daniel Shields, along with other members of the embassy’s staff.
