Chang Po Ching is a classic powerhouse soul brother, an unforgettable semi finalist on season 7 of ‘The Voice’ TV Show and who’s tone and delivery has been likened to legendary singer John Legend. From busking in Byron to singing around the globe, Chang Po Ching is a singer, songwriter and guitarist that loves to share his love of music with people. He’s performed for audiences of thousands at the Commonwealth Games, and his dynamic and soulful voice always carries the original flavours of Motown and classic R&B.
He’ll be belting out some classic motown, funk and soul hits backed by local funk combo Kerbside Collection in ‘extended funk orchestra mode’ taking you on a funky Motown and New Orleans sleigh ride through the golden era of 50s, 60s, and 70s rhythm and blues inna-Xmas-stylee!
Kerbside Collection have made a funky splash over the past decade with their recent 4th album generating warm worldwide support from the UK to Japan! They’ve shared and warmed up stages for The Kashmere Stage Band (US), Cookin’ on 3 Burners (Melb), Russ Dewburry (Jazz Rooms/UK), Craig Charles (BBC radio/UK) and Japan’s finest funk outfit Osaka Monaural. They lay out the funky red carpet of dynamite grooves for soul brother Chang Po Ching to light up the bandstand!
