The Wynners to sing greatest hits
    2017-August-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Hong Kong Cantopop band The Wynners will present a night of their greatest hits at the Shenzhen Bay Sports Center.

Formed in the 1970s, the band consists of Alan Tam (lead vocal), Kenny Bee (lead vocal, guitar, keyboards), Bennett Pang (lead guitar), Danny Yip (bass) and Anthony Chan (drums).

The group sang exclusively in English in their early days, mainly covers of popular songs from other parts of the world, most notably “Hey Jude” by The Beatles.

In 1975, the group collaborated with songwriter/lyricist James Wong and released a number of original Cantonese songs for the soundtrack of the movie “Let’s Rock,” which Wong also directed. With lyrics in a light-hearted, colloquial style, these songs defined a signature style of early Cantopop.

In 1978, the members of the group went their separate ways to develop their solo careers.

Never formally disbanded, The Wynners have since reunited on stage every five years to sold-out crowds. In April 2011, they reunited at the Artists 311 Love Beyond Borders fundraising event set up by Jackie Chan in Hong Kong to help tsunami victims in Japan. In 2014, they held a benefit concert for Family Bridges at the Oracle Arena in the United States.
