Members of RMIT Vietnam’s Music Club are taking their talents to the people.
On a warm Thursday evening more than a hundred people were crowded into Barcode, a recently opened bar in the bustling downtown area of District 1 in Ho Chi Minh City. It was the venue's 'Acoustic Night' and the audience was eager to hear some live music, something that is not all that common in a town still very much dominated by DJs.
Many of the performers who took stage also happen to be members of RMIT Vietnam's music club, who have been revelling in the regular Thursday night gig.
"I really appreciate the opportunity to participate in this event," said Vo Nguyen Quynh Giao, one of the club members who performed four songs during the evening.
"The success of 'Acoustic Night' as well as the positive reaction from the audience really motivates me and my friends to continue singing well."
The audience certainly seemed to appreciate the effort with warm applause and even some cheering after many of the numbers.
The management team at Barcode were also satisfied with the RMIT Music Club's performance. Marketing Officer Duong Huyen My said he was very impressed with the student's professionalism.
"Our guests really enjoyed listening to their songs," My said. "We will continue this event as well as establishing other exciting events and we would love to cooperate with RMIT Music Club's members again."
