KUALA LUMPUR – The extraordinary combined performance by 11 national security and enforcement agencies that made up the biggest band at the National Day 2017 celebration at Dataran Merdeka today stole the show and entertained the audience effortlessly.
Featuring the prowess of performing live non-stop for four hours since 7am, the band members rendered 35 patriotic songs to accompany the performances being held throughout the traditional parade.
The National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS) is the key to their success in carrying out the performance that is expected to be recorded in “The Malaysia Book Of Records” as the biggest band.
The 460-member band set up for the first time enlivened the atmosphere for the participants and public at the Dataran Merdeka and its surrounding areas, who watched the show on LED screen displays.
The band members are from the Malaysian Army, Royal Malaysian Navy, Royal Malaysian Air Force, Police, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, Fire and Rescue Department, Civil Defence Force, Prison Department, People’s Volunteers Corps (Rela), Immigration Department, and Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
The band was led by Muzik Pancaragam Gabungan director-general Major Mohd Rizal Mohd Noor from RMAF.
