Desmond De Silva - King of Baila

Dear Bloggers,
I have had the musical pleasure of working with the Band Exceed on several occassions in London. I have listened and watched them blossom into a SHOW BAND and in my opinion the best Sri Lankan
outfit doing the London circuit.Their ability to create a special sound whilst admittedly doing covers should make the composers of the said covers happy.I worked with EXCEED at the IMPERIAL COLLEGE SRI LANKAN STUDENTS ASSOCIATION annual dinner dance in February 2010 which co-incidentally was my last performance in the UK.The band Exceed exceeded themselves that
night and I saw a flawless and seamless performance by them and the backing they gave Damian and myself showed the true class of musicianship they possess.

It must be said that all the members of the band hold responsible full time jobs, and to perform at this level shows the dedication and the drive they all possess to function with such proffessionalism.I have been in show biz for the last 47 years and  it was an experience working with EXCEED I will treasure. I have now relocated to Australia after 24 years in the United Kingdom, I will miss the London scene and everything that goes with it.

Warmest regards from sunny Sydney.
Desmond De Silva
