    How well do you know the quotes from the blockbuster movies? Join in the trivia quizzes based on movies.

    Join the dynamic duo Jack & Rai in a fun and relaxing evening with music we all love.

    Starting off as solo acoustic musicians more than a decade ago, Jack & Rai came together in 2002 to form an acoustic duo with a chemistry that borders telepathic. Their easy-going and engaging natures makes any audience feel right at home when watching them. The duo earned themselves Elle Magazine's Musician's of the Year in 2009, as well as M:Idea Youth Choice's 'Band I Wanna throw myself at' in 2010 and 2011. As always, they look forward to spreading more love and music in the years to come.
