Shagies, ever wondered how it started and got it’s name? Well, here is a bit of history…Once upon a time, 
Hashim, the guitarist was serving his National Service in the Singapore Navy Band. 
At that time he was a slacker…unkempt hair, sloppy t-shirts and had short, sharp pointed beard. 
A bandmate came along and called him Shaggy! (mimicking Scooby Doo's voice) 
Shaggy was one of the cartoon characters from the show Scooby Doo, hence the name Shagies evolved! 
He then formed the band and entered a band competition called the Yamaha Combo Time in 1986.
They finished as runners-up and, of course, the desire to perform nightly became stronger and stronger.
Professionally Shagies started performing in clubs since 1987.
At that time, band members came and went …it started with a six-piece band 
playing at the then SAF NCO Club at Beach Road.
Then came the auditions at Anywhere Pub where Tania used to perform.
It was scary, cause we had to play during a full house weekend crowd!
Luckily we managed to get the gig and worked there for about one and a half years. 
The big break came when we were offered to play at the then Europa International Plaza. 
It was a big hit then! We were having fun, got good reviews from the media, party every weekend. 
It was a long, long time ago…band members came and went…from five musicians to a seven-piece band. 
Shagies performed in many clubs,local and regional and events.
We appeared in the media, blah, blah, blah
Come join and party with us!!!
