The award-wining theatrical masterpiece brings to life the beautiful relationship shared by Shrimad Rajchandraji and Mahatma Gandhi which shaped not only the latter’s spiritual life, but also laid the foundation for India’s Independence. It shows how what began as an honest friendship, progressed to Gandhiji proclaiming Shrimadji as his spiritual mentor. The play practises Gandhiji’s core values of non-violence, selfless service, and intense love; by supporting the construction of a new technologically advanced charity hospital for the underprivileged in South Gujarat, India.

LAMC Productions is proud to announce that the Original voice of Skid Row, Musical Royalty, SEBASTIAN BACH, will perform in Singapore, as part of his upcoming tour, on October 18, 2017 at Kallang Theatre!
Bach’s live shows are a non-stop party filled with all the SKID ROW classics such – “18 and Life”, “Youth Gone Wild”, “I Remember You”, “Monkey Business“, “Slave To The Grind” plus more.
Hailed as one of the finest front men to come out of the late 80’s / early 90’s with one hell of a voice, Sebastian Bach is the personification of pure rock and roll at its finest!
A veteran of short-lived, little-known bands including Herrenvolk, Madame X, V05, and Kid Wikkid, he was living in Canada when in 1987 he received a demo tape from an unknown New Jersey band in search of a lead singer for Skid Row, formed a year earlier by ex-Bon Jovi guitarist Dave “The Snake” Sabo. Signing to Atlantic, Skid Row issued its self-titled debut album in 1989; an opening slot on Bon Jovi’s U.S. tour, combined with heavy MTV airplay of the video “Youth Gone Wild,” launched the band to stardom, and the singles “18 and Life” and “I Remember You” both reached the Top Ten.
Having joined SKID ROW at the ripe young age of 18, BACH began a whirlwind career fuelled with sex, drugs and rock and roll alongside large amounts of touring and Gold & Platinum accolades.
Skid Row’s second album, 1991’s Slave to the Grind, became the first ever hard rock album to debut at #1. In 1996 when he ventured off on his own where he created acclaimed solo material and his various collaborations with musicians across all genres. The album Bring ‘Em Bach Alive arrived two years later, followed by a live DVD (Forever Wild) in 2004 and Angel Down in 2007. Since his departure from Skid Row in the mid 90’s, Sebastian Bach still remains one of the most relevant rock figures in pop culture today, with three solo records, network television appearances on MTV, VH1 and CMT, guest appearances on Gilmore Girls, Trailer Park Boys, Californication and other popular television shows, and several acting stints on and off Broadway.
Bach’s most recent album, Give ‘Em Hell impressively, landed on the U.S. Top Hard Rock and Top 200 Billboard charts, proving his prowess decades after his initial debut. Throughout his career, Sebastian Bach has sold over twenty million records both as the lead singer of Skid Row and as a solo artist. the albums Skid Row and Slave To The Grind, which became the first ever hard rock album to debut at #1.
“Bach has never sounded better.” – Jam Magazine
Last year, he released his book “18 And Life on Skid Row”, an exhilarating, whip-smart and brutally honest memoir.
