Mister also known as Mr. is a Hong Kong, Chinese rock band composed of lead vocalist Alan Po, guitarists Ronny Lay and Quincy Tam, bassist and backing vocalist Desmond Tam, and drummer Tom To.

The quintet originated from the underground indie scene where they were known as White Noise. Their breakthrough performance was their gig at Alan Tam's birthday party. They were subsequently recommended to Universal Music by himself who was deeply impressed by their skill and talent.[1]

In 2008, Mister released their debut EP titled Mr. (pronounced "Mister", as per band name). It was later re-released as part of their second effort: If I Am....

In 2009, Mister released their first LP titled If I Am...[2] It spawned a number of hit singles, notably "If I Were Eason Chan"[3] and "Mr. Tam",[4] the first being an homage to popular canto pop artist Eason Chan and the latter as a tribute to Alan Tam.

In early 2010, Mister released a compilation titled Like Black,[5] the album contained two new tracks, a mandarin version of "If I Were Eason Chan" and seven remixed versions of songs from their previous efforts If I Am... and Mr.
