An Interview with Lougee and Ali Alejandro!



One Friday night, we met in person two of the country's rock icons Lougee Basabas  and Ali Alejandro. The two were both part of the Pinoy alternative rock band Mojofly.

Mojofly were the band responsible for the hit songs like "Mata" and "Tumatakbo" - two of the songs we loved with my college bestfriend. The said songs somewhat reflected our college love lives for the said year.

Lougee and Ali had their gig in Tambayan Sa Kanto dubbed as "Togs Sa Kanto." Right after their performance, we interviewed the two icons. And here is our video interview with them:



That was actually my second time to meet Ali. I first met and interviewed him in 7TH High, BGC as he was also the drummer of Chris Cayzer during the said gig. Yes, Ali is the son of the OPM icon Hadji Alejandro and of course the sister of the OPM diva Rachel Alejandro.

Meanwhile, that was my first time to meet Lougee. Yes, she is the lead vocalist of Mojofly. The said band was renamed to Delara composing of the same members of the band. As I've narrated in my previous post, Lougee became a mainstay of "Eat Bulaga" and already appeared in the different TV commercials and print advertisements.

In the video, Lougee and Ali revealed that they were set to return on TV via an exciting new TV show. They didn't yet disclose the said TV program but definitely, all of us were excited for it!  

Lougee and Ali were regular performers of Tambayan Sa Kanto. Every month, they showcased different performance in the said bar that offers all type of Filipino cuisines.

Well if you want to enjoy good food while listening to good music, visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the ground floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

See you again soon Lougee and Ali! It was such a great night to jam with you! (RCB)

Rockin' with Mojofly's Lougee and Rocky!



Way back in college, me and my bestfriend truly loved the songs called "Tumatakbo" and "Mata" which were both popularized by the Pinoy alternative rock band Mojofly. Their music and the meanings of their songs truly fitted us that time. And because of their music, yes, we eventually love the band!

After seven years, I'm glad that I finally met in person the voice behind the band we like most. She's no other than Ms. Lougee Basabas or better known as Lougee. Lougee had her very successful performance in Tambayan Sa Kanto's "Togs Sa Kanto" gig one Friday night! 

At first I didn't know Lougee since she is part of the band for many times. Until I met and talked with her, we found that she is the lead vocalist and the leader of the band Mojofly who popularized the songs we love!

Well to refresh your mind about the songs I'm talking about, I've brought you the music videos of their popular and our college favorite songs "Tumatakbo" and "Mata." Let's watch these:

And of course, I took my opportunity to have her together in photos. Check out our rockin' photos above and below this post:  



During my interview with Lougee, she revealed that their band Mojofly was renamed to Delara. Until the members of the group went solo.

It's also great to know that the OPM icon Hadji Alejandro's son and Rachel's brother Ali Alejandro is also part of their band. And he is always present in their regular gigs!

More on Lougee, she was part of Eat Bulaga's dabarkads. She even endorsed many products and appeared in the different TV commercials before. 

On my succeeding post, I'll share with you my video interview with Lougee and Ali! So stay tune! (RCB)

Meeting the "Moonlight Over Paris" Acoustic Prince Paolo Santos!

Who can't forget his greatest love song "Moonlight Over Paris" which revitalized the return of the acoustic love songs in the music scene?! Well, I'm only a college student that time when the said song dominated the different radio stations giving rise to original prince of acoustic music, Paolo Santos!

Again, I was so privileged to meet and talk with this Acoustic Prince Paolo Santos one Friday night in Tambayan Sa Kanto. On the said night, Paolo is featured and performed in the resto-bar's "Acoustic Night."      

Well before  anything else, check out our cool photos together:




It seems that we've traveled back in the early part of 2000's as Paolo played his music. He made me reminisce my college love stories as he sang his undying hit "Moonlight Over Paris" and his very own rendition of the previous hit song "Because of You."    

Aside from the said songs, Paolo even serenaded us with his versions of the love songs like "Overjoyed," "Close," "Perfect Day," and "I'll Be Over You."

Paolo is not only a good singer, he is also a perfect guitarist! He played his own instrument which is his guitar while singing. Check him out performing below:



While enjoying the music of Paolo, me and my good friend Carlo even enjoyed the foods served to us by Tambayan Sa Kanto. I ordered my favorite kare-kare (this time kare-kareng bagnet) and tinapa rice while my friend enjoyed pancit guisado. And for drinks, I was satisfied by the banana-papaya shake while Carlo by iced margarita!    

Those were just some of the great foods served by Tambayan Sa Kanto. The restaurant was known as an All-Filipino Cuisine Restaurant Cafe as it serves all types of Pinoy regional foods!

And yes, aside from the Pinoy foods, Tambayan also shows "Acoustic Nights" every Friday and Saturday nights featuring the different famous and talented Filipino artists! And one of these is Paolo Santos!

Want to enjoy great music while enjoying Filipino dishes at the same time?! Well, come and visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the ground floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

So let's go, tara, tambay na! (RCB)

Rocky Talks with South Border's "Aspog" Vince Alaras!



When I was in college, I really love the songs like "Rainbow," "Love of My Life," and "Ikaw Nga" from the popular RnB boyband South Borders. Those songs were somewhat part of my college love life. And I really felt inspired listening to them.    

I'm so glad that I finally met in person one Friday night the band's lead vocalist Vince Alaras in Tambayan Sa Kanto's "Acoustic Night." That was his very first gig in the resto-bar which offers an all Filipino cuisine!        

I talked with Vince via a cool video. In our conversation, he shared some interesting things about himself. According to him, he was called by his barkada as "aspog" which means "Astig na Pogi!" And from that term, they derived the name of their band.

Vince also expressed his gratitude and experience performing in Tambayan. Here is our cool video:  



This Saturday night, May 18, 2013, Vince will have his second gig in Tambayan Sa Kanto. Expect to hear once again his team revitalizing their hit love songs! And of course, watch him performing his very own rendition of the classic love songs!

Tambayan Sa Kanto's Acoustic Nights happen every Friday and Saturday from 9pm to 2am. The resto-bar is located at the GF of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

See you again Vince this Friday! (RCB)

Me and the heartthrob crooner Markki Stroem already met many times now in different events. But two weeks ago, we had a special night with him!

Well, Markki is the only male acoustic artist who can truly give a new life to the songs originally performed by female singers. Some of these are Adele's "Rumor Has It," Rihanna's "Diamonds," and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."   

Just like we always do, we pose photos together:



But that night was different... We posed for the first time a wacky shot! And here how Rocky and Markki turned wacky:

I even brought my friends to Markki. And yes, they truly enjoyed the performance and humor of Markki in the stage! Markki didn't only sing, he even moved around and serenaded the audience! My two female friends were really "kotang-kota" with him!    

And of course, we posed a shot with the hot guy!



Markki performs every other Wednesday in the APEX Lounge of 7TH High in BGC. Then every Friday and Saturday night, he is in Bagaberde 101 resto-bar sharing his great lovely talent.

And of course, he let us hear his own acoustic version of Rihanna's "Diamonds". And take note, he dedicated this song to me! He mentioned my name before singing it! :)

While getting inspire with his love songs, we at the same time were also enjoying the foods served by "Tambayan Sa Kanto." On the said night, we had the Baked Tilapia and Enpanada for dinner plus the crunchy home-made Turon for dessert. Definitely, our hearts and stomachs were satisfied both at the same time!    

"Tambayan Sa Kanto" is actually a resto-bar which serves all authentic Filipino cuisines of the different regions. It even offers an "Eat-All-You-Can" buffet promo during lunch and dinner for only Php399. And during Friday and Saturday nights, they serenade the audience with "Acoustic Nights" wherein different artists perform on the center stage.
