Fete de la Musique: Uniting People with Music
23 June 2012 | Makati City
Had a chance to drop by in Fete de la Musique’s main stage courtesy of a good friend, a music mentor and buddy for all time, Jeff Salindong, good times.
Seen Melinda dela Torre (Baihana), blues band Blue Rats’ awesome vocalist and Cooky Chua (Color It Red vocalist) after Melinda’s performance with the same band. Yes, we were there to be in one with music even for a short period of time. Congrats to this annual Fete, hope to catch it again next year.
The Blue Rats which serves up straight-up electric blues, old-time R&B and blues-based music. The current core lineup in rotation consists of Melinda Torre (also of Baihana, vocals), Joey Puyat (Mother Earth and Kiss the Bride, guitar), Kedy Sanchez (Working Stiffs, vocals and guitar), Johnny Besa (The Breed, bass guitar) Vic Borgaily (KO Jones, drums), Bennii Obana (Overdrive and Tempestuous Jones, drums), Roxy Modesto (Radioactive Sago Project, saxophone), Tom Epperson (harmonica) and Andy Locsin (guitar). -The Blue Rats band profile
