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

“Although Fitzgerald remains her primary inspiration, Yanofsky does not consider herself a jazz singer. “I consider myself an ‘everything’ singer,” she says. “Jazz is definitely my first love and I will always want to sing it, but I also love to sing pop, R&B, blues, and everything else, and Nikki definitely reflects that. For me, performing isn’t about fame and fortune, it’s about expressing myself through music. I’d be just as happy singing in a restaurant as I am in front of a huge crowd as long as I’m singing. The fact that I could put out my own album at such a young age is a dream come true.”
