Kapamilya Awards 2017

It was a great privilege to be the Musical Director for this event. I witnessed hundreds of ABS CBN workers from all areas of the industry come up and receive awards for service for 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 years.

Incidentally, my first arrangement for ABS CBN has been traced to the year 2003 by the HR department. So I’ve been doing freelance work (as arranger and keyboardist) for the network for 14 years now. Happy

The band performed an opening number sung by Erik Santos, Kyla, Daryl Ong, and Angeline.

Junjun Regalado - Drums
Simon Tan - Bass


Jay Agustin - 2nd Keyboard
Ardie de Guzman - guitar


Rene Martinez - backup vocals
Tanya Bustamante Marquez - backup vocals


We also performed Bamboo’s closing set for the night.

Happy to be transcribing / adapting music for one of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the Philippines. Thank you Jonathan Manalo, Himig Handog’s over-all producer and my very good friend.

I love the song entries for this year! It’s truly a good time for Original Pilipino Music. Lots of fresh and clever ideas in the songs.
