Pinoy Definitely Rocks

Pinoy definitely rocks! The Pinoy Rock concert held at Aladdin Kigdom on 29th of February 2008 was a huge success!!! The main performance started with Gloc 9 followed by Pupil (Ely Buendia's new band), Francis M, Kamikazee and finally, Parokya ni Edgar. Except for Parokya, it's my first time to watch these Pinoy performers in a concert.



Gloc 9 and Francis M are solo performers so they didn't have a live accompaniment. Ely Buendia rendered many of Eraserhead's old hits such as Pare ko, Ang Hulling El Bimbo, Alapaap, etc. Francis M performed his timeless hits such as Ito ang Gusto ko and Mga Kababayan ko. Kamikazee draw the crowd's attention with Jay's humor and the band's spectacular performance. Kamikazee was the ultimate performer of the night! After Kamikazee, it was Parokya ni Edgar's turn to render old and new hits. Towards the end of their performance, Francis M, Gloc 9 and Jay of Kamikazee joined Parokya ni Edgar for the grand finale. The concert was very successfuland we really had a blast despite standing in the Aladdin g rounds for hours. Pinoy defnitely rocks!

I can just imagine the racket they must have created. you're lucky to have all of them in one concert. I doubt if they'd agree to the same set up here.

@kengkay
oo nga eh, dami ng nadidiscover kahit sa you tube! Di ba kayo na-discover?

@monaco
Back in 1990s there's a summer jam concert in Subic. There were more than 20 bands including the popular ones like after image and introvoys. I cannot forget that concert. I gave up and went home disappointed. Madaling araw na di pa nangangalahati yong concert!

@ferdz
We did enjoy the night, masakit lang sa legs, tagal namin nakatayo!

@Toni,
I agree. We also watched them in Dubai in 2006.

@Caryn,
You should watch Kamikazee - they are fantastic - medyo may pagka green lang.

@Rachel,
Many performers already held concerts here but it's our first time to watch!
