2011 Tanduay Rhum Rockfest Year 5 with Tanduay First Five and more

Today, I was invited to Tanduay Rhum Rockfest Conference to share with you rockin' for this year's 2011 Tanduay Rhum Rockfest Year 5.

Rico Blanco performs "Ngayon"

Ngayon performance

To better capture the story of the Tanduay Rhum Rockfest, Tanduay has partnered with Rico Blanco in making his new single "Ngayon".  He played this live today and it was awesome!  It was meaningful and spiritual.  I'm sure "Ngayon" will be a big hit soon.  We also had a chance to talk with him one-on-one.  He entertained all our questions patiently and sincerely.  When asked what inspires him with his songs, he told us that God provided us with a lot of beautiful things you just take some parts of it, mix it and it becomes uniquely yours.  His inspirations are not just songs but everything around him like experience, movies and more.  It's amazing that we share the same  insight in life.  That's how I get my inspiration from blogging too.

The Tanduay First Five
For the 3rd year, Tanduay brings together the biggest line-up of bands ever assembled in Philippine Music History.  The Tanduay First Five casts Chicosci, Sandwhich, Kamikazee, and new comers Wolfgang and Parokya ni Edgar.  These bands will tour in 30 cities nationwide.  Surely, you can't miss out their visit in your city!
The Power of Five. A League of One.  Tanduay First Five.  The Legacy Continues.

2011 Tanduay Rhum Rockfest Year 5
The 2011 Tanduay Rhum Rockfest Year 5 is biggest rock show in the country that every one has been waiting for as the Tanduay will showcase 30 popular bands from all generations.   The Tanduay First Five will be joined by different acts from every rock genre: classic, metal, emo and pop rock.  It's time to Rock On, Pilipinas!

Tanduay Rhum's First Five past and present will take the center stage to set the whole night on fire!  Paco Arespacochaga is flying from the United States just to join the event.  Also fan will get to witness the comeback of Ebe Dancel.

Tanduay's support the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM)
Tanduay Distiller's Inc. is the maker of a wide array of world class spirits proven by its 146 international awards.  It has continuously supported and sponsored Filipino artists. During the rockfest, Tanduay will also announce its support for Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) for the further growth of our music industry.

It's great that Tanduay has decided to partner with Pinoy Rock Bands in reaching out the Filipino Youth.  Pinoy Rock has always reflected the Filipino life and spirit.   Pinoy Rock is indeed one of the foundations of our Original Pilipino Music (OPM).  Pinoy Rock has and always will be an important element in my life.   I recall my college days when our school would invite different bands to play at the amphitheater.  It was always crowded that we had to peek through the third floor just to watch.  Now, I seldom have the chance to watch my favorite bands play live so it's so awesome that its almost time for this year's 2011 Tanduay Rhum Rockfest Year 5.  So, let me share with you the details.
