Sneak Peak Of The Performers.
Anthony travels and performs with his Band "Anthony in Party". The performances in their song and dance, which incorporates the Folk music of Tamil Nadu conjures images of the flowing Vaigai and Poigai rivers and of rich rice harvests brought into the granaries in carts.
Anthony usually sporting his characteristic bandana and urumi (a traditional double headed folk drum from Tamil Nadu) on a sling will always prove that he is the man of the show with his dance-music performance, cheeky onstage banter and infallible energy.
Foxy Girls band started off as a group of 4 girls or rather models who were trained as singers. However, the current members of the band have evolved and are now represented by Jessie, Moza and Jeje. The band has often performed in many events like product or hotel launches as well as events produced by private television stations.
The band have also won many awards namely the AMI Awards 2012 in the category of Best Group, Best Dance Production Work and Best R&B production work.
This band from Philippines formed since the Summer of 2006 consisting of Marc Liwanag on guitar and vocals, Lakshmi Kirtan das Ramirez on upright bass and vocals, Archimedes Archie Lacorte on tenor and alto sax, and Steven Hamilton Vasquez Mora on drum.
The music that they create, that is what making them so special. A lot of other bands tried to do jazz or rockabilly, but no one tried to combine these two types of music and that is exactly what Bambol Rockers do. A lot of music that they are playing are originals. They use the superiority of sound of their kundiman-rockabilly mish-mash and adds a element of Filipino pride.
But their main goal is to go back to the classics they all love and recover a new appreciation for it in light of today’s world. Their intention is to influence the younger generation to take a look at the past and see where their music comes from, to create a renewed interest in the Golden Fifties. Not just for the music, but the lifestyle, the dancing and the vintage attire, as well. They also want to make their mark on the Original Pilipino Music scene and help raise its level of artistry. They want to be remembered for music that is positive and fun.
They have performed at many international music events in Japan, Italy, U.S.A., China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand. One of Boy Thai’s original members, Sekpol Unsamran (aka Koh Mr.Saxman) has become one of Thailand’s most accomplished artistes and performed at the Borneo Jazz in Miri in 2012 and was a big hit with the crowds.
The band is made up of 6 talented musicians, Saranyu Suwannasoonthon (Saxophone), Paron Yuenyong (Ranad–Thai Xylophone), Pakee Navee (Bass), Ekkapong Saelim (Drums), Weerasak Hambubpaka (Keyboard) and Arnon Suttjaridjun (Thai Drums).
Melissa was also a singer in the group Hairee and Angelo. She was attached to the early establishment of this group in 2000, but after a while she stepped out of the group and became a solo artist in 2003. Since then, she continues to be a recording artist for a local record company. In August 2012, Melissa has set up her own company, which was called Platinum World Network Sdn. Bhd.
After 19 years of singing, Melissa received several awards for her dedicated work in this industry. Among the many achievement are the Best Female Singer (IBAN), Dayak Music Awards 2008, Winner of the Most Popular Songs SMS voting (Mutus Ati), Rhythm Champion Award Ruai, Cats FM 2012; Best Female Singer, Dayak Music Awards (DAMA) year 2012.
