Legends of Pinoy Folk Rock together in show

Viva Concerts and Events will cap another successful year by staging the musical event of 2010.

It’s called Ugat, The Legends of Pinoy Folk Rock to be held on Dec. 3 at the Araneta Coliseum.

The legends are no less than the guys who started it all —- the Juan dela Cruz Band composed of Joey “Pepe” Smith (Balong Malalim), Mike Hanopol (Laki Sa Layaw, Jeproks) and Wally Gonzalez (Wally’s Blues). They were also responsible for Teacher’s Enemy Number 1, Pinoy Antiquities and the iconic Himig Natin.

The Juan dela Cruz Band will be performing for the first time together with Sampaguita, Queen of Pinoy Rock of Bonggahan, Tao and Laguna fame; Lolita Carbon of Asin and Nene with the hits Masdan Mo Ang Kapaligiran, Pagbabalik, Bayan Kong Sinilangan and Itanong Mo Sa Mga Bata; Heber Bartolome and Banyuhay with Tayo‘y Mga Pinoy, Nena and Almusal; Gary Granada of Kahit Konti, Salamat Musika, Bahay and Mabuti Pa Sila; and Florante with the hits Handog, Ako’y Pinoy, Abakada, Sana and Pinay, who will be flying in from the US purposely for Ugat. New folk rock star Noel Cabangon of the big hit Kanlungan will also join the show.

“It will be a rockin’ night, very nostalgic,” promises Roxanne Lapuz who is directing the show.

(Note: Tickets to Ugat, The Legends of Pinoy Folk Rock are now available at all SM Ticketnet outlets and at the Araneta Coliseum. Prices are P2,500 [Patron], P2,000 [Patron B], P1,500 [Lower Box], P1,000 [Upper Box A], P600 [Upper Box B], and P300 [General Admission]).

I want to see them perform in stage! This won't happen again, they would really make my night one of the best nights in my existence. Hubby and I both love and like them. Aside from the fact they have a one of a kind voice, their songs are very sensible if I would compare it to these days song na puro pa-cute.
