East Asia Royale Hoyel had been so generous in bringing music artists in General Santos City to celebrate its festivals. For the 23rd Tuna Festival, the East Asia management will be bringing no less than ELY BUENDIA!

So if you missed the popular Eheads songs, better check this one! Ely would surely make the girls scream for more of the Eheads songs. Click this link for more information.

Thanks to the Gensan News Online Mag, for giving me a complimentary ticket and I was able to watch the ASAP SESSIONISTAS LIVE IN GENSAN CONCERT. (Click this link how i got that ticket)

Sitti and Richard Poon had been my favorites since they started in the music biz, so when they started performing as ASAP Sessionistas, I become an instant fan of the group. Good thing, me and my partner share the same feelings towards them. So when the group came to General Santos City, we made sure not to miss the chance of seeing them perform live.

my forever FAVORITES

September 10, 2010 - The heavy downpour did not stop us from trooping to the event venue. Quarter to Eight, with my complimentary ticket and my boyfriend's discounted ticket at hand, we looked for a good seat, since all the bestest seats are for the very,very,very important people of GenSan (that includes the Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao).

Now for my expectation check.

Screaming and loud and crazy fans are definitely present, but they did not fill the venue. It may be because of the rain, which makes us lazy or may be because of the pricey tickets. But first consider these facts: 1. You are paying for six uber talented artists not just any trying hard performers; 2. Expect numbers of production numbers from the groups where they perform mostly POP songs like songs from Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Jonas Brothers, Michael Jackson and many more. Aside from that, each artists are given their solo time on stage as they perform two songs of their forte; 3. The price you are paying when you are in the provinces is way cheaper compared when you are going to watch them in the Metro. Make that DOUBLE. So, if by chance ASAP SESSIONISTAS will visit your provinces, make sure to save up for them and I'll tell you, it is WORTH IT!

first set with ASAP SESSIONISTAS

Astonishing production numbers. CHECK! Add the sexy G-Force dancers as back-up is awesome. Totally way better than watching them on TV. Watching them sweat it out, as they sing and dance, absolutely PRICELESS.

girls only. Juris: Pagbigyan na natin si Aiza

Phenomenal repertoire. CHECK! Who did not bounced their heads, danced on their seats, waved their hands, sing along to the popular songs the group performed? Listening to them as they sing their famous singles would really melt your heart out! I am just thrilled when they performed few of my favorites like Richard Poon performed "Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko", Sitti sang "Para sa Akin", Duncan did a South Border medley and Nina, singing the controversial "Someday". As they perform, I can attest the versatility of these artists. They may be exceptionally good with their genres but they can do things out of their comfort zone. Undeniably BRILLIANT!

just like playing with style

Voices. voices. voices. Their voices are without a doubt A++++! It was such an experience! Endless goosebumps as you hear each artists belt it out. Aside from the voices, it is evident on the stage their passion for performing to their fans. They are FUN to watch because of the fact that you can see that they too are enjoying. They are not on the stage only because they have to sing for the paying public; they are on the stage to do what they love to do! 

great JOB Sessionistas!

BRAVO for you Duncan, Aiza, Juris, 
Sitti, Richard and Nina!
Thank you that one memorable night!

General Santos City is yet again going to be a venue of a HUGE concert! Special thanks to Denville Music & Production and Record Breaker Events Managements,  Lagao Gymnasium will never be a dull place after all! 

Here comes not just one but six world-class Music artists to perform for the SOCSKSARGEN crowd! They are nothing but great individual artists in their own right and they were put together and became a huge hit for the local and international crowd. Thanks God for ASAP for giving them a weekly stint, making me paste my lazy eyes in front of the boob tube on Sunday afternoons. They are one of the reasons why I watch ASAP XV and here's an ASAP XV-inspired reasons why you should not missed them:

ASAP XV-inspired Reasons

All star music artists in one stage seldom happen here in the City of the Generals. That alone is simply irresistible. It is once-in-a-lifetime they say. Nina belting her greatest hits, Juris melting the hearts of the romantics, Aiza, inspiring the listening audience with her cool voice, Duncan giving everyone a dancing groove, Richard serenading the ladies and of course Sitti enjoying her bossa beat. Oh, what a treat.

Screaming and loud fanatics will surely fill Lagao Gymnasium on September 10 of 2010 and I wont be ashamed in claiming that I am going to be one of those screamers that night. Loud and noisy, screaming for your favorite band or artist is a good way of releasing your stress. What a good way of emancipating yourself from the week-long pressure but to scream all your heart out for the Sessionistas. You will surely go out of the venue light hearted and ready for the long weekend with all smiles.

Astonishing production numbers that is way better than watching them on TV should never be missed. Nothing is comparable in watching the group perform live and in flesh. Watching them sweat it out, as they dance or do a move maybe is priceless.

Phenomenal repertoire that would not only make the crowd go WOW but sing and dance along as well. You cannot have that in Videoke Bars right? Would you like to hear them sing their famous singles live? We would surely drool over Aiza'z rendition of "Perhaps Love", Nina's "Make You Mine", Juris' "I love you, goodbye", Richard Poon's "Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko", Sitti Navarro's "Para sa Akin" and Duncan doing hits from South Border. Expect different genres of music that night. From Soul to RnB to Bossa to Blues. These exceptional artists will be doing their different takes on the pieces they will be performing that night and it will definitely be a fun watch.

Xtremely exciting fact that all of them are no longer GENSAN Virgins. Duncan already had a taste of General Santos way back when his band South Border had a concert at Anchor Driving Range; together with Chin, Juris which was still part of MYMP also did a concert for the Generals already; Sitti Navarro and Richard Poon already had an intimate concert here in General Santos, Sitti performed at Phela Convention Center, while Paseo del Sol for the latter; Aiza Seguerra had her album tour at KCC Mall while Nina made the Generals love her more on her recent concert at Taps and Kokay (former Anchor Driving Range). Isn't it nice to see them once again on our soils, entertaining us one more time? A big plus is, they are TOGETHER. It sure is.

Voices. voices. voices. Hearing these voices to die for LIVE is an ultimate experience for music fans everywhere. The voices of Duncan, Aiza, Juris, Sitti, Richard and Nina. Hear them live or forever be glum.
