With TrueFaith at LausGroup Com­plex Nov. 3 ‘must-be-there’at Den­cio’s

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORY! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO— Plot the date for an un­for­get­table night— Novem­ber 3— as renowned Pi­noy band TrueFaith ser­e­nades mu­sic lovers from all over at Den­cio’s, one of the Event Cen­tre Restos lo­cated at the LausGroup Com­plex in the City of San Fer­nando.

True Faith is one of the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar and ac­com­plished bands. True Faith’s Med­win Marfil, Eu­gene Marfil, Macky Ma­caventa, Al­lan El­gar

Jake Lu­macad and Kaka Quisumb­ing ini­tially belted out mid-’80s new wave sounds for its breezy pop for­mula, but even­tu­ally ven­tured fur­ther into the Philip­pine main­stream, firmly em­brac­ing mid­dle of the road ra­dio. Their mu­sic is best de­scribed as a blend of jazz, folk, pop and rock mu­sic.

The band’s song “Per­fect,” a ro­man­tic bal­lad with jan­gling gui­tars and long­ing vo­cals opened the doors to the masses, a much larger crowd than the cult of fans who watched them per­form new wave cov­ers in small clubs. Signed True Faith’s 1995 al­bum, Build, was the group’s first big smash, el­e­vat­ing it to su­per­star sta­tus and boost­ing the band’s pop­u­lar­ity.

The band’s “Awit Para Sa Kanya” brought the band into the pub­lic spot­light, bol­stered by Mem­o­ries Are Cheap: The Best of Truefaith in 1993-2000, a tes­ti­mony of its suc­cess and a look at how the group evolved from its new wave roots to be­com­ing an easy lis­ten­ing icon. The al­bum fea­tured a new track “Kung OK Lang Sa’Yo”, a onea­cous­tic gui­tar bal­lad plus a remix ver­sion of “Get It On”.

“Faith­fools”, the moniker the fans call them­selves, fancy TrueFaith’s hits like “Per­fect,” “Su­masarap ang Gis­ing,” “Dedma,” “Alaala” and “Kundi Rin Lang Ikaw,” among many others.

TrueFaith be­lieves that they will keep on mak­ing mu­sic as long as they are able to. It is this en­dur­ing pas­sion and faith for Filipino mu­sic that shall fuel this drive to per­form and cre­ate some of the best Pi­noy songs any­one will ever hear.

And while sa­vor­ing the night with TrueFaith and fea­tured artists Sileph, Kristel Estepa and Melissa Undag, en­joy Den­cio’s all-time fa­vorites and de­lec­ta­ble Pi­noy spe­cial­ties like Sisig, Ini­haw na Liempo, Pi­nakbet, and KareKar e.

Mark the date: Novem­ber 3— “must-be-there” at Denci o’s!
