Since Rivermaya’s unsteady moments
when they lost their man frontman, we’ve been left wandering and dumbfounded of
who would take the chance to make the group whole again. It wasn’t a long time
since the band and their management scouted for the gone among the thousand
willing souls. At that momentum, the Rivermaya’s circle and management was left
hanging air in the mid-air, eagerly and patiently waiting and critiquing
walk-in contestants. Among the many daring individuals that perhaps not so
different from the others, one stand and radiates the most that brought comely
resonance on the questers senses. Jayson Hernandez , an 18 year-old fair
skinned; a tall and not so tall guys of height of 5 feet and 8 inches from
Manguisoc, Camarines Norte. One among the 500 hundreds wannabes,one among final thirteen, and the last man
standing at the final day of reckoning. Now the stands with redefined pride
side-by-side with this musical cronies-Mark Escueta, Mike Eldgar, and Japs

Sugarfree never tasted this sweet. For the Sugarfree fanatics, supporters, advocate and whatsoever, this must have been the sweetest evening they’ve ever tasted. Like a sugary sweet stuff, the cool venue, in one phenomenal night of September 29, was swarmed by music hungry earthlings. And these threesome musical hot guys justly gave justice to the masses tickets worth.
It’s a potpourri of a searing hot and cold, cold and hot evening from inside out of the concert’s venue, no other than the famed MusicMuseum strategically nestled at Greenhills Shooping Central, San Juan, Metro Manila. The weather from the outside was gloomy and stormily foreboding; nonetheless it’s not tough enough to arrest the evening event. From the inside, tickets are sold out. Hungry souls are still on the queue for sits, with few more, an SRO (standing room only) audience is almost done.
Just after we have redeemed free passes for press, just waited for few moments for the set to be opened for all those who hold admissions. Of course guys with defined tasks are freewheeling gets access both in the orchestra and backstage.
The event was commenced respectively by the Philippine National Anthem, as spearheaded by Manila Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Chino David. Without much ado, the big night for Sugarfree starts rolling, with audio-video presentation, televised and well documented. A generous applause roared and reverberated the peopled venue as the threesome presence of the band members individually sprouted from somewhere else. Ebe Dancel pulled the first string together with appealing presence which keeps the crowd stirred up to the top of their lungs. Backed by another members Jal Taguibao (on bass) and the recent to their fold Kaka Quisimbing (on drums) together with the strings and wind ensembles of the Manila Symphony Orchestra, off they go rocking the night keeping us hot and elated despite the centralized air conditioning system of the hall.
