JB Music has been the musician’s go-to place for the best musical instruments for 40 years. My brilliant husband is the marketing manager of the company and together with his team, they’ve come up with an amazing series of events to honor the unsung heroes that have helped sustain the local music scene.
Picture a dimly-lit place right by the side of the road, noisy people with intoxicated smiles spilling out the gate, bathroom door tightly shut to prevent the strong smell of urine from escaping — sounds a little disgusting but this is my favorite scene. You’ll forget about the dirty tables and unstable chairs when said scene is scored by rock n roll. These places are where I met a lot of my good friends. I love these local rock bars.
JB Music wants to thank these venues by doing what they do best: providing the best musical and audio gear for the best stage possible. There are 5 participating bars competing for the best production night. Each bar needs to come up with the loudest and biggest JB Music night utilizing its own strengths in a no holds barred competition as they put up the best show on their given night.
MAY 8 – BLACK KINGS BAR
MAY 15 – SAGUIJO
MAY 16 – B-SIDE
MAY 22 – ROUTE 196
MAY 23 – TOMATO KICK (MORATO)
This is such a treat for my fellow music lovers. I am SOOOO going to all the gigs. I went to the one in BKB last Friday and it was packed. I’m preparing myself for the upcoming ones!! The winning bar will be chosen through a set of criteria composed of social media voting, a special panel of judges and final voting at the finale. The grand prize will be a brand new band and audio set-up from JB Music’s top brands Laney, Ludwig, Zildjan, QSC and Hercules.
This is extra special to me because as part of a band that regularly plays in these venues, I’m looking forward to an upgraded sound system for the winning bar!! While there will be only one winner, all competing bars have automatically taken home a brand new guitar amplifier to jumpstart their gear upgrade. So happy, guys. Sayang hindi pwede tumugtog ang Cheats kasi conflict of interest. Hahaha. But this is such a great idea, I’m so proud of JB Music ♥
