As some of you may already know, my boyfriend fiancé has one of the coolest jobs as Marketing Head of JB Music. That means he gets to be around musicians and instruments all the time. He does an exceptionally great job at it because he’s marketing something he actually loves: MUSIC. It makes me so happy when he’s happy!

So when JB Music decided to throw a huge party to celebrate their 40 years in the industry, I was one of the first people unofficially invited thanks to Jim! JB Music celebrated by honoring 40 of the music industry’s most influential because they believe they wouldn’t even exist without the Filipino musikero. I was then officially invited when I found out that my dad was part of the list and I was to accept his award.

The event was held at Valkyrie, The Palace. It was, of course, my first time there because I don’t go clubbing haha! It was a REALLY beautiful space!


My handsome hubba hubba hubby-to-be hehe


At the start of the night, they awarded their top dealers!


Then they went on to award the 40 Most Influential in batches of 10. One of the awardees performed from each batch and the first one to grace the stage was Ebe Dancel!


Our table buddies – Ely Buendia, his brother, and his manager Day Cabuhat


Next up was The Dawn and they gratuitously performed Salamat for all of us!


It was nice seeing Erica dela Cruz of Sony Philippines, Raymund Marasigan, and Rico Blanco


My date for the night since Jim had to run around to make sure everything was going well.


Love you, Candyyy

And then I had to do some fan girl moments just because.

I tried on Erica’s Sony jacket because it’s super cool. It took a million tries to achieve a fashion blogger pose hahaha


We SUPER wanted to eat the sliders


But Candy advised us to eat only the meat and leave the bread behind so we wouldn’t be so guilty. That’s exactly what we did.



Thank you so much for an amazing night, JB Music!! Rayms and I had so much fun that we ended up exchanging each other’s awards to take home (I accepted my dad’s award on his behalf). Haha! Okay lang, sabi namin friends forever naman kami.


Here’s what Jim said when I asked what JB Music has planned for the coming year:

We plan on having a stronger connection with our customers. Recently, we’ve had more customer interaction with our online community. Next year, we plan on launching our official JB Music Youtube channel for content and interaction. At the same time, our website will be renovated and will allow customers to order and have items delivered straight to their homes.

Follow JB Music on Facebook because they’ve got amazing promos for the holidays! https://www.facebook.com/JBMusicPh
