Love for Hanson
Jul 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Last March, one of my teenage dreams finally came true. I got to meet Hanson (Taylor specially) in person! I even got shake their hands. Haha I know pathetic for those who aren’t fans but for fellow fans they would totally get me and how I must be feeling then. I dreamt about that moment for 15 years! Wow.

One thing that came back together with my love for them is the love for their music. Read the rest of this entry »

Earth, Wind and Fire Live!
Nov 30th, 2009 by niceyfemme

I wanna go to their concert in the Philippines on 5 December 2009!

I love their song Every Now and Then…… I don’t know why but I love singing along to this…. Feeling sentimental for unknown reasons…..

I remember I always thought it would be great to watch them sing this song live…. I always figured it will in Araneta Coliseum and ticket price will be Php5000 for the bests seats.

I plan to get the cheapest seat if ever hehehe….. My goal is to just listen to them sing this song live, in person.

BUT. BIG BUT.

Sooo expensive! 🙁

“THE ORIGINAL”
EARTH WIND and FIRE

LIVE IN MANILA

Presented by
Offshore Entertainment Production Pte Ltd
Lifestyle 7

Nothing beats the original as often stated. With that consideration, Filipino music fans are in for a big treat come next month as the real people behind the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire comes to Manila for a live show that is sure to be no less than spectacular.

The one-night affair strikingly titled The Original Earth, Wind & Fire Live In Manila happens on December 5, 8 pm at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) Reception Hall in Pasay City. Organizers of the highly anticipated concert uses the operative word `original` to essentially address that bit of confusion among EWF fans who were introduced to a separate act carrying the music and name of the group but not the real faces behind it.

Produced by Offshore Entertainment Production, the upcoming live extravaganza promises to offer the definitive repertoire and performance of a group who `single-handedly introduced sophisticated funk and African folk rhythms to American popular culture.`

Arguably the world`s best show band ever, EWF is best known for their hits Reasons, Fantasy, September, Sing A Song, Boogie Wonderland, After the Love Has Gone, and Let`s Groove. These hits, among others, have become favorite covers for performers, given their generally danceable grooves and high-recall melodies.

EWF is an African-American R&B band formed in Chicago in 1969 by Marurice White, a member of then Ramsey Lewis Trio. His tenor voice that contrasts the falsetto of Philip Bailey is said to be the key interplay that gave the group`s its distinct sound. Bailey did a duet with Phil Collins for the latter`s hit Easy Lover.

In the early 70s, other original members of the group include singer Sherry Scott, percussionist Yackov Ben Israel, White`s brother Verdine, Donny Hathaway, guitarist Michael Beale, Chester Washington, trumpet player Leslie Drayton, trombonist Alex Thomas, and White`s longtime musicmate Wade Flemons. White took the name based on his astrological sign Sagittarius having a primary elemental quality of Fire and seasonal qualities of Earth and Air.

EWF won ten Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards. The group had been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, having sold over 90 million albums worldwide. The staggering sales easily pull them up to rank as the “seventh best selling American band of all time.”

Ticket Prices:

PhP 8,240.00 Reserved Seating
PhP 6,180.00 Patron (Standing only) Less 20% off! (Effective November 25, 2009)
PhP 2,575.00 Standing only

Hmmmmn……. I think it’s just too expensive for what I want. I just want to hear one song to be sang live. Hmmn… It’s in PICC by the way..
