I was 13 years old when my Mom enrolled me to a 20 day drum session with his former student who used to play with Willie Revillame’s rock band back in his low key music career. I remember my first complete song was Hoobastank’s The Reason.
Then I started a band with my high school classmates. We do covers for Sandwich, Kamikazee, Sugarfree, Chicosci, Black Sabbath and Slapshock. We played our sets during fiestas around Pasig. We experience the best life starting a band during the prime years of OPM music and renting a studio for 200 pesos/hour was a major deal and the longest, most exciting 1 hour of our lives. People would express how cool that is, having a teenage girl playing the drums with boys as her bandmates.
That was surely some of the best days of my teenage life.
Fast forward 15 years when I had the chance to play again in front of my workmates and a younger crowd tbh (Hahaha) during our Anniversary Party.
t was the kind of happiness that completed both the person that I am now and the inner heavy metal kid inside me waiting all these years to feel the adrenaline rush of holding the drum sticks, pound the snare and hit the cymbals like no one else’s business.
That night was fuck*ng perfect ❤
Little drummer girl is and will always be inside and when it’s time to go heavy metal hard? She sure is to pound!
Hi, Mama! Hope you love our set from up there! 😘
