Music GNews

It has been 3 weeks since my last entry. Lots and lots have happened in that short span of time, to prove the adage that time does indeed fly. First of all………

In my last entry I mentioned that we would be having a show by the Tux in the Music Museum. The two weekend shows were a success. People left the show, smiling, as they enjoyed 2 hours of fun, laughter and more importantly good music from artists, that if you think about it, were really from another generation. No knock on the current crop of singers out there now, but the music and talent that was showed those two nights are a miles apart from what you hear (or see) now. Mr. C or Ryan Cayabyab said, “Emy and I are so happy to see your show. The whole time on the way home we could not stop gushing about the love we felt, and be reminded of how excellent all the artists are.  It is a great generation of performers. Sigh.”

Guests for the two nights were, Zsazsa Padilla, Nanette Inventor, Regine Velasquez, John Lesaca, Gary Valenciano and Kuh Ledesma. They each performed a duet with the Tux, as well as solo numbers which were all well applauded by the crowd. For the finale, two former Tux members, Manolo Tanquilot and Zeb Zuniga, both of The Opera, joined the Tux in singing “Bridge Over Troubled Waters.” Carlo also came out and sang the number with the group. The crowd responded with a standing ovation.

As you know the show was a benefit show with the proceeds going to Carlo’s chemo treatments and after 2 shows, we were still short of our target goal. So a repeat of the show was quickly decided. Unfortunately, Zsazsa, John, and Kuh had prior commitments already and couldn’t make it to the repeat. In their stead, Marin Nievera, Pops Fernandez and Vernie Varga readily said yes to guest. The repeat was another sold out success. Thanks everyone for supporting Carlo and the Tux.
