Very recently, the Greenwich #UltimateBandkada Fest 2016 came to a close. With the grand prize winner, walking away with not just Php100,000 as a grand prize, but deals in recordings and management contracts as well.
Greenwich #UltimateBandkada is in its second season. From more than a hundred bands that auditioned, the top 8 had made it to the finals. And the final challenge? To create music for their Greenwich Jingle. If you think that doing that is difficult enough, they had to meld two different genres of sound as an additional feat! And you know what? All the bands were absolutely amazing.
Of course, I had my personal favorites, but I can’t deny the talent and dedication all these bands must have put to create their stunning performances. However, all contests must have their Winners, and only one band can emerge victorious. Introducing, the winner of the second season of the #UltimateBandkada: PLETHORA!
Combining Rock and a genre that is more Pop, Plethora created music that is addictingly energetic! With the unbelievable catchy-ness of their melody, Plethora captured the not just the audience’s attention and hearts, but the judges’ as well.
The First Runner Up was ABCG Band. Their performance definitely captured my heart. This band is definitely a personal favorite of mine. I loved the freshness of their sound and how much passion you can feel in their performance. It doesn’t hurt that it feels like they’ve all performed a million times before. Comfortable on stage, the awkwardness just doesn’t exist in their performance. You can truly focus on their great music.
Second runner up goes to Happy Ending. With their very pop-y music, they achieved a high powered and sprightly performance that had the crowd wild in their seats.
All of these would not be possible without the delicious food that Greenwich served all the guests. Aside from pizza, I truly enjoyed their pasta dishes! A great combination with the music that rocked my socks off, for sure! I can’t wait for the next Greenwich #UltimateBandkada next year!
