Today also I was looking for the bar which has live band . I arrived on session road around 7 : 30. My favorite bar concoction usually starts performance at 9 PM maybe , so until then I ended up looking for another bar in down town .
The taxi driver recommended a dance club called Alberto’s to me. Over time I found out . I’m sure the it is an long established club ’cause the first letter “A” was lost. lol
Juna「What kind of bar here is?」
guard 「Live disco. ５０PH entrance fee. 」
「Ah okey, is it possible to join the live band?」
「Ye..Yeah.. sorry ma’am 」
What a shame. It couldn’t be helped..
After that , band sounds caught my years . I realized the place has a good equipment . The song I heard on the road was Le freak by chic.
When I arrived at the place, I asked to security guard .
「Excuse me, is it possible to join the performance?」
「Maybe …. 11 PM. I ‘ll ask the band . Let me know your number . 」
「I see. Thanks. Now it is too early , so I ‘ll be back here around 11 PM.」
「Okey , anyway text me then if you want to join .」
「K~ see you later.」
I thought I can afford to go to Concoction before PADI’S POINT. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough money, so I ended up going there on foot.
When I asked some people how to get to the bar concoction , many people said to me just take a taxi because it is not located within walking distance .
Then, I thought they just don’t like walking . I do like walking ,so it must be not so far for me.
It was true. ; (
I am so sorry that I doubt them. If I’m familiar with around here, it would be no problem. Still ,I don’t know well here in Baguio, so I felt it was so far. And a little scared ‘ cause the lights on the way ware only few… : (
Finally, I reached there. The atmosphere was kind of different with usual since they were playing hardcore….lol
It was full of young people. Probably the band is very popular . I thought the seat is unavailable .
Therefore I gave up and went back to PADI’S POINT.
The band was performing some American hit songs . Such as Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars .
All of a sudden, the vocalist said ” Japanese ○×△☆♯♭●□~~”through the microphone. I couldn’t catch what he said, but I thought it is the time to join them since there was no Japanese except me there.
I went up to the stage, and waited .
I felt awkward ‘ cause I was sitting on the chair on the stage. lol shy..lol
The good things for me was that I could watch their performance at close range!
Surprisingly , They all are singers ,in addition to instrument players. Above them, the voices ware fantastic!!! So I couldn’t helped being surprised every time that the vocalist changed.
After that, I borrowed the bass guitar from him .↑♪♪
Thank you for your kindness ; ) !!
the vocalist「Juna? Where is your friend??」
Juna「No… I ‘m alone.」
「Why !? lol Your boyfriend is in Japan!?」
「There is no my boyfriend anywhere. ; (」
Over time, our jamming started.
The bass guitar player was a 5 strings player . lol
Unfortunately , I have never had a 5 strings bass guitar. It confused me so much. ; (
Still, the bass guitar player guided me … How kind person you are.. Thanks a million.
And then, he asked me “Can you play solo?” about my ears when I was playing the bass guitar.
“Don’t worry, just a little ! try!!”
I couldn’t play solo as I want to… ; ( I’m so embarrassed .
Anyway, I just focused on my play then.
The audience got hot little by little.!! Finally, I was relieved when I saw their satisfied faces .
And, I and the guitar player had a good conversation in bass&guitar. ; D He was amazing !!
I got more curious about Filipinos musicians. I hope I could stay longer, but time fries. In particular , I wanted to visit Manila and Cebu for music,too.
I had a great time : ) Thanks everyone.
I look so happy. lol
