Kuerdas Band Live at Dagkot Festival in Cabadbaran City

Kuerdas Band had to travel to Cabadbaran City for an out-of-town show a week ago. This was in celebration of the City’s Dagkot Festival. The new members were looking for some new great experience and the Dagkot Festival gig simply made the way for it. The newest Kuerdas Band members haven’t gone to as far as Compostela Valley, Nabunturan, and San Francisco Agusan del Sur, thus accepting the out-of-town show at Agusan Del Norte is one whole new undertaking for all the members of Kuerdas Band.

There were some apprehensions prior to the booking. The weatherman initially warned of a typhoon surging in the area. However, the organizer assured them that it’s way past their area of jurisdiction. Kuerdas Band could only heave a sigh of relief!

Admittedly, not one of them had an idea as to the proximity of the place. They must have Googled it and realized that it’s tailing at the Northeastern part of Mindanao but it’s not too far from Leyte in the Visayas.

The anticipated day of the bum-aching 7 to 8-hour land travel was a perfect time for them to catch up with sleep as they had a gig the night previously at Pahayahay prior to hitting the road.

All set!

They had all their stuffs ready by then and after their regular gig, they were all set to go. They began hitting the road at 4:30 am and everyone was asleep the entire journey.

The crowd during the performance was amazing! They danced to the reggae beat and Kuerdas Band was just too inspired to perform for them! They gave it their all to the satisfaction of their audience. It was one beautiful experience for Kuerdas Band as a whole.

The Local Government of Cabadbaran was very warm and accommodating. They provided all the needs of the Band- foods, accommodation, transportation and the Talent Fee was generous enough for the experience.

Kuerdas Band Live at Veranza Mall’s Opening

Another mall has opened big time in Gensan. After the biggest mall in Mindanao, SM City Mall of Gensan opened for business last year, it’s Veranza Mall this time that’s taking the center stage. Dubbed as the Green Mall for its transparent roofing allowing natural light inside the mall itself thus saving ample electricity usages and costs. This is the first of its kind in the entire Mindanao.

In line for its Grand Opening slated last June 29, Kuerdas Band was invited to perform back to back with Juris. It was indeed an honor for the Band to be performing before the Generals.
