Greenwich Pizza #UltimateBandkada Search Season 2 Finals

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

The moment I stepped in Valkyrie last Saturday night, the feeling of the first and last time I joined a battle of the bands competition sinked in. It's nerve-wracking but at the same time super exciting! <3


I feel the thrill of every supporter who went to Valkyrie to show support to the eight finalists of the Greenwich #UltimateBandkada competition. Each band were given the opportunity to show off what they've learned the past weeks by performing their spins on this year’s Greenwich song that has to be a mash-up of at least two different music genres: rock, pop, hiphop, edm, or regae.
For the record, the 1st Placer wins P100,000 + management contract + recording contract while the 2nd placer gets P60,000 and 3rd Placer wins P40,000.

The show was opened by the Greenwich #UltimateBandkada Season 1 Champion B-Boys. Missed hearing OPM Alternative live! :D

After a long time, I also got to enjoy Martin's company while watching the bands compete! I rarely go to events lately because of work *woops* :D

Before the winners were hailed, all the barkada in the house were entertained with different performances!

Thyro and Yumi, real-life couple musician, sang their winning piece at Philpop 2013: Dati. Their performance brought so much feels, tbh! <3

One of the judges, Armi Millare, also performed onstage along with her band Up Dharma Down. They never fail to capture everyone with their soothing performance of Tadhana and Oo. Love this band to bits. <3

Every band presented their different takes on their Greenwich songs, but the three bands below prevailed in the competition:

2nd Runner Up: Happy Ending

I know they'll make it on the list of winners because of their nice reggae take on their own Greenwich song. Brilliant composition as well! :D

1st Runner Up: ABCG

ABCG also stood out among the audience because you can tell from the beginning that they are performance and they how to interact with the crowd!

Champion & Favorite ng Barkada Awardee: Plethora

Hailing them as the champion is a no-brainer! Musicality and words combined, for me, were their winning assets in the competition. I saw Greenwich's TVC playing in my head as they sing their piece out.
