Numbers don’t lie and with 58,675,118 Youtube views to their name; the dynamic duo of Jayeslee has definitely made their mark in the music industry. Those impressive credentials further piqued my curiosity as I made my way to the 3rd floor of Robinsons Forum (Pioneer) last June 21, 2012 for the Philippine leg of their concert entitled Jayeslee Live In Manila. I saw a couple of their Youtube covers prior to their concert and was impressed by their musicality but as any concertgoer will tell you live performances are a whole new ballgame.

NKOTBSB in Manila Concert Review: A Slice of Boyband Heaven

NKOTBSB in Manila Concert Review: A Slice of Boyband Heaven

I am very much a 90s girl. I listen to 90’s music at work, I watch Dawsons Creek during my free time, and I was, and still am, a huge fan of 90s boybands. I don’t know why I love the 90s so much, probably because I was in high school during the ‘90s, and like most highschool kids my world revolved around my teen idols. So you can imagine my glee when I found out that super groups New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys would be having a concert in Manila. I forced myself to not watch any of their previous tour performances online just so I could feel the magic on June3, 2012 at SM Mall Of Asia when NKOTBSB Live In Manila came around. And boy, was it a good decision!

After performing at the Ayala Live event last year, power pop band We The Kings returned to the Philippines on May 28, 2012 to headline their own show at Hard Rock Café in Makati. There’s no denying the popularity of the band in the country, the words We The Kings and Travis Clark often become trending topics on social networking site Twitter. True enough, the energy of the fans (of all ages, we might add) was palpable the night of the concert.

New Kids On The Block: How the Boys from Boston, Massachusets Blew the World Away

Title: New Kids On The Block: How the Boys from Boston, Massachusets Blew the World Away
Written by Jamie Ortega

They made us reach for our dreams "Step By Step", and when things were too much to bear they reminded us to "Hanging Tough". Each song they sung was as breezy as "Summertime", and when we thought we’ve finally outgrown them they’d sing "Please Don’t Go Girl". With songs as sweet and lovely as these there is no doubt in anyone’s mind why Jordan, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood made many a girl scream in the late 1980s to the early 1990s. Styling is very much a part of any boy band, and this writer will always remember the New Kids On The Block boys for their slicked back ‘dos, leather jackets, and utterly charming smiles. Oh, and for an animated TV series they starred in, making them pretty much the only-quite literally-animated boy band in existence. But we are getting way too ahead of ourselves. For the second part of our MCS Exclusive let us relive the humble beginnings of New Kids On The Block!

Lifehouse Lights Up Manila Once More

Love songs are subjective- some people may label a tune as cheesy, while some people may find that same song very romantic. Kudos should definitely be given then to musicians who are able to craft ballads that form a perfect balance- they tug at the listener’s heartstrings without dipping off into the cheesy hemisphere. Rock band Lifehouse is at the top of the list in that regard.
