We already have our first tropical storm in the Philippines I know.Rainy season has officially started.So the questions is,have you already have your summer beach party?Hope you did!At any rate,we Filipinos love going around regardless of the season.Yes, we cannot say that our travel end with the summer season.As a matter of fact,many airplane companies do sell promo tickets during rainy season.I personally had my most memorable vacations during July-September season.
Speaking of beach parties, I remember the BLOOMFIELDS Beach Concert last time in Matabungkay Beach Hotel Batangas.

Here's a short description of the band members from their official facebook page:
Lakan Hila - Lead Guitar and Vocals
Dino Pascual - Rhythm Guitars and Vocals
Louie Poco - Bass and Vocals
Rocky Collado is fondly called “Gene Krupa of the Philippines” and “Doctor of the drums” due to his unparalleled talent in drum playing. His famous rendition of “Little B” is always a highpoint in their performance. Rocky is also a very talented singer, a gifted visual artist and the resident “talker” of the band.
Lakan Hila plays the lead guitar and the keyboard. He comes from a family of musicians which explains his proficiency in virtually any instrument he attempts to play. Lakan is responsible for the amazing leads during instrumentals often playing the keyboard with his guitar still firmly strapped to his chest.
Louie Poco is the bass player and the master of rock and roll showmanship. He is often seen jumping off stages, standing on tables and doing all sorts of maneuvers. He is also the go-to guy for blaring songs. He has the perfect raspy, high-pitched voice for authentic rock and roll.
Dino Pascual is the youngest member of the group. He plays the rhythm guitar and is also the resident balladeer. He has a strong but soothing voice that is always a hit with the ladies. His acoustic roots also allowed him to bring diversity to the band’s repertoire.
They opened the night with their of renditions of classic Beatles hits like “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, “In My Life,” “Hey Jude,” “Blackbird,” “A Hard Day's Night,” “Twist & Shout,” as well as hits like “Crazy Little Thing Called Love among others.We were on our feet early on.I really love the youthful.My memories raced a few years back.Let's admit it, we all got excited with this group of young lads on suits with their guitar.
After the break though, the band members stripped their suits and on their beach shirts.they were full of energy, especially Rocky Collado and Lakan Hila. They were very so into their gig.You can see how they enjoy what they do.At one point, each of them went around and teased the crowd.Rocky gulped a bottle of San Mig light while Lakan played the guitar on the table.Caught all of it with my camera!!!Twas a fun night!!I am a fan all over again!
game kung game! :)
