Happy 2015 everyone! This is the January roundup!
This month, we celebrated the birthdays of not one, not two, not three, but FIVE of our members, Janelle, Marcy, Marlon, Nomer, and Jan. This month also marks Shuffle Union's 15th Anniversary, and at least for this year, the first time we set foot on stage to play some wicked tunes!
Last January 13, we got together to play an impromptu set at Ngongis Bar in Tomas Morato QC, as we sent off our mates, The Busty Idiots, before their flight back home. They recently concluded their Philippine Tour with stops at Mandaluyong and Batangas Cities. There were three bands that night, The Busty Idiots, The Mighty Contras, and us. This was the first time Dennis (Snubnose) played with us on stage. Needless to say, we had such a great time!
Last January 24, Shuffle Union was supposed to play at the Ba Ba Boom Time benefit gig at Legazpi, Albay, together with our mates, Neighbors and SMB. Unfortunately, last minute schedule conflicts prevented us from making the trip. We do hope to come down again and check out the very active Bicol scene in the near future. Judging from the pictures, we assume it was a blast!
Finally, we conclude the inaugural month with another set for the January offering of Move Up Hi Fi last January 30 at Muzack Sports Bar, Makati. Manila Standard Time became a reunion of sorts as we played with friends The Dandimites and The Go Signals who both played awesome scorchers!
Videos and pictures can be found here.
We wish to thank the guys behind Move Up Hi Fi as well as the The Dandimites' keyboardist for lending us his drumming skills for the night. Thanks should also be given to Eldie and Dante of FSS for jamming with us. A great gig to cap off the first month of the year!
See you all next month!
