The 90s was a turning point in Philippine music history.
Filipino bands ruled the airwaves, released hit song after hit song and dominated the musical-landscape of the time. Heralded as the most prolific era for bands in the Philippines, the music of the 90s, up to this day, rings loud and clear in the ears of listeners, both young and old alike, bridging the generations.
On January 31 and February 1, 2020, four male vocalists from that legendary period will come together at the Music Museum in a two night, acousticized concert entitled 90s FRONTMEN. Jett Pangan (The Dawn), Dong Abay (Yano), Basti Artadi (Wolfgang) and Wency Cornejo (Afterimage) will be together on stage, for the first time ever, in a show which promises a nostalgic return to the music they created almost 30 years ago. Relive the music of the 90s with the 90s Frontmen.
