It was one of those rare occasions when this mum gets to have a day off on a Saturday and went on to pursue a couple of things related to my passion ~ reading and music. I shall share all about the reading bit of my weekend off in a separate post. Meanwhile, let me share about my music experience at the Robinsons Malls’ Soundbites Music Festival.
One of my favorite local bands, Side A, kicks off this year’s Soundbites Music Festival at Robinsons Magnolia. It was my first time in this Robinsons Mall branch but I never had the difficulty locating the al fresco garden where the show is slated that day. I arrived at the venue a little past 6pm and everything was set up and just about ready for the show to start. A dinner feast was also prepared for VIP guests and I did enjoy the pesto pasta, as well as the beef salpicao and the desserts that was prepared for us.
The lovely lady trio of Silk opened the show with lively current tunes, most of which I hardly recognize given that it has been ages since I have listened to the radio or watched MTV. But familiar or not, I did enjoy their repertoire. They even included a couple of hits from the 80’s much to the delight of older people in the audience.
After the first set, a fun contest was held and members of the audience were asked to join. It was a pizza-eating contest and the boys group won over the girls group. The contestants all went home with gifts from Robinsons Malls.
Another exciting performance followed and this time around a group of dancers called Fireflies gave a very enthralling dance number/object manipulation. Apart from their cool dance moves, they wowed the audience with their skills at manipulating a hula hoop and balls fire! I have never seen something like this before so I was really captivated by their performance.
