Can you guess why Aegis band members won’t judge singing competitions?
Singers who have made their mark in the music industry make good judges of musical competitions. And when it comes to Pinoy rock ballad, the band Aegis definitely stands out.
However, none of the band members would want to be a judge in any singing competition.
“Sa amin kasi mahirap kasi hindi kami naghihiwalay. Kailangan ‘pag mga guesting, kailangan buo kami. ‘Yan kasi ‘yung nagiging problema sa ibang banda, iyon minsan ang nagiging cause ng paghihiwalay,” said the members of the band in an interview with select members of the entertainment media on Friday during their rehearsal.
“Kaya mahirap ‘pag kami lang tatlo siyempre gusto din namin kasama ‘yung buong grupo,” added by lead vocalist Juliet Sunot.
They admitted that they have been offered solo contracts.
“Sa’kin ah, meron nag-a-ano sa’kin pero ‘di ko na maiwan ‘yung grupo kasi sa taga na namin magkakasama, 15 pa lang ako magkakasama na kami, kasi maganda talaga ‘yung samahan namin, kahit paminsan nag-aaway kami, nagkakasundo din agad,” Juliet continued.
Aside from Juliet, the band members include her sisters Mercy and Kris on vocals; Rey Abenoja on guitars (the only male member); Stella Pabico on keyboards; Rowena Pinpin on bass, and Vilma Goloviogo on drums.
Aegis is celebrating its 20th anniversary via a major concert on July 13 at the Araneta Coliseum titled “2oble Dekada: Ang Soundtrack ng buhay mo.” /vvp
