The FilAm a capella singing sensations visit TFC Studio and Store, guest on BA and Adobo Nation
DALY CITY, CA, February 26, 2018 – After the much applauded performances of Bantay Bata Voices and Philippine Concert King Martin Nievera, ABS-CBN The Filipino Channel (TFC) is bringing in the number one college booked entertainment group of the year in the U.S. in 2016, Filipino American a capella singing sensation, The Filharmonic, to sing the U.S. national anthem at the Warriors Filipino Heritage Night presented by Tanduay Rum on March 25, Sunday, at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.
The Filharmonic — composed of Southern Californians Jules Cruz (Vocal Bass), Joe Caigoy (Tenor), Trace Gaynor (Tenor), Niko Del Ray (Beat Boxer) and VJ Rosales (Tenor) — showcases pop, R&B and 90’s nostalgia vocal harmonies that attracted the attention of Hollywood. This resulted in appearances in NBC’s “The Sing-Off” National Tour, Universal Pictures’ hit movie, “Pitch Perfect 2”, and several guest performances on CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden”.
The youthful and energetic group (except for Niko Del Ray who flew in from Los Angeles later in the day) and their manager Rose Buado dropped by the San Francisco Bay Area recently for a show in San Jose and to visit the TFC office in Daly City, to shop at the TFC store and to guest on TFC’s daily news show, “BA” and the weekly magazine talk show, “Adobo Nation”. Here are captured moments of their visit:
