AVA 2061It was not long ago when five enthusiastic music professionals got power jam into one piece with the leadership of Patrick Querubin, who also came with the title of the band Power Jam, which later changed into Power Jam Live, adding that spice to live music, whilst jamming the songs the way they want, having their own power to jam on stage and giving the audience a different, but a delightful taste of music.

 

The Power Jam Live quintuple is composed of two lead vocalists, Camille Prado, being the female vocalist and the only female soul of the band, Nat Saroot, being the male vocalist and youngest among the five, who also plays the sampler. Joey Emmanuel, being the guitarist, and Roldy Mabbayad as the Bassist and backup singer, also brother of Patrick, who is not only the leader of the band, but also the drummer and a singer. All are from the Philippines, except for Nat, who is from Thailand. They also mentioned wherever they go, they go back to Thailand as it鈥檚 their home base.

AVA 2221Having met and formed in Bangkok five years ago it is pleasantly surprising how far and strong they鈥檝e come, initially having played in various hotels and clubs they decided to audition for Hard Rock Cafe, Bangkok, as they considered it a privilege. From a great number of bands with huge competition they qualified to perform for Hard Rock Cafe. From then till now they鈥檝e performed in numerous Hard Rock Cafes all over Asia, including Bangkok, Pattaya, Ho Chi Minh, Macau, Yangon and so on, and Hard Rock Cafe Tianjin being their 8th venue and hoping to be the favourite of them all, as they experienced a warm welcome from the crowd on their first performance in here which has made their chills of winter disappear.

 

The specialty of Power Jam Live is their capability of performing and entertaining audiences in all sorts of genres without sticking on to one, simply they鈥檝e got them all. They stage songs of all genres from the late 50s to the modern days, being ever ready to supply the preferences of the guests and now are in the process of discovering the taste of the people in Tianjin and are also working on learning Chinese songs, as requested by some of you. Showing their keen interest in satisfying each and everyone in the crowd.

 

When I asked who their greatest influences were, they told me being a cover band they鈥檝e got a lot, that anyone who inspires them to sing also influences them. And the fact that they don鈥檛 have a solid playlist portrays, how much they try to empathize with the crowds, which are an essential quality of a live band. They have fun practice sessions after their performances. The secret of their success is that they also practice daily on their own wherever they are.

AVA 2156Five years ago...
Before Power Jam Live where were they? All were born with the immense passion for music, Patrick has been singing since he was seven and later giving the chance for younger singers he decides to learn to play the drums, but still is capable of singing whilst composing his own songs. Nat has been a sound engineer and is still a composer, and everyone else has been in the field of music after college, and will be life time musicians as they say.

AVA 2146From five years ago to now鈥
How has your music evolved as a band? I asked, 鈥淲e鈥檝e become better and tighter as a band鈥, says Patrick. And that they are trying each day to make their audiences feel the lyrics. And when I asked them what their biggest challenge was as a band, they said as any other band faces theirs was also the fact of getting along with each other as everyone is a different individual with different thinking patterns, but now they鈥檝e overcome that and, 鈥渞ight now we are like family鈥, said Patrick, This touched my heart. And they also mentioned that they got no specific direction as a band, but to go with flow serving their audience鈥檚 needs.

 

In their free time, they love to stay fit and healthy, which explains the statement Roldy made when I asked his age, 鈥測ounger than my age鈥. And they too love watching movies and rehearsing, whilst enjoying life sipping on their favourite drink like any of us. And when I asked them who do they acknowledge for who they are now, their answer pleasingly surprised me as they said 鈥淲e thank each other as we enjoy playing and working together as a band.鈥

AVA 3166Achievements鈥
Power jam was the overall winner of 鈥淏attle of the Bands鈥, winning the grand prize in 1996, and was also the first runner up in the song writing contest for MTV Asia in 1998. During these years only Patrick and Joey were a part of Power Jam, since they鈥檝e known each other for over 20 years.

 

Instruments鈥.
They carry their own instruments and they buy their own, since an instrument is the identity of a true musician. When I asked them if they鈥檝e got any special brands of instruments, Roldy answered me saying 鈥渘ice ones, expensive ones鈥. As a band who loves to travel, they鈥檝e left many opportunities they鈥檝e got as a result of their achievements as they strongly dislike to be framed in one place, which is a good thing, giving themselves the full exposure to crowds of various interests.

 

A note to the future bands in the making: 鈥淒o what you love, enjoy what you do and keep practicing each day and remember to never give up鈥.

AVA 2019Why Hard Rock?
Patrick says, 鈥淗ard Rock has class鈥. Of course, Hard Rock got Class not because of anything else, but because of the energetic customers at Hard Rock. And having performing in many places before Hard Rock, this has been the best place so far, so it鈥檚 always Hard Rock, they say.

 

Finally any last words I asked, just ROCK ON! , they said.

 

So why wait any longer? Go today with your family and friends to enjoy good music along with your favourite dishes and drinks at Hard Rock Cafe, Tianjin taking a break from your strenuous lives. Power Jam Live awaits your presence to enrich you with music like never before.
