The producers of “’90s Live,” a concert featuring the soloists of ‘90s bands must be laughing their way to the bank.
Featuring Jett Pangan of The Dawn, Paco Arespacochaga of Introvoys, Wency Cornejo of After Image, Cookie Chua of Color It Red, Medwin Marfil of True Faith, Naldy Padilla of Orient Pearl, Dong Abay, Lei Bautista of Pretty in Pink—the concert held at The Theatre at Solaire was jampacked.
The mood was set right in by Jett Pangan who sang “Enveloped Ideas” popularized by The Dawn. It immediately had the crowd roaring with delight.
Each of the artists sang a signature of the band where they belonged. In the latter part of the show, they paid tribute to fellow artists by singing their songs as well like Francis Magalona’s “Kaleidoscope World,” Eraserhead’s “Ang Huling El Bimbo,” to other hits like “Multo Sa Paningin,” “Laklak,” and “Anong Paki Mo (Sa Long Hair Ko).”
It was a fun night where the artists and the audience just wanted to enjoy, themselves, which they surely did.

Derek Ramsay is one actor who knows to value commitment and loyalty. Up to now he is still with TV 5 and has no intention of transferring to another network.
Unlike other stars who signed up with TV 5 but chose to transfer later, Derek chose to stay with the Kapatid Network. He said he is happy with the way TV 5 has taken care of his career by giving him interesting projects like “Amazing Race Philippines,” “Kidlat” and his forthcoming action TV series titled “Amo” directed by Cannes Best Director Brillante Mendoza.
The network is likewise supportive of his other endeavors, especially in the field of sports, of which he is very much into. His home studio supported him when he competed in a Frisbee competition abroad.
What excites him now is the airing of Amo where he got to work with Mendoza for the first time. The series took nine months to make but is now in the can and ready for airing come August 20.
