A fan of Rivermaya is hoping that the 90s band will have a reunion concert
The Voice Philippines coach Bamboo Mañalac has this reaction when asked about a Rivermaya fan’s request to watch the band reunite in a concert.
In the 90s, the said band that is composed of Bamboo, Rico Blanco, Nathan Azarcon, Mark Escuerta, and Perfecto de Castro, was among the popular bands. Despite their success, Bamboo, the vocalist, decided to leave the band in 1998. He was the band’s frontman since 1994.
Although the band went through that major change, their songs continue to linger in the hearts of their fans. Based on the article in PEP, a fan expressed hope that someday Rivermaya will do a reunion concert.
To recall, their contemporary Eraserheads held a reunion concert last year which became a star-studded event as many celebrities were spotted enjoying the song of the iconic band.
In line with a fan’s hope to see Rivermaya’s members perform together again, Bamboo said that he is not totally closing his doors but the path he is leading is not something that he would want to go back to the past.
He said that he feels the fan. “I will never say never, but then the kind of artist that I’m trying to be right is someone who tries to move forward. I cannot imagine doing that again, like going back again. We can hang out at a house or have dinner or something, but then, to play again?” he said.
Bamboo also stressed that fans should imagine that he and his former bandmates haven’t performed together for a long time and that he already formed a sense of family with the people he plays with now.
“I’m pretty loyal to my guys, so, what happens to my band now? I mean, I understand we want to make a living, right? I have to take care of my guys at the same time,” he added.
Bamboo also said that he knows Rivermaya is out there and doing its own thing. He added that the band will always be part of him and he still performs the songs of the band.
However, the singer said, “I understand what people think ‘coz when you have other groups, like having reunions and stuff… I’ve never been a fan of reunions myself, whether it’s any artists like The Police or whatever. I like retaining the memory of them when I saw them for the first time, Sting or whoever.”
Bamboo also stressed reunion has a different kind of energy but he reiterated that he will say never.
