dana point 5/31/07

this is the first time ive ever video’d the band at a gig. its ruff around the edges for sure, but i just wanted to go through the entire process of video, downloading to youtube, and then posting to this blog.

we performed tonight for a mixer for the vendors at the Dana Point Boat Show in Dana Point, CA. the video is of the very beginning of the evening. i decided to shoot this video earlier rather than later, since the sun was setting over the hill. more strange videos of us to be posted in the future…

Romeo and Amy 5/19/07

last saturday, we performed at seven degrees in laguna beach for the wedding of Romeo and Amy Tajanlangit.

The Newlyweds

we played during the cocktail celebration, up above the waterfalls. it was a beautiful setting.

chris on bass, gabe on djembe, and joe perry played percussion. mike “smurf” murphy, who was a guest at the wedding, sat in on congas.

my nephew canon was a ring bearer, and his daddy david was the best man.

my father holding his new baby niece, ciel azul carillo.

my mother, my sister, my bother mike and brother david were guests for this wedding celebration.

knyght ryder played…

and everyone danced!


i was the MC for the evening, and i wore a traditional barong. this was my first time wearing one. a few years ago i asked my father why we never wore barongs growing up, and he told me he never really liked the way they looked. for me, it was fun to wear something that honored my filipino ethnicity.

as you can tell, this was a family wedding. Romeo has been an extended brother to me since high school. Amy is now my sister. i look forward to posting photos of their babies in the future…
