The band performs pop, slow rock, and indie hits in different events such as concerts, receptions, and parties. They have participated in various band competitions, too.

When they play, they want to enjoy every bit of it, and make their audience enjoy their live music.

How would you describe your perfect gig/rock concert?

Perfect gig siguro ‘yung maraming nakikisabay kumanta sa mga musikang gawa namin. ‘Yung marami ang nakiki-headbang at nag-e-enjoy sa mga kanta namin.

What made you decide to join Pambansang Muziklaban?

We want to share our music with everyone.

“Nais rin namin ipakita na OPM pa rin ang the best!”

Why do you think Pambansang Muziklaban is the best rock battle in the Philippines?

“It encourages young and aspiring musicians like us na gumawa pa ng mga orihinal na musika”

It gives chances to all musicians around the country. Isipin mo mula Luzon hanggang Mindanao, may chance para makasali. Lahat may chance para maipakita ang musika sa bawat lugar nila.

Why do you think you deserve to be the next Red Horse Muziklaban 2016 Grand Champion?

We have our own unique kind of music na mai-ooffer namin sa mundo ng rock and roll. Ibibigay namin ang lahat para sa finals.

“Buwis-buhay ika nga.”

Para sa inyo, ano ang rock and roll?

“Ito ang dugo na umaagos sa aming mga katawan.”

Sa bawat tunog ng gitara at palo ng drums, damang dama namin iyon. Buong pusong ihahatid sa nakikinig para lahat ay sabay-sabay na tumalon at mag-headbang. Ang rak en rol ay parang isang kapatiran na ‘pag narinig mo pa lang ang katagang rock and roll, alam mo na ‘yun. Parang nae-excite ka na hindi mo mapigilan
