There’s a new musical group to watch out in town, and it’s PLETHORA – the 2016 Greenwich Ultimate Bandkada Search Season 2 champion.
The group, composed of LJ Herrera (vocals/bass), Aldrin Isaguire (keyboardist), Jesser Pello (drums), and Andrew Isaguire (lead guitarist), wowed everyone with their fantastic piece that’s a mix between neoclassical metal and rock, with a touch of reggae and alternative twist.
Plethora bested seven other finalists in the Greenwich Ultimate Bandkada finals recently held at Valkyrie at The Palace in Taguig City.
The board of judges was composed of Civ Fontanilla (Viva Records), Yumi Lacsamana (Viva), Sheyee (Viva), Armi Millare (Up Dharma Down), and Denise Manahan (JB Music). They unanimously voted for Plethora which received 100,000php as their grand prize and a recording contract with VIVA records.The group also took home the title of Favorite ng Barkada after they successfully earned the most number of votes from the official online poll of the competition.
Plethora’s group members, who have been together for 15 years, said after their win: “We joined Greenwich Ultimate Bandkada because we really want to inspire, especially the youth. We want to break the stereotype that musicians are irresponsible and do drugs. We want everyone to know that through music, you can
be better, that you, too, can inspire.”
