Music enthusiasts and fans gathered for a night of excitement and entertainment as Tanya Markova headlined a youth concert, backed by Extra Movements Band and Cross Band as front acts, held last March 17, 2023. The event was made possible by the generous sponsorship of Justin Paul Pariño, manager of Fairtech 2LSystem.
The youth concert aimed to bring together young people who share a love for music, while also supporting up-and-coming bands like Extra Movements Band and Cross Band, both of whom showed remarkable talent and stage presence during their performances.
Extra Movements Band took to the stage first, performing pieces ranging from rock to alternative music genres. Their energy on stage was infectious, and the crowd roared with approval as they played their final song, “Lost in Between.”
Cross Band’s performance, on the other hand, showcased a unique fusion of rock and jazz. Their music was a perfect blend that kept the audience members swaying and nodding their heads to the beat. In the end, they graciously thanked everyone, especially Tanya Markova, for giving them the opportunity to play on the same stage.
Finally, Tanya Markova took the stage, blasting away with their ornate and quirky style that has become their signature. The band launched into energetic renditions of their hits, including “Disney,” “Linda Blair,” “Picture Picture,” and their latest single “High.” With each song, Tanya Markova’s lead vocalist, Norma Love, hyped up the audience with her amazing vocals and comical antics, while interacting with the crowd.
Justin Paul Pariño, the concert’s sponsor, was happy with the turnout and the enthusiasm of the crowd, saying, “It’s amazing to see how much passion these young musicians have, and the crowd’s response is a testament to their talent. It is a privilege for me to support young musicians and contribute to the local music scene.”
Tanya Markova’s triumphant performance capped off a night of great music, and the audience left the concert hall with nothing but smiles on their faces. The event showed that there is no better avenue for young people to express their creativity and passion than through music. The youth concert has not only highlighted and supported the local music scene, but it has also encouraged emerging musicians and bands to continue pursuing their dreams with relentless fervor.
