Getting more and more popular by the minute, The Ambassadors entered the music scene of the Philippines humbly starting off with original punk/pop-music. Composed of talented instrumentalists and musicians from Cebu, The Ambassadors continues to conquer the music band industry not just in the country but even with their tours and concerts abroad.
I first heard this band’s earlier songs when I was in high school and I couldn’t help myself but be drawn to their music, well at that time, I was still in search of indie bands whose songs I can include in my player. The Senseless Song went viral, and I even can still remember the words to this song until now.
During the Bis-rock Era in Cebu, one could never forget their song Gugmang Gi-atay, sang by Cebuanos even up to this time. The song was a phenomenon back then that every time they sing it during bar gigs, the audience, knowing every word of the song, would sing along with them. But it was not long when the band changed direction and decided to let go of the Bis-rock fame – after all, it was just a phase in music. They decided to stick to the kind of music they can best work with. And they did make the right turn at the right moment – now renowned even in the national music band scenes and continuing to grow as an independent music band inside and outside of the country.
Releasing songs after songs, At the Hospital became my new fave punk tune.
