A new band is being introduced, but it is their manager thatgot most of the attention.
Maraming puwedeng pag-usapan sa pinakabagong bandangipinakilala ng Galaxy Records, ang Kinta.
Launched on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 9, sa isang bar saTimog, the band is composed of lead vocalist Mark Gerald Esguerra, who used tobe with the band The Immaculates; lead guitarist-backup vocalist Ern Gatdula;guitarist-backup vocalist-songwriter Eman Garcia; bassist-backupvocalist-songwriter Job Agayatin; and drummer-percussionist Jesus "Jon" SantosJr.
Si Mark ang composer and singer of a quite popular song inthe mid-‘90s, "Girl," na ni-remake ngayon ni Erik Santos sa kanyangbagong album.
Included ang "Girl" sa 11-track debut album ng Kintathat also includes the carrier song "Luv," produced by Francis Reyes of The Dawn,and the planned second single na "Sayang."
Ang producer and discoverer ng Kinta ay ang sikat na PBAplayer na si Kenneth Duremdes ng Coke.
But it was Kinta's manager, Jet Magdangal, that got most ofthe attention during the question and answer interview.
Pinatawag ng isang manunulat si Ms. Magdangal sa harapan,initially to be asked kung paano nagsimula ang grupo. Nagkuwento siya na datisiyang talent coordinator ng Eat Bulaga! in the late ‘90s. Through Kenneth, she was offered to find a producer for a new band and so,even without experience in producing, she took on the challenge herself.
Second question: Kaano-ano niya ba siJolina Magdangal, having the same surname? Second cousin niya pala si Jolens,their fathers being first cousins.
Third question: Ano na ang status nilani Wendell Ramos? Ikinagulat ito ng lahat. Si Jet pala ay naging asawa ng matineeidol.
Hiwalay na pala sina Wendell at Jet at annulled na ang kasalnila since 2004. They have an eight-year-old son na tinatawag na "LittleWendell" dahil kamukhang-kamukha ng ama.
At this point, minabuti na ng nagku-coordinate ng interviewto focus the questioning back to the band kung kaya't nakaligtas si Ms. Jet safurther probing.
