Jollibee beefs up its line up of ambassadors with the addition of pinoy rock icon Bamboo. I would have not thought that Bamboo would join the team because he seems so serious to be a part of the Jollibee family. He has this rock star aura that makes you think twice before approaching him a photo or signature. I guess I don’t know him that well.
“People always associate musicians with being cool or astig. The think we’re unapproachable, but I’m really just a regular guy who enjoys the simple things in life .” said Bamboo. Thankfully, I was given a chance to get to know him more. I saw and experienced a different side of Bamboo that we don’t usually see on television. We were able to penetrate his leather jacket and know him more through stories from former bandmate Mark Escueta, musical director Ria Osoria, Camp Kawayan graduates Myk Perez and Juan Karlos Labajo, and loyal fan Lourraine Seguirre.
Not only did we get to know him, we also got to enjoy his performances while beefing up with the new Jollibee Garlic Pepper Beef. Juicy beef strips in flavorful peppers sauce, topped with toasted garlic bits. Available at all Jollibe stores from Mondays – Fridays for only P50.
That night he sang, Noypi, Man In The Mirror, Ulan, Probinsyana, Much Has Been Said, and Beep Beep. As part of the program members of the media were grouped for a rockeoke contest. Together with Bamboo they sang Hallelujah, 214, Elesi, and Tatsulok.
Here’s one of Bamboo’s performances that night. Watch it on HD and enjoy.
Bamboo has been in the industry for 20 years and he continues to reinvent himself and his music, reflecting his deep passion for his craft. Jollibee made a right choice, and his song Noypi explains it all.
