Flippin Soul Stompers a Mother's Day Treat

This Sunday, May 12, 2012, starting at 6:00 p.m., Concert at the Park treats all mothers to a soul-music program with the Flippin’ Soul Stompers, The Official Manila Soul Club Band, in celebration of Mother’s Day. Ms. Minette Padilla is program host.

Concert at the Park is a regular public service project of the Department of Tourism, under Sec. Ramon Jimenez, Jr., the National Parks Development Committee (NPDC), under Executive Director Juliet H. Villegas, and the People’s Television Four. NPDC Chief of the Cultural & Public Affairs Division Mr. Freddie A. Edos is the Executive In Charge of the project. Gie V. Arnold writes the script.

“From generations to generations, Manila has heard over a thousand bands of various genres and styles. Little did they know that most of today’s music was formed by the classier tunes of soul. Envisioned in bringing the masses to the root of modern music, Flippin’ Soul Stompers” was launched in April 2011, with veteran musicians from Put3ska and Juan Pablo Dream and fresh talents from Rub-A-Dub, The Hooligans and the Young Instigators as members. Currently the group is composed of Bing Austria (vocals), Ferdinand Holigores (bass), Andrei Paman (guitar), Paulo Alguesor (guitar), Ren Gamboa (drums), Eldie Siochi (trumpet), Dante Macabale (trombone) and Rudy Calimbas (tambourine and back-up vocals). As fans of soul music themselves, the band follows the examples of Otis Redding, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, The Funk Brothers, and Booker T and the MG’s. “It exemplifies the vision and goals of the Manila Soul Club that espouses the idea of educating the audiences of the unique rhythms of soul music. Both believe that by playing music “the old school way”, they will trigger a nostalgia that generations before appreciated and missed, and eventually draw the curiosity of today’s generation of the music’s distinctive tunes. Thus, the Club dubs the Flippin’ Soul Stompers the first of their official bands.

Admission to Concert at the Park is free of charge. The public is cordially invited.
