Jay Justiniani Sings Again, Now with the Fireflies

6:44:00 AM

 

"Once an artist, always an artist," maybe this is a phrase that I could define Jay Justiniani, the former vocalist of Cueshe and now the lead vocals for the band "Fireflies." After seven (7) years and the onslaught of Covid19, Jay is back to singing, and this time he sings with the "Fireflies" band.

Early this September, a gig happened in Fiyo Bagi Restaurant and Bar. It is the relaunched of the "Fireflies" band together with a new set of band members. The current members of the group were composed of Junjie Dosdos, the keyboardist when he was in Cueshe, now Fireflies' songwriter and rhythm guitarist. JC Del Rosario IV is also a songwriter and bassist for the band. RM Tolentino, the drummer. Pat Galut, the lead guitarist. Of course, Jay Justiniani, Cueshe's former vocalist and now the lead vocals of the group "Fireflies."

Right after a few song performances of the group, which include pieces from the former band where everyone is familiar with Jay singing, a press conference was held together with some bloggers and media present. It was exclusive enough for a small number of individuals and platforms to cover print, TV, and online.


 
With so many questions to ask, I was more interested in the dynamics and process of how they create their songs for the new band, the Fireflies. According to Jay, "... luckily with this group nga, I'll tell you again, Junjie is a resolute writer, I also try to write songs and JC comes over there... that's a nice thing about it and then everybody is just everybody... hindi na-oofend... everybody comes to creating better songs." So, I can say that in this group they are more open and collaborative with the songs they make. It is indeed a good opportunity for a band.

With their songs, according to Junjie, who was from Cueshe, it is really hard not to sound like your former band because that's your style but they are striving not to make it the same as from their past song pieces.


A quick trivia about the band Fireflies, according to the band they named it Fireflies because they wanted to be that spark or a flicker of light, especially in dark times. The group is currently managed by Ms. Grace. To experience live band performance get in touch with them at 09923150106 or you can visit their FB page https://www.facebook.com/fireflies.ph for more info and updates on their gigs.

The night was great and being a person who loves to listen to music, especially live performances, it was a blast. And two other bands performed that night, the Rotom Olkis and Static Edge.
v Looking forward to Fireflies' music!
