Ok but not exceptional

The music is not the best, or the worst. It is ok if you have a night when you are out of idea's and want to kill time.

Brilliant fun and well worth seeing. Saw them two nights before Songkran and the night after Songkran. They were superb the first time I saw them and great the second. Performance was diminished slightly because I imagine they were pretty hung over still fron Songkran celebrations (You try performing on new years day? Not easy). But they were still awesome...

Have nothing good to say. Their performance literally gave me a headache and made me leave early. I was not happy.

While the Filipino band is friendly and energetic, their musical capability is poor. Surely not worth the visit to Lamai (from Chewang). As for the the Shamrock cafe, the environment is nice though there's not enough ventilation as you move further inside. The food is acceptable but expensive. I guess part of the cost pays for the band.

I've seen many Filipino bands (my fiancee is Filipina from Samar and I travel there a lot!) and most play more pop ballads and easy listening, but these guys ROCK HARD. Guitarist Baby from Davao is clearly the star with amazing charisma AND talent, but the whole band is tight. They smile a lot and seem to love playing, not... More

This Band is awseome & rock like hell. Super show with these top musicians from the Philippines. Especially the 2 girls deliver a cool & entertaining performance that keeps you quite speechless. Ovada - a 100% must for all rock music lovers!

These guys perform in the Shamrock Irish bar in Lamai and are simply one of the best bands we have seen! We have also got to know them well and consider them friends. We recommend you pay them a visit and you will want to come back for more!
