The Reo Brothers Band story
After the typhoon, the family decided to relocate to Manila to continue living there. As they traveled with biscuit, candy and a 500-ml bottle of water on hand with great courage and enduring patience to survive, they made it through in two days to successfully arrive in Manila. The place is new to them but all they could believe is that no matter what, it’s up to the heaven’s sake armored by their trust to God.
One time, Reynaldo Otic, the father and band manager of the band, remembered that someone on December 22,2012 gave a calling card to them and that is Mr. Reynaldo Fuentes a Band adviser, and so they contacted him immediately. Through Mr. Fuentes’ connection Mr Tom Banguis Jr., a businessman, they planned and gave the group a try through a stage presentation. The crowd was satisfied and loved their presentation a lot and so it’s a call for the start of their career.
What do you think, do the Reo Brothers Band deserves a big break?
