PHOTOS: Catching Up With Rivermaya band in Cebu

I will let you in on a secret: Rivermaya band, despite the multi-platinum record selling success, thousands of successful concerts here and abroad and millions of fans, is actually composed of very friendly, down-to-earth, kulit guys. (so kulit you have to be on your toes whenever they have sheepish looks on their faces :D) When you’re around them, they make you feel welcome. And when they’re around you, they’re just themselves – no rockstar attitude at all.

This is why, apart from being a fan of their songs, I love hanging out with them. Offstage, the Rivermaya guys – Mark Escueta, Mike Elgar, Norby David and Ryan Peralta – are just regular, funny and cool guys.

Let me prove that by sharing some of my photos with Rivermaya in Cebu ๐Ÿ™‚ Spent two days with some of my favorite guys. Enjoy!

Yes, they still used the piano even though there was a sign not to ๐Ÿ˜› The hotel management made an exception ๐Ÿ™‚
