Markus Highway is rocking out at Rappler HQ.
The band is led by Marcus Adoro, former guitarist of iconic Filipino rock band, the Eraserheads. He is joined by Don Leyretana and Don Buenaventura both on guitars and backup vocals, Duanne Perreras on bass, and Almond Raquiza on drums.
The group has been making music since 2012, releasing a 12-song debut album in 2008 called Behold, Rejoice! Surfernando is Hear Nah.
Since then, the band has kept busy, going around surfspots like La Union, Baler, and Siargao and everywhere in between.
Calling themselves “Banda ng Barrio,” Markus Highway plays a blend of surf rock, classic rock, blues, and folk, characterized by guitar-driven songs that don’t need much special effects.
