All roads lead to Music Museum on September 26 to celebrate a milestone in the musical career of 3rd Avenue, fifteen years filled with great music and fond memories.

Paolo, the lead vocalist shares, “In the concert, we shall be highlighting our musical journey. From our humble beginnings, the struggles we faced, the triumphs we have earned and our evolution as young musicians from the original acoustic trio to the band that we presently have now.”
The band’s name was inspired by Three of A Kind, Ledesma’s favorite trio, the avenue came from the fact that their university was situated in Taft, and third, because they started a three man band.
What can people expect from the concert? Ledesma answers quickly, “We will perform a lot of classics from the 80s and 90s, songs that were national anthems of Gen Xers which the millennial dig so much now.”
Expect covers and mash ups of recent hits, as well as OPM classics, Gary Valenciano, Regine Velasquez, Martin Nievera, Sharon Cuneta, Jaya and Smokey Mountain.
Special guest performers are Jake Zyrus and Morissette Amon.
Ledesma and Gatmaitan conclude, “For all of you who will troop to the Music Museum, we guarantee you one enchanted night with songs that you can sing along with, all the good, hugot and mushy stuff, the great love songs we all grew up with and the ditties that will forever remain in all our collective playlists. We thank you for embracing and loving us.”
