Louie Ocampo marks 45th years with a grand concert titled “Composer Ka Lang”

Composer, arranger, and media celebrity Louie Ocampo is set to mark his 45th anniversary in the entertainment business with a concert series titled “Composer Ka Lang” at The Theatre in Solaire Resort on February 4 & 5, 2023.

Produced by Viva Live Inc., in cooperation with Solaire Resorts Entertainment City, Composer Ka Lang stars Ocampo and features famous artists who will perform his hit songs.

These are Sharon Cuneta, Basil Valdez, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Marco Sison, Katrina Velarde, Janine Tenoso, Lyca Gairanod, and Jim Paredes & Boboy Garrovillo of the APO Hiking Society on February 4 & 5; Zsa Zsa Padilla and Sarah Geronimo on February 4; Regine Velasquez on February 5 and other surprise guests.

The show will focus on the music that Ocampo has created over the years as well as his experiences and memories as the favorite songwriter and arranger of some of the biggest names in the business.

Ocampo started out playing the piano and the organ as a child. This was followed by composing. His earliest hit songs were Maghihintay Ako Sa’yo recorded by Anthony Castelo, Hagkan popularized by Sharon Cuneta and Ewan by the APO Hiking Society. Ewan, co-written with world-famous classical pianist Rowena Arrietta bagged Second Place at the Second Metro Manila Popular Music Festival in 1979.

Ocampo soon became a popular music director and arranger but he kept up with his songwriting and has since then produced some of the biggest and most enduring hits in the area of Philippine pop music.

Among these are: Ikaw by Sharon Cuneta, Tell Me by Joey Albert, You Are My Song by Martin Nievera, Say That You Love Me by Basil Valdez, Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin by Joey Albert, Don’t Say Goodbye by Pops Fernandez, So Many Questions by Side A, Kahit Isang Saglit by Vernie Varga, Si Aida Si Lornat si Fe by Marco Sison, Babalik Ka Rin by Gary Valenciano, Closer You And I by Gino Padilla and many others.

‘The Juans set for solo major concert this October’

After releasing their first full-length, all-original album during the first quarter of 2022, The Juans are now set to hold their first major concert.
And The Juans are doing it at the storied Araneta Coliseum on October 23, 2022.

The band, Carl Guevarra on vocals and keys, Japs Mendoza on vocals and guitar, RJ Cruz on acoustic rhythm guitar and Chael Adriano on bass, are all in and excited for “The Juans Live in Araneta.”

“This is a culmination of all our hard work for the past few years,” said singer-songwriter Carl Guevarra. “We’ve been at this for several years now as The Juans and we feel that we’ve been working all this time to get to this point,” he added.

Songwriter and singer Japs Mendoza concurs saying, “we’re so excited to do this. Every band has a dream venue to play and the Araneta Coliseum is one of those. It is for us as well.”

RJ Cruz and Chael Adriano, added that this concert is for their very supportive fandom, The Juanistas.

“They’ve been with us since the start, some of them have been there kahit nung wala pa kami,” RJ

Cruz said. “This will be a celebration of the music with our dear Juanistas,” chimed in Chael Adriano.

Cruz and Adriano are late additions to The Juans, joining the group when Guevarra and Mendoza revamped the original lineup.

“We almost gave up a few years ago,” said Carl. “But it’s a good thing we didn’t. We told ourselves we should go the extra mile for the band and our fans, and we should keep writing songs and I guess it paid off. We’re now actually going to have a concert at the Araneta Coliseum.”

Fans and Pinoy music fans can expect The Juans to play their hits “Hindi Tayo Pwede,” “Lumalapit” “Atin Ang Mundo,” “Hatid” and new fan-fave songs “Anghel,” “Dulo” and even their cover of “Balisong.”
The Juans Live in Araneta is a co-production between KDR Music House and Viva Live, Inc. Tickets will be available starting July 17 via Ticketnet outlets and online: www.ticketnet.com.ph. Guests will be announced at a later date.
