Intimate and Authentic Performances

Big venue concerts are a great experience for both its audience and the performers. It’s a chance to see your favorite artists live as they challenge themselves by giving all they’ve got in the hopes of putting on a show we won’t soon forget.

But, the bright lights and spectacular production value of these events can also create a barrier and limit the interaction between artists and their fans. Eager to bridge the gap and catch the vibe of local gigs or lounge performances, Stages is putting up a 10-show acoustic concert series featuring their pool of talent that they are simply calling, Stages Sessions.

Stages Sessions will be held at the 26th St Bistro by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at the ground floor of the Net Lima building in Bonifacio Global City. The venue may be scaled down, but it makes for the perfect place to create engaging interaction between artists and audience that make for an intimate afternoon of music. Given complete freedom for their hour to 2-hour long show, each of the artists scheduled to appear can give authentic insight to the songs they’ve chosen in set lists and interact with the audience to achieve a level of closeness that wouldn’t be possible in larger venues.

Followers, fans, friends, and family who are unable to attend these events will also be pleased to hear that these shows will also be taken digitally and posted on YouTube and SoundCloud to be shared to others who might want to see or hear their favorite artists in a different light.

The first of the Stages Sessions was held on Sept.13 at 5 p.m. and featured one of Stages’ biggest stars, Christian Bautista.

Stages Sessions happens twice a month until the Jan. 24 2016. Other artists lined up for their own shows include: Ryan Sy, Aicelle Santos, Bullet Dumas, Sheila Valderrama, Morisette Amon, and Hayden Kho.
